Thanks to Keith Olbermann for helping me remember some of these. Biden […]

Canadian voters, prepare to work together

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

There’s an election coming, in 2025 or sooner, that needs the attention of Canadian voters. People need to be thinking and talking about what they’re going to do because there’s a giant looming problem. In Canadian history, whenever voters get tired of the Liberals they always vote for the Conservatives. That’s what’s happened every time. […]

Steve Shives’ videos about Star Trek & politics

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web

I’ve mentioned Steve Shives’ videos before here and here and here. He has lots of videos about Star Trek and things of a political nature. He debunks conspiracy theories and has “Five Stupid Things About” all kinds of topics. He’s very articulate, and I agree with him often. Here he discusses some underutilized Star Trek […]

Why conservatives don’t understand TV shows

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web

Steve Shives talks about how conservatives don’t understand the shows they watch (or music they listen to). He demonstrates that conservatives miss the point of All in the Family and The Colbert Report — and sometimes even Star Trek. Why is this?

Here’s David Pakman interviewing Steven Levistky, co-author of Tyranny of the Minority: Why American Democracy Reached the Breaking Point.

A “balanced” viewpoint isn’t right

If you ask Alexa in a certain way if the 2020 American election was stolen, it will answer yes. Alexa is built by Amazon.

Cosplay as a serious person

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web

I like turns of phrases that put 45 in his place. Brian Tyler Cohen has been reporting the truth about US politics on his channel for a long time, and he is very articulate.

Here is a stunning video of a Trumpist named Steve Deace who repeated Trump’s lies on his podcast for years, only to find out now after all this time that they were lies. He realizes that it was a cult. The video is from Meidas Touch: Trump Podcaster REALIZES HE’S IN A CULT during LIVE […]

Stopping oligarghs from interfering in politics

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web

How do you stop oligarghs from interfering in politics? It’s actually quite simple. You pass a law against it — like Ukraine did. And if you think they couldn’t do it in the US, they certainly could — they used to have a law against it too. Thom Hartmann explains: America’s Rich Don’t Want You […]

It’s time to abandon your team

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Most people in the US think they have to vote for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party, although Ross Perot won 19% of the vote in 1992.
