We must remember the role the Christian-Right played

We must remember the role the Christian-Right played

After right-wing Christians elected Donald Trump, he promptly pulled America out of the Paris Agreement and gutted our country’s environmental laws, setting himself up to become the most prolific slow-killer of all-time. Trump will also be responsible for thousands of COVID-19 deaths because he put his ego and greed over the lives of his constituents. […]

Thank you Bernie! Now it’s time to go.

Thank you Bernie! Now it’s time to go.

I thank Bernie Sanders for all he has done to bring awareness to so many important issues. I also thank him for successfully pushing the Democratic Party leftward to more liberal thinking. Now I look forward to thanking him for gracefully dropping out of the Democratic primary within the next few days (COVID-19 makes his […]

Doling out revenge as if it were candy

Doling out revenge as if it were candy

Republicans frequently state that they don’t care about Donald Trump’s behavior; they only care about his results. That sounds innocent enough—until you realize that people made similar claims during the reigns of the worst autocrats in history. Even Robert Mugabe had his fans. Where Trump will ultimately rank among the world’s authoritarian rulers is yet […]

Golf is not a sport . . . except here!

Golf is not a sport . . . except here!

Marty’s photo of the day #3174: I’ve never considered golf a sport, because it doesn’t require running, skiing, skating, or catching or hitting a moving object. Instead it’s a game—especially if a slob like Donald Trump can play it and “defeat” someone. Golf is also horrible for the environment, since it requires massive amounts of […]

Trump teaches children that revenge is okay

Trump teaches children that revenge is okay

The Christian-right gets their panties in a twist if two same sex people kiss on television—because “children are watching!” Knowing that, isn’t it ironic that they don’t get upset when their “champion,” Donald Trump, assaults women, calls people derogatory names, goes on a deranged rant at the National Prayer Breakfast, profits off of the presidency, […]

No oral sex for Republicans

No oral sex for Republicans

On February 12, 1999, the vast majority of Republicans voted to convict Bill Clinton in his impeachment trial. His crime: lying about a blow job. On February 5, 2020, every Republican except one voted to acquit Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. His crime: selling out America and withholding aid to an ally for personal […]

Trump Mountain

Trump Mountain

Marty’s photo of the day #3121: Everyone knows that Donald Trump loves having things named after him. Therefore, I propose that Mexico name this geological feature after him. The rocks you see are white, because they are covered with bird guano. What could be more fitting than naming a mountain of shit after the shittiest […]

IMPOTUS and windmills

IMPOTUS and windmills

Marty’s photo of the day #3111: “I know windmills very much. I have studied it better than anybody.”—Donald Trump, IMPOTUS Trump’s latest moronic statement sent me searching through my photos for this picture of my very yellow rental car next to a newly built windmill blade. I took the photo when I performed “Around the […]

What if Mike Pence had an attack of ethics?

What if Mike Pence had an attack of ethics?

Now that Donald Trump has been impeached, reporters in the legitimate media pretty much agree that Republican senators will ignore their oath to “do impartial justice” and quickly acquit the Oval Office Sociopath of his crimes against America. But what if Republican politicians actually believed in the tenets of Christianity rather than just using it […]

L’Arena di Verona

L’Arena di Verona

Marty’s photo of the day #3101: A year ago this week, Deb and I were in Italy. In this photo we are standing in L’Arena di Verona, the fourth largest coliseum in Italy. It was built in the first century, and it’s actually older than the more famous coliseum in Rome. Imagine if such coliseums […]

Who would Jesus mock?

Who would Jesus mock?

On December 4, Melania Trump tweeted: “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.” This was in response to Karlan’s statement that criticized Donald Trump, not Melania’s fragile son […]

Trump and his pathetic search for an adoring crowd

Trump and his pathetic search for an adoring crowd

How insecure is Donald Trump? For the vast majority of his führership, he has hidden from everyday Americans and only made public appearances at his cult rallies, where he knows he can say anything and be worshipped. Then, during the World Series, Little Boy Trumpy got brave and showed up at a game, where he […]

How President Bedbug can pay his $2 million fine

How President Bedbug can pay his $2 million fine

Today Senior Bedbug lost in court and was ordered to pay $2 million to settle the New York State Attorney General’s civil lawsuit against The Donald J. Bedbug Foundation for self-dealing to the Bedbug Crime Family. (Remember when the Bedbug claimed it was the Clinton Foundation, not the Bedbug Foundation that was corrupt?) Since Senior […]

Did Sen. Rand Paul just commit a crime?

Did Sen. Rand Paul just commit a crime?

“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name.”—Sen. Rand Paul at yesterday’s Trump Cult Rally in Kentucky Fact: Federal whistleblower laws protect the identities of people who bring forth accusations of wrongdoing by government officials. That means that Sen. Rand Paul, with Donald Trump nodding and clapping behind him, demanded […]

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

When I think about the Christian church I grew up in and compare it to American Christians of today (at least the conservative ones), it is like night and day. The change can be traced back to the 1980s and Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority.” From there, the unholy alliance between Republicans and conservative Christians took […]

Do we have a Russian asset in the White House?

Do we have a Russian asset in the White House?

With the Trump Administration now forcing the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate themselves in a criminal probe aimed at clearing Russia from their interference with the 2016 election and instead switching the blame to the Democrats, there should be little doubt in any sane person’s mind that Donald Trump is a Russian asset. At […]

Mitt Romney knows something

Mitt Romney knows something

Have you noticed how Mitt Romney has been stepping up his criticism of Donald “The Bedbug” Trump? While pundits speculate a variety of motives from being a patriot to just not liking Trump, I have a different theory: Romney knows something. In fact, he’s reasonably sure that neither the Bedbug nor Mike “The Soulless One” […]

Osprey at work

Osprey at work

Marty’s photo of the day #3031: This is an osprey, carrying some nesting material, or making off with a patch of Donald Trump’s hair. I’m not sure which. (Photographed in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana)

President KKKlueless and why this time it’s different

President KKKlueless and why this time it’s different

Like many of you, I get frustrated that Donald Trump has scandal after scandal and always seems to escape. His cult is very effective at either just not caring or not having the brains God gave an animal cracker. To see for yourself, visit Townhall(dot)com, where at this moment Trump is a saint and the […]

Hey GOP! Karma is a bitch!

Hey GOP! Karma is a bitch!

When the shocking news arrived on Election Night 2016 that Donald Trump won the Electoral College, my wife and I struggled to find something positive about the tragedy. In the end, we both agreed that what happened might be better for the Democrats and Planet Earth in the long-run. Had Hillary Clinton become president, the […]
