Can we stop voting for 1%ers, already??

I don’t get why this is so hard to understand.

I’m still dismayed that no consensus formed out of the obvious overlap between these two recent populist movements… such a perfect microcosm of everything that’s wrong with our current political system.

“Go back to sleep, America.” — Bill Hicks

"The greatest hoax of the last couple of decades has been the ability of the right wing to co-opt members of the struggling lower middle class and lower class and pretend they speak for them while enacting policies that enable the super-rich. They’ve used wedge issues like gay marriage and abortion and the baby Jeebus to alienate folks from their own economic interests, feeding them a steady diet of hatred of minorites, the educated, science, and, well, reality to create a voting block of people so guided by hatred of the “other” that they would crawl over broken glass to cut their nose off to spite their face."

The person who may be responsible for more food-related illness and death than anyone in history has just been made the US food safety czar.

Wow.

A former Monsanto exec and lobbyist as the US FOOD SAFETY CZAR?

Are you KIDDING?

When does a Shell exec get his Department of the Interior post?

Fuck.
