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...

Taking Patriotism Back!

I am done with you whiny little bitches. I am done with the idea that conservatives or Republicans have a fucking monopoly on patriotism. I’m fucking taking patriotism back! You know who isn’t a US patriot? Someone who flies the Confederate flag. The Civil War was over 150 years ago and you lost. Let me...

New America

Everyday I watch as my country turns into Nazi Germany. Say that I’m exaggerating. Say that I’m taking my dislike and distrust of Donald Trump to new heights. Say that I’m employing scary tactics. None of that surprises me. And none of it stops my thoughts, either. Why? Because the same thoughts and feelings were...

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. The Wall is beginning. The Affordable Care Act is being repealed without an alternative. Medicare and Medicaid are under attack. A group...

My Apology

This blog is just for me. It’s not about anybody else. These are my feelings about myself and I need to own them. I need to apologize. I need to apologize to all my human brothers and sisters for letting you down. I just turned 41. I wasn’t blind. I wasn’t unaware. I didn’t think...

Eulogy

The United States of America is officially dying. As 2016 comes to a close, our country struggles to take its lasts breaths. 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....

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...

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. 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...
