Pennsylvania spent 2 years redesigning our driver's licenses and photo ID's and they're STILL not compliant with Federal regulations??? Despite enhanced security features, the new cards will not be compliant with the Real ID federal standards implemented after 9/11 and will be available in Pennsylvania in 2019. How much did...

Pointless and cruel. While not a full reversal of Obama's historic Cuba rapprochement, Trump's recast U.S. policy hews closer to the hard line espoused by Cuban-American Republicans who derided Obama's 2014 policy as a capitulation. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was instrumental in drafting Trump's changes, with help from Miami Rep.... Continue reading

I made a pasta, white bean, spinach and mushroom one-pot meal for Meatless Monday. The spinach came from the garden, and there were hardly any leftovers. Success! Continue reading

This place is foul. Before I get to the incredible nastiness of this place, some background: This place sits where the old Tokyo Sushi Buffet used to be, next to Best Buy on McKnight Road, and the Tokyo was great for sushi. There was a massive u-shaped buffet, with sushi... Continue reading

Things just got really interesting. The Justice Department appointed a special counsel Wednesday to investigate possible coordination between Trump associates and Russian officials — a clear signal to the White House that federal investigators will aggressively pursue the matter despite the president’s insistence that there was no “collusion’’ with the...

What would it take for Republican politicians to finally turn on, or even gently criticize, the current president? For context, here’s an example of righteous fury one Republican congressman levied at President Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama. “There’s no way any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,” said...

Looks like the ally Trump screwed by blabbing to the Russians was Israel. Continue reading

I remember reading way back when that the Republican party can survive a Trump loss, but they'll never survive a Trump win. Its looking increasingly likely to me that the GOP is determined to go down with the Trump ship. If these week's revelations about Trump sharing highly secretive intel... Continue reading

I put "writes"in quotations because its longer than 140 characters and uses words no one has ever seen him write or heard him utter, and its a hilarious collection of lies and puffery. But what else would you expect? The comments section is comedy gold! Continue reading

Because of course they would! Republican legislators want to keep popular Obamacare provisions for themselves and their staff. House Republicans appear to have included a provision that exempts Members of Congress and their staff from their latest health care plan. The new Republican amendment, introduced Tuesday night, would allow states... Continue reading

You thought that Trump and the Republicans actually cared about you. You were wrong. I'm very, very sorry and saddened that you're getting shafted by the politicians you trusted, but we tried to warn you, and you didn't listen. Continue reading

When conservatives were aghast about how much time President Obama spent playing golf? Well, guess what? For the eighth weekend in a row, President Trump has visited a property that bears his name. He has done so on 21 of the 66 days he has been in office, meaning that... Continue reading

I suppose we should be thankful that Republicans are incompetent and inept, otherwise, they could do real harm. House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We...

Moderate republicans couldn't support the bill because it was too cruel. Teabagger republicans couldn't support the bill because it wasn't cruel enough. Continue reading

ANd yet, Charlie Pierce is still a better writer, on both politics and baseball than Will is.

This may qualify as his laziest column ever. Its basically a synopsis of a fantasy novel that imagines what the US will look like if we don't follow guidelines laid out by The Heritage Foundation or Ayn Rand. He even writes "Atlas, shrugged" in his paper. I rate Will's column... Continue reading

Is there anyone in Trump's orbit who doesn't have some sort of shadowy connection to the Russians? Continue reading

Jeff Sessions is a liar. At his Jan. 10 Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) what he would do if he learned of any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of the 2016 campaign....

These are the assholes who terrorized a child's birthday party in Georgia. Listen to them blubber and whine as they're sent to the slammer! The woman crying, That's not me! That's not me!" Uh, yes, it WAS you. Yes, you DID make a mistake, and now, you will PAY. I... Continue reading
