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…

Yes, this is a horrible statement, but after witnessing the behavior horrors of the last 5 years that is continuing on a daily basis, this group has well-proven that they lack any relationship to human beings. Instead, they are a group of knuckledragging, conspiracy theory believing morons that can’t seem to find enough people of color and religions other than their twisted version of Christianity to hate.

We have watched as they “hate:” Muslims, Mexicans, any Latina, and now anyone that even looks “Asian.” They scream the word “patriot” and yet support authoritarian regime control. They call liberals socialists and…

For the first time in 5 years we, as a nation, can wake up every morning without the dread of what insanity the former guy tweeted. We are finally free of hate-filled vitriol that not only causes outrage but embarrassment. We can deal with the challenge of the pandemic without knowing that there is a narcissist sociopath in DC trying to undermine our very existence and for the first time in a long time….we can take a deep breathe and continue our journey. President Biden was correct in saying that “America is Back,” but given that a percentage of citizens…

There have been volumes written about the insanity of social media and as time passes one hopes that it will evolve to something that is hopefully beyond just a place to reconnect with lost loved ones and friends, social media has become a bastion where losers show up as angry trolls, the idiots that no one listens to become experts on everything, and leaders such as Facebook are creating really bad algorithms. …

Over the last 5 years we have continually observed older white women come forward to rabidly defend their support for trump as well as many of the Republicans that have little or no interest in women’s issues (except to govern them.) Each time I have seen this happen, I and many, are simply in a quandary as to “why” any woman would follow, support, and vote for anyone that goes against their interests?

The history of white women voting Republican shows that the percentage is actually being reduced, but at a very slow rate. While many of these older white…
