Mr Trump

Well, I tried. I really did. And I know alot of you did too. While Clinton carried 96% of black women voters, and 79% of Latina voters, she managed to only carry 51% of white college educated women while Trump did shiningly well with White, Rich male voters, who you got it folks, were the status quo before, and still are. White men (and almost half of white women) won you Trump, for the most part. *A majority of white women voted for Trump, disproportionately those who are older, religious and without college degrees — in other words, women who may be more steeped in, accustomed to and dependent on male authority. For these women, it seemed race trumped gender, and white supremacy was more important than broader freedoms for women. While this is disappointing, it’s also perhaps to be expected: White women in many of the states that supported Trump have historically been supporters of segregation and racism just as surely as their husbands, and have also typically opposed many of the laws that would improve conditions for all American women.* He also swept people making more than $50,000 a year, who also guess what, bought into the whole bring back coal, frack the public lands, let’s make america great since this black man’s been fucking it up, spiel. This pokes some holes in the idea that Clinton only represented for white feminists, (white people did not vote for her, really, in fact i guess there are far less feminists in general than our cozy little media bubble predicted), but I really don’t want to get into blaming, and finger pointing, because the Bernie or Bust crowd who are now busted as hell, and all the the Koch controlled “libertarian” bros, brogrammers, and the other elite males who could somehow more easily stomach a Trump presidency (because less face it, email mismanagement is now (has always been I guess???) Officially more concerning than sexual assault), got what they wanted when they turned in their vote for Mr Trump or voted against the electable progressive; will take care of all the blaming. They’ll blame the DNC (which will warrant lots of investigation), instead of the Republicans, who are clearly more unified than the progressives. It’s a shame some battleground states were so close, and I hate to be another Clinton supporter yelling at 3rd party voters, you did what you thought you had to do, and you got, what you got. What’s curious to me, that you think that this puppet is less scary. This is the scariest of all puppets. You know maybe he’ll do a 180, and not overturn gay marriage, roe vs wade, healthcare, frack and mine oil on a level never before seen in our country or any of the terrifying things in his policies; but it’s doubtful considering the Republican held strongholds in all levels of government. Read The glimpse of a green energy superpower run by a would of been President Clinton who’s bad at checking emails on her phone but pretty damn kick ass at saving the planet (or atleast trying, somehow from her place in the middle of the patriarchy Read), is over. 4 years is a long ass time. After receiving death threats on Facebook for sharing similar thoughts posted here, I’ll be on what they call a Facebreak. Enjoy your shit sandwich. I refuse to eat it, but sadly, will now be force fed to me because as we just showed our young people around the world, like Trump touts, consent isn’t needed to get what you want, you can just force feed that shit. You thought the DNC crammed Clinton down your throat? Trump is going to be the worst swallow yet. Be a slick fucker with a baseball bat and bunch of angry dudes, and people will fall into line. (scary how many times over the centuries we’ve seen this narrative before) the-walking-dead-s07e03-still-2 I don’t feel bad for my run on sentences, it’s now Trump nation. (the photo and reference about the baseball bat is from the Walking Dead, in case you haven’t seen it)

I can only hope, that this inspires people who didn’t take this seriously before, to get active because we all got our work cut out for us now. If you thought it was challenging to be anything but the status quo in the USA (which is still, not shockingly, men) before – I fear we are far far far worse off now. All the blue liberals showing up still in Washington DC right now, and yes, apparently you weren’t blue enough when you made all the progress that you did, against a fucked white supremacist patriarchy, you are now going to have to work harder than ever. I sent my dollars, my support, my voice, I even bit the bullet and took phone calls, I sent my platform out, but it wasn’t enough. We had a period of retreive where left leaning agendas such as equal rights were passed through under Obama, and people got greedy and took that for granted. They will call it the democratic elitists who lost, but I can assure you it will be the those who are not represented by the white supremacist patriarchy who will pay the highest price. While she won the popular vote, it wasn’t enough to turn the tide on the status quo. Hate won that battle.

