Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Another One… A Letter to the Media

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Another One… A Letter to the Media

This week’s planned discussion is being preempted because another ass-hat with a gun decided that he wanted to die but that he wasn’t going to screaming, crying, and alone the way he came in. This is my appeal to the media. Dear story tellers of the mainstream media; Please don’t give this shit head even one more second of coverage.

Nothing about his childhood, family history, or career. Let forget his name and let him Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear Racists, Bigots, and all other Hate-filled power players of society

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice “It was all a dream. I used read word up magazine.” I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting. When this all began it was an idea. The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by Read more »

Happy Anniversary… I mean … Happy New Year!!!

Yeah… that’s what I meant… Happy New Year folks. And what a year it was. I promised to call you out, piss you off, and talk about random stuff that interests me.

The Letter Series: Dear Propagandists

To those of you who create the narrative that encourages and promotes war and crimes against humanity; the likes of which we should never condone in so-called civilized society, I implore you to quiet your rantings. Usurpers The propaganda machine is running hot; every day there’s a new report or seemingly random newly discovered factoid that just has to be discussed right away.

All of the freedoms and liberties that we have sacrificed in favor of a false sense of security is precariously hanging off the proverbial shoulders of Read more »
