Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President

Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President
You just can’t make this stuff up and it doesn’t hurt my head any less no matter how many times I read it: “Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President.” That’s an actual quote from a Roy Moore supporter interviewed last week in Alabama.  It may have been Ann Eubank,...

Booze, Women and Movies are Exits on the Highway to Wealth

Booze, Women and Movies are Exits on the Highway to Wealth
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) thinks that most Americans should pay more taxes because they’ve been wasting their money on booze, women and movies. Rich people however, who have been saving their nickles and dimes should be able to pass $22 Million to their heirs tax free. Did I get that right? Here’s what he said:... Read more »

Al Franken Took One for the Team, But it May Have Been the Wrong Team

Al Franken Took One for the Team, But it May Have Been the Wrong Team
Senator Al Franken (D-MN) announced that he plans to resign his Senate seat in the coming weeks.  He didn’t actually resign, but said that he was going to in the near future.

Will the Republic Survive the Tax Bill?

Will the Republic Survive the Tax Bill?
In an Op-Ed piece in The New York Times yesterday, David Leonhardt attempted to assuage our fears about the tax bill destroying America. That piece, entitled The Republic Will Survive the Tax Bill makes some great points, but I remain unconvinced. Following is the email I sent to Mr. Leonhardt: Dear David, I am a... Read more »

Sorry, Ladies, If You've Been Harassed, Molested or Assaulted by a Republican, It's just Too Damn Bad

Sorry, Ladies, If You've Been Harassed, Molested or Assaulted by a Republican, It's just Too Damn Bad
I’d like to endorse Roy Moore for U.S. Senator from Alabama, except for one thing.  Moore is a backward thinking, hypocritical, lying, Bible thumping child molester. I guess that’s more than one thing. In any case, it appears that Roy Moore will be sent to the U.S. Senate by Alabamians as the person they feel... Read more »

You are a Loser and Anyone who Tells You Otherwise is a Liar

You are a Loser and Anyone who Tells You Otherwise is a Liar
You may be wondering why anyone who doesn’t know you would call you a loser and that’s a good question. A better question is why the President of the United States treats you like one, but we’ll get to that. If you make more than $1 Million per year, then you are not a loser. ... Read more »

Hugest Crowd in History Attends National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
The largest crowd ever seen on Earth attended the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony yesterday in Washington, DC.  It was absolutely bigly.

Roy Moore Will Win the Senate Race in Alabama and Take His Rightful Place in the Swamp

Roy Moore Will Win the Senate Race in Alabama and Take His Rightful Place in the Swamp
Roy Moore is probably going to win the seat once held by Jeff Sessions and become Alabama’s next U.S. senator. I say that with the same enthusiasm I feel for my once-a-decade colonoscopy. Roy Moore is uniquely unqualified to be a United States senator, which makes him a Republican in good standing. He will be... Read more »

It's Pretty Clear that Russia's Meddling Went a Long Way to get Donald Trump Elected

It's Pretty Clear that Russia's Meddling Went a Long Way to get Donald Trump Elected
Bill Maher has an occasional segment on his show, Real Time entitled “I don’t know it for a fact, I just know it’s true.” I don’t know it for a fact, but Russia’s responsibility for the election of Donald Trump is something that I just know is true. Despite Trump’s claim of a landslide victory,... Read more »
