These aren't people, they're animals.

With whom do you think this kind of talk resonates? Sarah Huckabee Sanders, perhaps?

How about your ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill, working class, Christian white folks....

Close Encounters of the Racist Kind

...And when they do come, treat them like you treat black people and other people of color. ...

If they're benign, they'll leave the same way they came as quickly as possible. Why on earth would they want to stay? 

If they're belligerent, you're fucked.

And,  you'll find out what…

Research & Development: Question for a Monday

Big pharmaceuticals and big oil spend big money on R & D.

It has been surmised, and the subject of a good deal of speculation, that when discoveires that can alter economies globally and lives individually, the respective formulas are shelved and kept from the public in order to maintain profits on current products and maximize profits on products to be, made available to the public in the future....

What do you think big oil and big pharma would do with discoveries that…

Slipping Into Darkness...

You know you're Slipping into darkness when;

You spend 45 minutes looking for the car keys that were in your hand all the while;

You call the police to report that your car was stolen, when the fact is you parked it on the other side of the mall;

When you finish drinking the orange juice, you put the carton in the sink and the empty glass into the refrigerator;

When you go to the grocery store and can't remember what you are there to get;

When you can't…

Following the Money with Rachel Maddow

A while back I said that the payment of $130,000.00 to Stormy Daniels was the kind of loose thread that, if picked at and pulled on long enough, could cause Trump's entire web of high international finance, money laundering, and Russian intrigue to unravel and expose the whole sordid affair for what it is, an illegal and unethical conspiratorial criminal enterprise:…

An LBJ Question for the Mid-term elections

President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

Was LBJ right about this?

Are There Any Questions?

Throughout my life I've vexed and perplexed myself with questions and inquiries that may seem to  many like little more than mental exercises or intellectual gymnastics.

From time to time I tease myself with questions that seem to have no answers, responses, or resolutions. Curiosity can be that way, and can come in many forms. 

What, where, when, who and why all begin with the same phonetic combination, "wh". Is there something to this digraph (not diphthong), or is it a mere…

The Trump Strategy: Attack, Attack, Attack!!!

"In 1973, a brash young would-be developer from Queens met one of New York’s premier power brokers: Roy Cohn, whose name is still synonymous with the rise of McCarthyism and its dark political arts. With the ruthless attorney as a guide, Trump propelled himself into the city’s power circles and learned…

Sarah Huckabee Sanders performs as "Minister of Disinformation" as 'journalists' fail to catch and call her out.

The narrator here doesn't have it quite right. At 7:40 into the video of the press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders refers to the 7AM seizure of medical records and pictures of Trump on the wall, as "the standard operating procedure of the White House Medical Unit":…
