About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Are you better off?

 I saw a political sign that says:

United States
Vote Democrat

And I thought: Promises promises.
(Seriously. Think about countries like Denmark who have Bernie's policies. They are happier and live longer.) 

Then I got a Republican mailer that had pictures of empty rooms along with a picture of Biden and text that say, "Joe Biden's America." Really? Biden is President??

Finally, got a mailer that said in big letters:

Are you better off than you were four years ago?

And I thought: Well done, Democrats! This is a great line of attack - clear, unrefutable.

Then I saw it was from the Republicans! Other than the richest people, who says they are better off now than four years ago?
