So I was listening to an interview with Jason Stanley, a Yale professor who wrote a book about How Fascism Works and he was talking about the ten pillars of fascism (spoiler alert: we’re batting a thousand on that score). 

When he got to the propaganda pillar, he made a...

Since the beginning of time, people and the societies they built have said one thing and done another.

Our own country’s past, both distant and more recent, is lousy with examples of excruciating hypocrisy.  Committing near genocide against Native People while claiming...

You know what I think of when I think of Sammy Davis, Jr.?  No, not the Candy Man, Kanye West.  The outcry over the sneezy or the wheezy or the eezy or whatever name he’s answering to today appearing at the White House and doing the equivalent of a verbal soft shoe is...

The fever pitch of hypocrisy has reached a deafening roar.  Layers of lies are being unsheathed as quickly as a tux on prom night.

We enjoy one of the highest standards o...

Talking heads last week went all atwitter over claims that Trump said the word nigger at some point in his past – yeah, like probably that morning when throwing a tantrum over Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claim.

Aside from the fact that nobody besides Ms. Newman, who is h...

So that Trump Chump has come to his senses and rolled back, however slightly, the whole “snatch a baby off its mother’s breast” thing, huh?  Well let us not forget how quickly and horribly things can run amok when the populace is inflamed with the passion of prejudice...

I'm tired of hearing about how the economy is booming.  From the talking heads to that Trump Chump to Wall Street and its grasping minions, all the echo chamber reverberates with shouts that "The Economy is Booming!  The Economy is Booming!"

Of course, the economy...
