Why the Anger?

If you don’t understand why the #metoo movement is so angry, I suggest you read this short article titled “Everything I can remember“. As a man, I can only guess what this must be like. I try to relate it to the times I have felt threatened or in danger from others and how that […]

Kavanaugh

John Oliver asks all the right questions. For example, why are the Republicans so desperate to put Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court? Couldn’t they find someone who is a little less of an asshole? The interesting thing to me when I watch video of Kavanaugh is that he seems to be acting. I don’t […]

Beer

Now that Donald Trump’s new tariffs against China are in effect, the question is what will this do to prices in the US. Here’s an article that lists what will probably increase in price the most: TVs Homes and home renovations Washing machines Solar panels Cars Beer Cosmetics Electronics Clothing People have been complaining that […]

Sometimes

Sometimes, not always, but sometimes I think Donald Trump wants to lose his majority in Congress at the midterms. I know this sounds crazy, but what isn’t crazy now? Look at it this way. Trump loves to complain about how unfair things are to him. With him as president and having majorities in both houses […]

Obamacare Sabotage Backfires!

The Republicans have never tried to hide the fact that they are doing everything they can to sabotage the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Their hysterical campaign has included a barrage of frivolous lawsuits, purposely driving insurance firms out of markets, withholding reimbursements that were promised by the law, and rendering the individual mandate toothless. And […]

Another disaster

Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the eastern coast of the US. According to the National Weather Service, “This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast, and that’s saying a lot given the impacts we’ve seen from Hurricanes Diana, Hugo, Fran, Bonnie, Floyd, and Matthew. I can’t emphasize […]

Smackdown: Obama v. Trump

There is some great video of Trump in this. Watch while Trump — at a fundraiser in Fargo ND — waves some papers in the air. He brags “It’s four pages of things that the Trump administration has accomplished in a short period of time.” He obviously hasn’t even read them because he later changes […]

The president is collaborating with the enemy

The Trump administration is not fighting a war against climate change, it is collaborating with the enemy. And it is doing it in the sneakiest way possible. In July, the EPA made it easier to release carbon dioxide pollution from vehicle tailpipes. Then in August, made it easier for coal-fired power plants to release carbon […]

Why people talk to Bob Woodward

Stephen Colbert asks Bob Woodward a question (in detail) that lots of us have been curious about, which is “How in the world does Bob Woodward get people to spill their guts to him?” Continued:

Climate War!

The Republican party has lurched from claiming that climate change doesn’t exist (including Trump’s claim that it is a Chinese hoax), to admitting that it does exist but that it is not caused by humans, to just attacking it as a job killer. What they are really doing is “picking winners and losers” by trying […]

Jimmy Kimmel Knows Who Wrote NY Times Op-Ed on Trump

Apparently, Washington (and everywhere else) is going crazy trying to figure out who wrote the bombshell anonymous op-ed published in the NY Times.

The Internal Resistance

The NY Times just published an article by a senior Trump administration official titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration“. The name of the author was withheld (for obvious reasons), but is known to the newspaper. The article echos what Bob Woodward is saying about the administration in his upcoming book. […]

Donald Trump has a Funeral Problem

Ok, I admit it, I’m almost enjoying watching the news from John McCain’s funeral. This is a double whammy for Trump, who absolutely needs to be the focus of attention. And on top of that, everyone involved in the funeral, including the speakers, the family, and even the deceased, are making sure that Trump knows […]

Gun Manufacturers for Democrats?

The Wall Street Journal reports that sales of AR-15 assault rifles and other “long guns” have cratered. Revenues are down 50% since Trump got elected, most likely because gun lovers believe their second amendment rights are safe now that Trump is in office. What’s a gun manufacturer to do? Maybe they should work to get […]

Joe Biden on John McCain

I love listening to Joe Biden speak. Do me a favor and watch this. Don’t read about it. Don’t watch a short highlights video. And please, let’s try to leave politics out of it. No discussions about campaigns, or parties, or any current political analysis. I hope that America still has the ability to just […]
