You Haz Feelz? Too Bad.

This will be the last post on this blog about Bernie Stans. I mean the last one. No more. In fact, it’s really not about them; I just plan to use them as an object lesson. Last night, after Bill Clinton … Continue reading

In Praise of Progressive Diversity

I know I will probably sound like someone crazy when I say this, but to me, the best part of being progressive is our diversity. When I say that, I’m not actually talking about having friends and acquaintances of different … Continue reading

The Progressive Solution

Okay… So for the last week, I have been ranting about the PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) and professional left, and their rank stupidity with regard to politics. They don’t understand how politics actually works, they don’t understand that you don’t … Continue reading

PUBs and the Progressive Message

Before I begin this part of the rant, I want to assure people that this blog is not 100% dedicated to calling out the Progressive Unicorn Brigade (PUBs), or whatever you want to call them; puritopians, emo progs, or whatever, … Continue reading

The Unlikable Left

This rant is long overdue. Sorry in advance, but it’s time someone said it… I’m tired of ideological purists on the far left side of the aisle telling me and many other actual liberals that we’re not really “progressive” because … Continue reading

Collusion Among Friends?

A few days ago, a hacker that goes by the silly name “Guccifer” (and Guccifer2) released a bunch of documents it supposedly hacked from the DNC. Now, a lot of people made a big deal out of whether or not … Continue reading

Sending Messages and Holding “Them” Accountable

I’ve been around a long time. I’m not old, yet, but I’ve been around a while. No matter how long I’m around, however, I will never understand why PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade, sometimes called “emo progs,” but I’m not a … Continue reading
