I've been sending emails

to companies advertising on Breitbart.com, and I have had an interesting exchange with a person from CellularOutfitter.com. The email I sent--same one to each advert.--"My family and friends refuse to do business with any company that advertises on Breitbart.com"
The first reply was this:

Thank you for contacting us. Let me help you with your concern!

We are not connected to the site that you have mentioned on your email.

Also, our website only sells cellphone accessories.

Let me know if you need anything else. I am here to help.

I wrote back that they were indeed connected to that site, that their ad was displayed there. I told her that there is an internet movement to pressure, through boycott, supporters of the racist, misogynistic Breitbart, and I invited her to check for herself.

Today she wrote back:

Thank you for your reply.

I will have this email be forwarded to a higher department so they can look at it carefully.

Again, thank you so much.

Such a small victory, but I'm very proud of myself. I don't even care if their ad continues to appear on Breitbart; at least one person at CellularOutfitters.com knows and cares enough to ask questions.

I'm willing to give the press a pass

on their behavior at that first "press conference" because they were apparently not expecting Trump's behavior, but if those reporters have any integrity at all, they will leave en masse the next time Trump refuses to allow one of their colleagues to ask a question, and then boycott his "press conferences" until he apologizes for his treatment of the press.

They/we cannot allow this guy to abuse our free press. Plus I think they should boycott his press conferences anyway because he does not really answer any questions. Let him continue to preach to Breitbart and America One or whatever the hell the name of that thing is, and let the legitimate press go ahead and do their jobs without having to pay any attention to his fucking lies.

The ACA offered insurance policies that cover Viagra

Why wasn't that the first area of attack, instead of birth control for women?

Oh yeah. They're Republicans. Never mind.

Doonesbury's Roland B. Hedley Jr.'s twitter!!!!


A question for Sen. Sessions

and every other nominee for a cabinet position:

Did you ever, in your life, use the N-word?

They will have to answer honestly because for sure someone from their past will rat them out if they don't. I think a positive answer to that question should be an absolute disqualifier.

It just occurred to me

that Trump himself probably thinks Obamacare and the ACA are two different things, and that is why he's in such a hurry to ditch Obamacare, because he thinks people will still have the ACA. I bet you ten million dollars that that's what he thinks.

Poor hardworking miners, their troubles are great

After their pathetically jubilant support of Donald Trump and his promises to bring back coal mining jobs, miners are slowly wakening to the fact that a repeal of ACA will make it much more difficult for them to receive black lung benefits and treatment. Before 2009, the burden was on the miners to prove that their carbonized lungs were the result of working in the mines. With the Byrd amendment to the ACA, miners diagnosed with black lung who have worked 15 years or more in the mines are assumed to have contracted their disease through their work, a common-sense provision that greatly eased obtaining benefits. Buyer's remorse, the most common side-effect of voting against your own best interests. Poor miners.
