We see you VT. Legalizing weed and making it so workers can live 👍🏻
These people are vile
The Harlem Shake internet meme is more than four years old and involves dancing stupidly when the beat drops during an electronic dance song. Pizzagate is a more recent conspiracy theory alleging that Democratic-aligned elites ran a pedophilia ring out of the basement of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria….
Translation – Making rich people wealthier again! Destroying the social safety net! Gutting benefits to the working class to provide a tax cut for myself and wealthy friends again!
If you want to directly help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, donating to American Red Cross is not the best way to do that. I will post links in the comment section of reliable places you can donate to that will go directly to helping the victims of Harvey.
If you know other places to donate that I haven’t included please comment the link below.

Sorry I haven’t been posting more, making memes, or writing analysis papers lately. Lately I have been very busy working on local politics and preparing to run for office. Some comments on local politics
1) it appears most local politicians are totally devoid of ideology. They are only partisan in the fact that they have relationships within parties and rely on politics for their livelihoods. Many people owe their careers and big salaries to having the right friends locally. This makes them fear outsiders
2) it is next to impossible to know who your allies are. From what I can tell alliances are constantly shifting, people use one another to advance their cause. When you will help someone move ahead they are your friend, when you won’t help them they will stab you in the back
3) politics and personality collide. Some people who I respect politically are absolute scum bags personally. Some people who are very nice people are ass backwards politically.
4) the parties don’t want people like us there, but their bases do. When I stand up in meetings and speak honestly about problems, people in the crowd clap and applaud me. People know we have problems and they’re tired of people sugar coating.
I suggest everyone get involved and start speaking out. Go to local meetings, town council hearing, public hearings, speak out against these people and let it be know we are watching!
Bill Maher normalizing Senator Ben Sasse and making him appear like a reasonable person is much more more damaging to our country than him saying “n*gger”.
Ben Sasse is a hard lined theocrat from a religious sect called “dominionists”. Dominionists believe the US should be governed as a theocracy based on “Biblical Law”, which is the white man version of sharia – think Handmaidens Tale. He doesn’t believe in climate change, worked under George W drafting the infamous “torture memos” to justify the use of torture, and wants to repeal workers rights. He is sick
This is an extremely dangerous person, and Bill Maher made him look not only normal, but sensible. Only next to bill Maher’s arrogance and racism could this man be seen as sensible. Just because Ben Sasse didn’t support trump doesn’t make him a decent person or politician. His objections of trump stem from the fact trump isn’t a religious zealot. Bill Maher has been giving these psychopaths a platform for too long and making them seem normal to his liberal followers.
I am not surprised Bill said the n word on tv, I’m sure he uses it all the time off air. Bill is a bigot, always has been. He’s also a sexist xenophobe, but he’s one of the very few liberals who calls democrats and republicans out on their shit, which I’m guessing is why he’s so popular. I’m not sure why his racism comes as a surprise to anyone after years of bad jokes about black neighborhoods, Muslims, and Mexican gardeners this was par for the course.
“It’s in the bosses’ interests to keep your anger directed downward, at the poor people who are just trying to get by, like you, rather than at the rich assholes who consume almost everything we produce and give next to nothing for it.”
Jens Rushing, like so many people, took to Facebook to rant about something. Rushing, a paramedic, wrote an angry post about fast food workers winning a $15/hr wage that has since gone viral. But…
Nobody loves women like Trump!
Donald Trump has been accused of damaging the prospects of female workers by signing an executive order rolling back Obama-era protections for women in the workplace. The US President last week revoked the 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order, which President Barack Obama put in place to ensure…
If I were making an argument for Medicare For All in the United States of America here is what I would say “The Facts are the Facts, all other developed countries run some form of Universal Healthcare that is paid for through Taxation, they all spend less per-capita than what the United States does and they cover their Citizens from cradle to grave with Basic Healthcare, in other developed countries no person goes bankrupt through medical Bills, The United States has Medicare and has had it since 1965 though all citizens pay into it it only covers those who are over 65, Medicare should be expanded to all therefore covering all Americans with their healthcare needs, This has many advantages 1. There would be no more medical bankruptencies, 2. People would not have to worry about not having Health Insurance, 3. It would take the burden of Health Insurance of Buisness and Consumers spurring more consumer spending which the US Economy is reliant on, Four: There would be a massive reduction of paper work as Medicare runs at a 3% overhead, while Private insurance runs at about a 30% overhead, it also takes away the money to CEOs and Shareholders, the money saved would go to actual care, 5: It would make Doctors and Medical Specialists works much simpler as they would not have to fight with Insurance companies over claims, in recent polls 58% of the US electorate would like Medicare For All and that is without anyone truly pushing for it, If Medicare For All was truly understood by every US Citizen, I truly believe it would pass.