An open letter to Hillary Clinton


Dear Hillary Rodham Clinton,

I’ve found myself in a sometimes troubling situation; having to often defend you when I was an early Bernie Sanders supporter. Bernie Sanders appealed to such a broad range of people; from my bible thumping ultra Conservative Republican family (who let’s face it, still would of voted for Trump), to my far left friends and associates. His drama and scandal free platform, his consistent anti-war stance, his continued fight for equal rights throughout his entire career, his seemingly simple solutions to complex problems all ignited a sense of unity across the party lines. He boldly shed light on issues that many have accepted as status quo in the USA. He made us dream that perhaps our student loans wouldn’t be an overwhelming debt that we live under every month. That families planning for college might actually not have that burden all this while “pursuing an agenda of dealing with stagnant incomes and income inequality is no longer the liberal pole in the Democratic Party but is the solid majority position,” – In a sense Sanders encouraged people to ask for more from our politicians all across party lines. While 71% of people under 30 voted for Sanders in the primaries, his inability to gain support among POC communities was his main issue and therefore cost him the primaries. (that fact there is an indication of some greater issues surrounding Sanders that goes largely unaddressed) Read Also many believe the DNC had their faith rooted in you and ignored warnings that you will be ousted much easier than the Socialist, though considering how people showed up for the Republicans this year, that is a toss up we’ll never know. There are many views both supporting both sides of the issue. Read or Read

Many of my friends and peers who were Bernie Supporters were outraged by your appointment. Many, still until this day feel as though you somehow cheated, (even though scientific studies have proven time and again that voter fraud is an extremely rare occurrence). Watch In fact, voter disenfranchise is much more of a real world problem than stealing the election. And certainly the Republican party has a much more substantiated history of voter fraud. Bernie Sanders himself has never cried voter fraud and is endorsing you. I don’t believe he was forced to either. I believe Bernie Sanders has been threatened his entire political career and wouldn’t just throw in the towel now, I believe he sees the big picture, and like I, is now doing what it takes to see you in the White House. I love that you have adopted some of his policies into your platform.

You have some great people that believe in you. I see some extremely progressive, smart, and informed people taking up for you. However this isn’t always easy. I’m not interested in the scandal and propaganda. Your email mismanagement doesn’t frighten me, as I realize email servers, including the United States governments’ get hacked, and what was revealed in your emails, was largely unconcerning to me. I also don’t follow wikileaks and don’t think the brogrammers behind the hacks have my ideals in mind, nor do they represent people like me. I realize that the way classified information is handled needs to be changed on a massive level, but this isn’t just your fault, this is the failing of the system. I think you’ve acknowledged this and I think you’ll certainly be more careful in the future. Between Trump and his embodiment of racism, sexism, and failed capitalism, and the scandals that plague you, this election has been taking a toll on us all. But I don’t care about your drama, what I do care about are your policies. I realize you haven’t always supported marriage equality (a big deal for me) but you’ve come around, and I think people can change, and in fact showing that you are open to hearing the dialogue that surrounds you and adjusting is a plus. I’m excited by your energy policy, solar and wind power are really fascinating green alternatives that we’ve never seen being incorporated into the main policy platform for a nominee for POTUS. And it doesn’t take much of a read to figure out that Trump’s energy platform would be absolutely devastating for our environment (my other big political interest=environment). Even the Union for Coal Miners don’t support Trump, I mean people don’t actually want to work in mines, they want jobs. Green energy could be the shift that turns this country into the Global Green Energy Superpower that you’ve spoken of. This ignites my passion and inspires me. Out of all the politicians, I think if you really follow through on your promises, out of everyone, you have the know-how to get this done. I love that you will protect Obama’s Clean Energy and the Recovery Act.

But we can’t set aside your past record. My greatest concern is your highly interventionist activity, that has atleast twice, led to greater international issues. I’m sure you could agree that the way Libya and Honduras turned out was disastrous. I can understand the passion you must feel when you meet with rebel forces who promise democracy to their country if you help them overthrow their leaders however I think that you would be well served to take such a passionate interest in supporting the “rebel forces” in your own country. Take a hard stand for Native American rights, stand up for what’s right, here. Obama won the presidency twice, on a simple idea: “Change” – now show us what that change can look like. We’ve seen great strides in equal rights, now let’s see that across the board. Many people complain that Obama’s biggest failing is that he doesn’t talk to enough actual POC. POC are still at risk during simple traffic stops, more likely to be arrested, and this exposure of white supremacy that Obama has unearthed, has got many people more scared than before. You must address the real needs of the populations that are supporting you, and in this case you’ve got a huge following coming again from the POC community. And you must not trade lives abroad for financial support of your charity (as some have speculated). Which I realize is highly respected in the charity community and has literally helped millions and millions of people around the world. Read I also realize the charity has promised to not take foreign money if you are elected. We also have concerns about your ties to GMO and other dirty industries that you promise to reform. Though I understand these issues are never cut and dry. I realize you haven’t always been rich, and that you’ve used your insider knowledge and connections to get your family to a very wealthy level. Make sure you are never trading what’s right for what makes money. It will never turn out well. Also perhaps we don’t want to intervene in every war, though you will face criticism no matter which way you decide. For me, the fact that you have experience dealing with military situations is a good thing. It’s not like war is going to end or other countries will stop asking the USA for aid, just because Trump becomes president. (or Jill Stein for that matter)

