Sinking

The Republican Party is destroying itself. Here are the results of a survey comparing the net favorability of several GOP congresspeople. That’s right, Marjorie Taylor Green is the new congresscritter who is racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic, believes in QAnon and that the presidential election was stolen, blames the wildfires in California on Jewish laser satellites, […]

The not-so-invisible hand of the free market

Can somebody explain why I’m getting most of my information about the whole GameStop story from humorous comics? For example, the same thing is now being done to silver futures. And gold futures might be next. Let me be clear, I’m not saying that the manipulation of GameStop’s stock is a good thing. The only […]

What Trump Supporters Like About Him

This is a fascinating video listing 12 things (or accomplishments) that Trump supporters like about him. It also adds two additional things. Watch until the end to see how it all turns out. After you watch the video, here’s the link he talks about. But definitely watch the video first.

Good-bye

First, Trump had a very hard time finding lawyers to defend him in his impeachment trial. Now he is bleeding the few lawyers he was able to find. Five of his lawyers quit on Saturday night. And the Senate has a deadline of Tuesday for Trump’s lawyers to submit a memo laying out his defense, […]

GameStop stops the game

I’m sure that everyone has heard about a bunch of people on Reddit turning the tables on large short selling investors. A reasonably good summary of it is an article on CNN Business titled “The real shock of the GameStop mania was that it didn’t happen sooner“. Or as Jon Stewart says — in his […]

Spice

Bernie Sanders has been getting quite a bit of attention just for sitting in his chair during the inauguration, wearing his famous coat and a big pair of mittens. I’m not sure how many memes have been created from that, putting Bernie sitting somewhere else. But this is the one that made me laugh the […]

Love and Happiness!

I absolutely loved the inauguration. Amanda Gorman especially stole my heart. Yo-Yo Ma melted my soul. Can you identify everyone in this comic?

Trump That Blimp!

Donald Trump will soon be gone, but not forgotten. Because the Museum of London has added the Trump Baby Blimp to its collection. The blimp will be added to the museum’s protest collection, which includes items from the women’s suffrage movement and anti-war protests. The blimp greeted Trump when he visited London in 2018.

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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.
