The reaction of the ruling elite and their minions in official conservadom to the Donald Trump surge is best characterized as a hissy fit, an extended temper tantrum that the GOP base isn’t doing what they want them to. The elite and their gatekeepers can’t seem to figure out why Trump is surging and why […]
Today I learned that Barack Obama has proposed an Amendment to the Constitution that would limit the 1st Amendment. It would seem that President Obama doesn’t like the fact that we have freedom of expression, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. We also have a […]
It strikes me funny when all these Republicans are running on the same principles that President Bush ran on. And President Bush was a great president. A lot of idiots don’t agree, but do you really want to compare him to Clinton, Obama and Carter. Not on your […]
The talking heads of the establishment are heaping scorn on Donald Trump like squawking crows defecate on those underneath the phone lines where they sit. The long knives are coming out of the sheaths of the New York-Washington literati. Everyone is attacking Donald Trump. But why is such animosity spewing from our media, our corporations, […]
Fellow Comrades, Socialists, Proles, and Occupy Wall Street allies,
Merci beaucoup (that means thanks very much in French – always have to throw in a reminder of my favorite country) for biking, walking, taking public transportation, electric or hybrid vehicles, carpooling or however else you made it […]
The pro-Trump crowd has taken to comparing Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan. Yes, all Republican candidates since 1988 have been attempting to claim the Reagan mantle, but Trump supporters have been loudly repeating this mantra for weeks. Earlier this month, prior to the first Republican debate, […]
“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.”
Donald Trump continues to dominate and fascinate. Why?
Politics, like comic books, thrillers, detective stories, science fiction, professional wrestling, movies and TV is a pulp medium. We Credentialed Members Of The Media Elite wish to sanctify it (and, thereby, ourselves). But come on. […]
It’s a phenomenon like we’ve never seen before. Jeb Bush was the de facto leading candidate in the GOP primary, with the establishment money backing him and the glut of conservatives in the race lagging behind due to their splitting up the conservative vote. Suddenly, Donald Trump […]
While the Mass Media has been obsessing on the Donald Trump phenomenon, Bernie Sanders has been packing stadiums. Sanders’s Madison speech pulled in nearly twice as many as Mrs. Clinton’s official campaign kickoff event (which The Atlantic dubbed “uninspiring”). Mrs. Clinton’s relaunches and presentations continue to draw tepid […]
Seventeen GOP candidates for president of the United States paraded in front of us in Cleveland on August 6th. The establishment media crowed enthusiastically to the viewers about the import of this gathering to our lives as Americans. Chris Wallace and his fellow questioners milked the affair for […]
This political season has started with a big bang. So far, we do not even have to pay that much attention to the boring Democratic side of this process. What we have at this writing is more than 16 serious candidates for the GOP nomination for President […]
Everywhere I turn in political discussions of late the subject is all too often Donald Trump. People want to know why he is doing so well in polling and why nothing seems to take him down. Others claim that he has peaked and can go no […]
Last month the GOP suddenly awoke.
As Michael Tomasky wrote in the March 19 issue of the New York Review of Books:
As matters are shaping up so far, the sense of many people I speak to is that the election appears destined to be about the […]
Quote by Ray Bradbury on reading and critical thinking.
RESOLVED: In seeking the restoration of our religious and civil liberties, the strategy is critical to ensuring the legitimacy behind our cause is just. For 227 years, our […]
Al Gore has turned Global Warming into a $500 million dollar personal fortune
Today is June 25, 2015. According to ABC News’ Bob Woodruff in a June 2008 segment, NYC should be underwater by now, gas should be at $9 per gallon, and a carton of milk […]
