Once Again, Mark Penn Gets it Wrong

There is an editorial in this morning’s New York Times that is so full of shit, I had to comment. It starts with a really bad headline. “Back to the Center, Democrats.” The reason I hate the headline is because it doesn’t match reality. This is actually par for the …

Repost: Cutting the Crap on Campaign Finances: “Wall Street” Doesn’t Support Dems. At All.

I’m reposting this because I feel that I need to. Also, WordPress is being buggy and won’t allow me to re-copy the tables below intact. But this is for everyone who’s told that Democrats are just as “beholden” to “corporations” and “Wall Street” as Republicans. It’s not even CLOSE, really. …

Why Lord Donny and the Pro Left are Wrong on Trade

And the reactionary left does its thing… so predictable and so stupid. I’ll get to today’s attempt to re-start the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, which should have been predicted by everyone, in another post, but I want to start with TPP and NAFTA. I mean, good Lord. Lord …

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 …

If the Election Goes to the House, They’ll Choose… Trump. Here’s Why

A lot of people have taken me to task for my belief that, given the opportunity to choose a president, I’m pretty sure the Republican-run House will choose… Donald Trump. I’ve had a lot of “political junkies” assure me that the House Republicans are aching for an opportunity to get …

When Unicorn Progs Lose Common Sense

Seriously, is this some sort of lefty psychosis? I was sent the following video this morning, with a plea to electors to do their job and not allow Donald Trump to become president. Essentially, these highly intelligent progressive celebrities made a great plea to electors to explain their job and …

An Open Letter to Electors

Dear 2016 Electors, I know. When you took this job, you figured it was just a matter of doing what was right for your party. You’re a long-time Republican and you wanted to do something really cool to show your party how much you love it. I truly get that. …

What have Democrats and Republicans Done? The Same, My Ass

This is totally separate from my series on the difference between current Democrats and current Republicans, but have you ever really compared the overall record of the two parties, over time? It’s pretty enlightening and shuts down those who claim the parties are the same. Put down the hallucinogenics. A list …

Trump Whines Again; This Time, We Should Listen

You know, for a guy who is always on about what a big man he is and how tough he will be on everyone we’re supposed to be afraid of, according to the Republican Party, Donald Trump sure does whine a lot. And when I say he whines, I am …

Press Discovers What We Knew All Along

So, finally… after the damage is done… NOW the press has figured out that there may be a problem with Trump’s (or any other narcissistic billionaire’s) massive conflicts of interest. In Saturday’s New York Times, A group of reporters finally seemed to notice that, well, Trump’s many overseas contacts and business …

Of Course They Have to Lie About How Bad Obama Is/Was

In this era of fake news that is infecting the electorate to such a degree, the lies about President Obama and the state of the country are becoming legendary. For example, the following meme has been floating around social media, and it is virtually 100% total crap. Check it out. …

The Case Against Impeachment

Yeah, I know. I’m a “traitor to the cause.” I’ve been called that before and I know I’ll be called that again. The problem is, the people who usually call me that are generally not worth my time. First of all, I do worry about Trump. I worry because he’s …

Trump Didn’t Win. We Lost. AGAIN!

This was the worst election season in the history of the United States. I mean THE WORST.  Well, except for 2010 and 2014, that is. I don’t say that because Donald Trump won the presidency, because he didn’t. We lost. Again. Once again, turnout that had been way up in …

Just Vote Democrat!

This is the day. Everything that’s happened over the past 20 months or more has led to this. All I can say is, VOTE DEMOCRATIC PARTY I don’t just mean, vote Hillary over the BOT (Big Orange Toddler), which should be obvious. I’m talking everywhere up and down the line. …

Why White Progressives Lose: a Cautionary Tale

This is a comment that I received from a well-meaning but obviously young and not-very bright “liberal arts” student from the University of Minnesota named Mark Mahoney. It was in response to my piece entitled “Cutting the Crap on Reasons to Not Vote Hillary.” Now, I have only two rules …

More Proof That the Parties are NOT the Same

Every time someone tells me there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans, I want to retch. It’s not even just bullshit. The concept is completely ludicrous in 2016. Look at the Klown Kar candidates they’ve put up for the last few presidential elections. I know you think Donald Trump is some …

The Two Parties on Jobs

Let’s revisit this notion that the United States is somehow a jobless hellscape and that everyone in this country is either unemployed or being paid too little to pay their bills. Most of us have seen film from the 1930s. The Great Depression ruined many people’s lives. People wore clothes …

Cutting the Crap On Various GOP Ad Lies

The one thing that has bothering me most about this election season is the complete dearth of truth coming out. Journalists have apparently decided that their job is creating click bait and they leave the fact checking to “fact check columns.” I really hate to break it to them, but for …
