Independence Day

What exactly does that mean in this year, 2017? We have spent 240 years, give or take, celebrating our freedoms and independence. We have praised the United States of America for bringing democracy and liberty to more than just our people but to the masses as well. We have sang the words of Francis Scott...

After much thought, I’ve decided to do it with the same condescension that Senator McDaniel employed since I feel it must be the tone and attitude he understands best. Well done, Senator McDaniel. You must be so proud of...

Our New Normal

Everyday when we wake up in Trump’s America, there’s something new and horrifying to behold. It’s overwhelming. I’m sure it’s meant to be. Scientists are on lock-down. The EPA isn’t allowed to speak.

We say goodbye to a beloved President and First Family, the first African-American First Family and are forced to shake hands with the person who questioned our leader’s birth certificate for 8 years....

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. I don’t give a fuck…if people who spent the last 8 YEARS talking about Obama’s birth certificate are saying I’m acting like a child...

Our Chance

The message of this blog is specifically written to any person who was at one time a kid like me.  A kid who sat in social studies, learning about World War II and was shocked, dumbfounded, and horrified at the things she discovered that day. A kid who never thought that history could ever slap...
