About Me

I'm a liberal looking to make a difference in politics.

Occupy Wall Street is armed with a time machine and is taking requests.

What do you want changed in the past? Be quick, seating is limited!


Dear free traders: How hard is it for poor, unemployed Americans to go get a job in, say, China?

Since the whole point of offshoring is to help the third world's poor, what do we have for America's poor and unemployed?

Can they go find jobs elsewhere?

Or are workers here uniquely shit out of luck?

If corporations are engaging in a "capital strike"

Perhaps it's time to break this strike. Time to slap some serious taxes in response.

What would FDR do?

We need to eliminate the entire police system in this country and reconstruct from scratch.

We need to get rid of them until we can come up with a system that doesn't encourage rabid psychopaths into their ranks.

An America (temporarily) without police is turning out to be less dangerous than one with the monsters that we have standing over us with their badges and guns.

These guys are just one step up from MS13.

I hope Governor Christie doesn't see this. He might get ideas.


Jordanian parliment member throws shoe, pulls gun on critic on live TV

Talk about must-see TV. In Jordan, a furious TV debate turned into a YouTube moment when a member of parliament threw a shoe and pulled a gun on his rival.s.

Any Republican who is not rich is a loser. A flat out slovenly loser.

These assholes believe in Neo Calvinism and have made it America's de facto religion. Since they believe that the poor only have themselves to blame, let's start cooking them in their own sauce.

The only problem I see in calling them out as losers is that others who are poor may also feel targeted, when that ain't the case.

The case is, Republicans that aren't worth $1 million, are weak. They're weak not because they're poor, but because they subscribe to a belief system whose standards they abjectly fail to meet.

Analogy: If your rule for all of America is that we must come home with our shield, or laying dead on it, and you come home without your shield... that's on you, not the rest of us who don't subscribe to your Spartan bullshit.

Capitalism saved the world.

Capitalism saved us from feudalism.
Capitalism saved us from Communism.
Capitalism saved America from slavery just as surely as abolitionism did.

But most importantly, Capitalism saved us for later.

BTW, later is coming up right about now.

Lesson for the species who'll rise after us*: don't make a deal with a lesser demon to fight a greater demon.

* Any bets who that'll be? The great apes, if they survive? Or the meerkats?

It's going to sting something bad if President Obama beats Robbedme

despite Robbedme having $400 million + in money backing him up.

So, defenders of the use of drones say it saves our troops from harm.

What do they have to say about the innocent civilians who are also killed when a target is subjected to extrajudicial murder?

Let's sloganize the rationales, shall we? I'll start.

"Save an American soldier, who cares if we kill a foreign child?"

Honk if you think Free Trade and globalism is great and protectionism sucks!

You should be proud of Bain Capital. They're sending 200 more American jobs to China. No doubt this will help the people in China.

It sucks for American workers, though. But who cares about them? They can go dig in our fine dumpsters for food when their unemployment and welfare benefits run out.

Oh, wait. The Chinese have less problems putting food on the table than we do. Go, globalism! Go, free trade! Bain Capital is our hero!!!
