The interminable negotiations over Joe Biden’s Build Back Better human infrastructure plan make me feel a little like I did at this time last year, when I was still wondering if Joe Biden would see his shadow on the White House lawn or we’d get four more years of nuclear winter. It...

…suppressing your opposition with power; strong regimentation of society and economy, and dictatorial power- Fascism In the collegial setting, politics is taught as a science. It is meant to be an apolitical study based upon history or comparison, its global effects i.e. international implications, and accepted theory. Although modern fascism...

Why isn’t this guy in prison yet? Is it because he’s rich and white? Or because he behaves like a drug-addled mob boss? Getting to Donald Trump has always seemed a bit like nailing orange Jell-O to a wall. (Yes, I know that simile brutally defames orange Jell-O, which is...

More gaslight: Trump’s speech Saturday in North Carolina was one being delivered by the person who incited an act of terrorism designed to overturn the 2020 election. Lapsing into irrelevance, Trump says the same lies: “The 2020 election was definitely the most corrupt election in our history,” Trump claims after...

Meandering nonsense highlighted by searches for bamboo fibers, and official lies issued from Mar-a Lago, are exactly what Donald Trump expected to be doing in 2016. The 2020 election with Joe Biden as his opponent was what he expected the first time around with Hillary Clinton; a loss. I am...

Once upon a time a long time ago Republicans stood for obstructing Democrats no matter what the cost by claiming  capitalist conservatism or other such nonsense. They were then engulfed in a miasma of tangerine bile. In a resurgence of democracy their tinted demagogue was deposed. Hallelujah! One would have...

To be honest, I’m not all that concerned that the COVID vaccine I took last Friday might have a tracking device in it. For one thing, it doesn’t, because that would be bonkers. For another, I can’t fathom who the hell would want to track me. I can just imagine...

People who recognized their based(sic) bigotry and hatred chose their orange ‘leader’ because ‘owning libs’ fit a general dickishness that conferred a gang-like belonging.

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.

Military-style direct action to disrupt legal elections was the operational frame for a deluded Trumpist vanguard on 1/6. Like Venezuela’s last coup attempt, the insurrectionists hoped that there would be more military and police support, but even Trump couldn’t even commit to his speech promise to march to the Capitol, much less stop...

Trump still pimps the Big Lie, because only Mr. Bigly Orange could be hiding in a hitherto-unaccounted-for room in the White House.
