Reading Time: 2 minutes Dear Senator Cruz, Recently, you took issue with our young Elmo getting a COVID vaccine shot. Elmo, a 3-1/2-year-old puppet, was demonstrating to scared children out there that the shot was just “a little pinch,” and that they shouldn’t be afraid. You also took issue with his father Louie saying that it’s okay for parents […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute Thing is, Cruz won’t be embarrassed by this – it’s water off a duck’s back – but he should be. My, he should be. Stay in touch!

Reading Time: 3 minutes Senator Ted Cruz never misses a chance to speak out against gun control and digs the Second Amendment. He does so to such a degree that … he held a 2015 campaign event (during the presidential primary race) at an Iowa gun shop and range. Before he ascended to Congress (and abandoned freezing Texas constituents while fleeing […]
Reading Time: < 1 minute I love lawmakers like AOC and Katie Porter. They are eloquent, they care and they DO stuff. You know, other than going on holiday to Cancun. Chris Cillizza nails loads of good points here, so I’ll leave it to him: Just to give some love to Porter, here’s her in recent action: and… I get […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes A winter storm with below freezing temperatures killed more than a few people in Texas last week. The failure of the state’s electrical grid during the weeklong cold snap left more than four million Texans without electricity and heat, many for days on end in subfreezing temperatures. Many residents also lost access to water, and 14.6 million were ordered […]
Reading Time: 6 minutes Ben Sasse is a conservative Republican. Donald Trump is not. Donald Trump is an ideologically empty vessel, half of which is filled with his own fickle, narcissism-driven intuition, the other half of which is filled with poison dripped in by the morally bankrupt ne’er-do-wells surrounding him. Indeed, many supposedly Constitution-obsessed, free-market-driven, conservative “libertarians” are anything […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes What an absolute flood of insanity inspired by years of the most irresponsible POTUS in recent American history. Or, arguably, ever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTM7gYSMn7A Lies. Absolute lies. Dangerous, insurrection-rousing lies. And yet the US often has the gall to march around the world lecturing people on democracy, criticising other nations and their elections! Cruz and Hawley need […]
Reading Time: 8 minutes How conservative campaigners are using psychometrics and social media date to manipulate their target voters. Facebook “Likes” allow companies to know you better than your own family. These are truly scary times.
Reading Time: 9 minutes I mentioned being very very helpful the other day, and today I want to demonstrate that helpfulness by giving the duly-appointed (and self-appointed) representatives of the Religious Right some new slogans they can use to market their simple, universal human message of terror, misogyny, brutality, tribalism, abuse, and violence.
