The Chicago Corrollary.

Share Button

“CHICAGO HAS THE STRICTEST GUNS LAWS IN THE NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!”   Ahhhh… The clarion call of gun worshiping Conservatives everywhere, which tries to tie gun violence to gun restrictions, not only saying that restrictions don’t work, but they may also CAUSE more gun violence because law abiding citizens aren’t able to defend themselves with their own […]

A Brief History Of Conservatives And The NFL.

California Single Payer – The Cost Of Freedom.

Share Button

This year, in the middle of 2017, the California legislature is in the process of moving a bill that would convert the entire healthcare system from the insurance based system we all know and “love”, to a single payer system, that, quite frankly, is completely unknown to the average US citizen. Well, not really. Our […]

Lying – The Record – Trump v. Comey.

Share Button

  What a week!!!! Former FBI Chief James Comey testified under oath during Senate hearings about his interactions with Donald Trump as candidate, then as President and boss. Comey did not have kind words, and under oath, continued to say Trump demanded he pledge “fealty” to Trump. Trump is saying these, and other things Comey […]

2016 Election Aftermath – Bonfire Of The Vulgarities. Pt 1

Share Button

Here are a few thoughts. People did not vote for Trump because of the insane / inane comments and tweets he said… Well… Maybe a few people did. As repulsive as some of his comments and tweets were, let’s face it, we have become numb / immune / apathetic to the vulgarities we are exposed to […]

DAMNED YOU OBAMA!!!!!!!!! YOU’RE NOT VISITING THE LOUISIANA FLOOD!!!!

Share Button

  That’s all over the social medias today. Obama is getting hammered because he is in Hawaii on vacation – playing golf of course (pun intended) – instead of visiting the flood region of Louisiana.  I got to wondering, what did his predecessor George W Bush do when floods occurred during his administration? Tropical Storm […]

Meme Watch – Our Failing Economy And The World War II “Cure”.

Share Button

A Conservative friend on facebook posted a familiar refrain about how FDR’s New Deal policies did not get us out of the Great Depression, that only occurred as a result of World War II. Being a bit of a history buff, I have to challenge that widely repeated assertion. First, lets define an economic depression: […]

When Supposed “Fact Checkers” Fail. UPDATE.

Share Button

I love it when someone at some blog tries to strip fact-checking sites like Politifact or Snopes of their “fact-checking” status, only to have overlooked things that show them to be in error. This is a tricky post to write, because I would be lying if I declared I hadn’t gotten things wrong from time […]

The biggest story of the day, maybe the year, is the fracturing of the GOP and the Trump campaign for the Presidency… If that’s really what he’s doing. There is this very famous news aggregate site that prides itself on being the master at featuring the biggest stories, on featuring the breaking stories before anyone […]

Trump Is NOT Hitler. Pt 2

Share Button

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post that compared aspects of the Trump populist candidacy and possible election to the Presidency to one of Americas most prominent populist Presidents, Andrew Jackson. This afternoon I realized there is a better, if equally imperfect, comparison to be made. It came to me as I was squawking with […]
