No Ted Cruzing tonight



Stronger Together, Baby!

With all of the great artists that we've lost this year...

It's truly a privilege to have Paul Simon still with us in this world.

Time to get our shit together...

I'm going to put this right here...



Harry's retiring, I can get behind this, no prob.

Time to take the Senate back!

Got my C-SPAN on, got my water...

The delegates on tv look like they're as nutty as a fruit cake, but I actually like fruit cake. It's a happy, fun-loving crazy, not the blind with hatefulness crazy that we saw last week.

The crowd also looks more like the America I know, not the America that thinks that Ozzie and Harriet is the norm.

We're going to get a good show, a positive and optimistic vision of our future under Democratic leadership.

The world doesn't have to be a scary place unless that's how we want it to be.

Time to make a choice.

Let's get this party started.

Trump supporters explained:

You have to break some eggs to make an omelette

Political processes are inherently messy, and although it's pretty messy for us right now, I believe that it's going work out for the best and bring us all closer together in the end.

The people who thought they were hurting us may have just given us the tools to enhance our own unity. Strength of purpose to keep Trump out of the Oval Office will definitely take precedence over everything else, in the aftermath of today.

I'm really looking for our overall message of positivity taking center stage this week in Philly.

And for the record, I love omelettes, they're delicious.

How I'd change the election system, if I had the power...

1. All elections would be publicly funded, with no private association, trade union or corporate donations. However, individuals can contribute, but are limited to $250 to any one candidate during an election cycle. This would effectively end PACS.

2. Automatic voter registration for all citizens at age 18, by making voting a constitutional right. You can still opt out of voting, if you want to.

3. Make election days national holidays and on a Saturday or Sunday.

4. Standardized paper ballots that can also serve as ballots by mail that any registered voter can opt to do instead.

5. Instead of staggering primaries over several months, a single national primary day, as we have for the general election day. Three months before the general, sounds about right.

6. Automatic restoration of voting rights for all ex-offenders who have finished their sentences.

7. A TV and radio station set up to run election ads, free of charge to the candidate's campaigns, where each candidate is allocated an equal share of the air time.

8. End gerrymandering. http://www.endgerrymandering.com



That's pretty much all I can think of right now. If you'd like to dispute my suggestions of make other suggestions of your own, i.e., proportional representation, be my guest.

I think that we can do a way better job of how we're doing this now.



Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo wish you all a happy Sunday

Crushed some mini Heath Bars, sprinkled them on some ice cream...

And ate the pain away.
