The Importance of Truth and Facts

I”We the people” are actually in charge of this country. I just thought it was time someone pointed it out because many of us seem to have forgotten. We allowed an asshole and all of his asshole friends to be elected president through our benign neglect of the democratic process.

Being a “Political Junkie” is a Luxury

For nearly 250 years now, we have lived in one of the most stable democracies in world history. We are still that, but there are signs that such stability may be in trouble. And the reason for that is actually our fault, as Americans. I mean, it is tempting to

The Idiocy of the Bernie Left

Sometimes, I just see something coming from our side that makes me want to scream. There is a strain of so-called “progressives” who haven’t the political sense of a Trump voter. And right now, they are being led by Bernie Sanders, who is one of the least effective members of

When Talk is Cheap, Shut Up

Stop Being Negative

Okay, I have to make this quick, but it’s something that has to be said. I am a progressive… What i mean by that is, I am a full-on Pinko, radical liberal who wants everyone in society to have the opportunity to do well. I want everyone in this country

There is no Smorgasbord

This Saturday, there is an election. While most of us who actually work with Democratic candidates every election year know, this election is a yawner because it’s the election for DNC Chair.

And Some Blame Goes to…
