MEMBERS ONLY: The Hilarious, Depressing Republican Survey Confirming The Idiocy Of Their Voters

Posted in Members Only

If you’ve watched your paycheck diminish, education costs go up, and your health care costs spiral out of control, most rational people would probably think about not voting for Republicans. Why? Because Americans have been subjected to right wing economics for almost four decades now, and with very, very little to show for it.  Unfortunately, most self identified Republicans do not seem to be able to grasp this, believing instead that...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Collapsing Hope Of White America

Posted in Members Only

As a white man, I don’t take any particular pleasure in writing about how much white people, especially white men, in America suck. We’re racist. We’re greedy. We’re unbelievably self-centered. We’re violent. And above all, despite our insistence that we are the greatest thing to ever exist, we are as fragile as spun glass. This doesn’t apply to all of us, of course. People exist on a spectrum. I’m...

MEMBERS ONLY: Trump Is Mentally Disintegrating By The Day

Posted in Members Only, Politics

It was just over a week ago when we received further confirmation of Donald Trump’s total lack of mental fitness for the presidency. We didn’t necessarily require confirmation since we’ve all witnessed it firsthand, but there it was anyway in horrifyingly reliable detail.  First, we heard from Bob Woodward’s new book an entire series of harrowing stories detailing how Trump’s White House is “Crazytown,” including one particular story illustrating...

Members Only: The Horrifying Panel Of “Normal” Trump Supporters

Posted in Members Only, Politics

In what seemed like an effort to present some Trump supporters as normal, concerned Americans interested in the welfare of their country, CNN hosted a Q and A with six women who voted for the president in the last election. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota spoke to them in order to find out how they will be voting in the midterms and asked them how they rated his performance thus far. The...

MEMBERS ONLY: Brett Kavanaugh And The Ridiculous ‘Nice Guy’ Test

Posted in Members Only, Politics

This weekend, Stanford Professor Christine Blasey Ford revealed that at 15, she was sexually assaulted by a then-17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, who held her down and covered her mouth when she tried to scream. If there was ever a moment to end this farce of a hearing and yank his nomination, this would be it. However, the Republicans are shameless in their need to control the highest court in the land,...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Case for Open War Against the Republican Party

Posted in Members Only, Politics

The Republican Party has got to go. Period. Anyone still interested in little things like freedom or justice or even being allowed the luxury of ignoring politics have to vote Republicans out of office at every level of government. Nothing else matters now except removing them from power and banishing them from the public square. If you’re wondering just how dangerous the GOP has become, consider the words of...

MEMBERS ONLY: Serena Williams And The History Of Double Standards

Posted in Members Only, Sports

In 1772, Phillis Wheatley was tried in the city of Boston for writing poetry. It wasn’t the content of her poems that they objected to; it was the fact that she was a black woman, and a slave (since the North had not yet abolished slavery). The white men who tried her were baffled that a slave with no formal schooling was knowledgeable enough to use words like “redemption,”...
