Dear Republicans…

What is wrong with you? I mean, what is wrong with the people who make up today’s Republican Party? And yes, Republicans, that question is meant for you. I’ll preface this letter by saying, I know a lot of Republicans and very few of them are dicks. However, when you …

Republican Pre-Existing Condition: Stupidity

It’s time someone said it. There IS NO SUCH THING AS “OBAMACARE.” Someone had to say it because it seems that no one in the media or politics wants to. The Republicans in the House will vote today to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” It will barely pass, if it does, …

It’s OUR Money, Not THEIRS

One of the most absurd ways in which this country has been Republicanized comes with the concept that  the government benefits that some citizens receive are always “someone else’s money.” Republicans, especially Trump and the ironically named “Freedom Caucus,” believe that businesses that get millions or more in tax money …

Being a “Political Junkie” is a Luxury

For nearly 250 years now, we have lived in one of the most stable democracies in world history. We are still that, but there are signs that such stability may be in trouble. And the reason for that is actually our fault, as Americans. I mean, it is tempting to …

The Worst First 100 EVER

The first problem with writing up an assessment of the first 100 days of the Trump fiasco comes with trying to decide where to start. Many pundits have characterized the goings-on in the Lord Donny regime as something resembling an out-of-control tennis ball machine, since so much is coming at …

100 Days of Pure Corruption

Okay, so, as of tomorrow, Lord Donny will have contaminated the White House with his stench for 100 days now. I’m going to split this up into two pieces because the first part of this is something important that not enough are talking about. Tomorrow, the actual 100th day, I’ll …

When Lord Donny Lies…

Saturday is Lord Donny’s 100th day on the job and apparently, no one on his staff or in his “brain trust” has bothered to teach him the most basic civics lesson there is. There are three branches of government and Congress basically makes the laws and spends the money. Just …

The Idiocy of the Bernie Left

Sometimes, I just see something coming from our side that makes me want to scream. There is a strain of so-called “progressives” who haven’t the political sense of a Trump voter. And right now, they are being led by Bernie Sanders, who is one of the least effective members of …

When Talk is Cheap, Shut Up

I was just listening to The Young Turks prattle on about how pissed they are over the fact that former President Barack Obama will be paid to make speeches. Imagine that! The first black president, who worked his ass off for eight years, now gets to make a little for …

Don’t Worry, Choose Sanity

I want to say something about polls. More specifically, i want to cut the crap on those who speak of an individual poll as if it reflects reality. No individual poll has ever reflected a precise perception of reality at a specific moment in time. There is a reason why …

We Already Have a “People’s Party”

We are in crisis right now, which means we, as progressives, should be in crisis mode. That means we have to do whatever works to get us out of this crisis. The biggest problem this country has, really, is an apathy problem. Too many people think voting is an option …

We Have to be Anti-Republican, and Donny is a Republican

I love making fun of the current occupant of the White House. I even make fun of him directly on Twitter, it’s so much fun. However, even as we make fun of his sorry ass, as the least-qualified person to ever hold office and someone who probably got where he …

The Only Unicorn is a Frappuccino

I hate the fact that I have to address this AGAIN, but it is so frustrating, someone has to say it. I have been active in politics – including party politics, since I was 14 and worked for McGovern’s failed campaign. In ALL of that time, I have been a …

Stop Being Negative

Okay, I have to make this quick, but it’s something that has to be said. I am a progressive… What i mean by that is, I am a full-on Pinko, radical liberal who wants everyone in society to have the opportunity to do well. I want everyone in this country …

“Pro-Trump?” Based on What?

There have been some heated protests today, especially in Berkeley, where anti-Trump protesters have used this date – which is the usual deadline for filing income taxes – to perhaps encourage Lord Donny to release his tax returns. This would be useful because, right now, we have no actual idea …

“Pro-Life,” My Ass

So, Lord Donny is a coward… Who didn’t know this? I mean, the same asshole who shows off every Executive Order like a toddler who did his first doody in the potty actually signed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in private. He did it secretly, where no one could …

How Republicans Transformed Us Into a Can’t-Do Nation

You know what? Everything in the above video had a different answer a generation ago. If this was 1954, or even 1964 and Russia or the Soviet Union had declared climate change to be real and man-made real and they planned to fill their country with solar panels and wind …

Where I Have Been, Where We’re Going

For those of you who have been wondering why I have been absent for much of this Trump-related pageant, there has been a lot going on. First of all, I was dissatisfied with how this blog was going. The world has changed and it has become extremely necessary to change …

The GOP and the Un-Affordable Care Act

For those of you who don’t remember, the Affordable Care act was passed about seven years ago. In that seven years, Republicans have promised to repeal it every election. Since they took over Congress, the House has voted to repeal it more than 70 times. When they took their seats …

There is no Smorgasbord

This Saturday, there is an election. While most of us who actually work with Democratic candidates every election year know, this election is a yawner because it’s the election for DNC Chair. See, here’s something everyone who actually understands political reality already knows, although it seems to be a secret …
