Stop With the False Equivalence

Where the hell does this bullshit come from? When people discuss politics, it seems to be almost an obsessive compulsion to try to equivocate among all of the candidates. Just stop it. The following are all facts: Hillary Clinton has been accused of many, many things. She has undergone numerous …

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 …

Data Show Why NO ONE Should Ever Vote GOP

I know many of you think you look smarter when you do so, but the fact of the matter is,  individual politicians can’t do much of anything in a democratic system, so focusing on individual voting records is kind of dumb. Since 1981, Democrats have only had control of the …

WTF are You Protesting?

The number of “progressives” and “liberals” who are plannng to vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson seems to be dwindling, thank goodness. However, the number should be zero. No liberal in their right mind should even think about voting for Gary Johnson, who is a right winger who happens …

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, …

End the Freakout Cycle

You know what’s going to happen tonight. We all do, if we really think about it and think about it hard. There will be a debate tonight. Hillary Clinton will show up and offer a huge helping of competence and she will demonstrate that she knows what she’s doing. She …

Unicorn Progressives and “Principle.”

I know many “political junkies” are too busy panicking to think about it, but do you have any idea why so many mainstream Republicans are putting aside their hatred of Donald Trump to vote for him anyway? Do you know why they will hold their nose and vote Republican, no …

Utopian Blues

Let’s talk about the dumbest “political” question I have ever been asked in my life. I was asked this on Twitter yesterday. I made the observation that every progressive in the country must be absolutely four-square pro-Hillary by now because the fate of the country is at stake. And their …

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 …

Bubble Progressives

I’m apparently supposed to be scared to death right now.  Apparently, I am supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is in serious trouble in her presidential run, and that I should be afraid because half the population plans to vote for Donald Trump. Okay, that’s not the only reason I …

Hearts and Minds

I spend far too much of my time talking to “progressives” who speak as if they’re political experts, even though they seem to have no clue as to how politics works. They blame Democratic committees for Democrats’ losses in recent years, as if the DNC and the DCCC do more …

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. …

Cynicism is Detrimental to the Progressive Cause

I am getting so tired of people who proclaim themselves as “real progressives” who demonstrate nothing but cynicism at every turn. If you think Democrats are as bad as Republicans, or look at everyone on both sides with equal degrees of scorn, you may call yourself “a progressive,” since it’s …

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 …

Repost: The Myth of Third Party “Viability”

I posted this a while back, but with all of the talk of voting “Third Party” lately because some are having hissy fits about Hillary, it’s worth re-reading. Jill Stein and Gary Johnson will not win; only Clinton or Trump will. And no, it is not a “lesser of two …

Objective vs. “Fair and Balanced”: How the Press Fails Us

There is a crisis in our journalism, and it’s something that has to be taken care of right now. I don’t know what is being taught in journalism classes these days, but given that I spent the better part of a year working in the heart of a big city …

Commander-in-Chief Forum: Another Press Failure

There is no way that Donald Trump should have even a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the presidency. It shouldn’t even be close. Hillary Clinton is as qualified as any candidate in history and she is running against the most unqualified candidate in history. Clinton, whether or not you …

There is Nothing Dishonest About Hillary

There are two things that drive the news media. One is ratings or clicks. The other is making you feel uneasy enough to go to them and either watch, listen or click. In other words, what many refer to as the “mainstream media” (although there really is no such thing) …

Select Your Media Like Underwear

I get it, I really do. Like many of you, I grew up at a time when we were lucky to have access to a few newspapers, a couple of half-hour news programs each evening and maybe, if we lived in a really big metro area, an all-news radio station. …
