Trumpocalypse is Here

Brace for the epic disaster coming. Today marks the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. To say that this will be disastrous for our nation and for most of the rest of the civilized world is an understatement, in spite of what you may be reading from the Tumpocolytes…

Reverse Racism Does Not Exist

Claiming so damages anti-racism efforts. Reverse racism is often used by white people when minorities call out racism and discrimination.

More Difficult Than I Perceived

Proof Trump Never Mocked Disabled Reporter?

A VERY sweary rant on this utterly sheer idiocy. Sometimes in life you just have to be a sweary guy. This is one of those times. If profanity makes your ears burn, stop here and put in a Disney Video… I just read the most insulting thing today on Herman Cain‘s Facebook page. No, I…
