Move Nancy, Get Out the Way!
They are corrupt. We know that. They are sycophantic. We know that. What we don’t know is what will be done about it. Here’s what won’t do a damn thing—hurling tweeted insults at it. We’ve had it up to here with you Nancy. How long should we wait?
Mueller Must Go Beyond the "Four Corners" of His Report

It's 2:00 PM and I'm Still in Bed

Don't Buy These Ads in Ohio
When it comes to this year’s midterms, it seems that the strategy on the right is simply to lie and cheat their way into office. There were so many ads this weekend here in Columbus, Ohio (the Heart of it All) that flat out attempt to distort reality. They’re as blatant as they are inane.

Black America: Why I Vote
Emancipation came down to two votes—two. Two votes that no black person in this country could cast. We had to depend on the goodwill and determination of a group of men to vote for what is right and not what was politically expedient or in their own self-interest. And let’s face it, for white men, white privilege in 1863 was a big deal. It was the only way that they could rise to whatever heights economically, politically, and socially without any competition from any woman or men of color.
