We don’t expect any Trump supporters to be reading this blog but one never knows now-a-days. Yeah maybe that cop who is a spy, checking us out, or maybe that right wing nut who wants to punch out our running lights, (careful on that one baby as we got the goods) or someone who is just curious to what a furbird is. We came upon this meme that someone send to us and asked that we publish it. We said yes but we want to add that this is only a part of the problem. A horrible nasty part of the problem. We have some trump supporters in our family and haven’t spoken to them since the election when we told them off. Just think saying “we love you out of their mouth and then voting against us as queers. Doesn’t work that way. Better study your history nazi.

and them some.

We know this but we can’t stop it. I began working against war in 1964 when I joined the War Resisters League in NYC. We spoke out, we were beaten and tear gassed by the police, we were arrested, jailed, came out and did in again and again. Stop the wars we yelled. Been in this fight for 55 years against war and against war makers. Give up, never. When I read something like the above it only makes me want to fight harder and bring others into the fight. What could all that money do? A heck of a lot. Never mind the real tragedy the act of killing innocent people. Let this weight heavily on all of us living in the lap of luxury where such things like this are allowed to exist.  A very wise women once said, We have got to change the system otherwise we will be fighting the same old battles over and over. Getting tired of all that over and over aren’t you?

Looking guilty as hell.

Conservative Group hosts anti-transgender panel of ‘feminists from the left.’

By Tim Fitzsimons

The conservative Heritage Foundation, which has long advocated against LGBTQ rights, hosted a panel in Washington on Monday titled “The Inequality of the Equality Act: Concerns From the Left.” But instead of highlighting the left’s opposition to the Equality Act, which seeks to add LGBTQ protections to federal civil rights laws, all four panelists had one thing in common: They oppose transgender rights.

If gender identity becomes a protected class in federal civil rights law, there will be serious negative consequences,” Ryan T. Anderson, a senior research fellow at the foundation and the event’s moderator, said in his introduction. The increase in those identifying as transgender, he added, “has become an epidemic.”

Those invited by Heritage to share their “concerns from the left” included three women from the Women’s Liberation Front, or WoLF, a self-described radical feminist organization best known for its opposition to transgender rights, and Hacsi Horvath, an adjunct lecturer at the University of California, San Francisco, who formerly identified as transgender.

Throughout their hourlong discussion, the four panelists — at least two of them LGBTQ — shared similar views on transgender people and the rights many in the trans community are currently seeking. Horvath likened the trans rights movement to “the new eating disorder,” and Jennifer Chavez, a WoLF member, read from a letter that described increased transgender visibility and acceptance as “a social contagion all over the internet.” (more…)

This is in today from Daily Kos. Want to scream, want to believe us when we say that this system has got to change. Want to believe some of us when we say, “Death to the Capitalist Pigs!” no other way around it. Or is it like, “I don’t need this drug anyway so this is not my problem.”

Take heed when reading this. If it doesn’t make you mad then something is very wrong with you.

Pharma chief says 400% increase in cost of essential medicine ‘is a moral requirement to make money’

By Walter Einenkel

Pharmaceutical companies use the weakest, and frequently the laziest, excuses for jacking up the prices of their life-saving drugs. In the end, no matter what they say, it is about money. Their job, as they see it, is to make money. If they keep 100 people alive or 1,000 or 1,000,000,000, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that number on the bottom line on their accounting sheet. If their goal is to make $1,000,000, and they need to sell a pill for $1,000,000 apiece for the only 10 babies who need it in order to achieve that goal, then that is what they will do. Most people, faced with that statement, would say that is immoral. Most people don’t know shit about making that kind of money, baby! Just ask Nostrum Laboratories’ Nirmal Mulye. In an interview published in the Financial Times, he had this to say about everyone making Martin Shkreli out to be a bad guy for raising the cost of one of his own company’s drugs through the roof.

“I agree with Martin Shkreli that when he raised the price of his drug he was within his rights because he had to reward his shareholders […] If he’s the only one selling it then he can make as much money as he can,” said Mr Mulye. “This is a capitalist economy and if you can’t make money you can’t stay in business.”

What is Mulye defending? Well, his “Missouri-based” company, Nostrum Laboratories, just jacked up the price of their drug nitrofurantoin from $474.75 to $2,392. According to the World Health Organization, nitrofurantoin is what they classify as an “essential drug.” It treats bladder and urinary tract infections. Mulye wasn’t done giving a lesson in sociopathy as he continued to defend Martin Shkreli as being within his rights: “We have to make money when we can. The price of iPhones goes up, the price of cars goes up, hotel rooms are very expensive.”
According to Mulye, Nostrum was working the market against Casper Pharma, which makes another version of the same drug and had recently raised its price to $2,800. So you see, Mulye is still offering it up for less! Morality! The guy is a saint!

