THE DAILY COMPLAINT
- Dallas, Texas, United States
- July 22
- Born in Denver, Colorado, 1950s-era capitol of the Beat scene, Gordon Hilgers was exiled to Dallas, Texas, in 1963, and Dallasites were so angry that another 9-year-old Democrat had entered the city that they killed Kennedy. From there, Gordon began writing poems and stories, eventually received a BA degree in newswriting, has written for The Dallas Morning News, despite the fact he was far too Liberal for the likes of William F. Murchison and John Birch, worked as an advocacy journalist and is partly responsible for the City of Dallas' public homeless shelter--where poor people can go to find jobs rather than getting told that because they've forgotten to embrace Jesus that God made them homeless.

Oh, man alive. It is now absolutely apparent that, not only is the Heritage Foundation, a supposedly respectable conservative think-tank, is full of white supremacists, but that they’re actually trying to back-track like Nazi Tiger tanks during the Battle of the Bulge. You k… Read full post »
To tell you the truth, I’d rather be sleeping.
Ever since America learned the truth about the supposedly vaunted Heritage Foundation’s racist tendencies this week, however, I’ve been piss-angry at the conservative movement’s buy-in to its now-obvious ulterior motive: b… Read full post »
This afternoon, I went to my happy place and daydreamed of hedge fund managers and Tea Party leaders all dangling together from light poles in Manhattan on nooses made of concertina wire.
Needless to say, ever since the dumb-and-dumber sequestration, I’ve been daydreaming a lot, especia… Read full post »
A few months ago, I decided it simply isn’t enough to preach to the choir.
After all, I can comment, for example, on Huffington Post articles with abandon, but considering the stakes in our torn and bleeding electorate, I decided it might be necessary to, you know, reach out… Read full post »
Yawn. The great Reince Preibus mea culpa so widely advertised to put a damper on the little hate-bytes brought to us all by CPAC is starting to look like a laughable exercise in futility.
I couldn’t help but ask myself after the 2012 Presidential election returns came in why… Read full post »
Aw, shucks. We’ve all seen the ever-foolish Paul Ryan on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last Sunday, yammering and barking as he typically does about “how important” it is to ultimately destroy Medicare, Social Security and, by extension, the entire social safety net… Read full post »
First, an observation. You can tell if someone has more allegiance to Capitalism than to democracy simply by gauging just how fearful he or she is of Socialism. The reason I’m bringing this up is that Socialism was seen by many in the 19th Century as an implicit part of the… Read full post »
Honestly, after watching how Republicans nationwide tried their best to rig elections to keep mainly black, elderly, young and poor people from voting in important 201 presidential campaign swing states, I really don’t know what to say about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s pungent… Read full post »
As usual, some of us may have the suspicion the commercial media really isn’t doing its job regarding commentary on the dumb-assed sequester, but I’m pretty certain that this most recent of many dysfunctional episodes of the disease called partisanship has somehow gotten under the radar.&… Read full post »
Aside from Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz’s absolutely dumb-headed remarks about Commies at Harvard, perhaps the dumbest thing we in America have got going right now is the Tea Party Caucus’ embrace of the sequester.
Why equate the two stupid phenomena? Because, if any gr… Read full post »
Oh, wouldn’t you just love to be John Hagel facing down two idiots (three if you include Kelly Ayotte but the Republicans don't like women so I won't mention her) in Congressional hearings regarding Obama’s pick for Secretary of Defense? Oddly enough, you might feel like a do/… Read full post »
Here we go again: The so-called Teahadist budget hawks in the U. S. House of Representatives are threatening to shut-down the government in order to get the spending cuts they have deemed necessary for reasons no one has been able to explain.
Of course, because elderly, disabled and extremely… Read full post »
I’ve got a few questions about the plethora of Jewish neoconservatives dog-piling onto Chuck Hagel at the very instant Obama nominates him for the important Secretary of Defense position in the United States government.

You know, all you really have to do is cruise around the web to see just how well the richest one percent of Americans lives. I did that just the other day. Googling “America’s largest homes”, I was greeted by a plethora of disgustingly vain, tasteless, wasteful, audacio… Read full post »
Of course it’s not stunning to realize that what Republicans in Congress want in the fiscal cliff debate is a 25 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors. They’ve been blaming the poor for months and even years for the national debt.
Really. Why should these self-proclaime… Read full post »
If you were paying attention last Friday, you more than likely saw all the little Republican munchkins of Congress showing little elven smiley faces as they skipped down the hallway on their way home for Christmas.
The understory? Apparently the fiscal cliff debate isn’t nearly as… Read full post »
Well, it was just ducky, wasn’t it? Wayne Lapierre of the National Rifle Association made an ass of himself by asserting that the solution to gun violence in America is, of course, more guns. Personally, I was stunned by this statement. While I support the 2nd Amendment, I hav… Read full post »
Don’t say you haven’t been warned, Republicans. Us Progressives and Liberals have been warning and warning and warning you about the “goob Congress” since at least 2010. Last night, with little smiles on their faces, Boehner and his motley gang of semi-illit… Read full post »
I’m sorry, but even an objective look into the utterly insane “fiscal cliff” debate between the President and Congress reveals that Congress is not only cartoonish but full of buffoons.
There’s no other way to put it. The conservative’s strategy of booby-tr… Read full post »
The proposed changes to Social Security rate calculations and Medicare, brought to us courtesy of the inept and incompetent Republican Congress are just another case of the powerful putting the onus of a debt burden on those who have the least power to defend themselves.

Frankly, I am saying tongue-in-cheek, I can’t wait for the upcoming austerity riots. Me? I’m going for The Apple Store and Best Buy. Like rioters in Greece, Spain and London, I’m poor (as are you in relation to the disgustingly wealthy of America), and I&rs… Read full post »
As The Nation rips-off the mask of Grover Norquist’s now-seen-as-fraudulent Americans for Tax Reform, will the commercial media point-out that Norquist and a couple of billionaires are behind this dumb pledge of his? [here is a link to the article: http://www.thenation.com/blog/17… Read full post »
Isn’t it just so cute to watch Republican plutocratic lackeys posturing like silverback gorillas over the terrorist assault on Benghazi?

As the fiscal cliff, as it has been dubbed, nears, the plutocrat pansies, all of them Republicans, continue to stall and stall, even though they’re frightened that the military/industrial complex’s lobbyists are gonna take away their gravy train.

Oh that Grover Norquist. Biggest con man ever produced by American entrepreneurialism. Entrepreneur? He’s the spoiled-brat scion of the Polaroid fortune, has probably never missed a meal in his life and has never had to suffer through the line at MacDonald’s with… Read full post »
