Death penalty for drug dealers? Then be consistent and . . .

Death penalty for drug dealers? Then be consistent and . . .

Yesterday Führer Trump aroused his followers by endorsing the death penalty for drug dealers. He suggested that the penalty was appropriate because people die incidentally as a result of the drugs the dealers sell. Okay, but if we’re going to punish people with the death penalty for incidental deaths, we must be consistent and punish […]

Why I’m not watching tonight’s State of the Union Address

Why I’m not watching tonight’s State of the Union Address

I don’t think I’ve missed a State of the Union address in twenty years. But quite frankly, my time is more valuable than another Donald Trump performance. I know what’s going to happen anyway—and you probably do too: 1) Trump will pretend to be sane for the hour or so he speaks. 2) The media […]

Pure Evil!

Pure Evil!

My wife and I, along with 20,000 Montanans, have our insurance through the wonderful Montana Health Co-op. As a result of Donald Trump’s vindictive and sadistic executive order to undermine Obamacare, it appears as if the co-op will have to pull out of the exchange. If 20,000 people in Montana are losing their health insurance, […]

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 […]

Let’s supersize our health care instead

Let’s supersize our health care instead

I read in the newspaper this morning that Republicans don’t think Donald Trump’s proposed massive increase in military spending is enough, and they want to increase it further. So Republicans want to take health care away from millions of Americans to pay for a tax cut for the rich, yet they think we have plenty […]

No matter the vote count, the Republicans lose tonight’s election

No matter the vote count, the Republicans lose tonight’s election

Today, without a doubt, Montana has its most watched election in history. And since Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte chose to body slam, choke, and punch a reporter from the Guardian, a British newspaper, the election is now even huge international news. When I posted on this last night, I was surprise by how many […]

Let me know when it’s safe to come back out

Let me know when it’s safe to come back out

One of the best things about writing my new science fiction comedy novel, Time is Irreverent, was that from Christmas until yesterday, I got to spend 10 to 12 hours a day in a completely different world, with no Donald Trump or greedy Republican politicians. Well, since the villain in my book is an insane […]

Why Republicans can’t write a bill that helps people

Why Republicans can’t write a bill that helps people

To understand why Republicans failed to pass their replacement for Obamacare, all you need to do is look at the Encarta Dictionary definition of conservatism: “Unwillingness or slowness to accept change or new ideas.” Coming up with their own bill meant that Republicans had to be forward-thinking—and that’s just not in their DNA. What a […]

Republican Health Care Tunnel

Republican Health Care Tunnel

Marty’s photo of the day #2119: Step right up folks. The new Republican health care plan is at the end of the tunnel. It’s the best. You’re gonna love it!

Trump and the Republicans are using Christianity to kill

Trump and the Republicans are using Christianity to kill

Let’s see, so far the Trump and Republican agenda includes massively increasing our military spending (so they can kill more people), gutting the EPA and environmental regulations (so the rich can get richer, while killing more people), making it as difficult as possible for women to have an abortion (so those women can die the […]
