Concealability had nothing to do with Monday’s massacre in Boulder, Colorado, but the details tell us more about the marketability of semi-automatic firearms using high-capacity magazines. Discussing open-carry regulation may have been rendered irrelevant with the death of the police officer although some details will be important: was he carrying his “patrol rifle” and...

We remain weary about the callow stupidity of the GOP/GQP but we must not patronize or condescend about how superfluous their grievances have been and continue to be. Now that we know more about Trump’s sexual practices, fascist fantasizing seems altogether rote and boring, but certainly redolent of a banality...

The Atlanta spree killings are unfortunately a story with structural similarity to events elsewhere. How do we know that Robert Long wasn’t on his way to Mar-a-Lago when the cops performed a PIT maneuver on him after he killed eight people. Darn hypotheticals of the culture wars. Mar-a-Lago as spa resort...

Approaching 4,000 deaths per day, Trump’s big policy win: stronger showers, faster dishwashers. Trump’s legacy will be 300,000 dead—and three-martini lunches. And apparently Trump is coming home early from Florida because he's excited about the Senate attempt to overthrow the 2020 election. x When Republicans who denied #COVID19, called it a hoax...

I knew — felt in my gut — that Trump’s reign of chaos would be, well, chaotic. But sheeee-ite, I never thought it would be this bad. And I can be a pretty dark guy. But gosh, I’m not a psychopath. I don’t watch snuff films. I don’t enjoy videos of...

From CNN: Former Vice President Joe Biden reassured Senate Democrats he would mount a vigorous effort in the campaign's final stretch, barnstorming through key swing states and helping crucial Senate races in the process, according to Democratic senators on a conference call Thursday.

Some have suggested recent actions in Portland are a trial run for martial law, considering how badly run was the attempt at using federal forces in DC. They are DHS and feds, without identification, and refusing to identify themselves.

What is wrong with these polls? Is Trump disinforming himself to make himself feel better (by reading Breitbart). Is Trump negging us by using an old poll right after doing his “first post-shutdown” mini-rally in Michigan? Today, Trump decided to cite a week-old 14 May Hannity page where a “poll conducted...
