Public Service Announcement


President Obama will be speaking on Monday. I hope the press will be covering it; however, that will be dependent upon whether or not Trump is propagating falsehoods and/or patting himself on the back anywhere near a camera. In any case, it will be lovely to hear someone speak who has greater then nine words in his vocabulary and is capable of thinking in a way that doesn't betray the mind of a poorly educated teenager with the impulse control and knowledge of the world one expects from a newborn.
Welcome back Mr. President. We've missed ya.

From the Excellent Mind of David Frum


The real news in the Alger Hiss case is of course whether Whittaker Chambers had political reasons for unmasking him.

Only the Republicans



Only the Republicans can find fault with millions of people having health insurance. Only the Republicans can fail to see the complicity of greedy insurance and pharmaceutical companies in the problems that plague the ACA. Only the Republicans can celebrate that greed so flagrantly by offering tax cuts to these corporations in this disgraceful mess they are offering up today. Question, why in hell are these malignant, spiteful, elitist, bloody-minded pseudo-aristocrats still in office?

Stop Normalizing Trump!!!

If I hear one more person say that we can't take Trump literally only seriously, I will jump through the T.V. screen and rip their tongue out. We are suppose to be able to take the Leader of the Free World literally. If I wanted serious symbolic metaphor, I would read Jung on the Archetypes or Edgar Allan Poe's "The Mask of the Red Death," "The Sphinx," and the "Conqueror Worm." Jung was on a path of cosmic consciousness; Trump is barely awake. Poe was a genius creating art out of his nightmares; Trump is a nightmare.
Normalizing Trump is becoming the second great scandal of the modern media - helping get the swaggering schlemiel elected is the first.



Bend Over


The new Republican healthcare bill is odious on its face if you don't happen to be part of the one or two percent of people who wallow in wealth and get paid for the privilege. Within its bowels there is a $400 million dollar tax break for health insurance executives - you may remember Trump making a big show of meeting with these people some days ago at the White House.
"The proposed tax break, buried in cryptic language in the Republican plan, would allow health insurers to more fully deduct the value of their executives' compensation on their taxes. That compensation can be as high as tens of millions of dollars, in the case of CEOs of insurers."
The Republican Party has cheated the working man and woman for decades. They have taken our money, devalued our labor and blamed us when their excesses have sent the economy into free fall. This, however, this is criminal. Millions will lose their health insurance, while the parasites who prey on the health of the American people get richer. Resist!!!

Speaking Out on Twitter

The new Republican replacement bill for the ACA targets the usually suspects - the poor, the elderly and the sick. Paul Ryan and his Republican House Caucus are liars and cheats. I call on all my Christian friends to call out these twisted charlatans for what they are - Pharisees. Imitate your Christ and run them out of the government.

Reality Imitates Fiction
