The Toddler-in-Chief Makes Us Less Safe

On Friday, which, quite ironically, just happened to be Holocaust Remembrance Day, Lord Donny decided that was the perfect time to go against everything the country he now represents around the world stands for.  He chose that day to sign an order that suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days

Donny’s First Order: Take Away Health Insurance

The first thing Donny Trump did as president was to sign an “executive order” to make repealing “Obamacare”. For those in the Trump wing of the dufus demographic, there is actually no such thing as “Obamacare.” It’s a nickname for the Affordable Care Act, which actually improved everyone’s insurance. The

The Real (Snow)Flakes

I dunno about you, but I’m tired of being called a “delicate snowflake.” It was perhaps amusing at first, but now it’s just ironic. I mean, the people referring to liberals as “delicate snowflakes” have as a hero someone who cannot take even the smallest slight without lashing out at

Look at the Big Picture

I’ll get into this to a greater degree in a separate post, but we are not really as “polarized” as the media likes to claim. What we actually have is two really loud extremes; the right wing has both a short-term and a long-term goal of “winning,” while the far

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

Republicans and Democrats Have Nothing in Common, Part One

You know, one of the most absurd things I hear and read on practically a daily basis is the outlandish idea that the two major political parties are somehow similar. And yet, the entire professional left seems to demand that we believe that both parties are largely two sides of

More Proof That the Parties are NOT the Same

Every time someone tells me there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans, I want to retch. It’s not even just bullshit. The concept is completely ludicrous in 2016. Look at the Klown Kar candidates they’ve put up for the last few presidential elections. I know you think Donald Trump is some

The Two Parties on Jobs

Let’s revisit this notion that the United States is somehow a jobless hellscape and that everyone in this country is either unemployed or being paid too little to pay their bills. Most of us have seen film from the 1930s. The Great Depression ruined many people’s lives. People wore clothes

This Could Be the Year We Start to End Bullying

Given that a bully like Donald Trump is running for president, there just isn’t enough talk about bullying as a serious problem in this country. There does seem to be a lot of concern, but not enough. Let’s face it; the entire Republican platform has consisted largely of bullying for

Counting the Ways: The GOP Is Bad on Economy

Let’s make this easy. A lot of bad things have happened over the past 40 years and every single one of them is traceable to the Republican Party. That’s not hyperbole, really. I know, a lot of you believe that Democrats have done some horrible things, especially that Bill Clinton,

The GOP “Small Government” Punchline

It’s hard to Have a discussion with a Republican without them mentioning their fetiish for what they refer to as “small government.” Of course, we all know that’s a joke; their definition of “small government” Is pretty absurd. On the one hand, their model is supposedly a government “small enough

Data Show Why NO ONE Should Ever Vote GOP

I know many of you think you look smarter when you do so, but the fact of the matter is,  individual politicians can’t do much of anything in a democratic system, so focusing on individual voting records is kind of dumb. Since 1981, Democrats have only had control of the

The GOP “Doubled the Debt,” Not Obama

I say this a lot, but this is an important concept that absolutely must be said and repeated ad nauseam until the average person gets it. The reason the debt has gone up under Obama is NOT because the government is spending too much money. Now, let me explain. This is

Jesus Loved the Poor; He’d Never Vote Trump or the GOP

Can you claim to be a Christian and also plan to vote for Donald Trump? Sure. It’s a free country; if you want to call yourself a dog and bark to communicate, you can do that if you wish. It all depends on how accurate you perceive yourself as being.

GOP Right Boobs of the Week – Good Luck Getting Distaste Out of Your Mind

Ya know, we all spend a lot of time talking about Donald Trump, who is a truly disgusting human being and the ultimate Republican, but the issue is the Republican Party ideology, such as it is. That is the thought behind our relatively new “Trump Republican of the Day” feature. However,

Trump Republican of the Day: Former Cop Steals Yard Signs

You can’t make this shit up. In Tennessee, a Republican state lawmaker, Rep. Curry Todd of Collierville, has been charged with stealing an opponent’s yard signs a month before the primary election that was held back on August 4. He lost his primary, anyway and, instead of running as an

Swiftboating Hillary.

Everyone who is trashing the shit out of Hillary Clinton because of the Clinton Foundation should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously ashamed. However, the progressives who are implying that the Clinton Foundation is little more than a honey pot for the Clintons are demonstrating way too much ignorance. This is

Trump Republican of the Day: Governor Scott Walker

I see Scott Walker Tweeting all sorts of negative anti-Hillary BS for public consumption, but it seems that many of Walker’s public appearances are, well, a lot less than “public.” Last month, Rep. Dana Wachs, who is considering a run for governor in 2018, Tweeted the following: Walker holding listening sessions:
