My $0 Donation Message to Mr. Biden

If only “Democratic Unity” meant something to Progressives, like me, other than “My Way or the Highway.”

God Will Not Protect You

As inevitably happens when fact bites faith, fact wins. Always. If nothing fails like prayer, as Dan Barker amusingly points out, nothing bites like reality.

To “My Friend Ben”

To the Hon. Sen. Ben Cardin, Sir: It pains me to point out that the information you have emailed to your constituents is incomplete; some of it is plain wrong. Your statement that the CARES Act provides “direct payments of $1,200 per month to those with lower incomes” is incorrect: the $1200 is a one-time […]

The Necessity of Socialism

Imagine, if you will, an economic system in which 99% of the people make 50% of the money and 1% of the people own the other 50% of the money. Imagine further that the share of the 1% keeps increasing because they control so much of the economy that they can buy the legislators, subvert […]

Quick Comment: The Bloomberg Blues

I quote from The Guardian this morning: Sanders said last month he was “disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any other billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend tens of millions of dollars to buy our elections”. Warren has warned that elections should not be “for sale”. In response Bloomberg argued […]

Quick Comment: "Why the Democratic Party Is So Fed Up with Tulsi Gabbard"

“Why the Democratic Party Is So Fed Up with Tulsi Gabbard” My take on an 11/22/19 Yahoo News article— Pete Buttigieg did say he was willing to send our troops to Mexico to fight the cartels. Trump said much the same after some Mormon missionaries were murdered there. Only Mayor Pete had to walk back […]

Quick Comment: “Obamacare Is Working”

“Obamacare Is Working” “The uninsured rate has dropped from 19.3% before the ACA to 12.4% now.” My take on a 11/21/19 Yahoo News article... Number of uninsured + underinsured (that is, people with health insurance who can’t afford to use it): 87,000,000 (2018). Number of medical bankruptcies: 62.1% of all bankruptcies were caused by medical […]

Quick Comment: “Obama Warns Contenders About Leaning Too Far Left”

“Obama Warns Contenders About Leaning Too Far Left” My take on a 11/16/19 Yahoo News article... This is rich coming from a president who, in eight years, saw the loss of 1,000 Democratic seats at all levels of government. I suggest he (and Hillary Clinton) shut up. Mr. Obama's legacy is exactly why we got […]

The Problem with Joe Biden

I received a mailing (pictured here) from former Vice President Joe Biden. I admit, I live in a conservative voting district in Maryland, so it’s understandable that his appeal for donations was misdirected. I registered Independent three years ago, but I re-registered Democrat ahead of the 2016 Maryland primaries so that I could vote for […]

Bill Maher is a Republican

The supposed ‘left’ comedian is left behind I keep watching Bill Maher’s “Real Time” show on HBO, and have done so, Religulous-ly, almost since its inception in 2003. Although Maher was always irreverent toward religion, this was made crystal clear in his 2008 documentary, Religulous. I liked that about him, especially when he criticized the […]