I think this election has shown, despite what people may think, and despite what I may have thought at one point, we the people do have the power. You need to be accountable to us. If you are elected, you will be under an intense amount of scrutiny to deliver on your promises and to make moral and just decisions. Don’t let us down. But all of this isn’t just on you. There are many of us working towards the same goals as you. So if you are true to your promises, then the country, and the world will be in a lot better position.

No matter who you vote for, I think one thing we can all agree on, the elections during 2016 have been a painful experience. Reasons for this are many. For starters, we have so much on the line. Our environment, our civil liberties, our safety are all up for grabs. Social media has given everybody a soapbox that at minimum a few people will hear, but at maximum, can carry a message to millions as posts go viral on every side of the fence. With this power comes a great responsibility to us all. That responsibility is to exhaustively fact check everything you can before posting or sharing a news article. However not everyone has the time, ability, skill or interest to do this. I think what we loved about Bernie Sanders was his perceived transparency. I think what people trust the least about you, is your perceived inaccessibility. Because of the internet, we all have copious amounts of data available at our fingertips. We want to know the science behind your decisions, we want to know the why not just the what. Be transparent as much as you possibly can be, and listen to all sides of an issue and let us all weigh in. And bottomline, when there are mistakes made, because none of us are free from making mistakes, be accountable.

As someone who started out half heartedly supporting you (yes I had heard a few too many GOP propaganda scandals), I’ve now come around to not just supporting you, but excitedly so. The more I fact check and read about what you’ve accomplished, and what you’ve overcome, the more respect I have for you.

And lastly, and certainly not least, you will change the way that women grow up in this country. My mother’s generation thought they could only be nurses and teachers or housewives. My generation was taught we could reach higher, and you will show that women can get there, and not just be there, be leading the next wave of progress. As a woman who works in tech, and in the music industry, I’ve seen lesser qualified men gain favoritism with middle management simply for being men. They speak louder and get praise. We are told to not be emotional when we are passionate, told that the cards are stacked against us. I know having a woman president won’t topple the patriarchy. But it sure goes along way. My heart is overjoyed for all the little female identified children around the country who will grow up knowing they can be president of the United States! Together we are Stronger. And that means everyone on every side of party lines. The one thing we can’t let the government do, is divide us. We must unite our interests to create a better planet for humanity. The future of the world is literally at stake.



Reworking the System

**this entry is written with the hope that submissions and/or corrections will be posted by the readers – I’m looking to get facts from every angle on this matter.**

Lately there has been something of interest happening in the United States. We have underway, dare I say, a revolution of sorts. However, as far as I can tell, the only violence has been from the police force against peaceful protesters. This is a beautiful thing, because, the only way this revolution will experience a positive outcome, is through non-violence. But as an active citizen, I’d like to take some time to identify some key issues that I think should be dealt with. While I lack the time to research the means in which to achieve these goals, I hope to shine some light on the outlines of some ways I think we can rework the network that is already in place, while creating a better future. Now I have to say that I’ve spent several months on this article, and this has now become a worldwide movement. And there has been one instance of violence that I heard about, and that was in Rome. Apparently the non-violent movement, was used as a platform to create violence. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your perspective, violence is not going to solve this battle of unification of systems on a world level to, A: Save our world, and B: Create a better future. Why? Because history has shown, that war and violence has only led to death and destruction.

Short-term Goals:
Trim the fat. Why is it that there is little to no regulations in place that control the way our money is used when we entrust it to banks? Why is it that CEO’s of banks that took billions of dollars of our money in bailouts make upwards of 400 million dollars a year? What are these people even doing to make this world a better place to live? Nothing. In fact, they are responsible for destroying the global economy yet they go unpunished!? In fact they get appointed to government positions! The EU has implemented regulations that restrict the amount of bonuses that are given to banking establishment employees that give out high risk loans and other such impractical and criminal behavior, yet the US can’t seem to get it together? What is going on? Have we really turned our backs on one another so much because of greed and money that we can’t seem to sort anything out? The short-sightedness of a select few is going to end up costing us our solidarity as a country (and already has), our stability as a world economy, and since it’s all one world for the most part these days, our future Global Economies, and eventually our planet. Things need to change. Big Time. That’s what the Occupy Movement is about. Demanding change. It obviously isn’t going to come easily. This is something that every individual needs to do their best to start gathering the facts about, and doing their part to help instigate this change. We can only be responsible for ourselves, therefore, now is the time, for us, to start acting as responsible global citizens. Empower yourself!

