You can’t be a Nazi and a Patriot:

Just so you know, the Nazi’s, the south in the civil war, these people are the opposite of Americans. They stand for everything that we fight against.  You can’t be both, its just that simple.  If you think the Nazi’s or the South had the right idea, you are not an American Patriot.  You have the right to believe whatever you want, but you don’t stand for what this country was funded on.

Or to put it another way, fuck you and fuck your ideology.

These people are morally and mentally bankrupt.  Now is the time to counter attack with out best vision for the future.  Now is the time to introduce universal health care, raise the minimum wage, really go out there and present OUR vision of the future.

Our vision will win elections, but only if we run candidates who truly believe in a better future.

Fucking Fascists:

When did it become Un-American to punch a fucking fascist in the fucking face?

Let me be clear what I am saying here, I don’t think violence solves anything, in fact I don’t think there is such a thing as a heroic war, or a just war, or really any “just” reason to hurt people.  I am not talking about my personal views however, but American culture.

We won world war two! We stopped the Nazi’s! Captain America Punched Hitler!  These used to be giant points of pride for Americans.  Our patriotic violence saved the world!  We were sure of ourselves in a way that future wars lacked.  Vietnam, and Afghanistan, Both Iraq wars, none of these had that purity of purpose that world war two did.  Mostly because we were fighting fascists.  We knew they needed to be stopped, and while we did it with violence then, we still did it.

So why is that when a bunch of cowardly fascist white men get comically stupid Tiki torches and march around trying to pathetically ape ugly messages from our past we don’t all patriotically punch them in their mother fucking faces?

Why is it that when a cowardly white man plows his car into a group of heroic anti-fascist protesters our weak white bread president can’t even condemn it?

Are we the America where Nazi’s fear being punched in the face?  Or are we the America where the wealthy make the rules, and the fascists can walk openly killing whom they please without so much as a peep from the rest of us?

I don’t want to punch Nazi’s in the face, but I want them to live in fear of sharing their views openly.  I want them to know there are consequences for such abhorrent behavior.  They have a bankrupt and empty ideology based on hatred and prejudice.  They have no place in a modern world.  The last time they came to power millions died stopping them.  Are we going to let that happen again in this country?

I sure as shit am not going to let that happen.  Anyone who doesn’t fight against fascists doesn’t get my vote.  If the president wont fight them, he gets impeached.  If big money corporate interests wont fight fascists they don’t get my dollar.  Its that simple, every peaceful and useful measure will be taken to make sure these cowardly fuckers get no quarter in our modern society.

It is only going to get worse for Trump and his ilk from here on out:

But only if we continue to fight. Nothing will happen unless we make it happen. We have to do a lot of voting people out of office, and lot of protesting, and a lot of work to fix the critical issues we are dealing with now.

Don’t give up, we have the bastards on the run.  Now is the time to fight even harder, propose even more radical and Utopian ideas, and to fight even harder for a better future for everyone.

Start Planning For What You Are Going To Do Post Trump:

Humans need a vision to move towards, American’s especially.  We must do the hard work of collectively envisioning a better post Trump world.

Mine goes a little like this, we pass a constitutional amendment that money does not equal speech.  We publicly fun elections, and create independent bodies to draw districts.   We use democracy vouchers, or some other sort of system to put the money and thus the power into individual citizens.  Each person would have a certain amount of vouchers they could give to all politicians in a year.  It would be up to each citizen to spend that voucher money how they felt it would be most usefully used.  The vouchers wouldn’t be good for anything else, and the money for them would come from taxes.

No other money would be allowed in politics. NONE.  Any other money or favors would be considered bribery and punished as such.

From there we would re-regulate the banks, impose a more sensible tax structure on the rich, and use this massive amount of money to go fund social programs for every citizen.  Specifically free college, and universal health care.

We would aggressively fund a movement towards 100% renewable energy, spending trillions to accomplish it as fast as possible, creating millions of new jobs. We would fund this by ending all fossil fuel subsidies, and taxing carbon heavily.   This is paramount to the survival of our planet, and can not be ignored because a few companies are making a lot of money.

From there we would make it illegal to sell arms to any other country, or to give them weapons.  If they want to go to war they can build and operate their own arms companies.  Presidents would be unable to use any military force without a vote from the entire congress, gitmo would be closed.

Once robots take most jobs some sort of Universal basic income would be implemented, or perhaps a communal ownership model where profits are shared to all citizens.

The future can be as bright as we collectively decide to make it.  This is just a small slice of a vision of the future where everyone is taken care of, where everyone is well off, were no one is rich, and no one is poor, but everyone thrives.  On a planet respected, and cared for, and a society that treats people fair and equitably.

