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 […]

March For Women-March against Trump

There was an enormous turnout in city after city for the March for Women today. WNBC is saying that NY saw 400,000 demonstrators. I was there and have been at ‘big’ NY demonstrations since the late 80’s, and I can tell you that this was orders of magnitude bigger than the big anti-war demos predating the […]

Trump’s inauguration day–Live event?

Here’s the deal. I KNOW this is a historic Inauguration in two weeks. However, I’m wrasslin’ with that debbil unemployment, and I will not be heading to DC on January 20th for the purpose of making fun of Der Drumpf’s coronation. However, I have rewritten my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR […]

The economy Trump inherits

“For a three-year stretch from 1983 to 1985 during the heart of the Reagan boom, growth in the U.S. economy averaged over 5.5% per year. These two periods were unusually strong, but they show what the U.S. economy can do with the right policies. By contrast, growth in the U.S. from 2007 through 2013 averaged 1% per year. Growth in the first half of 2014 was worse, averaging just 0.95%.”

HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE –the Trump era reboot

We are now in the Trump era. Even if the folks attempting to tip over Trump by begging electors to vote against the state totals, we will never be able as a nation to escape what has been wrought on us by this election. And I suspect all attempts to reboot the election will fail. […]

Trump on rigged elections–Crazy?

I really hate Donald Trump. I’m not just saying that now. I’ve posted numerous articles here about him. I definitely do not think he deserves to be president (though I don’t think Clinton does, either–read this). Both of these ‘human hairballs’ are facing indictment for crimes that could rise to the level of impeachable offenses. […]

The Jobs Lie–Trump calls it

Everyone reading this knows I’m not a fan of Donald Trump. But he got something right and even MSM has to admit it. I’m not talking about election fraud (which everyone is pretending didn’t happen in the Clinton Vs Sanders dustup). This is fundamental to the case Hillary Clinton is making for a ‘third Obama […]
