Day 250:

Shit Rolls Down Hill

The rich are at the top of the hill, and those tax cuts, and health care plans are turds rolling down on us. Just remember that next time you go to the polls, if your senator has been in office more than a term or two it might be time to really think hard about if you want to keep them or get someone new. Because the current crop is sucking pretty hard.

Day 208:

Don’t Stop Fighting!:

When your enemy is on the ropes, that is exactly the moment when you punch them in the fucking face. Trump and his ilk are a mess, now is the time to bring out the progressive policies.

We run on them, we win on them, we implement them.

Trump has woken up a lot of people, just ask yourself this, if Hillary was president would be we be taking down all these confederate monuments right now? Would all these people be in the streets? Would this revolution have happened?

Day 181:

The Russian Thing:

Ok, lets take a second and clear up the Russian thing.  It seems pretty clear to me that Trump has been in bed with lets say “Russian mobsters” (I put the quotes because its hard to tell the difference between mobsters and politicians anymore) for decades.

They give him loans, they almost certainly use him to launder money, his ties with them are deep.

They helped him win the election.  They hacked information for him.  They colluded.  The evidence is overwhelming.  At this point they are just daring the American political system to do anything about it.

Here is the real, walk and chew bubble gum moment though.  Can the democrats (or more accurately, will they) succesfully point out all of these very real and very serious crimes, while continuing to focus on fixing the problems we have here?

My gut tells me that they will not for the following reasons.  The current crop of corporate democrats only do what their donors say, these donors are the same folks that run the republican party.  That is why 8 years of Clinton, and 8 years of Obama only made the status quo stronger.  Also why take a chance and fight for something when you can just scream “Russia!” All day?

We must vote out of office all the republicans, and most of the corporate democrats.  And replace them with people who are capable of fighting for medicare for all on Monday, prosecuting collusion on Tuesday, raising the minimum wage on Wednesday etc etc.

Maybe some younger folks?  Some diverse folks?  Some women?  Maybe lets not let our entire government be run by a bunch of corrupt greedy old white people.

This situation will only get worse unless we act.  We have reached a crisis point, act now to save the country, or say goodbye to it.

VOTE!

Day 167:

You thought it would get better, It hasn’t:

Just because you were on vacation for a couple of days doesn’t mean that the evil fuckers in Washington are not back and at it as hard as ever.

Even though we are in dark days, I still see some shining bright hope.  Elizabeth Warren has started to beat the drum for single payer, and others are joining her.  The fight for a living wage is still going strong, the war on drugs is faltering, and all around signs of resistance are growing.  The latest being the fact that nearly every state has refused to comply with Trumps “voter fraud” commission, which is really just a voter suppression effort.

Just remember things are impossible until they happen, this cartoon supervillian in the white house might be just the thing we need to galvanize the US people into political action.  Politicians like Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders will be vital in making sure that action is funneled into peaceful meaningful change, rather than violence and destruction.

Day 153:

There will be days like this:

It was always unlikely that Ossof was going to win in Georgia, its been a solidly red district for 50 years, and I thought his message could have been more progressive.  But he came close, and it ended up being the most expensive house race in the history of this country.  This exposes a bunch of things.  1.  The republicans are in trouble, if they have to spend tens of millions to barely win a house seat in deep red Georgia, and 2 turbo fuck citizens united…what in the blue hell is anyone doing spending tens of millions of dollars on a political race?

Obscene, embarrassing, and stupid.  Our system has become a nightmare of dark money, special interests, and greed.  And NEVER forget, these people give all this money because they expect a return on their investment.  I would wage any sum of money that the winner of this race is now totally beholden to a host of big money interests, and her voting record will show it over the coming term.

Also one last thing, this is a special election, this district is going to have to do this all over again next year…
