Shit is REAL now, folks. VERY REAL. In addition to my volunteer work on the Bernie Sanders campaign (door-to-door canvassing, among other things), I conducted exit polling on June 7 in local precincts for an independent, non-profit group. Half of my exit polling was done in Pittsburg, California… and there was a huge discrepancy that…
Why is that Paul Walker person getting more press/attention than Nelson Mandela? I’d never even heard of Walker until after he died. And then I find out he’s just some stupid actor who was in a series of stupid action movies. Yeah, it’s sad that he died young… and yeah, apparently he did some humanitarian…
I haven’t yet said much (anything publicly) about the current government shutdown by the GOP side of the House. Mostly because, even considering the insanity perpetrated by American right-wing wackos, it’s downright surreal. It’s also a travesty that a single Republican is still being allowed to serve in Congress rather than having been tried and sentenced for TREASON by the Justice Department. All I can do at this point is laugh… because if I don’t, my head might explode.
So here’s a humorous video that, in pointing out the complete absurdity and nonsense of the situation, sums it up perfectly…
Shame on you Fox News for spreading this lie, misleading the public and inciting your viewers.
Shame on you Reince Priebus, and the Republican National Committee. You’ve done your party and your country a great disservice by remaining silent.
Speaker Boehner, shame on you and every Republican for failing to state that you had in fact received invites that you declined to accept.
Each and every one of you owes the King family, the organizers of this event, and most importantly the American people an apology for the utter lack of respect, and class shown in using the celebration of the greatest uniter of our lifetime to drive a wedge through this already divided country.
When Fear Mongering Wins the Anti-Vaccine Story It’s now been proven that vaccinations have NOTHING to do with autism. The alleged causal nexus was based on a fraud, originated by a deceptive physician (who has since been stripped of his license to practice medicine) and perpetuated by a self-serving former Playboy model. It then rose…
This was a racist killing with a racist cover-up and the right wing’s reaction has been virulently and viciously racist. To understand the depth of the right wing’s racist depravity, all it takes is to consider the very different reaction to this horror had the races of the victim and his killer been reversed.
“…government of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE, for the PEOPLE, shall not perish from the earth.”
Abraham Lincoln would be horrified to know that 150 years hence, corporations would in a legal sense be considered “people,” and that the United States government would be representing only its wealthiest citizens. So many men and women have sacrificed their lives, limbs, and mental health for our freedom. Let’s not allow that to have been for nothing. On this Memorial Day, please think about the importance of overturning ‘Citizens United’ and enacting campaign finance reform, and try to do one little thing to make that happen. Removing money from politics is the only way to ensure a government that is truly of/by/for US, the people.
If ever there was a case FOR abortion… it would have been well acted upon when Mrs. Ryan found out she was preggers with this piece of crap.
Is that offensive? Too bad. Everything this creep stands for and everything he has to say is offensive to me.
