Evil is Not a Mental Illness

“This is also a mental illness problem,” President Trump said of the mass shootings. “These are people that are very, very seriously mentally ill.” What exactly do people think mental illness is?  Are you picturing some drooling psychopath that’s drawing up blueprints for his brain extrapolator? Do you have an imagine in your head of...

The Red-Hatted League

There has been a lot of blame going around the United States this past year over our dumpster fire of a political climate. Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders. “Illegal” Immigrants. Voters. Those who chose NOT to vote. The GOP. The DNC. Refugees. Anthem kneelers. Tiki carriers. Angry teenagers. Angry coal miners. Protesters. Counter-protesters. That’s...

Gun Control

I really felt that this topic deserved a second blog just given our state of affairs right now. I’d like to focus on one core “answer” to the problem of school shootings in The United States: that we arm our teachers. Now, there’s the obvious first question — where is the money for these guns...

A Well Regulated Militia

Let’s talk about the words “a well regulated militia.” Here’s the whole Second Amendment for absolute context: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Our country up until and including now has followed this principle:...

Just to be Clear

I recently got into a debate on social media with a commenter on my latest blog and I realized that there are a few things people need to get straight. Not all people but I have a feeling this is a shared opinion among Trump supporters and as ludicrous as it may seem to the...

Raise Your Voice

I feel small. I feel small and insignificant and my words seem insufficient for the events that are taking place in our country right now. White Supremacists, with the aid and support of the most undeserving and corrupt man to ever sit in the Oval Office, are poised to launch themselves into the mainstream of...

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...

Vitriol Artist

Shame on everyone who are looking at Democrats and pointing fingers, saying that the vitriol must stop. YOUR president, Donald J. Trump, is the person to blame for ALL of the current vitriol going on in this country presently.   He advocates and incites violence with his words and actions.  BEFORE even running for president,...

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...

The Bottle of Zima with Two Names

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away and not so different from ours, lived a lonely bottle of Zima. This bottle of Zima had no name, for bottles of Zima were not different enough to need names. Zima thought he had a good life, for a Zima, and couldn’t quite understand...
