Kamala Harris will write history, but not all of us will enjoy reading it

Kamala Harris will write history, but not all of us will enjoy reading it
In a perfect world, the election of Kamala Harris to the office of Vice President of the United States would be a joyous occasion. Ah, but for that perfect world. I was planning to vote for Harris in the Illinois primary and felt robbed when she dropped out of the race.  I am truly delighted... Read more »

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not
If you find the message in the above featured image offensive, you are not alone. Incredibly, it’s a very commonly repeated fabrication. The logic of the whole reverse racism thing is enough to make you want to delete country music from your playlist. Ours is a culture of incomprehensible equivalencies; bizarre comparisons between two things that... Read more »

Who will tell Dumpsters that we already landed on the moon and Barack Obama is no longer president?

Who will tell Dumpsters that we already landed on the moon and Barack Obama is no longer president?
You may not know the exact date of our moon landing, but you probably know that we were up there. You’re also keenly aware that Barack Obama is no longer president and hasn’t been for almost three years.  You may even cry yourself to sleep just thinking about that very fact. I only bring this...

Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?

Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?
Back in May, I wrote a piece entitled, Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?  Repercussions of that failure have been rippling across this country like aftershocks of a 7.0 earthquake. Mueller may have finished his report and handed it to his boss, as is required of a special counsel, but... Read more »

The view from 30,000 feet may actually be a little closer to the ground

The view from 30,000 feet may actually be a little closer to the ground
Variations of “the view from 30,000 feet” have become a model for our dispassionate review of the news. You hear it on all the talk shows.

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?
America is in the throes of a virulent disease eating away at the fabric of democracy. It is deadlier than flesh eating bacteria and consumes from within. Whataboutism is not new, but the epidemic spreading across our nation is destroying the concept of objective reality.  Donald Trump knows nothing about anything and he doesn’t want... Read more »
