Is Trump (Literally) A Madman?

As Trump melds TV-watching with Tweeting, in his warped flow of media-addled consciousness, he is the perfect example how our TV-addicted culture has now morphed into the tech-addicted culture of alt-"facts."Mental health experts have claimed the President is 'paranoid and delusional' and say it's their 'ethical responsibility' to warn the American public. If he's crazy, what drove him nuts? I think several things may have: money, nasty racist parents, his warped genetic template... but in … [Read more...]

What’s The “Conservative” Response Been to the Rash of Fox News-Sexual Predators? Silence.

When I grew up in the evangelical ghetto good manners about all things sexual were the gold standard of both my evangelical upbringing and our ideas about what it meant to be a conservative. The thought that abuse of women, and sexually predatory antics would be defended by conservatives would have been as unthinkable as imagining Russian Communist leaders extoling the virtues of capitalism.Had a 1950s or 1960s version of Bill O’Reilly or Roger Ailes (the former Fox News chairman) manifested … [Read more...]

Trump and the Republican Party Are Selling Your Internet Privacy at a Corrupt Level That Stuns

When it comes to Internet privacy Trump, and the GOP are adopting the corporate-authoritarian model of China – where the state can not only watch everything you do on the Internet, but can also censor it. And Trump and the GOP add insult to civil rights injury: They want to strip Americans of privacy rights while also letting private companies make money off our loss of rights. Call this the United-Airlines-Mug-A-Paying-Passenger philosophy of consumer "rights"... on a national "legalized" s … [Read more...]

"How can I make my relationships and my life work?"Hint:It isn't anything you'll learn about male or female orgasms online.The Alpha Males on Wall Street and running Silicon Valley have nothing to teach you.The Alpha Females at your local Women's Studies program have nothing for you either...A happy life is about......choosing to not be a male or female "Alpha" jerk and put people first, not career, position or income.Be "powerful" if you must... but...in only … [Read more...]

My “Easter Sermon” and Video Rant: Trump is a symptom. We’re losing our souls…

Trump is a symptom. We’re losing our souls. Silicon Valley billionaires think they will live forever by downloading their consciousness to computers. Evangelicals are waiting for Jesus. What all agree on is that our true redeemer these days is Ayn Rand and the cult of money, power and greed. Selfishness and anti-human behavior is the norm. A passenger is mugged on United; a fraud is elected “president”; the rich get richer everyone else loses leg room so to speak, and has to pay to check a bag. T … [Read more...]

Trump: Will he Fake Terror?

Trump is a man so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead. Will he fake terror? Will he go to war to distract us? The unthinkable is now thinkable. That itself is stomach-turning.From Vladimir Putin to Saddam Hussein, Trump has expressed his admiration for a rogues’ gallery of foreign dictators and autocrats. And we know that other “strongman” leaders he admires have gone to war just for the ratings, or to distract from thei … [Read more...]
