When I Am Queen of Everything: We Need More Whimsy, Dammit!

Upon hearing that Brock Turner—a brutal rapist who was only sentenced to six months because a judge worried it would hurt the poor boy’s future—will be released early from prison because of good behavior, I became so enraged I wanted to rip off my own arm so I could have something with which to better [&hellip

Summer is supposed to be the bestest time of all but for Donald, or Mini-Mani as the bullies were calling him because of his teeny-tiny hands, but things have not been so awesome. First some soldier’s parents picked a fight with him for no reason, then people kept getting mad because he changed his mind [&hellip

What The Hellary ?!?! – Take Two

Whenever an egregious story about Hillary Clinton breaks, some of my more conservative friends immediately ask me if I have “finally come to my senses.” Because they generally are civil and intelligent people who argue with evidence and reasoning instead of just screaming at me or forwarding nonsense, I pay more attention to their zin

Everything You Wanted To Know about the DNC 2016 in Philly (But Couldn’t Bear to Watch)

Dear-sweet-mother-of-pearl, this campaign season just will not end! It feels like we’ve been hearing about 2016 since 2013—probably because we have—but finally we have the major party conventions behind us. Also the Libertarian National Convention which blew the RNC and DNC out of the water when it came to brevity and weirdness. But

Have you heard that America is going to be made great again? I read that on a bumper sticker so it must be true. The good ol’ days will apparently be brought back though the good ol’ days Donald Trump wants to bring back ...

Winning ‘Muricans, Losing America

Have you heard that America is going to be made great again? I read that on a bumper sticker so it must be true. The good ol’ days will apparently be brought back though the good ol’ days Donald Trump wants to bring back were the same that involved lynching, women in the kitchen, gay [&hellip

Do We Trust Either Of Them Anymore?

Which Came First: Hatred of Politicians or the Press?

by
During a group exercise at my recent grad school interview, we were asked to consider a post-apocalyptic scenario where there were 12 survivors but only enough arable land to support 8 people. We were to review brief descriptions of the survivors and decide which would make the cut. The one thing that everyone in the [&hellip

No, It Does Not Go Without Saying

The Bern Left Me Cold

It was clear months ago that there were no more grown-ups left in the room. Presidential candidates seemed caught between being in their “terrible two’s” and the awkward bully stage of junior high school. So it shouldn’t be surprising that now not only do Republican campaign events end in violence and threats; now the Democrats [&

Donald Trump v. Special Interests: A Wake Up Call for Democrats

This campaign isn’t being decided by you, it isn’t being decided by me, and it isn’t being decided by all the other American citizens who will (hopefully) cast a vote in November. Instead, it seems to be in the hands of the media, and more importantly, the people and groups who don’t care about the [&hellip
