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.

Forget Trump's tweets for a moment, he's just there to sign these horrible bills into law...

A new one just introduced to eliminate EPA filed on Friday Feb 3rd.

School vouchers to destroy public education

Going through the Congress.gov site is a nightmare right now.
Keep up the pressure on them, every second of every day.

Let's be very clear here: The next SCOTUS Associate Justice will also be a receiver of stolen goods.

Specifically, his seat on the Court.

There should be an asterisk next to his name for all time.

No Red State Republicans, I won't be outraged for you now that you're mad.

Heard from some relatives of mine in Pennsylvania. My in laws actually.
Have voted for the GOP forever and Trump this time around.
They just found out their GOP Statehouse and Gov failed them.

Turns out PA is one of several states that have not upgraded their driver's licenses to have the non counterfeit-able holograms on it and they found out they won't be able to get on a plane for trips after next January with their current state issued ID
They would need to buy passports to travel on a domestic flight.
They are older, don't travel much except to fly out here to CA to visit us
They are on fixed incomes so the cost of passports is prohibitive.

They expressed their anger on Facebook and I let them have it.
A GOP state senator wrote and passed a bill that PA would not submit to "federal gubmint" regulations passed after 9/11 so they get what they voted for.
If they were never outraged about folks down south being jobbed out of voting rights with the GOP making them jump through hoops, pay through the nose and try to find an ever dwindling supply of DMV offices because they don't want black people to have ID's that will let them vote why should I, or them, care about your ID problem? It's all connected. All GOP policy at work.

My wife was mad at me and upset because it's her parents but I was like "elections have consequences"
So I was like "we'll buy them passports if we have to but the rest of the state is screwed and fuck them for it."
They don't like it, then they have to stop voting against their own interests with the GOP all the time.
and that's how I feel about the rest of the red states right now too.

Outrage? For you? When you lose your Social Security or get a coupon for your Medicare?
Angry for you? I don't think so.
I'm going to work to protect my blue states and the liberal parts of the country that can fight.
Maybe we can stem the damage that will be done by Trump, Ryan and Co.
You are on your own red state GOP voters. Enjoy that rugged individualism you embrace so much.

Sorry for my liberal brethren in those red states but Trump, Ryan, McConnell told these neighbor suckers of yours what they wanted to do, the suckers voted for them, and now they will do it because Democrats will not obstruct EVERYTHING like the GOP did to Obama.
So America is going to get what it wanted.
God save them all.



Right wing is out there building forts of false equivalence and stocking them with straw men

Seeing lots of it on Facebook today.
"Obama did this to the immigrants too"
"Both parties are the same" bullshit
all of it
Grrrrrrrrr

Trump's Executive Order "banning Muslims" is really a shopping list

It's a list of who the US will invade/go to war with next.
Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen
Pick which one you think Trump and company will trump up a war with....

If I could re-write tonight's SNL cold open it would be Trump and Kellyanne wrestling WWE style

in the Oval Office for possession of Trump's phone.
Linda McMahon is the judge.
Two minutes of physical comedy that ends with Trump winning, he gets his phone and tweets "Judges bad!"

Trump calls for abolishing all judges in 5...4...3...

or at least calling out the judge who issued the stay for being a woman.
Bad Judge tweets for days

Chuck Schumer is making a big tactical mistake with this infrastructure plan he proposed.

There is no way Democrats will ever get ANY credit for anything that happens that's good for America while Trump is President and the GOP is in charge of both Houses of Congress.

If it passes then Trump says "see only I alone could get them to work together! Washington fixed! Swamp drained! I made America great again! All me me me."
and all credit for the jobs and roads fixes WILL go to Trump.
There is no way America understands the nuance here.
If it fails to pass/move forward they just blame tax and spend Democrats again, "There they go again."

Elected Democrats should just obstruct EVERYTHING.
POINT OUT what the GOP and Trump policies and laws are doing that hurts Americans DAILY.
Shout that from the rooftops and every TV news show.
That's IT!

Do NOT help Trump by pointing out the right thing to do.
Let the GOP and Trump pass every bad bill/law after another that hurts average Americans when you can't stop it procedural.
GOP Senators had the balls to put stops on everything they could for the last 8 years.

I hope Democrats realize that's their only action here.
They need to let America get what part of it voted for.

Do not help Trump do the right thing.
It's the wrong thing to do.
See my signature line for the final word here....

CNN wins. They didn't broadcast Spicer's media rants live. The WH reporter came on after

and gave an update about it.
Filtering the bullshit that comes out of this White House is crucial to all news
They knew Spicer wasn't taking questions so it wasn't news.
MSNBC showed the whole thing live and Brian Williams went 'gosh aw shucks' after it.
CNN>MSNBC

Trump to the CIA: "I'm like, a very smart person."

and the CIA folks are like, "We had to come in on a Saturday to listen to this guy brag?"
