The First 5 Letters in Obamacare are Why Trump’s Desperately Trying to Sabotage the Law

While I’ve frequently joked that if you want to predict what Donald Trump’s going to do, just guess the opposite of what Barack Obama would do — that’s not really a joke. It’s obvious that Trump’s completely obsessed with his predecessor. An egomaniac who can’t stand when someone shows him up, with the 44th president […]

There’s a Better Way: Remarks to the South Carolina Democratic Party Executive Committee

Good evening.  My name is Arik Bjorn. I sense relief in the room.  “So that’s how he pronounces his name.” BJORN is Norwegian for bear.  And that is precisely the animal that represents my pending campaign against “Status Quo” Joe Wilson.  Grizzly, not koala. MAKE NO MISTAKE:  The Wilson Dynasty will fall once and for […]

An Open Letter to Bill Clinton, from a Former Neighbor and Bernie Sanders Supporter

Dear President Clinton: We used to be neighbors, though I doubt you would remember me.  I used to live just down the street from you on F & 19th.  I often took evening strolls by your government housing quarters on Pennsylvania Avenue, and waved.  Every once in a while, a sniper atop the White House […]

Why I Am Voting for Bernie Sanders, by Way of Cornel West: Be a Hope

Mom fell into the donut hole months ago, but she never told me.  Then she fell even harder—and the call came that she was headed to the hospital by ambulance. In the emergency room, the doctor asked my mom why she hadn’t been taking her medicine.  A screwy look appeared on her face—the question prompted […]

Hillary Clinton’s False Statements On Bernie Sanders’ Healthcare Record Are Disgraceful

I have made it a point not to speak ill of any of the candidates in the Democratic presidential primary, and have even defended allegations against Hillary Clinton by conspiracy nuts that claimed she works for Monsanto – although it is no secret that I am an ardent supporter of Bernie Sanders. I accepted the […]

Bernie Sanders Blasts Republicans For Wasting Time And Making Things Worse

The Republican Party has repeatedly tried to repeal or defund Obamacare since it was passed. I’ve lost count of the number of times they’ve tried to overturn the law, despite the fact they have almost no chance of doing so as long as there is a Democrat in the White House. Vermont senator and 2016 […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Visits Kim Davis in the Clink

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! My, that cell door makes an awful sound when it closes.  So definitive in its restriction of freedom. Not to worry:  though you rot away on a steady diet of Soylent Green and mop bucket water, you find yourself at the end of a centuries-long line of glorious martyrs whom the […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow’s Vacation Bible School Concentration Camp Wonderland

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Yes, that’s me! The one and only famed Chief Pastoral Officer of the multi-billion-dollar global faith enterprise we like to call Cubic Zirconium Cathedral Ministries. Why, if there’s a fleck of heavenly emerald or sardonyx out there waiting to be hoarded, we just focus our little mustard seeds of faith and […]

Bobby Jindal Wants To Shut Down The Supreme Court After Marriage Equality Ruling

If you’re a right-wing conservative, today capped off what was a very, very bad week for you. You know what? I kind of feel sorry for you. It must be hard taking so many legal body blows in such a short period, especially for those of you who thought god was on your side. The […]

Paul Ryan Gets Crushed After Chris Wallace Exposes GOP Lies About Obamacare On Fox News (Video)

I’ve always been a casual fan of Chris Wallace – especially his interview skills. He’s typically anchored Fox News Sunday with somewhat of a “right lean,” but he’s never been on the level of somebody like Sean Hannity or Bill O’Reilly when it comes to over-the-top conservatism. Wallace is probably the one individual on Fox News who I’ve seen […]
