Good morning, everybody! Now you will have to spend some time with me… [Read more…]
Ok, this is all I will post today because the wife is assaulting me with birthday snuggles. This will surprise you, but Donald Trump continues to not-so-subtly beg sensible people to not vote for him. Yesterday he received his first intelligence briefing from the CIA. Today, he claims he wouldn’t use US intelligence if elected [Read More…]
So today’s my birthday. I’m ancient. I don’t celebrate my birthday. One of my voice students the other day asked me why. I told her that before I got married it was because I didn’t like the feeling of growing older. Now it’s because my wife celebrates it enough for both of us: So, I [Read More…]
I know I’ve posted a lot lately about how Trump’s campaign is comically disintegrating. That’s all true, but before I scoot off for voice lessons today I wanted to post a warning: Complacency is how we still lose this. Every person who thinks, “Oh, Trump is getting smashed in the polls, we got this. No [Read More…]
This is entrapment. How do I not blog this? I didn’t believe this was a real thing. I stand corrected. https://t.co/72iZcW3JTo — John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) August 16, 2016 Seriously guys, hire an atheist, do whatever you have to do to stop naming your things like this: Better yet, don’t. Just…as you were. [Read more…]
Let’s be generous, super generous, beyond any sane levels of generous and say that when Trump joked about 2nd Amendment supporters using violence if Clinton gets to appoint SCOTUS Justices that he was actually, as he has said, making a statement about political organizing to get him elected (even though the statement was made in the [Read More…]
I keep thinking things can’t get worse for Trump, and each time I’m wrong. Saturday Trump held a rally in Connecticut that boggled political experts everywhere. Not only did Trump say some bizarre shit (he wants to strip press credentials), as Ed Brayton captured beautifully, the rally itself made no sense. As Brayton put it: Saturday, [Read More…]
Whoa, religion blazing a trail into the 21st Century: A NEWSPAPER THAT SERVES the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community took a small but significant step for women last week when it printed a picture of Hillary Clinton, partially obscured, speaking at a campaign rally in Florida. The photo was first picked up by a Jewish blog, Only [Read More…]
The Mormon Church continues to experience fallout over its anti-gay policies. The Guardian, this week, highlighted Lila Steffensen’s walk away from the Church: Steffensen was conflicted at the time, and years later, she stopped going. But she remained a member of the Mormon faith up until last week when she decided to officially cut ties [Read More…]
There are some cases where it feels like all that is appropriate is to give sympathy. Sadly, in some of those situations reside truths that need to be spoken. One such scenario is that of a Kenyan woman who was recently attacked by her husband with a machete. The attack ultimately resulted in him severing [Read More…]
Rudy Guiliani claims there were no terrorist attacks before Obama. Forgets he was mayor of NYC on 9/11, apparently.
Today Rudy Giuliani tried to blame Obama and Clinton for terror attacks on the United States. Specifically, he said we didn’t have an terrorist attacks on our soil before Clinton took office: Uh… Dude…buddy…pal…friend…you were the mayor of New York during the attacks of September 11th!!! You were right. fucking. there! And when Guliani ran for [Read More…]
More Trump: still plummeting in polls, controversy with his campaign chair, ideological tests for immigration.
I keep saying Trump will rebound at some point, closing the gap to at least less of a blowout, but it didn’t happen this last week as Trump continued to unravel and slide in the polls (especially among young voters, where he is getting positively obliterated). In fact, conservative mouthpiece Breitbart, miffed that traditionally reliable polling [Read More…]
