New GOP Poll Leader

This just in, some are comparing the Muslim question guy to Joe the Plumber. To be sure I did some checking with a pollster that specializes in GOP issues. the Scientific Polling Organization Of Feculence


Debate Liars

The GOP base are genetically predisposed to vote GOP, they cannot see liars due to cognitive dissonance. The ones that do know, don't care, they would be kicked out of the cult if they called out lies per Reagan's rule of never challenging the GOP notion that 2+2=5.

Why Libertarianism violates our property rights

A free market economy will not guarentee the ability of a nation to be economically independent so it can protect itself from other countries.

For example, because of free trade, the US no longer makes computers - they are mainly made in China. Thus, it is unlikely we could defend ourselves from China.

It was only because we had an auto industry during WWII that we were able to convert them to tank production. Airlines to bombers. It was only because we had a huge clothing and garment industry that we were able to make enough parachutes for our soldiers.

Trump's answer on Muslims

Everyone is asking what trump should have said. But I wonder if the people asking the questions were screened. Surely they don't just let anyone ask anything. So if the people and their questions are screened, what message were the Republicans wanting to make by allowing such a paranoid and racist question?

Narcissism in detail

Since a narcisist is in the news 24/7 /narcissism/ includes a test and further research, including SEX!!

I've been reading about semiotics and thought I'd experiment, thus the bold, the caps and double!!

Donald Trump versus a Chimp with a Good Accountant

As I watch Donald Trump campaign I can't help but notice that this guy who touts his deal making acumen as his greatest qualification for being president doesn't seem particularly adept at business dealings. In the very first opening salvo of his campaign not only did he alienate almost the entire Latino community but he cost himself tens of millions of dollars in endorsement deals besides. All he needed to do was use overt but coded

Immaculate conception

I solved the mystery of Mary's unknown sexual trist. God has a really tiny penis and she did not know he was in there.

hey Thom, encouage viewers & listeners to call the FTC to fine "Southern" Baptist leaders for false services

hey Thom, since the so called "Southern" Baptist church buildings are north of the equator, each of the leaders of said "Southern" Baptist church buildings deserve to be fined $250,000 per each offense of having this name of "Southern"; "Southern" Baptist religions do collect a tithe in exchange for service(s), and these fraudulent deceptions of religious consumers must instantly and permanently come to an end; let's bankrupt the "Southern" Baptists before their hateful ideology hurts more people that aren't heteros

violence and the state; rhetoric left and right

Of the many instances over the years of violence and threats of violence there are a couple recent instances which motivated me to post this. One is discussed here: The second, a video, is here: It demonstrates the kind of violence which is common from the right wing when they are unable to organize a terrorist attack or school shooting.

Jeb's response to Trump

It's too bad the Dems don't respond to these debates.

-Did anyone hear Jeb say we were safer under his brother? Really? Anyone want to point out we had the biggest attack on the US since Pearl Harbor under his brother's Presidency?

-Or that President Obama killed Osama Bin Laden?

-Or that ISIS is a direct result of attacking a Country that had nothing to do with 9/11

-Or that we have had no attacks on the US since Obama was President?

Why don't we have a voice?

GOP vs Women

Women are 53% of registered voters (women live longer than men and old widows still vote in states the GOP governors have not purged them or denied the vote over a maiden name vs married name), yet not a one of them had a suggestion for the woman to grace the 10 dollar bill. Jeb!-Maggie Thatcher--uhh Jeb!, not an American but he got to put Reagan in his answer....success for the GOP is who got to fit Reagan in the most times. If possible a Reagan Omelet would let one fit his name in for an answer re: American Health and diet.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
