Stop Your Whining!

I have said before, I like Bernie Sanders. I like him and what he stands for, and this is not about him at all. This is about some of his loudest supporters, who have been insufferable for a year, but … Continue reading

UPDATE: Apparently, Delegate Math is Hard

As you folks should know by now, I have not now, nor will I ever, demand that Bernie Sanders drop out of this primary race. He’s been a positive influence and a lot of his ideas are solid and will … Continue reading

What Good Old Days?

I know the (old) name of this blog is (was) “Please Cut the Crap,” but the name was always sardonic. While I like sarcasm, I save it for those who deserve it and have absolutely no use for cynicism. I … Continue reading
