The Banality Of Neoliberalism (As Exemplified By The Clintons) And Why Americans Never Saw Its Evil (Until Occupy, Bernie Sanders And Donald Trump Alerted Us)

Few Americans know that in concert with the abominable Newt Gingrich, Clinton was secretly getting ready in 1997 to privatize Social Security, before he got distracted by America’s discovery that when he pulled his stiffie from Monica Lewinsky’s luscious mouth, he splooged presidential pearl jam all over her dress.

David Bowie: An Appreciation Of A Life Of Dazzling Multiplicity

I once met David Bowie in London in 1972. He was wearing a pastel-pink, wide-brimmed, floppy, very girly hat. His face was lightly dusted with powder, his lips shined with a touch of gloss, his eyes sported pale blue eyeliner.

It’s The Morality, Stupid: America As A Criminal Enterprise (Why Aren’t Bush, Cheney, And Lloyd Blankfein In Jail?)

But we do seem to suffer from a deficiency of morality. Witness Trump’s presidential campaign. There is no morality there, only bigotry and fear and bullying and macho posturing and BS. And many Americans have fallen for this BS.

If America And The West Got The Hell Out Of The Middle East, There’d Be No Terrorism. It’s That Simple.

Our meddling in the Middle East created terrorism, and our continued presence there expands it and makes it worse and worse. If we got the hell out of the Middle East, terrorism would have no reason to expand beyond the borders of the Middle East. There would be no more attacks in America, or Britain, or Spain, or France, or anywhere in the West (funny how attacks in Spain stopped once they pulled out of the Middle East).

The Pundits Say Hillary Won, The People Say Bernie Won — WTF Is Going On Here? (And Why Bernie Scares The Establishment Into Pooping Themselves)

When Bernie Sanders says we risk changing from a democracy to an oligarchy, and that regular Americans are working harder for less money, and that most of the new income and wealth is going to the top 1%, he touches a deep chord, that no other politician touches. George W. Bush was the last Republican president we’ll ever have. Never again.

The GOP Debate Horrorshow — When Will Republicans Stop Embarrassing Themselves?

Let me ask: is this what our politics has come to, when a once great party (Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Eisenhower) fields a big bunch of presidential contenders — eleven! — who are all of them such truly stupid and horrible people, they’re unworthy of being humans, let alone politicians?

Donald Trump Is The GOP After Five Drinks — And Proof That The Party Is Dying

Being the populist raging Id of the GOP, and a rich guy that poor crackers want a rich guy to be like, Trump will get nominated before any of the other clown car passengers can get half a chance. Trump is the only life left in the GOP, and his advent, paradoxically, also spells their death. He is giving them life while he is digging their grave. Good for him. The man is doing America a big favor. He’s a great American. Go, Trump, go!

Why Did America Kill Hundreds Of Thousands Of Iraqi Women And Children? Ask Jeb Bush

by Evert Cilliers aka Adam Ash So Jeb Bush gets asked if he would have invaded Iraq “knowing what we know now,” and he flubs his answer. But he got asked the wrong question. The right question to ask Jeb Bush is this: “How dare you run for president when you should be dying of…

Give The Pentagon Budget To The People: A Wish That One Day Will Be Fulfilled

by Evert Cilliers aka Adam Ash Every now and then I think of something crazy. Like why don't we taxpayers sue Walmart for the $6.2 billion we have to supply to their workers in foodstamps and other help because Walmart doesn't pay its employees enough to live on? Or why doesn't Obama, instead of paying…

America’s Big Problem: Our Wages Are Too Damn Low

Nobody gets paid enough in this country. Here’s a statistic that will blow your head right out of your ass: if we were paid by how much we’ve increased our productivity over the last 30 years — in other words, if our wages kept pace with our productivity — the median household in America would, instead of earning just under $50,000 a year, make $92,000 a year.

Suicide: An Act Of Supreme Bravery

You’ve got to be mad brave to whack yourself. Yep, suicide takes a lot of balls. The most courage any human can ever muster. Suicides are the bravest people who ever lived, because they commit the greatest act possible — a deed against actual existence, against their very being.

The Evil That Republicans Do

by Evert Cilliers aka Adam Ash What do these six statements from Republicans have in common? 1. Millionaire rancher Cliven Bundy, whose cattle are on government welfare: “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro. They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never…
