Robert Mueller needs to open a Twitter account NOW!!!

Robert Mueller needs to open a Twitter account NOW!!!
It’s not surprising that Robert Mueller doesn’t have a Twitter account. He likes to present himself as the strong, silent type. Somewhere between Cool Hand Luke and Walker, Texas Ranger.

Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?
Politics in America has long ranged from theater to theater of the absurd.  The lines of what passes for “normal” though, have never been more blurred than they are now. We routinely see people previously held in high regard go off the rails in inexplicable ways. In July of 2016, James Comey held an unprecedented... Read more »

Would you rather see Mitch McConnell shot, hanged or beheaded?

Would you rather see Mitch McConnell shot, hanged or beheaded?
Let’s assume that Mitch McConnell is tried and convicted of being an enemy of democracy and a traitor to this country and the Constitution. It’s not much of a leap. McConnell has committed any number of atrocities worthy of death.  We have to rule out torture though, as it violates the whole “cruel and unusual”... Read more »

Martin Luther King, Jr and the American Presidency
The following was originally posted on January 21, 2013.  At that point in time, most Americans would have laughed at the idea of a Donald Trump presidency.  For today, let’s go back to that time: “We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Michelle Obama...

I'm Really Pissed This Veterans Day and I'm Sick of What Passes for Patriotism

I'm Really Pissed This Veterans Day and I'm Sick of What Passes for Patriotism
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” – President Emmanuel Macron First published one year ago today, on November 11, 2017: There’s about 4,800 homeless veterans in Los Angeles.  Luckily, they’re in L.A. and not here, in Chicago, where it was 20 degrees last night. Happy f**king Veterans Day.... Read more »

Poor, Misguided Freddie Thinks that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Have his Back
Freddie (not real name) likes to put an optimistic spin on things. It’s an admirable trait, but the operative word is still spin. Spin is not truth. Freddie thinks Palestinians will wake up one day and embrace Jews as their friends. He (or she) lives in a world of optimism and imagination, luxuries we may... Read more »
