About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

Parties on Memorial Day Weekend will lead to funerals for the 4th of July

sad but it's just math and science.

Is Memorial Day Weekend the experiment that will lead to 4th of July getting shut down?

This weekend many are out and about around the country.
Masks are hit or miss depending on your area.
Incubation is 14 days so two weeks from now if we see giant spikes of infections, and then in the weeks following more deaths, will folks be ready to get serious about this again by 4th of July?

If Trump had to take any medication White House staff would have to crush it up and hide it in his

pudding without telling him about it.
Like I do with my dog.

God must be a screenwriter in Los Angeles. Someone just told him his second act needs a twist

How about an earthquake?

"During these difficult times..."

“During these difficult times…”
I keep seeing ads on TV refer to these “difficult times” and hearing people talking about wanting things to return to normal.
I think for most people “return to normal” means going back to work, the kids go back to school, going to the ballpark, the movies, or a concert.
Then I think what “normal” really means in America.
If return to normal means going back to 59 percent of American families living paycheck to paycheck,
If return to normal means 130 Americans die every day from opioid overdoses again,
If return to normal means people can go bankrupt because they got sick, and millions can’t afford healthcare, or medical insurance,
If return to normal means ignoring the homeless crisis in this country affecting almost 600,000 people,
If return to normal means having 40,000 gun deaths each year again,
If return to normal means continuing failed public policies like prohibition,
If return to normal means ceding our societal responsibilities to for-profit prisons,
If return to normal means letting a political party suppress the votes of citizens,
If return to normal means increasing the military budget while 1 out of 6 kids go to bed hungry,
If return to normal means ignoring climate change, pollution, and destroying the oceans,
If return to normal means accepting wage inequality, gender inequality, and racial inequality,
If return to normal means all this, then we need to come up with a “new normal” because the “times” have been “difficult” my whole life.
The American people deserve better than normal again. They deserve progress. Now more than ever.

This is what you tell all of the "Hey people die from the flu every year, this isn't bad" folks

Yes people die from the flu every year.
Thousands do.
The flu is bad and we have tools to fight it
That's why you get a flu shot.
Imagine the worst flu ever and there being no vaccine for it.
That's where we are now.
Then you tell them to take the apples and oranges they are trying to compare and shove them up their ass where their brains are.
