Joe Biden quietly has the best plan to take on income inequality since the New Deal

Joe Biden quietly has the best plan to take on income inequality since the New Deal

The question is… why so quiet? There was a bit of a justifiable freakout this week when Ted Kaufman, the long-time Biden aide who is running Joe Biden’s transition team, was reported as saying, “When we get in, the pantry is going to be bare.” This sounds a lot like the kowtowing to phony deficit whining that plagued Democrats during […]

Betsy DeVos Isn’t Serious About Reopening Schools: Here’s How We Know

You know how I know that the corporate education reformers, and their leader, Betsy DeVos, were never serious about actually improving public education? Because now, in the midst of a global pandemic, and a complete lack of national education policy guidance beyond “SCHOOLS MUST OPEN IN THE FALL!!!“, none of these education policy “experts” have come up with any “out […]

Dilbert’s Scott Adams is the prototypical Trump fan

Rich, whiny, with an unconscionable grudge against women and minorities Imagine after staking out a very successful career peddling flabby, relatable office humor that mocks unearned arrogance and managerial incompetence, you make the discovery of a lifetime. You — a trained hypnotist and heretofore unacknowledged Master Persuader — have spotted a gifted manipulator whose Persuasion skills may even exceed your […]

Thomas Bryant Cotton, aka Tom Cotton, is a Republican U.S. Senator from Arkansas.

Tom Cotton’s “Send in the Military”…Don’t Worry, They’re Here.

It’s difficult to overestimate how truly awful Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed in the NY Times yesterday was, but here’s the bit that made me stop reading and my mouth hang wide open… “One thing above all else will restore order to our streets: an overwhelming show of force to disperse, detain and ultimately deter lawbreakers.” This is the sort of […]

Why “Closet Conservatives” are Dangerous, and How to Spot Them

Anyone else starting to think that it’s the “closet conservatives” that pose the most danger during our current constitutional and health crises? With the “out” Trump supporters, for example, you can see them coming from a mile away. Confederate flags waving, no face masks, stupid, misspelled signs, support for the border wall, and hatred for women and minorities–it’s all on […]

The stock market wants to make sure Republicans get their greater depression

By ignoring the horrors of Covid-19, Wall Street will guarantee no real relief for workers before or after the election In his latest essential thread, Andy Slavitt — who you know ran Obamacare, Medicare and Medicaid under President Obama — nails a point I’ve been trying to get at all week: Trump — and thus, the entire Republican Party — […]

40,000 Americans could be alive if Trump had followed South Korea’s lead

What do we have to lose? 40,000 lives, apparently Assigning fault for a public health disaster is easy… if you’re Donald Trump. In 2014, a doctor infected with Ebola while treating patients in Africa was allowed to return to the US, Trump demanded that the 44th president resign. Two Americans died of Ebola. Trump called the Obama/Biden approach to the […]

The Betsy DeVos connection to the protests against Covid-19 precautions in Michigan

Another billionaire-approved ‘movement’ is pushing for massive human sacrifice in order to save Trump’s presidency On April 15, Michigan reported 1,058 new cases of COVID-19 and 153 new deaths. That put the total number of Michiganders who had tested positive for the novel Coronaivirus 28,059 and the number confirmed dead from the virus at 1,921. And this is how some […]

The GOP wants to steal the November election — and they’ll restart the COVID-19 pandemic to do it

The GOP wants to steal the November election — and they’ll restart the COVID-19 pandemic to do it

And here’s the plan Democrats must embrace to stop them Even if no one dies from the GOP unnecessarily sending Wisconsinites to the polls on Tuesday, it was still a crime against humanity. It was a crime that targeted not only the black and poor voters likely to vote Democratic and the poll workers risking their lives but also, to […]

Trump is weaponizing a global pandemic to win re-election

He isn’t just punishing Democratic governors, he’s setting himself up to be ‘the savior’ The events of the past week have me torn between conflicting emotions in a number of ways. Our very own @LOLGOP and his wife welcomed their new baby Winnie into their lives and home after a long a difficult path to parenthood which Jason wrote about […]
