Anything Different Would Be Crazy
Fri, 01 Jul 2022 06:23:25 +0000

A two-party political system isn’t a democracy. It’s a flail machine. Voters keep voting against the party in charge in order to send a message. Eventually, they keep voting for the party that they were trying to send a message against.

Nothing to Worry about
Wed, 29 Jun 2022 06:22:40 +0000

Humanity seems absolutely determined not to do anything about the climate change crisis or the environment. But think about the bright side: rising oceans will resolve all sorts of issues that we actually pay attention to.

Supreme Court to Progressives: Wake Up
Mon, 27 Jun 2022 12:38:58 +0000

            The Supreme Court just sent us a wake-up call. Pro-reality Americans, i.e. the 40% of voters to the left of the Democratic Party, should be grateful.             A freedom essential to half the population never should have hinged upon a flimsy and poorly-reasoned legal opinion. Congress should have followed the example of other countries...

DMZ America Podcast #54: Roe v Wade Killed, Guns, Ukraine and Male Masturbation
Sat, 25 Jun 2022 15:14:43 +0000

The DMZ America podcast falls off of the rails hard, but first Ted and Scott discuss the SCOTUS decision to throw abortion back to the states. Earlier the court struck down a New York gun law.

Trump and Biden are Both Liars. Only Trump Gets Called Out.
Thu, 23 Jun 2022 16:11:13 +0000

           The following phrase, and its variants, has become ubiquitous: “Donald Trump’s baseless charges of election fraud.” Mainstream news outlets have accelerated its use during the congressional hearings on the January 6th Capitol riot.             The phrase is accurate. Though historically American elections have been marred by fraud and outright subversion, no evidence has surfaced...

Be Careful What You Mitch for
Wed, 22 Jun 2022 06:05:18 +0000

Polls indicate that Democrats are about to suffer a shellacking in the 2022 midterm elections. Voters are unhappy about inflation, supply chain problems and other issues, but Republicans should be careful what they want — once they are in charge of Congress, they will catch much of the blame for the issues that allowed them...

1% Solution Deserves 1% Reward
Mon, 20 Jun 2022 06:56:31 +0000

The muckraking journalist Lincoln Steffens pointed out that a half-measure in politics can actually make a problem worse. Media and voters believe that a problem has been addressed or that Congress has done as much as it is able or willing to do about it. That reduces the chance of a real, complete solution. Congress...
