There’s Poor, And Then There’s Poor

Here’s one I’d never thought about. To wit, there’s poor, but there’s also poor. Let me explain. Over on Nation of Change’s website there is an interesting article entitled, Yes, deniers, millions of Americans are among the poorest people in the world by Paul Buchheit. In the piece, Buchheit looks at the increasingly large number…

Sympathy For The Devil

To my immense surprise, not to say outright shock, I seem to be feeling a little sorry for Steve Bannon. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I don’t agree with a single word he says. In fact, I think many of his opinions are downright detestable. And, worse, he’s done a lot to legitimize ideas that…

But Can We Trust Them?

Right at the moment, I’m reading Michael Tomasky’s “The Worst Of The Worst” in the New York Review of Books. In it, he quite skillfully reviews David Frum’s Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic and Michael Wolf’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. (By the way, we’ll be doing a review of…

I’m not quite sure how to deal with this one, so bear with me. It may take a bit. Background: People ask me what are the acceptable perimeters for writing for Liberal Resistance. I answer that we are open to almost anything and anyone, so long as it is anti-Trump. You can be a liberal,…

Sith Lords At The White House

Anthony Scaramucci (remember him?) is once more in the news. In a recent interview with William Cohen in Vanity Fair, the Mooch babbled on freely about the Orange Whitehouse and its denizens. It is a tour-de-force in invective. Among his targets is Reince Priebus, whom he calls (get ready) “Rancid Penis.” He also refers to…

Killing The FBI

So the GOP, and more particularly, that part of the GOP which is behind Trump, has more or less openly declared “war” against the FBI. It is has even employed the term war, or at least that’s the word Lou Dobbs used on Fox news a while back. He said, it seems, that the FBI…

Deeper Meaning Of A Golden Shitter

Golden Toilet

By this time, of course, you will have heard all about yesterday’s kerfuffle in which our Orange Headed Duce told the Guggenheim to hustle over to his bedroom a precious van Gogh paining, Landscape with Snow. But, then, the folks at the Gugg responded something along the lines of “No, way, José,” and offered instead…
