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. […]

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. I’ve been chastised by Democratic Party operatives for decades—I think the first time was in 1985 after I first moved to Cleveland—for proudly calling myself […]

FRANK JACKSON IS DONE

August 12th, 2016

I’ve concluded that Mayor Frank Jackson WILL NOT run for re-election. I don’t believe he has the fight left in him for a fourth term. And he has to know that he will not have an open field with only fake opposition as Ken Lanci, who had money but nothing else to offer. In other […]

PLATFORMS ARE WORTHLESS WADS OF PAPER…

July 26th, 2016

So, I’ve listened to the speech with the three minutes of applause and multiple instances of booing and Bernie’s assurances regarding by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party and while I’m emotionally moved—I really, really want to trust Bernie—I’m unconvinced. I think the mention of the platform pulled me […]

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT…

July 22nd, 2016

There has been a political conspiracy meme running this election year(s) that Donald Trump is actually in cahoots with the Clintons, more effectively than anyone could have imagined, to destroy the traditional Republican candidates and then self-destruct so that Hillary can dance into the White House. Or, maybe the run is all a prank gone […]

THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LOVES HILLARY…?

July 21st, 2016

As if anyone needs the final little nudge to convince them that both parties are fucked because they’re both so far up the asses of the billionaires that Charon gets more sunlight, then consider this headline from The Intercept: Chamber of Commerce May Prefer Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. Zaid Jilani writes: The president of […]

NINA TURNER AND JILL STEIN IN 2016…?

July 17th, 2016

When I checked my stats for yesterday I noticed a sudden interest in a post from 13 February: NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…? In that post I wrote: So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were […]

GROUND ZERO, CLEVELAND AND DONALD TRUMP…

July 17th, 2016

In Nothin’ But Blue Skies: The Heyday, Hard Times, and Hopes of America’s Industrial Heartland, Edward McClelland wrote in 2013: [Cleveland’s Slavic Village] was more than 50 percent African-American. After the slumlords came the speculators, the house-flippers. Ohio had some of the weakest lending laws in the nation. Slavic Village, a neighborhood full of unwanted […]

JOIN NINA TURNER IN THE FIGHT TO STOP TRUMP…

July 11th, 2016

Nina Turner emails: As a former state senator in Ohio—and someone who campaigned hard all over the country for a real economic populist, Senator Bernie Sanders—I won’t be silent as Donald Trump comes to our doorstep to be officially named the Republican presidential nominee after the Republican National Convention comes to Cleveland one week from […]

THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL…

July 9th, 2016

In my book evil is like dark or cold, the absence of their opposites good, light and heat. So, for me, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both represent the absence of good and voting for either is a negative vote for my country; a country and a constitution I gave 11 years of my life […]

HOW BERNIE VOTERS ARE BEING TRANSFORMED…

July 7th, 2016

One of the political questions of the moment is: how will Bernie voters be transformed post-convention when their candidate returns to being the only independent senator in Congress? An email this week from Northeast Ohio For Bernie Sanders provides a view: The United States Senate is voting on legislation as early as this week engineered […]

June 16th, 2016

So, this phase of the fight is over and the next phase has begun. I need to watch this again, and again, but the part that has stuck with me for now comes at time mark 1434 where, in talking about the Democratic Party Convention in July Bernie demands: That the Democratic Party passes the […]

Dan Roberts, reporting in Bernie Sanders’ new slogan looks beyond nomination: ‘The struggle continues’ for The Guardian, writes: From the dying embers of his presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders has forged a new slogan that gives a clue to what the defiant leftwinger will do next after losing the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton. “The struggle […]
