Trump's shutdown reveals the soft underbelly of his so-called "great" economy

Trump's shutdown reveals the soft underbelly of his so-called "great" economy
If you’re my (one) Trumpster reader, your first thought here is that the shutdown belongs to the Democrats. To Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Maybe Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. That’s what Fox News wants you to believe, but take a breath and consider the following: 1. On December 11, 2018 – eleven days before... Read more »

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"
Iowa Congressman Steve King presents a challenge to America on many levels. I’ve quoted fictional President Andrew Shepard in this space before: “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship.

America's government must be purged of the two-headed monsters

America's government must be purged of the two-headed monsters
The Constitution establishes America’s government in three co-equal parts. Congress (Senate and House of Representatives) is created in the very first section (Article I), so it must’ve been pretty important to the Founding Fathers.

Is Senator-elect Josh Hawley a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian?

Is Senator-elect Josh Hawley a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian?
I can’t help thinking that Senator-elect Josh Hawley (R-MO) is a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian.   Running to unseat Senator Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections, Hawley professed his support for the coverage of preexisting conditions, going so far as to tell his own sad story of a chronically ill child.

Fire the negroes, build a wall & drain the swamp. Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses
Beer for My Horses is a strange, macho anthem from uber patriot, Toby Keith.  You can read the lyrics HERE, but you’ll have to google it yourself if you want to see the video. Keith is an enigma.  He’s a troop supporting, freedom loving Democrat who played at Donnie Drumpf’s inauguration.  He also played at... Read more »

Donnie Drumpf and Cindy Hyde-Smith step up to a public hanging
Donnie Drumpf had high praise for Republican Senate hopeful Cindy Hyde-Smith and held held two rallies in support of her candidacy.
