» I Could Feel the Boss Working that Racist Angle

I remember thinking, "Ooh, I can feel him working that racist angle. This can't be a good thing for racists."

Ronald Reagan recorded talking to Nixon using a racial slur to refer to Africans as 'monkeys' (National Archives, Oct 1971, posted 31 July 2019)

I wonder what Reagan thinks of that. I can almost hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth now.

» Whatever has Happened to the Republican Moral Compass Under Trump?

Coffee Joe also called out the Republicans for repeatedly lacking the moral courage to stand up to Trump's blatant and overt racism.

President Trump identifies with and defends hate groups in America

He took the side of a black man and publicly called out Trump in Elijah's defense. This made me think of what Marshall did here.

This is where you separate the men from the boys. This is where you separate those with a moral backbone from the moral invertebrates .. from those who shrink back in fear at the idea of confronting Trump's nakedly racist rhetoric.

» There is a Reason Why They're Called » Hate Crimes

I bet that Beto knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Beto O'Rourke says that Trump is actively promoting the racism that has led to the deaths in El Paso (4 Aug 2019)

This is why I included an image-link to this video where Coffee Joe poses the question » "Whose side are you on?" .. way back on Page One here.

I clearly remember the Way that the Boss was working that racist angle.

» Witnessing the Rise of Naked Racism as a Defining Political Strategy

There is some very dark shit going on in America today. And so much of it, too. Things that people never thought they would see in modern-day America ..

» The Unfolding of a National Moral Crisis

I bet that Brittney and Mara and Melissa know the national moral crisis that I am talking about.

Mara Gay (middle) says this is the time to speak out and tell America what your values are, and to stand up for your fellow citizen (29 July 2019)

Mara (center) says that this is the time to speak out and tell America what your values are .. and to stand up for your fellow citizen (29 July 2019).

I could not agree more.

» Mayor Pete's Impressive Bravery

It is off-topic for this page, but on the subject of being struck by bravery .. this thing by "Mayor Pete" ..

.. I dont care who you are, or how brave you might be .. that is not easy to do. You almost can't believe your own ears.

» My Experience has been that Gays are Typically More Compassionate Human Beings with a Better Moral Compass

I have said it before, and I will say it again .. it has been my experience that your average gay person is simply a better human being, with a better moral compass ..

.. than the average polite social Christian that you might happen to encounter on the street.

Susan Cottrell knows what I am talking about. Anderson knows what I am talking about.

Anderson says that even pretending to care about another human being who has suffered wounds that Trump himself has long been encouraging .. even this was too much for Trump. Me Me Me Trump. (8 Aug 2019)

For example, check out Don Lemon's interview here of 2020 Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg .. regarding the issue of tackling racial inequality (28 June 2019).

Don Lemon interviews 2020 Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg about the issue of tackling racial inequality and about Joe Biden being out of touch with reality at the 1st debate (28 June 2019)

Compare their conversation with that of Jake Corman here.

Jake Corman shouting over Pennsylvania state senator Katie Muth as she read a letter from a formerly homeless man (28 June 2019).

What a dick .. trying to take away what little the poor have.

I wonder what the Apostles think of Jake the Dick.

I can guarantee you that Jake is not gay. He makes my point for me.

Thank-you, Jake. Thank-you for making my point for me.

Dude, you need to chill the fuck out. Take a yoga class or something. Try some deep-breathing exercises. You're obviously wound way too tight.

It surprises me how vigorously you fight to take away what little the poor have.

You must want very badly to take away what little the poor have .. it seems obvious to everyone.

What happened to your soul?

» Must Drop the Initial HTML Set-Up for this Page by Midnight Tonight

For some reason that I am not entirely sure about .. I feel compelled to post this particular page on this very day .. with this title.

[ Right now the time is 11:44 PM, and this page is live. That is cutting it a little close.]

Such mandatory things frequently (not always) seem to come when you are least prepared .. and you simply have to suck it up and throw it down.

» The Sneaky Way that Life Seems to Bring Its Bigger Challenges When You Feel Least Prepared to Respond

I have noticed that what I call 'nadir writing,' where you are giving external voice to internal voice .. when you really dont feel like it, physically speaking ..

This type of writing forces you to dig deeper .. to someplace beyond you own human abilities and talents and skills and strengths. Or, at least this is the way it feels.

I guess my point here is to say that, although the timing of such things might seem to suck .. if you can find a way to suck-it-up and throw-it-down .. you can get some really cool stuff .. that you can get no other way.

Plus it feeds your sense of artistic self-confidence when you are able to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, and capture lightning in a bottle.

When you can execute a complex skill-set on demand in short order .. and even when you might not feel like it .. but you are able to do it anyway .. this is a powerful thing.

This is a powerful person. This is someone who can kick ass and take names. This a powerful person kicking ass and taking names and making it look easy .. even though it is far from easy. Very far. (Katy Perry and Cardi B know what I am taking about.)

» The Old Guard Puts Its Trust in Money as it Faithfully Serves Mammon

I could go into mind-numbing detail on this aspect right here .. where economics is used as the weapon-of-choice by those who value money above all else.

The Worship of Mammon

Here is an image of a supplicant petitioning Mammon for money.

» Is the Democratic Establishment About Us-the-People or are They Really About the Money?

A recurring question that keeps presenting itself to Us-the-People is » Is the Democratic establishment about the money, or about Us-the-People?

If they were required to choose between the two .. which would they choose? What do you think Neera Tanden would choose?

Somebody ask her for me .. the next time you happen to see her.

» The Battle Line has been Drawn with an Economic Sword

If the Republicans can "primary" a candidate who they view as too moderate .. then, so can the Dems .. despite what Cheri Bustnuts might have to say about it.

Smug DCCC chair Cheri Bustos draws a battle line with an economic sword because she is all about the money (9 April 2019)

Not everybody is about the money like you are, Cheri.

Smug DCCC chair Cheri Bustos trusting in the money to work for her and the Old Guard by starving representatives of the Next Generation (9 April 2019)

You'll see what I mean .. sooner or later. You look so smug here. This is because you are trusting in the money.

What do you think about what Jeremiah wrote here? I thought of this verse when I saw this smug look on your face, and I heard you smugly bragging about your $200 million dollars.

» AOC's Policy Positions have Widespread Support Among the American People

I could not agree more with the things that Anand is saying, and the things that AOC is saying, and the things that JLaw is saying.

Which is why I am citing their comments here. Poll after poll show that an overwhelming majority of Americans agree with them.

Support for the Green New Deal among Registered Voters (Poll taken Dec 2018)

» Money in Politics is the Root Cause of America's Problems for 99% of Americans

Perhaps I should simply note here that, in response to your discussion here .. the root cause of the socioeconomic problems in America today .. are the result of money in politics.

Public opinion means nothing to most of our elected officials because our politicians are beholden to their donors.

You can read all the books you like about progressive vs conservative .. but until you get the money out of politics .. things are only going to get worse for Us the People.

AOC knows what I am talking about (21 March 2019).

AOC the Phenom, Time magazine cover story by Charlotte Alter (21 March 2019)

Over the last 40 years we have had progressive presidents and we have had conservative presidents. And yet, the only constant is that .. (pause for effect) .. the rich get richer while the rest of us just work harder (more productively) for the same wages.

This is because we have a government that is of-the-Rich, by-the-Rich and for-the-Rich.

This is why the wealthiest have increased their share of wealth by 100% (doubled) in the last 40 years, and yet the average American has gone nowhere economically. They are just working harder for the same thing that they earned 40 years ago.

Why is that Steph? Why is America working great, socioeconomically, for the ultra rich .. but for nobody else?
