Isn’t it nice to begin your day with a dose of cheery optimism?

Excuse me. I distinctly remember someone saying we’re not going to make it. I think we made it. I’m sorry, I overreacted. At the time, it looked very much like we weren’t going to make it. Yes, well, maybe next time you’ll just wait and see. And blow the last chance I might ever have …

Julian Assange

tl;dr, I know. I feel I should state my position up front. I think that Wikileaks performs a valuable service which is fully covered by all the protection the First Amendment offers.

An Embarrassment Of Lies

PragerU, Candace Owens, and Cody testifies before Congress in the body of a young Black woman from Connecticut by warging ala Bran Stark and the Night King. C’mon people, I only have 5 more weeks to work off my Game of Thrones trivia.

Black Letter Law

Steve Mnuchin is a particularly loathsome Republican whos name makes me cringe every time I see it scroll up the screen after an otherwise good movie like Wonder Woman or Lego Batman. He really has no standing, even as Treasury Secretary, to interfere with House House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal’s direct request …
