Donny’s First Order: Take Away Health Insurance

The first thing Donny Trump did as president was to sign an “executive order” to make repealing “Obamacare”. For those in the Trump wing of the dufus demographic, there is actually no such thing as “Obamacare.” It’s a nickname for the Affordable Care Act, which actually improved everyone’s insurance. The

Give him a CHANCE? You’re Kidding, Right? 

A few days ago, someone I actually used to respect a lot actually graciously acknowledged that President Obama gave an amazing farewell speech. This person said the president showed class and dignity in the way that he is leaving the White House. However, this person’s next request left me cold.

The Real (Snow)Flakes

I dunno about you, but I’m tired of being called a “delicate snowflake.” It was perhaps amusing at first, but now it’s just ironic. I mean, the people referring to liberals as “delicate snowflakes” have as a hero someone who cannot take even the smallest slight without lashing out at

Look at the Big Picture

I’ll get into this to a greater degree in a separate post, but we are not really as “polarized” as the media likes to claim. What we actually have is two really loud extremes; the right wing has both a short-term and a long-term goal of “winning,” while the far

The Tone Deafness of the Unicorn Left

As I keep saying, there is a clear reason why liberals and progressives always come out on the short end of the stick. And we should also know and understand that reason. It’s because a small-but-really-loud strain of unicorn progressives prefer drama over reality and almost always go after Democrats for being

Major Flashback: Pro-Choice is the Essence of Liberty

For the New Year, I decided to repost something I wrote and published for the first time on April 18, 1997. It’s depressing, in a way, that it’s even more fitting now than it was when I wrote it. Women’s rights will be under assault like never before. We all

Destructive Anger

Oh, my God, people! Get a grip. I get it. The prospect of Donald Trump becoming president is scary as hell. I was hoping that the Electoral College would do the right thing, but I wasn’t expecting it. It would have been even more unprecedented than Trump, the most completely

Fight Smart

There is something about appearing to “fight” that seems to appeal to many “progressives.” It’s gotten somewhat pathetic, if I’m being honest. It’s pathetic because their impression of “fighting” is almost as bad as the right wing’s. Do you realize why so many Republicans who objected to Donald Trump “in

Avoiding Reponsibility

Many years ago, I was a very successful retail manager. My last retail management job featured me taking a small electronics store in a high-end shopping mall and turning it from a money loser to making a substantial profit within a year. I did such a great job that the

Being Liberal Means Being a Democrat…

There’s no other choice… Look, government is important to all of us. It is how we, as a society, manage to make society better and preserve our human rights. Strong government has been demonstrated to make us better as a people; it is how we all get together and do

A Message for Hardcore Bernie Stans

There is a strain of liberals and progressives out there who are now demanding that “the Democrats” change because they “keep losing” and because they believe the sure way to stop losing is to do what this strain of progressives thinks should happen. Well, I have one thing to say

If the Election Goes to the House, They’ll Choose… Trump. Here’s Why

A lot of people have taken me to task for my belief that, given the opportunity to choose a president, I’m pretty sure the Republican-run House will choose… Donald Trump. I’ve had a lot of “political junkies” assure me that the House Republicans are aching for an opportunity to get

When Unicorn Progs Lose Common Sense

Seriously, is this some sort of lefty psychosis? I was sent the following video this morning, with a plea to electors to do their job and not allow Donald Trump to become president. Essentially, these highly intelligent progressive celebrities made a great plea to electors to explain their job and

The Free Press Needs to Be Responsible

You know, it’s a funny thing about Americans… We are all aware that we have rights under the Constitution and many of us are hypersensitive about those whom we envision as usurping those rights. Unfortunately, a great many of us don’t understand how rights work. The Constitution only protects us from

Wasting Time by Manufacturing Outrage

It is a unique talent that unicorn progressives and the professional left have; to manufacture outrage. They’re very prolific. And I must admit, such a thing does draw clicks. That’s because unicorn progressives don’t seem happy unless they’re phenomenally pissed off about something. In fact, a frequent throwaway line for
