More “bad days” ahead. We’re not going to throw up our hands even as social media now shifts to predictable Islamophobia. Notable is that the shooter in Boulder bought his gun on the evening of the  Atlanta shootings. A Brady Bill might have stopped him. By the end of February, people around...

Trump’s Gettysburg Address was not the Four Seasons Total Landscaping that one might expect, but he may have one eventually somewhere as an exiled POTUS*.

There’s a BeijingBiden website, but Trump seems to have decided not to use this insult in speeches, leaving that meme to surrogates and media bottom-feeders. The meme was important to the Trump campaign in April, but since China “prefers” Biden, no amount of “China Virus” can offset Americans’ awareness of...

Weird night as Jill Biden tackled a protester on stage in California and voters waited over 5 hours to vote in Texas.

Long before Trump, today’s GOP lost any ability to be constructive on just about anything. If something is good, they reflexively oppose it.  People having healthcare? Oppose. People going to college? Oppose. Stopping gun massacres? Oppose.  Renewable energy? Oppose. Their entire policy on immigration is bigotry and hate. Their policy...
