Trump’s Perfect Lie

Posted by Rob Mania on


The worst part of the Trump presidency might be that the wholesale incarceration of innocent people — including over two thousand children — including nursing babies and developmentally disabled preteens — and subjecting them to trauma that will haunt them and maybe even shorten their entire lives – while putting those children at risk for abuse, including sexual abuse — all with no plan on how to reunite them with their families (phew!) — may NOT be the worst thing that they did. In fact, it may somehow turn out to be the best thing they’ve ever done. Here’s how:

Donald Trump: Clueless Idiot or Amoral Serial Killer?

Posted by Gail Barth on


Many of us are struggling with depression, anxiety, and anger in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. Families have splintered apart, which gives rise to both guilt and a loss of familial support systems. I, myself, have noticed a tenfold increase in my temper, and some days just getting out of bed is hard. But these are mental side effects of having a very bad man foisted on us as, of all things, president. The number of people affected physically by Trump and his fascist governing style is also very concerning. And too often the actions of Trump or the lack thereof have resulted in death, with the potential of more to come. This begs the question: Do we have a serial killer in the Oval Office? There is compelling evidence that we do.

Daughters in the Time of Trump

Posted by Gail Barth on


This blog entry is a bit of a departure for me, but it was prompted by two things: an on-going conversation in the early morning hours with a cousin and a conversation this morning with a friend. Both conversations were about family as it relates to Trump, who seems to consume a lot of the conversation these days.

Gross Stupidity

Posted by Gail Barth on


So, let’s see: thus far we’ve talked about Trump’s lying, his cruelty, his inappropriateness, and his good looks (just wanted to see if you were paying attention). But I don’t think we’ve actually covered the overriding trait that sort of acts as the umbrella covering all things Trump, and that is his complete and utter stupidity. His lying is legendary, his cruelty becomes clearer and greater with each passing day, his inappropriateness ranges from talk of orgies at a Boy Scout gathering all the way to assault and abuse, and his stupidity? Oh, where to begin.

Who is to Blame for our Cruel Immigration Policy?

Posted by Rob Mania on


Although Trump is the target of outrage, particularly on the Left, I have doubts that he acted alone. Trump couldn’t pull this off on his own, he had to have help. I’ve narrowed the list of co-conspirators down to four, and you can help me figure out who to blame.

Evil Presidents

Posted by Gail Barth on


In the relatively short history of America, the country has had its share of leaders who have a reputation as cruel presidents. Andrew Jackson and his Indian Removal Act resulted in the tragic Trail of Tears in which 4,000 Native Americans perished, a true blight on the country’s history. Harry Truman ordered the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, resulting in thousands of deaths; as it turns out, this horrific action, while it did end the war, was probably unnecessary (amazing what history ultimately reveals). William McKinley was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Filipinos. Ronald Reagan refused to acknowledge the growing AIDS epidemic and, consequently, in a too little/too late Ronnie-come-lately way, far too many people died. There are others, of course, but these stand out. It’s not a distinction most leaders would aspire to, of course, and these men did have moments of greatness during their time in office. Jackson was a war hero, a hero of the common folk, and a romantic who loved his wife profoundly. Truman supported the creation of the United Nations, advocated for national healthcare, initiated an aggressive civil rights program which he considered a moral priority, and conceived the Truman Doctrine. Reagan is credited with helping to bring an end to the Cold War.

Snowflake Nation

Posted by Gail Barth on


I’m fascinated by the term ‘snowflake’ as it relates to politics these days. I’ve always been a fan of snowflakes, the fluffy kind that signal the holiday season and gum up my driveway, that is. Unfortunately, now they connote a specific kind of ‘butt-hurt’ person, and attempt to gum up my self-image instead.

Gospel of Trump

Posted by Gail Barth on


This is HUGE, just Uuuge! Just as other lost books of the Bible have turned up out of the blue, thrilling both theologians and historians alike, now yet another lost Gospel has come to light and, as I feel certain that Moses or Jacob or some other famous biblical personage would say if they hadn’t been dead for thousands of years, it’s a beaut. This one is the lost Gospel of Trump. It sheds light on why the current administration in D.C. feels so empowered to do pretty much whatever they want. Seriously, whatever. The evangelicals who have supported Trump from day one are, needless to say, over the moon about this discovery as it validates what their desperation got...

Missouri Waltz

Posted by Gail Barth on


  As a citizen of the State of Missouri, I might be able to stomach listening to the Missouri Waltz once again as of yesterday. Governor Eric Greitens, the man with absolutely no political experience (sound familiar, all you Trumpies out there?) whose main claims to fame were being a former navy seal and looking good in fatigues while blowing things up with a bazooka in his campaign ads, resigned in well-deserved disgrace. No, this was not a liberal conspiracy launched against a God-fearing family values guy. This was, rather, a stinking unpalatable stew cooked up by the now former and still hypocritical governor himself who stands accused of multiple felonies, one involving dark campaign money and misuse of donor...

Sean Hannity Did Not Borrow Your Dishes! (Also, They Were Broken When He Took Them)

Posted by Rob Mania on


There’s an old Jewish joke. You may have heard it before. A man borrows a set of dishes from his neighbor, brings them back broken. The neighbor knocks on the door to ask what’s wrong with him, and the man says, “First of all, I never borrowed those dishes; second, they were in one piece when I gave them back; in fact, when I gave them back to you, they were fine!”

Sean Hannity is now my Jewish neighbor.
