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...

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...

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. Or the Mexicans. Or even ISIS. Be afraid of me, Donald. Let me introduce myself. I’m a 41 year old college-educated white woman. I was...

I am Tom Petty. I am a Heartbreaker.

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,...

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...
