I’m an Influencer now!

This is some silly shit I just made. I’ve been quite depressed of late, and that always sucks.

I don’t know about you guys, but it sure is fun to watch these YouTube videos of scammers getting pwned. I’ve come across them in the past, but today I’ve been on a binge. And not the type of binge that lasts six days and leaves you full of shame and regret, though I guess there is some shame and regret involved after seven hours of sitting up in bed and telling yourself Just one more video. Anyway, I stumbled upon a YouTube channel this morning and have been watching a charismatic young man prank and confront internet scammers for…

America, November 2020

I’ve always had issues with Veterans’ Day. I think it’s dangerous in the first place to fetishize things in general, but it’s immeasurably more so to exalt the state, and specifically the military. Most Americans, I’m confident, would agree that North Korea is on some next level dictator-brainwash shit when they worship the Kims, when they prostrate themselves and deify the Glorious Supreme Leader; but these Americans fail to make the connection. What does it say about us as a nation when we can’t even play a high school sports game without removing our hats and saying a prayer to…

Sensationally Sexy Socialist Goes All Weak-Lib!!

As I said in my previous post, I don’t want to sensationalize and ridicule people, I don’t want to spread more division and hate and fear. I genuinely believe that we need to come together and heal. I am not taking a soft, centrist stance, I am not saying there are good people on both sides, I am not saying we need to give anybody a pass. …

I hate to sensationalize, but those sensational headlines get clicks and, as I’ve stated before, Clicks Rule Everything Around Me, CREAM! Get the money, dollar dollar bill, y’all!

11 September 2019 — Gilbert, Arizona

There are still many Americans walking around today saying things like ‘Support Our Troops” and “Never Forget.” It amazes me that we still get worked up over September Eleventh. It was tragic, it was traumatic, it was life-changing, it changed the whole world! But it has been almost two decades and we’ve got a lot more important things to worry about, things that directly impact not just our daily lives but the lives of billions around the world. Things like Neo-Colonialism disenfranchising and destroying the majority of the Global South, Proto-Fascism becoming mainstream in America and several other Western nations…

I am saving this sticker to remind myself that I spent twelve years being an idiot, and that participating in electoral politics is just as important as direct action and activism.

The last time I voted was two thousand eight. I gave up after that, falling into the doomer mindset that my vote doesn’t matter. I felt that not only were there no politicians who represented and defended me, there was no point in voting because the machine exists primarily to take care of itself, and voting for token politicians does nothing to combat the exploitative system. I wrote about it a week or so ago, I’m not especially proud of that one, but it’s there if you want to read it.

A family vacation at the Great Salt Lake, Utah - October 2020

In my travels across Internetland I make an effort to engage in as many conversations as I can. I do this because I want to know that the beliefs and worldview I hold are as close to sound and valid as can be.This is an ongoing process that will never be complete, but it is important to me to live in the real world, and a large part of that is learning from the people around me and admitting when I’m wrong. Several times in these cyber-conversations I’ve come across the argument that the success of the West has largely…


Up until about eighteen months ago I was comfortably politically apathetic. I grew up a punk rock, allegedly anarchist kid, but I guess I never really understood what it was that I should have and could have been doing in order to support the cause. I read Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn after hearing them mentioned in conversations with older punk rock and hip hop kids. From there I went on to learn about Marx and Nietzsche and Camus and Tolstoy and all the other late European philosophers that have largely molded my worldview.


(Must Be My TDS)

I consider myself a Patriot, despite many dissenting opinions from the Right

I read a post on Medium the other day. I’ve been grappling with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) for the last couple years, according to some of my friends, and this article gave me a flare-up. Incidentally, these friends of mine who claim that I have a novel mental health issue; an issue that I think is less a health concern and more an actual sense of ethics and morality, have almost to-the-man all come down with The Ro; one of them is currently seriously ill and may or may not make it. It sucks to say…
