Looking For Something to Read? Two Books Now Available for Pre-Sale, Cheap!

I have TWO new e-books coming out on March 1 and, because I can use the money and the progressive movement could use more guidance, I am making them available for pre-order starting today. Both will sell for $9.99 when they are officially released, but you can pre-order each for

No Democrat is Anything Like a Republican.

The cluelessness of the unicorn left has been in full flower over the past week, at least in my Twitter feed. Over the past few days, a few of them have decided to take me to task for my support of Doug Jones, who pulled off the largest upset in

No, Democrats did not “Cave.”

This idea that the Democrats “caved” on the truly shitty deal to reopen the government is such a stupid one, it’s hard to put into words. It shows an anti-Democratic bias that is completely out of place right now, especially among the left. Perhaps there was a time when it

The Issue is STILL Universal Healthcare

I seem to have set off a firestorm on Twitter today because I said something that is undeniably true, but I added a word I should not have. I’ll explain that later on. For now, allow me to explain why being “single-payer or bust” is narrow-minded and unrealistic. This is

Fixing the Problem With the Press

For some reason, I found myself awake earlier than usual this morning. Perhaps I was eager to begin the new year or something; who knows. Whatever the reason, I started perusing my Twitter feed. There, I once again came across the biggest problem with journalism today. It started with a

What Do We Want to Be? Part II – Fiscal Responsibility

What Do We Want to Be? Part I

As a lifelong progressive who really, truly wants to live in the greatest country in the world, I find both the progressive movement and the country at a crossroads. There are two fundamental questions that we as a movement must ask and answer if we are to finally be successful.

Even Republicans Are Getting Tired of This…

There is a tendency on the part of most “political junkies” to lump everyone in a political party or a political subgroup together, as if all tens of millions of people who register that way are largely the same. We suggest they are all of singular mind, as if they

When They Go Low…

Among many on the left, a theme has once again reared its ugly head over the last few days, and it’s a potentially destructive one. You see, they think Al Franken has been victimized by the general “wimpiness” of the Democratic Party.  They claim Democrats don’t “fight,” which means Democrats don’t hit back
