Where do we go from here?

Trump is going to lose on November 8, and lose badly. I won’t be surprised if he loses every single state and territory. And while that’s great that we as a nation reject Trump’s bigoted, misogynistic, racist, sexist, rapist ideology, it’s not good that half of our political system is so dysfunctional to have chosen… Read more »

Why I Really Am with Her

There was no way I was ever voting for Donald Trump in November. And there really was no way I wasn’t going to vote. I voted for Bernie Sanders in the Maryland primary, but once it was clear he wasn’t going to win, I was planning to vote for Hillary Clinton. So it’s no surprise… Read more »

Frederick Douglass: The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro

Every July 4, I read this speech. Now that I have children, I read it to them. Don’t fool yourself that we are, or have ever been a great nation. We are a nation founded on the most disgusting system of slavery, not to mention the genocide of Native Americans. On July 4, hang your… Read more »

Clinton Stole the Nomination and Exit Polls?

This New York Times story misses the mark. Exit polling?

Now I get it, there are actual conspiracy nuts out there who believe this, but the… Read more »

List of People Who Work/Worked for the Donald Trump for President Campaign

This is just my attempt to catalog the names of people who worked for the Trump campaign. There are obviously… Read more »

There’s a lot of emotion right now among liberals who supported Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nominee to be the next president. But if you’re a liberal, progressive, whatever, and you don’t vote for Hillary Clinton in November, you’re a fucking idiot. I voted for Sanders in my primary, but I sure as shit will… Read more »

Stupid Bundy Don’t Know Shit About the Constitution

Remember those idiots who took over a bird sanctuary in Oregon a few months ago because they claim that the federal government has no authority to own any land in any state? So a bunch of armed yahoos took over a bird sanctuary in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. It lasted for a… Read more »

The Day After

When I was a kid, a movie called “The Day After” aired on television. The cast included Steve Guttenberg, Jason Robards and John Lithgow. The film was about the day after the USSR and USA exchange nuclear weapons. It was pretty scary for an 11-year-old, but I was a cold war kid, I could handle… Read more »
