It’s Class Genocide, Not Class Warfare

It’s Class Genocide, Not Class Warfare

Well, the Senate passed the tax overhaul bill. So what, right? This is good for ‘merica, right? No. It’s absolutely not. In short, we’ve been flimflammed. Now if we define Class Conflict as “the tension or antagonism which exists in society due to competing socioeconomic interests and desires between people of different classes” and define Continue reading It’s Class Genocide, Not Class Warfare

Men Are _____.

Men Are _____.

So, basically all men are awful. (sigh) It seems like every day there is some new revelation about some jackass who has defiled, or attempted to defile, another person. Just NOW, an alert from the UK Daily Mail came through that four more women are accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault. I am honestly ashamed Continue reading Men Are _____.

The TV Problem

The TV Problem

The television industry is predicated on deceit; whether it be scripted, unscripted (aka reality) or news, it’s always been that way. But before we jump into the fray, let’s address the elephant in the room. There is no such thing as reality television: there are scripted shows and non-scripted shows.

I can’t believe I am the only one who recognizes the irony in the first gold medal being awarded to an American comes in a firearm competition.

There are Pepsi people. We have Yankee fans. We have Red Sox fans. Almond Joy has nuts. Mounds don’t. We have Marriott Continue reading …Divided We Fall

I Will Not

I Will Not

I will not ignore the color of your skin. I can’t. If you are African-American, Latin American, Asian American, Indigenous, Irish American, Italian American, Spanish-American, black, brown, yellow, white, green or blue, I will not ignore your color.

Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo

Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo

Or put another way, Donald Trump is to politics what Kanye West is to music (shitty). They’re both only good because they keep telling us they’re good. I assure you, NEITHER are good, let alone great. To think that anything Trump says is either substantial or has political merit is to be completely ignorant to Continue reading Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo
