TRUMPCARE IS THE GOP’S SHAMBLING ZOMBIE…

September 21st, 2017

Americans love vampires and zombies, in their fiction. Republicans in Congress and the White House, however, think that the solution to America’s rejection of their undead is making the monster even more horrible, more scary, more deadly because of… Jobs. Not mine, not yours, theirs. Alan Fram, writing in Worries of backlash help revive GOP […]

IF THIS BE MADNESS…

September 20th, 2017

America needs a Reverend Doctor Francis Willis; We the People need a Senator Howard Baker to stand up for us and all that is great about America. President Donald John Trump is so blatantly unstable, so dangerous to himself and our nation that members of his own party are questioning his sanity. His Strangelovian speech […]

Jordan Klepper will never run out of material… (Coming 25 September.)

TRUMP’S IDEOLOGY IS WHITE SUPREMACY…

September 14th, 2017

So, if I had read this story yesterday, I might have read a paragraph or two and moved on. Today, however, I’ve read Ta-Nehisi Coates’ latest (see below) and I have to view the story through a different lens. I’ve said before, and I still believe my thoughts to be true and honest, that the […]

‘CAUSE RIGHT NOW ALL WE HAVE IS THE DUMMY…

September 13th, 2017

From The Washington Post: An Ivy League graduate headed to law school, with eyes on becoming her state’s first female governor, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund knew the importance of answering a question head-on. So when judges at the Miss America competition asked her whether President Donald Trump was wrong to withdraw the United States […]

STEVE BANNON STEPS FROM BEHIND THE CURTAIN…

September 12th, 2017

Trevor is funny and on target, but if all you know about the 60 Minutes conversation between Steve Bannon and Charlie Rose comes from the late-night television show hosts (like Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert for starters) then you’re grossly uninformed. I confess that I agree with much of Bannon’s assessment. I also disagree with […]

HARVEY, IRMA & JOSE: GET GOBERNMENT* DONE…

POLICE, NOT POLICE UNIONS, ARE THE PROBLEM…

September 4th, 2017

The tale of Colin Kaepernick, Rodney Axson and many, many other African American athletes who chose to exercise their First Amendment rights to free speech and peaceful assembly continues despite the opposition of fans and now local police. Angela Helm, writing in Cleveland Police Union Refuses to Hold Flag During Browns’ Opening Game, Calling Player’s […]

TRUMP HACKS OFF LIMBS OF THE BODY POLITIC…

September 4th, 2017

President Donald John Trump could throw away millions of dollars in tax investment in our nation’s future to dodge the risk of silencing his cheering minions. Maggie Haberman, reporting in Trump Seriously Considering Ending DACA, With 6-Month Delay for The New York Times, writes: President Trump is strongly considering a plan that would end the […]

TAKING A KNEE IS ALIVE AND WELL IN AMERICA…

September 3rd, 2017

Last Fall I wrote quite a bit about Colin Kaepernick, Rodney Axson and a movement in protest of police murders of black men. Kaepernick, and others, continue those protests this season as they should because the murders continue unabated in Northeastern Ohio and around our nation. We can only expect the extra-judicial execution of people […]

WE’RE THE POLICE AND WE DECIDE LEGALITY…

September 2nd, 2017

Of course, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III just made the situation much worse. Via Mano Singham: We all know why this happened: Police rage.

CROWD-SOURCING THE TRUMP INVESTIGATIONS…

August 30th, 2017

We’ve seen this before, but the idea is just as good today as it was in 2009. One of tactics of individuals or corporations under investigation is to bury their crimes under mountains of irrelevant paper. Online publication and crowd sourcing offers a real response. Mano Singham, in Become a ‘Citizen Sleuth’ and investigate Trump […]

DON’T SWEAT THE JUDICIAL BRANCH…

MUST OBAMA BREAK PRECEDENT AND SPEAK OUT…?

August 22nd, 2017

Perhaps the smallest club of powerful (so far) men living today is that made up of past and present presidents of the United States of America. That group, today, stands at six: James Earl Carter, George Herbert Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, George Walker Bush, Barack Hussein Obama and Donald John Trump. There is a […]

AMERICA IS LIKE A HOUSE WITH NO TOILET

August 21st, 2017

OUR MORAL RESPONSIBILITY IS TO ASK WHY AND
CLEARLY, LOUDLY DEMAND THE DAMN ANSWER…

August 20th, 2017

Sit down. Swallow any food or drink you may have in your mouth. Place any hot beverages safely on a flat surface away from your hands. President Donald John Trump actually spoke a truth when he said, well clenched his fists and read from the teleprompter: Hatred, bigotry and violence… have been going on for […]

NOT AS BAD AS HITLER IS NOT A PASSING GRADE…

August 20th, 2017

The straw that broke the camel’s back is the wrong metaphor if you’re going to talk about President Donald John Trump. The comparison fails because Trump isn’t a beast of burden, he’s a steaming manure pile out behind the barn that simply composts the straw and grows richer. Whew. I feel better now. OK. Jonah […]

FEINGOLD CALLS OUT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY…

August 19th, 2017

Russ Feingold, writing in How the Republican party quietly does the bidding of white supremacists for The Guardian, opines: It takes approximately 30 seconds to send a tweet. A half hour to draft and release a statement. And the shelf life of both is only marginally longer. We should not commend Republican party elected officials […]
