Trump and the London Terror Response

First of all, my heart goes out to the people of London this morning, after a series of attacks by assholes who claim affinity with extremists last night.  As of this morning, seven were killed and about 50 or so were injured. It’s a tragedy, to be sure. British PM …

Trump’s Candidacy Means GOP Death Knell, But…

I don’t think many people understand just how screwed the Republican Party is with Donald Trump in the race. His mouth means there is absolutely no way he can ever be elected, and there’s little chance he’ll ever get the nomination. However, the GOP leadership find themselves between a rock …

Republicans just don’t get this concept of rights…

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free … it expects what never was and never will be.” — Thomas Jefferson One of the most bothersome things about the Republican Party these days has to be their sheer hypocrisy when it comes to the concept of liberty. Many claim to be …

With Ebola, GOP scares people into staying home. Press helps.

There is no greater example of the national press absolutely dropping the ball on coverage of a story than the current Ebola panic of 2014. Keep in mind, the number one strategy of the Republican Party is to drive down turnout. And the most efficient way to drive down turnout …

29 to go: In praise of elites

When it comes to the next election, we have to encourage voters to raise standards, rather than lower them. that means, voting out the supremely incompetent Republican Party, and voting in Democrats, who at least seemed competent and willing to listen to reason. Last week, as I listened to Caribou Barbie drone …

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 …

When Did America Become so Mean?

When did Americans become so mean? No, really; when children appear at our borders, and many of our politicians treat them like a swarm of locusts, it’s time to ask that question. Is that how we want to be known? Since October 2012, approximately 52,000 children have arrived at our borders without …

Why Arizona SB 1070 Is Bad Law, No Matter What You Think

You have to hand it to right wing Republicans. They certainly know how to adopt an issue and get behind a law based on that issue that they know a) will probably be overturned by a court because it's unconstitutional and b) if it's not overturned won't actually fix the …

The Caribou Barbie is an Idiot Chronicles: The Oil Spill

This blog has been remiss, and I apologize. You see, I often dismiss Caribou Barbie (Sarah Palin) as a crank and an idiot, which is just too easy at times. I sometimes forget that a significant portion of the population actually believes what they think she said (most of it …

Limbaugh Finally Admits It: Civil Rights No Big Deal to the Far Right…

You know, sometimes you see something that just makes your jaw come apart and fall to the ground. I had always suspected that the right wing didn't care about an individuals; not really, anyway. Oh, sure, they don't want anyone to mess with their guns. Of course, they don't want …

Those Wacky Wingnuts

Facebook libertarian claptrap

So, I saw this in a wall post of a friend of mine on Facebook… I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the successful passing of the recent health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is …

Prepare to Laugh! Impeach Obama?

I have a friend with two dogs. Okay, he’ll tell you he has one dog and his wife has the other, but she’s been working so much lately, he’s the one who walks them.  He walks them both at the same time, and it’s really funny to watch at times, …

UPDATED!! Finally, ACORN Takes on the Fox News and the Right Wing Fart Machine

I really don't understand why they waited so long. I've been rooting for them to fight back for well over a year.  But finally, The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, better known as ACORN (I'm sure you've heard of them by now), has started to fight back against …

How to Argue With a Right Winger

Okay, in the interest of the relative sanity of the populous, I should probably start by advising you to never argue with a right winger in a one-on-one, face-to-face situation.  It's better to preserve the brain cells, and just shake your head and walk away muttering.  (But make sure you …

Me vs. Coulter: Wherein I Kick Her Ass, Part II

Little Annie Coulter promised us that she'd come up with more "lies" we liberals always tell, and she hasn't disappoint. In fact, she's promised eight more sets after this one. That's going to take some imagination…   Thankfully for everyone involved, Annie is such a practiced liar, it should be …

Me vs. Coulter — Kicking the Ultimate RW Liar’s ASS on Health Insurance

I got this in my email yesterday, and had to laugh my ass off. You'll see why when you look at the title.   I'm not even going to lead into this one; I'll just say it's typical Coulter; red meat and pure BS for the droolers who will believe …

The Opposition to Health Reform is F-ing CRAZY!

These people — the ones who are against health insurance reform — are  f-ing CRAZY! How crazy, do you ask? I'm sure you heard about the loon woman, who screamed "Heil Hitler" at a Jewish man who was being interviewed by a local Las Vegas TV station. But have you …

Cutting More “Objectively Standard” Lies About the Health Care Bill

(Note: The original "Deconstruction" is still here…) Apparently, they haven't figured out we're onto them.   What follows is from an e-mail sent by a reader. The original comes from a blog entitled "The Objective Standard." It's an Ayn Randian type blog that simply has a problem with the government …
