Be like Jason330 – Register as a Democrat by May 25

In a fit of rage after the disastrous Presidential election, I changed my party affiliation to “Green Party.” That was my little impotent protest against the stupid DCCC, craven corporate owned “Democrats” like Tom Carper, and the diabolically inept and shit-assed Hillary Clinton campaign.

As of about two minutes ago, I am back to being a Democrat because a much better protest against the horrible Democratic Party is to make it better by voting in primary elections. SO…fuck you Tom Carper, you want to ignore your constituents? Here is my primary vote for Kerri Harris. Fuck you, shit-ass Professional Democrats – here is my primary vote for Chris Johnson.

Filed in National by on May 21, 2018 12 Comments

Margaret Atwood, most famous for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” summed up gender relations succinctly when she said, “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” And schoolkids are afraid that when those laughed-at schoolmates take their revenge, they’ll take lots of bystanders with them, as the Texas […]

The GOP takes the blue pill. Will America?

The GOP takes the blue pill.  Will America?

In the Matrix, Neo is offered an out.

After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth.

The blue pill is an affirmative decision to remain in pleasant fantasy world. The red pill is an affirmative choice to live in a difficult and troubling reality.

By continuing with Trump beyond the point where he has “crossed over into applying overt presidential pressure on the Justice Department to do his bidding” the GOP is an affirmative decision to remain in an anti-constitutional fantasy world, in which America is ruled by a President, not governed by duly elected officials.

I hope so, they deserve it.  This band entranced all of us at the Arden Gild Hall a couple of months back.  I love booking shows where the audience experiences the genuine thrill of discovery. Which they did in Arden. Oh, and everybody made money!  Anyway, the booker for the Kennett Flash was there, and […]

Guns everywhere, all the time

This sad situation in Middletown could have been even sadder if the young man in question followed his bad decsion to bring a gun into the school with a worse decsion to pull the trigger.

Moore is believed to have thrown a bottle striking another female student at the end of a verbal altercation before another male student confronted him, said state police.

The ink is barely dry on the Supreme Court’s ruling that states can legalize sports betting and the racinos have already announced plans to begin taking bets next month. Lest anyone think this alleviates the gambling barons’ begging for tax relief from the General Assembly, Denis McGlynn of Dover […]

Why was Trump sucking up to Putin from day one?

“Trump’s primary interest in running for president was not originally to actually win either the nomination or the the presidency. He spent his campaign basically auditioning for Vladimir Putin in the hope that he’d be able to put his name on the tallest tower in Europe.” I’ve only grabbed a couple of sentences, because you […]
