The Trolls Are Already Running Amok Over Hillary Clinton

I have a Facebook politician page left over from my campaign for Milwaukee School Board back on 2011. It’s been a quiet backwater since then…a place to repost my Blogging Blue efforts and articles of interest around politics, foreign policy, economy, education, etc. The sort of stuff I rant about around here.

Recently I posted […]

The Coming of The Antichrist, etcetera.

Watch as nutjob Baptist Pastor Steven Anderson ( who has recently suggested that killing all gay people would produce an AIDS free Christmas ) pitches his new film about, well, whatever it’s about. My favorite part comes at roughly the 45 second mark when the Sinister Minister explains how the film will cover everything from […]

” Hammerin’ Hank ” knocks another one out of the park

Home run king Hank Aaron ( sorry Barry Bonds, but Hank will always be my home run king ) came under fire recently for saying that racism is alive and well in America. At an event marking the 40th anniversary of his record breaking 715th home run Aaron told USA Today, in apparent reference to […]

Understanding Brian Sikma

Before the Wisconsin State Journal could get the story out about the DNR report warning of the health and water quality hazards of an open pit iron mine in the Penokee Hills of northern Wisconsin, Media Trackers was all over it, publishing a piece about how the DNR report was flawed and biased.

Ginni Thomas

Virginia “Ginni” Thomas is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Critics have called out her activism as a potential conflict of interest with her husband’s judicial duties since 2000 – while working for the Heritage Foundation, she collected resumes for […]

And Proof That Senator Ted Cruz Still Don’t Get It!

Here is the press release on Senator Cruz’s website…highlighting his speech on the Senate floor before the vote on the debt ceiling and continuing resolution bill:

“I rise today in opposition to the deal that the Senate is getting ready to vote on. This is a terrible deal. This deal embodies everything about the […]

Perspectives on Race and the Shutdown

Sorry this is four days into the posting – Imara Jones at Colorlines published a fair rundown on why shutting down the government impacts people of color disproportionately. I think it’s an important read.

Why Race Matters in the Government Shutdown – COLORLINES

As the parts of the government affected by the shutdown disproportionately impact […]

Generation Opportunity: Unhinged and Bizarre

 

Sid Vicious was kind of unhinged and bizarre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sid Dithers was king of unhinged and bizarre.

 

But the Koch-Head, Acid Trip, Astro-turfing Aristocracy front grouping as “Generation Opportunity” really takes the bizarre and unhinged to new and unseen heights. Welcome to the […]

National Politics: Sugar Sugar and the Honeyed Gall

 

Sugar Sugar: Sugar Daddy’s Sugar Coating, Sugar Pipes… this post is all about sugar: the cloying and the sickeningly sweet that makes a fine icing over our national politics.

First up for the sugar fix – a bona fide whistle blowing mindblower that exposes the viciously arcane – where the true threat of secrecy […]
