Ignorance Really Is Bliss?

When I heard people in Denmark last year singing the praises of the drought… Want more days like that? Start driving SUVs with diesel. Even a half mile. Who cares about driving around many blocks for parking spaces. Just go everywhere by car. Encourage your friends. It’ll totally catch on. You’ll have plenty more hot […]

The Beginning

So, we’re in the first step of the long haul. Don’t let it fool you. It seems easier now. It’s not. Here is when we begin the work. We exploded in reactive retaliation. Things will calm down for a bit. It’s not a retreat. It’s regroup. Recalibrate. Breathe. We have ideas of what could come […]

WeThePeople Can Not Petition Our Government

The official platform to petition the United State government appears to have a glitch. The We The People website is a platform in which citizens can sign petitions that directly petition the US government. These petitions differ from others from such sites as change.org or MoveOn in that petitions here come with the guarantee of being acknowledged by the White […]

In The Time Before…

Go to sleep, all you people out there. Soft and sound in your beds tonight. We shall be at war soon. You thought you were tired. I thought I knew pain. The madness is coming. Our Dear Leader has spoken. His revelers shriek with such delight, not knowing what awaits us tomorrow or the next day. They […]

How could you not see this coming?

The US protested and rioted for over a week after the election. If you do not […]

Week One – The Request

As we leave the first weekend since the election, it’s going to be easier for most people to slip back into their bubbles of isolation and begin to go about as if not much has changed. As much as technology has given us, it has also taken away our accountability with each other. Now more […]

Pre election 2016 note

This election is absolutely disgusting. It demonstrates just how awful our country has become. Each “side” (right, left, centrist, independent, feminist, conservative, tea party, libertarian, liberal, whatever) has played a role in getting us here. There is no use in assigning blame as we are collectively at fault. A lot of things will be the […]

On Protest (Part 1)

We are screaming to be heard. As one man protests loudly by saying nothing, he is condemned as being unpatriotic for demanding that his fellow citizens uphold the Constitution. Our protests turn into riots and standoffs when we are ignored. Why do we protest? Why do protests turn to riots? The biggest smack in the face is the protests by those […]

Traveler 5 (The Witness)

Your Voice Matters Ringing in eager ears Incredulity wracks my brain Please let this be the moment The revolution will be televised Tweeted, shared, snapped, and chatted We stumble through teargas and bullets Make excuses, point fingers, absolve ourselves “It wasn’t me” They look like me “Not all of us” I don’t do that But […]
