It’s Been A Long Time… I Shouldn’a Left You…

It’s Been A Long Time… I Shouldn’a Left You…

I promise, I only left because… because… let me do this right.  I’d love to say that I left because our Ruthless Leader decided to take a different path, but that would be a lie; I was mostly MIA quite a while before that happened. Y’all know I’m not much for lies, duplicity, or feigning optimism, so I’m going to apologize in advance if I shatter any false ideas you’ve cultivated over the years. The simple version is that I was pulling my life together. Unfortunately, the simple version never quite does it for me, so here we go: I was busy being Read more »

“Fear And Loathing in Saint Louis” or My trip to Ferguson Part 2: Fear of a Reasonable Black Planet

We were somewhere near the McDonald’s on West Florissant, when the tension began to take hold. My buddy was of course filled with a bit of dread from the moment I parked and we started walking around down there, but I of course had no similar mentality. It wasn’t until I was keenly aware that the crowd down at the QuikTrip had become loud enough to hear where we were(And between us and the car), that I thought the day might begin to turn. Still even at this time we were seeing protestors talking to te few police that were Read more »

Driving While Black

Before Cap was Cap, he was a small, underwhelming boy who was nothing less than desperate to serve his country. It was really just that simple. And complicated. Enter S. H. I. E. L. D.

Politics, Governments, & You… Oh My

Politics, Governments, & You… Oh My

Politics is everything. I’d end it there, but then that wouldn’t do it justice now would it? The schools, the roads, minimum wage, medical care, personal freedom… everything we have and do as residents of our communities ‘is’ because one government entity or another allows it to be so. Extreme? Remember the other day when you had to wade waist-deep through garbage to get into your car that fell apart because it hadn’t been properly assembled, and then when you finally made your way to work, your boss told you that you’d be taking a 50% pay cut and working Read more »

Talk of Politics

Talk of Politics

Hello again readers of Justice, it is I the ever opinionated Rufus coming to you this monday morning with talk of politics. Now i’m not sure i’ve ever spoke much on politics, mostly because A) I don’t really trust the government. and B) Quite honestly I know little on the subject in general, mostly because of A. That’s not to say i’m an idiot when it comes to politicians, oh no i know about them quite well, but when it comes to who is doing what or who is causing what, i tend to hold my tongue. We all know Read more »
