Win or Lose, Trump is Now the Face of GOP

They can deny it all they want, but even if Trump loses the GOP nomination, he and his offensive, questionable & even delusional world view now represents the modern Republican Party.

GOP’s Slide Toward Fascism Has Become Impossible To Ignore

When Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslim’s entry into the U.S. received widespread condemnation, his GOP competitors whom have failed to gain any traction against him jumped on the Condemnation Bandwagon. But everyone seems to forget what spurred Trump’s first foray into politics: questioning the birthplace of the nation’s first African American president and suggesting he was a “secret Muslim”.

Home of the Brave? Govs & Congress Terrified of Refugees. GOP Front-runners Channel… you know who.

Following the Paris attacks, if anyone had just cause to fear strangers from a war zone entering their country, it was the French. Instead, they said to the world, “We will not be intimidated!” and recommitted themselves to accepting 30 Thousand additional Syrian Refugees (which, as I pointed out last week, is a very smart move.)

The Tinfoil Hat Crowd Now Controls the GOP

“We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims.” proclaimed an angry bigoted man man at a Trump campaign event last Thursday. “We know our current president IS one” he snarks. “Right!”, responds the current GOP front-runner. “Wasn’t even born in America, YOU know THAT!” continues the supporter. “We have Training Camps growing, where […]

Despite History of Deceptively Edited Videos, Right Wing Videographers Still Taken Seriously

Right-Wing activists have a checkered history of posting deceptively edited video to suggest events are taking place that in fact aren’t, and despite acknowledging that these videos have been selectively edited by the author, The Media still takes them seriously and gives their “findings” an aire of legitimacy & respectability by suggesting they are evidence of […]

The Botched Execution and The Party of Life

Last Tuesday, the state of Oklahoma began the process of executing two death row inmates by “lethal injection”, which is no longer a simple matter. The original drug cocktail necessary to do the job is no longer made and actual doctors have been banned from taking part in executions… the kind of deadly combination one might […]

Putin Response to Snowden on Domestic Spying Sounds Awfully Familiar

(Just a quick observation as I type this up Easter Evening.) Pseudo-patriot Edward Snowden made an appearance on Russian TV last Thursday and given the opportunity to ask President Putin what I’m certain he believed was an uncomfortable question about domestic spying. He flopped, of course. But all I could think about was how Putin’s response […]

An Unintended Stroll Down Memory Lane

Last week, the company that hosts M.R.S. wouldn’t let me in to update the blog. at first, I thought the problem might lie on my end because my computer had recently started acting funny. As a computer-tech by trade, my first thought was that I had a virus, but several thorough scans pronounced my PC as safe & […]

Guest Op/Ed: The Hunting Of Yet Another President

They’re going to impeach President Obama. I don’t know what their justification will be yet. The right is still obsessed with Benghazi so it might be that (wanna have some fun, ask a winger exactly what happened at Benghazi that they’re pissed about). It might be something to do with the budget. Maybe they’ll find […]

Republicans Seem Eager to Invade Syria Over WMDs On Ten Year Anniversary of “Mission Accomplished”

In 2006, three years after “Mission Accomplished”, the GOP controlled Congress set aside $20 million dollars in the 2007 Defense Budget for “a victory party” to celebrate the end of the Iraq & Afghanistan wars. (note: the linked story is dated “2009” because it was updated, but I’ve had it bookmarked since October 2006, as the date in the URL confirms.) It […]

Defenders of 2nd Amendment Quick To Throw 1st to the Wolves

Who could have seen last week coming? Certainly not my Sunday Night post, which was quickly upstaged by a deadly bombing in Boston and a fertilizer manufacturing plant explosion here in my home state. Also last week, even the pathetic watered-down gun-control bill with over 90-percent support couldn’t get past a Wingnut minority in the U.S. Senate… well, correction, […]

Republicans Desire for Us the Worst of Every Society

Just a short hit & run on this holiday weekend folks. Have you ever noticed how Republicans seem to look at some of the most deplorable aspects of any society and say, “Hey! I like that!” I first noticed this after 9/11, when after we were attacked by religious zealots stationed in a middle-Eastern theocracy, Conservatives started “admiring” (for […]
