This is Why Democrats Continue to Lose

(Source) (The original Twitter post has subsequently been removed, strangely enough.)   Over 1,000 federal and state legislative and executive offices lost, and counting: no substance; no ideas.  Just revealing and tiresome obsessions with identity politics, psychological projection, double-standards, fear-mongering, and political violence.     UPDATE (8 Novemer 2017):  Welp.  Who knows how much of […]

The GOP is a Fraudulent Organization

And, as with other organizations (e.g., corporations and unions), it should be held legally responsible for this wanton fraud.  That is what Virginia Republican donor Bob Heghmann is seeking to do.  Last week, he filed suit alleging fraud and racketeering against the State and federal GOP, asserting they knowingly solicited millions in donations in exchange […]

You are Still Crying Wolf (Repost)

Scott Alexander at Slate Star Codex compiled a well-reasoned indictment of the heretofore repeatedly discussed “crying wolf” phenomenon on the Left’s part, using solid facts and logic.  No ad hominem.  No straw men.  No appeals to probability. If you are a Democrat, pro-Clinton, anti-Trump (or whomever), I have always invited substantive discussions and criticisms of […]

It Looks Like Republicans are Slow Learners Too

Reports indicate that House Republicans just unanimously chose Paul Ryan (R-WI) to once again serve as House Speaker. Yes, Donald Trump’s victory was a partial indictment of Democrats, their policies, and other liberal-oriented grievances.  But, it was also an indictment of Washington’s oligarchical status quo, globalism, and general corruption/malfeasance – all things that Ryan is […]
