I Refused To Celebrate The Fourth of July in a Nation of Utter Hypocrisy
You can tell it’s time for the midterms. The GOP has ramped up the “patriotic” banter, the flag-waving, and the notion that we’re supposed to be celebrating America’s great commitment to freedom for all. The July 4th holiday provides the… Read More ›
It’s 2021, and America Has Entered The Danger Zone

The Democratic Party is on life support and ‘we the people’ need to pull the plug
I’m watching the death of the Democratic Party happen in slow motion. In fact, it’s happening way too slowly. We the people could help the process along by walking away from the party. Lord knows, the Democrats surely do not… Read More ›
Electing a Democrat in 2020 Will Not Solve Our Problems
It is not just the Democrats who haven’t learned a thing. Those being drawn like moths to a flame haven’t learned much either.
The Cheaters’ Lament
Oh, boo fucking hoo on the Democratic Party. They’re worried. Yep. Rumor has it that Democratic Party operatives are worried about what kind of “image” it might project or what kind of “message” it might send about Hillary Clinton when… Read More ›
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 ›
This is Where I Get Off the Bus

Oh, the Humanity! I Mean WTF?
I could have made this another The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly. post, but I can’t find any good right now. These are all pretty ugly, and I don’t want to start yet another recurring post. People who know… Read More ›
The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly.
Oh, it’s time for another edition of The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly. Funny, there’s always more of The Bad. And the Ugly. Such is the state of American politics. Proving that she’s very, very good Elizabeth Warren,… Read More ›
The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly.
Or the column formerly called “The Weekly Ying and Yang.” I’ve decided to take a different approach, primarily because I no longer write that column weekly. And also because there’s far more “yang” than “ying.” Therefore, I believe that the… Read More ›
America the Immoral, Part Two
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 ›
Will We Breathe a Sigh of Relief Tomorrow, or Will We Be Scared Shitless?
Okay, folks. I know you’re probably pretty tired of this stuff, but I have to do this one more time before D-Day. In the event that you are considering Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for the next four painful years,… Read More ›
After This Damned Election is Over…
I don’t know how you feel about the election, but I can’t wait until it’s all over. We’ll either be breathing a sign of relief or we’ll be scared shitless. Either way, after this election the American people need to… 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.

Why You Should Wear a Bag On Your Head If You Plan to Vote GOP

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 ›
Ox-y-mo-ron: A figure of speech in which incongruous or contradictory terms appear side by side. [e.g., Gay Republican; Republican Women]. I apologize for not being vocal of late. Frankly, I’ve been on vacation taking a break from the political world… Read More ›
