"It's a fascist statement"

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/its-a-fascist-statement-trump-swipes-back-at-pelosi-over-charges-of-criminal-conduct/ar-AACSWTz?ocid=ientp

So now, pointing out criminal behavior is "fascist."

Well, the Republicans should know. They've fully embraced that ideology.

Buttigieg on the rise

Buttigieg is polling well in Iowa, while Biden is slipping.

Just signed up for my first-ever political rally. :)

MoveOn's "Impeach Trump" event, next Saturday in Vancouver, WA.

Woo!

A modern day Caligula?

From Wikipedia:

"...cruelty, sadism, extravagance, and sexual perversion, presenting him as an insane tyrant. While the reliability of these sources is questionable, it is known that during his brief reign, Caligula worked to increase the unconstrained personal power of the emperor, as opposed to countervailing powers within the principate. He directed much of his attention to ambitious construction projects and luxurious dwellings for himself...."

Sounds vaguely familiar....

NY to pass bill allowing state to prosecute those with presidential pardons

"New York is one signature away from allowing prosecutors to pursue state charges against presidential associates who have received federal pardons.

The Democratic-controlled state assembly on Tuesday passed a bill 90-52 allowing the state-level prosecution of people pardoned of federal crimes, provided that they worked for or were related to the president at the time of the pardon."

This is good.

So I guess I'm supposed to introduce myself

now that I've made 10 posts. This reminds me of the 1990 SNL episode where Tom Hanks is inducted into the "5-Timers' Club." http://snl.wikia.com/wiki/Five-Timers_Club

I am a former Army sergeant, a telecommunications troubleshooter who helped create the military Internet system in Europe. After my service, I was a computer programmer and designer of applications that enabled PNC Bank to acquire LIHTC (Low Income Housing Tax Credit) development deals, helping poverty-level people attain homes. I am proud of both accomplishments.

I am currently dying. I won't be here very long. But I have some things to say before I go.

I have been a Democrat since voting for Clinton against Bush. I am today opposed entirely to the GOP.

I am also an avid UFO conspiracist.

So that's me.
