    Bad Chart Thursday: Trump Argues for More Americans to Suffer and Die

    Donald Trump has an impressively horrific record for avoidable death tolls. At last count, American fatalities in Puerto Rico post-Hurricane Maria have surpassed 3,000, many of them preventable had the Trump administration not done everything in its power to block and delay life-saving aid to the island. For context, the death toll for Hurricane Katrina was 1,833; Hurricane Sandy, 285;…

    California Senate Says Show Us Your Taxes or Stay Off Our Ballot

    The California State Senate voted Thursday to pass a bill that tells Trump to put up or STFU. The Bill approved in a 27-10 vote, (all 10 republicans voted no – shocking to literally no-one) now goes to Governor Newsom for his approval and signature. Republicans are trying to spin the story by saying that this would be bad for…

    Bad Chart Thursday: Crime-Fighting Border Walls Cause Cancer

    The justification for the border wall that Donald Trump wants to build at the US-Mexico border is that the wall would reduce crime. Though it’s well established that the immigrant crime rate is much lower than that of native-born Americans, and evidence suggests that immigrant-friendly cities tend to experience a lower crime rate than other urban areas, Trump and his…

    Bad Chart Thursday: The Unbearable Whiteness of Being a Trump Voter

    Did you know that people of color are responsible for electing Trump? It’s true . . . if you lump people of color with white women. Just as falling out of chairs is a leading cause of death in the U.S. when grouped with cancer. Beanbags should clearly be mandatory. This blatantly misleading logic is the conclusion of yet another…

    The Great Escape and Away We Go

    Art is the great escape and I need an escape. I’ve had enough of Trump and his budget cuts to science, the elderly, the arts, the humanities, kid’s school lunches, the environment, meals on wheels, the list goes on.

    Wake Me Up When Impeachment Begins

    I sat up until about 3 am last night trying to think of a way to illustrate the repeal and replacement plan for the ACA health care in the United States. It’s so ridiculous and unfair to the people who need heath care most. Costs will go from $1,700 up to $14,000 a year for people over 64 who make…

    This Is Not Normal

    One of the messages that activists tried to warn everyone about before Trump took office was that when an authoritarian or fascist government takes control of a democracy, things will, in the very beginning, seem incredibly wrong, but as time goes by a normalization of events and atrocities happens. We are 50+ days into a new presidency and that normalization…
