One of the loftiest goals for the Democratic Party has been to flip Texas blue. Or perhaps “take it back” would be more accurate since it was Democratic for over a century before W. Bush put his carpet bagging ass in the Governor’s mansion. They wanted it bad for Hillary in 2016, for Beto in… Read More »
“Damn, how did Trump get more votes than last time? How did he do so well?” I’m not sure an incumbent President losing by the biggest margin since Herbert Hoover is really “doing well” by any objective measure, but I understand the sentiment: how did so many people vote for an impeached, incompetent, traitorous criminal… Read More »
Tommy Tuberville unleashes his wildest attack ad yet

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 »
Alabama Liberal wants you to ask him a question about literally anything…
AL details his life-long struggle against Coastsplaining–and how most of the issues coastal liberals talk about (from immigration to abortion to guns to income inequality) actually affect “flyover country” more directly. Then, I propose that Trickle Down Economics got its earliest start in Plantation Economics.
I explain why Atlanta has the airport (hub of Delta Airlines), the facilities (last American city to host a Summer Olympics), cost, weather, space, transit routes, film production (3rd only to NY and LA), racial diversity, home prices, and perfect location to host Amazon’s HQ2
