Important Fish to Fry

First of all, huge thanks to Kate Nocera at Buzzfeed News for tweeting that inspiring quote from the Speaker.

So, now, folks… considering her enabling of fascism, her support for an obscene war budget, her desperate opposition to Medicare For All, and her bitter refusal to hold a criminal Executive to account – a tendency going back to Bush v2.0 – I have to ask myself: who are the “important fish” that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are needing to fry?

Oh, yeah, that’s right…

#MeltICE

By mike flugennockSaturday - July 7th, 2018Categories: Party Animals, liberty

So, while the ICE has gone full Gestapo — separating immigrant families, caging their children — and people are in the streets taking direct action, occupying ICE offices, blocking detainee transfer buses and confronting officials in public, what are the Democrats doing? Well, along with hopping aboard the bandwagon for votes, they’re lecturing us about “civility”, with Chump Schumer and Nancy Pelosi being the worst of the bunch.

And, as usual, Democrats are waffling and mealy-mouthing, calling for “reforming”, “restructuring” and re-imagining the American Gestapo; the most irksome of all has to be Kamala Harris who, after knocking herself out defending ICE, has suddenly started talking about “re-examining” ICE. Sorry, Ms. H., but “re-examining” and “reforming” are not abolishing.

The Last Donut

So, yesterday, Democratic Party hacks Chump Schumer and Nancy Pelosi proudly unveiled a vague, tepid economic reform package called “A Better Deal”. It’s kind of adorable, really, the way the Democratic leadership is suddenly discovering the crushing income inequality in the US and, in typical lame-ass Democratic fashion, tries to claw its way back to relevance with Left and progressive voters.

And that slogan — dear god, how many focus groups did it take to come up with that, anyway? “A Better Deal” — man, that just inspires the living hell out of me.
