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.

Why should the President put a coin in the meter to buy House Republicans more time?

No coin for you GOP.
Fix it yourselves.


WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Treasury Department will not mint a high-value platinum coin to avert the debt ceiling, according to an official statement from the Obama administration obtained by the Huffington Post on Saturday.

"Neither the Treasury Department nor the Federal Reserve believes that the law can or should be used to facilitate the production of platinum coins for the purpose of avoiding an increase in the debt limit," the statement reads.

Obama has never given any indication that he would be amenable to "the platinum option," but White House spokesman Jay Carney refused to rule it out in a press conference earlier this week.

A 1996 law permits the Treasury to mint platinum coins at any denomination it wishes, irrespective of the amount of platinum used in the coin. A $1 trillion coin could be deposited at the Federal Reserve, giving the Treasury the power to withdraw funds based on this account to meet government obligations. The coin would not grant any new spending powers to the administration, however, and as a result would be unlikely to cause inflation. It would only allow the Obama administration to pay bills already incurred by Congress. Refusing to raise the debt ceiling would prevent the government from making good on its existing commitments...........

SE Cupp doesn't know what "rapid-fire" or Military grade weapons" means

on MSNBC right now.
She wants to haggle over definitions and context?
What a dumbass neocon.

Alex Jones was wrong on CNN. The scenario that he shouted about is 1861, not 1776...

but I don't think he understands the difference.

"I am for a war with Iran if we have to..." Thanks Chris Matthews, now STFU

since you were manipulated by Cheney and his henchmen to get us into a war with Iraq and out Valerie Plame.
Who are you to say if we should go to war with anyone since you will believe anyone?

Now it's okay to be prejudiced against fat people at DU.

I was Juror #4

A fat man as President I don't think so


This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)


What is this idiot's obsession with overweight people.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Tue Jan 8, 2013, 01:57 AM, and the Jury voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: prejudice is evident.
If we replaced the word "fat" with "black", "Asian" or "gay" it would be universally unacceptable, right?
I hope the rest of the jury agrees that discriminatory hate speech not be allowed at DU against heavy people or anyone else.

Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

Since The Mayans were a bust I need to find a new silly, irrelevant group of people....

to scapegoat and pin all the world's problems on.

Hello Kardashians.....

Fine. Cut a deal. Let's see Boehner and the House pass ANYTHING! I'll belive it when I see it....

because that guy is the worst there is at his job and the Teabaggers won't vote for anything.
Fear rules the GOP and any voter for this deal will be primaried by the Baggers and they know it

WTF? Why cave in now?

You are 12 hours away from getting everything back to normal.
Why would the President and Democrats cave in on a deal now?

Sorry Mayans, but you missed by that much. So close...
