Look at the Big Picture

I’ll get into this to a greater degree in a separate post, but we are not really as “polarized” as the media likes to claim. What we actually have is two really loud extremes; the right wing has both a short-term and a long-term goal of “winning,” while the far

Fight Smart

There is something about appearing to “fight” that seems to appeal to many “progressives.” It’s gotten somewhat pathetic, if I’m being honest. It’s pathetic because their impression of “fighting” is almost as bad as the right wing’s. Do you realize why so many Republicans who objected to Donald Trump “in

Avoiding Reponsibility

Many years ago, I was a very successful retail manager. My last retail management job featured me taking a small electronics store in a high-end shopping mall and turning it from a money loser to making a substantial profit within a year. I did such a great job that the

Being Liberal Means Being a Democrat…

There’s no other choice… Look, government is important to all of us. It is how we, as a society, manage to make society better and preserve our human rights. Strong government has been demonstrated to make us better as a people; it is how we all get together and do

A Message for Hardcore Bernie Stans

Who Are Unicorn Progressives?

Just yesterday, someone I know suggested that the Democrats are “pussies” (yes, he used that term) because they’re not demanding a recount hard enough. Now, I covered this in a previous post, but recounts are not easy under the best of circumstances. Also, there is a possibility that a recount

Republicans and Democrats Have Nothing in Common, Part One

You know, one of the most absurd things I hear and read on practically a daily basis is the outlandish idea that the two major political parties are somehow similar. And yet, the entire professional left seems to demand that we believe that both parties are largely two sides of

Stop Trashing Democrats; it’s Asinine

Right after I finished the last post, I started listening to and reading a bunch of professional lefties opine on just what “pussies” (their word, not mine) Democrats are. The reason? Because they haven’t embraced the “audit/recount” idea fully, to the point of starting a huge campaign to make it

Taking Advantage of Trump

If we do our jobs properly as Americans (NOT just as liberals/Democrats, but as Americans), Donald Trump is in for a world of hurt come January 20, 2017. It is very obvious that he and the Republican Party in general think he will essentially be the “boss” of the United
