Good news: Harriet Tubman will be on the new $20 bill; bad news, Andrew Jackson will continue to be on the back of the bill. Good news, a group of women representing the suffrage movement (full disclosure, my grandmother was a suffragette) will be on the $10 bill; bad news, they will be on the […]
Wiley Miller offers his on take on The Donald this morning…
First, at the gut level this story is yawner. Ted Cruz, as Solicitor General of Texas, tried to make dildos illegal? Of course he did, he’s Ted Cruz. Second, I can’t believe that Larry missed a perfect protest moment. Years ago I took part in a campaign intended to humiliate then-leader-of-Myanmar General Than Shwe by […]
That is all…
So, the 1994 crime bill, introduced by Joe Biden, voted for by Bernie Sanders and supported by then First Lady Hillary Clinton, has come back to haunt Hillary who is counting on a majority of Black voters coming out for her, not only in the primaries, but critically in the November election.

I’ve never given anywhere near this money to a political candidate before, but I believe that the 2016 election is that important. Yet, I won’t make fundraising calls for Bernie and I feel horrible for the […]
I think there’s more than a little of the undead in Donald Trump so I’m not so sure that Nader is right here, too many have been wrong about Trump’s demise in the past, but if he is correct then the Republicans are left with Ted Cruz or John Kasich (I can’t believe I just […]
The poor little pooch is really pooped… *Buster and me…
…and four packets of peanuts, of course.
So, why do I learn about this in a comedy show. Seriously, I didn’t catch this from any of my regular news sources. What the fuck, journalists? A quick Google search under news for Nixon War On Drugs turned up plenty of hits but only one on the front page from a major news source? […]
