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 […]

Trump’s Too Stupid to Realize He’s Just Completely Screwed Himself on Obamacare

In what Donald Trump has admitted was a blatant attempt to sabotage Obamacare trying to blackmail Democrats into “helping him fix it,” the White House announced that it’s going to end subsidies for the health care law. The so-called “master negotiator,” as he likes to portray himself, seems to believe that if he ruins the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Thanks To Democrats, Medicaid Expansion Is Coming To Louisiana

For the past couple of years, many people here in Louisiana have fought to get Medicaid expansion for the hundreds of thousands of folks who desperately needed it. Bobby Jindal turned down the federal funding in hopes that it would score political points with the GOP base for his ultimately doomed presidential campaign. Political experts […]

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 […]

Congressional Republicans Move From Benghazi – Back To Obamacare

On Thursday, we watched the Benghazi hearings go from a thinly-veiled political witch hunt to a partisan dumpster fire. After this debacle that ironically made Hillary Clinton look presidential, Republicans should have learned their lesson and focused on another political issue that might not make them look like desperate partisan hacks. Then again, that would […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Lays Hands on Ashley Madison

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Thanks for swingin’ by the office on such short notice—if you know what I mean. Mrs. Pillow is otherwise engaged this evening hosting an Amway-Tupperware-Avon Mega-Party.  She thinks I’m working late at Cubic Zirconium Cathedral, hunting-and-pecking away on my Sunday morning sermon.  And you could say that I am conducting research, […]

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.
