Hypocrisy — The Blue State Comedy Tour

This not something that should need an entire blog post to address but it seems that there is a rather large portion of the American people that need a lesson in what does and does not make a person a hypocrite. And in an effort to reach out to those particular people, I felt like...

Grabbed by the Pussy, Again

As a woman, I have been grabbed in the pussy by an astonishing number of men and as every woman out there knows, it happens way too early to most of us. The first time I was literally (and I am using the word literally, literally) grabbed in the pussy by a “man” was when...

Understanding

You keep telling me to understand. To be quiet. To let it go. You call me a crybaby, a whiner, a troublemaker, a child. You say I’m a hypocrite. You say I’m spewing the hate I rally against. You call my pain a temper tantrum. You tell me it’s my job to unite us as...

The Win is in The Fight

I am an artist, first and foremost. I have known since the beginning of my memories that I was born to write. That has always been my identity. That has always been how I’ve seen myself. I glory in that. I wear it like a badge of honor. I have a gift. A real gift....

IDGAF

Hey, Everybody! Welcome to my new blog…I Don’t Give a Fuck. It’s a blog where I tell you things…that I don’t give a fuck about. Come, let’s take a journey together.

Black and Blue

My blog post today is literally about one thing and one thing only. There’s nothing else besides this I want to address and I want it to be very clear that there is only one point I’m wanting to make. I’ve seen a number of good people post things since our latest wave of police...

Questions

Normally, I like to think that I have all the answers. Although I certainly haven’t fooled myself into thinking I’m an astronaut or rocket scientist, I do like to think that I know stuff. I do well at Jeopardy. My educated guesses are pretty right on. I tend to figure out who the killer is...

Dr. StrangeRug or How I Learned I Could Be Trump’s Speechwriter

I thought we could all use a laugh right about now, so here is my take on Donald Trump’s upcoming speech at the Republican National Convention.  This blog post is in honor of the most excellent decision that Sherwin Williams made to not remove the LeBron James/Cleveland Cavaliers Championship banner from their global headquarters for...

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

How can you see this and not be sick? How can you watch the video and not weep openly with grief? How can you hear the stories and continue to deny the reality? #AntonSterling #PhilandoCastile #FalconHeightsShooting How can you sit on your couch, watch your tv, play with your kids, eat your microwave dinner, stare...
