If Moores racism hadn't trumped his pedophilia, he'd be a senator today


If eight African American women had come out against Roy Moore, their voices wouldn't of been heard, because Moore is a god fearing, good old Roy and in Alabama black lives don't matter, but their votes apparently do. The African American voters showed up in force and enough white folk spoiled their ballots or stayed at home to give Jones the win.


The Democrats or the American people for that matter should not be over celebrating the Alabama Senate seat election results, not when you consider the effort that was required to barely beat a homophobe bigot and proud racist who was facing pedophilia accusations. Trump still sits in the White House and many of the women that came out with their stories against Roy Moore, voted for Trump in the last election. Did they not believe Trump's accusers or hear his boasts in the Access media tape? Did they only watch Fox news? Who knows, but the US is one messed up country.

Then just when you are ready to write these backwards people off, you hear the voice of another Alabama good old boy and just think there might yet be hope.

Nathan Mathis, an Alabama peanut farmer stood outside Moore's last rally with a sign asking voters to not vote for a pervert. Nathan Mathis daughter was gay and she killed herself. Watching the video you can see his pain and hear his own guilt in the role he may have played in her death


Or maybe you have to loose someone or something that you love, before you really change and if that is the case, there are still many dark days ahead for the Americans.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
