So much for the whole “the poor are takers” claim … From lagging ‘job creation’ to lower charity giving, the wealthy give less back to society Kudos to The Guardian for reporting what’s REALLY going on in America.

SCOTUS to the Poor: You aren’t rich enough to vote

October 9, 2014

Thank you, once again, Supreme Court, for proving again that what passes for a Republican these days wholly believes that voting should only be a right for the “right kind” of people.

Fox News Redefines “Patriotism” as “Mutiny”

Because nothing says “real American patriot” like advocating sedition, treason and mutiny in the middle of two wars. Fox News Talker Says Military Leaders Should Resign En Masse http://crooksandliars.com/2014/10/fox-news-talker-says-military-leaders Kilmeade gives asshats a bad name.

Supreme Court Orders Voter Suppression: Poor Must Choose Between Work and Voting

September 29, 2014

If you still need hardcore proof that what passes for a Republican these days should never again control the White House or the U.S. Congress, you need look no further than that bastion of corporate Fascism, the United States Supreme Court. In a purely partisan vote (I know, shocking, right?), the Fascist Five on the […]

There’s uneducated; there’s stupid; there’s pig-ignorant … and then there’s Louie Gohmert

Usually, someone has to make an extraordinary ass of themselves for me to single them out for a truth attack (that’s what I call it when I use their own words and actions to make my case against them).  In the case of Texas Republican Congressman and certified 100-percent Grade-A asshat Louie Gohmert, that attack […]

The Corporate Fellatio Continues: Congress sets to make tax loopholes permanent

May 5, 2014

1

Republicans in the House are getting ready to grease the skids to make a series of tax breaks and loopholes permanent that only benefit the super-wealthy and their corporations they own. They don’t intend to offset them by closing other loopholes or raising rates; no sensible cost-cutting; none of the “dollar-for-dollar” demands they put into […]

Fox News & the GOPTEA: Cliven who?

April 27, 2014

Now who could have possibly seen this one coming? Who could have foreseen that a man who claimed on a live Fox News interview that the Obama administration created a “blood moon” as part of some vast left-wing conspiracy just so it could conduct a secret, covert, kill-order night raid against him personally … just […]

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

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 […]
