The Pee-Pee President

Yesterday’s “bombshell” news rumor that the Russian government has videotapes of Donald Trump paying prostitutes to give each other “golden showers” has me giggling almost uncontrollably. Is it news? It’s veracity is highly questionable, which means no. Is it much needed lightness in an otherwise dismal time in the United States? Hell to the yeah!…

The Everlasting Trumpgasm of the Corporate News Media

What the corporate media has discovered in the Republican nominee is pure money-making political pornography. They have a candidate so outrageous, so forbidden, so unacceptable, yet so much a part of the popular culture that they can air him without much of any public backlash.

Leveraging My Dissent: Why Saying I'll Vote for Clinton Wouldn't Help My Cause

We have to change the way we choose.

What we have now is the public vivisection of the status quo, a “money, mo’ money” status that has led us to Bernie Madoff, Martin Shkreli, “The Big Short” and too-big-to-fail banking firms that are now bigger and more risky than they were before the Great Recession. We can see the bones of corruption beneath the layers now, and we are finally infuriated. We’re ready to act, en masse, because eyes are opening to the lies and the manipulation that so transparently attempts to keep a candidate we like from even appearing on t.v. We don’t trust the previously trusted voices, and we find more and more often the ties between the the naysayers and the money behind the curtain.
