CEOs

Warning, warning! I ventured off the planet for a few days and visited Fox Universe. I was told that President Joe Biden controls gas and petroleum prices. Putin is not really as bad as people say, and Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a self-hating Jew manufacturing chemical weapons with the help of...

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Ted Cruz admits he’s a corporate shill but like Matt Gaetz’s procurer, Joel Greenberg, prior crimes don’t count if you can get a pardon, even from the press. But hey Ted, confession is good for the soul because you don’t have to rely on the...

I have heard Democrats touch trickle-down economics on the edges. But they always seem to fear hitting it not only head-on but for decimation. Biden takes trickle-down economics to the cleaners See full episodes here. The construction of this segment of the president’s speech was perfect. Understand this. It isn’t that  Republicans...

Time after time, succeeding presidents have followed less than stellar Republican administrations feeling obligated to bestow forgiveness. Richard Nixon masterminded a crime, known to every police drama watcher as B&E, breaking and entering. Nixon was disgracefully relegated to the dustbin of history, but that dustbin was a mansion off the...

Donald Trump is on quite a losing streak. He’s so desperate he wants to look in Joe Biden’s ear and make him take a drug test before tonight’s debate. Pretty rich, huh? I’m reasonably certain Biden can get through a Trump debate without drugs … which makes him a better man than I am, because...

Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) can (but not will) save the US economy.

An article in The Atlantic confirms that today’s Trump presser revealed that Trump’s irresponsibility in privatizing the COVID-19 response came from refusing to use many non-US options available earlier. Favoring US firms to produce tests has been part of the “grave costly errors”. Even as there’s an election that needs major...

Just how bad do you have to be to lose re-election as the right-wing conservative incumbent in one of the reddest states in the union? I ask because that’s exactly what is happening right now in Kentucky. The election is less than a month away, and Matt Bevin is ranked the most unpopular...
