Oil money, Republicans and Russia

From Scott Dworkin, who organizes for the Democratic Coalition against Trump. Many of my friends are fleeing Facebook–tired of the arbitrary suspensions and censorship (AKA ‘Facebook Jail’) and worried about oversharing on a social network that has its own agenda beyond making a buck. I haven’t done so, primarily because I have lots of ‘friends’ […]

“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 […]

Caviar Dreams, updated

  I originally posted on this topic in 2012, during the time that presidential wannabe Willard Romney decided we the voters didn’t deserve to see his full tax returns.  It was a big deal that he hadn’t made public his FBAR–forms on profits or losses from foreign holdings. That’s all the money from the Cayman Islands and Switzerland and […]

Fascist loving cops in Oregon?

New flash–for those not paying attention, there was a rally of rightwing groups in Portland, Oregon on Saturday. It was ostensibly in support of the Republican senate campaign of Joey Gibson.

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. […]

Happy 2018, DOODS!

We made it through 2017. It was a farkin’ disaster for the most part, but we did it. Trump was every bit the train wreck of a president I thought he’d be, and we’re leaning into economic territory we haven’t been in since 2007–lots of debt that’s unsustainable, that will never be repaid, and trillions […]

Fake news and confessions of a sucker

Last week, I wrote (based on numerous overlapping news reports) that Trump was set to fire Mueller on December 22. The event of 12/22 was the signing of the Tax ‘reform’ bill. Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has said and continues to say, there are no plans afoot to fire Mueller. I felt played, […]
