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.

Politics is a funny business. One week you're on the cover of TIME and the next week you're doing it

an old Milton Berle joke told during Watergate.

Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Todd McKeehan, and Conway Charles LeBleu

These were the ATF federal agents murdered in Waco by the Branch Davidian cult when they arrived with a search warrant.
Will Trump mention them?
I doubt it.

Let's make sure folks remember their names today on Twitter and social media.

Remember what Trump said to police arresting people: "Please, don't be too nice,"

Trump outlined a scenario in which a police officer would be careful not to harm a person they are arresting and instructed officers not to worry about that, saying:

“When you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody. Don't hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”

Watch your head Donny

Tucker Carlson is doing his best to cost the Murdoch's $1.6 Billion dollars to Dominion.

along with his edited footage of J6 he's again claiming the election was stolen etc.
All the false claims again.
Dominion is getting more ammunition every day.

Is there anything you collect that you feel like you're the only one doing it?

For me it's my collection of letter openers.
Mostly mid 20th century of all kinds of styles, materials
some branded
From back when the daily mail was everything and the main communication or business tool for many

I also have a collection of Old Time Radio premium badges and rings
the send away stuff from the 1930s
sad to say I feel old just looking at it all and I've noticed the markets for them are dying off, literally.

I've got a plan to keep Fox News busy for the next three weeks....

I'm a huge Rep. Katherine Clark fan now after this floor speech....


"The historic dysfunction that we are seeing, in the intra-party fight, that the American people have been drawn into, is imperiling our national security, it will imperil the ability of this government to deliver basic services," Clark warned. "It is imperiling our jobs and our responsibility to serve our constituents."

The House is at a stand-still, so there are members that can't provide constituent services to those in their states back home. So, if for example, a veteran needs help navigating his or her benefits and the complexities of the VA, they're left in the dark. For anyone trying to get someone to help them with a misfiled tax return and for a widow lost in how to navigate Social Security, there is no one in to help.

"But it is also entirely predictable. They're failing to convene congress today, but for years, they have failed to deliver the votes for the American people," she said to applause

"When small businesses needed to reopen, and the American people wanted vaccines, they said no," Clark began with a list of things Republicans opposed. "When we capped insulin costs for seniors, at $35 a month, they said no. When we lowered health care costs and premiums for working families, they said no. When we defended the civil rights of LGBTQ+ Americans, they said no. When we protected lives from senseless gun violence, especially in the wake of the horrors of Buffalo and Uvalde, they said no. When we stood up for women and reproductive freedom, they said no. When we brought manufacturing back to America, they said no. When we answered the urgent call to protect our planet and invest in clean energy, and create tens of millions of good-paying jobs, they said no."

She went on to cite equal pay, child care, paid family leave, the fundamental right to vote for every American, and supporting veteran access to healthcare were all "no" votes from Republicans.

"When we defended our democracy, two years ago tomorrow, from a tyrannical president, following the Jan. 6th insurrection, they said no," Clark said. "House Democrats will stand together. We will stand for the American people. It is our job and our responsibility to elect a speaker who stands with them and with great pride, i nominate Hakeem Jeffries."

Imagine you are a Republican political campaign operative/consultant and you have

Trump 2020 and Walker 2022 on your resume.
That's going to look good long term....
