We Are Under Attack

When this president speaks to the racial divide he helped create, he does so in a way that both fascinates and nauseates.   On the anniversary of the 2017 riot in Charlottesville that killed a young 32 yr old woman, Trump is still equivocating when it comes to the white, alt-rite monsters who look to …

Why Not Bait Our Youth With Hope?

I heard a conservative talk radio host lamenting the opposition to Chicago police filling a car with Nike sneakers in a low income area as bait for young black men. Some stole sneakers, some didn’t, but community activists cried foul. All the while white conservatives said, “if you don’t want to be arrested, don’t steal …

Jim Jordan: A Lightweight Searches For Smaller Opponent

Freedom Caucus attack dog Jim Jordan’s coy announcement that he’s running for Speaker of the House would be no less valid if it was written on fairy dust and sprinkled on Louis Gohmert’s grave. Jim Jordan isn’t running for Speaker, he’s running for Minority Leader. If he gets his wish, he’ll be Leader of a …

Eat Your Vegetables America

It’s said that the President Trump became very upset when he found the first lady watching CNN. She responded to the NY Times report by saying “I watch anything I want.” For the record, I believe she does. Her husband? Not so much. But is Trump that different from the rest of us? Well, of …

Too Much Trump? STFU

I’ve been told that my radio show and stand-up focuses too much on lambasting Trump and his cadre of circus performers. I recently read where SNL is being criticized for doing too many jokes at 45’s expense; that people are getting weary. And to that I say-Go F yourself! Trump is an unmitigated disaster. There’s …

Sanctuary Cities Saving Lives

It’s all BS. Amidst all of the fearful whimpering coming from Trump, conservatives and deplorables, is how “Sanctuary Cities” are making us unsafe, and contributing to crime. That’s a lie. Think about it. Law abiding, tax paying, hard working undocumented Americans have much to lose, not only at the hands of Trump and his ICE …

Hillary; Time For You To Go

It’s time Hillary. Watching the hundreds of thousands of young people march for sensible gun control showed me a picture of the liberal future of America, and it doesn’t include you. For starters, you and President Clinton aren’t liberals. You are establishment politicians who backed the Defense of Marriage act, welfare reform, and hawkish responses …

ICE Makes Everything More Dangerous

“I thought Bay Area would thank me,” said the clueless Trump sh*thole who just made life more dangerous. “I would think that the Oakland mayor and the Congressional representatives in California would send me letters thanking me for removing public safety threats,”acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan said, in an interview with …

In Defense Of Being Liberal

I used to do a daily hit on CNN during the build-up to the Iraq invasion. The producer wanted to call me a Libertarian, because they already had a Republican and a Democrat. At the time, I thought a Libertarian was a Republican who smoked pot. I wasn’t a Republican and I hadn’t gotten high …

NRA’s Winner Take All

Since moving to Ohio in September, I’ve found myself on the mailing list of the National Rifle Association. I’m not sure if it’s because I bought an archery set for my daughter at Cabela’s, or enjoy wearing my Carhartt jacket, but something signals America’s gun manufacturers that I fit their demographic (White? Check. Male? Check. …

Thoughts and Prayers, Guns and Bullets

First of all, nothing will happen. Another school shooting, more dead children. Congress sends their thoughts and prayers, guns and bullets, death and carnage, to Americans, wrapped neatly inside the empty rhetoric of the Second Amendment, all while whored to the huge pockets of the National Rifle Association. And there will be no new legislation …

Morality Clauses Having Nothing To Do With Morals

Hollywood is going to start putting morality clauses in contracts. So if a star does something immoral, they can fire him from the movie and move him into management. Of course in Hollywood, they define morality like the rest of us; as someone else’s problem. ” “I’d never do that, and if I did it’s …

Clueless? With Apologies To Alicia Silverstone

To say the Trump administration is clueless is to insult a mediocre Hollywood movie. After all in “Clueless” Alicia Silverstone said, “. . .in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty.” President Donald Trump is neither that witty nor that naïve. He is, however devious and …

Sean Hannity; He Will Have His Reckoning

For about thirty seconds, I actually felt sorry for Sean Hannity. But that couldn’t last. Hannity opened his show with a strong FOX position that the NY Times lied about the report that Trump had ordered Mueller’s firing last June. Then, near the end of the show, with that shit-eating smirk, said FOX news was …
