What Do We Want to Be? Part III – The Importance of Hope

It is hard to believe this is a controversial statement, but given the amount of shit I receive every time I say it, it sure seems to be. Yet, I’m going to keep saying it, because it’s absolutely true: The vast majority of voters are motivated by hope. I know,

A Dose of… Reality #1 – About Bernie and Hillary…

Some random examples of reality that too many “political junkies” seem reticent to accept: Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic Primaries fairly and squarely.  No one “cheated” and it’s ridiculous to believe that the system is “rigged” somehow. The democratic process chose Hillary Clinton as the nominee because that is what

A Political Primer for White Liberal Millennials

There is a touching connection going on between white millennial far lefties (whom I am told are the future! Yay!) and old white Hippie-type “progressives,” who are still convinced that they are political geniuses, despite the fact that their last “win” in the political arena was making the Vietnam War

STFU Bernie!

We need to be tired of this crap. Seriously… BERNIE: The Democratic brand is WORSE THAN TRUMP. Really? Worse than gutting health care & deporting DREAMERS?pic.twitter.com/teJTD6sAv7 — Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) June 23, 2017 The far left’s current chew toy, Bernie Sanders, just told CNN that the “Democratic Brand” is really

Nothing Wrong With Democrats, Bernie!

I keep being told that there is something fundamentally wrong with the Democratic Party. Apparently, their “strategy” is lacking and that is why they keep on losing to the reprobates who represent the Republican Party. I am told repeatedly that Democrats don’t “fight.” I’m told that Democrats are just as

Who’s Really a “Neoliberal”?

I am tired of the insult that so many on the far left toss out to those liberals who actually want to see progress in society, in which we are referred to as “neoliberal.” This is the actual definition according to Merriam Webster: neoliberal: noun – a liberal who de-emphasizes

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

Perspective 

It boggles the mind how many “political junkies” seem to think that obsessing over a single vote by a Democrat on something that ultimately doesn’t matter is the hill upon which they wish to sacrifice the progressive movement. It really needs to stop. First of all, you people look stupid,

Major Flashback: Pro-Choice is the Essence of Liberty

For the New Year, I decided to repost something I wrote and published for the first time on April 18, 1997. It’s depressing, in a way, that it’s even more fitting now than it was when I wrote it. Women’s rights will be under assault like never before. We all

All Politics is LOCAL. Learn That

I used to work my ass off inside the Democratic Party apparatus. I suppose, in a way, I still do, but these days, the stuff I do is for individual campaigns. I can tell you exactly when I started shifting gears; it was when I was trying to get the

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 just make demands of politicians and they do your bidding,

“Bernie or Bust?” You’re an Idiot!

Do you know why progressives always lose? Sit down and read up, folks, because this is important. I came across an article in the Huffington Post by some tool named Russ Belville. Now, I’ve never heard of  this guy before, even though his byline proudly describes him as host of

White Liberals, Stop Embarrassing Me!

Yesterday was unbelievable. It was certainly a watershed moment in the history of #BernieBro rage. (Once again, before I start, a disclaimer: I have nothing against Bernie Sanders. In fact, there is a great possibility I will vote for him in the primary and, if he wins the nomination, I

Stop Being Stupid; the Only Issue That Really Matters

Perhaps you heard… Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Obama’s rules regarding power plant emissions that is part of his efforts to rein in climate change. The ruling was a party-line (yes, I said party-line because, who are we kidding?) vote of 5-4. The stay lasts until a lower

Gunloons Gone Wild

I’ve been talking about this for years on this blog and elsewhere, and it’s finally starting to take hold. President Obama has finally done what should have been done a while ago, precisely because Congress won’t do anything at all to reduce the number of gun deaths in this country,

Telling the truth about Syrian Refugees

As probably should have been predicted by, well, everyone, the terrible attacks in Paris last Friday night brought out the xenophobic right in full force. With their idiotic cries of “American safety must come first,” they have responded with the cowardice and lack of humanity we have come to expect
