Help Us Build Something Amazing; a Liberal Network That Doesn’t Self-Destruct

I usually do this earlier in the summer, but better late than never. The short version is, we cannot do anything without your support. We are creating a network of like-minded liberal voices to counteract the constant negativity coming from the professional left, but we can’t do it on our

White Privilege on the Left

Common Dreams posted this yesterday and also put it in their Facebook page: A Thought for Sanders: Maybe He Should Join the Democratic Party? It’s a thoughtful article. While I don’t agree with everything in it, the basic idea is a good one. The caption on the Facebook post was,

Why Republicans Can’t Govern

Imagine, if you will, that a major political party had adopted an ideological construct that was built on the following concepts; Government can’t do anything right; Every dime the federal government spends is essentially wasted; It is impossible for government to create jobs; It is impossible for government to create

A Dose of Reality

What is our fascination with pointless publicity stunts that can’t work? Just this morning, a relatively prominent liberal Tweeted that “the Democrats” should “collectively” propose an alternative to the Republican ACA fixes. It was suggested that “the Democats” include a “public option” (another “progressive” noted that “Medicare for all” had

Take Your “Neoliberalism” and Shove It…

You know the difference between a “neoliberal” and every other liberal out there? The people who use the term are doing so because they believe it makes them look smarter and more politically astute to… well… others who think the same way they do? And that is the key problem

The Problem Isn’t Trump, but the Entire GOP

You know, in the last few days, I have caught myself calling the Republican healthcare bills, “Trumpcare.” I have done this numerous times. I apologize. See, here’s the thing. It should be called “GOPCare.” This is a Republican idea that Lord Donny hasn’t even read. He only feels like he

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

Fighting BS From the Far Left

Just in the last few days, I have been told that many actual liberals who are fighting the good fight and trying to get Democrats elected are “shills” who are trying to hurt Bernie Sanders’ chances in 2020, I have been told that many on the left agree with the

To the Death of the Confederacy

The first thing I need to say before I start is that I am well aware that the target of this diatribe is a small percentage of the population. The fact that they are loud and obnoxious doesn’t negate the fact that the vast majority of Americans will like this

Why Americans Don’t Like Progressives: Case Study

Sometimes, the professional left says something true that is still self-defeating. Like the following: Look at David Corn’s reaction to a Lord Donny Tweet crowing about a stock market rally that has been ongoing for about 7 years. Then, I’ll explain why it’s really bad… Only 52 percent of Americans

Jobs and Income: Democrats vs. Republicans

Every election season, unicorn progressives and the professional left try to entice me to vote for an independent or third party. Hell; over the weekend, one of them was already pushing Someone like that for 2020. As if we don’t have 2018 to worry about. This points to two of

To Be Better at Politics, Know What it Is

One of the biggest problems with the progressive movement is that a great many voters don’t like us very much. Now, for some of the unicorn types and the professional left, who see “popularity” as a synonym for “selling out,” being unliked is seen as a badge of honor. However,

Repost: Cutting the Crap on Campaign Finances: “Wall Street” Doesn’t Support Dems. At All.

I’m reposting this because I feel that I need to. Also, WordPress is being buggy and won’t allow me to re-copy the tables below intact. But this is for everyone who’s told that Democrats are just as “beholden” to “corporations” and “Wall Street” as Republicans. It’s not even CLOSE, really.

Both Parties are the Same Only if You’re Insane

Why aren’t more people, especially liberals, tired of the notion that both political parties are “the same” in any way? This is getting serious because the idea that both parties have any similarities at all is absolutely laughable. There are no similarities at all. None. Zip. Nada. And if you

What the Unicorn and Pro Left Get Wrong

First off, I don’t know if Albert Einstein said this, but he is  often credited with defining insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” It’s very true, so who really cares who originated it? And the loudest voices in the progressive movement proves this

The Abject Stupidity of Trumpcare

It really is this simple… The Republican Party is not capable of running the government properly. If you doubt that, look at their healthcare replacement. There is no way in which is isn’t a travesty,. And yet, they just lie about it. The latest example is HHS Secretary Tom Price

How the Unicorn Left Helps the GOP

Over the past few weeks, I have been bombarded by messages from far lefties who think they are the smartest people in the world about politics. Now, many of these “progressives” have 100-200 purchased followers and many have been Tweeting for less than a week, or just took up Tweeting
