AE Donation Drive: Now All of a Sudden, the Fake Left is Calling for a “principled press”?

Last night Meryl Streep called for a “principled press” to step up in the age of Trump

“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage”

Hey Meryl. I’ve been here doing that since the “W” days…

… and throughout the glorious President Peace Prize regime…

while you and all your Hollywood friends fell silent…



Thank you all so much

Hi Everyone: Sick Today so I’ll be Running Around in the Wasteland for Awhile UPDATED

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: I’m worse today than I was yesterday. Operating on about 20 minutes of sleep and no breathing capacity makes for a very interesting perception problem. I’m in 2D land where everything looks like it’s in two dimensions. I’m off to get some BronkAid, NyQuil and maybe a shot of whiskey. That should do the trick.

I’ve been feeling pretty bad these last couple of days so I am taking the day off today. I treated myself to Fallout 4 yesterday since Steam was having their Xmas sale so I intend to spend the day yelling at my computer and getting eaten by ghouls in the wasteland. I consider it training for a post Jan. 20th New American Century.

I see the establishment “news” outlets are taking a day off as well and the ones that aren’t running news reruns this morning (MSNBC literally running yesterday’s news in place of Morning Joe) are leading their programs with the death of George Michael.. a guy busted for giving random guys head in a public bathroom in a park where kids play and busted many times over for various other acts… at least one other involving a public bathroom.

The big stories this weekend involved the UN Security Council FINALLY being able to pass yet another resolution condemning Israel’s illegal settlements in the West Bank of Palestine and of course the Russian plane dropping out of the sky that just HAPPENED to be heading to Syria.

I’ll be covering those tomorrow morning.

Wait a minute.. did I just lead with the Michael story as well? Oh Goddamn it…

I hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the new year. I’ll be doing my best tomorrow to make you depressed about it, like I always do.

Have a good one and I will see you tomorrow.

p.s. Any Fallout players? I need tips. Everything is kicking my ass out there. 😦

AE End of Year Donation Drive

I hope this season finds you all in good spirits gathered with those you cherish, laughing about old memories and making news ones.

Because that is what Christmas is all about.

I wish you joy and comfort all the rest of this holiday season and throughout the new year to follow.

This is the annual celebration of our humanity.

Not one of conquest, nationalism or militarism, this holiday celebrates empathy, sacrifice and universal love for all mankind. Even for those least among us. Especially for those least among us.

On these enlightened days we celebrate the better angels of our nature which drive some of us throughout the year to fight for something more humane for our future.

I wish you all happiness and a peaceful forgiving heart and someone close with whom to share these blessings.

You Think What I Wrote Yesterday Was Hyperbole? Check This Out

by Scott Creighton

Yesterday I wrote Obama’s Reactionary Attack on the Disabled is Followed Up by HUGE Unpayable Bills! Just Like Reagan did in the ’80s.  It was a reaction to my personal situation where I have been kicked off SSDI by a dishonest Administrative Law Judge, Judge Weakley, and have now been notified by the Social Security Administration that I owe them $34,000 and have to pay it by next week.

Upon further review, the title of yesterday’s article couldn’t have been more accurate. I found this today:

Obama’s Reactionary Attack on the Disabled is Followed Up by HUGE Unpayable Bills! Just Like Reagan did in the ’80s

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE 2: You Think What I Wrote Yesterday Was Hyperbole? Check This Out

UPDATE: Please see important update at end of article

A month ago I wrote about how I have been caught up in a little known reactionary program approved by the republican congress and our neoliberal republican-light president Barack Obama. One that was designed to “save” Social Security by attacking disabled people and kicking them off SSDI benefits in HUGE numbers.

The program of continued disability review (CDR) was ramped up in 2014 when a neoliberal panel of technocrats were appointed to figure out how to “save” Social Security. What they decided to do was pump 1.4 billion EXTRA DOLLARS into the review program and speedily kick untold thousands of people off disability just as quickly as humanly possible.

Matthew and the Tree of Shame May Conspire Against this American Everyman

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Matthew decided to track a little to the east and over here on the left coast of Florida, all we got was a little rain and a gust or two, but nothing big. The Tree of Shame stands tall and proud as I am still online and enjoying the finer things in life like electricity and the interwebs. Oh joy.

Turns out the prognostications about roving gangs of zombie Zika babies were premature. It was a premie. Haha. Sorry. I’m kind of upset about that. I was looking forward to seeing them attack all the over-dramatic weathermen standing out in the rain hoping for doomsday. Ah… maybe next year.
