Building His Army

This notice went out to Trump supporters along with an accountability survey of the mainstream media. THIS should worry us all. “…I don’t trust the media…” “…you — the American people — are our last line of defense against the media’s hit jobs.” “You…greatest asset in helping our movement deliver truth to the American people.”...

Thankful

There’s been a lot of negativity in our country during this election cycle and now during the start of this presidency. And let’s face it, the negativity has just been more publicized, it’s not new. It’s been with us forever. It’s plagued us. We’ve plagued ourselves. But it’s time to put that behind us. Not...

One Woman’s Message to Donald Trump

Don’t be afraid of Alec Baldwin. Or Kate McKinnon. Or Arnold Schwarzenegger. Don’t be afraid of Hillary Clinton. Or Bernie Sanders. Or Elizabeth Warren. Don’t be afraid of Malcolm Turnbull.

Gray Gardens

Everyday I wake up in Donald Trump’s America and prepare myself for the news. It takes all of my courage and backbone to move forward through my anxiety and depression and face the day. Being on the West Coast means that by the time I get up, our President has already done two, maybe three,...

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...

Grabbed by the Pussy, Again

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...

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...

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...
