SHARE Tuesday, March 30, 2021 The GOP's Real Target --the Voting Rights Act

SHARE Thursday, March 18, 2021 Yet Another Armed White Shooter is Alive, Unarmed Blacks Aren't-Explain That?
Robert Aaron Long, the alleged mass shooter in Atlanta, is taken into custody without incident. His non-violent capture is not a fluke, aberration, or an anomaly. We have seen this time and again, a white mass killer guns down multitudes in shopping centers, schools, and in public places, and in almost all cases, they meekly surrender and are arrested.
SHARE Monday, March 15, 2021 When an Apology for Racist and Offensive Rants Is Never Enough

SHARE Tuesday, March 2, 2021 They Just Love to Tell Lebron and Other Black Athletes to Shut Up and Play Ball
If Lebron James had a nickel for every time he's been told to shut up and just stick to dribbling and shooting the ball, he'd never have to collect a penny from the Lakers.

SHARE Monday, February 15, 2021 Nailing the Capitol Terrorists Won't be Easy
Two things are certain about the Capitol terror attack January 6. And one thing isn't. The certainties first. One, Trump will not be charged with incitement to riot.

The biggest question about Marjorie Taylor Greene is not her wacko QAnon, racist, anti-immigrant, seditious, deadly violence laced rants but who put her in Congress in the first place? And why they are likely to keep her there. She won a landslide run-off election in 2020 in Georgia's 14th Congressional District
SHARE Friday, February 5, 2021 The Ghost of FDR in the GOP's Assault on Biden's Stimulus Bill
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was blunt in calling President Biden's big stimulus spending bill nothing but a "poorly-targeted borrowing spree." McConnell simply snatched a page from the GOP's decades long playbook when it comes to the Democrats.
