About Me

Don't take what I say too seriously...I'm a dumb-ass.

Time Has Come

Thank you...a short note of appreciation for all of the little cogs that helped bring us to this day

All the people at Justice and Interior and State and other government departments that fought back against the GOPs attempts to dismantle the regulatory agencies of our government; the people that protected the vote during the mid-terms; all the people that stood up and said "No, that's not true," as they told us day was night and night was day.

The liars and the despoilers will now get their time in the barrel...people like Pruitt and DeVos and Prince and Kavanaugh and Manafort and Stone and Corsi, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, ad infinitum. Yeah, Lindsey...you're next.

Chase those crazy baldheads out of town...

Heard an interview of Buffy Sainte-Marie today on NPR

Hadn't heard this song in over forty years and it somehow gave me some hope for these trying times...enjoy.[link:|]

'Bad economic theories that have guided the policies of both parties for more than 30 years'

Food for thought...just want to toss some economic realities into the political conversation. 'Economic policy agenda that necessarily balances the interests of business (the few) versus the interests of labor (the many)' is a losing platform and a recipe for inequality. Article is by Nick Hanauer, Seattle-based venture capitalist.

'Democrats need to stop balancing the economic interests of the top 2 percent against the interests of everyone else and start focusing on the needs of the majoritarian centeróthe 80 percent of families who have been left behind by 40 years of trickle-down economics. Raise wages now. Thatís the kind of pragmatic centrism the majority of Americans truly want, and that our economy needs.'

When are liberals finally going to boycott mainstream media?

It's a simple question, really. Putting aside foreign interference in the elections for a moment, the media is primarily responsible for encouraging Republican insanity and decades of false equivalence. Gump should have been toast after the Access Hollywood tape without the media's active assistance. But this problem isn't just a recent development. They have dictated the topics of discussion and the goalposts set on all public conversations for decades to the detriment of our country. Your thoughts?

Just heard this on NPR regarding guaranteed basic income

'Facebook founder Chris Hughes is Making the Case for a Guaranteed Basic Income'.

Don't know anything about his political views or anything, but to incorrectly paraphrase Winston Groom, Progressive is as Progressive does.

How can I take a news site seriously when they keep chasing me with Prilosec and Symbicort ads

I know this is just a rant about 'another' news site, but acceptable choices for news seem to be shrinking daily. I cut the cable over a year ago, so I rely on the internet for news. I just stopped visiting the **** Post website after what must have been the hundredth time I got slammed with another Pharma ad...you know the type that won't go away even when you scroll away from it? They actually follow you down the page now. I avoid your forced video ads so now you send them chasing after me? I used to respect this site as a news source, but now it's all celebrity news, gossip and big Pharma ads. I'm outta here...
