In the US, it’s a bizarro battle between the faith skeptics and the knowledge skeptics

bizarro news

By Patrick Devlin With reasonable America reeling from the breathtaking body-blows that the boorish, bigoted, ill prepared and incompetent Donald Trump regime has leveled on our body politic over the past few months, it appears that those who believe that simply de-Donalding the USA will #MAGA may be disappointed to find that the same Republicans whose voting antics brought forth #tRump’s America believe that higher education in general is a threat to our nation. In a poll recently conducted by the Pew Research Center, 58 percent of the respondents who identified as Republican said that higher education hurts our country. […]

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

by Patrick Devlin As the bully-boy coward Donald Trump spoke at a rally at a Christian college on January 20 in Oklahoma, a gang of his middle-aged flabby thugs assaulted audience members who chose to silently protest the public event. Strangely, for this audience of self-proclaimed Christian Trump-thugs, no one mentioned the words of Jesus; “I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” The assaults have now become […]

Won’t back down

Won’t back down

by Patrick Devlin The media has advised us that the real estate salesman candidate for president “won’t back down”. Not yesterday, today or for the foreseeable future. America’s casino condo king will continue to make bogus, bigoted and bizzaro statements – throwing red meat to the slack-jawed and sanctified, the bankrupt and bigoted – the foreclosed upon neo-fascisti. Even when news announcers take a firm tone, the real estate salesman candidate simply won’t back down. His legion of supporters remind that, speaking in generalities as he does and using dog-whistle coded language, the real estate salesman’s shtick doesn’t amount to […]

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

by Patrick Devlin Thank you NSA, for deciding that I cannot have privacy…ever : your fascism is breathtaking. Thank you oligarchs, for decimating the middle class and ending class mobility forever : your greed is stultifying. Thank you industrial farmers, for killing the soil with chemicals : your destroying biodiversity is unceasing. Thank you media moguls, for neutering necessary news and for creating ‘infotainment’ : your selling out democracy is complete. Thank you Christian zealots, for excusing your bigotry by twisting theology : your interpretations justify child killing. Thank you Republicans, for mixing class war, imperial war & religious war […]

The Imitation of Christ is a Public Safety Violation in Ft. Lauderdale

by Patrick Devlin A 90 year old man was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale for violating the city’s new public safety ordinance as he attempted to bring safety to disenfranchised members of the public. Arnold Abbott, a longtime Ft. Lauderdale philanthropist who created the Love Thy Neighbor charity in memory of his wife who passed two decades ago, was arrested (but not handcuffed, according to police officials) along with two local pastors, Dwayne Black and Mark Sims, for threatening public health and safety by ministering to threatened members of the public by providing them with food stuffs needed to keep them […]

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day isn’t International Workers’ Day

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day isn’t International Workers’ Day

by Patrick Devlin A salute to working women and men in America on Labor Day! Even after 50 years of stagnant wages, union-busting, job outsourcing, and the appalling lapdoggery of politicians in both legacy parties who serve the interests of the modern oligarchs – we are obliged to stand with our fellow workers and acknowledge that our work makes our land. And, remember also that it is not to enrich the selfish wealthy that we work…at least that is what Eugene Debs believed. “I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely […]

Unclear on the concept cavalcade continues to corrupt citizens’ consciousness

Unclear on the concept cavalcade continues to corrupt citizens’ consciousness

by Patrick Devlin Ripped from the headlines, the news seems to suggest that rank and file democrats are following their standard bearer’s ‘style’ when it comes to solving some of the more pressing and complex problems that we face togehter as a nation. Its good to know that these followers have appreciated the efforts made by the Obama administration to “set the tone” as we sally forth together to solve these troubling and significant criminal and cultural problems. Democratic leadership acts as anti-equal justice vigilante, taking personal initiative to smash the concept of equal protection under the law with of […]
