We can do better than this.

Imagine you’re a Jewish resident of Berlin, present day. It’s taken decades, in this hypothetical alternate Germany, for you to gain the right to vote and even use the same water fountains as regular Germans and eat at the same restaurants. Your people have had to fight tooth and nail for each of these rights and many others. Standing in your way? German conservatives who … Continue reading We can do better than this.

PanDUMBic

What a clusterfuck this whole pandemic response has turned into. From the getgo, we’ve been fed a lot of contradictory info and advice, and that’s because the people in charge don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about, either. No one knows anything, really. We weren’t prepared for this. We crashed the country and took away people’s ability to earn a living without giving them … Continue reading PanDUMBic

America has been almost completely … Continue reading More useless COVID-19 thoughts

This is just me documenting my thoughts and feelings during a time of great historical significance. I feel that a cultural paradigm shift on par with 9/11 is upon us. I don’t know what that’s … Continue reading Coming to terms with all of this…

Why Trump is going to win again

People who don’t like him are firmly convinced that he’ll never win…again. Sound familiar? People thought his initial campaign was a joke. Underestimating him was key to his victory. He may be a narcissist, and a sociopath, but he’s not stupid, and that’s where y’all fucked up. You thought he was an idiot. Nobody expected the tortoise to beat the hare, either. Now, here we … Continue reading Why Trump is going to win again
