I Live In Anger

  I live in Anger. It is not only impossible, but absolutely maddening to talk to the “thoughts and prayers” only people who think any gun reform is a slippery slope to full disarmament, and besides, people are going to break the law anyway so why do anything at all? No serious person is talking

Crimes Against Humanity in Puerto Rico

A set of independent reports on the ground from the worst Caribbean disaster since Haiti and Montserrat continue to reflect a situation worsening in the face of what can only be intentional “ignorance” (as in deliberately being ignored and/or blown off) is pronounced a “good news story” -in the face of factual contradiction- by the very little-Don pretender administration

Robert Mueller’s August Surprise

In a stunning development, investigators for Special Counsel Robert Mueller have joined forces with those of New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in the Paul Manafort probe. The announcement comes just days after Donald Trump’s pardoning of former sheriff Joe Arpaio, and, unless you believe in coincidences, the intent could not be clearer: state convictions,

And it’s the other-side-ness I’m talking about when I say we are unhinged. Unhinged. We’ve always taken sides in political arguments, right from Day One, but the two sides used to

Enough Already!

Let’s stop pretending to be shocked, because none of us should be. Face it, if you’re still shocked at the conduct of this president, I don’t know what else I can say. And let’s stop pretending that this is all just the meanderings of someone who is “new” to politics, as if that makes a

Semantics

Let’s assume your boss calls you into their office, tells you to close the door and sit down. If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, shit, what’d I do now?” But let’s leave my insecurity out of it for now, shall we? Your boss hands you a piece a paper with a name and