We are sure as the shit hits the fan over this Mr. Mulye will sleaze his way out or at least try to. Let’s call it like it is. This man is one big Capitalist pig. If you think that one side in this is any better than the other then take a look at who Mr. Mulye pals around with. She’s not the only one.  Bush/Obama/Trump/Clinton. Four cheeks on the same huge ass. These pigs own all of the politicians so go ahead and vote, vote for one of the cheeks, one of the pimples and keep this system going. Well, we aren’t going to be smothered by such puss.

From the Hampton Institute:    “The dirty truth is that the rich are the great cause of poverty.” – Michael Parenti

There are two vacant investor-owned homes for every homeless person in America.

The difference between the greed of the wealthy and the precariousness of American workers is painfully stark when looking at vacant homes.
2016 figures from ATTOM Data Solutions — which publishes comprehensive housing data — show that wealthy investors are buying up more and more real estate as a moneymaking venture while housing prices and homelessness continue to skyrocket across America.
According to ATTOM, 76 percent of all vacant homes in America are owned by investors — amounting to approximately 1.1 million vacant residential investment properties. Many of these vacant homes are in economically distressed Rust Belt cities with high poverty rates, like Detroit, Michigan, neighboring Flint, and Youngstown, Ohio. The states with the highest investment property vacancy rate also have high poverty rates. Michigan leads the pack with 10.3 percent vacancy, Indiana at 9.8 percent, Alabama at 6.9 percent, and Mississippi at 6.6 percent.

Meanwhile, in December of 2017, the Associated Press reported that homelessness increased in America for the first time since 2010 — the height of the Great Recession. 2017 data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development showed that local counts of homeless Americans reached approximately 554,000 nationwide, which is a 1 percent increase from 2016 (and roughly half of the number of vacant residential investment properties in America today). Approximately one-third of those counted as homeless had no access to nightly shelters and were sleeping on streets, and in vehicles and tents.

2017 was also a record-high year for rent prices, according to housing figures from Zillow. Tenants across America paid landlords an estimated $485.6 billion, with more than $100 billion of that coming from just the New York/New Jersey market, the Los Angeles/Long Beach/Anaheim market, and the Chicago market. Approximately 97,000 of America’s homeless persons are in New York City (63,169 homeless) and Los Angeles (34,000 homeless). Cities like San Jose, California and Denver, Colorado are seeing double-digit rent increases on average each year, according to Forbes.

If current trends continue, affordable housing is expected to become even more scarce. CNBC reported in 2016 that 25 percent of ultra-wealthy Americans surveyed are planning on buying more real estate over the next several years. More scarcity in housing markets will drive up home prices, which will increase rent prices as a result. This could lead to future increases in the number of homeless Americans between now and 2020.

To anyone who thinks that we are off base when we say, No War But Class War this we hope will convince you otherwise.

There are so many but Jim Ziegler, Alabama’s State Auditor takes the prize.

Here is the big pig now.

We used a rather small picture as that is what this man is. Why is he the Big Jerk of the year. Well here goes.

‘Mary Was a Teenager.’ Alabama Republican Uses Jesus to Defend Roy Moore

“While some Republicans at the national level spoke out against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday in the wake of allegations that he initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s, Republicans from his own state seemed to have a different view — with one citing Jesus’ parents to defend Moore’s alleged behavior.

“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
Four women have told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an adult. The women were between the ages of 14 and 18, while Moore was in his 30s at the time, according to the Post.”

For the full story go to MSN HERE.

Hey stupid that bit with Mary and Joseph was up to God. Joseph had nothing to do with it.  Ray Moore is just a nasty pedophile among many other things, is not God nor is he Joseph.

When will we end this nonsense.

The IRS says, Robert Mercer, the big Trump Donor owes $7,000,000,000 in back taxes.

Here is a photo of the rich WHITE Privileged Criminal.

That’s $7 billion. The man owes $7 billion dollars. People here in NYC go to jail for not paying their subway fare. To call this white privilege is an understatement.

One reply this problem that we find interesting is this. I think the reply is forgetting the little fact that it is his Hedge Fund not anyone else. You want to see the very rich in action and what their money can do check out the legal team that he has.

…His hedge fund, Renaissance, owes it. The legal team it has assembled includes B. John Williams, a former IRS chief counsel and tax court judge; Fred Goldberg, a former IRS commissioner; and Diane Ryan, the former chief of the agency’s appeals unit! https://www.bloomberg.com/…/dispute-over-mercer-hedge…

 Who is gonna win this? Who is going to be allowed a free ride?  Let’s us remember Madame Defarge and sit with her in all of this.
