Screw You, DC Cabs — And Long Live Uber!

Looks like I dodged a bullet by leaving DC last week – the cab drivers in the city apparently had a terribly obnoxious protest against Uber and Lyft that resulted in completely stopped traffic. Good. Being obnoxious will definitely make people more sympathetic toward you, cabbies. The people who are good cab drivers will likely switch to Lyft or Uber, and the bad ones will be phased out. I’ve taken plenty of Uber rides, and I can assure you I find it much safer. In DC cabs, I have been touched (yup), forever lost my phone, been hit on, texted … Continue reading Screw You, DC Cabs — And Long Live Uber!

Maybe the TSA isn’t the worst part of flying

Here is a lesson in traveling etiquette: the middle seat gets both armrests. At the very, very least you don’t LEAN OVER SOMEONE ELSE TO WATCH YOUR IPAD. I mean, the aisle is on the other side of you! Lean over toward that!! You, sir, are an asshole. At least the TSA only looks and (typically) doesn’t touch!!!

Why I Don’t Give a Damn About Bob Bergdahl’s Beard

The second I saw Bob and Jani Bergdahl in the Rose Garden, I knew nothing good was going to come from Bob’s appearance. However, I absolutely did not expect the reaction the nation has had — especially since when CNN began commenting on the news right after the announcement, everything was so positive. So what changed?  Well, there’s the so-called “pro-Taliban” tweets, including this one: Oh, total terrorist sympathizer. Or, you know, just someone who doesn’t support the war we’re having, or the human rights violations by foreign agencies occurring in Afghanistan. Someone who doesn’t support Guantanamo Bay and all of its (not so) grey … Continue reading Why I Don’t Give a Damn About Bob Bergdahl’s Beard

NSA: Unquestionable, Irreparable, Irreversible Harm

It’s no secret I’m not a fan of the NSA and its mass surveillance of American citizens, so of course I’m on board for a protest. Tomorrow is the one year mark of Edward Snowden’s first leak of NSA spying to the American pubic. While the general opinion of Snowden has varied over the past year, a majority of Americans now believe he did the right thing…so don’t let it go to waste. Join Reset the Net and take advantage of the encryption tools that will help protect you from mass surveillance. While our politicians do nothing but mumble and stutter nonsense when confronted about their … Continue reading NSA: Unquestionable, Irreparable, Irreversible Harm
