Obama’s Senate super-majority: Fiction at its finest

January 5, 2014

0

To all my Republican friends, those of you who are faulting Barack Obama and Democrats for “doing nothing while they had a super-majority for two years,” I’d like to present you with something called “facts.” I know this concept is alien to you, but try to follow along as best you can. A “super-majority” occurs […]

Pope Francis the 1st: Habemus papam or hocus pocus?

March 13, 2013

1

So, Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the new Pope, Francis the First. Wow! How bad does the Catholic church’s reputation have to be if the Vatican is now openly pandering to Latinos? Pope Francis says he’s going to bring a “fresh new face to the Catholic church.”  At age 76?  Can’t you just see […]

National Sales Tax: Not *the* solution, but *a* solution

March 1, 2013

It’s safe to say that the current United States tax code – all 84,319 pages of it – is almost as popular among the vast majority of Americans as the science teacher who gives a pop quiz, a test and seven hours of homework on a Friday. America has what is arguably the world’s most […]

Kick, kick, kick the can, always down the road. Never solve a single thing, just whine and blame and goad. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-57564747-10391739/house-gop-to-seek-three-month-debt-limit-hike Old Fibber Cantor sat in a chair. While the country waited for answers all day. When the debt deal came calling and while Boehner was bawling, Fibber Cantor said “No budget, no pay.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/18/eric-cantor-debt-ceiling_n_2505001.html […]

The Great Obama ‘All White Male Cabinet’ Conspiracy

January 10, 2013

3

SO … today’s outrage du jour among the screeching Republican bobblehead rank-and-file is that President Barack Obama is loading his cabinet with all white men, and violating his promises of diversity. They complaining that he isn’t appointing women. They’re complaining that he isn’t appointing minorities. They’re complaining that he isn’t appointing the disabled. And, of […]

The edge of the fiscal cliff; with nowhere to go but up

December 18, 2012

0

It fascinates me to watch (often reluctantly) the endless parroting of Republican sound bites, talking points and blanket statements about the “dangers” of the fiscal cliff. One should not that the same partisan pundits who are bashing the President for having a bad plan are the same malcontents who spent the last year dutifully passing […]

Let’s talk about Romney’s record as Governor

October 16, 2012

After nine months of desperately trying to get anyone to talk about anything other than his record as Governor of Massachusetts, suddenly Mitt Romney wants to brag about what a fantastic job he did, and why that experience makes him more qualified for the presidency than Barack Obama. Fine, Mitt.  Let’s look at some of […]

F.A.C.T.S.; The Republican Acronym

October 12, 2012

0

The Republican definition of “facts” is that it’s an acronym: GOP House of Representatives F.A.C.T.S. = Fictitious Allegations, Contrived Theories and Spin GOP Senate F.A.C.T.S. = Farcical Antics, Conspiratorial Theater, and Spin Romney F.A.C.T.S. = False Attempts to Convince TEAbaggers of Sincerity Ryan F.A.C.T.S. = Falsify Anything to Create a Theocratic System    

Romney’s Top 10 Debate Lies & the Facts that prove him wrong

October 4, 2012

ROMNEY’S LIE:  “The president said he’d cut the deficit in half. Unfortunately, he doubled it.” THE FACTS:  When Obama took office in 2009, the deficit was projected to be $1.2 trillion during that year, and it ultimately turned out to be $1.4 trillion, according to Congressional Budget Office data cited by The New York Times. The […]

The reasons Mitt Romney is losing

September 29, 2012

3

  There are two major reasons for why Mitt Romney is trailing behind Barack Obama in virtually every poll, regardless of the political leanings of the polling entity, and regardless of the “unskewing” of polls that Fox News claims as proof-positive that Romney is actually crushing Obama in public opinion (on the Bizarro-Reverse world). The […]
