We Can Still Kill the GOP Tax Scam: Here’s What’s In It

The first thing you have to keep in mind is, the GOP Tax Scam is still alive and is not law. It has not passed as yet. Not that you would understand that based on the pall that has come over the professional left. The level of defeatism is especially

What’s the Point of This Deficit Exploding Tax Bill?

The Republican tax plan is a joke. If you think you’re going to get a huge tax cut, you’re dumber than a Trump voter. Even when you look at the consolidation of tax brackets from seven to four, the only people to see a major decrease in taxes are married

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

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,
