Free Speech isn’t Free

The Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court decreed that money is speech, so you can’t deny Corporations the right to donate arbitrary amounts of money to politicians. Hypocritically. Republicans are now punishing corporations for their actual speech against voter suppression, by stripping Major League Baseball of their antitrust exemption, and raising taxes on Delta […]

Invasion Narrative

Why are people freaking out about a supposed immigration crisis? After all, there is plenty of evidence that the “Biden surge” is a media manufactured “crisis” started by racist Trump staffer Stephen Miller and Fox News. In particular, apprehensions at the southern border were rising sharply even before Joe Biden was elected. So why the […]

Core Belief

I have to say that I don’t understand the whole GOP need to make voting harder. Yes, I understand that Republicans think they are keeping Democrats from voting, but there is plenty of evidence that it is just as effective at suppressing votes from their main constituencies, including senior citizens and people who live in […]

Bordering on Propaganda

You’ve probably seen reports that the southern border of the US is out of control, with masses of potential immigrants flooding into the US, including terrorists and people who have Covid-19. This is a coordinated PR effort to smear Joe Biden, and almost everything you’ve heard is propaganda, or at least misleading. For example, is […]

Vaccine Tightrope

Donald Trump is trying to have it both ways, which is interesting because it looks more like Trump’s base is controlling him, rather than the other way around. Consider that 72% of Democrats have either already received the vaccine, or plan to get it as soon as possible, compared to 39% of Republicans. In fact, […]

So far…

Every time we think we’ve beat Covid-19 (when it starts to go down), we get overconfident, or just lazy. Will we ever learn? Will we ever pay attention and focus long enough to make this finally go away? After Joe Biden’s speech, Fox News blasted him. Tucker Carlson complained “How dare you tell us who […]

Real Fake News

Seriously? Cancel Culture? Is this the best you can do?

Pobrecito Cucarachas

It’s enough to make you feel sorry for them. Not! Federico Guillermo Klein, a former Trump appointee who was arrested for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, complained that he won’t be able to sleep in prison, the Washington Post reports. Why can’t Klein sleep? Is it because he feels bad that as a […]

The Neanderthals

The governors of Texas and Mississippi have both scrapped their mask mandates and removed all business restrictions. That’s right, it is now ok for bars to open at full capacity. I’ll give you just one guess to which party these two men belong. Making this even more insane is that in both of these states, […]

“I don’t get no respect!”

Ted Cruz says that his wife is “pretty pissed” that her text messages about their last minute trip to Cancun Mexico were leaked to the NY Times. He then plays the victim, saying: Here’s a suggestion, just don’t be assholes. Yeah, like just you know, treat each other as human beings have some degree, some […]

Cruzing for a Bruising

By now, almost everyone knows that while (normally balmy) Texas was suffering freezing weather with millions of people without power, Ted Cruz took off for a vacation in Cancun, Mexico. He was originally busted by fellow travelers (his own constituents?), who posted photos of Cruz in the airport and on the airplane. Cruz tried to […]

Headline of the Week

Published in the Daily Mail: Embattled QAnon congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘openly cheated’ on her husband of 25 years with a polyamorous tantric sex guru and then moved on to another affair with the manager at her gym. I guess she has more than one thing in common with Trump. She’s a cheater.

Cancel Cancel Culture

Republican media continues to complain loud and long about how Trumpists are being censored and silenced, and “the base” continues to eat up this hypocrisy. But the real irony is that it is all about the money. Now the money they have made stirring up resentment and anger is being cancelled by the lawsuits being […]

Republican Cats

Trump’s hold on the Republican Party is only getting worse. Is there any hope for the country?

The More Things Change

… the more they stay the same. If you thought that Trump’s defeat would give the GOP pause to wonder if maybe, just maybe, they are doing something wrong… Well, then you are wrong. Isn’t there some saying about “fool me twice?”
