Trump Announces specifics-barren 10-step wonder plan to fix the V.A.

Donald J. Trumps "plan" to fix the V.A. is nothing more than his usual load of vagaries, delegations and "trust me, it'll get done" empty assurances.

It's his personal flaws, character failures, immaturity and despicable behavior that make people genuinely dislike - and even hate - Ted Cruz.

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

September 29, 2014

0

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 […]

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 […]

Romney on blind trusts: Then and now (and then, and now)

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I figure this video is worth a couple of million. . Mitt Romney: He never met a face he didn’t talk out of.

Romney’s Plan: Details, shmetails, just elect me! It’s my turn!

It’s very easy to determine why Mitt Romney refuses to discuss or elaborate on the details of his economic plans for America. A quick trip to his lead campaign website shows that the first half of his plan to increase employment is to give corporations billions of tax dollars to “retrain workers.” Romney’s plan has […]

Santorum: No woman can ever have an abortion … except my wife

January 24, 2012

Rick Santorum is one dangerously denial-ridden hypocrite. He’s best known for his inability to associate his professed compassion for life at the level of the zygote, with the physical realities of human sexuality.  He said same-sex relationships lead *DIRECTLY* to bestiality.  He said that abortion should be outlawed, INCLUDING when the pregnancy is the result […]

GOP on the debt ceiling: “Forget what we said, listen to what we’re saying!”

July 3, 2011

As a blogger/reporter/thinking individual, I love it when I don’t have to really come up with any pithy, sarcastic or salient points on my own to prove an argument. In this case, regarding the perpetual pissing contest about the debt ceiling going on in Washington between “Our way or no way because all we care […]

Two-faced Congress – R and D – blow tax dollars on self-indulgent, extravagant travel

June 13, 2011

With America’s economy in the gutter, gas prices pinching wallets, jobs vanishing, and the national debt mounting, members of Congress proclaim that they “feel Americans’ pain” and are committed to cutting back. But that noble dedication to the public’s trust doesn’t apply to one of their favorite perks — globetrotting to expensive resort locations around […]
