Leave Bernie Alone!

Looks like "Progressive" America is still yelling for a WAAAAHHHHmbulance after a Bernie Sanders media event was busted up by #BlackLivesMatter. After months of Sanders failing to address the ongoing wave of racist police terrorism, #BLM took it on themselves to bring it up in Seattle -- much to the consternation of lily-white "Progressive" America.

Never mind that Sanders -- along with the rest of Liberal and "Progressive" America -- happily got on board with Bill Clinton's brutal assault on the Serbian people in the Spring of 1999. Never mind that after Nineleven™, Sanders just as happily voted to fund the assaults on the people of Afghanistan and the liberty and dignity of US citizens by the Department of Homeland Security. Never mind that Sanders has had little problem voting to fund Israeli barbarity in Palestine and the coup government in the Ukraine. Never mind that Sanders lobbied heavily for a slice of war machine pork barrel in Vermont in the form of a USAF F-35 base.

Never mind all that; "Progressive" America honestly still thinks that Sanders can bring this country the kind of revolutionary change it needs, so when somebody comes along -- especially black somebodies -- to call him out on his hypocrisies, all "Progressive" America seems to care about is that they're making Bernie look bad. "Why don't you disrupt Republican events?" they whine, predictably. "Why don't you disrupt Hillary's events?" they complain bitterly, crying, shrieking like that Chris Crocker kid in the infamous "Leave Britney Alone" video.

What the hell kind of rank-ass politician goes on and on about "revolution" while voting to continue funding Israeli barbarity in Palestine? And what kind of politician talks big talk about "revolution" while knocking himself out to get a base in his home state for a fighter jet whose development ran into trillions of dollars, and already has a reputation for being one of the biggest pain-in-the-ass fighters the Air Force ever had? And what kind of politician can't shut up about a "revolution" while running as a Democrat, for Christ's sake?

"Feel The Bern", my ass.

DC Stoners rejoice! The much-loved Capitol Hemp -- one of the main reasons we voted to legalize weed in DC -- is back and better than ever up in Adams-Morgan thanks to longtime DC activist, shop co-owner and my best-bud-forever Adam Eidinger. And not only do they sell pipes and bongs, but you can actually talk about weed in the shop. Is that nuts, or what?

Along with the usual brain-numbing array of smoking items, hemp clothing and food, there's also an eclectic selection of books and art -- including postcards and signed prints by yours truly, painstakingly curated from 15 years worth of cartoon and poster art going back to "A16" and printed on good, stout hemp cardstock. It's historic, it's iconic, and it's cheap. Such a deal. And remember -- after I'm dead, the value of this work will skyrocket well into three digits.
