So six people, out of 18, quit the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, because they felt this current administration was refusing to listen to them and they felt they could provide more help from outside the administration, than within.  Much of this protest-via-resignation centered around the new Trumpcare AHCA bill; it’s  allowance of insurance companies […]

fire Colbert? fire Trump.

caveat/warning: foul language So I guess the latest Trump-bashing from Colbert has gotten some people upset.  I think the comment in question is that he said, regarding Trump: “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c— holster.” Some are saying, presumably those on the right, that this goes too far […]

Latest updates (5/20/17), added new link under Related Links, 5/20/17:   The following video is not intended to be pedantic, rather, for some levity and nostalgia (Dave Frishberg, Schoolhouse Rock!, 1976): *some caveats: With this Trump administration, there are so many issues to tackle.  A woman at a meeting the other night described it like […]

Laura Jane Grace interview on Daily Show with Trevor Noah, here (comedycentral) ——————————————————————————————————————— A two-part post tonight.  I was watching various YouTube videos, videos on personal experiences with Aspbergers, among other things, and thought I’d share that.  and then I thought about Laura Jane Grace, because I’d seen an interview with her on Daily Show […]

Wild West: hidden awesome people

01/25/2017

I was just watching the latest episode of NBC’s Timeless, which features Bass Reeves, a historical figure I had never heard of before.  I was intrigued and upon a little internet digging, this man, and Grant Johnson, were pretty amazing.  They have to make a movie about Bass Reeves. Bass Reeves’ wikipedia Bass Reeves (catalystdc.com) […]

Action for the Day

01/25/2017

Latest updates (5/06/17) . ——————————————————————————————————————— Given everything about the Trump administration, we all have to do more than we have been doing.  How can we turn anger, frustration, and despair into progress; how can we turn a march into a movement, as protestors were saying?  So I decided to start an action of the day […]

LGBT rights and discrimination

11/21/2016

Update: 12/9/16, links   As I figured, it’s already happening.  No, Trump nor Pence caused anti-LGBT discrimination.  Just as they didn’t create racism.  But they threw/continue to throw fuel on the fire, using fear and bigotry to obtain and maintain votes and power.  I would like to live in a world where racism, bigotry, rape, […]

my America

11/11/2016

America is supposed to be a melting pot of freedom for everyone.  It’s hard, it’s complicated, there are no easy answers.  But hate and intolerance can’t win.  Blaming any disenfranchised group (including white men by the way), which also unfairly lumps people together, won’t solve complex economic problems.  It’s easier to criticize than to find […]
