What Even One Person Can Do

What Even One Person Can Do

By Dennis Loo (8/5/16)

The New York Times reported August 1, 2016 that only 9% of the American people voted for the major party nominees to be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

I’ll say that again: 9% determined that these two should be the rest of the nation’s choices for POTUS.

Yet despite how small a percentage this is, these two nominees and the two parties dominate the airwaves and print media. The pundits and politicians – even satirists - tell us that we have no other choice but to vote for either Clinton or Trump, if we act politically at all.

This is a myth. The truth is not what appears on the surface.

Be Careful What You Wish For: Is Clinton Your Only Choice?

Be Careful What You Wish For: Is Clinton Your Only Choice?

By Dennis Loo (8/1/16)

Donald Trump just keeps getting wilder and more bizarre. Here's someone who simply can't keep his defective opinions to himself and is unable to resist showing the whole world how "great" he is, revealing in the process how completely uninformed and lacking in some of the most basic, let alone presidential, sense he has. We are witnesses to the spectacle of an out-of-control narcissist who can barely and only sometimes manages to complete a thought and sentence, usually interrupting himself with interjections after interjections. Talk about a short-attention span!

A few days ago, it looked like Clinton in suppressing liberals, in or drawn to the Democrats, or at least in the case of their putative leaders Sanders and Warren, giving Trump a free pass to be the outsider.

Clinton's committed to children? Just as long as they aren't children born in other nations, like the half a million Iraqi children to die under the Clinton sanctions, a price Madeleine Albright has publicly and explicitly called "worth it." 

As for Trump, they're going to have to invent a new term for foot in mouth. Perhaps "little hands" in his mouth?

Sanders and Warren Capitulate; Open Door for Trump

Sanders and Warren Capitulate; Open Door for Trump

By Dennis Loo (7/26/16)

Last night the nation was treated to the spectacle of the Democratic Party's liberal "political revolution" leaders declare victory while cravenly surrendering to the centrist Hillary Clinton crowd. In preaching "togetherness," not only are they folding their tents into Clinton's but the Democrats are neglecting - fatally - to recognize that the nation is indeed divided. These divisions Trump understands very well and will likely beat them because of this myopia. 

Why indeed should anybody who recognizes that the gap between rich and poor, the 1% and the 99%, the bankers' dominance, the demise of privacy and civil liberties, women's reproductive rights, the rise of bigotry and nativism, just about every day another police murder of a black person, mass incarceration, the further destruction of Main Street, thousands killed by Obama's drones, his failure to end GTMO, the TPP, global warming!, multiple wars going on started by the US, et al, have occurred and/or continued and been made worse under a Democratic President?
