Pedestrian Politics

It’s a question of the GOP and their testicles.

If the GOP establishment could find one brain cell and one gonad among themselves, this woman would be the party poster child by tomorrow. The party tends to miss so many opportunities. I an effort to appear clever and sophisticated they usually end up as neither and miss the down-to-earth goldmines all around them. Kim […]

Mask Hysteria: Moving the Goal Posts

It would be swell if the politicians would stop moving the goal posts.  But they can’t.  They haven’t gotten Trump out of office yet.  And Congress keeps announcing more and more money is to be doled out.  So, too bad for you.  We need to keep everything screwed up at least through November. Part 7 […]

Mask Hysteria: Celebrity Trumps Science

In the previous segment we were getting into the mask, celebrity and more phony “science”. Part 6 Then you have people who wear a mask the way my brother (a medical professional) does.  They wear them loose or under the nose. The masks are constantly falling down. So the wearer is constantly fidgeting with the […]

Mask Hysteria: The New Burka

Read Part 4 here. I was hinting that there might be some comfort and encouragement in the realities of COVID-19. Part 5 But, no! You are not to be permitted comfort. If anyone within 100 miles has COVID you must live like a neurotic germaphobe. We must create the same or greater level of distress […]

Mask Hysteria: Politicians and Moral Hazard

Read Part 3 here Moral Hazard is where you incentivize people with the means to do the wrong thing with the rewards for doing it. Politic1ans will always choose the easier, less moral path.  That’s what I meant by politics and money earlier. Bigger COVID numbers mean more money and a chance to beat up […]

Mask Hysteria: Why the “science” is invalid.

I was just getting to why the “science” is invalid.  It’s about methods.  If the methods are not valid, there is NO SCIENCE. Part 3 All the government intrusion, the destruction of the economy, the endless propaganda, has been based on “science”. Really? The numbers cited to justify all this are totally invalid. I didn’t […]

Mask Hysteria: Everything You’ve Been Told Is Invalid! (In many parts)

Part 1 Whenever someone questions the infallible wisdom of masks and shutdowns the speaker is inevitably accused of not following the science or being (get this) selfish. Here’s the painful truth: Since Trump first spoke of containment (and Pelosi was still telling everyone to party in Chinatown and De Blasio was still telling everyone to […]

Irrational Panic

“Irrational Panic” is actually an older article.  I have been wrestling with my website for a few days. How do you create irrational panic? Simple. You employ irrational propaganda. I’ll begin with a statement that will be most ignored. I know COVID-19 is a real illness and that for some people it can be deadly. […]

Why the Swedes are doing better than we are?

Because of a fully indoctrinated mindset, many knuckleheads will respond to this article by saying, “You just want people to DIE!” Ironically, it is probably these very same people who need to take what I say for action. Question 1: How is Sweden doing these days vis-a-vis the ChiComm virus? Answer: Quite well, actually. They […]

Are We at WAR? Then Develop Some COURAGE!

How in the name of all that’s holy (if you go in for that sort of thing) did we become the people we now are?  We’ve become so gullible, malleable.  How does a people win a war when these are the qualities of the soldier? The Fronts In this war there are  5 basic fronts.  […]

Are we at War? Then FIGHT!

In his inaugural address, FDR bellowed the phrase, “…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself!” Viewed critically, it was a nonsensical utterance. But everyone knew what he meant so it went over well. And there was validity in the point.  Sadly, Roosevelt would spent the next 9 years exploiting that same fear […]

Critical Thought at a Critical Time

I am going to beg you to think critically for just a few minutes here. Of course, that is the goal every time a political writer toils, but on this subject critical thought has been missing across the board for two months. One of the most socially crippling aspects of the COVID-19 fiasco has been […]

Caveats for the NOW…and the Chinese Crud.

They say if you live long enough you get to see everything. Well, this Xi TB event has brought about some really mind-blowing revelations about just how stupid people can be. I’m not talking about you [looking askance]. You’re here with me right now so you are brilliant. But just in case you might be […]

Rocky VIII: An Economic Metaphor Part 2

Please support our sponsors: Update: 11/7/19  The tariff circus drags on.  China continues to play the US like a fiddle.  With every “deadline” China simply makes obviously empty promises and gets the date to slide further right.  Today we hear we have a the framework on terms to be negotiated and a venue.  And we […]

Rocky VIII: An Economic Metaphor Part 1

8/14/19 It is 1:14 PM. The Dow is off 722 points after an already crappy previous week. You’ve missed me haven’t you? I have been away too long. I have been toiling away in the shop making furniture and trinkets. I do that to get away from the moronspeak[1] that is American politics. And there […]

Quick Hits

Muddled Interpretaions In my upcoming book, I talk about political imagery and how it acts upon the political ignorance of too many of our voters.  But the ignorance is not limited to voters. Some supposedly smart people have a real hard time getting it. This morning Stuart Varney, fairly well respected, counted Robert Francis O’Rourke […]

Part 3: I Am Throwing My Hands Into the Air. The Imperial Trump

  What did I tell you? What the HELL did I tell you? This is part 3 in my discussion about our acceptance of extra-constitutional bullshit and how we think it’s okay when our guy does it. The Imperial Trump is not a good thing, no more than the Imperial BHO. In part 2 I […]

Trump’s Potential Fatal Errors Part 2: Martial law

In part 2, I am going to veer from talk of deficits and crash into the border wall. I will tie it all up in part 3. Well, it’s this or martial law. I said last time that the Trump administration could pose a much greater danger to our country long term, than anything this […]

Trump’s Potential Fatal Errors: Not for Him, But the Country. Pt. 1

I would submit, and history does insist, that the placing of tariffs are more likely to be the catalyst of unrest and even war.

Don’t Be A Political Pansy…on Election Day.

The tag line I use to promote my book is “Don’t be a Political Pansy!” That is tongue-in-cheek advertising, and as much a joke as it is a challenge. But there really is a breed of political pansy out there. I normally serve up red meat on this site. There is so much we can […]
