Twitter is fast. It is measured in seconds, the speed of the internet link. I stumbled through being misunderstood and told about it on the twitter today and I’ve had some thoughts. Spoiler: liberals are nicer than you think.
It's been five long years of blogging the Trump years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've pulled some of our remaining hair out, but we've made it. It is almost done and our democracy, nation, and souls are still largely intact. Unfortunately, we're not through.There is much more to come as we stitch ourselves back together like some kind of common Frankenstein monster as we recover from the PTSD that Trump gave us and the needless deaths and suffering from #COVID19. We also have to keep #BidenHarris honest & progressive, oppose Republican obstructionism anti-democratic tendencies, and whatever other black swans await us. All of which will be addressed using good old-fashioned snarcky, sarcasticky, profaney fun and psychological insights.
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is ending DACA… sort of. Everything about his announcement from handing it off to Jeff Sessions, to delaying it for six months, to threatening to revisit it if Congress can “legalize” it smacks of needless cruelty and actual institutional and structural violence.
Our democracy is a binary winner take all choice. You helped a candidate win by voting for her or a candidate who didn’t have a chance or you voted for the loser. You own your vote. You own her policies, laws, and governing style. #YouAreYourVote
If he’s talking, he’s lying. If he’s not talking, he’s about to lie. The truth ain’t in him.

A woman puts her sexuality on full display, for the entire world to see and touch . Swiss performance artist Milo Moiré hailing from Europe has done just that to fight against sexual violence and rape. What do you think about this artist’s performance…
We can’t seem to erase white supremacy from white culture! Find out how we made white supremacists. Share your ideas about getting rid of this scourge.
Starting with four Southern states voting for Goldwater in 1964, the GOP has relied on the Southern Strategy of dividing the US along racial lines. #VotingCounts
Since 1964, the GOP has been about one thing and one thing only: white supremacy. It is as true as the Civil War was fought over slavery. People will argue with you, but that’s all they got. Nixon’s Southern Strategy has been used by every GOP candidate since. Reagan kicked off his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi for god’s sake. Recharge those righteous indignation batteries to continue the #Resistance!
All presidents face natural disasters, loss of citizens, and tragedies. All of them have managed to lead and comfort the nation in such times of great need. Only the Ol’ Pussy Grabber failed miserably at it. In fact, he’s been so bad at comforting the Hurricane Harvey survivors, he’s hurt them.
#Resist the Ol’ Pussy Grabber, help the people of the Texas coastal plains, and express your disgust with our current “leadership” by donating to one of these fine organizations that will actually help people in need.
Ever wonder why the GOP has been so hostile to one of our best assets, an educated work force? Perhaps, Hannah Ardent, Nazi expert, can explain the real goal of the increasingly authoritarian GOP.
Louise Linton proved herself #Deplorable on social media. How could her judgment err so badly? Is there any explanation for her #deplorable behavior?
Narcissists believe that rules don’t apply to them, so the Ol’ Pussy Grabber violates one of America’s most highly regarded taboos with reckless aplomb. Will he pay the price or are we too far gone?
The Atlantic and FiveThirtyEight have each published articles about how the GOP is now collectively scratching their collective ass and wondering how to get rid of the dead rat stuck in the wall. Coulda just read my blog cause I TOLD YOU SO!
Okay, Charlottesville happened, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber happened, Boston Commons happened; now what? Here are five things white people can do if they are serious about ending racism
A very effective infographic celebrating the latest sycophant to depart the WH!
In light of the appalling week we’ve had in racism, white people need to ask for forgiveness, apologize, confront racism within themselves, and not let racially insensitive comments and actions pass. White people need to work towards ending racism.
Everything a good person does must be good, right? It just stands to reason, don’t it? That’s what the slavers in the 1850’s and 1860’s thought then, and it is what the apologists think now. Read excerpts from The Atlantic of 1850 countering the same arguments you hear being made today. Sad.
An intoxicating brew of hate, dehumanization, and heightened impulsiveness. And, then he was behind the wheel of a car… What motivated the murderous rampaging right-wing racist terrorist, James Alex Fields, to run down Heather Heyer and 19 others?
There are so many issues that are important, but none are more important than our fundamental right to live. Only avowed anti-racist candidates. ONLY.
