Sorting machines being taken from post offices! Sabotage continues …

NPR's Noel King interviewed the Iowa Postal Workers Union President, Kimberly Karol. I urge you to read the entire transcript. (It’s not long.) She has been at the USPS for over 30 years, yet she has never seen anything like this. Louis DeJoy, a Trump flunky, was appointed as postmaster general. He has numerous conflicts of interests…

Zombie Herman Cain tweets from beyond, will he vote absentee?

Herman Cain’s twitter account is now tweeting without acknowledging that he has passed away. Can verified accounts outlive their owners? Hopefully he won’t be requesting any mail-in ballots. Not exactly Timothy Leary but apparently 9-9-9 truly is an inverted version of 666 and reminds us that Herman Cain’s denial of COVID-19’s contagion proved to be fatal. x…

Trump outlines his goofy plan to eviscerate Social Security

Remember when Donald Trump vowed to eliminate the entire national debt in eight years? And when he promised “4, 5, or even 6 percent” GDP growth? Well, keep those promises in your back pocket, because you’re not going to effing believe this.  Fox Business: President Trump on Wednesday touted his plan to implement a payroll tax deferral, a levy…

Scaredy Trump Flees to Fox News After Biden Chooses Kamala Harris

On Tuesday Joe Biden announced the selection of Kamala Harris as his vice-presidential running mate. The choice was universally acclaimed by all those not affiliated with the Trump Cult or Fox News. For his part, Donald Trump – the KKK's favorite president – slandered Biden as a racist for choosing a Black woman to join…

Polls Show Some Republican House Seats Surprisingly Competitive in Swing States

A number of swing states or potential swing states have recent polls showing tighter than expected races in some Republican districts, including some incumbents. A poor showing by a congressional candidate can have some impact for that state’s Presidential or Senate elections, at least for states that having really close elections.  Most of these polls are by partisan…

yet another Trump presser – more chicken-in-every-pot promises

Q: What do you mean by an “invasion” in the suburbs if VP Joe Biden is elected? President Trump: “They're going to destroy suburbia. And 30 percent of the people in suburbia are minorities.  They say 35 percent, but I like to cut it lower. This one’s importance is in opposition to the Biden-Harris joint…

The History of Trump's World Part 2

In Mel Brooks’ brilliant cinematic spoof, the ‘History of the World Part 1,’ world history is pilloried,parodied, and pushed to the limits, creating uproarious laughter, but that is a movie. In his most serious and somber, oh so somber voice the President credited the 1917(sic)Spanish flu with ending World War II. “The closest thing is…

Trump thought Biden would pick Karen Bass because she wouldn't 'outshine' him

Apparently, Donald Trump can’t conceive of a running mate who isn’t the quasi-vertebrate equivalent of premasticated Cream of Wheat. Four years ago, Trump chose Mike Pence, who’s basically invisible when he’s not conspicuously smooching Trump’s ass. And being the sick, sick little man he is, Trump thought Joe Biden was just as craven and megalomaniacal…
