EXCLUSIVE: MITT ROMNEY OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful By Mike Caccioppoli This is a very exciting day at America The Not So Beautiful as Mitt Romney has chosen this blog to formally announce that he will be running for President in 2016. He told me that he hopes the third time is the charm and that he has learned from his past errors. He wants to explain why he is running and point out what he could do better than President Obama if he is elected President of the United States. But I really don’t want...

RUDY GIULIANI AND PAT LYNCH: NEW YORK’S FINEST COVONES

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful By Mike Caccioppoli How predictable that right wingers would use the tragedy of the assassination of two police officers to go after police brutality protesters and those who use their First Amendment rights to free speech. This is not a surprise ladies and gentlemen because right wingers hate the First Amendment, hate freedom of the press, always have, always will. So they use any opportunity to attack those rights. The worst of the offenders so far are Rudy...

BAD COPS AND USELESS GRAND JURIES

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful By Mike Caccioppoli I’m so tired of writing about this crap. I’m sure you are tired of reading about it. None of us are surprised another grand jury didn’t indict a cop. Grand juries indict 99.9 percent of time. The .1 percent of the time they don’t is because a cop is on trial. The entire grand jury system needs to be scrapped. There is simply no need for it. They do exactly what the prosecutors want. If they want an indictment, they hand it down,...

KILL A BLACK KID AND GET RICH: UNIQUELY AMERICAN

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful December 1, 2014 By Mike Caccioppoli Darren Wilson resigned as a police officer. Why do people think this is some kind of victory? Did you really expect him to go back to work as a Ferguson police officer? Seriously? And why would he bother when he can now make six figures for an interview? This is America folks. Where you can kill a black kid and justified or not (NOT!) you will then become a millionaire through interviews and book deals and film...

THE FIX WAS IN ALL ALONG IN FERGUSON

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful November 25, 2014 By Mike Caccioppoli This is my first reaction to what just happened in Ferguson. My stomach is in knots. Buildings are burning. There are people who have criticized the title of my blog “America The Not So Beautiful.” They wanted something more optimistic, softer. Can you argue with the title now? I mean can you really? We are retreating in this country. As other nations forge ahead, we are back in the 1950’s and 60’s. It’s...

TIME FOR OBAMA TO DECLARE WAR….ON REPUBLICANS

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful November 17, 2014 By Mike Caccioppoli No need to mince words here. Starting with immigration reform President Obama must do what is best for the country and the people who live here and not give a fuck what the Republicans, still very much led by the Tea Party, think about it. After being stymied for six long years by a Congress that did not want the first black President to have a legacy of any kind, he must now give it back to them in a big way. There...

ELECTION 2014: THE LETHAL COMBO OF WEAK DEMS AND DUMB, RACIST AMERICANS

As seen on America The Not So Beautiful November 5, 2014 By Mike Caccioppoli I have been quiet. I let the elections play out without writing inane predictions or coming up with facile “keys to victory” that you see on so many other blogs and media outlets. I let the candidates do what  they felt was necessary to win, and even though I’m a cynic I felt that people wouldn’t want to elect a party that has obstructed every step of the way and that was responsible for the economic...
