About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

I'm a huge Rep. Katherine Clark fan now after this floor speech....

&t=4s

"The historic dysfunction that we are seeing, in the intra-party fight, that the American people have been drawn into, is imperiling our national security, it will imperil the ability of this government to deliver basic services," Clark warned. "It is imperiling our jobs and our responsibility to serve our constituents."

The House is at a stand-still, so there are members that can't provide constituent services to those in their states back home. So, if for example, a veteran needs help navigating his or her benefits and the complexities of the VA, they're left in the dark. For anyone trying to get someone to help them with a misfiled tax return and for a widow lost in how to navigate Social Security, there is no one in to help.

"But it is also entirely predictable. They're failing to convene congress today, but for years, they have failed to deliver the votes for the American people," she said to applause

"When small businesses needed to reopen, and the American people wanted vaccines, they said no," Clark began with a list of things Republicans opposed. "When we capped insulin costs for seniors, at $35 a month, they said no. When we lowered health care costs and premiums for working families, they said no. When we defended the civil rights of LGBTQ+ Americans, they said no. When we protected lives from senseless gun violence, especially in the wake of the horrors of Buffalo and Uvalde, they said no. When we stood up for women and reproductive freedom, they said no. When we brought manufacturing back to America, they said no. When we answered the urgent call to protect our planet and invest in clean energy, and create tens of millions of good-paying jobs, they said no."

She went on to cite equal pay, child care, paid family leave, the fundamental right to vote for every American, and supporting veteran access to healthcare were all "no" votes from Republicans.

"When we defended our democracy, two years ago tomorrow, from a tyrannical president, following the Jan. 6th insurrection, they said no," Clark said. "House Democrats will stand together. We will stand for the American people. It is our job and our responsibility to elect a speaker who stands with them and with great pride, i nominate Hakeem Jeffries."

Imagine you are a Republican political campaign operative/consultant and you have

Trump 2020 and Walker 2022 on your resume.
That's going to look good long term....

Nancy Pelosi Appreciation Thread. Thank you Madame Speaker!

Greatest Speaker of my life and maybe in history

No offense Tip O.

Forget the Debt Ceiling. Let the GOP shut down the govt while demanding cuts to

Social Security and Medicare in exchange next year.

Let them be public about their goals and defend them on Meet The Press etc

You go GOP. You grab that third rail like Tarzan swinging on a vine.

Go ahead GOP, Make My Fucking Day.

That is exactly the knife we will need in 2024 so go ahead and arm us with it.



Trump wants to keep more of the money from his next campaign...

He's going to do it on the cheap while making money off merch etc.
It's going to be a huuuuuuuge grift.

A trio of longtime Republican operatives will lead Donald Trumpís 2024 campaign, which the former president is set to announce Tuesday evening in the ballroom of his private Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., according to five people familiar with the staffing decisions.

There are expected to be notable differences from his 2020 campaign, advisers say. His nascent presidential bid is not currently expected to have a traditional campaign manager, with multiple advisers in top roles, according to some of the people familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to reveal internal deliberations. Trump is famous for firing campaign managers.

Compared with 2020, the 2024 bid is expected to have a smaller staff and budget, advisers say, as Trump has complained that his failed 2020 campaign had too many people and spent too much money. He often told people that he did not even know what some of the people on his last campaign did.

The new campaign is expected to be based in South Florida, advisers say, instead of having a Washington presence.
