No, Liberals Don’t ‘Need To Find Religion’

When I saw this Washington Post article yesterday, it wasn’t the overly long headline that caught my attention. It was the preachy subhead: “Liberals need to find religion again.” Undoubtedly, it’s because I came across the story on Facebook, where the subhead was shifted up to the top. Though I had an immediate reaction to[…]

Why, Indeed, Do We Want Them?

I cannot resist one more response to the president’s remarks. Tire Fire Many third-world nations lack basic infrastructure such as paved roads, and environmental/safety regulations to prevent disastrous fires and/or pollution. But this photo was made in Oklahoma, near the center of the United States. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry.) I already wrote[…]

Does Anybody Actually Want Oprah For President?

Derpity Derp Found on my Facebook newsfeed yesterday. I’ve seen a few posts and memes from conservatives, poking fun at liberals for wanting Oprah Winfrey to be president. And I’ve seen plenty of posts from liberals and moderates clearly saying they DON’T want Winfrey to be president. What I haven’t actually seen is any rank-and-file[…]

Once Again, Almost Everyone Is Missing The Point

It’s not surprising that Donald Trump is once again in the news for being a racist. What IS surprising, at least to me, is how often the news media — and the public — seems to be missing the point. When Trump used the phrase “shithole countries” to describe (apparently) Haiti, El Salvador, and several[…]

This Draft-Dodger Meme Dodges Truth And Common Sense

(I know it isn’t Saturday, but I don’t feel like changing the name of this series: “Silly Meme Saturday” for one entry.) Today’s Silly Meme I found this meme on Facebook, where the person who posted it was making fun of a Trump voter in her family. “You Elected A Draft Dodger!” is apparently meant[…]

Judicial Nominee Stirs Ire

Though I follow political news fairly closely these days, even I haven’t heard of every low-level judicial nominee that President Donald Trump has put forth. One that I hadn’t heard of before is Howard C. Nielson Jr. — Trump nominated Nielson in September but the appointment hasn’t yet been confirmed by the Senate. Nielson, the[…]

What If The GOP Was Great Again?

It was an interesting exercise for me this morning to compare the official party platforms of two very different parties. Those parties are: * Today’s Republican Party * 1956’s Republican Party I know, I know, it’s just embarrassing to compare, say, Dwight D. Eisenhower to Donald J. Trump. That wouldn’t be fair. But those are[…]

Comment on my Facebook last night, after I asked Trump voters to apologize: “Why would we apologies (sic) when we had to choose either Trump or Clinton? Can you image what it would be like if Hillary was now our President? Well, at least she probably would not tweet so much. The Dotard’s Tweet This[…]
