Moved the Site Today to a New CentOS7-Based VPS

I just completed moving the site to a new CentOS.7-based server.If you can read this, then that means you are resolving to the new server (with a new IP address).

Actually the Migration Team at Liquid Web actually did everything.

My old server was running CentOS 6, which expires in November. (No more updates provided.)

It feels good to get that server-move out of the way.

Every time I logged into WHM there was a big note waiting for me at the top of the page that said » "This version of CentOS expires November 30, 2020. You should move to an upgraded server before then."

This reminder had been there, at the top of the page, staring at me, for months.

For what it's worth, I like Katie Porter. I like her a lot. She is my hero.

The biggest problem that America is facing is » corruption. This issue gets more citizen support than any other.

Except for the wealthiest of the wealthy, everybody agrees that the corrupting effects of money-in-politics is a problem that continues to grow worse.

Until you fix the problem of the corrupting effects of money-in-politics (for good) .. things are only going to continue to deteriorate for us-the-people .. as they have been for the last 40 years now. It is no big secret.

Mick Mulvaney knows what I am talking about.

Mick Mulvaney does not respond to people who do not give him money

Not.

Spreading the Progressive Love Around

This page continues from an entry titled » A Reputation Built on the Ability to Funnel Large Sums of Money into Politics (20 Sept 2020).

Kiss my progressive ass, Sydney Ember.

Katie Halper's article on Sydney Ember, the Times' Senior Anti-Bernie Correspondent (2 July 2019 at Jacobin)

It's just a figure of speech, you know. I dont really want your nasty lips on my ass.

I want to ask Ms Ember what she thinks about how the 2016 Democratic nomination process was rigged in favor of Hillary, and against Bernie?

Donna Brazile found solid proof that Hillary rigged the primary nomination process against Bernie (t=2:50)

Bernie would be president right now if the nomination process hadnt been rigged in favor of the establishment candidate.

» You Are a Fund-Raiser

You are a fund-raiser, Nancy Pelosi. That is your thing. Money is your thing. You are literally about the money .. certainly much more than your colleagues are.

Nobody puts money into politics like Nancy "Cha-Ching" Pelosi. That is her claim to fame. Her claim to political fame. It is her ability to funnel money into politics like nobody else.

This is why they made you Speaker. This is why they wanted you as their Leader. Because you are about the money.

Unfortunately there is a problem with this paradigm .. this Pelosi paradigm. A big problem. Russ Feingold knows what I am talking about.

Russ Feingold says that money in politics corrupts the decision-making process of the people's representatives

We-the-People want a government that responds to our needs. But it is designed now to respond only to the whims of the wealthy.

And nothing else. JLaw will be more than happy to break it down for you.

Public support means nothing .. because money is the only thing that matters to members of congress | RepresentUs (27 Feb 2019)

I am no Constitutional scholar, but I feel confident that this is not what the Framers had in mind.

Because this is not a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Not even a little. Krystal knows what I am talking about.

Today is actually the 13th of September, but I want to get a week's worth of a running headstart on 20 Sept 2020 .. because I have a few things I want to say. And this could take a while.

You cannot possibly imagine how much I enjoyed writing today's title. There is just something about telling assholes to go fuck themselves .. that I find so wonderfully therapeutic. Cathartic, even.

John Oliver knows what I am talking about.

Everybody knows that repression plays a major role in a number of psychological disorders and mental illnesses.

Maybe this is why I am feeling so psychologically healthy right now. Heck, I might even skip my anti-depressants today .. I am feeling so happy right now.

I am going to have so much fun writing this that I can hardly stand it. I wouldve done this long ago .. had I known it was going to feel this good. Live-n-learn.
