A Nation of Immigrants!

Not to mention that these same (white) folks have committed more terrorism than any minority group. Law and order starts at home, especially if your home is espousing hatred, racism, and misogyny.

The Right to be Offended?

I fully expect I’m going to get a bunch of pushback on this one. I welcome discussion about this. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is being pressured into resigning because of a photo from his 1984 yearbook, showing two people, one in blackface and one wearing a KKK costume, both holding beers. Don’t get me wrong, […]

The End of The Wall

I doubt if anyone knows how it will end. Including Donald Trump. Previously, he didn’t seem to care if they called it a wall or even something silly like “peaches“. Now he is back to insisting that everyone call it a wall again and “stop playing political games”, even though it is obvious that the […]

Out-Foxed

In July 2017, Donald Trump announced that Taiwanese manufacturer “Foxconn will build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the production of LCD panel products in Wisconsin”. The 20-million square foot campus was supposed to cost $10 billion and employ 13,000 workers. Trump bragged that this was proof of his ability to revive American manufacturing. Former Wisconsin […]

Running Government like a Business

Politicians who come from the business world like to claim that they are going to “run the government like a business”. There are two problems with this: The first is that running a business is nothing like running a government. If you doubt this, just do a search for “why government should not be run […]

Trump Chickens Out

Today, on the 35th day of the shutdown, Donald Trump announced a temporary reopening of the government for three weeks. And no, he didn’t get any funding for the wall. He totally caved. Why? Could it be because he already lost a handful of Republican Senators, who yesterday voted against Trump as a warning shot […]

It’s 1984 Now!

It looks like 1984 is happening, but just 35 years late. Because the slogans from the novel — War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength — have become the slogans of Donald Trump’s Republican party. Trump tells us that in order to have peace, we — a nation created by immigrants — […]

Security Theater

This comic makes a big point. Donald Trump made stopping illegal immigration the cornerstone of his presidential campaign. But he has been caught employing illegal aliens over and over again, as recently as a month ago. If people like Trump would stop hiring illegal aliens, that would be far more effective at stopping them than […]

All the Infographics We Need

A brilliant, if a bit long, comic by Scott Bateman. If you are being affected by the shut down, like many of us are, just remember all this. And also remember that Trump himself doesn’t even believe in his wall, it is just a way to fire up the base. Whose Fault is The Shut […]

Dumb as a Rock

Who hires people like this? © Nick Anderson We did! We hired Donald Trump. And he hired a bunch of crooks and liars, just like himself. If you really want to see someone as dumb as a rock, consider that Trump decided to hold a negotiating session on live TV with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck […]

More than a Laughing Matter?

It sure looks like Donald Trump fell into a trap set by Robert Mueller. But that won’t stop Trump from continuing to lie over and over, digging his legal grave even deeper. I love how Don Lemon can’t stop laughing about the situation. It is pretty funny that the thing that will probably bring Trump […]

Lock Her Up?

Donald Trump continues to lead his devoted followers in chants of “Lock her up!” at his rallies, because Hillary Clinton famously used private email for government business while she was secretary of state. So of course, we now find out that Ivanka Trump has been using a personal email account for government business. Ivanka used […]

Double Edged Sword?

Conservative media are unfailing boosters of Donald Trump and his administration, but this can also pose a significant (and surprising) risk. The problem is that Trump and his close advisors have become so comfortable with conservative media, that they are starting to say things that are extremely damaging. We had another example of it this […]

Trouble keeping his lies straight?

“I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean, I know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump last month. “I don’t know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump yesterday, trying to distance himself from the new Attorney General he just put in charge of the Justice Department. I think you can tell how bad a […]

Fired Up

The Camp Fire in northern California is now the most destructive fire in California history. With nine people already found burned to death, Donald Trump wasted no time rubbing salt in the wounds by threatening to cut off Federal aid to fight the fires: There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest […]
