Neoliberalism, My Ass

Continuing my rant… In this section, let’s talk about ideology for a bit. Imagine, if you will, that you come back from your Caribbean vacation to find that your house is flooded. You have $20,000 available to fix whatever needs … Continue reading

Tilting At the “Third Way” Windmill

This rant is long overdue. Sorry in advance, but it’s time someone said it… I’m tired of ideological purists on the far left side of the aisle telling me and many other actual liberals that we’re not really “progressive” because … Continue reading

Cutting it On Closed Primaries

Look, Bernie Sanders did better than I thought he would do. He did better than almost everyone thought he  would do, and I give him a lot of credit. That said, I’m a bit skeptical of the whole “revolution” thing, … Continue reading

Sending Messages and Holding “Them” Accountable

I’ve been around a long time. I’m not old, yet, but I’ve been around a while. No matter how long I’m around, however, I will never understand why PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade, sometimes called “emo progs,” but I’m not a … Continue reading

While Far Lefties Were Sleeping

Over the last few months/years, I have had PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) and the professional left tell me that the single biggest issue that we have to deal with is “income inequality.” The second biggest? College debt. The third biggest? … Continue reading

No Enthusiasm? Bull.

Voting Blue is the Only Progressive Choice. For Now.

I know many progressives who are absolutely committed to electing 5-6 hardcore progressives in every election, and that’s a good thing. I have no problem with that at all becaise we need as many progressives as possible in government.  Progressives … Continue reading

Digging Deeper, You Find the Real Problem

You know, it’s funny. PUBs (progressive unicorn brigade) and professional lefties constantly complain about things that Democrats supposedly do wrong or don’t do, and they love to apply blame to Democrats for everything, but they never delve very deeply into … Continue reading

Proof That Democrats are Progressive

Someone on Twitter dared diss my extensive list of Obama accomplishments just a little while ago. I’m certain he was a troll, especially given that he used one common argument, in which he put down the source, which is this … Continue reading

The Parties Have Never Been More Different. EVER.

There is not much that truly puzzles me these days. Not really, anyway. But one thing that continues to baffle me is the sheer volume of people on the left side of the aisle – including some who claim significant … Continue reading

Another Major Difference Between Parties: Sex Scandals

This primary season has been so long, it seems that a lot of people are forgetting that our ultimate goal needs to be to get rid of as many Republicans as possible. So, let’s have a little fun, shall we? … Continue reading

Grey Shades

I really get it. I do. Is there a human being on the planet who doesn’t want everything in life to be purely black or white? We want everything to be easy, not hard. everything in life should be either … Continue reading

BEWARE  of GOP Dirty Tricks or, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” — George Santayana With just over 3 months to go before the start of the Democratic National Convention beginning on July 25, we have … Continue reading

Yes We CAN! and We Have to!

Over the weekend, I was catching up on last week’s Stephanie Miller Show and I heard a “Bernie or Bust” type caller advise everyone that he will never vote for Hillary. I suspect he was a troll caller, since he … Continue reading
