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 […]

[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.

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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]
