Feminist Fuck Yeah: Philly Just Elected Top Prosecutor Who Believes #BlackLivesMatter

On Tuesday, among resounding electoral victories for the left  — including a trans candidate, Danica Roem and a socialist candidate, Lee Carter in Virginia — there was one that stood out especially to those interested in criminal justice, mass incarceration and police brutality: progressive civil rights and defense attorney Larry Krasner’s election as District Attorney in Philadelphia.

Last night, eight candidates for Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) faced off in a national debate.

Forget the headlines: Here are 5 fundamental facts about Obamacare (with bonus GIFs)

1. You have until December 15th to sign up.

I’m currently uninsured and I’ve gone onto the New York exchange to compare my options.  Like I’ve said before, I had 124 choices, so going through them is taking time.  But let’s be real: I’m probably going to be like this until the first deadline on December 14th:

And for people who are uninsured who want to avoid the $95 penalty, you have until March 31st to sign up.  Only the people who want coverage beginning on January 1st, have to sign up by December 15th.  We all procrastinate.  Most Americans will sign up at the very last minute.

Did Wendy Davis just hint at a run for Texas governor?

This would be the best news! On October 3rd, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis will announce her future plans.  The consensus is that she’s running for governor of Texas but until she officially announces we can only hope.

Her run against the sitting and forgetful Governor Rick Perry would be an epic battle of fundraising and outside cash is going to be key in how formidable Davis can be against Perry who has been in office for over a decade.

Certainly, Davis’ candidacy would fire up this website give folks outside of Texas a real opportunity to be excited about a statewide race in the traditionally red state.  If you would like to get Senator Davis’ announcement

People who say more good guys with guns is the solution lack firing neurons

The NRA’s argument that more guns is necessary to prevent mass shootings, or any shootings was always nonsense.  The ridiculousness of this argument is on display yet again, with the recent news out of Georgia where a man shot and killed a young Latino man who accidentally pulled into his driveway.

Via NBC Latino:

Rodrigo Diaz, 22, was driving around with his girlfriend and two friends when he pulled into a driveway, thinking they had arrived at another friend’s house, his brother says. But instead he pulled into the driveway of Phillip Sailors, 69, who thought his home was being robbed, his lawyer says. Sailors then shot Diaz, according to the police report, citing what Sailors told officers at the ...
