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.

Team Dem or Team Death

And more secure health insurance.

I re-posted the Hillary meme (below) on Facebook and got these replies:

My entire adult life we’ve watched [Dems] fold at every opportunity to make a difference. From the 2000 election, to Obama not codifying Roe and bailing on substantial healthcare changes. Now Biden starting with not even doing the $2000 checks he promised or eliminating student loans.

and

This sort of condescending, refusal to give any critical thought to legitimate issues and concerns is why people don’t trust liberals and exactly why people don’t vote.

Let me be clear: this is  like saying, "I will now force you to date someone who wants to beat you, maybe to death, because my partner didn't provide oral sex and gourmet meals on demand."

But seriously: this person is saying that since Biden didn't send him more free money and cancel his student debt, poor women in red states will be forced to give birth while school children will continue to be slaughtered by AR15s and trans kids bullied into suicide.

From Losing My Religions:

"The people who claim to care about the climate, life on Earth, etc., had the choice of Gorsuch or Garland. They chose their ego, giving us Alito and Kavanaugh and Amy Handmaid's-Tale and their witch-hunting heroes, dooming those already marginalized and oppressed." 

What sick, arrogant, self-centered fuckers.

If you are not 100% on Team Dem, you are on Team Death, and you ain't no friend to me.


PS, from Andrew Tobias:

But if you doubt whether the Democrat Party is worth supporting, take 79 seconds to watch this.

You can start at the 59-second mark . . . “It was Winston Churchill who said . . .” and quit at 2:18 “. . . in the privacy of your own bedroom.”
