If "Good Government" Doesn't Make American Lives Better Soon, the Coup of 2024 is Inevitable

Thom plus logo We must expose the real threat to liberty

You think things are bad in America now? Wait until hungry heads-of-households stop hoping for help and start stealing from stores or kicking in doors to get food for their kids. It's already starting to happen.

We're in an unacknowledged Second Republican Great Depression.

We're at the Threshold of a Fascist Authoritarian Takeover & January 6th Was Our Kristallnacht

Thom plus logo The work of 245 years & millions of lives dedicated or given to defend the American ideal could vanish

Today is the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, and is also the day after 45 Republicans in the Senate voted that Trump's attempt to turn America into a fascist state was just fine with them.

How does this kind of horror happen in otherwise civilized, advanced countries?

If America Doesn't Implement the "Buy American" Vision Now, the 21st Century Will Be the Chinese Century

Thom plus logo Technological independence and repudiating "free trade" are key.

A technological arms race is underway right now between China, the United States and Western Europe.

The stakes include military superiority, economic prosperity, and the status of being the political and economic system the world wants to emulate.

The Filibuster Was Grounded in Slavery and Now Threatens All Life on Earth

Thom plus logo It has to end, and you can help

It's time to end the filibuster and bring democracy to the US Senate.

Framing is the key to waking up Americans to the real forces behind GOP policies

Thom plus logo If Dems don't figure this out soon 2022 is a loss.

In politics, framing is everything, and Democrats must get with the program or 2022 will be a disaster.

Framing is when you define an issue by placing it within a particular context, usually done by careful choice of language.

Merciless Republican Traitors Beg for Mercy While Many Still At-Large

Thom plus logo Don't give it to them: the moment demands justice

For many Americans, it's just now starting to seriously sink in that on January 6th Donald Trump's allies killed five people in an attempt to violently overthrow the government of the United States and replace it with an strongman oligarchic dictatorship.

America is at a fascist turning point - and only totally disempowering and humiliating Trump will stop it

Thom plus logo Will our leaders and media have the courage to do it?

If Trump isn't exposed as a weakling fraud, our country dies.

Battle lines are now drawn in neighborhoods, workplaces, and even families, as longtime relationships are torn apart over loyalty to America's strongman fascist leader, Donald Trump.

How Much Better Off would America be If 6 Republican Presidents Hadn't Stolen The White House?

Thom plus logo It's about time the last one, Trump, is held accountable

Trump's impeachment trial is coming up in the Senate, and already his allies are trying to throw up procedural roadblocks to exhaust the effort to hold him accountable. Should America "move beyond" Trump? No friggin' way.

Shameless Radical Religious Leaders Have Now Corrupted Government

Thom plus logo It's time to cut them off from the "free lunch" of tax exemption

It's time for average Americans to stop being forced to subsidize politically radical religious leaders.

Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and heir to the multimillion-dollar Graham fortune, just publicly said that the 10 Republicans voting to impeach Donald Trump and the US House of Representatives were like Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus.

America is dying: three steps to bring us back from the brink

Thom plus logo Other developed countries are doing all these things; we can, too

Since the Reagan Revolution, America has been slowly dying. Democrats must focus like a laser on three things to breathe new life into our country. They are Education, Healthcare, and a Green New Deal.

How to know you're loved in a pandemic

Thom plus logo People think that they know the answer, "Oh, I know it when I see it; I know it when I feel it; I know it when I hear it." But how do you know that your partner is experiencing being loved?

"Trumpism" is just reinvented Reaganism with added brutality

Thom plus logo Grifter Trump stole Trumpism, just like everything else in his life

The king is dead; long live the [new] king.*

With today's transfer of power in Washington, DC, Trump isn't dead, but the best hope for the future of America and the world is that his political movement does, in fact, die an ignominious death.

The distressing truth: Why white people are embracing fascism

Thom plus logo White supremacy is real and white suppression of minorities, particularly Black people, absolutely permeates every aspect of our society, from business to culture to governance.

America is facing a "dark money" crisis & the Supreme Court is about to make it worse

Thom plus logo Joe Biden must "pack the court"

Thanks to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, the Supreme Court has become a menace, and only Congress and President Biden can fix it.

The Big Lie and truth are in an epic battle for the soul of America - The media and brave politicians hold the key

Thom plus logo The media and brave politicians hold the key

The media must explode this generation's Big Lie: Donald Trump's assertion that he really won the election and "voter fraud" handed a false victory to Joe Biden.

Trump and his handmaids on Fox, et al, have pushed his Big Lie so hard and so far that more than half of Republicans fully believe it -thus some are predictably acting on it, from the January 6th failed coup to armed protests at state capitols all around the nation. As long as they believe the Lie, they're not going to stop or go away.
