REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
GET UP OFF YOUR KNEES AND DO SOMETHING…

February 16th, 2018

That is my message to my congressman, James Bupkis* Renacci. Americans don’t need more thoughts and prayers. Americans need lawmakers in congress to do their damn jobs and make laws that allow our children to go to school and learn more than how to react when shots ring out. There is nothing sacred about the […]

A SIMPLE QUESTION: HOW MANY KILLED IN 2018…?

February 15th, 2018

Well, two questions really: Question No. 1: How many Americans have Islamic terrorists killed this year? Question No. 2: How many Americans have Americans killed in mass shootings this year? The answer to question No. 1 is zero. The answer to question No. 2 is far, far too many and the number grew by 17—with […]

GOP SCARE MONGERING BACKFIRES, AGAIN…

February 14th, 2018

I often ask people looking to exclude others or curb civil rights the question: What are you afraid of? For Republicans, and conservatives generally, they fear is of no longer being in a position to fully enjoying their gawd-given rights of privilege. If everyone has the same special rights and privileges as they do, then […]

THIS IS WHAT A BURNING PIPELINE LOOKS LIKE…

February 1st, 2018

To all the people who dismiss spills as a minor concern when considering the hazards associated with fracking, take a close look at the photo above. This is what an exploding fossil gas pipeline looks like at 2:30 in the morning. Erin O’Neil, reporting in Pipeline explodes in Noble County for my hometown newspaper, writes: […]

FACT CHECKING THE FAKE NEWS ON FAKE NEWS…

January 18th, 2018

When I saw the Republican Party headline—The Highly-Anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards—I knew we were in for a Truthiness fest. Glenn Kessler, reporting in Fact-checking President Trump’s ‘Fake News Awards’ for The Washington Post, ledes: The “Fake News Awards” announced on the Republican National Committee website and touted by President Trump pose a conundrum: Does […]

I’M SORRY, IT IS NOT OBAMA’S JOB TO SAVE US…

January 16th, 2018

President Barack Hussein Obama is retired. He did his eight years. Yes, he’s still popular and were it not for the 22nd Amendment—and the threat of his wife leaving him if he did such crazy shit—he would have crushed Donald Trump like a can of diet Coke. But he did his eight years. We cannot […]

THE GOP’S WALKING DEAD UNELECTABLE…

January 14th, 2018

What happens when the Republican Party can no longer control it’s own crazies? Well, first you get President Donald John Trump. But that’s not enough for Trump’s minions. They need more. Much, much more. So, they got Roy Moore, the cowboy who had no clue how to ride a horse (and the horse knew it). […]

AARON GODFREY: LAUNCH EVENT FOR OHIO 16TH…

January 9th, 2018

I met Aaron Godfrey briefly at the December Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus meeting in Middleburg Height. He’s a bit raw in a good way and because I believe that early money is best, I’ve already made a contribution to his campaign. I’ll be making another when I buy a ticket to his Kick-Off fundraiser at […]

REPUBLICANS MUST REMOVE, IMPEACH OR PERISH…

January 6th, 2018

Republicans in Congress face an existential crisis. I know that that was not the message David French meant to transmit in his blog post, but upon reflection, I think that is the 800 pound gorilla in Washington. French, writing in Trump’s Impeachment Prospects Have Little to Do with the Law for National Review, explains: [I]t’s […]

THIS IS NOT A WINNING DEBATE STRATEGY…

January 4th, 2018

When I first saw this cartoon my mind went to Celeste Headlee’s We Have to Talk. I’ve since finished reading the excellent book and posted all of my notes to my electronic chapbook. I think this bit, as difficult as it will seem to contemplate, applies: SHOW RESPECT: In order to show respect, you’ll have […]

THIS IS SUICIDE BOMBING ON A GLOBAL SCALE…

December 28th, 2017

First, clean coal is a fantasy. Second, burning coal hastens the rise of greenhouse gasses and the environmental degradation of the only place we have to live. Continuing to dump carbon into the atmosphere is tantamount to detonating a global suicide bomb. President Donald John Trump thinks that both points are fake news and his […]
