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.

I'd give every cent I have to charity if Trudeau would tell Donald that he's building a wall on our

border and America will be paying for it.

PM Trudeau just owned Trump in their opening remarks. Trump barely literate, Trudeau bilingual

smoothness and diplomatic mastery.

Hillary Clinton in New Video Statement: 'The Future Is Female'

"We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly," Clinton says in first video statement since inauguration

Hillary Clinton spoke about the historic Women's March on Washington and women's rights in a new video recorded for the 2017 Makers conference. The video marks the former presidential candidate's first video statement since Donald Trump's inauguration.

"I'm standing here because my grandparents had to do this. Now I have to do this. I'm hoping my kids don't have to do this"

"Despite all the challenges we face, I remain convinced that yes, the future is female," Clinton said. "Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organized a march that galvanized millions of people all over our country and across the world."

The theme of this year's Makers conference, which "shares women's stories and celebrate women's vital roles in the past, present and future of our country," Clinton said, is "Be Bold," and the former Secretary of State elaborated on that theme in her video statement.

"We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly. So please, set an example for every women and girl out there who's worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure," Clinton said.

"And remember, you are the heroes and history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I've said before, I'll say again, never doubt you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and every opportunity in the world."

Thanks, everyone who voted third party for the Super Bowl.

Trump always says he "hopes to get along with Putin" He has talked with him several times now though

so isn't he already getting along with him after 3 phone calls?
The relationship is not hypothetical, it's real now.
Media needs to call him on this.

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

To defund Planned Parenthood

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....
