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,

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

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

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

GOP Right Boobs of the Week – Good Luck Getting Distaste Out of Your Mind

Ya know, we all spend a lot of time talking about Donald Trump, who is a truly disgusting human being and the ultimate Republican, but the issue is the Republican Party ideology, such as it is. That is the thought behind our relatively new “Trump Republican of the Day” feature. However,
