Political discourse.

I’m against this new Major League Baseball rule change. Le Pen poised for victory, winning over female French Trump admirers. 10 Senate seats wavering about in 2018. Proceed in the comments for varying political ramifications on that “.6 percent of the population” (transgendered). Why The Trumps ended up i

Bill Maher does some victory lap in bringing on Milo Yiannopoulos, though he’s largely denounced for mainstreaming him by having him on his program.  (I note the cartoon in an alt weekly which has Bill Maher slapping Milo’s hand and saying “You Go Bro!”)  The theory lies in the “sunlight expo

I like the libertarian magazine Reason’s claim right about here.  “Of course, Libertarians are leading the fight against Trump“. To be sure, this is a look over at a British publication and a slight lack of nuance on American politics — And to be sure, the “Great Libertarian” or libertar

Saw the piece of sticker slogan. “Pizza Gate is Real”. Is this a medium for fake news? Is this sincere or ironic? If the former, does it do more harm to the cause than good?  If latter, does it do more good to the cause than harm?

I remember early in the Obama Administration, sitting through conservative punditry that took it as a given that the whole Obama Administration is failing, that the news media failed to “vet” him and now we have — a complete nincompoop and disaster.  It was something where the very act of proposing polici

What did Flynn do and when did he do it? Playboy brings back Nudity. PCing that book you’re reading. Kurt Nimmo breaks with Alex Jones on Trump. What?  No Jeff Gannon?

“Liberals are fond of that famous quote from Voltaire.  ‘I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.’  Now the thing is… your anti-fascists… don’t really buy into that one.” So heard on flicking briefly across the radio dial… had to be

One observation as what is considered the “Left” moves about in copying the “playbook” of the “Tea Party Right” as at the dawn of the Trump Administration as at the dawn of the Obama Administration. And as we see some of the same basic tropes — some disruptions at town halls, Republ

“For me, being a 49ers fan, Joe Montana will always be the greatest.  But I’d definitely put Tom Brady in the top 2 or 3.” Granted, it is the case that if someone comes around and wins ten superbowls straight for some other team not the Patriots, someone will be saying “For me, being a […]

Americans Now Evenly Divided on Impeaching Trump. Oh, the poll is probably something that in terms of elections and campaigns is better is Democratic years than Republican years. It is worth pondering the current stark division on Capital Hill.  Jeff Sessions in by party-line vote, more or less — Joe Manchin was the

Trying to maneuver through the meaning of the Superbowl ads, I have this thought — as I watched a handful of games at the end of the season and a smattering of the playoffs… … and only the last quarter and overtime of the Super Big Game… The ad for the NFL was a groaner.  […]

Thoughts as I’m watching Ellen DeGeneres make a political point with use of the movie Finding Dory,  and asked the question.   Shall I take political cues from the didactic teachings of children’s entertainment?  Or, plenty of items floating out there whose “message”, if you pair it down to such,

The creators of Bane, love Trump and think he’d make a good villian for Batman. oh, sure. We are witnessing a distorted vision of what the late Samuel Huntington called the “creedal passion period” of American politics. No, you shouldn’t punch a neo-nazi in the face. That damned libertarian island has high h

A business location next to a Starbucks that had been the subject of a bat against the windows the days after Trump’s election (and, I believe, it too received some collateral damage) had a bunch of peace signs, and diversity slogans, all — as the poster stated, “created by local elementary slogans.”

The front page headlines blaring out from Trump’s inauguration speech… and what the first quote off the script is… ranges from the “This is Your Day”, the oddly ahistorical (or perfectly historical?) “America First” pledge appears to be the topper, I suppose it’s Trump’s

One line of Strategy from the “Trump Resistance” that is stupid, dishonest, and will not be all that successful. If you’re an internet troll, you can help, too—by using your formerly evil powers to influence Trump supporters. Maybe get a fake Twitter account, pretend you’re a booster for Trump, and sow see

The case against the big soda food-stamp scare. Tammy Baldwin goes to war against Soy Milk.  It’s what politicos from Wisconsin do. A Putin Press conference. In defense of making jokes about probably not news. “Golden Showers” and Trump. “But what about Edward Snowden???” Vanilla Ice Cream: ne

“Thank God for Meryl Streep.  Because she’s stopping the coming nuclear war from happening.” I think the logic here is that Trump’s attention wanders to tweeting against the latest Hollywood celebrity commenting against him is stopping him from other acts. Sure enough, we get the “OVER-RATED&#

Back in the early 1990s, I remember this issue of Boys’ Life that included an article — I think it was part of a series — by Issac Asimov which posited future innovations in technology.  This was a device that we’re now on the cusp of — the driver-less car. The article in question posited [
