The Final Betrayal By The Democratic Party or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Embrace Mass Human Extinction


Bernie dropping out today was not only a betrayal of a movement or even just the betrayal of a country, it is the betrayal of an entire planet.

When the choices are between two leaders whoContinue reading “The Final Betrayal By The Democratic Party or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Embrace Mass Human Extinction”

This is the narrative that the DNC and establishment Democrats are intensely pushing via MSNBC and CNN and other mass media avenues. WhyContinue reading “The Deep & Dangerous Despair of Left-Wing Bernie Bashing”

In today’s American two-Party system, there is no active opposition party to Conservative ideology or an opposition party with a pro-active message (despite the Progressive movement within the Democratic Party and other parties that are not “officially” recognized). I used to watch Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes on MSNBC. But I was so discouraged andContinue reading “America No Longer Has A Viable Opposition Party To Conservative Ideology”
