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.

Trump will speak to nation at before meeting to fix Helsinki snafu but here's the challenge

Does he use a sheet with prepared remarks or go off the cuff?
If he reads it off the paper he got spanked so bad by his staff he caved.
if he goes off the cuff then he's just winging it and will dig his hole deeper

Message for all GOP politicains: You're a Russian puppet so show us your strings!

I'm going to ask them all to show me their strings, online, in person etc.
They are all puppets now, unless they impeach the traitor in their midst.

MoMA PS1 Rescinds a Job Offer After Learning Curator Had a Baby

In April 2017, Columbus, who had learned that Parkett would cease publication later that year, was approached by Eleey about applying for the performance curator job at PS1. Columbus, who was five months pregnant, was warned by other women not to talk about her child during the interview process. Columbus claims her decision not to disclose her pregnancy was validated when Eleey complained during the interview that the museum’s previous performance curator was “much less present” after giving birth.

After months of interviews, on August 12, PS1 offered Columbus the job, with a start date of September 11, according to the complaint. Because she was still finishing work with Parkett, Eleey suggested that she work part-time for the first few weeks. “I feel confident we can find a solution for that interim period,” he wrote in an email to Columbus on August 17, the complaint says. When she called him to confirm this plan, Columbus suggested a part-time schedule in September, with full-time hours beginning in October. She also requested a higher salary and asked if she could start by working at home, mentioning that she was still recovering from giving birth on July 28.

“Why didn’t you tell me this two months ago?” Eleey allegedly asked. Columbus says she was surprised he hadn’t noticed that she was pregnant when they met shortly before the birth. Days later, the museum wrote Columbus to express regret that they had not been able to meet her terms and that she had rejected the job offer. When she insisted that she still wanted the job, the museum’s chief operating officer, Jose A. Ortiz, wrote that Columbus’s conversations with Eleey “indicated that you would not be able to perform the job as it was structured,” so the offer was “no longer active.”

“Nothing about the position changed. Nothing about Ms. Columbus’s qualifications for the job changed. The only thing that changed was [the museum’s] awareness of Ms. Columbus’s new baby,” the complaint says. “[Columbus] was denied employment opportunities providing substantial compensation and benefits, entitling her to equitable and monetary relief. She has suffered anxiety, humiliation, distress, inconvenience, and loss of wages due to [the museum’s] actions, entitling her to compensatory damages.”

Hey MoMA PS1, go fuck yourselves!

"Who is more powerful and a stronger leader, you or Putin?" Questions for Trump

Time for the WH Press Corps to put Donny on the spot before the Summit, I mean performance review, next week.
Let's give them a list of really good "feet to the fire" questions here....

Trump's supporters are willing to take an economic hit as long as there are liberal tears flowing

That was the consensus of several articles I read today.
This trade war is directed targeted at the red states by China etc.
They are going to put the hurt on trump's base big time.

Soybeans alone are already taking a hit in the hundreds of millions and the farmers are cool with it as long as we are so angry.

Another article talked about a plant that depended on steel and may have to layoff more hundreds, after just laying off people this week and everyone in the town that didn't lose their job yet was like "I'm cool with it."

Yeah, I've been angry about a lot Trump does but this time the tears running down my face are from laughter.
I'm going to keep laughing too. These people are idiots.

One thing I'm not going to waste my anger on is saving them.
We can focus on the kids taken from their parents, women's rights, civil rights, etc, but red state voters are not on my list.

We'll get around to saving them when we're back in power and fixing the giant economic collapse that the Republicans created, like they do every time they hold power in this country, like we do every time.

Not one. When the Russia case goes before the Supreme Court Trump will have picked TWO of the judges

2 of the 9 judges deciding his case(s).
these judges must recuse themselves from these cases.

I'm done counting on Mueller. It's clear the GOP will do nothing about Trump even if

Mueller drops a huge indictment against Trump for conspiracy and obstruction.

They stole a SCOTUS seat, so why wouldn't they be okay stealing the White House too?
Why would they care about that?

Stealing it all IS their plan.

We have only one shot: winning the House AND Senate this November with the GOP, the Russians and Fox News working together against us.

We are looking at 70 years of social progress going away.

that's what this new justice for Trump means.
This could be the next 50 years look more like the first 50 years of the 20th century.
I am not being hyperbolic here either.

I wonder how Ivanka will look in her SCOTUS robes?
