It’s Bernie or… Trump??(updated)

The lovely and talented Susan Sarandon was on Chris Hayes the other night, talking about the election and campaigning for Sanders. Sarandon has the internets in an uproar because she has stated that she will not vote for Hillary should Hillary win the DNC nomination. “I just can’t bring myself to … vote for that” (the […]

We interrupt the end of civilization(updated)

Just wanted to note that Bernie Sanders, who availed himself of a chance to perform with animals (a wayward finch, it seems) in a way that worked  out much better than Trump’s bad day with an eagle, has won Washington State and Alaska primaries by huge margins, with Hawaii yet to vote. Alaska gave 80.7% of its vote […]

VOTE FOR TRUMP NOW!!!

I need to explain that I’m posting pro-Bernie information out of a sense of fair play. The piece […]

Bernie takes Michigan

I had been planning a different post a few days ago. The Bernie Sanders campaign felt like it was stalled, and even ardent backers of the Vermont Senator were writing the kinds of FaceBook posts that were easy to walk back.  Michigan and Sanders win in the primary there has shaken up the game.

The Roof is On Fire — Looks like February of 2016 Was 1.5 to 1.7 C Above 1880s Averages

For decades now, a coalition of fossil fuel special interests, big…
