Don’t Talk to Me About Nina Turner’s Commitment to “Progressive” Policies

The Democratic Party is on life support and ‘we the people’ need to pull the plug

Ah, hello? We Don’t Need Donald Trump to Make Us a Fascist State.
“Most Americans are taught in school that fascism is a ruthless one party dictatorship, the most popular example being Nazi Germany. This is a misconception. Fascism is a political economy, not merely a political system that existed in one moment… Read More ›
Clueless Americans and the Cult of Personality

Part One: I Will Not Vote For Hillary Clinton in 2016. Here’s Why.
As you can see, I have not written on this blog since 2014, and that’s because I’ve been totally politically disenfranchised throughout Barack Obama’s two terms. Simply put, Obama was the ultimate establishment politician. As a candidate on the hunt,… Read More ›

Part Two of America the Immoral took me longer than I anticipated to put together. Better late than never. Here you have it. The continued war on women is immoral at its very core. Apparently the GOP didn’t get the… Read More ›
America the Immoral, Part One
Don’t misread the headline. It doesn’t say “America the Immortal.” It does indeed say “America the Immoral.” As a political junkie, I spend a lot of time rooting around, digging up information, and generally keeping myself informed of the day-to-day… Read More ›

Same Shit. Different Day.
Yeah, I know. That’s an overused phrase. I was thinking of using The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same, but that’s overused too. And, frankly, I feel as though I sound like a broken record. However, there’s… Read More ›

It’s Officially “A Sigh of Relief”
It’s Wednesday, November 7, and I’m officially breathing a sigh of relief. I went to bed last night knowing gleefully that the only thing Mitt Romney is president of is the Wicked Losers Club. Yep. If you’re from Massachusetts, things… Read More ›

The Big-Ass Elephant in the Room
Can you guess what the big-ass elephant in the room is this election cycle? If you guessed climate change, you guessed right. It never made it as a debate topic because both sides agreed not to bring it up. In… Read More ›
The 2012 Election Goal: Keep Romney-Ryan Out of the White House. Period.

Toot! Toot! All Aboard the GOP Train Wreck!
I’m definitely not gloating here. It’s waaaaay too soon to gloat. There’s plenty of time left before election day, and the times are decidedly weird. How anybody in this country (who isn’t millionaire status) could even be considering voting for… Read More ›
Asshats and Weasels and Liars! Oh My! (Or, Dispatches From CrazyTown)

Todd Akin is NOT a GOP Anomaly
“It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Mr. Akin said of pregnancies from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s… Read More ›
Romney-Ryan 2012: The One Percent Ticket is Now Complete
