Big ideas and bad actors: The death of modernity

It is a dark time. The few remaining American people of kind heart and mind on the political left have lost nearly all common sense and credibility (if they had any to begin with) and we are unable to come together for similar values and goals.

Your Russian Hacker Theory Sucks While it's ultimately refreshing to have individuals who have a seemingly limitless history of being categorically wrong about every major issue involving race, gender, sociology, and economics suddenly get super-into international politics instead, one does not simply become magically red-pilled when one's political nemesis becomes God Emperor. In this latest and transparently bogus attempt to (at… Continue reading Your Russian Hacker Theory Sucks

The Day America Elected a Frog

Let's get one thing straight.

If the Presidential Candidates Were Baseball Players

Hillary Clinton: Position – Designated Hitter Scouting Report: Clinton is an expert fastball hitter with years of experience under her belt.

Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?

Trump has been a media icon for decades. And while I have to give him props for graduating from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, and for having the wherewithal to effectively turn the company his father worked tirelessly to create into his own person piggy bank, I somehow doubt his honesty and credibility.… Continue reading Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?

What the fuck are we doing? Examining the Political Climate of 2010

Lately my brain has been a McDonald's PlayPlace of ambivalence and disgruntled pessimism over our country's current political climate. I can't bring myself to be apathetic because--in all honesty--there aren't many issues that I would consider myself to be "on-the-fence" or "*shrugging my shoulders*" about.
