The Election That Fear Built

Okay. It isn’t funny anymore. I’ve been feeling kinetic. Manic. My anxiety is tangible; it drips down my fingers like the juice from a recently peeled orange. I stick to the table with it. I have energy but I can’t move. It’s either the election making me feel this way or this sick case of PMS I got. I could just be… Read More »

Planned Parenthood: Battle of the Babies

Planned Parenthood: Battle of the Babies

I also wanted to call this piece, “Why Arguing About Abortion Rights Allows Politicians to Fuck You (And Make You Keep the Baby),” but I thought that ran a little long. As evidenced by my last post, I’m very tired of abortion. I’m not tired of having them – god no – I’m just tired of hearing people argue against them. I think… Read More »

Debates Round 2: What They Should Really Be Talking About

Tonight marks the second Republican debate – this time hosted by CNN – this time still featuring idiots. It makes no difference what station these people appear on, though perhaps there will be less riotous applause from the audience when the contestants (because this is America’s greatest pageant) spew hateful rhetoric. Although, it’s still the republican debate, so I assume the… Read More »

Kim Davis: The Religious Right’s New Jesus

But listen guys. Before you judge her too harshly for workplace incompetence or, like,… Read More »

Fox News Hosts Republican Debate: LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

In case you haven’t been keeping up, there are now seventeen contenders for the Republican presidential nomination. Seventeen, you say? I’m also confused by this number. I found a list of thirty-seven candidates, actually, so seventeen seems a bit modest. But seventeen is the number that most people consider to be serious, so let’s go with that. Though this number could be… Read More »

Should Voting be Compulsory?

It’s Monday and the one thing I’m looking forward to today is my impending appointment with a new psychiatrist. So. This week is gonna be great. Just so great. The good thing about psychiatrist appointments is that I will be totally sane and fit to perform my duties as a citizen of the United States. As a side note, I… Read More »

Obama to Congress: I’m Not The Only One

Obama to Congress: I’m Not The Only One

Obama sure seemed tough at the State of the Union, bragging about the elections he’s won, but now the speech is over and it’s back to business as usual – Congress is back to ignoring him and he’s back to… wandering Central Park in the snow. Here he is singing to Congress, wishing for friends, throwing some balls, and just… Read More »
