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 […]

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 […]

And while we are on the subject……

Of Mark Steyn-a completely useless man. Here's another point of view that highlights my steadfast belief that Mark Steyn should just go fuck himself: “Had we rolled out something that was very smooth and disciplined and linear, they would have graded it well, even if it was a disastrous policy. We know that, because that’s […]

And now for a bit of good news.

I have said repeatedly, that the reason our Galtian overlords get away with the types of lies and slander they write daily-is because our libel laws have become so weak. So its nice to see someone with the gumption to take one of the worst offenders in the Liars Club to task. On Friday, the […]

Some people remain true to form.

Some people are just incapable of change. Or understanding anything. Like Jim Hoft, The Dumbest Man on The Internet. Or his worthless colleagues at the Liars Club. Consistently-worthless pieces of s**t, each and every one of them. And Charles Pierce had the temerity this weekend to point that out: There is nothing in there that […]

The law of unintended consequences.

The irony here is rich: A new Kansas law allowing gun owners to carry weapons in public buildings, including schools, has thrust a major Des Moines-based insurer into the national gun control debate. The EMC Insurance Cos. insures 85 percent to 90 percent of all Kansas school districts and has refused to renew coverage for […]
