“Democrat” Shri Thanedar’s claim that it was the bank that abused all those beagles and monkeys turns out to be a lie

After revelations came to light that animals used for laboratory testing were abandoned when his testing lab was repossessed by the bank, “Democratic” gubernatorial candidate Shri Thanedar told anyone who would listen that he tried to save those poor tortured animals but that it was the bank that left them there to suffer without food and water. Turns out, that […]

Investing in education starts with investing in our OWN education

Investing in education starts with investing in our OWN education

This is my 5,199th post at Eclectablog. That’s an astonishing sentence to me but it’s true.

Trump’s dismantling of the EPA continues apace, Scott Pruitt ready to outlaw critical science in the name of “transparency”

After eight years of an anti-science Bush administration, science got a bit of a boost with the election of Barack Obama. Political cartoonist Tom Toles from The Washington Post commemorated the event with this spot-on comic: However, Republicans continued to push their anti-science ways, working to thwart the Obama administration’s efforts to combat climate change at every turn.

Michigan high school punk flies the racist flag of American traitors because his fee-fees got hurt

Poor li’l Cameron Myers. He’s an 18-year old white “country boy” from rural Auburn, Michigan. Seems this pathetic little punk got his fee-fees hurt when somebody stole the racist Confederate flag off the back of his truck in the school parking lot. When he whined about it to school administrators, they didn’t do anything about it. He called it an […]

What do you do when it all seems like too much to process? Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr knows.

What do you do when it all seems like too much to process? Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr knows.

At the end of January and again at the beginning of February, I spent ten days in the hospital. I took a bit of a break from my normal hyper-consumption of political news and, when I dipped my toe back in, I found that the fire hose of cacophony that I had been drinking from before my illness had only […]

I don’t want to hear about how outraged you are by the latest mass school shooting

I don’t want to hear about how outraged you are by the latest mass school shooting

Before I get started today, I’d like to thank our loyal readers for their patience as I have worked through a rather extended saga of diverticulitis. It started in late January and involved two stays in the hospital as well as an outpatient surgical procedure. It also featured me having a nearly-lethal anaphylactic allergic reaction after the installation of a […]

MSU must answer for putting money & celebrity over the safety of ALL of its students, not only victims of serial rapist Larry Nassar

MSU must answer for putting money & celebrity over the safety of ALL of its students, not only victims of serial rapist Larry Nassar

It doesn’t take much digging to understand why top officials at Michigan State University seem to be so willfully ignorant of the sexual violence being perpetrated against its students. All you have to do is look at the rhetoric coming from its Board of Trustees and a major donor. Joel Ferguson, the Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees made […]

UPDATED: Nassar goes to prison for life but MSU still to be held accountable for their role in the rape of over 150 girls

Over the past week, 159 women gave victim impact statements during the sentencing hearing of the notorious serial rapist, Larry Nassar.

He did this when most of them were young […]
