Is Carper’s statement enough to defuse the slap?

Is Carper’s statement enough to defuse the slap?

Under normal conditions, probably. Carper’s account, now in the Washington Post, would probably put this to rest. I certainly don’t think Delaware voters would hold the slap against him, particularly if the alternative is electing a Republican. But we are not living in normal times. When Kirsten Gillibrand is asked about the apology what will […]

It begins… The Law of unintended consequences to bring down Tom Carper

I always thought that it would be Father Time, but it will be the fact that he admitted to hitting his wife. Drudge Report links to Carper story. I’m not linking because I don’t want to give Drudge hits. The story he links to is here. Freebeacon.com MediaBiasFactCheck.com says this about The Washington Free Beacon, […]

Tom Carper Rolled By Republicans As Usual

Tom Carper Rolled By Republicans As Usual

What did Tom Carper get for all his prodigious “bipartisanship bridge building” and what how have his Republican friends across the aisle reciprocated all of his overtures of friendship?

I’m seriously asking because the reconciled House and Senate tax bill is even MORE rapaciously Republican than the original version.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a vile, monstrous sack of human feces

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a vile, monstrous sack of human feces

Trump degrades the office of the Presidency by making a creepy, sexist statement about a sitting Senator, a statement that would make even the most socially inept Republican loser uncomfortable, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies her ass of defending him. She has no shame. She is, perhaps the most vile and disgusting human alive on […]

The Reckoning

Filed in National by on December 12, 2017 6 Comments

Trump is toxic. The Virginia results could be waved off. Wingnut Pundits will try to wave the Doug Jones win off, noting that Roy Moore was a flawed candidate. But by that measure every Republican supporting Trump (or supported by Trump) is a flawed candidate.

No. The tide has turned. Candidates that tie themselves to Trump are tying a anvil around their necks.

HELLO, I AM THE MYTHICAL MIDDLE-CLASS PERSON WHO REPUBLICANS SAY WILL BENEFIT FROM THEIR NEW TAX BILL

Filed in National by on December 8, 2017 4 Comments

Salutations. Greetings, old sport. I humbly greet you with a wave of my white-gloved hand. Is this how middle-class people greet one another? I’m only asking because I want to make sure you’re a middle-class American just like I am. I, of course, know how common citizens of this country say hello, for you see, […]

It’s a Wonderful Life? It could be.

Filed in National by on December 8, 2017 0 Comments
It’s a Wonderful Life?   It could be.

In It’s a Wonderful Life when George Bailey is shown the version of Bedford Falls that would have come to pass if he had never existed, it is a bewildering experience for him. The faces are the same, though worn and weary from their tough life under Potter’s greedy and callous misrule. Mary, George’s Bedford Falls wife, is a Pottersville librarian barely scraping by living in a dreary and dilapidated house. In Pottersville, Nick own’s Martini’s bar where he “serve(s) hard drinks… for men who want to get drunk fast.” But in the original Bedford Falls, Martini’s is a happy place where honest working men content with their lives stop in for a chance to relax in a convivial atmosphere.

The most unsettling thing about George’s interactions with residents of Potterville is their blindness to the possibility of a less shitty life. Unlike George, they are prisoners of their daily grind. They have no overhead view, so Pottersville has always been Pottersville as far as they are concerned. They don’t know that a slightly less rapacious capitalism, and a community oriented savings and loan might have made a big difference in their lives.

Similarly, the country’s better vision of itself is dimming. We are sliding into a time in Americans don’t recall what life used to be like before hatred, greedy and self-serving overthrew the more tradition values of charity, peace and cooperation. You can see it in Democrats like John Carney who thoughtlessly parrot the GOP’s mean-spirited talking points on Government spending, treating any outlay to ameliorate suffering as waste and any investment is the future as folly. You can see it on the evening news that doesn’t even bother to mention that Trump was elected on his promises to protect medicare, medicaid and social security. Worn down and weary from the daily litany of lies.

I don’t know how we turn it around. George Bailey had his kindly Clarence who set the world back on its correct axis. Maybe that’s a hint? Maybe the answer is for all of us to to serve as each other’s Clarence and remind each other that there is a Bedford Falls underneath the ugly skin of Pottersville? That’s what I’ll be trying to do. Even if our Pottersville is the reality and the Bedford Falls America of my youth was the dream. The dream is worth the effort.

A 20% Tax Rate With a 20% AMT leaves nowhere to hide the profits

Filed in National by on December 5, 2017 3 Comments

This “success by accident” will be fixed, and Congress will figure out how to make their donors happy. In the meantime, it is nice to know that it is possible to pass a tax bill that actually requires corporations to pay up. The Senate bill brings the normal corporate rate down to 20 percent — […]

Carper votes against preventing cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

Tom Carper always touts his “ability to work across the aisle” and “build bridges” with his “Republican Partners.” But look at his track record. His ability to “work across the isle” completely sucks. Sure he is great at voting with the Republicans when it comes to screwing his working class constituents, but he NEVER gets […]

Trump isn’t getting impeached

Just simmer down everyone. Take a look at the unlikely series of events that would have to unfold for Trump to be impeached. 1) Mueller would have to have some pretty clear cut evidence that Trump himself committed a crime. Evidence that Trump knew about a crime, our allowed a crime to happen isn’t going […]

Occasional Words From the Resistance

Occasional Words From the Resistance

“And that brings me to the second mode of civil disobedience. There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!”

—-Mario Savio, Sproul Hall, Berkeley, December 2, 1964

Godspeed and good luck to today’s resistors.

Carper pulled the old “we’ve got a bad line” trick on Trump

This is a good/news bad news story. The good news is that Carper recognizes that the President is an idiot. The bad news is that Carper was trying to get rid of the moron so that the grownup corporation loving centrists could find “middle ground” on the GOP’s horrible tax cuts for millionaires scheme.

Lord only knows what hell will be unleashed on the middle class when that “middle ground” is discovered.

Paul Baumbach on the Shortage of Trade School Grads

Put the Vocational and Technical back into Vo-Tech. In my district, the Vo-tech school is treated by many parents as another college prep charter school. Part of the problem, nationally and in Delaware, is that the Congress expanded their definition of what a vo-tech school can teach, and as a result some (nationally and in […]

Republican Tax Plan will pay for tax cuts for millionaires by cutting Medicare

Two weeks after its introduction and following zero hearings, the House of Representatives passed an approximately $1.5 trillion dollar tax cut on Thursday. Most of the focus has been on the bill’s tax benefits for the wealthy and […]

Now I’m (not) banned at BlueDelaware

Filed in National by on November 17, 2017 27 Comments

Correction. I’m not banned. I’m still an arch defender of sexual harassment I guess though.

Such thin skins.

All I said was:

So… if you liked Bernie you were a purist who was trying to ruin the party – and if you like Franken you are an unprincipled, party hack, sellout. Got it! I guess being a purist is coming into style.

Delaware Dem. replied:

And the only thing a piece of shit like you is pragmatic or practical on is defending sexual harassers. Got it. Go fuck yourself Jason.

Then I said:

“Fair enough. In turn, You’ve got such a finely tuned hypocrisy detector – why don’t you point it at yourself sometime?”

He also called me a defender of sexual harassment on twitter. This obvious straw man means his “argument” or whatever you want to call it has jumped the shark.
