TWEET LIE ONE, LIE TWO, LIE THREE, LIE FOUR…

November 5th, 2017

Every time I think that maybe I should reconsider my canceling my Twitter and Facebook accounts—which I did back in 2013—I’m reminded by journalists I trust just how bad the two platforms are for the intellectual health of anyone. Writing in Four Viral Claims Spread by Journalists on Twitter in the Last Week Alone That […]

FALSE EQUIVALENCIES FROM THE ALT-WRONG…

August 17th, 2017

American, by virtue of its entangled roots, is an insanely convoluted language filled with words possessed of multiple meanings and pronunciations. People who aren’t fortunate to learn the lexicon and grammar from birth have a much harder time learning our language than we will ever have learning theirs. Seriously. One of those words is Right. […]

LOOKS LIKE A BERNIE RALLY TO ME…

June 17th, 2017

Given the young woman wearing a New York Yankee cap on the left and the size of the crowd, you might be forgiven for mistaking the event for a Bernie Sanders’s rally from last summer. The people gathered in the crowd are, in fact, there to hear Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Great Britain’s Labor party. […]

MAKING DEMOCRATS ELECTABLE AGAIN…

June 5th, 2017

In the 21st century’s second decade the surest path to election to public office boils down to repeating four words as often as possible to voters: I’m not a Democrat.

TIME TO WIPE OFF THE LIPSTICK AND GET REAL…

April 28th, 2017

Let me be clear. I voted for Bill Clinton once (I voted for Ralph Nader in 1996) and I would have voted for the proverbial yellow dog down the street before I would have voted for Hillary Clinton. Fool me once, well, you know, but I’m not about to get fooled again. As events happily […]

ARE OUR BILLIONAIRES BETTER THAN THEIRS…?

April 19th, 2017

Maybe. I suppose. I feel really uncomfortable with that idea. If there was one central trope to the 2016 campaign to make Senator Bernie Sanders President of the United States, it was that Bernie was not supported by the billionaires. He made no distinction between bad billionaires and good billionaires. That was, and I think […]

March 26th, 2017

First up this morning, Trevor Timm on Everyone loves Bernie Sanders. Except, it seems, the Democratic party. My takeaway: In other words, [the DNC elite are] doubling down on the exact same failing strategy that Clinton used in the final months of the campaign.
