He’s just not worth it

Nancy Pelosi was asked by the Washington Post how she felt about impeaching Donald Trump: I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive […]

It has finally come to this

Republicans are attempting to discredit Michael Cohen as a liar, even though he lied to Congress because Donald Trump told him to. Trump himself called Cohen a “bad lawyer and fraudster”, even though Cohen worked for Trump as his personal lawyer (and fixer) for more than a decade. For Trump, the buck never stops anywhere […]

What we know so far

Yes I know how you feel. You have become numb to the unending parade of scandals du jour. Who wouldn’t? Which is why it is so good for Trevor Noah to put together these helpful compilations of what we know about Donald Trump. And they are true because they come from the mouth of Trump […]

Daylight Wasting Time

Tonight, our country goes back on “Daylight Saving Time“, with the exception of most of Arizona, Hawaii, and a number of territories (including Puerto Rico). As long-time readers know, I don’t like changing the clocks twice a year, and I wish we would just pick one time and stick with it. I don’t care if […]

The Dirty White Collar

Yesterday, Paul Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in jail (3 years, 11 months) on his conviction for defrauding banks and the government, and for failing to pay taxes on millions of dollars of income. Considering that prosecutors asked for a sentence of 19 to 25 years, that is quite a light sentence. Subtracting time […]

Election Fraud is Real!

Ok, I admit it. Republicans have been warning us that massive election fraud is real for years. In last year’s Florida election, Donald Trump warned us that the vote count was “massively infected” with “large numbers of new ballots” showing up “out of nowhere” while other ballots were “missing or forged.” And he claimed election […]

What we stand for

Electoral Vote has a good piece talking about the importance of Democrats taking a stand on big issues. They chastise a recent column by Chris Cizzilla titled “How Democrats are handing Donald Trump a viable path to a second term”. Cizzilla claims that it is dangerous for the Dems to support the “Green New Deal” […]

Surveying Racism

An ironic twist in the scandal rocking Virginia governor Ralph Northam coming from a new poll. Overall, Virginians are deadlocked, with 47% saying that he should step down as governor, and 47% saying he should not (6% with no opinion). However, while 48% of whites say that Northam should resign, among blacks, only 37% want […]

Reality

Reading this comic, one has to be amazed at how absolutely insane our reality has become. I’m beginning to think that impeachment won’t be enough, that maybe it is time to bring back tarring and feathering (in this case, perhaps using Sparky’s penguin feathers). The future, if we are lucky enough to have one, will […]

In a Shutdown Pickle

It would appear that we aren’t in a much different situation than we were before with respect to the shutdown. Donald Trump has just delayed the inevitable. He is still threatening to shut down the government again, and the Democrats have absolutely no need to cave (like he just did). He could call a national […]

Welcome to the Idiocracy

On Friday there was an Indigenous Peoples March at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. A group of teenagers surrounded a Native American elder. What happened was captured on video, and you can see one teen blocking the man’s path, and other teens laughing, jumping around, and mocking the marchers. But here’s the really ironic […]

Is Trump Disloyal?

We created a political system where politicians are routinely bought and paid for. And it doesn’t even take that much money, so anyone can own a politician at bargain prices. Are we surprised if the rest of the world wants to get in on such a good deal? Well, at least it’s a good deal […]

We Should Hope Trump is a Russian Agent

An article in Wired magazine points out that, while the idea that Donald Trump has been compromised by the Russian government and is purposely acting as their agent is horrible enough, the alternative is even worse. The pattern of his pro-Putin, pro-Russia, anti-FBI, anti-intelligence community actions are so one-sided, and the lies and obfuscation surrounding every […]

The World According to Trump

Welcome to the wacky and not-so-wonderful world of Donald Trump, where everything you know is wrong, including all things that come out of the president’s mouth. Can we stand much more of this?

Fool me again?

One of my readers posted a link to an article “What if Mueller Proves Trump Collusion and No One Cares?“. The subtitle is even more interesting, “Last week we saw evidence that Manafort shared polling data with Russians, but most Americans were looking the other way.” The article’s point is that there is (for the […]
