Can’t ban guns? Try taxing gunpowder.

Share

Any attempt to ban guns is an exercise in futility. Time to think more creatively.

Puerto Rico Crisis the Result of Years of Conservatism. Coming soon to a state near you.

Share

Conservative policies of the last 40+ years has utterly devastated Puerto Rico. So then, for Donald Trump to then attack them for their poverty in the middle of a humanitarian crisis only highlights the destructive incompetence of Republican policies.

GOP Healthcare Plan Would Be Largest Shift in Income From Poor to Rich in History

Share

The GOP’s proposed elimination of the Medicaid Expansion in ObamaCare to justify a massive tax cut for people making over $300 Million dollars a year is not just obscene. It’s historic.

Trump Failures Demonstrating Why You Can’t Run Government Like a Business

Share

Despite having absolutely NO experience in public office, Donald Trump ran for president on his record as a successful businessman, promising to run the country like a business. 100 days of failure in, we are seeing why that’s a strategy doomed to fail.

Smart Businessmen don’t Lose a Billion Dollars, Mr Trump

Share

According to Rudy Giuliani across several Sunday shows yesterday, the possibility Donald Trump may not have paid any income taxes for 18 years because he ran his company into the ground in 1995 makes him “a genius!”. Seriously. I’m not making that up. The former NYC mayor repeatedly defended the possibility that Trump may have paid absolutely nothing in […]

GOP Frontrunners Reveal Their Moronic Dark Agendas for the Country

Share

The presidential candidates of BOTH parties descended upon the Iowa State Fair this past weekend, but when reporters asked the GOP frontrunners for policy specifics, their horrifying agenda should send shivers down the spine of any sane voter. Donald Trump said the problem of illegal immigration has become SO bad we have “no choice” but to round […]

21 Things I (Re)learned From the GOP Debates

Share

All SEVENTEEN Republican presidential candidates took part in at least one of three GOP debates last week (one on CSPAN & two on Fox.) I don’t know how many of you also watched the full 2-hour Prime Time GOP debate on Fox last Thursday, but I definitely wasn’t surprised by anything I heard (other than the […]

Where Is the Accusation of a CRIME to justify a Tax-Payer Funded Investigation into Hillary’s Emails?

Share

Once again I find myself in the uncomfortable position of defending Hillary Clinton. Yesterday’s poli-talk shows all covered “Hillary Clinton’s emails” and the fact she didn’t turn over her personal private emails to the GOP controlled Congress for scrutiny. In fact Clinton freely admits that it was “probably a mistake to use just one email account” while […]

Cruz & Carson Latest Republicans to Complain About Income Inequality

Share

Now don’t get me wrong, while I applaud the GOP’s new found concern over “income inequality” and the stagnation of the middle-class, I’m reminded of the old joke when The Menendez Brothers were on trial for murdering their parents and the possibility of them asking the judge for leniency because they were orphans. Last month, […]

History Has Shown Us What Happens With Republicans In Charge – and it’s not good

Share

Probably THE reason I’ve been writing this blog every week for the last ten years is because of the importance of elections. As the subtitle says, “Recording History for those Who Seek to Rewrite it”. Of course, you wouldn’t need to be reminded of something if you had no power to change it. Not only […]

Guest Blogger: A Degree Of Civilization; The American Prison System

“The degree of civilization in a society may be judged by entering it’s prisons” ~ Dostoevsky Pop quiz, kids: Which nation has more of it’s populace imprisoned than any other country on earth? Nope, it’s not China. It’s not Russia either. Cuba? Good guess but they’re number five. According to Wikipedia (which has it’s problems […]
