The panic over 9/11 that led to the Patriot Act is almost understandable. We had seen thousands of our fellow Americans incinerated, and our military and financial invincibility symbols were toppled. So, limiting a few freedoms for revenge seemed reasonable amid anger and fear (at the time). I am baffled...

Voting for the current crop of Republicans is like brushing your teeth with the water running. It is a waste of resources, has no purpose, but all your friends do it. Nothing was more symbolic than the displays of blubbering pique by Congressmen Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan. The House...

Most things in America are solved by either common sense, solemnity, or time. The one exception is race. Historically both the Democratic and Republican party has used race as a means of power and control. Although the Federalist Party is long dead, the current Republicans are fighting, legislating, and restoring...

Sadly, she might have been right.  It doesn’t matter how many police officers were injured or killed, how many were attacked with bear spray, fire extinguishers and flag staffs, or how many eyes were gouged, or how much feces were spread on the walls:  the rioters were white and privileged. But the cardinal...

It is patently clear that Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has lost the fealty, loyalty, or any semblance of respect from his underlings and enemies.

The country needs to take a second look at the meaning of radical and change.

Okay, I’ve been sporadically watching the impeachment trial today. Sporadically, because watching the trial isn’t literally my job. I had other pressing matters to attend to as well.

I’m not entirely sure why Rand Paul’s neighbor beat the crap out of him—and I certainly don’t condone such behavior (only God can judge—and subsequently beat the shit out of—Rand Paul)—but figuring it out isn’t exactly like searching for a unified field theory.

The term “vast right-wing conspiracy” is not an original quote from the then First Lady Hillary Clinton, but in 1998 her use of the phrase baked it into the political lexicon. As with most conspiracies, they are usually borne of self-inflicted grievance or a piteousness dragged out as the last...
