My name is James J. Jackson and I started this blog in 2014 under the name “Poems and Other Shit” so that I would have a place to publish my short stories and poetry, but over time I started writing more and more about politics as well as poetry. I changed the blog’s name in 2017.
I am a life long activist but I began to dive head first into writing more about politics in 2015 when my favorite senator, Bernie Sanders, began his first run for president. Bernie Sanders was the only elected official who took the Occupy movement seriously, so I decided to take Bernie seriously.
But beyond politics, poetry is my true passion! So you can expect to see plenty of that!
