A Note of Sanity on Healthcare

Let’s make this quick. I’m writing a longer piece about this phenomenon, but we really have to stop reacting to anything and everything we see and hear from Republicans, as if everything they do is immediately tragic and will destroy the very thread of existence. It does no one any …

This is Trump.

One reason the “false equivalence” people on the Bernie left piss me off so much is because their rhetoric just doesn’t match reality. The funny thing is, they seem to adopt the same sort of “alternate reality” that only they know. If that seems familiar, it’s because it’s the same …

The GOP Has Us Serfing, USA

I have been called many things over the years, so if you think calling me a capitalist is an insult, you’re barking up the wrong tree. I am a capitalist and I will be one until someone comes up with a system that does more for people. Winston Churchill once …

Don’t Buy the Republican Lie – We Are NOT Broke!

One of the most persistent lies Republicans tell to get people to vote for them is the one in which they claim the United States is too broke to afford to do things we have to do. This is an absolute lie. As you’ll see later on, we’re not even …

Calling Out Fake Christians

While many will take this post as a diatribe against Christians, it really isn’t. It’s a plea to start calling out FAKE Christians. You know who I mean; people who wield their alleged Christianity like a blunt instrument, or those who invoke God in a political argument with the goal …

We Need Tax Reform, But Not the GOP Version

So, no that the current GOP has been skunked on their bid to take away your healthcare, they are about to turn their attention to their other pet issue; taxes. More specifically, they plan to cut them. Seriously. At a time when the so-called “president” is saber-rattling with North Korea …

The Health Insurance Follies: Fight Graham-Cassidy NOW!

There are currently two competing healthcare bills in Congress. They represent both extremes of the healthcare financing debate, which is what this is all about, after all. Both are ill-conceived, but for very different reasons. The first one is Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All single-payer bill. That is ill-conceived because the timing …

Why Churches Should Pay Taxes

Last night, Lord Donny posted the following Tweet: Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others). — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2017 As you can probably imagine, the responses from his closest followers was overwhelmingly …

Why Republicans Lie About the Debt Ceiling

As anyone who has read this blog on a regular basis knows, I am in no way a “Chicken Little” liberal. I tend to be what Stephanie Miller refers to as a. “Happy Clappy” liberal because I tend to take a bit of an optimistic outlook on most things and …

No, Pundits, This “Presidency” is Over. Period.

For all intents and purposes, the Lord Donny “presidency” is over. The only thing left to do is the formality of getting rid of him bodily. He began the week by making a policy speech on Afghanistan that was notable only because Lord Donny showed that he was able to …

The Press Conference That Should Spell Donny’s Doom

If you watched any of Trump’s press conference yesterday, you learned two things. You learned why his people don’t normally allow him to hold press conferences – he really sucks at it – and you also learned that Donald J. Trump is within a hair’s breadth of just plain quitting. …

Don’t Let Up! The Fight Goes On!

I am getting a sense that a lot of progressives and others are looking for the finish line on healthcare. They’re looking for a time when we no longer have to fight to keep health care reform. Every time the Republican assholes in Congress fail to pass a bill, a …

Proof GOP Can’t Govern; Red States Just Suck!

As I have pointed out repeatedly, the difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties has never been more stark. The Democratic ideology is about helping as many people as possible, whereas the Republican ideology is all about low taxes and not spending money on anything, except tax cuts. One of …

Why Republicans Can’t Govern

Imagine, if you will, that a major political party had adopted an ideological construct that was built on the following concepts; Government can’t do anything right; Every dime the federal government spends is essentially wasted; It is impossible for government to create jobs; It is impossible for government to create …

The Problem Isn’t Trump, but the Entire GOP

You know, in the last few days, I have caught myself calling the Republican healthcare bills, “Trumpcare.” I have done this numerous times. I apologize. See, here’s the thing. It should be called “GOPCare.” This is a Republican idea that Lord Donny hasn’t even read. He only feels like he …

The Fiscal Irresponsibility of #Trumpcare

If anyone is waiting for the Republican Party to do anything to “fix” the health insurance system, they are wasting brain cells. It’s never going to happen because it, quite literally can’t happen. You see, it is possible for Republicans to deal with economic matters, in the abstract, but they …

Cutting the Crap on Paul Ryan’s Lies on Twitter

This will be a quick one… Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Tweeted this out just now: An American company taxed at 44.6% here would only be taxed at 15% in Canada. How do we expect our businesses to compete globally? — Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 7, 2017 As you …

The first thing I need to say before I start is that I am well aware that the target of this diatribe is a small percentage of the population. The fact that they are loud and obnoxious doesn’t negate the fact that the vast majority of Americans will like this …

Jobs and Income: Democrats vs. Republicans

Every election season, unicorn progressives and the professional left try to entice me to vote for an independent or third party. Hell; over the weekend, one of them was already pushing Someone like that for 2020. As if we don’t have 2018 to worry about. This points to two of …

Repost: Cutting the Crap on Campaign Finances: “Wall Street” Doesn’t Support Dems. At All.

I’m reposting this because I feel that I need to. Also, WordPress is being buggy and won’t allow me to re-copy the tables below intact. But this is for everyone who’s told that Democrats are just as “beholden” to “corporations” and “Wall Street” as Republicans. It’s not even CLOSE, really. …
