Black and Tan Fantasies

It is now comically apparent that there are no depths which the loony right wing won't sink to in order to defame this president. What they lack in intellect they more than make up for in sheer gall. I'm referring to what I'll call "Tan Gate".

Triumph of Rationalization: Today’s GOP

The author, a trained social scientist, examines the sociopathic behavior of the current incarnation of the GOP and posits an explanation for their ability to be on both sides of so many issues depending on how it affects them or their party.

Uncle Sugar, I Can’t Control My Libido!

Mike Huckabee has revealed my secret - Democrats have turned me into a beggar for cheap government birth control because I'm a helpless victim of my gender and I need pills to control my libido! Meanwhile the GOP proves how much it respects me by giving me mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds and freeing me from the burdens of making decisions about my body and earning equal pay - what 'war on women'?

Chris Christie is Shocked, Shocked Bullying Was Going On

There are so many holes in Governor Christie's story (if he's truly eager to get to the bottom of something he just learned about, wouldn't he ask a few questions of his staffers?, how could he lose 2 nights sleep the day after he just found out, etc.), it's way too easy to refute it. So I'm taking the low road, making musical fun of the whole thing. It's just too tempting!

No, Rand Paul, 2 + 2 Doesn’t Equal 6!

I know it's tempting to turn facts inside out to make ourselves feel better. But the facts are clear - extending unemployment benefits helps the economy, which means it would cost even less than that stupid government shutdown last year!

Megyn Kelly Just IS Clueless

In the recent flap over Fox anchor Megyn Kelly's comments about Santa and Jesus both being white, Ms. Kelly needs to remember some basic maternal wisdom:

  1. 'Historical' and 'verifiable' are not subjective - check your facts and your dictionary before you go on air (and remember, we can watch the recording!)
  2. You can't complain about being the victim in a fight you started.
  3. Making fun of people is wrong in general, but when a public statement is begging for ridicule, it's only human to give into temptation!

Not Conservative At All

Ever wonder where to place yourself within our political dichotomy? Any good story must adequately define or at least develop the characters within but an attempt to apply this axiom to our American Political Heritage could become confusing. If the labels are not working now then perhaps it would be useful to recall the historical context in which they originally came about in this informative article.

Here Comes Jebbie

So Jeb, the slightly less stupid Bush brother, wants the White House. At least that's how it looks given his sudden gusto for the media and move to the hard right in quest of the blind, crippled, and crazy Tea Party vote. This article chronicles Bush family failures of the past and the downward spiral of the GOP since the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

My Kinda Pope

The author, a lapsed Catholic, applauds Pope Francis' eighty-four page Apostolic Exhortation which takes  the "new tyranny" of "unfettered capitalism" to task and shines harsh light on the Fox News driven "right wing scream machine" and its severe case of "spastic apoplexy" in reaction to a Pope who condemns avarice, takes his vow of poverty seriously, and seeks to put Christ back in Christianity.

If My Uterus Were a Gun

"If My Uterus Were a Gun" is psycho mom Lauren Mayer's scathing response to the GOP's attack on women's reproductive rights and ceaseless attempts to roll back the sexual revolution contrasted against their adamant refusal to enact sensible gun policy.

Trashing Tea Party Talking Points: White Supremacist Defection to the GOP

This article gives you the facts you to need to easily shred one of the most infuriating teabagger arguments: the Democrat Party is the party of racism. While that may have been true prior to the failed Dixiecrat party, it's not true today. This article details the defection of white Southern Democrats to the GOP and Mitt Romney ultimately winning the South.

2016: Obama’s America–Bad Remake of the Manchurian Candidate?

NeoCon and avowed Obama hater Dinesh D'Souza‘s movie is no more a documentary than Fox News is fair and balanced. It’s propaganda, designed to cash in on the anti-Obama sentiment of the Radical Right who will no doubt believe it as easily as they do the distortions, misinformation, and outright lies of the GOP and Fox News.

Education Is Our Best Hope

Barry James recounts childhood memories of visits to his grandparents home in a small Texas town where Mrs. Kieke, a former school teacher, impressed upon him the importance of education to a free and self governed people. Like Mrs. Kieke the founders also believed education essential to self government. Thomas Jefferson founded the Univerity of Virginia in 1819 and, in 1817, proposed a plan for public education. Jefferson believed education of vital importance and felt "no other sure foundation can be devised for the preservation of freedom and happiness."

My Kinda Pope

“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1-3.

And the beast called itself GOP and written upon its seven heads are: Avarice, Cowardice, Entitlement, Homophobia, Ignorance, Misogyny, and Racism. And the meek shall cry out in agony. And the beast shall be slain by the Lamb, in their name. And the beast's name shall be erased from the minds of men forever.

Amen
