We Forgot

      No Comments on We Forgot

Last week was the 22nd anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11.  If you went anywhere near social media you were inundated by millions of “Never Forget” posts. But the problem is we DID forget. We forgot what the events of that day did to us as a nation.   We forgot about every store in America running out of American… Read more »

It’s Called Acting People!

      No Comments on It’s Called Acting People!

Lately there has been a lot of hubbub about straight actors playing gay characters, cis actors playing trans characters, etc.  Normally I am all about equal rights and representation of ALL kinds of people, but this one that I think the angry mob has wrong.  I understand the thought behind this reasoning and I know that their hearts are in the… Read more »

RIP Twitter

      No Comments on RIP Twitter

No, Twitter isn’t dead yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Twitter has been around since 2006 and has never made a profit.  Not once.  It’s fascinating that it’s lasted this long based on that fact alone.  But there are many other companies- Carvana and Peloton come to mind – who haven’t ever made a dime either.  Also fascinating,… Read more »

Unpopular Opinions Volume 3

      No Comments on Unpopular Opinions Volume 3

It’s been a while since I’ve done a rant session.  I feel like we need to rectify that. #1 There is nothing more despicable than people who spread medical nonsense.  Cure for cancer hoaxes, anti-vaxxers, the COVID deniers, the list goes on.  There aren’t any upsides to spreading lies and half truths that can – and have- killed people.  The… Read more »

That’s not an Insult

      No Comments on That’s not an Insult

Calling someone “woke” is supposed to be an insult.  Supposedly it’s someone who’s out of touch and living in some kind of fantasy land. That is hilarious. People who don’t think the LGBTQ community deserve human rights are the ones who are out of touch.  People who think women don’t deserve full bodily autonomy are ones who are out of… Read more »

An Open Letter to Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds

Dear Kim- I have a question.  It’s been bugging me for a while now and I think it’s time I asked. What the actual fuck are you doing?   Are you trying to ruin everything or are you just that inept? Iowa used to be number one in the nation for education.  In Minnesota we took the “Iowa Basic Skills Tests”… Read more »

Freedom of Information Day

      No Comments on Freedom of Information Day

Given the current testimony coming out of the Dominion vs. Fox “News” case, this is an important day to recognize. As Americans we have the right to know what our government is doing (with the exception of items of national security).  We also have come to expect that news outlets- especially well known, national ones – will also access this… Read more »

Why Not Indeed

      No Comments on Why Not Indeed

We all have that friend of family member who frequently posts things from some obscure site no one’s ever heard of with the caption “Why Won’t the Mainstream Media Cover This”? Of course, everyone with an IQ over 12 knows the answer.  Because it’s complete and utter BS.  It’s the invention of a sad person longing to get noticed.   Frequently… Read more »
