The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

Disgracing the Nation

We had a nice vacation with Trump – the #Pumpkingropenfuhrer – out of the country.

Now he’s back, damn it.

We have a vacuous celebrity of a Thief-in-Chief who leaves you-name-it to his crooked son-in-law to study up on, handle, and otherwise deal with anything and everything that comes up.

Trump is a guy with […]

Whiny, Fascist Tattle-Tale Politician Assails a Citizen’s 1st Amendment Right

The letter that appears in this blog post, along with its post-script – an illegal post-script – ought to be filed under U.S. News, NOT Politics, due to its blatant breach of the oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. It was sent by U.S. Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ, pleading to Lakeland Bank for donations. In […]

The GOP Refuses to Hear the People

Last night, I saw a video online that expresses a symptom of the decline of democracy.

It is disturbing on a level that I think most people will miss at first, because they will get caught up in the emotion of the individuals concerned, so I’m going to describe it, because this other, deeper, underlying […]

Populism is the Enemy – NOT Population Studies

Well, at last, after weeks on end of watching populism rear its hideous hydra of a head, a voice from the population scientists has been heard.

Bill Nye – the Science Guy – took on the question of reproduction in developed nations.

He said that, considering the fact that our resource use is far tougher […]

Eating Cake While Dropping Bombs…

Trump loves to put on a show. Dinner and a show. Dessert and a show.

Herr #Pumpkingropenfuehrer isn’t happy unless he’s showing off.

Now that he holds the codes to every war toy the U.S. military possesses, he’s playing with them, and doing it while entertaining foreign leaders.

He bragged that his latest guest, China’s […]

Meet Julia, the Muppet with Autism. Trump and the GOP Want to Defund Her.

Meet Julia, the Muppet with autism, who has just joined the cast of Sesame Street – she’s the redhead with the toy bunny. Neurotypical kids will learn how to interact with kids on the autism spectrum, and be taught to accept us.

Julia, the Muppet with autism, holding her toy bunny, debuts on PBS. […]

The Raving Mad Tomato of InfoWars Explodes…Again

Alex Jones of InfoWars, that raving mad Texan with a radio show who shrieks nonsense, is Donald J. Trump’s favorite news source (or one of them, anyway).

No chance that the #Pumpkingropenfuehrer will call this Exploding Tomato of Idiocy and Vitriol fake news! The Thief-in-Chief swallows everything that Jones says, hook, line, and sinker.

Sigh.

[…]

The Chinese Built a Wall. The Mongols Still Got In. Think About That.

I guess you just can’t fix stupid, thoughtless, or unreasonable.

Still, the urge to try is irresistible, and the need to educate remains.

Donald J. Trump wants to build a wall, charge up the cost for the materials, labor, and deaths on the job to the American people, and then bill the Mexicans for it. […]

Algorithms, Suppression of Opposition Speech, and Psy-Ops.

As I write this, the Oscars are on. Why not? They’re fun.

I still want to see Hidden Figures, and I hope it wins big, because I’m such a sucker for all things outer space and feminist. My law thesis was on outer space law – but that’s another story, and also a fun one.
