Thanks, Obamacare – Throwback Tuesday #tbt

I’m not waiting until Thursday for tbt, because I do what I want –especially when I’m pissy.  I really need some fucking Adderall but my health insurance quote is almost $300 a month and doesn’t cover ANYTHING until I spend $6,000, so I’m uninsured. I’ll go to the doctor in the next week or two […]

Why Aren’t We Talking about Kajieme Powell?

Last week I wrote about the shooting of Kajieme Powell. Immediately after I watched the video, I started searching to see if I could find anyone else saying what I was thinking — that his actions were intentional, deliberate, and premeditated. That his actions were those of a martyr. At the time, I found nothing. Now, I’m […]

If You Don’t Teach Your Kids About Safe Sex, I Can’t Wait For You to be a Grandfather Before Your Kids Can Drive

Are you waiting until marriage to have sex? Good for you! Unless we’re close enough for you to tell me about you having sex, please don’t tell me about how you aren’t getting laid (I’m an equal opportunist kill joy). But for the love of God, do not tell me that you won’t be teaching […]

Was Kajieme Powell Acting as a Martyr?

I’ve watched the video of Kajieme Powell being shot so many times I’m starting to feel uncomfortable with myself. Can someone please explain to me what was going on? Was he trying to mimic the Brown situation to prove a point by sacrificing himself? The petty theft and display of the meaningless products on the side of the […]

Please Stop Asking Me If I’m Ever Getting Married…

…because I’m not. Last week I mentioned that I’m not a fan of the way marriage is currently run. I believe that a marriage contract should be between you and the person you love, and if a third person is involved it should only be your God — not the government. I am, however, interested […]

The Week in Review – August 15

This was a pretty busy week for the news, but most of it has been depressing. Ferguson, MO went from being treated like a war zone to being under the control of Ron Johnson, who told the Post, “When I see a young lady cry because of fear of this uniform, that’s a problem…We’ve got […]

Unpopular Opinion: I Don’t Have Anything Valid to Say and I Feel Bad for People Who Read My Writing

Ever read something that just made you want to punch yourself in the face so you wouldn’t have to look at it anymore? Because I have. Today (and many, many times before). My friend pointed me in the direction of an xoJane article by one Jessica Slizewski that I couldn’t even comment on because the comments […]

If You Give a Cop an Assault Rifle, He’s Going to Ask for a Tank

…when you give him the tank, he’ll probably take your city hostage. Last night two reporters were arrested in Ferguson, MO; one from the Huffington Post and one from the Washington Post.  It’s a really, really big deal — not that the blatant crimes against the people of Ferguson aren’t already a big deal. Journalists aren’t better than […]

The Right to an Attorney? NOT in Immigration Court / Proceedings

Imagine being 11 years old, speaking little or no English, and walking into a court room for the first time in your life. Now imagine you’re representing yourself: unsure of what to say or when to say it; unsure of where to stand or sit, likely untrusting of most adults. Yet, the court room waits […]
