On Being a Millennial Turning 30

I have written two full length books and 160 articles for this website but I walk dogs for a living. Part of this was leaving college in the wake of the financial crash, part of this was refusing to water down my politics to suit an increasingly regressive employment culture, part of this was journalistic […]

It Can And Is Happening Here

I gave a quick talk about Occupy Wall Street to the Malta NY Rotary Club once. A man came up to me afterward. He looked like the aged Buster Keaton of The Railrodder and had made his living before he retired fixing CRT televisions. In the abstract I should have loved this guy. He came […]

This is a dramatization of every debate I’ve ever had on social media

Someone always gets canceled in the end.

Why are Eastern European Women Smarter than Western European Women?

Well, they’re not exactly “smarter” but according to the Economist, Polish, Lithuanian, and Serbian women do go into the sciences at a far higher rate than their counterparts in the West. The writer can’t quite figure out why so they blame it on those evil commies, who have been out of power since 1989 (so […]

An Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi

Dear Nancy, You keep saying now isn’t the time to impeach for reasons that apparently us mere mortals are too simple to understand. Or maybe you’re just bluffing because you don’t actually want to do anything. It can’t be because you’re busy working on some other agenda because all the Democratic party seems to have […]

A list of Very Tall Losers

Over the past few days a video has gone viral. A man named Chris Morgan, who’s all of 4’11” or 5’0″ tall is having a meltdown in a bagel shop. He’s complaining that women won’t date him because of his height. It’s obviously true. Women do care about height. My mother once told me that […]

Lloyd Blankfein is Just a Retired Investor Living on a Pension

I mean seriously.  Do they think we’re all stupid enough to believe their act? Only real difference is that compared to Blankfein, Hyman Roth was a small time gangster. Also, I doubt being on Bernie’s list is quite as dangerous as being on Michael Corleone’s. Oddly enough, like his hero FDR, Bernie is probably the […]

This is Why The French Invented Guillotines

The Sackler family, who made their fortune off of Oxycontin, which is probably the major reason the life expectancy for middle-aged working-class white people has dramatically fallen over the past decade, are almost a perfect example of how the ruling class sees the world. As long as they get their kids into the right schools they […]

The Best Reason to Vote for Bernie Sanders is the People Who Hate Him

Now his campaign has made it official That is why I am proud to announce the modern-day oligarchs who oppose our movement. In the words of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt: “They are unanimous in their hate for me–and I welcome their hatred.” We will overcome their greed and create an economy and a government that […]

Ilhan Omar is my Great Grandmother

I don’t watch television anymore, but yesterday it was hard to miss the clips of right wing  TV commentator Tucker Carlson ranting about Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and the supposed danger she poses to ‘real Americans” that were circulating on the Internet. “Maybe we are importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to […]
