The Obama eulogy yesterday

The Obama eulogy yesterday was amazing and beautiful and deep and so moving. Everyone should really take time to listen to it.

I have had many issues with Obama, but man, at times, he is just awesome.

the GOP presidential race and racism

As far as I can tell, not one of the GOP presidential candidates was willing to come out and say the Charleston shooting was racially motivated, even though it obviously was (the shooter said it was!).

So either these candidates can't imagine racism exists, or they are afraid if they mention white on black racism, it will piss off their base. The first possibility is just jaw-droppingly stupid or incredibly ignorant.

The second is absolutely nauseating-- they are essentially enabling more racism.

Either way, their reactions should disqualify them from getting elected.

Have you called your congressional representative about fast track yet?

Do it asap! This is coming down to the wire. And fast track is not just for TPP. There is a host of other bad trade deals on the block.
