From the Liberal Ten Commandments, #6

From the Liberal Ten Commandments, #6

Imagine if the United States had an egomaniacal president who thought he was smart enough to drop nuclear bombs here and there without negative consequences. What if you could go back to AD 31 and present the people of Galilee with a new liberal version of the Ten Commandments? How would that affect our culture […]

The silver lining of the Trump presidency . . .

The silver lining of the Trump presidency . . .

The hypocrisy and disingenuousness of conservative Christians has never been more apparent than it is now with their support of everything Donald Trump. First, they voted overwhelmingly for Trump, who is the opposite of the Jesus depicted in the Bible, then they supported Trump when he attempted to take away health care, gave corporate polluters […]

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, […]

The Trump IQ Test Winner!

The Trump IQ Test Winner!

Marty’s photo of the day #2334: As you probably heard, Psycho Don challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test contest. What you probably haven’t heard is that a third contestant entered the contest and won. I’m proud to share with you an exclusive photo of that third contestant and winner! Congratulations Mr. […]

We can make it!

We can make it!

Marty’s photo of the day #2330: I will get back to politics in a bit, but after this last week, we all deserve a cuteness break. In my arms is a baby silver wallaroo—perhaps the most adorable animal in all of Australia. Now that you have this wallaroo in your mind, close your eyes, take […]

Hey Republicans! I know you still insist that Donald Trump isn’t a bigot. . . .

Hey Republicans! I know you still insist that Donald Trump isn’t a bigot. . . .

Hey Republicans! I know you still insist that Donald Trump isn’t a bigot, and that you are not a bigot for voting for him. I also know that anything I write won’t change your mind. Nevertheless, I have to try.   Here’s what Donald Trump tweeted at 5:19 a.m. this morning: “Such poor leadership ability […]

If a Donald Trump . . .

If a Donald Trump . . .

If a Donald Trump tweets in the night, and he doesn’t misspell any words, is he still an incompetent narcissistic psychopath?

Unfortunate last names

Unfortunate last names

While I wait for the editing and cover art to be completed for my new science-fiction political-satire, Time is Irreverent, I have plenty of work to do, running my talent agency. One of those jobs includes updating my list of more than 7,000 college talent buyers. It’s a tedious task, as I have to visit […]

Higher than a . . .

Higher than a . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2291: They’re louder than a Trump self-compliment! Faster than a Trump staff change! Classier than a Trump hat hawked at a flood! Higher than a Russian hooker giving Trump his golden shower! Ladies and gentleman: The Scarlet Macaws! (Photographed in Costa Rica)

The silver lining to the Trump presidency

The silver lining to the Trump presidency

What is the silver lining to the Trump presidency? Religion—especially the Evangelical sect—has lost all credibility and moral authority in American politics. I have nothing against religion, as long as it’s not used as a sledgehammer to make laws and take away the freedoms of others. I also object to religious organizations getting tax deductions. […]

Trump didn’t go rogue!

Trump didn’t go rogue!

It is unacceptable for Trump’s staff, Republican politicians, or Trump voters to say “Trump went rogue” on Tuesday, when he equated Nazi white supremacists with people protesting white supremacists. Trump didn’t go rogue. He went modus operandi! No one who paid enough attention to the presidential campaign to vote should be surprised by even one […]

The BP Butterfly

The BP Butterfly

Marty’s photo of the day #2271: This is one of the most unusual butterflies I have ever photographed. Has BP genetically modified butterflies to advertise their brand? Or instead of BP, is that an 89 on the insect’s wings? If so, what does it mean? Perhaps it’s a warning to us that 89 percent of […]

Better together #2

Better together #2

Like pizza and beer, sometimes quotes are better together: “I’m going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people. We want top of the line professionals.”—Donald Trump (before getting rid of Scaramucci, Priebus, Spicer, Flynn, Manafort, and others) “Look at those hands. Are they small hands?”—Donald Trump (before handing the magnifying glass […]

If . . . (part 10)

If . . . (part 10)

If you like Trump’s idea of teaming up with Putin to form an “impenetrable Cyber Security unit,” you’ll love his idea for a new restaurant franchise: Donald, Donner, & Dahmer’s.

What happened when Trump met Putin?

What happened when Trump met Putin?

The media made a big deal about Donald Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin lasting for 2 hours and 16 minutes, despite being scheduled for only 35 minutes. We may never know what happened behind closed doors. That’s bad. Conversely, no one can prove me wrong, when I guess what happened: Trump: “My handlers say I […]

The Cult of Republicanism

The Cult of Republicanism

A cult is a group of people that shuts out conflicting information and rejects facts in favor of an alternative reality. It’s time to call today’s Republican Party what it is: a cult. The Republican Party hasn’t always been a cult, but you can trace its conversion to one to the late 1980s and the […]

Who knew that being president was so easy?

Who knew that being president was so easy?

Crybaby Trump tweeted this morning: “Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show” Even though it’s an embarrassment to all Americans that our low-rated president regularly gets into Twitter feuds, the media needs to stop getting its […]

If only Libertarian candidates had the brains God gave an animal cracker

If only Libertarian candidates had the brains God gave an animal cracker

One of the major problems with the Libertarian Party is that none of their candidates have the brains God gave an animal cracker. Remember Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, who couldn’t name even one living foreign leader? Well, in the race for U.S. Congress in Montana, the Libertarians have another genius: “President Trump has appointed […]

You don’t want to fund Planned Parenthood? I don’t want to fund the wall!

You don’t want to fund Planned Parenthood? I don’t want to fund the wall!

Republicans prefer to spend money on things like further bloating our military, their damn wall, and tax cuts for the rich (which steals from government services that benefit us all). Democrats prefer to spend money on things like renewable energy, public education, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Planned Parenthood. Why should only Republicans […]

Time for Republicans to take personal responsibility

Time for Republicans to take personal responsibility

Hey Republicans! Now that Donald Trump is doing everything in his power to roll back environmental regulations—just like he said he would before you voted for him—I hope you will take a moment to sit down with your children and/or grandchildren and explain to them that you take personal responsibility for shortening their lives. Depending […]
