Capitalism is apparently a continuous merry go round of bubbles and then burst where the economy is concerned, but the too big to fail are bailed out by the too poor and too insignificant to matter when it comes to returning the economy to its former self.

open carry store

Walking around a store with an unloaded air gun that’s for sale at that store when you’re black allows police to legally murder you. Walking around a store with real and loaded weapons when you’re white is exercising your 2nd Amendment rights.

Can we as citizens of this nation have an influence on policies that could help to alleviate some of the pain/strife that we see in this nation? Should we be trying to make this country/this world a better place or should we just be spectators?

Apparently, revolution and guns are only good things when in the hands of white people. Can you imagine what would be happening in Ferguson, MO right now if those protesting over the murder of Michael Brown openly carried rifles and hand guns in their protests?

The militarization of police forces has turned them from a philosophy of protecting and serving the community to responding to even minor situations en masse with armored vehicles, military gear and combat uniforms complete with helmets and gas masks and we see an America that only used to live in dark science fiction stories.

Voting Booth

We are “responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society.” (Patrick Henry) But as polling demonstrates the American Public has shirked its responsibility in failing to be the informed electorate that John Adams believed was the foundation of any democracy.

If one engages with a theocrat and takes the time to debunk enough of their claims, eventually, they will get into ambiguous territory like what was the “Real” intent of the founders.

children borders

Suddenly, unaccompanied children are pouring across the border from Mexico. They are not all from Mexico but from Honduras and other Central American countries. Where do we start to end the crossings?

SCOTUS - Hobby Lobby

This is as close to a declaration of a Zombie Apocalypse we have gotten from this Supreme Court to date. It is The Night of the Living Religious Corporation…they’re alive! And they have more rights than the actual people who work for them! Get the canned food and the shotgun, they’re coming to your neighborhood next!
