TPP, Copyright, & Fair Use

The TPP includes expansion of already draconian US copyright law. It also fails to provide explicit protections for fair use. 


Here is an excellent video covering copyright that explains fair use in a hilarious way. Without explicit fair use protections, people could potentially be prosecuted and face stiff penalties in fines and prison time for daring to express their creativity.

Misty's Interview with Jennifer Williams of Politisite

"Misty Plowright is the Democratic Congressional candidate running for the 5th district against current Republican Representative Doug Lamborn in Colorado. A first-time candidate, a Bernie Sanders supporter and an Army veteran, Misty took some time off from the campaign trail to speak with Politisite’s Jennifer Williams and answer some questions:"

Misty's Interview with Matt Steiner with the Gazette

Misty was interviewed this week by Matt Steiner with the Gazette.

"Misty Plowright has passion.

The Democratic candidate hoping to oust incumbent U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn talks about a political revolution sweeping the country, as well as the 5th Congressional District, pausing from time to time to rein in her exuberance."

Misty Meme Quotes

Misty doesn't take money from special interest groups. Period. 
If elected to represent Colorado's 5th Congressional district, she will be accountable to her constituents - and we've got the receipts to prove it.

It's time to get big moneyed interests out of the legislative process, and restore the voice of the people!

Misty Meme Quotes

It's good that the repayment of these bonuses has been halted, but it's not good enough.

There should be an immediate review of the last 15 years of all signing bonuses paid out by the DoD. All such "repayments" should be immediately refunded and compensation made for additional debt (refinanced mortgages to cover, loans taken out to repay, etc.) as well as any damage to credit reports. Negative information resulting from such entries should be removed and damages paid.

Misty Plowright Colorado's First Transgender Candidate for Congress

To call, Misty Plowright, the first transgender woman to run for Congress in the State of Colorado, an underdog would be an understatement. The district in which Misty lives, is heavily conservative and gerrymandered to ensure the conservative politician there can't lose.

Misty's Statement on the Presidential Election

Hillary Clinton has had to bear a lot of criticism, some justified, some not. I myself have been quite vocal in my own criticism of her (as well as other politicians), even at times harsh. 
There is no question Donald Trump would be disastrous. I have repeatedly answered that I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with my vote for President, though I was leaning toward Stein. 
Recent events, along with my own examination of the geopolitical situation around Syria, Russia, and China have caused me to seriously reconsider. 
Looking back on the world wars, it’s clear where the “point of no return” was hit leading up to those wars. For WW-II, it was Hitler’s march on the Rhineland. After that, there was no stopping the coming conflict. 
One of the considerations that must be taken into account when choosing a President is how they would handle a war, especially a major one. While I am vehemently anti-war, I do recognize it still happens. 
I don’t know if we have passed that point of no return with Syria which will lead to another world war, and I truly hope that we have not. It is, however, a very real possibility even acknowledged by some of our military leaders. With this consideration, there is only one candidate I believe is capable of effectively handling such a conflict, and it isn’t Stein. 
That candidate, is Clinton. With all of her flaws, and there are a lot, even Trump (not to mention numerous other Republicans) admits that she’s a fighter. She also has the political chops to handle the delicate geopolitical situations that arise during major conflicts, and those that follow. 
For all of these reasons (and more), my opinion with regards to Clinton has changed.

This campaign represents a new approach

This campaign represents a new approach.

I am campaigning to represent Colorado’s 5th Congressional District. That means it is my job to hear from everyone that I can, listen to their concerns, learn where they’re coming from, and try to find solutions to the problems we face. In this election, I’ve been all over this district talking to Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, TEA Partiers, Berniecrats, Unaffiliateds, and everyone else with a thought, question, concern, or issue they wanted to convey.

That’s the job of an elected official. Our representatives are supposed to engage with ALL of us, regardless of our party affiliation, political stripe or ideology, etc. Elections should be about issues and people. Not party.

Rep Lamborn's Official Statement on Donald Trump

Rep Lamborn,


Trump brags about sexually assaulting women, and you're satisfied with an apology?! Bragging about sexual assault isn't locker room banter, it isn't funny, and it is wholly unacceptable in someone who is running to be PRESIDENT of this great nation.

And he still has your full support.

You should immediately pull your support from Trump or resign.

9-11 15th Anniversary

On this day 15 years ago, a horrendous tragedy unfolded in New York and at the Pentagon.

Our country was viciously attacked. I was sleeping and my best friend’s dad rushed over to our house and woke us up saying “We’ve been attacked!”. We turned on the news a short time before the 2nd plane hit. We watched, stunned, as the day unfolded. It didn’t seem real. Phone & internet networks were overloaded and unresponsive as people tried to contact loved ones or find additional information.

We lived close to an airport, and the silence over the next several days was deafening as flights were grounded. The only planes we heard in the air were fighter jets patrolling the skies or conducting drills.

We must remember and honor the civilians who were killed on that dark day. We must also remember the first responders, police, firefighters, and EMTs who charged into those doomed buildings trying to rescue as many people as they could. We must remember our men and women in uniform who have since laid down their lives in defense of this country.

Happy Birthday Misty K. Snow!


In the fight for social equality and economic stability, there are few allies that match our friend and compatriot Misty K. Snow. Since beginning her campaign, she has been a stalwart voice for the working class, calling for a rise in the minimum wage and a reform of Wall Street. She has fought for the creation of a national, single-payer healthcare system—calling for healthcare be treated as a right, not something for the privileged few. In the struggle for LGBT equality, Misty Snow has called for laws preventing employers from firing workers because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Like us, she believes that nobody should be disadvantaged by their class, race, or identity.

For each of these reasons and more, we want to wish Misty Snow a full-throated happy birthday! Her continued support of Americans who have been left behind by the stratification of our economy shows that the solution to a declining standard of living is not rooted in bigotry and xenophobia. The solution is rooted in a real respect for the principle of equality, which says that everybody—regardless of class—deserves a life of dignity and fair treatment under the law. 

So from one Misty for Congress campaign to another, we offer our thanks and support.

—Team Misty

Nevada Convention & The State of Our "Democracy"

The Nevada Democratic State Party Convention was held on Saturday. The media has done some light reporting on it, portraying it as a group of rowdy Sanders supporters getting out of hand causing the convention to be shut down. 

Unfortunately for them, information still flows relatively freely on the internet. With all of the shenanigans thus far in the primary season, people are waking up and starting to record everything that's going on. 

Thursday, May 12, 2016 12:00 AM

Corruption is legal in America. It’s time to change that.

I support this completely. Our politicians love to bemoan the influence of "special interests" and "lobbyists", but I don't see a big rush to get anything like this passed.

If elected, I will bring this up every chance I get, and you better believe I'll be making a lot of noise and naming names of anyone that works to defeat it.

Young Turks - Bernie Sanders Giving The Establishment A Headache

I *LOVE* Cenk Uygur & The Young Turks.
He puts this better than I ever could.

It's time for the PEOPLE to reclaim their power. Our politicians need to understand, on BOTH sides, that if they refuse to represent us, we WILL replace them with people who will.

Bernie Sanders, and even Donald Trump, both represent the same thing. The people are rising up and telling the entrenched political establishment in this country that we're sick of bought politicians and corrupt government.
Their messages, are vastly different.

Donald Trump is stoking the fires of white nationalism and conservative economic populism.

Bernie Sanders has a message of hope, inclusiveness, and progressive economic populism.

Bernie Sanders is something between an FDR Democrat & an Eisenhower Republican.

This movement is not, and never has been, about Bernie Sanders. This movement is about an idea. Together, we can restore honor, integrity, and compassion to our government.
