Happy Time Party Vapors!

What a great night for corporate polluters and sexually frustrated prohibitionists! Vagina regulation is IN and environmental regulation is OUT!

Yes, medical marijuana lost in Florida but the reek of happy time party vapors is strong on the west coast, with Alaska and Oregon joining Washington and Colorado as places where you don't need a bothersome tumor or 'convenient' degenerative neurological condition to justify that dime bag. Still, we came agonizingly close here, with a strong 57% of people rejecting the millions of dollars spent propagating reefer madness.

So what happened? This happened.

But all is not lost and there were a few consolation prizes. Amendment 1 passed, and Amendment 3 rightfully failed.

But the big failure was with the Democrats who seem either unable or unwilling to make the case for their own existence. Hiding under rocks from the Obama presidency worked out real well for them. What they should have been doing is boldly brandishing their accomplishments in unapologetic swagger.

We are now in a record stretch of uninterrupted job growth. Obamacare is working and, obviously, not killing jobs. The deficit is way down, and the slow growth in healthcare expenditures bodes well for our nation's longterm budget issues. The markets are at record highs and while income inequality has a lot of people still in pain, it has been the Republicans blocking commonsense remedies to that issue like raising the minimum wage and investing in our crumbling infrastructure.

If I can articulate that here in a few sentences why can't they?

Until we get money out of politics we will continue to have the worst government that money can buy for the simple reason that it is bought.


  1. The democrats should spam about Obamacare more. Also hashtags, more hashtags!

  2. The public hates pussies and I'm not talking about vaginas.

  3. Yes correct. Democrats should spam about obamacare.

    Let's get the money out of politics and give even more advantage to incumbents and political machines.

  5. Getting money out of politics gives more power to the people and less power to the political machines, if it's done right.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
