About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

Nicknames you really don't want right now: Suspect 1, Suspect 2


If Mitt Romney was President the USA would have started bombing Iran last night.

Just because.

Waiting for the NRA to make a statement about protecting Americans right to carry bombs.

Because that's what I expect of the NRA now.

If Facebook existed during WWII

Very funny stuff but I cant cut and paste any of it.


Thieves Steal Five Tons of Nutella...

In the same town thieves have stolen five tons of Nutella, five tons of coffee and 34,000 cans of energy drinks.


Someone's ready for Coachella this week...

Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan were the leaders of the "Greed is Good" political movement...

in the 1980's enacting laws that gave companies tax breaks to relocate their businesses ultimately decimating domestic manufacturing and leading to the rise of outsourcing that we continue to suffer from today.
So when right wing idiots say "Corporations are people" and "Tax breaks for the rich trickle down" they are repeating the long sewn seeds of bullshit originally spewed by these two morons that they worship even though they fucked up two countries economies for decades.

‘Star Trek’ Phaser Rifle Nabs $231K

The prop weapon created for Star Trek‘s William Shatner was only expected to bring in $50,000 on the auction block. But Saturday’s $231,000 score led a slew of film-related memorabilia sales at Hollywood Legends’ two day auction, Reuters reports. Also sold: The alien survey buggy from Alien snagged $10,625, Christopher Reeve’s Superman IV costume went for $25,000, and Marilyn Monroe’s Some Like It Hot bra fetched $28,125. Even the custom “Black Beauty” car from 2011′s The Green Hornet nabbed $46,875.


Set phaser on 'profitable'.

Led Zeppelin might be getting back together...

but it requires installing a wheelchair ramp on their Stairway To Heaven.

Is This a Pandemic Being Born?

Source: Foreign Policy

Here's how it would happen. Children playing along an urban river bank would spot hundreds of grotesque, bloated pig carcasses bobbing downstream. Hundreds of miles away, angry citizens would protest the rising stench from piles of dead ducks and swans, their rotting bodies collecting by the thousands along river banks. And three unrelated individuals would stagger into three different hospitals, gasping for air. Two would quickly die of severe pneumonia and the third would lay in critical condition in an intensive care unit for many days. Government officials would announce that a previously unknown virus had sickened three people, at least, and killed two of them. And while the world was left to wonder how the pigs, ducks, swans, and people might be connected, the World Health Organization would release deliberately terse statements, offering little insight.

It reads like a movie plot -- I should know, as I was a consultant for Steven Soderbergh's Contagion. But the facts delineated are all true, and have transpired over the last six weeks in China. The events could, indeed, be unrelated, and the new virus, a form of influenza denoted as H7N9, may have already run its course, infecting just three people and killing two.

Or this could be how pandemics begin.

On March 10, residents of China's powerhouse metropolis, Shanghai, noticed some dead pigs floating among garbage flotsam in the city's Huangpu River. The vile carcasses appeared in Shanghai's most important tributary of the mighty Yangtze, a 71-mile river that is edged by the Bund, the city's main tourist area, and serves as the primary source of drinking water and ferry travel for the 23 million residents of the metropolis and its millions of visitors. The vision of a few dead pigs on the surface of the Huangpu was every bit as jarring for local Chinese as porcine carcasses would be for French strolling the Seine, Londoners along the Thames, or New Yorkers looking from the Brooklyn Bridge down on the East River.
