In this video I will take you to to the concert of Aigel, one of my favorite Russian bands. I discovered this electronic hip-hop duo a few years ago. I appreciate that besides Russian, their songs are also in Tatar, which is the language of an ethnic minority in Russia. read more

Here are the words that Rep. Jim McGovern spoke which House of Representatives Republicans got stricken from the record after an hour of debate: "Donald Trump might want to be a king. But he is not a king. He is not a presumptive king. He's not even a president. He's a presumptive nominee. And I know you're trying to do your job and follow precedent but, frankly, at some point it's time for this body to recognize that there is no precedent for this situation. We have a presumptive nominee for president facing 88 felony counts and we are being prevented from even acknowledging it. These are not alternative facts. There are real facts. A candidate for president of the United States is on trial for sending a hush money payment to a porn star to avoid a sex scandal during his 2016 campaign, and then fraudulently disguising those payments in violation of the law. He is also charged with conspiring to overturn the election. He is also charged with stealing classified information. And a jury has already found him liable for rape in a civil court. And yet, in this Republican-controlled House, it's okay to talk about the trial but you have to call it a sham." read more

"They're on an anti-tax jihad " one that benefits the prosperous classes."

So see, you are jihadist and didn't even know.

Just some advice, too... you are never going to be one of the ultra wealthy, so don't waste your time fighting their battles for them. They don't give you a second thought, and they already have your vote.

Oh, and... Leo Leonard:
