Tom Cotton is not only a Trump supporter but an acolyte of the MAGA cult, aspiring to be High Priest. Trump was never going to be around more than eight years in any event, and now it looks like...
I live in Wilmington, NC. Nice beaches just a few minutes' drive away, warm weather, college town ambience in some areas. And lots and lots of racism, both overt and (barely) under the surface. And, like so many other cities,...
I expect just about any level of idiocy from Matt Gaetz (R-Beer Bong). He's the idiot who cribbed garbage conspiracy theories from Reddit for a House amendment calling for the prosecution of Hillary Clinton and James Comey. He's the lunatic...
It is a tragic, embarrassing, unnecessary part of American life.  You moderately well dressed, privileged 17 year old white kid like me gets his license, hops into the family car, and cruises around looking to pick up girls and...
Stephen Miller must be tearing out his remaining strands of hair and pounding on the walls. Trump's return to MAGA rallies was set to kick off with a night in Tulsa on June 19, Emancipation Day. The racist implications...
Everything I know about police, criminals, etc does not come from Law and Order -- which is actually a good thing, as it turns out. One thing I know from experience: most murders have a personal component. And it seems...

News of his resuming rallies, at a time when the COVID-19 crisis has by no means been...
The Sturmabteilung, or "brownshirts," were formed as the Nazi Party's first paramilitary group. They protected Nazi officials, including Adolf Hitler and Erich Rohm, fought with the paramilitary groups that opposed them, and intimidated Romani, trade unionists, and especially Jews. Donald Trump,...
The new Lincoln Project ad depicts the Confederate flag and makes the connection how the people who are all-in for Donald Trump display that flag. Hardly a coincidence. It will be interesting to see if Trump breaks out of...
My daughter is sick. Relax, she's not really sick. But what was the first thing that went through your head when you read that? I'm betting it was something along the lines of, "Oh, that poor guy!" There's nothing worse...
