Aftermath (Part 3): People will NOT SEE this coming…

So, just last week, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Trump himself admitted it was because of Comey’s investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 US Presidential election.

Asking for a friend…

I keep seeing variations on a theme on my FB wall and elsewhere regarding protesters being late to the party and that we should stop blaming the people who voted third party and heal ourselves through compassion. This is the response I wrote to the direct question on my wall, to answer a question from a Read More …

Aftermath (Part 2): Bread and Circuses…

It’s been a while. Sorry about that. With all the distractions and changes between November 9 and January 29, it’s nearly impossible to take in everything that’s happening. There’s another name for these things: Bread and Circuses. We are so used to paying attention to entertainment, to the spectacle, we’ve lost the ability to concentrate Read More …

Fascism Denial…

Decades from now, will we remember all the warnings? Will we even be able to find the evidence that was there? In the last few days, since the start of the 115th Congress, there have been reports all over the internet of rules changed to favor the GOP, to give them the power to strip Read More …

Storm’s here (Part Two)…

And from here on out, I’m live on Facebook, and will post updates below. I’m devoting all my time right now to updating my spreadsheet. When I’ve finished, I’ll post my results to 270towin.com, but there’s no point in putting the link up now. ETA: 1:43am EST – http://www.270towin.com/maps/36n0N (My best guess as of this moment.) Folks, Read More …

We’ve seen this before…

A little context is necessary here. Back in the very early 1990s, I had a conversation with my grandmother who lived in Miami Beach, about the influx of Haitian refugees (Boat People). She blamed the entire situation for forcing her out of her home in Brooklyn (because it’s so much easier to blame people for trying Read More …

Connecting the Dots, Part 5…

I’ve been chewing on what to write, post convention(s), for a while now. This is WAY long, and there are lots of links, many of which have OTHER links, so it could take a long time to get through. You could just skip to the end, but you’ll miss all the supporting material if you Read More …

My take on Machiavelli’s The Prince, and a little history…

Okay, so way back in the end of 2012, I found out I qualified for a college scholarship. I got my first degree in 1985, which managed to be enough until we got to human resources databases that reject people if they don’t have the “right” degree. After being stuck in a dead-end part-time job Read More …

I’m just gonna leave this here…

I am making a last-ditch attempt at concentrating on classwork before my final projects are due and I wrap up my second BA in Graphic Communication (this Sunday, and thanks for asking). After I finish, I’ll have all the time in the world to blog again, but in the meantime I’m putting these two links Read More …
