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.

"But we do not *strut* ever." WEST WING FLASHBACK

"Leo McGarry: Now, we have laws, and they are difficult and they have to be enforced and it's right that they're enforced. But we do not *strut* ever."

One of my favorite moments in WEST WING ever.
I always thought Leo summed up the "we are here to implement policy and get a job done" attitude the Democratic Party stands for.
There's a lot of strutting and gloating and reveling in victories in 2014 and 2016 on DU right now.
So enjoy your moment, strut if you must but don't count the GOP out.
Every time we think they are down and out they come back like Jason or Freddy Kruger.
Don't take your eye off the ball and GOTV.

Have you called or emailed your Congressional Rep, Senators and the White House to help them stand..

strong against the blackmailing tactics of the GOP?
They need to know you are out there.
They need numbers to make them do the right thing and you and everyone you get to email and call are the numbers.
They are meeting at the White House today so let them know you don't want them to give in to the GOP ransom.

Call now.
Here is a link to the contact numbers for, not only your Representative and Senators, but to every Representative and Senator in the U.S.A.: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/

White House 202-456-1111

Larry Summers in not the Fed Chair because the President and Party leaders are listening to us when we roar.
Roar now.

The USA does negotiate with terrorists...

as long as they are Republicans.

2014 - Democrats better not count their chickens before they are hatched...or else

Don't get cocky folks.
Every time the GOP is on the ropes and vilified and hated by the citizens these fuckers come right back and take over.
After Watergate the GOP was in the tank brand wise and less than 5 years later Reagan started a fucking revolution based on hate and fear that had America fucking standing up to cheer.
After the Clinton Impeachment the same thing happened to the GOP and two years later they won the White House, House and Senate.
You can blame SCOTUS for Bush but how do you explain the Congress?
Do not take anything for granted.
The only thing that matters is GOTV for 2014 like it was 2008.
Got it?
We still have a lot of hard work ahead of us in the next year and in 2016 too.
So please no more of these "We got 'em" threads.
If you think you won already then the GOP will fuck you hard and eat your lunch.
Its on like Donkey Kong so get out there and GOTV!

Looks like the season finale of "Governing Bad" is on tonight.

"There is something evil in our society that we as Americans have to eradicate." Dr. after Navy Yard

What does a trauma center doctor say after treating mass shooting victims?
"I'd like you to put me out of business..."
Well said Doc.

Gun safety is good public policy.

Jimmy Kimmel punked the world with a faked twerking YouTube video this week.

Great, now no one will believe anything on the internet anymore.

iPhones with designer colors? Fuck you Apple, I just painted mine purple.

WAR! Uh, What is it good for?....

Absolutely nothing.

"Shoot the ni**er"


Maine candidate questioned by Secret Service after posting Obama photo labelled ‘shoot the ni**er’

A conservative candidate for Maine town selectman received a visit from the Secret Service after he posted a photo of President Barack Obama on Facebook that was labelled “Shoot the ni**er.”
According to the Bangor Daily News, David Marsters of Sabattus, ME has taken the post down, but remains defiant in the face up the uproar sparked by his remarks.

“(The Secret Service) didn’t see no pictures of Obama with bullet holes in his head,” Marsters told the Daily News. “It’s not a threatening statement, in my opinion. People take it out of context as a threat.” “I didn’t say I was going to shoot the president, or kill — Shoot the ni**er. Shoot the ni**er. — that’s what I said,” he continued. “I’m pissed off at the system, OK? We’re about to lose our benefits because of this asshole.”

Marsters has convinced himself that the Affordable Care Act — also known as “Obamacare” — is going to take away his ill wife’s spousal benefits. In an interview with Daily News reporter Douglas Mcintire, the retired police officer said perhaps he should have chosen his words more carefully, but that he believes the remark was not racist because he insists that he would have said the same thing about former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) had he been elected president.

“I would say, ‘Shoot the ni**er,’ because white people are ni**ers, too,” he insisted, claiming that in his native Massachusetts, the racially charged epithet is applied equally to whites and African-Americans. The would-be selectman insists that Obama is not a native citizen of the U.S. and therefore not a “legal president.” He believes that like-minded citizens of Sabattus will elect him in spite of his controversial statements.
