How to Heal the Nation

Republicans, especially Lindsey Graham, think that the best thing we can do to heal the nation is to let Donald Trump get away with all of his crimes and lies. Methinks that is far more likely to encourage racism, division, and corruption. After all, Trump is still claiming that he actually won the election in […]

Potatoes for Brains

Alabama’s new GOP Senator Tommy Tuberville is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. As Groucho Marx said in Duck Soup, “He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don’t let that fool you. He really is an idiot.” According to the Alabama site AL.com: As a candidate, Tommy Tuberville was […]

Do you feel like this?

When will it be ok to start breathing again? After the inauguration? After we’ve gone a week with Trump not appearing in the news? After the midterms?

The Domino Effect

Elon Musk tweeted this earlier, but I’m not totally sure if it is serious or meant to be a joke! I think you could probably make a case that without Facebook, none of this would have happened.

Trial by Twitter

On Sunday I posted the video from former California governor (and movie Terminator) Arnold Schwartenegger. This video has totally gone viral. The tweet has more than 1.1 million likes, which is better than Trump has ever done. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Trump did have one tweet that did better, with 1.9 million likes. However, […]

Tools of White Privilege

I think everyone noticed that it is only bad to ransack a government building if you are not white. Or if you are white, then if you are a liberal. They left off explaining how you address a BLM protest — “Throw the thugs in jail for 10 years.” For a MAGA mob — “We […]

The Terminator

This is the most powerful speech I have heard about the events at the Capitol, from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Survival

The NY Times ran an opinion piece titled “Can Donald Trump Survive Without Twitter?” I think the question that may be even more important is “Can the Media survive without Donald Trump?” Trump’s constant sowing of division and outrage has been a bonanza for media. Not just “are they able to survive”, but also “are […]

Sedition!

Thank you, Randy Rainbow. I think I will be dancing around today singing “Lie-Lie-Lie-Lie!”.

Ding Dong, the Trump is Banned

Today, Twitter permanently suspended President Trump from its service “due to the risk of further incitement for violence,” effectively cutting him off from his favorite megaphone for reaching his supporters. I say, it is about time! And to anyone complaining that this is against the First Amendment, the Bill of Rights does not say that […]

Righteous Anger

Stephen Colbert has never been so angry, and rightly so. Watch this.

Lock Him Up

Just a few minutes ago, Donald Trump went back to stoking violence (luckily, Twitter removed it and locked his account). Trump has also vowed that he will not leave the White House when his term is constitutionally over. He needs to go. He should be stripped of the presidency. Now. Not in two weeks. Now. […]

Backbone

Once again, Republicans in Congress are too chickenshit to stand up to a delusional autocrat who is hell-bent on destroying their own party. Instead, they are resorting to threatening violence. Or when Trump was exposed for bullying the Georgia Secretary of State to “find” additional votes to throw the election, Senator David Perdue attacked the […]

We Can Do It!

I love this comic by Clay Bennett. Stacey Abrams is a national hero! She was able to flip Georgia’s electoral votes for Biden, just by getting democrats out to vote, and with any luck she will do the same thing for the senate.

Optimism!

Well, today is the election in Georgia. Is everyone holding their breath like I am? Please please turn this country around before things get even worse! I can only hope that Trump’s base is starting to figure out that his behavior after the election is that of a spoiled brat baby, a con-man, and a […]
