AND ON DAY 18…?

IMF DECLARES NEOLIBERALISM TO BE REAL…

August 18th, 2017

So, this long-read caught me off guard. I had no idea that Neoliberalism wasn’t real. I thought the concept had been around since the ’90s (actually the ’30s). Who knew? Stephen Metcalf, reporting for The Guardian in Neoliberalism: the idea that swallowed the world explains: Last summer, researchers at the International Monetary Fund settled a […]

UPDATED: MASS CHARITY WALKOUT AT MAR-A-LAGO
NEO REACTS TO TRUMP’S CHARLOTTESVILLE TALK…

August 18th, 2017

[Update @ 2415: Charities cancel events at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.] Sam Allard, writing in two separate stories yesterday—Cleveland Clinic Says 2018 Gala Won’t Be at Mar-a-Lago and Willoughby South High School Will Drop Confederate “Rebel” Mascot—for Scene, reported on President Donald John Trump‘s descending spiral in Northeast Ohio. I first learned of the Cleveland Clinic-Mar-A-Lago […]

REMEMBER SINCLAIR BROADCASTING? YOU SHOULD…

August 18th, 2017

One of the injuries done to radio in recent years has been the imposition of broadcast packages across stations owned by media conglomerates, destroying local connections with listeners and producing zombie programming. What radio cancers like Clear Channel Communications (the front for iHeart Media) have done to radio, Alt-Wrong broadcaster—and a darling of President Donald […]

OHIO GOVERNOR EPIC FAIL AT TIMEMARK 4:22…

August 17th, 2017

Shame, Governor Kasich. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame…

RICH-BOY GAMBLING CASINO TAKES ANOTHER HIT…

August 17th, 2017

While of late Matt Taibbi, the heir to Hunter S. Thompson has been writing mostly about our current political nightmare, I first came to his writing because of his ability to yank back the curtain on the arcane world of rich-boy gambling known as Wall Street. It was Taibbi that I first heard about the […]

STEVE BANNON IS PACKING HIS PARACHUTE…

August 17th, 2017

The news this morning that Steven Bannon has done what his boss would not signals to me that Bannon is bailing on his Gamergate bros because he doesn’t want to be on the plane when it piles into the ground. Sam Levin, writing in Steve Bannon brands far right ‘losers’ and contradicts Trump in surprise […]

THE HOODS ARE OFF IN TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE…

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. […]

PRESIDENTIAL INTERVENTION TIME MR. KELLY…?

Perhaps a nice dacha on the Black Sea…?

PRESIDENT TRUMP READS A HOSTAGE TAPE…?

August 16th, 2017

When I am reduced to recognizing that Charles Krauthammer is the adult in the room, then I am forced to recognize that perhaps there is real hope for The United States of America or that we’ve gone past looking into the abyss and been pushed over the cliff. This is what Krauthammer said yesterday: To […]

TWEET THAT PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP…

August 16th, 2017

President Barack Hussein Obama just owned the Twitterverse: Obama’s anti-racism tweet after Charlottesville is most liked ever on Twitter. A tweet by Barack Obama condemning racism in the aftermath of a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has become the most liked tweet ever, with more than 2.9 million social media users so far endorsing the […]

A WRECKING CREW HAS ONLY A SINGLE PURPOSE…

August 8th, 2017

The central mission of the Republican Party has been to destroy government’s ability to rein in greed and protect the 99 percent. They now have in a president and top government officials a cadre of individuals who hate government (except when they see a profit to be made) far more than we could imagine. Ralph […]

NOW FLAKE IS WORRYING ABOUT TRUTH…?

August 7th, 2017

Senator Jeffry Lane Flake, R-Az., (a fourth, no second “e,” spelling for our shared name) wants to be the Republican party’s next faux maverick. Now that the Republican Party is crashing down around his ears, Flake thinks that the way out is to now, NOW? to tell the truth? Flake, Whining in Conservatives face a […]

YELLOW TAPING AROUND TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE…

August 5th, 2017

Listening to Trump surrogates on the radio attempt to make a nothing burger out of the grand jury empaneled in Washington D.C. this week made me wonder: if there was already a grand jury working on the collusion-with-Russia case that had been working for months, what was the big deal about the news of this […]

OHIO SENATORS PORTMAN AND BROWN RESPOND…

August 5th, 2017

In recent weeks I’ve contacted my senators—Sherrod Campbell Brown and Robert Jones Portman several times to leave messages regarding Trumpcare via both the phone and email. The senators responded to my messages in emails. The first to get back to me was Sen. Brown on 27 July. Here is what he said: Thank you for […]

NIXON HAD TAPES, TRUMP HAS TRANSCRIPTS…?

August 4th, 2017

I’m printing out a copy of the transcripts, high-lightening the good bits and keeping them handy for the next person I see wearing a Make America Great Again ht.
