The passive-aggressive little brunette was famous for continually moving the ball as soon as Charlie Brown was getting ready to kick. The GOP had perfected this play over the last decade as they've learned to not only pull the ball when Democ...

Apparently, mother nature doesn't want to be left out of all the human born developments of the first month of this new year.

So here we go to a revival of my weekly talking points with the "Atmospheric River Edition":

While the unemployed working class and middle class bravely face local police and imported unregulated militias in the streets to defend the right of life and liberty of Black and Brown men, wealthy and powerful military leaders only whisper about Trump.

The blockbuster story by the magazine "The Atlantic" that describes Trump's disdain for military heroes and rank and file service members has created a stark comparison for anybody with the guts to stomach the truth. While we watch daily videos of people with limited resources risk life and liberty in the series of protests that have overtaken our country, the more powerful seem scared even to raise their voice against a Commander-in-Chie...
