Hoorah, sledding!

By mike flugennockSaturday - December 19th, 2015Categories: DC Local, Health Care, liberty

According to this report on WAMU-FM here in DC, the latest Congressional spending bill prevents the District Of Columbia from funding abortion services for poor women and regulating and taxing the sale of marijuana. They did, however, repeal the ban on sledding on the Capitol grounds, after a vigorous local outcry last winter.

Apparently, they’re still hurting from all the bad publicity they caught with the sledding ban, but could care less about all the ill will they get by restricting women’s healthcare rights and the right to tax and regulate a plant that’s been legal for nearly a year. Still, there’s prime sledding opening up on the hill at the West Front, so there’s that.

Freedom Finger

By mike flugennockTuesday - December 8th, 2015Categories: DC Local, liberty

As you may recall from this past spring, my longtime comrade and BBF (Best Bud Forever) Adam Eidinger, activist extraordinaire, was jailed for basically being disrespectful to a politician at a Congressional DC Oversight Committee hearing chaired by the pompous and pasty Jason Chaffetz.

Adam’s recent trial on this bogus charge ended in a mistrial last week, and a retrial has been scheduled for May 2nd.

Democracy IS “Disorderly”!

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 25th, 2015Categories: DC Local, elections, liberty

This past week, at a Congressional Oversight (plantation masters) Committee meeting about to overturn a DC local law, my long-time BBF, comrade and DC freedom fighter Adam Eidinger was snatched from his seat by police, hustled out of the hall and placed under arrest. The charge is, for all intents and purposes, Giving A Dirty Look To A Politician — not joining an organized disruption, or jumping up during the proceedings — nothing conventionally “disorderly”, but basically just being there, with his Phrygian Cap and throwing a quick side-eye at DC’s new plantation overseer.

And so, it’s in honor and solidarity that I present this portrait of Adam, on the occasion of this bizarre and disturbing arrest.
