The Failure Of Party Politics

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Robert Frank Funeral, St. Helena, South Carolina 1955     Bit unusual, but why not. I was reading British press earlier, trying to figure out what the fcuk is going on in London two days before March 29, and in an article in the Guardian I saw this comment, and thought it should be saved for posterity. Since the article is/was one of those live updates ones, which tend to get very long, and moreover at the point I

Screw the Pooch

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Jan van Eijk The Arnolfini portrait 1434     I first asked Dr. D. a few years ago if I could turn one one his comments at the Automatic Earth into an essay. The following illustrates why I asked. Not sure he understands why some of his rants stand out while others do not, but they certainly do. Go to the Automatic Earth comments section to figure that one out. He’s there every day. And you’re free to disagree

Can We Lock Up Rachel Maddow Now?

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Yves Klein Leap into the Void 1960   Message to Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Kemala Harris, Tulsi Gabbard and the rest of the crew: you can stop asking for campaign donations, because you no longer stand a chance in the 2020 elections.
