Call Your MoC about PASSING COVID-19 FUNDING for the Week of Sunday 1 March 2020


Reading time: 3 minutes
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is back to his narcissism-driven fun and games! He’s trying to gaslight us into believing a pandemic isn’t a pandemic and the sick and dying aren’t the sick and dying. And won’t we all go out and buy stocks again? If not that, let him give the rest of the budget to the billionaire class? It would really help him a lot.

Even the Repubes seem to believe that Congress should mandate the amount spent, where it comes from, and how it’s spent. Do your part to keep them on the straight and narrow: Call your MoC!

Following Trump and Barr into Autocracy, Reviewing Masha Gessen’s “Autocracy: Rules for Survival”


Reading Time: 5 minutes
If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in. It’s like watching one of those slasher horror films, you know what’s going to happen and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. Even though the character is being extremely stupid and doing stuff no one would ever do outside of a movie, you still gotta sit there and watch it.

Call Your MoC about Aide to Puerto Rico for the Week of Sunday 26 January 2020


Reading time: 1.5 minutes
The New Cruelty strikes again! It’s only been two years since Congress allocated disaster relief funds for Puerto Rico’s many natural disasters (two hurricanes) and the Ol’ Pussy Grabber has ALREADY gotten around to releasing them! And, with “helpful” restrictions that make it nearly impossible for the PR gov’t to use the money but allowing him to be able to say he provided it. Ain’t that sweet?

Call your MoC’s and tell them to cut the crap and help the real live Americans living in Puerto Rico.

Also, links to where you can donate.
