Mississippi is a red state moocher, getting two bucks back for every one buck they give.  
They also just passed a harsh, “let’s hate gays” bill.
So 1) -  #NoMoreFilming in that dirtbag of a state.  I’m sure there are other places in America we can find backwood swamps.
But 2) Every piece of mail we send them - from their welfare checks to their unemployment checks to their social security checks to their food stamps… EVERY ONE OF THEM…
…should have a Harvey Milk stamp.
Just think of the money we’d save when they were so scared of the stamp they threw the check out.Mississippi is the #2 moocher in the united states, getting $2.02 for every dollar they pitch in to the federal government.Their governor just signed a sweeping gay-hating bill.  Clearly, there needs to be education.So what if THIS stamp was on every piece of government assistance that went to Mississippi?  You want your money?  Well, here’s a gay icon.  Too much of a homophobe to even look at his face?  Write “Return to Sender.”

Hey, Mississippi. You can go now.

If you are a production and you film in Mississippi, you are anti-gay and pro-dead kids in schools.

Got it?

They signed an anti-gay bill: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/03/mississippi-anti-gay-bill_n_5087483.html

And they created a “Second amendment weekend”: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/04/04/3423207/mississippi-governor-signs-bill-creating-second-amendment-weekend-with-state-subsidized-gun-sales/

So let’s stop treating this state like they’re civilized. Let’s stop putting cameras on it like it deserves the light of day.

This state sucks. And should be shunned.

And when the next hurricane comes, WE can decide whether they are deserving of our kindness.

ON SCOTUS BECOMING $COTU$
We live in an age where Chris Christie apologizes to a large donor for misspeaking, because he knows the right words can get his campaign billions.
We live in a world where two brothers can spend money to kill a local, Tennessee train program.
Or convince 40% of American that they don’t need government health insurance.
We live in a world where money talks, loudly.  And the more you have, the louder your voice.
Was there any doubt the Supreme Court was going to rule this way?  The same people who said “corporations are people?”  Of course they were.
So we go to the page, or twitter to complain.  And what trends on twitter?  ”CancelColbert.”
Meanwhile, every state that didn’t like an election result in is making it more difficult to vote.
So here’s the deal.  This mid-term is the most important election of your lifetime.  PERIOD.   It will then be followed by the most important of your lifetime.  PERIOD.
The house and the senate are set to unravel healthcare for millions.  And shift more money from the poor to the rich.
And 2016 will decide the fate of the Supreme Court, who have been systematically making this country less fair for years.
So you can tweet and meme.  You can raise the issues you want to raise.  But if you don’t vote, if you don’t get your friends to vote… if you don’t take this anger you have today and use it to leap over the hurdles you will have to vote…
…there’s nothing this place, twitter, instagram or democracy can do for you.
THE ONLY POWER YOU HAVE IS YOUR VOTE.
If you don’t use it, you’re the one that’s rolled over and accepted it.
So let’s #GetAngry and #StayAngry.  But more importantly, it’s time to #GetFocussed and #StayFocussed.

Its no coincidence the first governor to sign a “Stand Your Ground” bill is their “Great White Hope” @JebBush

It’s Opening night for @HeathersMusical: If you don’t see this, that’s your damage.

So, I don’t often “plug” things, or review things.  I’m not a critic, I don’t have the fancy words or insight on Broadway or Off-Broadway stuffs… I’m just a guy that likes to rant about politics.

But contrary to what it must seem like, I get out.  I do things.  And occasionally I see things that make amaze me.  That’s what happened here.

Last week, I had a chance to see the preview for “Heathers - The Musical” which was… fantastic. A dark and funny musical about teen bullying that had equal parts bite and heart.

And music that still runs in the background of my head.  Honestly, my subconscious hasn’t battled a soundtrack like that since “Book of Mormon.”  No small feat.

So if you’re in New York, I highly recommend. If you’re going to New York, I highly recommend.  If you’re in New Jersey and the bridge isn’t blocked, try to get into New York and see it.  I highly recommend.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this production.  You should be proud.

ONE MORE ACA LIE FOR THE ROAD!
With one day left to sign up for Obamacare, here is one last Obamacare lie, debunked.  They are amazing, are they not?
Prediction:  Tomorrow will be the lie about how Obama’s numbers aren’t true, and they’ll be asking us to believe them, even though they’ve been lying for four straight years.
We’re not done fighting on this folks.  Today just ends this type of battle.

"Wendt, incidentally, is a Republican precinct delegate for Michigan’s 2nd congressional district. In June, she signed a toughly worded petition warning GOP lawmakers in the Michigan House of Representatives not to accept expansion of Medicaid or the creation of a health care exchange permitted under the Affordable Care Act—or face a suspension of “all monetary and logistical support.” The petition sought to bind the Republicans to the themes of the party’s 2012 platform that declared the law was an “attack on our Constitution” and an “attempt to impose upon Americans a euro-style bureaucracy.”"
