The GOP Has Us Serfing, USA

I have been called many things over the years, so if you think calling me a capitalist is an insult, you’re barking up the wrong tree. I am a capitalist and I will be one until someone comes up with a system that does more for people. Winston Churchill once …

Don’t Buy the Republican Lie – We Are NOT Broke!

One of the most persistent lies Republicans tell to get people to vote for them is the one in which they claim the United States is too broke to afford to do things we have to do. This is an absolute lie. As you’ll see later on, we’re not even …

We Need Tax Reform, But Not the GOP Version

So, no that the current GOP has been skunked on their bid to take away your healthcare, they are about to turn their attention to their other pet issue; taxes. More specifically, they plan to cut them. Seriously. At a time when the so-called “president” is saber-rattling with North Korea …

Why Republicans Lie About the Debt Ceiling

As anyone who has read this blog on a regular basis knows, I am in no way a “Chicken Little” liberal. I tend to be what Stephanie Miller refers to as a. “Happy Clappy” liberal because I tend to take a bit of an optimistic outlook on most things and …

Cutting the Crap on Paul Ryan’s Lies on Twitter

This will be a quick one… Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Tweeted this out just now: An American company taxed at 44.6% here would only be taxed at 15% in Canada. How do we expect our businesses to compete globally? — Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 7, 2017 As you …

Why Americans Don’t Like Progressives: Case Study

Sometimes, the professional left says something true that is still self-defeating. Like the following: Look at David Corn’s reaction to a Lord Donny Tweet crowing about a stock market rally that has been ongoing for about 7 years. Then, I’ll explain why it’s really bad… Only 52 percent of Americans …

Jobs and Income: Democrats vs. Republicans

Every election season, unicorn progressives and the professional left try to entice me to vote for an independent or third party. Hell; over the weekend, one of them was already pushing Someone like that for 2020. As if we don’t have 2018 to worry about. This points to two of …

PCTC: No, Trump Didn’t Save 1,000 Carrier Jobs

We have all heard about the incredible job Donald Trump did in keeping all those jobs at a Carrier plant in Indiana. How could you not hear it? With the loudest media voices screaming about it, it was hard to miss. It was as if the new – nope, not …

Counting the Ways: The GOP Is Bad on Economy

Let’s make this easy. A lot of bad things have happened over the past 40 years and every single one of them is traceable to the Republican Party. That’s not hyperbole, really. I know, a lot of you believe that Democrats have done some horrible things, especially that Bill Clinton, …

The Republican Lottery Capitalist Model

As I said, this election and the next few after this cannot simply be a referendum on Donald J. Trump. The Republican Party has been broken for a while, and Trump is just the end result of at leas a half century of fealty. Progressives have to realize that we …

The GOP “Doubled the Debt,” Not Obama

I say this a lot, but this is an important concept that absolutely must be said and repeated ad nauseam until the average person gets it. The reason the debt has gone up under Obama is NOT because the government is spending too much money. Now, let me explain. This is …

Cutting it on the “Clinton #1 was Bad” Claim

What is it with so many progressives, who keep talking about the last Clinton Administration as if it turned the country into a hellscape? I mean, when you suggest that Bill will be living in the White House with President Hillary Clinton to unicorn progressives, you’d swear you just shot …

The Progressive Click-Bait Epidemic: Robert Reich

I am finally finishing my new book about the unicorn left, which will be finished as soon as I can finish the cover and upload it. The book is about the damage these people are doing to the progressive movement and what we can do about it. And one key …

The GOP’s Vision of an Economic Hellscape is BS

If you watched the Republican Convention a couple weeks ago, you saw a major political party tell you the United States is pretty much an economic hellscape. If you listened to their rhetoric and took seriously, you had to walk away convinced that The Grapes of Wrath was real and …

Don’t Give Me That Do-Goody-Good BS

Money is definitely a problem in the United States. I will not say otherwise. I mean, the fact that Congresscritters have to spend nearly every waking hour trying to raise money so they can keep their jobs is a major problem. It’s also a major problem that the holders of …

Repost: How to Win on Climate Change

One of the main purposes of this blog is to correct the record, but it has a secondary purpose, as well; I want to win elections and get the current incarnation of the Republican Party out of power and restore sanity to government. And one major reason we keep losing …

Correcting the Record: Minimum Wage Increases are Good for the Economy

One of the key points Republicans tried to make at the last debate on Fox Business was a fantasy in which someone making very little money makes more and it’s somehow disastrous for the economy. In fact, Ben Carson even claimed that “every time” the minimum wage increases, we lose …

Of Course We Can Afford it! We Already Pay for It!

Whenever Americans talk about the major societal overhaul this country needs, the most common refrain heard by the self-appointed “fiscally responsible” people in this country is, “How are we going to pay for it?” It sounds like a really responsible and very intelligent question, right? Only it’s not. It’s the result …

To Ben Carson and Republicans in General… On Deficits and the Debt Ceiling

I am in no way a “Chicken Little” liberal, as should be obvious from reading this blog. I’m not one for pronouncements of gloom and doom on anything to speak of, with one exception; the prospect of not raising the debt ceiling. If you’re one who thinks the effects of defaulting …

The Insanity of the GOP Approach to Deficits and Debt

The average American has a lot of debt these days, including a mortgage, a car loan, a few credit cards, perhaps some hospital bills; who knows? Debt has been a part of life for decades. Imagine you’re working and making $50,000 a year, and you’re suddenly hit with a debt of …
