Short: On Voting

Something important to note about elections in the United States is that votes are never fully counted on Election Day. It is an impossibility. This idea from the GOP that somehow votes are counted in full by midnight on the first Tuesday of November every fourth year with a clear winner is ignorant of history, […]

Notes Before the 2020 Election

[Pulled from the archives; much has changed since I began this draft; started sometime in August 2020 – finished 29 October 2020] Like many, I have expressed grave concerns for the coming election in November 2020. Like many, I am worried that it will not go without serious incident. My worries are not limited to […]

On Protest (2)

[Note: I started this draft several years ago. Similar to On Protest (1), which was published years after writing, the context has not changed. Some details have been filled in with current events or my own knowledge growing.]   The word is officially revealed that Dear Leader has never been a decent human being. The […]

Looking Across the Ocean

My country is dying. And we are struggling against the rise of fascism in the process. I knew this day would come. When I was preparing to leave the US, in my gut, I knew it would come. No matter where in the world I ended up, I knew that at some point I would […]

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.

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 […]

We The People: Petition Site Update

It seems the petition site is glitchy. A few others have noted this. The We The People site is the direct site that American citizens can use to directly petition the government as guaranteed by the First Amendment. We can use paper petitions, email petitions, and so forth. However, this particular platform is a .gov […]

“But I Turned Out Okay”

Fine is the watch word. I’m totally okay. It what we say when we’re just barely coping or getting by. What we mean is we’re somehow okay with where we are. Really, though, we could be so much better. I listen to people of the generations before mine and some who are older in my […]

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 […]
