Lobby zero$ doing a bang bang up job.

It's been written (tweeted) that masses died (again) only to be politicized (again) as Trump on the stump in error boasts "it's terror, why I'll build a wall and bomb 'em all"... The gall. Meanwhile, it may not matter what the Prez says, or what the Hawk squawks, cuz nothing will get done and the race may have just been won. At the end the day it's the NRA stupid.
An assault on us all.

Oh those whacky media maniacs!

The Media calling the Dem nomination before tomorrow's results is bogus no matter who you prefer. A) those voting Tuesday have yet to vote and B) neither have the phantom super delegates. This is not how a democracy elects someone. It's like saying "the Yankees win" before they have in some ways (ok, the Yankee$ of old), or "Dewey beats Truman!". There's a primary going on tomorrow, if this is not an establishment ploy meant to stop people from going to the polls I don't know what is. If I were a Hillary C. supporter I'd be downright ashamed by this premature gloating, which is what it is. It's not gonna win her any new fans either, that's for sure. Don't fall for the badmouthing Sanders bait/rushing him out of a race 5 months before the election crap either folks, c'mon. There'll be plenty of time after the Dem convention to pull together against the presumptive Repugnican antichrist if need be then. All that said, to hell with Drumpf the imbecilic phony fascist nominee of the other party, he cannot and will not be President. If he is, we deserve him.

"If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize." -Muhammad Ali

RIP Ali, the greatest of all tiiiiiiiiime. Here's a classic illustration by Robert Grossman done for Esquire in 1972, and a clay caricature he did as well in 1974 (he sculpted Frazier too). Ali was truly remarkable, an icon of icons as a Sports figure, personality, conscientious objector and outspoken counterculture ambassador. I'm happy to have gotten to see some of his majestic matches live on tv back in the day.
