Why I am generous

Thankfully, I've never actually been homeless, but I have had times where I had to live with someone else, when I would much rather have had my own home. I learned to share, because it could be me.

I'm also a big tipper. Not because I'm wealthy, but because I know that even small compliments - small kindnesses - can go a long way.

The Right Way to Protest

Protest makes people uncomfortable. No one wants to be uncomfortable. Protest points out that something is wrong, somewhere.

Sometimes, the wrong is real, other times it's imagined.  This history of the United States is absolutely rift with racial bias.

In the begining, there was the genocide of the Native Americans.
Then we had the import of brown-skinned people as slaves.
White people even expressed racism against other white people.

Funny thing, you know, those "anti-darkie" immigration laws keeping white people out of the country.

The right way to protest is non-violence. Gandhi, for all his creepy faults, lead the country of India in non-violent protest against the British government, and the Indians regained control of their own country - peacefully and without gun-fetished war that would have resulted in tens or hundreds of thousands more deaths.

Trump is the Ultimate Troll

President Trump (barf in my mouth) flapping his gums on television. He is literally the ultimate interweb troll.  Lies, misdirection, self-congratulation, misrepresentation, distortion, constantly making everyone else out to be the villain, and ultimately _always playing to the audience_, simply using everyone else as the "straight man" for his talking points of the moment.  No wonder I loathe the man.

American Values: Guns over Education

"We should have more guns in schools."
"We should allow college students to carry guns on campus."
"We need to cut teacher salaries."
"We need to cut public school funding."

THESE are not bullshit headlines.  They're fucking American "values."
Americans - as a national class of idiots - have their priorities screwed up.

Summarize why Judge Kavanaugh should not be on SCOTUS

Just in case you've been living under a rock, a man named Brett Kavanaugh, who worked for President George W. Bush (2001-2009), has been nomiated by President Trump (barf in my mouth) (2017-?) to be a Supreme Court Justice.

Judge Kavanaugh - from the small percentage of his public records that have not been suppressed by various agents - is an anti-America corportist jerk.

If your best defense of Harry is:

“Yeah, well, Thom and Dick are axe murderers, TOO,”

Then you might want to rethink why you are even defending Harry.

11-Sept-2001 - We Remember

We Remember. 

There was a time, for a few days, where the entire fucking planet was united in horror, united in solidarity, and united in recognizing we are all human

We Remember this to honor those who died on 11-Sept-2001, and all those who have died since because of 11-Sept-2001.

DnD - gender inclusion since 1978

Borrowed a DnD 1e Players Handbook from a grognard. 
Gary Gygax was using "he or she" in fucking *1978* - WTF is this still a goddamn issue 40 years later??

Veterans before Billionaires

This isn't rocket science; it's getting our fucking priorities straight.

Cadet Bone Spurs wants you to cut benefits for veterans to give tax breaks to his family and his wealthy buddies.

Then they sell you t-shirts that say "Vets before refugees."

Nah, I got a better idea: "Vets and refugees before fucking billionaires."  I mean, Jesus was a refugee.

Americans need to pull their heads from their asses and get their priorities straightened out.
