Did somebody get the number of that bus?

The bus that just ran over Donald J. Trump Jr. that is. Steered onto the street by none other than his own Brother in Law: Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee this morning, and what is striking about his extensive opening statement is the degree to which it seeks to insulate Kushner himself […]

The Method in their Madness

The US Senate unveiled it’s latest version of the abomination that is known as the Health Care bill. Initial review says it still sucks with a capital “S”.  It does not ensure that insurers will cover everyone with essential health benefits-in fact it adopts the Cruz amendment, which is a sham designed specifically to allow […]

The slow slide to the bottom

There is a professor,  a professor named Timothy Snyder from Yale University,  who has done a lot of his historical work on fascist and totalitarian societies. He wrote a book published late last year entitled: It’s good book-and I intend to talk about it soon. As you may remember ( but I have not been […]

There is never a thesaurus around when you need one…….

And if you were a news reporter, you needed one this last weekend. Because they all had to spend a lot of time talking about this: And there are only so many euphemisms you can come up with. Fortunately for us all. Samantha Bee was busy looking in the Webster’s, so you don’t have to. […]

Oh about that GOP debate last night

You know Ted Cruz fucked up when he gives Donald Trump, that Donald Trump, a chance to be elegant. I’m no big fan of New York City, but Cruz probably wishes he had not broken out the dog whistles: Explanation to be found over at Balloon-Juice: During Thursday night’s debate, Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald […]

The real winner on Tuesday Night.

Apathy, hypocrisy, laziness, sloth, selfishness, and greed. They are all still hung over from celebrating their victory on Tuesday night. Another election season in the United States has come and gone. This previous Tuesday, a series of primaries in the most reactionary,   southern states produced a variety of results. It is my purpose today, to set the […]

Stupidity on Parade…

Some things just set me off. Today was a day where I came across something quite innocently posted by someone on the old Facebook page, that when one reads it, you just have to shake your head in disgust. Over at The Federalist, a slick conservative blog for the learning impaired, a writer named Bethany […]

There is such a thing as decorum.

I once again, marvel at the stupidity of the pro-gun community. The bodies from the Santa Barbara are hardly even cold-and yet we have to hear this: “Your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.” – Joe the Plumber (yea, that guy) to the families of the Isla Vista shooting victims, Somehow, the word “douchebag” does […]

Erick Erickson is just effing stupid!

Getting the daily cappuccino-before I go to have my what has become an almost weekly fight with Deutsche Telkom. I surfed over to John Cole’s place to see them, quite properly, mocking the latest bit of buffoonery out of Red State: The RedState brain trust has come up with some stunningly dumb ideas for activism over the […]

They went slowly mad……

Well it looks like the mess may be over-for a while. Our Galtian overlords have finally had to cave in and recognize that they were only going to get one thing:   The exercise was pointless from the word go. Sane people recognized that. They also recognize how we cannot persist to allow this wreckless […]

The trouble with mitigation

Henry Hill: [voice over] Now he's got Paulie as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Paulie. Trouble with a bill, to Paulie. Trouble with cops, deliveries, Tommy, he calls Paulie. But now he has to pay Paulie every week no matter what. "Business bad? Fuck you, pay me. Oh, had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. […]

Why I am glad they don't have CSPAN over here.

So I don't have to listen to assholes like Ted Cruz babble on for 21 hours. Law #1: Godwin’s Corollary Law of Teabagging Congress “As any Teabagger protest in Congress grows longer, the odds of a comparison involving the Nazis or Hitler approaches ’1.’ Corollary: The first person to mention Hitler or the Nazis on […]
