Trump Hates Veterans

I don’t write as often as I should. Not as if my writing might change the world, but just purely from a therapeutic exercise. I have written 4 or 5 articles recently that I haven’t published. I can’t even entirely pinpoint the reason why. The last few days though have hit personally. The Veteran community is being dragged through the media for no reason other than political propaganda and gamesmanship. So disgusting is it that my simply pointing out the inherent hypocrisy in all of this to people online has resulted in my comments being deleted. As if, nope, not going to even have that...

Divided We Stand. Together We Fall.

Just when I believe this year, this country, this society, our species can’t possibly get any crazier……. We are pulling ourselves apart at the seams. And perhaps that’s OK in the end. From both primary “sides” I hear the calls for unity. Calls for the “Good Old Days” when politicians set aside their differences and worked diligently for the common good. Come on. Do you honestly believe that to be true? National Unity is a myth. Pure and simple. No different than the idea of Authority itself. It is a myth. An artificial construct that is not objectively real in any sense. Even during the...

April 26, 1992. Again.

April 26, 1992. There was a riot on the street, tell me, where were you? I get the feeling the majority of you rioting right now were either too young or not even born yet when that song made its rounds. Didn’t quite have the ability for those events to make their mark on your worldview. Something tells me this event ends the same as that event. I’m curious to see the ways in which this year gets neatly packaged and scripted into an overlooked little chapter to be taught to schoolchildren in 2050. I wonder, what will be the foundation of the narrative? What lessons will the government run...

Rich People Suck

Barack Obama: “If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Bernie Sanders: “I don’t think that billionaires should exist.” AOC: “No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars. People become billionaires only by exploiting workers and preying on vulnerable and less privileged people.” This mindset has become pandemic. It has entered the mind space of virtually anyone left of center and hasn’t let go. So appealing is this argument, so supportive is it of their subjective interpretation of reality that it festers and metastasizes. It...

The State in a State of Tantrum

People today, worldwide, are a wealthier lot than any previous collection of humans that have ever existed upon the planet. People today are living longer than any previous generation to come before us. A LOT longer. People today are insanely more literate and connected than any previous set of humans on planet Earth. People today can be statistically demonstrated to be far more welcoming of humans of alternate ethnicities and far more open to cultures other than their own. Additionally, violent crime rates have been plummeting for decades with no end in sight. People today survive...

The Baby Hitler Paradox

The Baby Hitler Paradox

Apparently one of the latest things the cool kids are talking about is debating whether or not they would kill baby Hitler. Supposedly this is a bit of a "Pro Life" argument. Parenthesis used since both sides of this debate are so hideously titled. This article is not about abortion by the way. Then you have responses like that from Stonekettle. I don't know Jim Wright. This Facebook post was the first I've ever heard of the guy. Don't know his political leanings nor do I care. I used his post as an example. Everything written from here forward is not a condemnation of Jim personally. As far...

The Price We Pay

The Price We Pay

Recently I jumped in to a snake pit. Don’t we all every once in a while? Sometimes I suppose those snakes are far too tempting and you’re just morbidly curious how you’ll fare and if you’ll survive. Better yet, perhaps you might even befriend a snake, wouldn’t that be the greatest feat of all? After all, in the world of social media, they aren’t really snakes. They aren’t stupid. They aren’t any of the never-ending flurry of insults that we see coming both ways. Nor is anyone able to be understood with a clever meme in response to a serious and nuanced question. The pit I refer to was Salon....

Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty

Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty

Americans today have “freedom” to be fleeced, groped, injected, harassed, surveilled, vilified, disarmed, beaten, detained, and maybe shot by federal agents. From hapless homeowners hit by SWAT raids to pandemic lockdowns pointlessly paralyzing lives, government...
