The Freudian Slip or as Bubba Would Put It: A Good Ole Boy Done Screwed Up! We are in a new era of colorblind racism. Racists, sexists, and other -ists try to hide their true feelings but if you listen, you can “hear” those feelings. This is a good time to post this older racist pronouncement as it still applies today. Here is a quote from a Fox and Friends blatherer, Brian Kilmeade about immigrant children separated from their parents:…

Is He a dumbass or just an ass?

Democratic lawmaker goes on epic rant after GOP colleague admits hiding positive coronavirus test: “Every single day of this crisis this State Government Committee in Pennsylvania has met so that their members could line up one after one after one and explain that it was safe to go back to work,” he said. “During that time period they were testing positive. They were notifying one another. And they didn’t notify us.” “I never ever, ever knew that the Republican leadership…

The Real Problem in America

The Real Problem in America

Trump’s Fifth Simple Trick for Stealing the Election Will Give You Nightmares—and Tear America Apart: Everyone knows he’ll cheat. Even his supporters know he’ll cheat. His cheating is one of the things they love about him. So that he’ll cheat—while loudly accusing the other side of cheating—is a given. There are plenty of concerns in the U.S. but the real problem that will eventually destroy us is the mindset of those in power. Nowhere can it be clearer than it…

Veterans Day or Just More Bullshit?

Veterans Day or Just More Bullshit?

We are about to celebrate another Veterans Day and honor the veterans in our country but do we really understand what we’re honoring them for? Is it because they got shot at? Is it because they killed people? I don’t believe that’s the truth. It’s a matter of having gone away from family and friends into a hostile environment to stand for the rights of people in this country and the belief that people can enter this country, become citizens, and…

The Freudian Slip or as Bubba Would Put It: A Good Ole Boy Done Screwed Up!

We are in a new era of colorblind racism. Racists, sexists, and other -ists try to hide their true feelings but if you listen, you can “hear” those feelings. For example, here is a quote from a Fox and Friends blatherer, Brian Kilmeade: And on Friday morning, “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade expressed that lack of compassion remarkably clearly. Here’s what he said (per Mediaite): “Like it or not, these aren’t our kids. Show them compassion, but it’s not…

The Double Standard

The Double Standard

So an interesting story today. Samantha Bee called the little Trumpette, Ivanka, a cunt, a phrase generally used by Trump Monkey himself for all of those women he dislikes. I am amazed at how much news coverage this incident has received yet so little about the pussy-grabbing, racist asshole who occupies the highest office in the land. To me, the shows a lack of common sense or concerns about the state of the Union. We truly have gone to hell…

Hide The Protestors

Hide The Protestors

The latest NFL decision follows the typical dominant group bullshit rules to hide the protestors by making them stay in the locker room defeats the whole reason to protest: to let others see the disagreements and maybe, just maybe, ask why they are in disagreement. Moving toward a Fascist system includes suppressing disagreement of any kind and hiding the protest is a form of suppression. Protesters during GW’s “reign” were sequestered inside a fenced area miles from the entourage. Not…

Bubbaville and “Loyalty”

Bubbaville and “Loyalty”

One thing has always been a mystery to me. The three stooges in this house have a rebel flag flying and a pro-TrumpMonkey sign in the yard as if he would give any of them the time of day much less associate with them. So, why the loyalty to a rich–although not super wealthy–1-percenter? Sadly, the answer is about permissions. His very presence in the highest office of the land gives them and other racist, sexist rednecks permission and license…

Education or Profit?

Education or Profit?

Introduction The free market economy has redefined education. Once upon a time, in a world far, far away, one without neoliberal capitalism and a market economy, a person could get a real education. Whether it was an undergraduate degree or a doctoral degree, it reflected a person’s ability to contribute to a field of study with significant research and to develop programs that could improve the state of affairs. Education was considered a state of mind, a lifelong learning process….
