The Amazon Monopoly

July 16, 2020

Amazon has a monopoly in this country. If you are receiving food assistance, (EBT), they are the only ones you can use EBT while on-line shopping that I know of. While Walmart may offer a better deal on grocery items, you can not use your EBT there for delivery.

If you or someone you know is laid off or loses income because of everything that’s going on the state says it’s important to file a claim for unemployment benefits.

Trump Knew He Would Face Biden

March 11, 2020

Consider how Trump knew he would be facing the corporate democrat Joe Biden a year before you thought your vote mattered. The person who will win the presidency is the person who will protect profits of the 1%.

There is no democracy in the presidential race. You don’t pick anything or vote for anyone. Even some elite loser sometimes takes the White House for the ultimate fuck you. You have seen this before, believe what you see for a change.

Urgent Need For Universal Healthcare

March 4, 2020

The current candidates except for Bernie Sanders are not telling you the whole truth. Without universal healthcare the United States will continue to decline and drown in its out of control rampant profit taking while more people lose healthcare.

The Trump administration has already kicked millions of people off healthcare and the Supreme Court is looking to kick even more. All this while deciding if women should lose their healthcare choices and the right of a legal abortion.

Corona Virus Update 2-28-20

February 28, 2020

No need for a doctor, an infectious disease specialist, the CDC, or even a surgeon general, not when our stable genius taps Mike Pence as the leader against the corona virus… Feel safe now? Who needs science.

In the mean time Bothel High School is closed today to be disinfected. Turns out a member of the staff recently returned from overseas and was feeling ill and they are now under in-home quarantine. But corona virus has not even been positively identified because it takes a week!

Bernie Rally In Tacoma

February 20, 2020

17,000 people attended the Bernie Rally in Tacoma last night at the Tacoma Dome. This is a video of the event. Unlike every other candidate running, Bernie has been saying the same thing for over 30 years and has not made the same stupid mistakes like supporting war in Iraq and the Middle East.

Every issue Bernie has been warning us about for decades have not been addressed and have gotten worst. This is why Bernie is the front runner and why the younger generations are so firmly behind him. They are not stupid and committed to not making the same stupid mistakes over and over again.

Bigger Threat, Trump Or McConnell?

February 11, 2020

While many people are thinking Donald Trump is destroying the democracy, I feel the bigger culprit is Mitch McConnell. It all started when he destroyed any resemblance of bipartisanship when he went with his “nuclear option” and blew the senate up.

Animal Farm 2020

February 6, 2020

Back when I was in grammar school I remember the teacher reading to the class the book “Animal Farm”. As a kid the title was intriguing to us as who did not love animals. But this book was not what we were expecting. It was a book on the dangers of tyranny.

Near the end of the book when the pigs took over the farm, they changed the farm motto from “All Animals Are Equal” to “All Animals Are Equal, But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others”.

Where Do We Go Now?

February 3, 2020

First off we should never allow a Senate controlled by the same party as the President. This impeachment has shown us that one party rule is no longer a democracy. One party rule allows corruption like we have never seen before.

What annoys me the most is that the GOP was not at all honest about this except for one GOP Senator who came close. He said we did not need any witnesses because it was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Trump did it.

Iraq Asks Us To Leave

January 28, 2020

While what seems like its been much longer ago than it was, President Trump thought it a good idea to kill a Iranian general on Iraqi soil, at their airport no less. He just happened to be with a high level Iraqi official who was also blown up by this drone attack. Iraq has been in chaos ever since.
