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 …

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 …

To the Death of the Confederacy

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 …

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 …

If Trump Wants Respect… well…

I am continually amazed by the intestinal fortitude of the Trump lovers who demand that I and others who criticize Lord Donny acknowledge that he is president and show him the respect he deserves. The thing is, I do exactly that. I’ve told this story before, so bear with me. …

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 …

The Facts About Gun Violence

The NRA has been sending the following ad far and wide to get the gunloons excited about guns and overall gun looniness. It actually conceptualizes the average American good ole boy standing up to ISIS and blowing them all away with their freely purchased guns. It’s pure fantasy, and with …

Nothing About the GOP is “Conservative”

One thing I’ve advocated for many years is that people stop using the word “conservative” to describe the right wing whack jobs who have taken over the Republican Party. I’ve had no luck, of course. I’m just me. But you’ll note that, in more than 1,000 posts on this blog, …

The GOP Has a Single Strategy. Stop Helping.

I’ve been saying this for years, and sometimes I feel like I’m banging my head against a cement wall. The number one strategy Republicans have in any election is to piss people off so they don’t vote. The last few midterm elections have been disasters largely because of NON-voters. the …

PCTC GOP Crazies of the Week

Compiled by @Sueinrockville and Milt Shook Election Round-up Ted Cruz definitely had a “busy” week. From his partnership with John Kasich which evaporated  faster than an ice cube on a Cleveland sidewalk in July, the week began with a National Enquirer story alleging that his grifter dad as a companion of …

What Are You Afraid Of?

The title of this post says it all. Politics is about getting the most votes, which means making the most people feel positive about taking your position or backing your candidate. That takes guts and confidence, and more progressives have to not only have it, but demonstrate it.  You see, …

Flashback: How to be a Republican, But Not a RINO!

This is what you have to believe if you’re to be called a “real Republican.” Of course, the next logical question would be, why would anyone want to believe any of this crap? And right wingers who happen upon this list; come on, you know I’m right. You have to …

How Republican Thinking Costs Us – Repeatedly.

Ya know, I’m sick of hearing about how Democrats who are supposedly “tax & spend liberals” and it’s the Republican Party who will save the country from everything. There is literally nothing Republicans have done in recent years that hasn’t cost us, as American taxpayers, billions and even trillions of …

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 …

It’s Time We Called the GOP What It Is; Our Enemy

Tonight is another Republican klown show, er, “debate,” and there is little doubt that it will be long on chaos and short of proposals that may help the American people. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, of course; things have been this way for a while. If we want to change this …

A Call for Congressional Candidates to Take a Test on the Constitution

Here’s the thing: Before they are allowed to take a seat in the United States House of Representatives or the United States Senate, every single member is required to take the following oath: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all …

There is Nothing More Progressive than Ousting the GOP

The first thing every progressive should know is, most voters are already preternaturally inclined to vote for the Democratic Party. We’ve known this since the 1930s. Since 1932, registered Democrats have outnumbered registered Republicans by a significant margin, even when there was a trend in which more and more voters …

What Ahmed Tells Us About GOP Ideology

Cutting the Crap on the GOP Clown Show – CNN Edition

It’s really time to get back to the roots of this blog, because the crap in today’s discourse is so thick, it’s hard to imagine cutting it with a chain saw. It’s not just coming from the “candidates,” either; the media itself is complicit in perpetuating complete crap every chance …

Exceptionalism, My Ass!

I’m so tired of abject morons always droning on about “American Exceptionalism,” I actually want to barf every time I hear it. Do you know what we’re exceptional at? We are amazing at talking about our incredible greatness at a time when we do pretty much nothing great as a …
