We can change the status quo

"We can change the status quo if we have a vision and think big," said Senator Sanders. A political revolution is necessary, changing priorities, policies and assumptions to avert exploding inequality, a corporate plutocracy and an all-pervasive mistrust in pay-to-play government.

A Simple Solution to Racist, PTSD Cops with Itchy Trigger Fingers

Here is my humble suggestion for a plank in the Democratic Party Platform,

Remember Hobby Lobby?

Women's health is covered by Liz Warren about 20 minutes in. I was thinking some employer ought to have a religious objection to insurance covering his eployees' dick pills. Catholics teach that sex is only for procreation and never because it's fun. But any made up religion could take the case back to scotus. That separation of church and state is so old, what did those guys in 1776 know about salvation. Gays and lesbians hadn't even existed yet.
