I’ve been on the road talking with Laura Oatman, running in California’s 48th congressional district, and Doug Applegate, running in California’s 49th. They are both working for a progressive, inclusive America and you’ll meet them both very soon. I also had a chance to catch up with Friend of the Road Trip Howie Klein and boy are we excited about the voting results tonight! We are at the beginning of the 2018 Return to Sanity!

Dear Frank Schaeffer:
No progressive hero aligns with the Democrat Party.
All genuine opposition to Trump’s bourgeoisie policies begins with a genuinely socialist platform.
You may access the autopsy report on the Democrat Party here: http://tinyurl.com/ydao5qqv
Granted … in a perfect world a genuine Democratic Socialist platform would be the solution to many of the ills currently faced by the US
Problem is this is not a perfect world nor are we even close to being a prefect Union what with the majority of ignorant , severely misinformed and propagandized Americans equating genuine Socialism .. to what passed itself off as Communism … which it never was and still isn’t to this day
So the only choice … as it was with the 2016 elections .. is to either get behind the Democrats regardless of all their inherit ills .. or live with the realities and eminent hell of a Trump addled GOP
e.g. You/We are stick with the philosophical and ethical case of the Tragic Dilemma … where there is no good choice … only a bad one and a worse one … with the DNC being the bad … and the GOP being much much worse
PS; re: tinyurl . Stick with the real news .. not the fake news and alternative realities .. from either side
Let the downfall begin !
New Jersey governors race ( after years of the Pillsbury Dumb Boy Christie ) – Democrat
Virginia governors race ( in a GOP dominated state ) – Democrat
Gradually .. inch by inch .. regardless of what many may thing of the Democrats and their agenda … the GOP is looking worse by the minute exposing their Trickle on Up to the Rich economic policies … misguided on the best of days Tax Reform … idiotic foreign policies ( if they can be considered policies ) their blatantly hypocritical alliance with the Never Religious Right … tossing all semblances of financial and fiscal conservatism out the window … but more importantly … allowing a bloviating narcissistic psychopath like Trump to ever run as a Republican .. proving once and for all that moral character is no longer important to the majority in the GOP
( FYI according to the most recent PEW poll moral character is also no longer important or even an issue for …. 80% of self professing Evangelicals )
So yup .. two states down .. more coming … and hopeful many a senate and congress seat to go . And to think … all the GOP would have to do to stem this self induced tide of destruction … would be to disavow Trump ( and the entire alt right contingent ) completely then invoking Article 25 Section 4 .. which ironically they were the authors of back in 52
Sigh ………… Todays GOP . the very personification of the Collective Stupidity of America
Could you watch this bit of fine performance art?
Using costume and fact and biting sarcasm to get the idea across the idea of the gun holicost going on in America.
Like since 1970 more Americans have been killed by gun violence then in all wars combined since 1776 and so this bit of comedy got the point home to me!
Laugh or cry?
This little gem is a must see
Funny as it is Nine . Cry … most definitely .. cry …….. sigh …
On reflection Nine … the hardest aspect of watching that video was being reminded over and over again how many characters like her both male and female I’ve had the distinct displeasure of running across over the last thirty or so years of my Christian walk despite the humorously exaggerated stereotyping the creators of the video intended . I wonder if they know just how right they got it ?
Betty Bowers – thanks for the heads up – she has some amazing videos..
If its bad to own a gun, then you should be criticizing Frank Schaeffer. I think he said he has one. Isn’t it hypocritical for someone who is against private gun ownership to own a gun?
There are very few instances when it is legal to fire a gun at someone. Laws restricting how and when guns may be used have already been passed. Everyone who uses a gun to murder is breaking existing laws. Laws that are supported by the vast majority of gun owners.
I was only funning you with my posts.
I actually agree with you on the gun issue with a few serious reservations.
A dialog among christian brothers and sisters.
We have to much crime and violence on our American streets and so all must agree.
How do we fix it?
Let Nine tell you a story about his cycling adventures.
I went to a little town down in rural Ill for a cycling event called a gravel grinder. What? You know one rides on rural gravel roads in the middle of nowhere on a bicycle for fun.
When I showed up on my pals farm in the middle of nowhere he shot me a coors lite beer and said do you like to shoot guns…he he…
Only shot a gun once before that…
He was a gun instructor and worked with the local police and he taught me how to load a firearm properly and how to point it and shoot it.
I have a talent for guns and I can shoot very straight it seems….
There was tremendous community in this little town as the local police showed up to shoot guns on my pals farm.
It was a blast!
We shot off hundreds of rounds of ar 15 and 50 cal and 22 and so on…
This is rural American community and do we disrespect it?
I felt safe even around these heavily armed people.
Rural and urban life is very different and so our domestic enemies have driven a wedge between us that is all I am saying.
Got a new desktop computer and can type with out that dammed phone.
The politics of separation is the enemy I see….
Nine – You’re attempting the impossible . Trying to reason with a completely unreasonable illogical and inconsistent individual . Assuming Bryson is authentic .. he is the very epitome of ;
True Believer Syndrome = The irrational persistence of some untenable belief , system or ideology regardless of any and all evidence to the contrary
Thus says the hypocritical lying two faced chickenhawk pretending to be a Christian knowing nothing of the law .. boasting that he flaunts it willingly .. all while taking pride in contradicting Scripture any time it doesn’t suit him .
FYI Junior … the majority of gun owners ? Oh really ? Seems to me all the evidence points to the fact that the majority of gun owners today are advocating for a Wild West Free for All .. not any adherence to the law . Ahh .. but then again Bryson … I’m talking about evidence and fact … not NRA/Gun Lobby / Arms Manufactures propaganda , lies , fear mongering all in the name of profit … public rights and personal safety be damned
By the way oh monochromatic mono consumer one . Hardly anyone is advocating that no one own a gun including the overwhelming majority of Democrats . What the majority of us advocating for gun control is .. is a return to the ban on all semi automatic assault and military weapons that can easily and cheaply be converted to fully automatic ( $27 or less in ten minute or less in most cases ) .. as well as all states mandating gun registration …. none of which contradicts your precious 2nd amendment in the slightest
Betty is a member of America’s finest church called Landover Baptist.
I think that Mr Bryson would fit in very well there!
Landover is too liberal for me.
That was really funny…
Yeah well my gutless little ‘ chickenhawk ‘ .. that may be so my not being familiar with Landover .. but you are the very epitome of Betty’s character in the video . Fact is as I scrolled down the memory banks of everyone the hypocritical lying two faced Bible hating character she portrays reminded me of .. you continually came to the top of the list . Fact is I was holding my tongue in the futile hope you’d take my advice and warning to heart . But since you chose not to … gloves off little man .
Oh good Lord i heaven Bryson … what a pathetic little fool you are . Did you bother to open the link Nine provided ? Out of curiosity after sending my first reply I did . And the reality is … Landover’s right up your Alt Right Make America White Again Biblical Truth hating alley .
Ask Betty Bowers to pray for you.
