Are Carper’s Empty Suit Days Over?

Other than being a US Senator, Tom Carper is also Delaware Liberal’s punching bag and for many a good reason. One aspect of Carper’s record that is kind of good, B minus good, is his environmental record. With Sen.

How Many White Supremacists is Tom Carper Comfortable With?

The DC office told my friend that there were no plans. My friend asked, “How many white supremacist the senator was comfortable with in the incoming administration?”

Brussel Sprout Derangement Syndrome

We were having this big family reunion and my mother decided she was going to make several brussel sprout casseroles for the dinner. The thing is I don’t like brussel sprouts, but if I have to, yeah, I’ll eat them. I talked to my mother and tried to get her to make her amazing kugel, a noodle casserole that is out of this world. You see the problem with brussel sprouts is that not many people like them, but people love some kugel.

Stop Slut-Shaming Melania Trump

There are times when our opponents will go low and we will go high. There are times that we will respond with a rage they have never seen. (Not going to happen, but a man can wish can’t he?)

The Need to Attract White Voters

Since 1976, a Democratic presidential nominee has never won the white vote. The 2016 Election continues that trend.

What It Means

Some may say Drive-By Truckers are the best Southern rock’n roll band since Lynyrd Skynyrd, but that is an incredible disservice to the Truckers, since they are probably the most important American rock’n roll band over the last 15 years. They are coming out with a new album in September called American Band. Their second single is What It Means, an examination of US society today.
