Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district.

This woman should be the President of the United States.

If we survive the malice and incompetence of Donald Trump and the Republican party, one day she will be.

This is not new, and that is the problem. Mr. Yoho

Unset These Stones.

Slaves for sale ad.
This is the legacy of the confederacy.

The legacy of the confederacy is shown in the image above, the number of Civil War dead (650,000~), and the enduring ugliness of Jim Crow. That’s it. There is nothing else.

We do not need these bronze and stone tributes, … the rest “Unset These Stones.”


NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace

Will the cars will run more slowly
Will 110-octane waft less sweetly
Will the acrid brume of grinding rubber cease to satisfy
Now that our peckerwood colors have been taken from us?


Bad Guys

It’s been eleven days since George Floyd was murdered by agents of the state.

Even as the resulting chaos and turmoil continue for our nation, we’ve begun to reflect on the meaning of this horrible event.

Plandoofus

Tin foil kills the COVID-19 virus.

Feeling oddly compelled to wade into the muck of the debate surrounding the “Plandemic” video that is currently circulating on social media. It’s complete bullshit and people are completely buying in.

A reasonable amount of ready cash.

Dear Mr. Kushner (or whoever is currently being President),
