My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
Poor Devin Nunez the idiot. You have to feel sorry for the man. I have no idea how this imbecile has made it to Congress but then of course I look at some of those people like Gym Jordan and I guess mediocrity seems to flourish there of late.
Our country is slowly becoming less and less democratic. That’s democratic with a small d.
With the electoral college now negating votes so that the majority no longer can elect a president especially if he’s or she is a Democrat. the last two Republican presidents were not elected by a majority of the American people would rather by the electoral college.
So what are we to do? Vote with our dollars. It’s the only power we have left and it’s limited. There are some brands that are almost impossible to get around but they seem to be the ones who jumped ship from Tucker Carlson early on.
I say boycott. I remember the first time that’s an organized boycott in the United States worked in my memory. it was the grape boycott organized by Cesar Chavez. We stopped buying grapes and it forced grape producers to start paying not a living wage but at least a better wage than they had been.
So I hope that every advertiser that is not a Noah Museum or some erectile dysfunction drug pulls their advertising from Tucker Carlson and from all of the fox programming that promotes hate and distrust of others.

Last week I posted about Devin Nunes and his ridiculous suits against two Twitter accounts and a member of the media. By the way he’s also currently Hawking a bill to stop frivolous lawsuits, talk about hilarious and ironic.
Did Russia they don’t believe in free speech. In the United States of America as of April 5th 2019 we still do. So Congressman Nunez put on your big boy pants and stop harassing individuals and Twitter accounts that upset you. You don’t like it please resign from Congress become a private individual and I promise you we will also gladly forget that you even exist. But the publicity whore that you are means I don’t think you will.
I love the parody accounts on Twitter including Devin Nunez his cow that he has soothed. The man is an idiot and he is a disrespect to the office he holds.
Once upon a time there was a congressman who ruled over the Central Valley of California. His immigrant parents from Portugal group a large dairy business and their son went to Congress. And that’s where the success depends. Sure he was able to climb the ranks of the Republican hierarchy in the house but his career is down the drain. now Adam Schiff is the chairman of the house intelligence committee and Adam Schiff made him look really bad today.
So Devin Nunes does what he does best and choose people. By the way this is the same guy that is sponsoring a bill to limit frivolous court cases. So is his first act he sued a fictitious account call Devin Nunes cow and also another fictitious account called Devin Nunes mom. by doing that he gave these two accounts platforms that they had never even hoped to have. Once again like Beavis and Butthead he took a pencil and stuck it right into his eye.
Poor little Devin Nunes wasn’t born of a lot of brains and is not going to have a great career. May he disappear with A whimper.
If it wasn’t CPAC I would think they were all on drugs, on second thought maybe they are.
Between railing about the green New deal and how they’re going to take away our cheeseburgers, SUVs and for God’s sakes airplanes they had a clown come to the show.
Unfortunately the clown is the President of the United States.
They are so outside of the mainstream of American thought that it has become akin to going to a NRA convention. both organizations are outside of the mainstream of American soft, both organizations have people desperately clinging onto power for power’s sake and both organizations should be dismantled.
and there are people out there that are buying this Hook Line & sinker. I’ve got to put in a little word hear about Joe Biden’s comment that Mike Pence is a decent guy. to me it is indicative of the fact that Joe Biden should not be the nominee of the democratic party. Mike Pence is not a decent guy, Mike Pence hates the lgbtqi community and Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. You can tell me that the governor of Indiana comes to Washington and sees all these Russians running around and doesn’t ask a single question. It’s not believable and therefore it can’t be true.
This has not been a really illustrious time for the gay community. Here in Los Angeles we are rocked by two scandals involving high-profile gay leaders. The mayor of West Hollywood, John Duran, someone I consider a friend is under investigation for sexual harassment in the gay men’s chorus of Los Angeles. One of the butler’s that has been so instrumental in getting people elected with a progressive slats is also under investigation for two deaths that happened in his home under the circumstances that involved crystal meth. And now we have Jussie Smollett.
I am torn. Fox in the end what he has done is hurting everyone that has ever been the subject of a hate crime. Even the simple gear of being called faget on the street is in my opinion I hate crime. It’s on the same level as having the n-word thrown at an African-American. He used his celebrity to enrich himself. She already was in the cast of a successful show on Fox. He wasn’t happy with how much he got paid then that’s the job for his agent to resolve. Having said then a sag-aftra agents in the 80s I know exactly how this works and contracts need to be negotiated. But you ain’t what he did is inexcusable. I’m sorry he has hurt everyone who has ever been damaged by a hate crime.
He has played into the hands of the current occupants of the White House. Trump tweeted about this incident but seemed to completely ignore the fact that a white supremacist member of the coast guard wanted to kill Progressive media journalists. Trump says that the New York Times is the enemy of the people and he doesn’t understand that his words resonate with his cult like followers.
Calling this President unhinged is an insult to the word unhinged. He’s more than unhinged he is certifiable. Honestly, this is becoming very tiresome. I am worried about what he has done to our federal courts in packing them with his allies. In his little sing-song that he did when announcing the so-called National emergency he was correct in saying that it is going to go to the Supreme Court. what I’m worried is how these new justices that are beholden to him will vote. I’m sure if you tell Justice Kavanaugh that tRUMP will give him some beer, he will fall in line with this madman’s actions. I am worried for the state of our Union has I’ve never been before.
I truly believe that living in Los Angeles is a privilege. When I moved here almost 20 years ago I was told that the city would eat me up. Instead the city has embraced me. Living in the city where people have the same mindset as you, for the most part, it’s magical.
So once again I’m so proud of our great City for standing up to the NRA. The NRA has become not only a purveyor of death and violence in our country but also a conduit of dirty money from foreign countries including Russia.
Can someone please explain to me why the NRA would be doing events in Russia. Russia does not allow gun ownership it never made sense.
Business in Los Angeles is also a privilege and if these companies wish to continue doing business here they need to start fussing up to how and why they are tied to the NRA.
I’ve never been a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow. I’ve never been a fan of celebrities cashing in on their celebrity through fake or untrustworthy claims regarding products or even more importantly your health. And so here we are at the Nexus of both with Netflix being vehicle where this fake science is promoted.
People look up to celebrities, people should not look up to celebrities. And yes they do. I don’t understand why someone who has a large media presence or an online following should be looked upon as having some special knowledge. They don’t, they are humans and they put on their pants, if they put them on themselves, one leg at a time. so I call upon Netflix to make sure that’s it just yours and especially the viewers of this Gwyneth Paltrow pseudoscience goop is made aware that this is not real science and there should be a Giant disclaimer. The way Netflix is going of late I don’t think they will.
And most of all, Gwyneth Paltrow, please get a life.
I know, it’s hard to believe that tax cuts for the rich is not translating in self into Big refunds for the middle class and the poor. That’s how the Republican cookie crumbles literally. People are up in arms on the internet. They are saying the only reasonthey voted for the current occupants of the White House was for tax relief. Instead he raised their taxes! Not only did you erase it there taxes but he penalized States like California that have income tax where you can no longer deduct that from your income. So here we are California taxation without representation from the federal government because we are certainly not as well represented as Wyoming or Montana or The Dakotas with their 500,000 people and still two US Senators.
Isn’t he presidential! President Donald Trump kisses a printed example of what a new tax form may look like during a meeting on tax policy with Republican lawmakers in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Nov. 2, 2017, in Washington, as House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., watch him what I would hope would be horror, but that’s Paul Ryan and no.
