Now You Tell Me

This is one of the ads that is running on one of the blogs today. How revolting.

Unfortunately, I cannot click the ad that appears on my own blog because of the rules which govern putting ads on my sites. But, if I could, I'd click on this and go read how ridiculous it is.

The idea that we should fear "homosexual" marriage is asinine and ridiculous. We should fear absolutely nothing with regards to marriage, other than being invited to a wedding a long way aways where the people getting married are only registered at Williams Sonoma (oh, that place is expensive, let me tell you) or Restoration Hardware (which closed near here because it was even more outrageously expensive).

The world is not going to end if gay people get to marry. Far from it. American society will improve dramatically, people will have less to complain about, and maybe--just maybe--more foster kids will end up in better places with families who want them.

I am all for allowing gay people to adopt and raise foster children. We need so much more of that, not less of it. So, no. Don't try to change my mind on that. Because your data on that is nonexistent. Your information and data about how gay people are somehow going to destroy America by getting married? It doesn't exist.

How can you be against something we haven't even tried yet? And how can something that hasn't happened yet contribute to the collapse of a country that was going to hell in a handbasket long before it was even remotely possible for gay people to get married?

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
