I thought you were Proud…Boys?

Sure, there is something to be afraid of when a group of gun-toting terrorists brandishes weaponry to cover their intellectual deficiencies. Whether they or their ilk, make plans to kidnap governors, or declare the “Proud Boys are here” in a profanity-laced group tirade directed at the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, alarm bells generally…

15 Days and Counting

We are fifteen days from electing the next President of the United States. Honestly, if you are still one of the undecideds, I would love to hear your reasons. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was widely criticized for saying if you do not vote for him “you ain’t black.” Other than the obvious colloquial choice…

If it Wasn’t for Trump Luck…

I look forward to this MAGA experiment ending in November and being stuffed away in a coffee can, wrapped in a sock, and buried in the backyard at noon on January 20th, 2021. This embarrassing blight on modern American politics and democracy thankfully has an early expiration date, or so we hope… The big mistake…

'Awaiting to Exhale'

Some of you may disagree, but the idea that the United States Constitution is not a living, breathing document is absurd. Were it not imbued with the capacity for expanding its judicial lungs, America would have suffocated on the choking fluids of its’ past injustices. If the Constitution were not breathing, I would still be gasping…

Sorry, Republicans, but a majority of American Catholics are pro-choice

It is one of the GOP’s tried and untrue slanders, deployed every time a Republican President nominates an anti-abortion Catholic to the federal judiciary. The GOP and its amen corner claim Democrats are waging a “war on Catholics” and requiring a “religious test” for office. This week’s confirmation theater for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is…

Packing the Court?

The Republican Party is in a tizzy over the prospect of Joe Biden being in favor of expanding the Supreme Court while they have packed courts across America. Of course, the GOP, masters that they are of incendiary language, scream court-packing at Biden and Harris at every opportunity. This is not the first time this…

ME-Sen: Maine Democrats Get Creative With Tying Susan Collins (R) To Trump

I like this: Democrats eager to link Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins with President Donald Trump in her reelection race have begun posting campaign-style “Trump/Collins” signs in Maine. They’re similar to the traditional “Trump/Pence” signs touting the Republican presidential ticket of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. In this case, Trump’s name is on top…
