Trump Tees Up a New Type of Coup: In Plain Sight Donald Trump is laying the groundwork for a coup attempt in plain sight. Defying tradition, Trump is still refusing to concede the election since the Associated Press and other media organizations called the race in favor of Joe Biden on Saturday, November 7.

When a Country Reeling from Crisis Turns to an Aging Father Figure If the American people rise up and overthrow this corrupt and moribund government and replace it with one that serves our needs, and we somehow manage to avoid the despotism that often follows revolution, we might emerge better than ever.

President Trump Neither Needs Nor Deserves Our Thoughts and Prayers Republicans, members of the self-proclaimed Party of Personal Responsibility, ought to acknowledge that this man has been asking for this. I'm not talking about karmic retribution for the 200,000+ Americans who died on his watch while he plainly didn't much care. Trump has been cruising for COVID-19 spring, summer and fall. Trump wanted this virus and he got it.

If Biden Loses, This Will Be Why Two crazy old white men with bad hair are in a dead heat in key battleground states like Florida. As one would expect during a normal year -- when the president had not just killed a bunch of voters and made a bunch of others jobless -- the race is tightening.

Immunity From Prosecution or Sentenced to Death How would you feel if getting fired would mean that you would spend the rest of your life in prison? You would do anything to keep working. That's the position in which Donald Trump finds himself.

Like Trump, Would Biden Be a Right-Wing President? Biden supporters say he'd be progressive. Yet his "unity platform" doesn't include a single major policy position endorsed by Bernie Sanders.

NFL, Biden, Harris: Call for Cultural, Political Atonement Atonement doesn't play a frequent role in American politics. Yet it works. After JFK accepted responsibility for the attempted overthrow of the Cuban government at the Bay of Pigs -- his popularity soared.

Did I or Didn't I Have Covid-19? Blundering through Unknowable Truths Though the experts remain officially uncertain whether someone can be reinfected by COVID-19, the evidence appears to say that COVID-19 survivors probably cannot get reinfected to a significant extent.

If Trump Wins, Don't Blame Progressives. This Is on You, Centrists. The corporate conservatives who control the Democratic Party are suffering from cheaters' remorse. Sorry, right wingers. Biden is on you. You made him the presumptive nominee. If Trump wins again, it's your fault. Just as it was last time.

We Need a Centralized Medical System Too We can't pretend to be a first world country until we join the rest of the world by abolishing corporate for-profit healthcare and decouple insurance benefits from employment. But reform without centralization would be incomplete.

Save America, Throw the Landlords Under the Bus 26.5 million Americans have lost their jobs to the national lock-down necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Added to those who were unemployed before the coronavirus crisis, we will soon face jobless numbers equivalent to or greater than those at the height of the Great Depression. What's going to happen to them? More specifically, where will they live?

Don't Worry, Everything Will Get Back to "Normal" The economic lockdown prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a mass unemployment shock, forced countless businesses into bankruptcy and is driving many Americans crazy. But this shall pass. The good old days will be back.

Ruling Classes and Covid-19 The ruling classes will not meet the minimum standard to which we are entitled. Our rulers' failures should be placed in the sharpest possible relief so we can judge them accordingly and take the next logical step, getting rid of them.

Three Things Government Must Do to Avoid Total Collapse Americans don't expect much from their government. But even by the standards of a nation with one of the flimsiest social safety nets in the Western world, the inability and unwillingness of both major political parties to manage and solve the crisis caused by the Corona virus pandemic is shocking.

Think, Don't Hoard: How to Survive the End Times It feels like the end times. A mysterious invisible killer stalks the land. Wild rumors abound. The government is useless. There's no sense that anyone knows anything, much less is in charge. Could America become a failed state?

A Premature Postmortem of the Bernie Sanders Campaign Bernie Sanders has an underlying vulnerability and warmth that his tendency to bellow often covered up. The media had a field day portraying him as a guy who likes to yell a lot. The biggest mistake Sanders made may not have been a mistake at all. He ran inside the Democratic Party. They were never going to let him have the nomination.

Don't Worry, Centrists. Bernie Isn't Radical. Centrist/moderate/Third Way Dems are afraid of Bernie, not because he would lose to Trump or inverse-coattail down-ballot candidates, but because they would lose their longstanding minority control of the party apparatus.
