A leprosy spreading across the globe….

Lost in the noise about Trump’s self -congratulatory tour of Puerto Rico, Congress letting health insurance expire for 9 million children, the suffering of the people of Puerto Rico, Russia investigations and the Secretary of State quite correctly calling the President what he is, was this news item: WASHINGTON — Three United States Army Special […]

Still crazy after a couple of years….

That would be Scott Adams. Aging artist of the Dilbert comic strip who has turned into a brain-dead slug and all around reprehensible person. At least we can take solace in the fact that more and more people are coming to understand how loathsome he is, as both a political prognosticator and as a human […]

Only I get to cross those lines

Today its one day later. The usual suspects have come out of hiding, to trot out the same old lame excuses as to why nothing can be done. But never, did I think the purveyors of them would try to lay them on the S.O.’s doorstep. Yet, in yet one more tribute to how low […]

Speaking of Labor Day

It’s a good day to remember the hard working people in America who: 1) Don’t get to celebrate Labor Day on May 1st like the rest of the world, 2) despite low unemployment are not seeing wage increases and 3) some of whom have to work at some really lousy workplaces. Like this woman: You […]

The questions they can’t and won’t answer….

About the GOP drive to destroy people’s lives by taking away their health insurance. Jim Wright, author of the blog Stonekettle Station in a Twitter thread throws out the hard truth that current GOP leadership, in its quest to appease the “base” and repeal the ACA, refuses to acknowledge. By the way, if you are not […]

Sideshow Bowe

It is with sad and undisguised disgust that I watch the collective conservative freak out of the release of SGT Bowe Berghdahl, the only prisoner of war held by the Taliban. In the early morning of June 30, 2009, Berghdal went missing from his unit’s small outpost in Mest, a restive area in Paktia province. […]

The Zombie Eyed Granny Starver, hard at work

Yesterday afternoon, the Devil's apprentice himself, Paul Ryan ( Worthless Cocksucker-WI) and his Democratic counterpart Mrs Landingham (H/t to Charles Pierce for the term) announced they had reached a budget deal. Some deal. Rather than go for the straightforward approach of repealing the rest of the Bush tax cuts and lifting the cap on Social […]

The best favor we could do for ourselves.

Get the hell out of Afghanistan-as fast as we can. I would love to see that happen. If we can't afford to pay our employees their full salary, can't afford to buy the things the nation needs, can't afford to do the things the nation should be doing-then we don't have the money to pursue […]

Yes Virginia, these people are that crazy.

I have been watching with great interest the cries of anguish over the so called "scandals" that have your dyed in the wool member of the Teabag set, salivating and dreaming of the day they get their revenge. Just for grins I actually dropped in on the group "that prides itself on its civilized discussion"-even […]

Cry me a f*cking river.

One of the most frustrating things about this whole silly "Fiscal Cliff" nonsense is that the people supporting our Galtian overlords never tell you the whole story. They just point out the things that they want you to hear-and hope that you are not smart enough, or knowledgeable enough on tax laws to spot the […]

Breitbart still sucks

Charles Johnson has observed on several occasions that while the late, not so dearly departed, Andrew Breitbart was well and truly one of the United States’ biggest morons-the children who write in his stead can top it.   Sure enough, Breitbrat Ben Shapiro’s moronic attack on President Obama’s Thanksgiving address was rapidly picked up by the rest […]

Voting is the best revenge.

John Hinderaker and the rest of the contemptible cocksuckers  members of the Liars Club, are all up in arms over an offhand remark that Obama made in a stump speech a day ago. In a speech Obama mentioned his opponents and the crowd quite understandably began to boo-and Obama said, "No, no, no — don’t boo, […]
