Cutting the Crap on the Second “Debate.”

The most surprising thing about the coverage of last night’s debate came when I saw a breaking news alert from CNN saying that “Trump performed better than expected…” How is that possible? Was someone expecting the orange man-child to develop seizures or pull out a gun and fire at Clinton? The

More That Voters Need to Know About Donald Trump

It is difficult to address all of the issues that make Donald Trump unfit for the presidency, but after the last long post, which you can find here,  I realized quickly that I hadn’t done much more than scratch the surface. There will be a few other parts to this coming

The Trump Debate Crap Cut

I have been watching these debates for a long time. I remember sitting in my living room with my mom and hearing Gerald Ford tell Jimmy Carter that Eastern Europe wasn’t under Soviet Union influence. That was a single gap and it quite likely cost Ford the 1976 election. My,

Jesus Loved the Poor; He’d Never Vote Trump or the GOP

Can you claim to be a Christian and also plan to vote for Donald Trump? Sure. It’s a free country; if you want to call yourself a dog and bark to communicate, you can do that if you wish. It all depends on how accurate you perceive yourself as being.

Mourning Journalism

See, here’s the thing… I write a blog. Actually, to be truthful, I write a lot of blogs. You don’t know where a lot of them are because I ghostwrite them, but that’s another story. The point is, I write a blog. I use journalistic standards and I even use

Alt-Right, My Ass

I wasn’t sure how I felt about the suddenly-popular term “alt-right” at first, but now I flat-out reject it. Given that the Republican Party made a conscious decision to recruit racists and bigots into their fold way back in 1964 because they were tired of losing, how “alt” can the

No Room for Progressive Complacency

We really can’t afford to be complacent. I mean that more literally than I have ever meant it. Yes, I know – every election in the last 20 years has been “the most important in our lifetime.” You’re tired of hearing it. That’s just too damn bad, to be honest.

The Real Founders of ISIL

Donald Trump seems to be confused, but he’s not. When it comes to talking about ISIL/Daesh, Trump is doing what he’s done all along; his people are listening to and reading the professional right wing and he’s mimicking whatever they hear. This is because that is the only way he

Trump: Dead Man Walking? We Can’t Afford to Think So

I have been saying all along that Donald Trump is not running for president because he wants to be president. All of us thought he would have a snowball’s chance in hell because we figured the GOP and the RNC had the means to stop him. I am convinced that

Donnie, Paulie & Vlad? Is Trump a Clear & Present Danger to U.S.?

by @SueinRockville – Originally posted at Daily Kos Most people have no idea who Trump’s Campaign Manager Paul Manafort (aka “Paulie Walnuts”) really is. Wikipedia states that he has been involved in Republican political campaigns since 1976. Besides helping candidates win offices, he has been a vigorous lobbyist. His client
