I don’t know that I would describe him as a scapegoat. Because a scapegoat can be passive. Tim Scott is active in his own subjugation, and that of people who look like him. Read more

He’s utterly insufferable, and his music is the equivalent of a wet basement. You think those people are the worst? Really stick to your convictions and don’t show up. Keep it real in the coffee houses. Ass.

My hope here is that people don’t loose the thread in midst of their (justified) Trump loathing. The issue is not that he avoided the taxes. The issue is that most of the avoidance schemes that he utilized were PERFECTLY LEGAL. It’s symptomatic of a sick society, and one in need of massive reform. Read more

Originalism is bullshit, and is nothing more than a tool to provide legitimacy to continued retrograde social engineering. I take comfort in the fact that on the issues Ms. Barrett has been selected to rule on, she with join a SCOTUS majority so out of step with the opinion of most Americans that she will ultimately Read more

There is a strong argument to be made that the terms of Texas Cession allow for breaking Texas into 5 states. I would argue that the problem for Republicans is that they couldn’t cut it up in a way that would allow them to maintain control.

Here’s where I give a tip of the hat to Christopher Priest, and his writing on “The Falcon” limited series in the early 1980's.

The people The Federalist Society has hand picked for the court are there for 3 reasons: overturn Roe, support deregulation, and maintain the current power structure through the limitations of the democratic prerogatives of people disposed to change. Taking away the ability of these people to decide if a law passed by Read more

Yes times infinity. If I read one more article about how this appointment is going to “change the direction of the court for a decade” I’m going to fucking scream. Assuming the Dems win the POTUS and retake the Senate, go and pack the court. Or pull the right to decide the constitutionality of cases from SCOTUS and Read more

I 100% believe that. The version that I went with was the one that was published in the Washington Post. Love to have the local version!

Not only an amazing coach, but a genuinely good human being who would do anything for his players. Look at the guys from the 1984 team and the success they enjoyed, not just in basketball, but in life. Big John helped make that possible. Read more

This is the worst production of “12 Angry Men” I’ve ever seen.

Last night, watching Harris accept that nomination, I couldn’t help but think of a woman who worked at my daycare. Mrs. Arra was a regal woman who always wore saris, and who took the time to explain to us that the gold bracelets she always wore had been an engagement gift from her husband. When I fell and split my Read more

I bought every Tribe alum twice, tape and then CD. The absence of De La from the streaming market is absurd, particularly because of the strange things that sneak through (e.g. “Fallin’”, a solid collaboration between then and Teenage Fanclub from the “Judgement Night”soundtrack). At this point, I’m assuming Tommy Boy Read more

I have very conflicted feelings about this, so feel free to check me. On one level, wonderful. Here’s an (overqualified) man of color, who makes most (all?) the nepotism-bots filling out executive jobs in other franchises look silly. Read more

It’s fitting somehow that Ned the Wino would leave the world now that we’ve all become day drinkers.

I’m surprised that the number is so low, because 99% of the white people in this country are subjected to an economic system where the ONLY currency they have left is “Whiteness”.
