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. …

Both Parties are the Same Only if You’re Insane

Why aren’t more people, especially liberals, tired of the notion that both political parties are “the same” in any way? This is getting serious because the idea that both parties have any similarities at all is absolutely laughable. There are no similarities at all. None. Zip. Nada. And if you …

As Jason Chaffetz heads out the door of Congress for the last time at the end of this week, he is, as usual, complaining about something. Chaffetz decided to give an inteview to the Hill, where he whined about howput upon he is at “only” making $174,000 per year because, …

The Abject Stupidity of Trumpcare

It really is this simple… The Republican Party is not capable of running the government properly. If you doubt that, look at their healthcare replacement. There is no way in which is isn’t a travesty,. And yet, they just lie about it. The latest example is HHS Secretary Tom Price …

Stick Your Griffin Fake Outrage Up Your…

I know I discussed this issue from one angle yesterday,, in which I didn’t talk about Trump at all. But there’s another angle to this that has everything to do with Trump. If you expect people to be outraged by Kathy Griffin’s severed head photo shoot – easily the most …

Forget Barron; What About Malia and Sasha?

Look, I get it… When Kathy Griffin posted an image of herself holding up a severed head that looked a lot like Donald Trump, it was wrong on many levels. For one thing, it was in bad taste; not surprising from Kathy Griffin. For another thing, we can’t let violent …

Climate Change

Pulling Out of the Paris Accords is Stupid. Here’s Why.

The more I examine the Trump approach to climate change, which is to deny its existence and then pull out of a treaty in which President Obama and his people worked for years to get 190 countries to agree on, the more it looks like Lord Donny is doing two …

The Importance of Truth and Facts

I”We the people” are actually in charge of this country. I just thought it was time someone pointed it out because many of us seem to have forgotten. We allowed an asshole and all of his asshole friends to be elected president through our benign neglect of the democratic process. …

Dear Republicans…

What is wrong with you? I mean, what is wrong with the people who make up today’s Republican Party? And yes, Republicans, that question is meant for you. I’ll preface this letter by saying, I know a lot of Republicans and very few of them are dicks. However, when you …

Republican Pre-Existing Condition: Stupidity

It’s time someone said it. There IS NO SUCH THING AS “OBAMACARE.” Someone had to say it because it seems that no one in the media or politics wants to. The Republicans in the House will vote today to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” It will barely pass, if it does, …

It’s OUR Money, Not THEIRS

One of the most absurd ways in which this country has been Republicanized comes with the concept that  the government benefits that some citizens receive are always “someone else’s money.” Republicans, especially Trump and the ironically named “Freedom Caucus,” believe that businesses that get millions or more in tax money …

The Worst First 100 EVER

The first problem with writing up an assessment of the first 100 days of the Trump fiasco comes with trying to decide where to start. Many pundits have characterized the goings-on in the Lord Donny regime as something resembling an out-of-control tennis ball machine, since so much is coming at …

We Already Have a “People’s Party”

We are in crisis right now, which means we, as progressives, should be in crisis mode. That means we have to do whatever works to get us out of this crisis. The biggest problem this country has, really, is an apathy problem. Too many people think voting is an option …

We Have to be Anti-Republican, and Donny is a Republican

I love making fun of the current occupant of the White House. I even make fun of him directly on Twitter, it’s so much fun. However, even as we make fun of his sorry ass, as the least-qualified person to ever hold office and someone who probably got where he …

“Pro-Trump?” Based on What?

There have been some heated protests today, especially in Berkeley, where anti-Trump protesters have used this date – which is the usual deadline for filing income taxes – to perhaps encourage Lord Donny to release his tax returns. This would be useful because, right now, we have no actual idea …

“Pro-Life,” My Ass

So, Lord Donny is a coward… Who didn’t know this? I mean, the same asshole who shows off every Executive Order like a toddler who did his first doody in the potty actually signed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in private. He did it secretly, where no one could …

How Republicans Transformed Us Into a Can’t-Do Nation

You know what? Everything in the above video had a different answer a generation ago. If this was 1954, or even 1964 and Russia or the Soviet Union had declared climate change to be real and man-made real and they planned to fill their country with solar panels and wind …

Where I Have Been, Where We’re Going

For those of you who have been wondering why I have been absent for much of this Trump-related pageant, there has been a lot going on. First of all, I was dissatisfied with how this blog was going. The world has changed and it has become extremely necessary to change …

The GOP and the Un-Affordable Care Act

For those of you who don’t remember, the Affordable Care act was passed about seven years ago. In that seven years, Republicans have promised to repeal it every election. Since they took over Congress, the House has voted to repeal it more than 70 times. When they took their seats …

The Warriors for Free Speech

Funny. I have been a “warrior for free speech” all my life. I have worked continuously to make sure everyone’s speech is properly protected from government and private interference, to the extent possible. For example, I would never deny that Lord Donny has the right to Tweet about anything he …
