There’s a Better Way: The Nightmare of a Trump-Cruz-Wilson Regime

November 9, 2016. Good morning!  You better sit down.  Here, have a bagel.  Need cream cheese?  I’ve got a strong pot of coffee brewing.  Trust me, you’ll want it black today. Yep, that’s the morning paper.  Last night’s General Election wasn’t a dream.  It was a nightmare-come-true. You have indeed awakened to an American Regime. […]

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 […]

To Avoid Political Extinction, The GOP Must Stop Donald Trump

Donald Trump is still wildly popular with Republican primary voters, and although there are signs he will eventually implode, he’s doing irreparable harm to the GOP. Trump has been drawing large crowds of supporters, and some of his campaign rallies have turned violent – an issue he has refused to condemn. The Republican Party would […]

The Tea Party Is Slowly Dying, But It’s Being Replaced By Fascism

Remember when the Tea Party was the dumbest thing that the Republican Party had going on? Remember when we had Michele Bachmann and the half-term governor from Alaska as the best examples of how mindless GOP voters had become? Boy, those were the days, weren’t they? Just a few years ago, the Tea Party was […]

Tea Party Fanatic Matt Bevin Wins In Kentucky, Because Liberals Didn’t Vote

Remember Matt Bevin, the Kentucky Tea Party candidate for governor who accidentally said he wanted to drug test seniors on government assistance? The same Matt Bevin who mounted a primary challenge to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell because the Kentucky Tea Party thought McConnell was too liberal? Well, guess what? Kentucky voters just elected that […]

5 Things America Will Lose If Conservatives Win In 2016

I recently wrote about how much trouble Democrats are in if they fail to vote in every election. There is no doubt about it, right-wing conservatives, backed by unlimited corporate funding, are successfully eroding rights and slashing regulations in every state they control. This is especially evident here in Louisiana where Bobby Jindal and right-wing conservatives […]

Conservative Politics Is A Massive Scam

Conservative politics has become less about governing and presenting ideas, and has moved to becoming a long scam designed to take money from their base. As someone who spent their childhood involved in conservative politics and became a liberal as an adult, I’ve watched it become more and more about money. I’m not the only one who […]

A New Poll Shows Record Low GOP Support For The Tea Party

Way back in the beginning, the Tea Party caught my interest. Initially calling themselves supporters of smaller government and lower taxes, it seemed like they were a political group that might represent a change from the conservative politics that brought us the likes of George W. Bush. It quickly became obvious that the Tea Party […]

I Used To Be A Conservative, Now I’m All In For Bernie Sanders

A couple of months ago, I went to a Bernie Sanders campaign rally in New Orleans. While I was there, I took a lot of pictures of the event, and sent a few of them to my very conservative Republican mother. Her observation of the event was that it was primarily young, and very white. […]

John Boehner’s Resignation Signals The End Of The Republican Party

Speaker John Boehner’s departure marks another point political historians will look back on when conducting the postmortem autopsy of the Republican Party as we know it. Speaker Boehner represents a dying breed of Republican, the kind that could work across the aisle when needed but still managed to stick to the party’s favorite talking points […]
