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:

What Do Modern Republicans Stand For? Heh.

We talk a lot of about Republicans and the right wing, but why? How many progressives truly understand what their ideology is about? I don’t mean reflexively being against them because you’re supposed to be. I’m talking about what the base of the Republican Party actually stands for. This is

Voter Suppression Can Only Work if…

Anyone who thinks the Republican “message” is why they keep beating us in elections is remarkably gullible. There I said it. Phew. Republicans win because of a two-pronged approach that we could counter easily, if PUBs and the professional left were just a bit smarter. Sorry guys, but this is

The Real Founders of ISIL

Donald Trump seems to be confused, but he’s not. When it comes to talking about ISIL/Daesh, Trump is doing what he’s done all along; his people are listening to and reading the professional right wing and he’s mimicking whatever they hear. This is because that is the only way he

About Cartoon Hillary…

If there is one thing that makes this election different than past elections, it is in the sheer volume of bullshit being flung about. There are times when I feel like I’m in the monkey cage at the zoo. Of course, I will get to Trump; he’s practically a steaming

Trump: Dead Man Walking? We Can’t Afford to Think So

I have been saying all along that Donald Trump is not running for president because he wants to be president. All of us thought he would have a snowball’s chance in hell because we figured the GOP and the RNC had the means to stop him. I am convinced that

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: RNC Post Mortem Edition

By @SueinRockville and Milt Shook Everyone predicted at the start of Monday’s GOP Convention a clusterfuck of epic proportions.  We knew it would be a 4 date hate-fest of lies about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama & the dangerous Democrats. However, even the most jaded political operatives, many of them Republican,

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Trump the Hump Edition

By @surinrockville and Milt Shook Another week, another column in which we are forced to ask the important question, “Where the hell do we start?” Well, as is usual these days, we start with Trump. He is, after all, the leader of the current Republican Party. This week even featured international stupidity,
