Other Than the Flag, What Do Republicans Stand for Anymore?

This week, once Trump found out less than ten players from the Super Bowl Champion, Philadelphia Eagles, had accept the Race-Baiter-in-Chief’s invite to the White House, he uninvited them.

I’m Sexist and You’re Racist and that Might be OK

For nearly three years I've been lucky enough to call New Orleans - the most enthralling city I've ever been to - home. In those three years, I've also taken up a new hobby: not letting White New Orleanians pat themselves on the back too hard while talking about how

I'm sorry, World. I know my country and this whole Trump thing is scaring the bajeezus out of you, but I guess that's what an existential crisis looks like from the outside. And to be perfectly honest, it's pretty damn scary watching it here on the inside, too. The fact
