Political discourse.

A marginal but noteworthy figure in the history of American popular music passed on.  Charles Manson.  My condolences to the family. He has a rough start in life.  The Depression era son of a single teenage mom who, when he was five, was sent off to a five year prison term.  After chafing against strict […]

If we compare Doug Jones’s victory over Roy Moore in Alabama leading to a big Democratic year of 2018 with the Scott Brown victory over Martha Coakley in Massachusetts leading to a big Republican year of 2010… … and one accidental Senator who’ll be ousted at their next election… The Comparisons

Stuck on the nature of Donald Trump’s twitter insult at Senator Kristen Gillibrand. someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them) I suppose “would do anything for them” is an allusion to prostitution.  Gendered, perhap

So.  Ted Leo has a thing or two to say about William Weld. The Hanged Man was written too early to be a response to Trump’s America, but one late addition, “William Weld In The 21st Century,” a poisoned ode to Gary Johnson’s running mate, tackles one of Leo’s biggest gripes. “Look, William Weld seems […]

Damned the Young Adult death books.  Too bad we can’t go to the old days… herethere. When Alabamans deride Democrats. Jimmy Kimmel trolls Roy Moore. Kind of the Bizarro Clinton effect, where Monica-gate cleared out a bunch of Republican transgressers, and loses some sense of proportions, a political party shoot

So, great debate.  Great Controversy.  The controversial and divisive Pope Francis has waded in with a suggestion. In an interview with an Italian TV network, the pontiff said that the current language of the Our Father prayer “is not a good translation.” In English and similarly in Italian, the prayer asks Go

Apparently, the Republicans have enough governorships that they can, if they desire, call a Constitutional Convention to pass whatever it is they want.  (This after West Virginia’s governor made a switch in parties — Jim Justice — or, a return to his former party.  He, like Winston Churchill and Arlen Sp

Elements of frustration, and a feeling of the same “out of step, don’t quite grasp some dynamics at work” that I experienced in reading, oh, In These Times on how what we need now is just to patch together the various social justice causes (The Fight for 15 and Black Lives Matter and …) and… [&

I see the novelty Christmas gift being sold… Justin Trudeau scented candles.  It’s a joke — every Trump hater loves the Canadian prime minister, the man ousted the last Conservative government off a policy plank they only wish a Democratic President would pursue and adopt… … reminding one that

Penn Jilette on the ironies of Brandies University’s stomping of a Lenny Bruce play. Louis C K and his future. Roy Moore:  Alabama’s tough decision. … Doug Jones tries. … Why Roy Moore had to “look elsewhere”… The politics of the “b” word  (Bigot!). The Beach Boys

Yeah, the second allegation — Al Franken grabs woman (Minnesota state legislator) in the ass — throws my  forgiving of his USO tour shenanigans — into the dumpster, and now there’s something troubling.  Perhaps not Charlie Rose troubling… yet. What I’m struck by with this act of transgr

Did you know that before 1992 when a lot of this was going on that Judge Moore was a Democrat? You didn’t know that? How about all these people now saying, ‘Oh, yeah, yeah, everybody here knew about Judge Moore. Oh-ho-ho, yeah, good old boy we’ve known about Judge Moore for a long time.’ While [̷

Chloe Eudaly takes on media on twitter and facebook.  Gets compared to Trump. 5 words you can’t say in school. Female guards sue Male inmates for exhibitionist-ically masturbating. Would senate Democrats vote to expel Roy Moore?  Strange question trying to come to pre-ordained “They want him there” concl

So.  I’m curious to figure out what it is, what the rationale is, what reasoning the military of Zimbabwe has for declaring their deposition of Mugabe a… “not coup”. It’s in the details of the situation, I suppose.  When you arrest the leader, and the goal and outcome is to bypass his success

The Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I’ve EVER faced! We are are in the midst of a spiritual battle with those who want to silence our message. So Roy Moore tweets.  He can’t decide if the enemy is Obama or Clinton. And then […

All right.  Time to figure out what’s going on in the, quote in quote, “Culture War”… The ACLU is defending the right to editorialize Taylor Swift as speaking for the “lower case kkk“, when one points to her fanbase in the, quote in quote “alt right”. The alt right, of course

Silvio Berlusconi, (Italy’s Donald Trump, if you must) set for political comeback. How Seattle’s light rail project went $500 million over budget.

Chuck Klosterman has an interesting opinion in this book about traveling to find popular musical death sites, as he travels the highways for blues legend Robert Johnson and his observation on listening to something that his rock critic predecessor, Lester Bangs as he momentarily became sick of rock in the wake of Altamont ,

Hey!  Tuesday’s election day in America! And a chance to read the tea leaves. Or… not. Two gubernatorial races.  New Jersey, where eight years ago Chris Christie was heralded as up and coming, having taken out a corruptible Democratic incumbent.  He quickly established himself as one of the most popular gover

“The electoral history of the last seven or eight years is pretty abysmal. America’s oldest political party may go the way of the Federalists. It needs to reconnect with grass-roots supporters.” This is interesting.  Not necessarily the sentiment, which is expressed one way or the other about the two parties at v

There’s this noxious “truther” logic on this, which strikes me as a spurious maligning attack on M.F….

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  It is instructive to take a gander at the Daniel Estulin 2015 book covering the Tavickstock Institue, on the question of what portion of this book is simply replaying the works of the Lyndon Larouche Movement.  54.5 percent.  Therabouts.

The poll by the Levada Center asked a representative sample of 1,600 Russians to name the “top 10 most outstanding people of all time and all nations.” It also compiled a list of all 20 names that received more than 6 percent of the vote.

I see, in the wake of the tragedy in Los Vegas, a timeline of all mass shootings that resulted in at least 12 deaths.  And I’m scratching my head.  Twelve.  That’s an arbitrary number.  And it is maybe atonal to ask, or suggest — but… what?  Is there a giant spate of eleven deaths that […]
