Pissed off enough?Trump & Co Still walk free

I’m highly pissed off. I don’t think I need to explain this, so I borrowed this graphic from FB, where someone shared it a few days ago. And while it is mostly about Trump and his cronies, Matt Gaetz is featured and his plethora of crimes haven’t been prosecuted. It was a reminder that ten […]

Thank you AGAIN Donald Trump

Roughly six years ago, I wrote a funny little article about Donald Trump, then just a presidential aspirant and rider of escalators. My suspicion was that Trump’s racist and fascist ways would be revelatory not for Trump, but for the rest of the GOP. I didn’t know at the time (apparently, neither did the Daily […]

The Trump Record

This was put up on Quora by a Democrat in the sTate of Indiana (already a rare individual). He goes by the moniker of Indiana War Donkey. I think most of the people following my blog know this, but still…It’s nice to have a reference point for such facts, especially as news organizations missed a […]

Is Trump a ‘doomer’?

If you read more than a few of the 700+ articles posted here, you know I am a follower of the work of Dr. Guy McPherson, a scientist who has argued that we humans have scant time left on the planet (actually, not just humans, but put that aside for the moment). McPherson has been […]

Trump isn’t our last president

I know, I got it wrong Well, I’ve rarely been as happy to be proven wrong, but Trump left DC on January 20th, just as he was supposed to. I was surprised, and apparently I’m not the only one. The Trump acolytes were ready to commit a mass act of sedition in order to keep […]

A ‘Citizens Tribunal’ for Donald Trump

There has been some back-and-forth discussion about the COVID crisis over the past half year. I’ve been sharing this COVID fact-nugget about the relative death toll from the Coronavirus pandemic for a couple months. The numbers are correct AFAIK as of the morning of July 18, 2020. The US and South Korea both got their […]

Trump administration admits we’re doomed

What a sucky, shitty week. Everyone has been so transfixed by the battle over Trump’s SCOTUS pick, Brett Kavanaugh, that we’ve ignored my favorite existential crisis.  (Understand–there are reasons you should be concerned about Brett Kavanaugh becoming a Supreme Court Justice, including this one, but Kavanaugh’s ascension to the nation’s highest court does not constitute […]

“Trump is our last president”

There are currently two sources to the TRUMP LAST PRESIDENT bromide. The one that’s famous is from Michael Moore, film-maker who  just released his anti-Trump film titled FAHRENHEIT 11-9. In the round of interviews leading up to the release, he popularized the scary (though credible) notion that TRUMP will not ever leave the WH. You […]

Paying for Donald Trump’s Empire

This was originally written for Memorial Day weekend. I’m thinking about the things we justify by sending in our taxes. As I point out in my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB, being well-behaved worker bees isn’t getting us ahead and it isn’t a moral stance that can be justified. […]

Trump’s healthcare heist and HR 676

People here know that I had no great love of the Obamacare/ACA solution to the problem that we’re the only wealthy industrialized country without universal health coverage. And (as I predicted here), Obamacare/ACA was going to be extremely unpopular with voters. Hillary Clinton (mistakenly) ran on Obamacare as a boon to people, but unless you were […]
