I almost didn’t want to do this for “Silicon Valley” since all the seasons are pretty close together in quality (even the “worst” one is only a B- grade). Most likely, if you enjoyed any of the seasons, you’ll want to watch all the way through–as the real reason to stop will be repetition more… Read More »
“Silicon Valley” has always occupied a weird space in HBO’s roster of shows. HBO has had a high number of “aspirational” bro-comedies about guys trying to “make it big” in increasingly obscure job fields. Of course, I’m talking about the much-heckled “Entourage,” but also the fashion start-up “comedy” “How to Make it in America,” and… Read More »
Alabama Liberal explains why he’s skeptical on Tom Steyer and especially Michael Bloomberg, who seems to think the human train wreck that is Donald Trump and a 2% wealth tax are equally awful.
Now that Kamala Harris is out, only three candidates have a real chance at being the nominee…so why are 16 still running? AL argues that everyone else NEEDS to drop out today.
Throughout Kamala Harris’s campaign, she was plagued by allegations that she has a lousy Civil Rights record–Alabama Liberal tells a personal story to showcase how that’s not true, reveals California’s all-white statewide office holders (which Kamala had to rise the ranks of), and tries to pinpoint the real reason so many Social Justice Warriors were… Read More »
Today brought the devastating news that Senator Kamala Harris (my personal favorite) is ending her campaign for the Presidency. Even though she was part of the 5 candidates who actually had a shot at the nomination (Biden, Buttigieg, Warren, and Sanders being the others), and routinely polled anywhere from 5th to 2nd throughout the entirety… Read More »
Even though 80% of America lives in cities, rural people have as much control over our electorate as they ever have. Republicans obnoxiously answer that the Founding Fathers designed America that way–back when predicting the invention of skyscrapers would’ve gotten you burned at the stake. But now it seems almost obscene that North and South… Read More »
Since we know there are only five candidates with even a remote chance of becoming the Democratic nominee (Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Elizabeth Warren are the main three, with outside chances of Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris), it’s worth it to think about what their administrations would actually look like–perhaps especially Joe Biden. This… Read More »
6:00–Now might be a good time to mention that the top 5 Democratic candidates (Biden, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, and Sanders) have not changed at all in 2018. It might be also be a good time to ask why the fuck nearly 20 other people are still running? 6:02–Disappointingly, the first question is not “Tulsi Gabbard,… Read More »
It’s true that there are only 5 candidates who even have a shot at the nomination (Biden, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Sanders—in that order), and maybe not even that many. BUT the polls have had the same top 5 for pretty much all of 2019, and Iowa’s only 4 months away. For another candidate to get… Read More »
