We all know about the hatred the GQP has for providing healthcare for its citizens. They’ve tried to stop the ACA, they don’t exapand Medicaid, they don’t fund public health, anything and everything. Now, we find that there is a near perfect correlation between #COVID19 vaccination rates and voting in the 2020 presidential election. Guess what that means? It means we’re so fucked.

If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in. It’s like watching one of those slasher horror films, you know what’s going to happen and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. Even though the character is being extremely stupid and doing stuff no one would ever do outside of a movie, you still gotta sit there and watch it.

Ever wonder where the flock of voters is going to go to next? Why we all seem to gather round the politician du jour? What’s behind the Buttmentum? Well, it is no more difficult than realizing that thinking is hard.
There are important issues, bills, amendments, and hearings before Congress every week! And, if the Great Civics Lesson has taught us anything, it has taught us that it is our civic duty to be INVOLVED in each and every one of them. And the rate at which this admin sows confusion, chaos, and consternation means that you gotta call every week and work your ass off to keep that call list current. Use this weekly post to help.
I’m reviewing Katy Tur’s “Unbelievable” in three parts! It’s that good! Fantastic treatment of the campaign, covering a campaign, being a reporter, and being a human being caught up in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s gaslighting narcissistic abuse meat grinder. Katy comes out on the other side stronger and better for it… and you will, too.
There are some fundamental differences between conservatives and liberals. So, do these correlates, the circle and the bias, seem to work for you and people you know?
NK perceives the US as an existential threat. The Ol’ Pussy Grabber perceives the Russia-Trump scandal as an existential threat. The intersection of the two is the stuff of nightmares: who prevails, distraction or suicide?
Is Trump a true threat to our democracy or is he a symptom of our ailing society? Read the snarky answer here.
Much of the support for Trump comes from the nihilistic attitude of burn it down… is that really the attitude we electing the president?

The presidential debates are a microscopic fishbowl. What did we learn about Clinton from the debate? Autism, Personality, Family Dynamics, & Sadism
Cut through the crap! What could possibly explain Trump’s complete meltdown during the debates other than science, psychology, snark, sarcasm, and profanity?
Oooh! Clinton is being unfair by quoting Trump’s lies! How untrue!
The first debate is in the bag… and what’s the most important thing that happened? We found out that Clinton’s and Trump’s hands are the same size.
We all know that skeptical look that will freeze you in your dissembling stammering heart.
The debate is here! How much will the debate change the election? The determinants of confidence will influence our interpretation of the performance of the candidates, but what are they? Find out here!
This level of stupid has to be seen to be believed. The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper exposes the ugly underbelly of dumb of Trump supporters.
What a week! But, Trump’s ideas on fighting terrorism stand out. What is the impact of his vague emotional appeals on terrorism or why are we so stupid?
I’ve collected my four posts concerning gaslighting and Donald Trump into one post for your convenience.
