After Hanging Out With Her "Partner In Crime," Michelle Obama Goes Back to Attacking His Party.

It's good to see that former 1st Lady Michelle Obama is urging voters to participate in this upcoming midterm election.

It's disturbing to know that former President George W. Bush was calling wavering Senate Republicans about their Supreme court vote.

It's confusing that Michelle Obama and George W. Bush get along the way they do, considering their opposing political views.


Because not too long before Michelle Obama started talking about why we should give "strangers power over our lives," Bush was convincing elected officials that someone who (allegedly) asserted his power over someone and consequentially wrecked her life would make an awesome judge over the most important issues facing America. 

 Basically it's the Team Politics Problem: for them and others like them, this is a game where there are predominately two sides (Democrat and Republican) and they take turns running our government. They play the game until an election, then they go back to their comfortable lives. While what either party does can have massive ramifications to the average American,  people like the Obamas and the Bushes are completely insulated.

It's Their Calling Card

White women seem to be calling the police on black people (mostly men) at a very noticeable rate. Most time, it for the most mundane actions. Is it a race thing or a power thing?

Apparently, Blog Posts = News Articles When You Are Trying to Support Your Political Friends

As honored as I would be for someone to link here as if this was the Washington Post or LA Times, those institutions are mostly made up of journalists and I'm not one.

So why do I bring this up? TYT explains.

Run on Behalf of the People, and You Can Get Elected

So Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez beat the odds and won the primary from incumbent Joe Crowley.

While everyone from CNN to Fox News tries to make this about Ocasio-Cortez's age, gender, race or experience, I believe it came down to two important things: (1) she currently lives in the district than she was running for (Crowley is currently residing in Virginia) and (2) she was running on a populist platform.

The second point will most likely be overlooked by the pundits and even some self-proclaimed left-leaning groups, mainly because Crowley was in line to replace Nancy Pelosi (if/when she retired) as one of the major mover and shakers of the Democratic Party. But no one should dismiss that because Ocasio-Cortez kept on message and funneled her progressive policies through populist lenses (people forget that Trump also ran on a populist message) she was able to make inroads and get votes that normal newcomers usually fail to acquire.

When Capitalism Meets Law Enforcement...

...you get people like Sheriff Donny Youngblood of Kern County, California, who advocates shooting to kill instead of shooting to wound because it's more cost effective in the long run. As opposed to say, making sure that you're shooting the right person in the first place.
