Bipartisan Indignation Gives Way To GOP Demagoguery

Posted on 13. May, 2013 by in Current Events, Politics

It is a rare state of affairs when you find the sane people of the United States agreeing with the Republican reactionary establishment on any point, but it is difficult (or at least politically inexpedient) to come out on the side of censorship in the United States. On Friday officials at the IRS admitted that, […]

Chicago Outfit Alive And Well In Illinois Politics

The Outfit has been a dominant force in Chicago for nearly 100-years, and, despite a scorched earth campaign waged against them by the federal government over the last several decades, these princes of crime are still alive and well. This is because the Outfit has evolved. The days of well-dressed thugs standing on the corner […]

This has been a major final quarter of the year for sanity. First President Barack Obama soundly trounced his backwards, flip-flopping corporate raider opponent Mitt Romney, and has taken this mandate to the next level by refusing to extend tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans at the cost of the 99%. Then, in a move […]

The GOP “Is Full Of Racists”

The Republican Party “is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of… (that) party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, […]

The Systematic Federal FOIA Failure

As if we needed another reason to turn the president out of office, Bloomberg News recently released an internal analysis of the Obama administration’s criminally (both in the figurative and literal sense) deficient adherence to federal law. In the wake of endless federal spending scandals and government investment snafus plaguing these last few years, one […]

The Clinton Catastrophe

Obama must be getting smarter in his old age. Recently he agreed with a statement floating around on Twitter that Bill Clinton should be his “Secretary of Explaining Things.” Lately everyone seems to be gobbling up Clinton’s particular brand of bullshit, but that is nothing new. Obama could learn a thing or two about how politics is actually played from a man like Bill Clinton. He may be the most gifted politician of his generation… and I do not mean that as a compliment.

Theo’s Twit of the Week: Apple Inc.

This week’s Twit thinks a tort is a tasty crème-filled treat. In fact all of this week’s Twits are engaged in feloniously foolish and often cretinously craven lawsuits that, in some cases, are destroying people’s lives and even entire industries. Arbitration and fair competition are for losers, at least according to: Apple Inc. Apple Computer, […]

Paul Ryan’s Demise

Paul Ryan may have made the greatest mistake of his political career yesterday when he publically admitted to the crime of being stupid enough to jump on the Romney ticket. I’m not sure what he was promised, how much campaign money and/or political clout the RNC heavies offered him, but there is no way it […]

Railroaded Into Debt

California is nearly 400 billion dollars in debt. The lukewarm sense of hope following the contentious fight to wrap up the yearly state budget is tempered by the knowledge that the agreement requires the public to ok a referendum temporarily raising taxes by 8 billion dollars. Social services, health programs, the education system, the court […]

Check The Balances

Many of us are still in shock over the bizarre, bewildering and generally backwards ruling that came down from the Supreme Court on Thursday. In a decision that rivals Dred Scott for the scope of its stupidity, National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius will be one of those landmark rulings that future generations of […]
