It is difficult to organize my thoughts at this moment, but I feel compelled to try. And I’m sure many Americans are feeling similarly overwhelmed, exhausted, and most importantly, enraged at the current state of things in our country. However, let us not forget that the current state of things isn’t all that new, with […]Read more "America is Burning"
I was planning to address the collective exhaustion the Trump presidency has caused due to his onslaught of idiocy and scandals. However, that exhaustion has taken its toll on me as I struggle to keep up on bills and general personal maintenance. So I’m just going to write what’s on my mind currently: In the […]Read more "Remove Trump or Let America Die"
There’s a difficulty I find in trying to express the feeling this time period has produced in me. It’s a numbness, but a burning numbness, which undermines the entire definition of what numb is. I feel nothing and everything at once. Yet we are at a juncture in time where little makes sense anymore, so […]Read more "Kremlin’s Kraken Keeps Trumping America"

Not lies or empty talking points meant to placate us and appeal to the primitive aspects of our psyches. Instead you offered, in one sense, tough […]Read more "A Letter to Bernie Sanders"

UPDATE: The Sanders’ Campaign responded and are currently looking into legislation to introduce to Congress in regards to police reform. While I applaud Mr. Sanders’ response to the #BernieSoBlack backlash, inevitably it will be attacked as clear political pandering. The media and the political establishment in this country can’t fathom the idea of someone like […]Read more "Sandra Bland, #BernieSoBlack, Police Reform, and My Letter to the Sanders’ Campaign"
True freedom doesn’t exist in a civilized world. Yet we covet the concept of freedom like children covet ice cream. We are a species of delusion. Reality is far too complex for our puny human minds to comprehend, so we shape it to be tolerable. But man, is the idea of total freedom exhilarating. It is […]Read more "Freedom"
