There’s this mythos that the left wing controls the media… Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, that’s not the far left. It is in a bizarro world where you have a President like you have now… we’re living in a rightwing madhouse where these corporate conservative people are the far left.

More nonsense. More craziness. It becomes normal in a sort of way. Like the way racism is normalized to the point where we don’t even see it.

RICHARDSON! calls in! TIGER WON? Are you kidding? I thought Ex-Cub, ex-White Sox Bobby Molinaro was going to win that thing!

Fun Facts: The GOP was formed in 1854. Lincoln campaigned for Republican candidates to the Illinois General Assembly in 1858 seeking an appointment to the US Senate.


April 4, 1968 to 2019 in one micro-blog

The Great Society and The War Against Poverty were laid to rest in the napalm ashes of the Vietnam War and the Reagan Reaction that came after the malaise of the Carter years. Dr. King died on this day in 1968 while advocating for sanitation workers in Memphis. 15 years later Ronald Reagan signed MLK Day into a national holiday while at the same time The Reagan Adminstration made sure the modest gains of the Poor Peoples Campaign withered in austerity. The 30 million dollars per day burden of killing Vietnamese peasants to save them from communism has become a 30 million dollars per hour Forever War. For Dr. King, the protest against mindless militarism and for economic justice was one and the same. It is not only fitting we remember the lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is essential for our future to act upon them.
