Welcome to the Future!

Donald Trump has nothing left to run his campaign on, except fear and hatred. As they say, will he be able to fool America twice? If he does, then shame on us. The New York Times points out the dystopian nature of our current administration: President Trump, of course, long ago redefined what constitutes normal […]

Birther Déjà Vu

In only took a couple of days for Donald Trump to start spreading rumors that Kamala Harris does not meet the constitutional qualifications to be Vice President (and President for that matter). You know, like he did about Barack Obama during Obama’s presidency. He is so predictable. I guess in Trump’s deranged racist brain, if […]

And the Home of the Grave

There are two good articles out recently, detailing exactly how Donald Trump screwed up the response to the Coronavirus, and his staff enabled him. You may think you already know all about that, but it is interesting to see it all laid out for you. In Slate, “The Trump Pandemic, A blow-by-blow account of how […]

Trump interviews Trump

Only Donald Trump could lose an argument with himself. This takeoff is a heavily modified version of the disaster of an interview that Trump did with Jonathan Swan of Axios, which was shown Monday on HBO. The entire interview is around 30 minutes long, but is still full of cringe worthy moments. Or if you […]

Fraud?

That’s right, 4 cases of voter fraud found in the 2016 election. Out of around 129 million votes cast. That’s 0.000003 percent. Ten times more people die from lightning (43/year). A whopping 150,000 people (and rising) have died from the coronavirus this year. And that’s before we open schools and make things far worse.

Bill Barr Sucks

Bill Barr, who is supposedly the US Attorney General but acts like Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer, testified under oath to Congress on Tuesday. Here’s a list of lies and stupid things he said: Could not answer whether the President has the power to move the date of the election (he doesn’t) Wouldn’t acknowledge […]

Loser Trump

Trump is a bully, but when you stand up to him, he backs down like the loser he is. Just this week, he’s retreated several times: He insisted that Congress cut payroll taxes, but his own party members in the Senate said no. Probably because Trump would have benefited more from such a tax cut […]

I Protest!

The Trump campaign is running this ad on Facebook: The image on the right is labeled “Chaos & Violence”, meant to invoke the protests against police brutality that have been going on around the US. As I like to say, there’s just one problem. That photo is not from the US. It is a photo […]

Alternate Facts?

White House adviser (and white nationalist) Stephen Miller’s grandmother has died from the coronavirus this month. Miller’s uncle (son of the grandmother) said that the Trump administration is partly responsible for her death because of their incompetent handling of the pandemic. In response, the White House issued a statement denying that Miller’s grandmother died from […]

Irony of Death

On Wednesday, trying to justify his sending federal agents into multiple cities, Donald Trump said the following: No mother should ever have to cradle her dead child in her arms simply because politicians refused to do what is necessary to secure their neighborhood and to secure their city. Trump seems unaware that the whole point […]

Portland Moms Speak Out

This is a powerful video from the Washington Post: Speaking of what is going on in Oregon, does anyone remember when Ammon Bundy (son of rancher Cliven Bundy) led a takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon? That was a bunch of armed men taking over and destroying federal property illegally, which […]

Jackbooted Thugs

From a must-read article in The Atlantic: For decades, conservative activists and leaders have warned that “jackbooted thugs” from the federal government were going to come to take away Americans’ civil rights with no due process and no recourse. Now they’re here—but they’re deployed by a staunchly right-wing president with strong conservative support. While Republicans […]

Donald Trump’s America

The Trump campaign has released a new political ad, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America”. There’s just one problem — the video is completely in the present tense. The voice-over uses present tense — as if Biden is already president — and the images and video of protests and violence are also from […]

America

This comic perfectly describes how I feel about the US. Heaven help us.

Free Speech and Boycotts

I don’t understand why some people claim that product boycotts are an attempt to silence free speech. After all, the Citizens United decision clearly established that money was free speech (especially it is money given to politicians for their campaigns!). So isn’t my choice of what products to buy also free speech? Which brings us […]
