    • Week-end Wrap – Political Economy – September 27, 2020
      by Tony Wikrent Slouching toward denouement Capitulation Will Not Halt Trump’s Coup David Sirota, September 24, 2020 An important review of political events last week. Yoy may not agree with Sirota’s interpretation, but his analyses has proven correct repeatedly. Remember that Sirota accurately outlined the future course of American politics in his 2008 book […]

$205/month

I am so proud of Lt. Governor John Fetterman and State Senator Muth for not backing down when this tyrannical, maniacal Republican asshole tried to shut them up.

Fetterman is the former mayor of Braddock, which is about 5 miles from my house. He looks like a taller, more intimidating version of Billy Bob Thornton. In this clip, he’s wearing a suit, highly unusual for him.

I don’t think any Republican in the rotunda has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting Fetterman to back down. He’s got the confidence of a big guy with a solid reputation behind him. And I think that definitely helped Muth continue going when GOP asshole tried to shut her up.

Welcome to the new reality. It’s not so easy to stuff a sock in it anymore.

The vote to strip poor Pennsylvanians of $205/month in general assistance funds will deprive them of their bus passes, make it more difficult for them to go to work and throw vulnerable people back on the streets.

Yeah, that’s something to be proud of, loud mouth.

$205/month.

  1. Republicans like to inflict cruelty and suffering on people. It’s a feature not a bug.

    • I’m beginning to believe that’s what they live for.

      • Yeah; basic authoritarian mentality; kiss up, kick down.

        And our ex-friends, the cr@wd@ds, wonder why we treat them and their party with such contempt.

  2. This is just especially ugly. The face, the voice, the words. He couldn’t just give her three minutes of silence before he and his party screwed people out of a measly amount of money a month.

  3. Not to turn everything into a political plus or minus, but this is where Democrats have to focus, both nationally and locally. Not on open borders or the ambiguous benefits vs. costs of Medicare for All. Run on, “Democrats care about the welfare of regular people, Republicans do not.” If we win elections, then we can tinker around with legislation. I do not know why we need to keep debating abstract plans which will either not get through, or which can be too easily distorted to scare people away from voting for Democrats. Every day, episodes like the one shown here go on in various state legislatures, and we do not hear enough about them. Republicans spend their time trying to misdirect the voters toward ridiculous issues like flag burning and emails.

    • The whole “open borders” thing is a canard from the GOP. If you don’t sign onto their torture of children you’re for “open borders”
