We shall see which are legitimate and which are for revenge........... "A madman has nuclear weapons. Also, Kim Jong Un has them."

You know who ALAN GRAYSON is talking about. The fat guy with nuclear weapons who called the other fat guy with nuclear weapons “fat,” after the other fat guy called the first fat guy a “dotard.” A “dotard,” not a “snoutband,” or a “slumgullion” – he’s saving those for later. ALAN GRAYSON felt the need to introduce the Nuclear Sanity Act, H.R. 6535. My Nuclear Sanity Act would require the Orange Menace to obtain the approval of the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State – basically, adults – before firing off nuclear weapons. Here is his entire bill, all 221 words of it: SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE. This Act may be cited as the “Nuclear Sanity Act”. SEC. 2. NUCLEAR WEAPON USE APPROVAL PROCESS. (a) In General.—Except in a case of a physical attack on the territory of the United States by the military force of a foreign government, or in a case in which it is impossible for the President to establish communications with the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State for a 24-hour period, the President shall obtain the approval of the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State prior to the use of nuclear weapons by the United States.(b) Form Of Approval.—The approval under this section shall be in writing unless the approving official deems approval in writing impracticable, in which case it may be oral. Written approval under this section may be transmitted to the President by electronic means. (c) Violations.— (1) The United States military shall disregard all orders from the President in violation of this section. (2) Any violation or attempted violation of this section shall be deemed a “high crime or misdemeanor” under the United States Constitution. (d) Definition.—In this section, the term “territory of the United States” means the States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the territories of the United States, whether or not incorporated or organized......

FCC Chairman and Verizon puppet Ajit Pai has just scheduled the official vote to overturn Net Neutrality in mid December. Unless we stop him, Net Neutrality in the United States will be dead before Christmas..... But this is not the end of the fight. There is still time to convince Congress to put a stop to this madness. Already, thousands have begun to organize massive protests at Verizon stores across the country to demand Congress step in and they are asking for our help.Without Net Neutrality, the FCC will allow your Internet providers to charge you for websites like they’re television channels. Bundling them, blocking some behind fees and who knows what else once Internet providers like Verizon are given free rein.....There are two Women on the committee that feel the repeal is wrong.... Contact your Congressperson and Senator and ask for their help to not repeal the Open Internet....RODDY BYERS will be playing in Argentina in February...

LITAL YOHAY is a 30 year old Israeli musician, who started playing music at a young age. Since she was 3 years old she knew that music would be her profession in life. Her love for music started as a dancer at a young age in the late 80s. Back then, JANET JACKSON, WHITNEY HOUSTON, and others were a hit and that's all she had been listening to while dancing. Because of her exposure to those musicians, she began singing their songs and discovering her singing passion. At the age of 10, she studied the piano for three years, sang with a choir for a year, and at the age of 22 studied the guitar for three years. She began composing and writing songs at the age of 22. Being a drummer was a dream that came later and got fulfilled at the age of 22. She has been playing drums for eight years now, performed with a couple of bands as a drummer, but her passion is to share her songs with the world. LITAL has run her own business for five years as a music teacher, teaching drums, vocals and creative writing, passing on her experience and knowledge inspiring them with their music....

David Brackett Shameless

David Brackett Shameless

Actor DAVID BRACKETT, who is now appearing on SHAMELESS as DEBBIE GALLAGHERS love interest- needs your help....Here is his medical situation in his own words.... "Unfortunately guys I have to do this. I really tried hard for months to try to handle this without telling people. I developed a tumor in my neck and had to have it removed in October. Having no insurance I was a cash patient costing $7,000, but it wasn't something I could ignore. Unfortunately that was not the end of the road. The tumor came back as cancer. So I had to go get a PET scan to see if there was cancer anywhere else in my body. The PET came back showing 3 additional areas it had either spread to or started from originally. My family and I are tapped financially at this point, which has lead me to ask for additional help this is really my last resort. Open enrollment for insurance started 11/1 but the insurance can not be used until January. With PPO's you still have to pay 20% . I need more tests, and I still need to go see an oncologist. Then with their advice begin a treatment plan. I'm so sorry to have to ask for help but I don't know what else to do at this point. Thank you everyone" here is a Go Fund Me address https://www.gofundme.com/salivary-gland-cancer-treatment

BRIAN KROLL has written yet another fun Holiday tune... Here is how GOODBYE PSYCHOTIC CHRISTMAS' came about "While in college, I was in a rockabilly/psychobilly/rock band. Pulling into my dorm room parking lot in summer school, I was listening to a GENE VINCENT album in my car. Late at night, the tune 'Important Words' was playing. It struck me to blaspheme the song by creating lyrics with the opposite meaning of the tune. 'Goodbye Psychotic Christmas' came into my head, inspired by that GENE VINCENT tune. I wrote the lyrics in a notebook and forgot about them. It was a lot of fun though, but hey, I needed the laugh. Some years later, I was working with MIKE WUERTH, who co-wrote the tune 'Syringes' which is the soundtrack to NIKKI PALOMINO'S short film 'DAZED'. MIKE and I were demoing future songs. One of these was 'Goodbye Psychotic Christmas'. We actually recorded the song and back burnered it. The 'MY SON THE BUM tune 'Flight Deck For Christmas' was released instead and again, I forgot about it. In November 2017, I was contacted by an FM DJ at a State University of New York college station named 'Old Man Freak Boy' for his 'Hey Kids, Get Off Of My Lawn' show.The DJ asked if I had another winter holiday song besides 'Flight Deck' for his year end show. I replied 'no, but thank you for thinking of me'. Afterwards, I wondered if I did have a song for him or just wished that I had a tune to send. Tossing and turning in my sleep, I was trying to remember if there was a new holiday song to send. At five am, I woke up, all excited. 'Goodbye Psychotic Christmas'! 'Goodbye Psychotic Christmas'! Yes! There is a new/unreleased winter holiday song that I can send! I completely forgot about that one! And, Yes! It's recorded and almost finished! " Here is a link for you to hear it...
