That’s cool. I hope he wins.




We need more politicians who stand for something rather than against someone.


Million-to-one chance

In the fragile reality of Discworld, and with the gods who like to play games, a million-to-one chance succeeds nine times out of ten.

Traditionally, one has to say “it’s a million-to-one chance, but it might just work!” to invoke this rule. It also has to be exactly a million to one - none of this fiddly “995,351 to 1” business, or whatever other number you might end up with. So while the list of things that people have accomplished with million to one chances is quite impressive, the list of things they have failed to accomplish with odds a few percentage points off in either direction is probably a lot longer and involves a lot more fatalities.

The deity of the Million-to-one chance (and all the other ones as well) is The Lady. Just… don’t invoke her directly.


He teaches statistics! How rare is numeracy in the halls of power. I am going to make a contribution.


Campaign on Donald’s empty populist promises minus the racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamaphobia, and deplorable bashing. instead of socialism talk about public investment, infrastructure, public spending.
When the economy slumps America dumps Trump. Donald lucked into the presidency on Obama’s successes and promises to undo his achievements. right back at ya, Donald.ragingtrump


I hope he succeeds, though I kind of expect some billionaire-backed sleazeball will hijack his policies and turn them in to empty promises.

Surely Kelly Fryer is the progressive in this primary?
