Who knows how long this will look so beautiful?

Who knows how long this will look so beautiful?

Marty’s photo of the day #2563: This aerial shot shows the Jago River and Bitty (the hill) in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Several days earlier, Deb and I had camped by the river, climbed to the top of Bitty, and canoed north, 35 miles, to the Arctic Ocean.   Since the creation of the […]

Bigotry in the book promotion industry

Bigotry in the book promotion industry

I expect bigotry from conservative Christians and from the Republican Party, but I have to say that I’m surprised by the bigotry I’ve witnessed in the book promotion business. Books reach the top of the charts in three ways: the author is already a celebrity, everything goes right and the author gets a big publishing […]

Evangelical flimflam men

Evangelical flimflam men

Marty’s photo of the day #2480: “So let me get this straight. . . . Evangelical Christian leaders screamed about immorality and impeachment when Bill Clinton had an affair, yet when Donald Trump has multiple affairs with porn stars and brags about sexually assaulting others they give him a mulligan? Hypocrisy isn’t a strong enough […]

I resolve not to spit in the face . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2394: The Republican-led Senate just passed their tax bill, which is a giveaway to the rich (Jesus’s favorite people) and opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling (because Jesus thinks wilderness looks better covered with oil spills). Consequently, here is my New Year’s Resolution: I resolve not […]

Christian Values Voters

Christian Values Voters

Within a 13 month period, Christian Values Voters will have voted overwhelmingly to elect Donald “The Pussy Grabber” Trump to the presidency, Greg “The Body Slammer” Gianforte to the House of Representatives, and Roy “The Child Molester” Moore to the Senate. I never doubted that those voters had values, but isn’t it nice that they’ve […]

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party is a cult that preys on gullible people and gets them to vote against themselves. That’s why America doesn’t have universal health care, and why so many Republicans still believe that global warming is a hoax. Republican leaders built their cult by pretending to be good Christians and getting the far-right Christian […]

Hey “Christian” Republican voters!

Hey “Christian” Republican voters!

Hey “Christian” Republican voters! You refuse to vote for Democrats, due to your religious belief that they are baby killers, for not forcing pregnant women to give birth. Yet you are perfectly fine voting for Republicans, who are killing our planet with their anti-environment votes; who are obsessed with taking away health care; who look […]

Christian and Muslim terrorists

Christian and Muslim terrorists

On the heels of Republican George W. Bush attacking Iraq based on a lie, the next Republican president, Donald Trump, has threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea. Add to that the Republicans’ denial of global warming, pulling us out of the Paris Agreement, and their determination to take away health care from millions, I am […]

Republicans: What is your moral justification?

Republicans: What is your moral justification?

Hey, Republicans! A few of my Democratic friends have criticized me for being too hard on you. Being a liberal, one of the requirements I put on myself is to be open-minded. That being the case, here is your chance to tell me to shut up. For this discussion, let’s start with some basic facts: […]

Republican cult behavior

Republican cult behavior

When my wife, Deb, ran for the Montana State Senate several years ago, I did exit polling to get a feel for whether or not she would win. It was a rainy day, so it was easy to bundle up and make sure no one would recognize me. When I counted just the people who […]

Why are Muslim killers worse than Christian killers?

Why are Muslim killers worse than Christian killers?

On September 11, 2001, 2,996 people died as a result of a terrorist attack by 19 Muslims. On May 4, 2017, 217 Christian Republican congressmen and women cheered as they signed death warrants for numbers of people that will dwarf the numbers who died in 9/11. They even signed death warrants for people who haven’t […]

The high price Republicans paid for Donald Trump

The high price Republicans paid for Donald Trump

Flash back to the year 2000. George W. Bush became president of the United States with the help of Florida Governor Jeb Bush and a politically motivated, right-leaning Supreme Court. Later George W. Bush would do the worst thing any U.S. president could ever do: he’d lie to start a war. President Obama followed President […]

Jesus talks to Republicans about Trump

Jesus talks to Republicans about Trump

“Hey Republicans! Jesus here. As people who claim to follow me, you should know that I never said anything against abortion or gay marriage, and you certainly should know that I would always support a person’s right NOT to get shot over your childish fascination with guns. Yet you say you can’t vote for Hillary […]

Willfully ignorant hate

Willfully ignorant hate

How habitually angry and uninformed does one have to be to vote Republican? While I will probably never understand why someone would vote against themselves, their children, and their grandchildren, hoping for a pot of gold and the satisfaction of kicking some minority’s ass, I do read their comments under politically-oriented articles to get a […]
