I get hundreds of comments during Politics Done Right. This one struck me. It was simple, fact-based, and easy to see and understand. The GOP is the party of death.
Fareed Zakaria explains how the death and destruction caused by COVID are manmade, given the speed at which the vaccine was developed. And the GOP is responsible.
It is easy to blame Republican politicians, Right-Wingers, and Evangelicals for COVID vaccine resistance. It is time to assign blame to reporters who lack critical thinking skills.
Many in the GOP attempt to equate the Black Lives Matter protests with the Jan 6th attempted coup. Republican Adam Kinzinger dispels the fraud.
Officer Harry Dunn had the most prescient statement at the Jan 6 Select Committee Hearing where he said one should not have to be considered brave, to tell the truth. But his request to Congress could not be discounted.
A Few Takes
This surveillance video shows the collapse of the condo tower apartments in Surfside near Miami Beach in real-time. I cannot see how there won’t be scores who died.
These 21 Republicans, the ones who always preach law and order and support to those in blue voted against awarding Capitol police the Congressional Gold Medal.
I have stated for a long time that Republican leadership are great at projecting. They are hyped up about critical race theory. Of course, it is them who are trying to change history.
The Cameron Park Fire burned from August to December, obliterating 326 square miles of forest and 469 structures.
People are dying and suffering at an accelerated pace in states with low vaccination rates. Yet CPAC attendees in Dallas applauded when a speaker chortled that Joe Biden would come up short of his 70 percent vaccination goal.
We get a lot of good commentary from listeners of Politics Done Right. Here are some thoughts from one of our YouTube Posse Members after we were discussing men imposing on women issues.
For eight years now, I’ve investigated how Georgia’s Secretaries of State have amp’d up the old Jim Crow tactics against Asian-Americans. Call it, the New Kim Crow.
Our local Kingwood Texas friend, Mike Collier (@CollierForTexas), is ready to kick the failed Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick out of office. Finally, someone who instead of giving away the store to corporate friends will do the bidding for Texas citizens.
A friend/neighbor was walking through the trails in our Kingwood, Texas neighborhood and came across an epithet that clarifies Trumpism & Racism are alive & well in our town.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST: We continue to be led by politicians who are killing many of our loved ones. Local authorities must defy the murderous edicts from the state and the federal government. It must be humanity over capital at once. I try to be civil. But how does one stay civil when those […]
Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo all but called out Texas Governor Greg Abbott in a very diplomatic manner for his failed control of COVID-19 on ABC’s This Week.

Things seem bleak, but it’s that very bleakness that history tells us produces movements to overthrow psychopathic oligarchs
More Americans are seeing through the “freedom” scam & are leaving the Party in droves. How will they market voter suppression as their latest twist on “freedom”? You know they’ll try…
White supremacy, racism & the rest of America subsidizing Red states weren’t just realities in 1787: they’re alive and well today & Hawley and his white supremacist buddies want to keep it that way

Think about it. Our fearless heroes from WaterDefenders.org have arrived, JUST as Californians and others flood into central Texas, JUST as current Austin residents flee for affordability into eastern counties, JUST as eastern counties’ water is mass conveyed to fuel growth along the IH-35 corridor and the Hill Country!
Let me tell you a little story about how we got to this place as energy and water cutoffs are in the air, King Greg Abdicates.

I will admit to be completely surprised by the Houston Chronicle covering the first radio show to stream live from Tranquility Park in Houston Texas for the Occupy Houston Rally. I did not even know they took pictures or interviewed Evan Carroll who has been spending the nights “occupying” even as he works his software […]

It seems like I chose just about the right time to write an article on Wendy Davis. She finds herself under attack not only by the entire Right Wing establishment, but from the traditional media as well. She happens to be the story to balance the myriad of bad acts by Republicans. There is a […]
Nearly 20 years have passed since the last flight of the Concorde, the first supersonic passenger-carrying commercial airplane (or supersonic transport, SST).
