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 […]

A Pretty Good Imitation of a Russian Agent

Here are 18 suspicious things that Donald Trump has done that make him look like a Russian asset, if not a full-blown Russian agent. Read them.

Giant Shapeless Ass

These are the first few paragraphs of an article by conservative pundit Andrew Sullivan. You should read the whole thing. When is the moment we can say that Trump has clearly gone over the line in erasing democratic and constitutional restraints on his personal power? I’d say declaring a national emergency when there isn’t one […]

Declaration of Victory?

I may be way off base here, especially since I have not seen anyone else float this theory. But does anyone else think that maybe Donald Trump’s speech tonight will: A. Declare a national emergency. B. Order the military to build the wall across the southern border, and to use their money to pay for […]

Two Funny Things to Read

First, McSweeney’s has a hilarious article by Devorah Blachor. The title gives it all away: “I don’t hate women candidates — I just hated Hillary and coincidentally I’m starting to hate Elizabeth Warren”. But it is definitely worth a read. The second article, by Vicky Alvear Shecter, also gives some of the punchline away: “What […]

Exploring Warren

I was pleasantly surprised by Elizabeth Warren’s policy announcement. Yes, I know that this was done in the context of announcing her formation of an presidential exploratory committee, but let’s ignore for a moment whether or not she would make a good president (I’ve seen more than enough of that, given that it mostly consists […]

Arms Race?

© Lalo Alcaraz It is amazing that anyone thinks that it is even possible to build a wall all the way across the southern border of the US. That’s just under 2000 miles long. Even more amazing is that anyone believes that even if it is built, that this will stop illegal immigrants from entering […]

Everyone has an opinion!

© Tom Tomorrow I assume that everyone reading this is just like Sparky the Penguin, am I right? I think this comic captures a big difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. It seems to be true that almost all Republicans believe the holy “talking points” and repeat them endlessly. While Democrats all have their […]

Ironic Immigration

© Jen Sorensen Bad choices often come home to roost, but in this case, it is a vicious cycle where our reaction to a perceived problem just makes the problem worse. Donald Trump rails against immigrants, both legal and illegal. But think about it a minute. Where are these migrants coming from? Mostly from the […]
