We Are In This Together

I speak up a lot about how minority groups deserve rights. White people say this is “divisive” and causes discord. And here’s the thing: It shouldn’t. No, really. If someone from a minority group comes to you and says “Hey, that is racist and it hurts my feelings and disparages my culture,” you should be […]

No Shame, and No Apologies

I have been called horrible names. I have been attacked. I have been told that I am stupid, ignorant, and horrible. Why? Well, because I am voting for Jill Stein. Often on the Internet, people yell at me and tell me I have “too much white privilege” because I am willing to even consider voting […]

Resources You Should Have

Are you mad about the direction that your country is going?   Why don’t you let the government know! Elected Representatives have an obligation to listen to you. It is literally their job to hear what you have to say. However, I understand that not everyone had a Civics Class, and that some people might […]

Civics Class

Once upon a time, there was a class taught in all schools called “Civics Class.” It taught people how to get involved in their government, and how to participate in Democracy. In my civics class, we did a lot of cool things: We sat in on city council meetings so we could see how local […]

Dakota Access Pipeline

A lot of people have taken up the cause of Native Americans and started fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline (or DAPL.) I want to give you some resources to fight with. Please review the information below and consider getting involved: First, the agency that approved the pipeline is called the Army Corps of Engineers. […]

The Issues

The current American political campaign doesn’t involve any issues at all. It’s all about the current Mrs. Trump being called an escort, Trump being depicted in naked statues, and Hillary Clinton being called a liar who murdered kids in Benghazi. All those things may have an element of truth to them (they’re probably all true), […]

Stay Connected

It occurs to me that some people come across my blog, but don’t realize that I am all over the internet in other places. So first, please “like” my page on Facebook. There are some lively discussions there, and it’s a fun page. I would say that you should also add me as a friend, […]

No More War

We are a nation held captive by the one percent. Those who profit off the sale of fighter jets and bombs lobby the government to ignore the will of the people, and entrench us in endless and costly war. President Obama has bombed Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, and Syria for literally no reason other […]

US Police vs. South Korean Police

  I have been struggling with the images of police brutality from the USA. It’s really hard to see this when I am living in South Korea right now, where police brutality isn’t a thing. In South Korea the cops are often the target of harassment from citizens who have had a bad day and […]
