Elizabeth Warren’s Mistake In 2016

Elizabeth Warren not only hurt Bernie’s campaign in 2016, she damaged her own reputation when she endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Cruel Reality, a poem for our times

Cruel Reality A classic song screams out through my radio, “We won’t get fooled again!” Unless we don’t pay attention in history class, Or worse, when we don’t bother to ask any questions. Yet soft, Do not let your words enable “deconstruction.” Fight on weirdos, fight on freaks, Fight on. Stanza 2, the part whereContinue reading “Cruel Reality, a poem for our times”

Kim Kardashian and the Lowest Common Denominator

Trump is the byproduct of all our willful apathy and blissful ignorance under the neoliberal life we have been leading since the time of Reagan. Kim Kardashian coming to the White House to discuss prison reform is a massive embarrassment, this is very true. However, I honestly hope no one was surprised by this. OfContinue reading “Kim Kardashian and the Lowest Common Denominator”

Donnie’s Daddy, A short story by James J. Jackson, Jr.

Donnie dropped the comb into the gold plated bathroom sink again for what felt like the billionth time. “FUCK!” Donnie screamed in frustration. Donnie hated how the stubby fingers on his tiny hands could never get a firm grip on anything they tried to hold. He fished the comb out of the sink bowl andContinue reading “Donnie’s Daddy, A short story by James J. Jackson, Jr.”

Release the tapes NBC, you fucking wimpy cowards!!! #boycottNBC

First they gave him a show that popularized him. Then Lauren Michaels & Jimmy Fallon legitimized his racism and sexism. Now they refuse to expose who he really is. It’s time for penance NBC. Sign the petition to get the tapes released and demand the network, including Michaels & Fallon apologize, but until then BOYCOTTContinue reading “Release the tapes NBC, you fucking wimpy cowards!!! #boycottNBC”

Election 2016: as explained by elevator etiquette 

Clinton is the kind of person that wont hold the elevator door open because its awkward to ride in the elevator with a stranger. Its like “yeah thats shitty but considering that elevators suck can I really judge her?” Where as Trump is the prick who will actually press the door close button. I thinkContinue reading “Election 2016: as explained by elevator etiquette “

Elizabeth Warren, proof the DNC is pathetic (Not a GOP endorsement)

Those who know me and follow this blog know that I am proudly a rabid Sander’s supporter.  Yes I am a Bernie Bro and I will embrace that attempt at a deragatory slur with pride.  I will continue to support Sander until the word’s “I concede” come out of his mouth. That being said, IContinue reading “Elizabeth Warren, proof the DNC is pathetic (Not a GOP endorsement)”

Dear Secretary Clinton,

Dear  Secretary, Congratulations on your victory. Congratulations on claiming a win when the votes of 3 million were legally barred. Congratulations on Wyoming where you won, even though you didn’t. Congratulations on Arizona where the elderly, the crippled, and others waited in blistering heat, never to have a vote cast. Congratulations on your victories, hollowContinue reading “Dear Secretary Clinton,”

Why Clinton will always have a Millenial problem, (pssst spoiler alert, its not just Wall Street)

Sorry Clinton people but she will never win over millennials the way Bernie can because we remember her in 2004 too well. I really want people, especially Hilary supporters, to understand something. DOMA & the Iraq War were my generation’s Vietnam, most of us were coming of age when they were dominant issues, ie developingContinue reading “Why Clinton will always have a Millenial problem, (pssst spoiler alert, its not just Wall Street)”

The Banks Aren’t the Only Bullys on the Playground

While I am very pleased that the issue of income inequality has finally taken a stronghold in the American political dialogue, I have noticed that the rhetoric has fallen short, even from my beloved Bernie. Sanders has brought to the media something that the rest of us have already known for years, the growing wealthContinue reading “The Banks Aren’t the Only Bullys on the Playground”
