Congrats to Obama and the DNC

This is brief–I was writing a long piece on the whole ‘fake news’ imbroglio and the word count was in the 2,500+ range so I’ve put it aside for the moment. This is a meme that covers things a tad more succinctly: Regardless of one’s politics, I think we all owe President Obama and Hillary […]

Pedal to the metal (updated)

Trump is ‘transitioning’ as he gets ready to be sworn in. And his Transition team includes people who are going to throw out all efforts to measure or control global heating. He’s even sworn to pull out of the Paris COP 21 agreement, even though it will mean little in terms of sacrifice. Some politicians […]

Reliving the Weimar Republic

I wrote many months ago about the Weimar Republic and how and why it collapsed into fascism once conditions got bad enough. Remember? Bad stuff happening now that Trump has unleashed all his ugly hate in his choices for the people to staff his new administration. Not surprising. I’m amazed that it took everyone so […]

Cog-ni-tive Dis-so-nance in 2016

Waiting for next Wednesday

I hate to say this, but unless The Donald falls down and breaks a hip (he IS 70), he will win the presidency next Tuesday. The accumulated drip-drip-drip of bad news for Clinton has reached a point where she cannot pull enough independent voters to win. The re-opened FBI investigation (which seems to dove-tail with […]

A WWII style mobilization on climate (and other BS)

Among the many DNC platform planks forced on the Hillary Clinton campaign by the Bernie campaign was a forceful item on climate and fighting global warming:  We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global […]

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. […]
