Morning Joe Has A Hole In His Cup

Morning Joe says that the MM isn’t fair to those questioning Ford. Really? Go ahead and ask. What part of her story has holes?

1-She told the story over the years to friends and shrinks.

2-She didn’t report to police like hundreds of thousands of other victims of sexual assault.

3-She was a 15 yr old girl, you dumbass

4-The four “witnesses” that wouldn’t corroborate included the assailants, Mark Judge and Kavanaugh, and two others downstairs at a summer afternoon party 36 years ago. There was loud music. How would they know what happened upstairs?

5-The one girl who was downstairs believes Ford.

6-Ford doesn’t remember the date and location of the party.
• I can’t tell you the date when my father died, but he’s still fucking dead. Ford explained the science of the brain to the redneck republicans who don’t believe in evolution or climate-change, so that’s not gonna work. The voluminous literature surrounding our memories of traumatic events however show we remember the event, but not always the details surrounding them.

7-The calendar’s significance relies on the idea that summer parties as teens were only on weekends. This wasn’t a “party” as much as a get-together of friends and they occurred all the time, even after a weight lifting workout with PJ.

8-FORD has NO contradictions in her testimony. NONE. Kavanaugh has dozens of lies.

So Morning Joe? SFTU. We in the Mainstream Media are principled and not sucking up to purple viewers in a desperate attempt to hold onto a pathetic exercise in self-aggrandizing.

Never Again. Again.

Growing up, I didn’t know many Jewish kids. I was a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed, privileged white male. That said however, I was raised by a single mom and four older sisters whose honor and integrity shaped not only the way I thought, but my actions as well. Raised Catholic in the sixties, the only thing …

Trump’s Economy Isn’t Your Economy

Trump brags about the economy, but why? The stock market has boomed but over 80 percent of the stock market is owned by the richest 10 percent of Americans so most Americans don’t feel a boom, but more of a prod on their backside. Tariffs? Trump’s steel tariffs have cost Ford $1 billion, forcing Ford …

Anger, inc

“The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling.” -Lucretius So I’m at the gym, and there’s big TV in the locker room.

Here Comes The Judge, There Goes Our Freedom

Kavanaugh is a nightmare. According to Gallup, Kavanaugh has the slimmest margin in favor of confirmation than for any nominee since Robert Bork’s nomination. Environmental protections? As a D.C. circuit court judge, Kavanaugh has repeatedly ruled against climate change advocates, as well against protections for clean water. Affirmative action? Kavanaugh actually worked with Bork in …

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 …
