About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

This is a US Govt official praising the GODDAMN BERLIN WALL, the symbol of 70 years of oppression and division under the Soviet boot.

In any other administration, this person would be fired immediately and never work in this town again. What an embarrassment these clowns are.

BUSH yesterday:

“I’m optimistic about the future because as you mentioned democracy is self-healing. This is an unsettled period in our country, but it isn't the first time we have had unsettled periods,

Fucking hell, the disconnect.. AND lets us not forget his attacks on democracy...
Democracy is currently on life support and it ain't going to heal itself...

When you break all the rules and you still lose then yep you suck...



Heh
Indeed! LOSERS!

The religious right loons have a new theory on why god 'allowed' Obama to be President...

Stone said that even though Obama “attacked those who believed in God,” it was still “God’s will for him to be president for eight years” because it was during Obama’s administration that same-sex marriage was legalized, which is exactly what Jesus said would happen before he returned.

23 Years a Slave: Restaurant Owner Gets Bullshit Sentence for Enslaving Intellectually Disabled...

...Black Man

A South Carolina restauranteur was sentenced to prison after admitting he used violence, threats, and intimidation to force a black man to work more than 100 hours a week with no pay in a stunning case of throwback slavery.

On Monday, U.S. District Court Judge R. Bryan Harwell sentenced 54-year-old Bobby Paul Edwards to 10 years in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to one count of forced labor, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. Prosecutors say that Edwards, who managed his family’s restaurant, forced Chris Smith, an intellectually disabled black man, to work for free and live in a small room behind the restaurant. Court documents show that Edwards physically abused Smith for at least 17 years, including whipping Smith with a belt, beating him with pots and pans and even burning him with hot grease.

Elizabeth Warren welcomes Michael Bloomberg to the race ... with a tax calculator for billionaires


Welcome to the race, @MikeBloomberg! If you're looking for policy plans that will make a huge difference for working people and which are very popular, start here:
https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1192580948275204097

The tool set Bloomberg’s net worth at $52 billion

After just one more click, the tool responded.

WOW — YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF MONEY!

Your wealth puts you in the top 0.0002% of Americans.

Now you have the opportunity to invest some of it back into our society so everyone has a chance to succeed.

You’d pay $3.079 billion next year under Elizabeth’s wealth tax. This amount, which you likely won’t even feel, will help us invest in education from birth through college and help finance health care for everyone.

Good news - you’ll still be extraordinarily rich! And if history is any guide, if you do nothing other than invest your wealth in the stock market, it’s likely that your wealth will continue to grow.
