We Are Violence

Not even a week has passed, and I needed to google “Florida Shooting.” I couldn’t seem to remember what day it happened…was it a Monday, or a Friday? It feels like it’s been at least a week, but after all the gun debate articles littered page after page of my search, I gave up. The great American…

Marichuy

“We do not bring promises, we do not bring anything to give away, more than the heart, more than sweat, more than the effort of each day. It has been a difficult road because people no longer believe in anything and are tired of hearing promises. That is why we are not promising things. We are launching a call to the organization of society, to a union that goes beyond elections. This is the moment of youth, of childhood, of women. It is time for us to be aware that we can move forward together.”

~ Maria “Marichuy” de Jesus Patricio Martinez

Our Self-Imposed Terror

“Cantwell and others like him go down this path NOT because of intellectual integrity; spit fire and scream provocations NOT out of righteous indignation; but because they have terrorized themselves into a corner from which the only thing they have left to do is lash outward.  They have traded first principles which lead to life and liberty of all humanity, for the rhetoric of convenient excuse to lift the hand of wrath to a copout and scapegoat of an enemy.”

The Only Thing More Important Than Liberty… and how it applies to Charlottesville

The crimes of the American government are not lost on me, and neither should they be on you.  These certainly are trying and tumultuous times.  The whole world is in upheaval, and there are many desperate situations which need attention.  Certainly, something’s gotta give and big changes need to occur – this much is true.

A Modest Healthcare Proposal

It would seem one of the most vexing concern for the citizens and government of the United States of America would be healthcare. While many people feel that some sort of government run program that gave necessary access to healthcare, with a moderate and sensible tax rate in place would be ideal, those currently in…

Society is Fucked. Fix Your Own Lives.

I awoke this morning feeling philosophical (and somewhat hung over) and came to a conclusion… Society is fucked. It’s not the Left’s fault. It’s not the Right’s fault. It’s everyone’s fault. When I view my Facebook news feed these days, it’s literally: Fuck Trump. Fuck snowflakes. Fuck Trump. Fuck snowflakes. Fuck Trump. Literally. One on top…

#MakeHerpesGreatAgain

When you are critical towards one candidate, the argument seems to be that you are somehow supporting the other. Newsflash: I can actually dislike multiple people at once – it’s like a special super power I have. Just because I don’t want herpes doesn’t mean I am looking for some gonorrhea…

Stop Telling Me To Vote!

This election year is by far the most insane spectacle I have ever witnessed in American politics. Radicalism is at an all time high – regardless of political stance – and the “candidates” could possibly be the absolute worst that this nation has to offer. The American people are bombarded with propaganda on a daily basis…

#FreeMilo

For the past few months I have stayed blissfully away from social media, with the exception of YouTube. I still need my regular dose of The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. Joe understands how to have a show platform that doesn’t involve fear-baiting, race-baiting, and all around angry hate-mongering. While I was blissfully ignorant of the…
