Judge Aileen Cannon Makes Mitch McConnell Smile
When history finally judges us and this particular patch of time, Mitch McConnell will be of our uber villains. Mitch personally destroyed our government’s judicial branch – an act of total betrayal. I bet “Mitch McConnell’s” name will replace “Benedict Arnold’s” as the epithet Americans use when they want to call someone a “traitor”. Make…
Karma Comes Calling For Mitch McConnell
You might have missed it. The shift was subtle. Karma’s come for Mitch McConnell. When President Biden signs the “Inflation Reduction Act” into law, the majority of Americans will have cause to celebrate. Republicans will, too. They just won’t admit it. The climate doesn’t care about anyone’s politics. The person who’ll celebrate least is Senate…
America’s Having An Ideological Argument, NOT A Political One
The GOP’s hate for democracy stands on one tectonic plate. Our love for it stands on another. America’s differences are ideological not political.
Republicans Are Like Movie Monsters But Waaaaaay More Evil
I’m no expert in movie monsters but I have put words into the mouths of a few. Over the course of my Hollywood writing-producing career, I’ve worked with a few name brand movie monsters: Freddy Krueger, He Who Walks Behind The Rows (The “Children Of The Corn” franchise) and especially the Crypt Keeper from HBO’s…
Let The Brain Drain Begin!
Hear that deafening suction sound? It’s the brain drain beginning. Fact: the cynical, corrupt religionistas who just took away every American woman’s reproductive rights never thought for two seconds of the ripple effects their spurious actions would cause. They never thought about them and didn’t care. Unfortunately for them, those ripple effects will boomerang viciously.…
Republicans Are Like Movie Monsters – But Way More Evil
I can claim a certain “insider knowledge” where movie monsters are concerned. I’m no expert in them but I have put words in the mouths of a few name brand movie monsters: Freddy Krueger, He Who Walks Behind The Rows and the Crypt Keeper. In order to do that, I’ve had to get “intimate” with…
America’s Gun Laws Have Been Written BY White People FOR White People And To PROTECT White People
I repeat: America’s gun laws have always been written BY white people FOR white people, the whole point being to protect WHITE people (from everyone else). In fact, the history of America’s gun laws – after the Second Amendment was written (and the gaming of the Second Amendment began) – is the history of white…
Greetings From Sparky -The Dog That Chased The Car – And Caught It!
Hi there! Sparky’s the name (I’m sparked by my faith that feelings are always better than facts!) and I am the dog that just caught the car! Yessirree, I am the wind beneath the wings of fifty years of hope that cynically pivoted from fighting desegregation (when that fight failed) to caring ardently about “saving…
Now That The Republicans Have Their Crown Jewel, They Have No Idea How To Keep It
Ya can’t blame Republicans for always making rookie mistakes. When it comes to being good humans, they’re rookies. At best. They’re an object lesson in what happens when you do things for all the wrong reasons. They’ve focused on ending Roe v Wade – and “privacy” as a “thing” in American jurisprudence – for fifty…
The Anti-Abortion Crowd Just Got Their Wish And, Boy, Are They Gonna Regret It
As my old pal the Crypt Keeper used to say – with a darkly delighted cackle – “Be careful what you wish for, kiddies, you might just get it!” The conservatives have used the “pro-life” movement as their stalking horse. Conservatives couldn’t give a fly eff about anyone else’s life. If they knock someone up…
