The Dog Whistle of Law and Order

Posted on July 13, 2016

I just wanted to rant a little about how the Main Stream Media has ignored the racial dog whistle of Donald Trump resurrecting Nixon’s old slogan of ‘the law and order candidate’. It’s time to remember the context of 1968 when law and order meant silencing the Civil Rights movement and putting down the anti-war movement. Let’s not forget that. What’s more, the media needs to begin reporting it as to what it really means: it’s a racial dog whistle calling for the silencing of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Do your job, media!

In Memoriam

Posted on July 08, 2016

This is for those officers who gave their lives protecting people and the people’s right to peacefully assemble in the City of Dallas. Love will always defeat violence in the end. Police are not the enemy, racism is… Police are very often under-paid, over-worked and work constantly under the stress of possible gun violence.

Racism and guns… racism and guns… how many times do we have to learn that lesson in blood?

Red State Roads

Just drive around the country these days and I challenge you not to notice one simple fact: the redder the state, the worse the roads. Everywhere the right-wing has taken over in this country you find crumbling roads and bridges.
