This week, a Federal Judge in Philadelphia approved the city's (and the nation's) first "safe" heroin injection site for operation. The nonprofit organization, Safehouse, whose goal it is to establish legal opium dens all across the city, put up a long battle against various communities and attorneys over this proposal. However, one can't help but… Continue reading The Sordid State of Safe Injection Sites
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. How did we get here? Cognitive dissonance within certain… Continue reading Big ideas and bad actors: The death of modernity
The Historic Collapse of the Wissahickon
The strange death of the Wissahickon Valley has seemingly come out of nowhere. But with denial, hang-wringing, and a refusal to accept any accountability for their own domestic and social policies, the people of Philadelphia are ensuring it will only get worse.

Doesn’t “Ban the Box” Sound Like Slut Shaming?
When you mention "Ban the Box" to anyone, you almost immediately have to launch into a defensive stance. Most logical people would certainly interpret the tragically-named civil rights initiative as some kind of counter-feminist movement at best, or an Islamic Male-Pride March at worst. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on actual data, "Ban the Box" is… Continue reading Doesn’t “Ban the Box” Sound Like Slut Shaming?

Ron Paul: Nazi Creationist?
When I first learned of the existence of Ron Paul, I was legitimately excited--and rightly so! Along comes a political figure into the mainstream who reflects a decent Libertarian ideology of Constitutionalism and Freedom...but like graduating from college, my unparalleled optimism was soon crushed into a fine paste. The first element that killed my boner… Continue reading Ron Paul: Nazi Creationist?
In a recent article, I mentioned the ridiculous and intellectually offensive item in the news regarding a certain political cartoon. I know you're all sick of seeing it, but here it is: I don't know why, but I am extremely frightened by the outrage that this cartoon has caused. Actually, that's a lie. I know… Continue reading Chimpanzee That!
A Warm Recession
Judging by the epidemic of lay-offs, stock market plunges, and clusterfuck pissing competitions throughout the Legislative Branch, our country seems to be (for lack of a better phrase) bucked-fackwards.
