A gang of ne're do wells tried to kick my butt at the supermarket tonight



But I didn't let them. Walked out of there with my butt unkicked, you betcha!

Bad Dad Lavoy Finicum (With Apologies to Jim Croce)

Well the East side State of Oregon
Is the baddest part of the region
And if you go out there
You better just beware
Of a man named Lavoy Finicum

Now Lavoy more than trouble
You see he stand 'bout five foot four
All the Eastside ladies call him "Tarpman Lover"
The rest call him "Attention Whore"

And it's bad dad Lavoy Finicum
The baddest tarp wrangler in the whole damned region
Badder than a IBS
And meaner than a pissed off paramecium

Now Lavoy he a farmer
As a foster parent he'd pose
And he like to wave his gubmint checks
In front of everybody's nose
He got a custom F-100
He got an 9-Milly Pistol too
All his kids are working on his farm for free
And the tarp he wears is blue

And it's bad dad Lavoy Finicum
The baddest tarp wrangler in the whole damned region
Badder than a IBS
And meaner than a pissed off paramecium

Tuesday less than a week ago
Lavoy he's ridin' to Burns
The road was blocked by the FBI
His truck skid and hit some snow
And it almost overturned
He jumped out screaming and waving his arms
"Shoot me now, I wanna die."
Well the trouble it then came upon him
'Cause Lavoy Finicum learned a lesson
'Bout messin' with the FBI

And it's bad dad Lavoy Finicum
The baddest tarp wrangler in the whole damned region
Badder than a IBS
And meaner than a pissed off paramecium

Well Lavoy once confronted
Went grabbing for his gun
Well the FBI was not amused
And made him Swiss Cheese just for fun

And it's bad dad Lavoy Finicum
The baddest tarp wrangler in the whole damned region
Badder than a IBS
And meaner than a pissed off paramecium

Just Like Republicans.

They're here! So long, suckers!





"Please take me with you!"

Good Job!

Rest in Power, Fish

Although I've stepped back from the primary circus

It's quite evident to me that the true test of this huge revival, some may say that's inspired by Bernie's candidacy, is by how much it also inspires more people to supplant Republicans with Democrats in Congress and in state and local races.

In spite of gerrymandering, the movement, if it's sufficient enough, should shift back to the left in swing states. Unless we see something like this we shouldn't be so cocky as to say that our nominee (whosoever that will be) will convince people who normal vote for Republicans to vote for a Democrat.

For one, in order to get these GOP voters and independents to vote for Democrats we'd have to have a candidate and an overall message that resonates with them. It's going to have to be done in a way that breaks through the negative, nativist ideological wall of right wing identical political messaging.

Also, it needs to counter much of this country's obsessive need to throw a wrench in the works. That will be the hardest part of all, because we're saddled with an overall political infrastructure that lends too much leverage to the side that says 'No!'

The sides that obstructs can shift the balance of power to itself. That's why it's easier to kill legislation than it is too pass it, yet once it is passed, it's even harder to kill it.

So, what kind of momentum are we building here and how far will it work to our favor? It's imperative that we shift the balance. The natural process would indicate that a shift leftward is due very soon. However, we all known that this imbalance of power is not very natural at all, due to the overwhelming influence of billionaires and millionaires.

If the nominee breaks this cycle by influencing more people to vote and to vote for our side, it has the consequence of taking power away from the other side as well. It's important that this happens in order to break the strong influence of the obstructionist right. Otherwise, we'll have another Democratic president hamstrung from the git-go.

To spawn on the other side, of course.
