Political Correctness is a Good Thing.

Look, folks. It’s time we stop acting like political correctness is the ultimate evil. It’s not. Read the rest of this entry

How Bernie Sanders Changed America

Posted on

2016 is a year of political history. In different ways, and to varying degrees, everybody made history.

Hillary Clinton is the first woman to ever be nominated for the presidency by a major political party.

Donald Trump received more votes than any republican candidate in the history of the republican primaries.

So yeah… Clinton and Trump are making history.

But they aren’t changing history. They haven’t changed the country itself. Read the rest of this entry

Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz… on the Constitution:

“We need to put people on the bench that understand the Constitution is not a living and breathing document. It is to be interpreted as originally meant.” – Marco Rubio

“My touchstone for every question is the constitution.” – Ted Cruz Read the rest of this entry

This Isn’t Poetic Justice.

“Donald Trump is a monster of the republicans’ own making.”

I hear this often.

And if I’m being totally honest here, it’s something I’ve said myself, quite often.

Clyde’s Rulebook

Posted on

While I think Bill Maher is a jerk to many of his guests, he does make some good points sometimes. I just wish he wasn’t so smug about it, maybe then I could watch his show without hoping he gets hit by a bus on his way out of the studio. But the one thing I will take away from his show is the “New Rules” segment. Except I’m making them into my own rules. Break one of these rules … I don’t know. You might get fined, like one of those traffic cameras that sends you a ticket in the mail. I might talk about you here and tell people you’re an a-hole. Or – and this is the worst thing I can think of – I just won’t like you. I won’t respect you, I won’t listen to anything you have to say. You will be, for all intents and purposes, a non-entity to me. You will be to me what regular citizens are to members of Congress (ba-dum-tish!).

Alright, let’s get down to it.

We’re Back…

I’m not gonna’ get right to it… This is just a quick note to let you know that Clyde and I are back. We’ve been away for a long time. Real life demanded that we take care of some business at home. Read the rest of this entry

It’s a damn handshake…

Posted on

At Nelson Mandela’s memorial in South Africa, President Obama – while going to his seat – shook several hands. One of those hands belonged to Raul Castro.

And, of course, republicans have gone apeshit over it. John McCain even invoked Godwin’s Law and compared it to shaking hands with Hitler. Read the rest of this entry
