Scientific American — a magazine that endorses no one — endorsed Joe Biden for President

I hope every media outlet is paying attention to this … Earth is traveling through 2020 with smaller mountain ice caps, warmer oceans, a torrid letter run on hurricane names, an American coastline’s slow and inevitable submersion into the Atlantic Ocean, forest infernos that can’t be subdued by dwindling rains, and President Donald Trump picks […]

On Obama’s convention speech last night: what the hell is up with the New York Times?

Too much Hollywood on their minds — and at the worst time.  The New York Times’ editorial judgement sometimes confuses me. And then I remind myself that the newspaper loves to publish Upper-West-Side-White-Liberal-feel-good stories on current events as if each are overhyped movie-of-the-year candidates that focus on people’s personal triumphs, and can be screened only […]

These so-called Coronavirus ‘stimulus’ talks — Congress proves it doesn’t want to see the big picture

Who cares about being strategic WHEN WE HAVE FOOD BANKS? 🙄 Almost exactly a month ago — while admitting that my tarot cards have failed like almost everyone else’s this year, but assuming President Trump still wants to be reelected — I maintained that another tranche of Congress-crafted coronavirus relief is certain.

Turning from bad to worse: Trump wants US hospitals to send coronavirus cases and testing data directly to the White House, bypassing the CDC

Placing data in the hands of an erratic administration means more than politicizing science — it’s downright dangerous. Pardon the fucked-up language I’m using, but Team Trump’s demand for hospitals to send coronavirus data directly to the White House — while bypassing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a data collection point — […]

Irrational rationality: why Trump wants schools open during an out-of-control pandemic

The President will get more people killed before the coronavirus crisis is over In a first-world country that slept its way into an angry pandemic that has shut the doors to more than 60 percent of summer camps, found medical and other essential workers scrambling for a persistent shortage of personal protective equipment, and is […]

Herman Cain has the shucky-ducky coronavirus? A hard head leads to a soft behind …

“First we make our choices. Then our choices make us.” — Anne Frank Hearing that one-time GOP Presidential candidate, former Fed board possibility and Jefe de Pizza Herman Cain being hospitalized for COVID-19 didn’t surprise me much. So, my immediate thought recalled the tweet Cain sent from from the cull’rd section of Trump’s June 20 […]

For the record: why I quickly called ‘B***s**t’ on Trump’s ‘increased testing, more coronavirus cases’ story

Trump’s lies during the pandemic point to a cruel endgame As fears rise about the recent spike in coronavirus cases and US health officials believe time is running out to get this disease under control, I think it’s time to address President Donald Trump’s sustained meme that coronavirus infections have increased in America because the […]
