“Death Roe”

           
&

Progressives have, for decades, taken for granted Roe v. Wade as the law of the land. Now that land is being dangerously encroached upon by the GOP and religious right-wingers. Stacked with Conservative judges in recent years (thanks, Trump!), the Supreme Court is closer than ever before to putting in jeopardy access to safe, private abortion clinics. A leaked draft opinion by Justice Samuel...

       

Take a trip in Seattle

           
T

Psycho·nauts, rejoice! Seattle just joined as the largest amongst an already-growing list of cities spearheading the legalization of psychedelics. The landmark measure extends what is already Seattle city policy not to arrest or prosecute people for personal drug possession to further protect the cultivation and sharing of psychedelic plants and fungi for “religious, spiritual, healing, or...

       

Another injustice ‘Ritten’ into America’s history books

           
A

Yet another crime goes unpunished in America. Another young, white male gets to go home to his family after wreaking easily-avoidable havoc in a town he doesn’t live in, with a weapon he’s not of legal age to own and carry, and whose reckless behavior should bring shame upon all of us. Look at this the faint smirk painted across this boy’s plump, little piglet face. That’s...

       

Facebook Gets Meta

Goodbye Facebook; Hello World, Meet Meta. It’s Not as Easy as “Abracadabra” ‘Marky Mark and the Facebook Bunch’ have long fascinated me by their abilities to say and do absolutely nothing in the face of immense public outrage. Through Jedi Mind tricks and complicated hand gestures which would make even Pai Mei proud, they never face any real consequences or...

       

Af·GONE·istan

           
A

Two decades and countless lives lost to a war which went no where. The United States evacuation of Afghanistan ended with a whimper instead of a roar. Like Iraq, Viet Nam, and arguably Korea, we continue to thrust ourselves across different parts of the world stage only to demonstrate how misguided, ineffective and impotent our original vision really was.

       

“The Art of (Breaking) The Deal”

           

Instead of putting deals together, Trump finds it much easier to break them apart One thing has certainly become clear since Donald J. Trump assumed the office of the presidency: the man’s word means nothing. He’s already broken many of his own, personal campaign promises and in-office commitments, but it’s other peoples deals he enjoys blowing up the most. I mean, let’s be honest: if all you...

       

State Run Propaganda

           
S

Trump suggests U.S. launch it’s own TV network Gee, I wonder whether the White House would have a compelling amount of control over the new network he suggests creating. Perhaps he finally sees he may not win reelection in 2020 between his low popularity, the loss of the House and over 400 State legislature seats, and the unfavorable trajectory of the Mueller investigation. Perhaps he’s getting...

       

The Doctor Is In.

Trump has official government photos doctored “Trump inauguration crowd photos were edited after he intervened”The Guardian Ugh. Need I say more? This kind of thing probably shouldn’t be too surprising anymore from a White House but peddles lies, distortions and propaganda on a regular basis. I know his crowd size isn’t the most important thing in the world (besides, isn’t it the...

       

“Truth isn’t truth”

           
&

“1984″ is alive and well in 2018 In an unprecedented new era of falsehoods, hypocracy, and downright propaganda, it really requires something shocking to stand out amongst the noise and knock one back a step. Yesterday was one of those moments. Wow. Let’s back up a second, though, and look at a few of the other data points along the way that have led us to where we’re at today...

       

Welcome to the Upside Down

           
W

Stranger, Stranger, and Stranger Things What a week. Trump just declared he finally believes his own intelligence community directors that Russia is, indeed, actively trying to hack and/or manipulate our upcoming election. Just one thing – he thinks they’re rooting for the Democrats this time. Yup. You heard right. President Trump contradicting his earlier statement he does not believe Russia is...
