Joe Biden is Worse Than Joe Rogan

The verdict for this episode is: Joe Rogan says terrible things. Joe Biden destroys lives.

In this episode, I demonstrate how Biden voted against a woman’s right to choose, voted to discriminate against same-sex couples, regularly voted with Wall Street and against the American people, and lied about his record.

Thoughts After Super Tuesday

The verdict for this episode is: Bernie can still win.

In this episode, I admit my thoughts on South Carolina’s impact were off, I demonstrate how the race is far closer than the media wants you to believe, I talk about Biden’s endorsements, and Warren’s campaign.

Biden’s Victory Doesn’t Matter

My Lyft Drivers Reminded me why Bernie Must Win

Yesterday was a rainy day in the Portland area. Looking forward to attending a meeting with some fellow members of our local chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, I was distracted from thoughts of website accessibility (the topic we were going to discuss). I was thinking about how I was going to get to the meeting.

A bus line runs from near my house to near the meeting location, but I don’t know how to walk from the bus to the building. Normally, I could ask people for directions. In the rain, though, getting help is always much harder. Knowing people were coming because I initiated the topic of website accessibility, I would have felt bad had I been late.

Eventually, I decided to take Lyft to and from the meeting. I knew the rides and the tips I would leave would cost me roughly seventy dollars. Part of me resented having to pay seventy dollars to attend a meeting to discuss making a website more accessible to people with disabilities. My resentment was furthered by the fact that had I known the walk from the bus to the building, I would have taken the bus. Still, I was determined to go to the meeting. By the time I arrived at the meeting, I was reminded why I was there in the first place. I was even more committed to Bernie Sanders’s campaign and the ideals of democratic socialism.

Biden Lied About Getting Arrested on the way to Meet Mandela

The verdict for this episode is: can you imagine what would happen if Bernie Sanders lied about meeting Martin Luther King?

In this episode, i demonstrate how Joe Biden has been lying about getting arrested in South Africa on the way to meet Nelson Mandela. I also highlight the unwillingness of many in the media to ask Biden about his lies. I conclude the media would act very differently if Bernie Sanders had lied about a meeting with Martin Luther King.

Thoughts After the Nevada Caucus

The verdict for this episode is: Bernie Sanders will be the next president of the United States!

In this episode, I discuss Bernie’s path to the nomination, how no one else has a path to the nomination, why the media doesn’t understand why we don’t care about the stock market the way they do, and how poverty is calculated to underestimate the number of Americans living in poverty.

Thoughts After the Nevada Democratic Debate

The verdict for this episode is: that was quite a night!

In this episode, I discuss the Nevada debate and its aftermath. Topics include: choosing a nomination through the delegate process; Elizabeth Warren’s changing positions; Bloomberg’s terrible night; Bloomberg’s racism and sexism; and what the pundits don’t get about Bernie Sanders’s message.

People are Dying

The verdict for this episode is: mean tweets are not the story!

In this episode, I use my own story of not having health insurance, being unable to pay for regular heat, and being on SNAP to show how the media’s focus on tweets demonstrates their elitist privilege.
