Dicks, Cocaine, Racism and Sexual Harassment in the TN Statehouse

May I present to you not one, but two big-time small-time dicks: Tennessee’s Republican House Speaker Glen Casada and his chief of staff Cade Cothren, two dicks united together until Monday, when Cothren resigned. You hate to see dicks split like that.

A COUPLE OF THINGS – Jane Fonda – Jane Fonda

We are facing a crisis, people. This isn’t a dress rehearsal or fake news. All hands on deck! Dark, selfish forces are working to bring us down. The 1% will go down as well but just a little later. So let’s us all wake up and burst out of our bubbles and start caring about each other no matter our race, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion. No kidding. The future is at stake. And that means caring with our hearts and our actions: making sure that state and federal policies support and protect EVERYONE including the planet.

He Used to Call Viktor Orban an Ally. Now He Calls Him a Symbol of Fascism. – The New York Times

Mr. Ivanyi did not keep silent. In both word and deed, he repeatedly challenged the prime minister, continuing to provide services to the homeless and refugees, even giving one Afghan a room in his own home. And he often questioned Mr. Orban’s presentation of Hungary as a monoethnic country, and his claims of governing by Christian principles. “What he does is against the teachings of Christ,” Mr. Ivanyi said recently. “It is the exact opposite of what the Bible preaches about treating the poor, about justice, about responsible service.”

Milo Yiannopoulos banned from entering Australia following Christchurch shooting comments – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Yiannopoulos had described Islam as a “barbaric, alien” religious culture on social media after the terror incident, prompting the Government’s change of heart.  On Twitter, Labor MP Tony Burke praised the decision to ban Yiannopoulos. “Milo banned. Good. His overnight comments weren’t that different from how he has always behaved,” he said. “There was already enough evidence to ban him which is why the department had already recommended he be banned. “The Australian tours for the world’s hate speakers must stop.”

Abdul Aziz: The man who saved lives by running at the Christchurch gunman – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Originally from Kabul, Afghanistan, Mr Aziz said he left as a refugee when he was a boy and lived for more than 25 years in Australia before moving to New Zealand a couple of years ago. “I’ve been to a lot of countries and this is one of the beautiful ones,” he said. And, he always thought, a peaceful one as well. Mr Aziz said he did not feel fear or much of anything when facing the gunman — it was like he was on autopilot. And he believes that God, that Allah, did not think it was his time to die.

Julian Castro on Reparations: ‘Why Wouldn’t You Compensate People Who Actually Were Property?’ | 3CHICSPOLITICO

“To my mind, that may or may not be the best way to address it,” Castro said. “However, it’s interesting to me that when it comes to Medicare for all, health care, you know, the response there has been we need to write a big check, that when it comes to tuition-free or debt-free college, the answer has been we need to write a big check.” “So if the issue is compensating descendants of slaves, I don’t think the argument about writing a big check ought to be the argument you make if you’re making the argument that a big check needs to be written for a whole bunch of other stuff,” Castro continued. “If, under the Constitution, we compensate people because we take their property, why wouldn’t you compensate people who actually were property.”
