and Why Each is Important to Keep

It comes as no surprise that the very very “white” conservatives aka Republicans have devoted a lot of time in fighting both the Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project. Both are centered on including a lot of the ugly and dirty history in the development of the U.S. However, they go beyond just wanting it ignored, they attack both ideologies as if THEY are causing racist attitudes. While history is writing by the winners, there are plenty that want as close to the full story given to kids as possible. …

In years gone by this kind of title would have been devoted to a dystopian “what if” story. However, the saddest part is that the story is trying to come true. We are witnessing the transition of the Party of Lincoln as it mutates into something unrecognizable. They know that they are SO unpopular that they have shoved all manner of cheating into various state laws so that they will have a chance at winning. …

It is well-understood that the supporters of the former guy are willing to do anything to try to overturn the 2020 Presidential election. Their demand to bring in an inexperienced, QAnon supporting pro-trump organization such as the “Cyber Ninjas” from Sarasota, Florida (say no more) to make a really bad attempt at so-called “auditing” of the Arizona Presidential ballots is something that we should ALL be outraged over. There have been three individual audits of the voting results already with complete confirmation of the results. This group has shown that they have zero understanding of not only how to protect…


And Did We Learn Anything from It?

It is a vast understatement to say that the health of people should never be politicized, but that didn’t stop the former guy, his administration, and the cult followers that believe and obey. Many knew that our country was going to face a disaster the moment that he began bungling the COVID-19 topic and response. He handled the subject of the pandemic in the same way that he handled anything that he either didn’t like or just didn’t want to deal with: denial, lies, and deceit. Spinning the health of people as a political ploy and acting like wearing masks…

Candace Owens has led a rather privileged life and while she likes to invoke the City of Philadelphia for street cred, the Black community there was unaware of her and frankly, didn’t care. She has lived in upscale neighborhoods, attended college at University of Rhode Island (where she dropped out) and has little or no contact with the kind of life that many Black Americans experience. My guess is that her time working as an intern for Vogue probably gave her the insight as to how to elevate herself above the rest and that meant being radically opposite of other…

It’s a fact that after decades and decades of racism and police brutality against Black Americans and other people of color, the George Floyd case brought the entire topic to the forefront. This has exposed the ugly face of America and white people don’t like it. If you have any doubt about that all you have to do is look at what is being spewed on the conservative channels (not news) such as Fox, OAN, and Newsmax. They are pushing as many false narratives as they can and the good news is — America isn’t buying it. 71% of the…

Some may have heard about or even seen examples of the Milgram Experiment. It is considered to be the most famous studies involving the psychology of obedience. Conducted by a Yale University psychologist, Stanley Milgram in 1963, it was an in-depth examination of the battle between personal conscience and authoritarian obedience. This study is pertinent today because it exemplifies one of the reasons “why” the right wing seems to throw aside all semblances of common sense to do, say, and believe anything their leaders tell them.

Many of us have long compared the actions and words of the red hats…

A majority of Americans are pretty much clueless when it comes to the topic of the filibuster. The fact that it even exists is a real head-scratcher because its original purpose was only to delay the decision of a bill in the Senate. By definition: filibuster — Informal term for any attempt to block or delay Senate action on a bill or other matter by debating it at length, by offering numerous procedural motions, or by any other delaying or obstructive actions. act. The first filibuster was in 1837 when Whig senators chose to use the filibuster to try to…

Let’s be VERY honest here, if there were attacks on our Capitol by Muslim Americans, Black Americans, or any group OTHER than white people, the media would be flooding the airwaves and internet by pointing out exactly WHO is behind all of it. If there was an increase in hate crimes around the country against white people as there has been against people of color, the conservatives would be screaming and whining about it. But here we are with an onslaught of white male rage against anyone that isn’t white and their version of so-called “Christianity” and no one says…


(and they’re running out of people to hate)

Conservatives have long-held an attitude of supporting their candidates, no matter what. Unlike liberals, that are often very selective and disagree with some of the candidate’s positions, right wingers line up to vote, no matter how bad the candidate is. If you doubt this, just look at who they voted for in 2016 and their list of rather pathetic Republican representatives now. Many of those that take a right wing stand have felt left out of just about everything. They lack social skills, are often lower in the education area, and have…
