America Owes Black Women A Huge Debt Of Gratitude

What other demographic so reliably stands and votes decency, dignity and justice? African Americans, and specifically African American women have been the unsung, absolute foundation of the American Left and the Democratic Party for too long now. In Alabama they delivered a dose of much needed hope into a dangerous political season. You can’t really overstate how important their strong voice was in this election. They may have helped turn the tide that will result in saving the country. One of the great ironies of Tuesday’s Alabama special election is that African American women may have saved white working class Alabamians from themselves.

The Psychopathic Corporate Person

The GOPers are busily mashing together their Wealth Transfer Bill. Whether they get it signed into law or not they’ve shown what their dream of dreams is: To make the psychopathic corporate person the master of our country. They don’t even have the decency to hide who their masters are anymore:

Republicans Admit That CEOs And Donors Really Need The Tax Cut Bill To Pass — Or Else

Not only that but the GOPers are down right contemptuous of the the non-corporate beings among us. Senator Orrin Hatch can barely contain his disgust at poor children who won’t bow down to the corporate rich:

The Coup Is Underway –or– See You On The Dark Web

If you want to see a slice of what the future might look like for America, if the corporate coup now in progress is successful, check out Kansas. Koch Industries took over that state’s government some time ago. It ain’t pretty. Their schools are third world-ish, the state judiciary has been knee-capped and they have lots of wind that they could exploit for cheap, clean energy, but the Koch boys won’t let the state do that on account of their big fossil fuel interests. So, yea…

The Hostile Take Over Of America

If we make it out of this mess alive there’s going to be one hell of a clean-up on aisle America. Years worth of mess. Foreign cyber attacks on a, hopefully still, open society.  That’ll be a tough one, but doable. The corporate take over of our country may be harder to clean up. The past 35 years we’ve been cruising down the corporate take over road, but the the last year of Trumpista’s control has seen that take over shifted into hyper-drive.

A Night Of Hope

We needed that. Hopelessness and fear have been palpable for a year or longer now. Finally, a real and serious sign that the sane citizens of America are in this war to win it. The Huffington Post headline: The Future Fights Back, pretty much said it all.

Here’s A List Of Historic Victories Democrats Had On Election Day

Danica Roem’s win in Virginia against GOPer Bob Marshall, who called himself the “Chief Homophobe” and author of the state’s “bathroom bill”, was especially sweet since Danica Roem is a trans woman. She’s also extremely intelligent and gracious.

Well, That’s Interesting… Samhain Edition

This morning we got the first taste of Mueller’s fire. The Manafort indictment was no surprise, his partner Rick Gates, a little off the radar, but as someone who still has regular contact with team Trump (Pro-Russian Lobbyist Is Lurking Around the White House) and Manafort’s right-hand man, really no surprise. Papadopoulos, though, this one is the big news. He’s obviously flipped to the government witness side of the equation.

America Is Doomed

America is doomed, and watching this is torturous and exhausting. Every day is a new Trumpian rabbit hole of toxic tomfoolery.  But Trump is just a symptom of the illness. Getting rid of the symptom is not a cure. It will get worse. Much worse.

What is the root cause of this madness? Why can’t we have a relatively sane, functional government? Why is it so difficult? As a nation we have a lot of serious problems to address, but really, in all honesty, which of these problems is unsolvable? Take any one of them. Take the debt; take climate change and environmental issues; take campaign finance laws; take racial inequality and tension; take any goddamn issue that we now face– None of them are beyond our ability to solve, so what’s stopping us from solving them?

The Fascists Target LGBT For Radical Scapegoating Globally

It’s just what they do now.

Fascists can, and do, target other minority groups for abuse, but, generally, that has to be done more quietly– more ‘dog-whistley’– because of all those historical red flags. If you’re explicit with your racism or antisemitism there will be some push-back from, what passes for, the moderate Right– less and less in the age of Trump– but whoever is still left pretending to be a decent human-being on the Right, they will have to come out against you, because, you know, the whole slavery, blatantly racist past, and the holocaust, and…

It’s Worker’s Party Celebration and Columbus Day!

Senator Corker is getting a lot of press for calling out Dear Leader Trump. It seems that Corker, who is Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has had an epiphany since the campaign– He’s recently realized that Trump could, you know, kill us all. It’s nice that he’s had that realization and good that he has the courage to buck his party’s president and all… only this burst of insight and bravery would have been way more helpful BEFORE THE GODDAMN ELECTION.
