Thankfully we don’t have death squads in the USA

Or do we? Sometimes I wonder. Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.

If only we’d defend the homeless like we defend Chelsea Clinton

Why did I treat someone like that, especially knowing what I had so painfully and recently endured? More than 550,000 people are homeless on any given night in the United States, according to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. Between 2014 and 2016, I was one of them.

The Clintons, Bushes and Trumps Need to Leave Public Life, Forever (Also the McCains)

We were shocked when Clinton arrived at the vigil, given that she had not yet apologized to Rep. Omar for the public vilification against her. We thought it was inappropriate for her to show up to a vigil for a community she had so recently stoked hatred against. We were not alone in feeling uncomfortable […]

This is god level packing ability

I cycled through most of New England (on a full-sized bike) two years ago with one small backpack and one change of clothes. I’m probably going to do Gettysburg and Hapers Ferry sometime this May. My principle on long distance rides is “the less stuff the better.” But it doesn’t quite work in the real […]

The massacre in New Zealand was not the act of one man

It seems to have been an organized fascist conspiracy. Three people have been arrested in connection with the massacre. Weapons were found near each of the mosques. Police also disarmed two explosive devices found in one vehicle—an indication that further attacks might have been planned. So far, only one man has been named, 28-year-old Australian […]

It’s a big club and you ain’t in it

An NYU student heckles Chelsea Clinton, who tried to make an ill-advised appearance at a vigil for the victims of the Islamophobic massacre in New Zealand. Who does she have on her side but the son of our Islamophobic President. As usual, class trumps everything.

The increasing death toll due to the loss of benefits

When a terrible person makes an excellent point

I usually detest Sarah Kendzior but she’s 100% right about impeaching Trump. It is critical that the stakes are made clear. Refusal to impeach sends the message that the situation cannot possibly be that dire – it if were, the Democrats would move to impeach, right? This is the same disastrous miscalculation that gave us […]

Remember when we used to pretend mass murder wasn’t “political?”

A white supremacist in New Zealand walks into a mosque and live streams himself slaughtering 40 people. Yeah. It’s fucking political. This is not a “problem to be solved.” It’s terrorism. He said the mosques in Christchurch and Linwood would be the targets, as would a third mosque in the town of Ashburton if he […]
