Some other progressive talkers like both Farron Cousins of The Ring Of Fire Radio and David Pakman have also shared their concerns about this as well:

Bomb Suspect Caught

Thank God Caesar Sayoc was caught so quickly by the FBI in Plantation, Florida. It turns out the guy has a history of criminally violent conduct. The most disconcerting factor is his level of political radicalization; together with his readily available access to the materials needed to construct the bombs.

Why We Should Still Turn Out Regardless Of What The Republicans And Their Far-Right Goons Do To Keep Us Away From The Polls

From voter suppression to voter intimidation, it’s pretty clear to see that the Republican Party is growing desperate to hang on to their status as America’s majority party. That reason alone is exactly why we need to still come out and make our voices heard in the upcoming midterm election in 2 weeks. If you live in a Republican-controlled state, don’t let yourself be intimidated out of exercising your right to vote.

As Barack Obama correctly pointed out in a video on Youtube, voting is the only way to improve our already dire circumstances. Now is not the time to become disengaged. Let’s answer his call by heading out to the polls on November 6.

My #MeToo Story

The MeToo movement has been showing a lot of traction on social media recently, and I feel the need to tell my story. I faced verbal/emotional abuse on 2 separate occasions. The first time was in kindergarten, while the second happened in 6th grade. Both times left me scarred emotionally, with exceedingly bad social anxiety and suicidal depression. I have the most impossible time actually trusting authority figures because of both experiences.

The first time that the abuse happened was in kindergarten came from a teacher who used fire alarms to scare us kids into compliance, and went completely ballistic over me scribbling when engaging in art. Who does this to a 6-year-old? If you're that young, scribbling is completely expected. There's no reason for someone to scream about something as minor as that. Thank God my parents got me out of there. I can't stress enough about speaking up, especially when going through an experience like this.

The second time was in 6th grade, with a 1-to-1 para-professional being verbally abusive towards anyone that he felt disrespected him, which included the vice-principle. He baited me at times and humiliated me with unnecessary screaming fits in front of my classmates. I really felt guilty whenever a classmate decided to risk a detention just to tell him off. The worst came in the form of him bad-mouthing me in his native language (which was Spanish, 1 of the 3 languages I can speak conversationally. Really stupid on his part.), not realizing that I knew what he was saying. The good news was that the district was aware of his actions and was in the process of getting him terminated.

Those times were incredibly difficult to get through, but their effects have made my life a living hell at times. Being bullied by the adults who were charged with ensuring that I was in a safe environment was the worst kind of bullying to have gone through. It's not an experience I wish on my fans and/or detractors. If you have any stories make them known, and keep in mind that you're not alone.

Comcast Needs To Be Put Out Of Business

Comcast has been terribile over the last several months. Overcharging and sidelining consumers, it's the worst company to do business with. They're more interested in illegal profiteering than expanding their broadband service (cable, phone, internet). On top of that they're now looking to limit free speech, and that's not something we need. The FCC should just shut them down asap, for the good of consumers across America.

Donald Trump’s Treasonous Comments Is Another Representstion Of The Right-Wing’s Treachery

With all the stories floating around about Donald Trump’s act of treason in Helsinki, it’s important to note that what we saw/heard wasn’t a first by any stretch. The fact is that his conduct was another example in a long established pattern set by the right right-wing (via the GOP) 50 years ago. This article from Alternet gives a detailed description of the right-wing’s treasonous actions
The next time you see, or hear about, any news of Trump’s treason, bear in mind that the story is actually describing the GOP treasonous actions.

The Republicans Have Just Signed Their Own Death Certificate By Killing Net Neutrality

Apparently the Republicans can’t seem to shake their fixation on killing net neutrality, and today they’ve succeded. This is going to come back to bite them in the butt in November’s midterms. Voters are going to take their fury out on them for giving them higher internet bills.
