Civil Discourse Includes Calling Out Lies

I know this will confuse some folks out there, but if you were to meet me, I’m genuinely one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I’m not mean and nasty to people who deserve to have someone put a foot up their ass. If any of you knew what

Have 47 Republican Senators Committed a Crime? Yep.

How do I put this… I have repeatedly proven that the Republican Party is a bunch of incompetent boobs, who don’t really care about you. I’ve implied many times that they are somewhat un-American in their approach, although when it comes to calling someone “un-American” I tend to hold back

Saint Reagan Really Wasn’t Even a Good President

There is recently yet another round of right-wing lionization of Saint Ronald of Reagan going on as we speak. (No, I will not tell you where it’s happening. It’s not worth the pain and suffering.) It’s puzzling, really. Not only do they lie about the few decent things he did

The “Free Market” Fantasy

Since Saint Regan was elected in 1980, an incredible fiction has been perpetrated on the public that needs to be addressed. That fiction comes with the simplistic notion that there is such a thing as a “free market.” They actually hold this belief closer than they hold their expressed belief

Here’s the best way to engage right wingers…

…don’t. Yes, that’s right. Do you know why right wingers on the Internet say such stupid things? Well, to be honest, in most cases it’s because they are stupid. But it’s also because they have to. They’re charged with saying stupid shit by their “handlers,” who are the smart Republicans who corral

8 days to go: The number one reason no one should vote Republican this year…

There is really only one fact that voters need to know when it comes to deciding how important it is to vote, and vote for Democrats: In October 2013, 144 House Republicans voted to default on the national debt. The number one reason we even have to deal with teabaggers

Word of the Day: Bipartisanship

This blog is a little different from most liberal/progressive blogs, in that it’s not about complaining about things. It’s far better to change things. If there is something about this country we don’t like, we owe everyone a duty to change it. As I note quite often, the root of the word

Republicans Are Not Big Fans of Capitalism

Let’s get real here. As I have pointed out repeatedly on this blog, the current incarnation of the Republican Party is in no way a fan of capitalism. Oh, they like making money for themselves and their “investors.” (That’s George W. Bush’s word, by the way, not mine.) However, when it

Sean Hannity Demonstrates Why The Right Needs to GO!

You know what’s wrong with America these days? How about 34 years of inordinate influence by right wing thoughts and beliefs, especially since they took over the Republican Party. Right wingers simply do not represent real American values. The most obvious areas where this is the case are in the
