"That's, like, five people,"

Nancy Pelosi's time is past. 

She proved that during a "60 Minutes" interview last Sunday.

I'm all for "I've been doing this job forever" people keeping their jobs, but once their minds starts failing it…

“Today, you did more than make history...”

Israel's Bitch

Image may contain: 1 person, meme and text

1.  At Israel's prompting, moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem

2.  At Israel's prompting, cut funding for refugees through UNWRA

3.  At Israel's prompting, withdrew from…

“Meglio morta che lesbica”

That title translates (from Italian), "Better dead than lesbian"

That is a phrase I heard more than once in my youth.

Many here know my history (and that I am 100% Sicilian), but to the one's who don't let me share that, after my parents were killed, I ended up…

A Thank You to the "Invisible Strangers"

Elizabeth Warren Is A Racist

Don't think so?  Listen to what she says at around minute 28.00.

Once you listen, then kindly explain to me what else Warren meant when she said,

"...you couldn’t keep pushing harder because over time realities are…

“What are the regulations? What’s the law?”

The above title is a direct quote from Tamir Pardo, who was the director of Mossad from 2011 to 2016.  It reflects the beliefs of many/most of the leaders of Israel.

The reason those above cited words are important is two-fold. 

The first is the regimented, "professional grade" retaliation against Representative Ilhan Omar for turning over the rock…

Do You Want 4 More Years of Trump? Because This is How You Get 4 More Years of Trump!

You just need to keep allowing elitist, corporately owned, neolibs like Pelosi, Schumer and Perez to keep running the Democratic party. 

The ENTIRE left political spectrum and one hell of a lot of Independents will vote third party or stay at home because of crap like this.  We have no ability to change the Democratic Party because most of us are not members (nor want to be any longer) and they refused to listen to…

Thoughts on "Compromise"

Image result for democrat republican socialist green

I did a lot of reading yesterday.

I read everything from "the Republicans support the anti-Christ" to "the Democrats ARE anti-Christ" to the rhetorical "the Greens are not our liberal allies".

Ninety-nine percent of what I read was a load of tosh. …

Goodbye to a Beautiful Person

I just read a message that a friend of LemonPulp and mine has passed on.  Her passing broke my heart.

No automatic alt text available.

You see, "Our Katie" was one of the sweetest, most caring and funniest people we knew. 

She also suffered from anorexia.

Why I Hate Daily Kos

It's simple, really... they pander.  By pander I mean that they use "specific Democratic party base" triggers to promote their agenda.

It makes no difference that I might agree with their goal, but it is the "how" that makes me think they suck so badly.
