My Growing Disgust with the Presidential Race

I am beyond disgusted. The world I thought I knew is falling apart, and reality continues to grow increasingly subjective. In my previous post, I briefly addressed the wellspring of evidence that proves Donald Trump has no right even to be considered for the presidency of the United States of America, yet, despite all his […]

It’s Clinton or (literally) Bust

My plan, for the next several weeks, is to post at least once a week on some of the goings on in our political climate. I will not hold back. I will attack. I will drop truth bombs and harrowing opinions achieved through common sense all the way up through critical thought. I will drop mics and do anything I can to get people to wake the hell up to the dangerous reality we face in this country.

#TacosForTrump

To honor and celebrate Donald Trump’s impending loss in the US Presidential race, I intend on eating some form of Taco every Tuesday between now and November 8th. Tonight I had a fairly common U.S. Tex Mex ground beef Taco in a hard shell with, beans, cheese, and onions. I invite everyone to join me […]

What They Need’s a Damn Good Whacking

After reading the news of drastic increases in the price of Epipens and Insulin over the last couple of years (as well as the unreasonably and unnecessarily high prices on many other life saving drugs), I want to dedicate this Hymns of Social Justice post featuring a live performance of George Harrison’s song “Piggies” (Originally […]

McDonald’s Theory: Why Sanders is Worth Supporting

Many Democrats wish Bernie Sanders would go away. There is a lot of rhetoric about Sanders’ naivete from Republicans and Democrats alike. Even though many of those people agree that the problems he names are real and vital to solve, they are also certain that his solutions cannot work. So if he begins mounting losses […]

GOP crack-up stems from nationwide crisis of faith

The Super Tuesday primary results made one thing clear: the Republican Party is split three ways. The establishment supports Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz leads the evangelicals. And then there’s Donald Trump, darling of first-time voters and independents. The Trump train looks likely to steam to a nomination unless one of his competitors throws himself on the tracks. […]

Dark Side of the Trump

March First, 1973 Pink Floyd released one of the most successful albums of all time. In the 43 years since it was released “Dark Side of the Moon” has sold some 50 million copies.  Although it only held the number one spot on the Billboard top Album chart for one week, it stayed on the […]

Is Trump a Christian?

There has been some debate generated by the response Pope Francis gave to a journalist over Trump’s platform. Here’s the quote: A “person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel. Whether I would advise to vote or not to […]

Thoughts on Bundy Extremism and Responses To It

I have re-posted my 2014 post on the connection between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and extreme conservative elements within Mormonism. I also want to summarize a bit the other posts I have written about Cliven Bundy in the past. I am mostly responding to those who seem to think that I do not understand who […]

“Dear Mister Grinch, You’re a Mean one!”

Dear Mister Cruz, Mister Trump, Mister All Republican Governors (except Governor Herbert of Utah, he’s trying to do the right thing) who don’t want Syrian Refugees in their states, Mister One (so far) Democratic Governor who doesn’t want Syrian Refugees in his state, Mister All (but 2) Republican and 47 Democratic Congressional Representatives who voted […]
