As unbelievable as it may seem, the pro-impeachment bunch is still a minority! Go figure! Ye Olde Blogge reminds us that the four factors of minority influence if deftly applied can change all of that.
Recently, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Republican candidate for Senate from Mississippi stepped in a wee cow paddy not once, not twice, but three times! First came the lynching comment, which she tried to brush off as a joke. Then the whole I put out a statement yesterday, and I stand […]
The gaslighting emanating from the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s ass has really taken all of the oxygen out of the room making it nearly impossible for any of us to remain and for those few who do remain to do anything at all for all the choking, gagging, tearing […]
The fish rots from the head, as the saying goes. And, we are living in the three million tons of dead rotting fish off the coast of Florida, right about now. When did the head of the Repubes begin their inexorable decay into the festering cesspool of treasonous […]
White conservatives are angry! Those ding-dang dumb liberals are lettin’ in more and more immigrants and Muslims and promoting blacks and queers over the interests of god-fearing good white Christians! They just ain’t gonna take it no more! They are WHITE RAGED! They’ll stop those liberals from turning […]
This article is right up the Psy’s alley: it uses psychology — although without explicitly identifying the tendencies as such — to explain our inexplicable politics. However, it is not nearly snarky, sarcasticky, or profaney enough. That’s okay, I fixed that by writing this here introduction. It is […]
Few things feel as good as righteous indignation, moral condemnation, and schadenfreude as an opponent gets her well deserved comeuppance. And, this story certainly feels that way to me. It is an I told you so confirmation that does the battered egos of progressives and liberals in Fascist […]

When it was President Obama, the nation’s first black president, the Repubes worried, fretted, and sucked their teethes all the time about how his greasy fried chicken eaten fingers would stain the fine brocade of the couches in the First Mansion and his watermelon rinds would be attracting vermin and his singing of old negro spirituals while pleasant would confirm that we had a lowly shucking and jiving president that couldn’t maintain the office with the respect it so richly deserved.

An article from the “New Republic” on the rising authoritarian ways of the Squatter-in-the-White-House and the Repubes noting in particular the attempt to run roughshod over the DoJ this week and the willingness for the Repubes to look the other way. The Dems MUST re-take the Senate in 2016 and had better re-take the House.
Jared Kushner wanted a back alley communications channel with the Kremlin. Comey soils the reputation of the FBI. Gianforte makes assaulting reporters acceptable. The GOP is attacking the institutions of our democracy.
Two recent polls show the depths to which Trump voters and Republicans have deluded themselves. They believe Trump’s lies! They think he is honest! The Resistance has to continually push back against all of the BS coming out of this WH! Keep the pressure on Congress to do the right thing!
