Andrew Cuomo: The Donald Rumsfeld of his Generation

One of the biggest mistakes the left made during the George W. Bush era was to cede the debate on 9/11 to the far right.

Americans Don’t Care if Biden is Senile

After all, we voted for this guy twice. We voted for a brain addled coke head then put him back in office after the largest terrorist attack in American history. We also put Reagan in office twice but most of you are too young to remember just how senile he was. The real question is […]

The Upper Middle Class versus the Working Class in the Democratic Party

When Bernie Sanders talks about the “one percent” he’s echoing an idea that came out of Occupy Wall Street, the idea that the central political and economic conflict in the United States pits the vast majority of the American people against a tiny elite of billionaires.

Pollution, corrupt, mob-dominated politics, the Rutgers football team, New Jersey doesn’t exactly have a good reputation in the rest of the country.
