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 […]

UTOPIA DEFERRED AND OUR BULLSHIT JOBS…

August 18th, 2017

So, I’m nearly finished reading Rutger Bregman’s Utopia For Realists: How We Can Build The Ideal World and one of my first reactions was to think that I should send copies to all my elected representatives. They all need to read this book. This morning I read Chapter 7—Why It Doesn’t Pay To Be A […]

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 […]

THEY HAD A PERMIT, THE OTHER GROUP DIDN’T

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 […]
