And you’re not wrong either, but the deeper issue is that I shouldn’t have to hold my breath and vote for yet another corporatist just because it’s the better of two bad options I’m presented with. I’ll do it but goddamn it makes me even more checked out every single time. Read more

Thank you. You beat me to it. I love Mrs. Obama. She is regal. Smart and sassy. But under that, ‘when they go low, we go high’ junk, I bet that Mr. Obama and her mother, Mrs. Robinson, had to keep her from taking her shoes and earrings off a time or two in order to go to somebody’s ass while living in the White House.

The article misses the point.. there is tons of evidence that ‘ism’s (sex, race, class) all cost.. The issue is the people that engage in these things (most willingly, some unknowingly) don’t care..

Who was it again that has been fighting with white supremacists in the streets these past 4 years (and studying their social media profiles to out them to their employers)? Those progressive nerds calling themselves "Antifa" - that's who

I am in on American Somoa as well. They sent more US military in per capita then anywhere in the US. If that is not a “well they did their part they can be a state” thing then I don’t know what is.

This reminds me of 2018, Kevin De Leon was a rising star in California politics. He is a popular state politician with a story of coming up from nothing to become the head of the state senate. The apex of young California leadership: Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris, Alex Padilla and Kevin de Leon. Read more

Yes times infinity. If I read one more article about how this appointment is going to “change the direction of the court for a decade” I’m going to fucking scream. Assuming the Dems win the POTUS and retake the Senate, go and pack the court. Or pull the right to decide the constitutionality of cases from SCOTUS and Read more
