“Give me honorable enemies rather than ambitious ones, and I’ll sleep more easily by night.” ? George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones I swear to you, dear reader, that I have other topics besides Clinton corruption that I would enjoy using this weekly missive to discuss. However, as much as I’d love to unload […]

The DNC Code

the DNC code

It almost feels sarcastic to say “Democratic Party” aloud these days, or even typing it out as I did just now. The Democratic National Committee in current incarnation is hardly democratic at all. From super-delegates to allegations of voter fraud to a pyramid scheme fundraising that ultimately only funnels local money to Hillary Clinton, the […]

Bernie’s not a “real Democrat,” says Hillary supporting social media users. Many voters who registered as Democrats within the last year in closed primary states have been forced to use often-uncounted provisional ballots.

The Social Justice League of America

Reading comic books growing up made me politically progressive. Superhero comics particularly sparked my interest in politics as a young child and shaped my world view. I think, to some extent, they still do. It was because of my belief in truth, justice and the American way as a child that I grew up to be […]
