RIP Elijah Cummings

The President You Deserve
The President You Deserve
Why is the public so helpless in light of a lawless and corrupt president?

Doing What Americans Won’t
Doing What Americans Won’t
Until we Americans get off our fat asses nothing is going to get done.

In Decline and Failing
In Decline and Failing
The United States is in decline and failing, and just about everybody is in severe denial about it.


Open Defiance  (Posted: 16 October 2019)
It’s not just Rudy Giuliani who is defying a Congressional subpoena, but also Mike Pence and the Department of Defense. Seems like people with nothing to hide are all telling a co-equal branch of the federal government that they won’t comply because well, they just don’t have to.

O, to be a white man in this country! You can flaunt your lawbreaking in public, defy Congressional subpoenas and be home in time for dinner.

People of color? Beat up, locked up, or shot up before the end of your first boast.

White man’s power games are a thing to behold.

Pointless  (Posted: 15 October 2019)
I’m certainly glad to see that we’re all still whistling past the graveyard with this latest Democratic debate with the still too large field, stupid format and utter pointlessness of thinking that any functional president can answer questions in 75 seconds.

And are we still going to pretend that there should be any debate at all between the Democratic nominee and the incumbent criminal? That we we should treat this all as normal and keep sticking to norms? Another pointless gesture.

The NYT Shuffle
The New York Times knows how to play its liberal and progressive audiences like a fiddle, who refuse to cancel their subscriptions in protest.

Stop Me Before I Kill Again!
Who’s afraid of the House of Representatives? Certainly not Rudy Giuliani.

I’m Shocked That You’re Shocked
Tech companies are run by young people who have zero regard for privacy and accuracy. Quelle surprise.
