HBO Documentaries: “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “The Final Year”

Two great documentaries that most political junkies will probably love. Although the subject matter is fairly different (for political docs), there are some overlaps in that both are about honorable civil servants trying–and mostly failing–to do the right thing in the face of a rising wave of political ignorance and hostility. The Final Year…This documentary… Read More »

Movie Reviews: “The Incredibles 2,” “Ocean’s 8,” “Adrift,” “Life of the Party”

Four films that don’t really have a lot in common except that they feature women in prominent roles and that I don’t really love or loathe any of them enough to want to write a several-paragraph full review… The Incredibles 2…Really, truly, completely nowhere near as good as the original. I’ve probably watched the first… Read More »

Movie Reviews: “Solo,” “The Titan,” “Hotel Artemis,” “Upgrade”

Sci-Fi fans have no shortage of options these days, so you might have to be pretty hard up to see these mostly so-so offerings. We’ll move from worst to first… Hotel Artemis…A great example of a movie that shouldn’t exist. This movie isn’t clever, it isn’t original, it isn’t particularly well-constructed nor well-directed nor well-written,… Read More »

Trump’s Fascist Takeover of GOP is Not Surprising

AL explains the key difference in Republicans and Democrats (who focus on the individual above all), and why it’s not that surprising Trump has been able to so thoroughly co-opt the Republican Party (including suck-ass Mitt Romney) or push out Bob Corker, Jeff Flake, John McCain, and Mark Sanford. I also explain how we’re living… Read More »

Worst Deal Ever–At Summit, China & Russia Win Again

AL goes off about Trump’s horrible deal-making, and notices a clear pattern with Trump ripping up the Iran Deal (which led to high gas prices), going tougher on Canada/Europe (which will likely trigger a recession) than China/Russia, and giving North Korea everything they want but asking for little in return. Towards the end, I also… Read More »

Interracial Couples Will Save the World

Those that saw the last video know my son was deteremined to get some face time, so I held him while trying to explain how interracial couples will save the world, and why people who doubt that are full of it since we don’t live in a world where interracial couples are anywhere near 50%,… Read More »

It’s Ok to ONLY Interracially Date

I thought I’d make a video about why people who prefer interracial dating shouldn’t be bullied, and how it’s the last sexual group it’s okay to openly mock, but my son had other plans–crashing the party at about the mid-point where I push back against the notion “too many people interracially date” (often said about… Read More »

12 Most Common Stereotypes About Black Women/White Male Relationships

Note: I actually wrote this for an interracial couples Facebook group many years ago before Alabama Liberal even existed, but since plenty of other people have re-posted in the years since, why not the person who actually wrote it? Since it’s “Loving Day” (an underrated holiday that didn’t even trend on twitter this year), it’s the… Read More »

Jordan Peterson Got Big Because Men Have No Role Models

In this thorough takedown, Alabama Liberal talks about the void for modern men’s role models and what’s driving millennial male anxiety, and how Jordan Peterson dusted off some very dated ideas to fill it. In this wide ranging video, AL explains how the anti-hero media culture and prosperity preaching gave rise to Trump; why (most)… Read More »