I want to live in that world, and I think most others would as well.

Back to the Dumb Mines:

It’s Monday so strap in for another week of scandal, stupid, and sleaze. I personally like to spend my Mondays calling senators and reps and telling them what I would like them to fight for, it feels a whole lot more useful than watching the Trump folks make a mockery of our government.

Just remember, this is not normal, this is not ok. We will be going back to something normal at some point, and we will look back on these times and use them as an example of what happens when money becomes more powerful than people. People are the ultimate power however, and together we will triumph, just keep fighting!

Happy Sunday. I hope you are recharging with family and friends, getting ready for another week of fighting.

Donald Trump is too stupid to not get caught, but that doesn’t mean we can stop fighting, a lot of much smarter, just as horrible people still need to be removed from office. History will judge us based on how we react to these times.

I for one plan on fighting for a bold progressive agenda that will make everyone’s (including the rich) life better.

When your enemy is weak, you attack!:

It might not seem like it, but the ever wilder thrashing that is going on at the white house is a sign of great weakness in our government. Trump can’t lead, the republicans can’t govern, and crucially the democrats wont fight.

But they could be made to fight, by us.  If we could transplant a spine into the democratic party (or just get rid of most of them and replace them with real progressives…), now would be the perfect time to roll out a real positive, utopian, message for the future of America.

$15 minimum wage

100% renewable energy

Ending the wars

Free public college

Universal single payer health care

MONEY OUT OF POLITICS (even if it takes a constitutional amendment)

It’s never been a better time to start fighting for what we stand FOR not just what we are AGAINST.

You can’t fight something with nothing!

Wake up, take action:
It’s important in these troubling times that we not only fight against what we don’t want, but fight for what we do want. If you give a damn, you should be in the business of making a better world, not just for yourself, but for everyone.

As such its good to get into a routine.  Calling your elected congress critter.  Volunteering for causes you enjoy.  Talking to friends and family about what is important to you.  Taking care of yourself.

This is called Utopian thinking, and for too long it was looked at as unrealistic, silly, and a waste of time.  But if you are not working towards Utopian ideals, what are you working towards?  Are you working to keep things shitty?  Are you part of the status quo?  Are you thinking big enough?  Are you stuck in your ways?  Are you part of the problem?

Utopia’s don’t have to be unrealistic, but without Utopian thinking we will never realize any improvement.

Here is a short list of “Utopian” ideas that I think are achievable, and should be fought for.  If your senators and rep are not fighting for these ideas, perhaps its time to get a new one.

15 min wage

100% renewable energy

Universal single payer health care

Rats, Meet Sinking Ship:

Shit is fucked at the white house.  Trump is an abysmal manager, allowing his underlings to fight and fuss and go on TV and make asses of themselves.  He is thrashing, and the oscillations are getting huge.  This thing will tear itself apart soon if this doesn’t stop.

The reason?  Trump is a criminal, and everyone knows it.  He has been money laundering for years, for the mob, for the Russians, for anyone who will give him a loan.  We are going to find out, its in his tax returns, its in his business dealings, its written all over his fucking face.

The only thing we can hope is that they are too busy clawing over one another to get off this sinking boat to do anymore hard to the American people.

No Donnie, these men are cowards.

Fuck the republicans, and fuck John McCain for all the support he has given them over the years, making one right vote after a life time of wrong ones will not absolve you.  I applaud Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins for staying true to some sort of moral principle.

The fight is far from over, now we have to defend against the death from a thousand cuts that they will try to inflict on Obamacare.  The easiest and best solution to this problem is to put in universal medicare for all single payer health care.

The Irony:

These assholes are evil.  By any definition.  They don’t care about others, they are actively working towards hurting them, and for what?  So that rich people can get even richer.  They don’t care if they have to destroy the air the water, or the people, so long as they can make more money.

The problem with these immoral assholes, is that the only true way to beat them, is to be better than them.  We have to gently remove them from office, with votes, and then make the world a better place over their objection, so that everyone can enjoy a better future, even them.

Strategic Distraction:

Are you being investigated for decades of money laundering?  Are you failing at your job?  Did you say a bunch of stupid shit recently?  Might be time for some STRATEGIC DISTRACTION! Throw some red meat to your base, say something horrible, cause a fuss.  Will it work?  No.  Should you do it?  No.  Did you do it anyway?  Fuck yea you did.  Because you’re Donald Trump, and you don’t give a single fuck about anyone but yourself.

Also as an aside, FUCK JOHN McCAIN.  What a fucking waste of air that fucker is.  My last act on the world is not going to be taking health care away from millions, but apparently that is what he wants his to be.
