Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Be Scared Of THIS

We are all (legitimately) worried that Trump will try and deport good people and restrict press freedoms and be our most corrupt administration since Nixon.

Got it.

People, you need to keep your eye on the ball.  Yes, Trump is a crypto-authoritarian narcissist.

But Paul Ryan should scare the shit out of you.

Currently, he plans to privatize Medicare.  Yes, one of the most successful programs in our history is on the chopping block, because it gave Ayn Rand the Sads.

Providing the Republicans get rid of the filibuster, we need to get three GOP Senators to block this nightmare.  Here are the best targets: Susan Collins, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski and John McCain, maybe Pat Toomey.  They represent purple states or grey states (states with old people).  It's time to scare the shit out of Granny, folks!
