Friendly reminder: retiring U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R. PA) is still an asshole and will not be missed: Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania on Thursday blocked a bill meant to bar private debt collectors from seizing checks issued as part of the recent stimulus bill. The law that Toomey...

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...

Recovering memory and historical revisionism in sex work might be the sad product of many repressive regimes. What becomes worse is the complicity of academic institutions in white-washing crimes against humanity.  Harvard is no stranger to items like Alan (buddy of Jeff Epstein) Dershowitz’s attempt to move the statutory rape...

I was talking to a colleague yesterday and a word that has driven me crazy since its entrance into the lexicon in the last 20 years came up, ‘microaggression.’ The word bothers me because it carries with it a minimization of racism that soothes the oppressive nature of white privilege....

Pundits in the media want me to believe that because 74 million people voted for Donald Trump, their opinions count more than the 81 million that voted for Joe Biden. Publications, tv talking heads, and analyst say over and over, we need to listen to the 70 million that voted...

Look, I get it—that half the Republican electorate is either unbalanced, selfish or so ill-informed that Trump looked like a reasonable pick; but why do some Democrats insist on sleeping with (sorry Joe) the enemy? Almost immediately this weekend, the winners fell for the media's attempt to sow dissension. Over...

Good God, Little Lord Fauntleroy. Read the room. What exactly are you trying to accomplish with this response?

Hunny Bunny & Clod performed Ozark cosplay in St Louis’s Central West End neighborhood. The court of public opinion is now open and class/race affiliations now emerge to conflict.

I’m liking this piece from Politico: Amy Klobuchar is kicking off her next act. Two months after ending her presidential campaign and amid vice presidential speculation, the Minnesota Democrat is launching a new effort to help direct money and campaign help to down-ballot Democrats. The endeavor — called the Win...

If there’s one thing Donald Trump is good at, it’s shouting the same outrageous lies over and over again. As a former reality show host whose most discernible skill was fake-firing people who weren’t actually employees, Trump understood the value of a catchphrase. “You’re fired!” may have been the “What...

Kudos to Rolling Stone for finding this: In a 2016 audio recording from what is thought to be a private Goldman Sachs event, Bloomberg first can be heard referring to the audience as “my peeps.” He then went on to talk about what his priorities would be if he were running for...

This is pathetic: Instead of exclaiming “Ho, Ho, Ho” this holiday season, how about touting “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” on your Santa hat? Instead of being on Team Rudolph in the reindeer games, how about pledging your allegiance to Team Kavanaugh in the judicial fight? Or, as Sen. Thom Tillis’ 2020...

So the White House is still refusing to cooperate with the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and the pr*sident has so far been even less interested in acknowledging congressional subpoenas than Tiffany Trump.

Besides the odious Chuck Todd, there was another jarring part to the first Democratic Debate for president.  I have had to listen to the pundits and journalist say with certainty that Democrats CANNOT spend all their time attacking Donald Trump.  Voters want to hear what Democrats will do for the. ...

Like any other voters, I have always wanted to know a Democratic candidates policy positions and their vision.  Obviously, this is especially true of Democrats running for president.  Because I have been around long enough, I’ve seen some elections where Democratic primary voters had little to no choices — the 2000...

So somehow Donald Trump thinks a report that uncovered more moral rot than a late-night Caligula cotillion totally exonerates him. Then again, he says and does pretty much anything, more or less randomly, that bounces around for more than three seconds his Wiffle Ball of a brain. Like, you know, that we...

One thing is for sure, 2018 had something for everybody. Well, pretty much everybody who was a Democrat, if you’re a Republican, you were shit out of luck.

For the second time in her career, Hillary Clinton has signaled retreat on her signature issue, health care. During the Democratic debate, Clinton said she wouldn’t fight for the type of single-payer system she once supported because she’s afraid of what might happen during a contentious debate. Now, there are things we...

“Extremist Islamic Terrorists” An oxymoron. “Islamic” is the generic term for all things Muslim. Used properly it applies to practicing Muslims regardless of country, sect, race, or sex.
