    Ode to Sean Spicer

    Sean Spicer used to be the White House Easter Bunny. Now he is the hired mouthpiece of a compulsive liar. Must be hard for Spicer being under all that pressure to help keep the authoritarian, nationalist regime on track while fighting against the First Amendment and that pesky enemy known as the press while wearing a suit his boss picked…

    The Phones Are Bugged

    Today has been a strange news day. I woke up to tweets seemingly straight out of the Twilight Zone by president numero 45 blaming ex-president Obama for tapping his phones at the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida. Trump’s tweet: How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick)…

    A Tale of Two Sessions

    What’s new in the wacky world of authoritarian-republican-American-regimes? Well, thanks for asking! On Tuesday night Trump managed to read his way through a TelePrompTer speech while actually wearing a suit that fit! This allowed your average cable TV news watcher to view him as almost human! Oh the joy Fox News must have felt that night as 45 reached the…

    This.

    Things are scary in the USA right now and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the constant barrage of executive orders and new laws soon to be affecting human rights and health particularly for women, but a few good activists have told me to pick just a few topics and focus on them so I don’t get overwhelmed. I’m going…

    Protest Art: No More Chances Organize Fight Back

    This art was originally created for my Patreon supporters but I feel it’s a perfect companion piece to Courtney’s post, You’ve Had a Week to Mourn. Now What? So I made the post public. I spent most of the day yesterday reading about protest art from the 1940’s through the 1980’s. I was reading about art to try to keep…

    I Didn’t Vote For Him

    I haven’t been this depressed since my very-favorite-ever pit bull, Cooper passed away. It’s definitely on par with that horrible day that I had a miscarriage of a wanted baby and I laid in the emergency room, half naked, staring at the ceiling, bleeding all over a table for 5 hours. A situation mind you, that Mike Pence would want…

    Michael Moore’s TrumpLand, Art or Opportunity to Cash In?

    Being part of an entertainment industry family, I can’t help but assume that Trump is going to release his own “reality” television version of the elections, win or lose, tears or no tears, dumpster fire, self-immolation or wash. So I kinda love that someone is attempting to beat him to the punch. However, that someone is Michael Moore, who in…

    Trump Just Made a “Joke” About Shooting Hillary Clinton?

    Ok Republicans, so are you done now? Time to cash out for this term, do the right thing and rebuild your party from the ashes of the dumpster fire that is Donald Trump? Because correct me if I am wrong but I believe the secret service will have to investigate a man they are protecting. H/T to Amanda Marcotte. And…
