AL attempts to offer up the Big Question: how can Sanders’s fans say it’s rigged against Bernie when he’s getting unprecedented treatment while not being a Democrat? …And has there ever before been a case where someone refused to pay dues to an organization while demanding to lead it?
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.
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 Americans NEED to believe Hillary ran a bad campaign because they can’t accept the appeal of Trump’s “minority-majority” fear-mongering
“Oh great, Tom Perez won DNC Chair, same old, same old.” “Tom Perez is another corporate centrist!” “What do you call a party that does the same thing over and over again and expects a different results? The Democratic Party.” “Goodbye Democrats, I’m going third party! Demexit!” We heard all this and a lot more… Read More »
In the week since Trump pulled off the most shocking Presidential victory since Harry Truman beat Dewey, the finger has been pointing in dozens of different directions at the same time with the deafening question “Who’s to blame?” And the answers are so varied, I’m beginning to wonder if secretly I’m to blame for it. Hillary’s campaign… Read More »
We break-down the strange myth that Donald Trump is an outsider or that 2016 is the Year of The Outsider with mega-wealthy candidates like Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Trump–who collects politicians Vito Corleone-style “like so many pennies in my pocket.” We recap the RNC, the running mate selections for both campaigns, wonder why the… Read More »
In the conclusion to our trilogy, we ask “Do People Even Want Small Government?” and take aim at Libertarians. Do Libertarians care that a “fair tax” would destroy your economy? Is Trickle Down Economics really just Plantation Economics? Why cut government jobs when contractors usually cost more? Plus, making the Alabamian case for why state’s… Read More »
In the first part of our “conservative trilogy” (looking at social, military, and fiscal), we wonder if social conservatives are over or merely in a lull? How does Trump—a twice-divorced “New York Values” foul mouth who can’t quote Bible passages—change social conservativism? Is it a good sign that in only 8 years the social battles… Read More »
It’s our first “Bernie only” episode and we wonder if he’ll be the next Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, etc. (lots of R-named ego-independents) and if there’s a link between mortality-fears and running for president. [Original title of episode “Save Us From Old Men Promising Revolution.”] Also discussed is if Bernie is a “political… Read More »