As individuals, we all have things that we enjoy, that we are good at, and that we can contribute to one another in a way that will continue our infrastructures in positive ways. These infrastructures will organically be redefined in a peaceful way, to positively benefit everyone if every individual is doing a job in which they don’t hate, and in fact derive some sort of pleasure from. There is enough people on the planet, to assure that every job is achieved. The most hated jobs that nobody wants to do should be replaced with mechanisms. Work smarter not harder. We have technology in place to create mechanisms that can do the most menial tasks. However with innovation, comes the inherent risks of “change”. The loss of unskilled, entry level work, is always a risk. Also, let’s face it, not all people wish to acquire skills and occupy themselves this way; not everyone wants to work. The only possible solution would be if as a collective species, we say, “I’m ready to take charge, be unafraid of progress, and tune in.” Dropping out got us no where fast, it’s time to take up the arms and time for reform! Everyday you have to work, so that you can work to improve things for yourself and your world, every day. Everybody wants something for nothing. What if all of us, always gave our Everything? A New Future like nothing mankind has ever seen.

A arguing viewpoint could be, as humans I think we have a constant fear of being overturned by our own inventions. I know, as a blogger, and someone who works in the creative field on computers, I’m constantly on a computer. This for me can be sad, as it is also very isolating from other humans. However I am also connected to people all over the world because of technology. What if, there were robots to gather the trash, and clean up the muck? I wouldn’t mind that. I also wouldn’t want some evil corporation building this for me. I’d want a responsible corporation, who is an active global citizen. Corporations aren’t people themselves, but they are filled with people. I’m not exactly anti-corporation, however I’m anti-greed. I think the term “corporation” needs to be redefined in a productive way. This word is outdated for “companies/collaborations/collections” of the future. I’d want these “corporations” to build me “nice robots”, so to speak. I think key companies that, overall, have shown to be responsible in this way, should be identified, and supported, while also being subject to the same, new regulatory standards that will be in place.

So far, as a movement, our first target, has been banks. This is clearly referenced above as to why this needs to happen. If anything, the way these jobs are regulated, needs reform. Come On guys. Let’s get this budget sorted fairly and properly. Stop playing games with power. Let’s identify key services that need to happen to ensure a better future. First of all, let’s reflect on the mistakes of about 150 years ago. What if, early inventors, were empowered to explore the electric engine? We, as humans, easily get drawn to quick solutions such as fossil fuel. Liquid Death. Let’s not dig up the past, though. Let’s move forward and concentrate our extra expenditures onto alternative solutions. Let’s see cleaner air and water in our lifetimes!. Let’s see the Rain Forest start to grow back!! Why not? If there was a collective shift to push these efforts, as a whole, we could accomplish this easily. And achieve the bottom line at the same time!

As humans, we come from the Earth, also from Space, as all elements do. We are all connected in this really intricate and fascinating way. Let’s focus on this and let Science, Love, and Health prevail. And yet a good time will be had by all.

Draft draft

This paper that was drawn up is symbol to a notion of TRUE FREEDOM. By getting what the old timers have on paper, changed to fit current times, we have true change – for now. Eventually we can create our own new systems but first the people have to Talk and up-rise, in a peaceful way that doesn’t repeat FAILed systems of the past. Take over from the inside and create real change? Or what, tear down all the architecture again and start over? Kill one another? No.

Equality For All

I think it’s a good time to reflect on Equality, and what that really means. As humans, on a worldwide level, we should be able to seek as much happiness for our path in life, that is possible. We are all entitled to the same rights, atleast, within our own country, as everybody else. (Worldwide Politics is another story and something that you will probably see discussed on here in the future)

When we saw this story, we felt it was worth sharing, as it brought to light, several important topics to consider.

Republican New York Senator Comes out for Gay Marriage

“I’m tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I’m trying to do the right thing, and that’s where I’m going with this.” – Senator Roy McDonald

This is an Independent based website, and we don’t believe in party lines, but we do believe in equal rights. There is no logical reason to not allow gay marriage. First of all, 99% of all the arguments against it come from the stand point, that “the Bible defines marriage between a man and a woman”. First of all, the Bible was written by Humans living thousands of years ago, we are talking about Prehistoric man here. The most recent book of the Bible was written sometime in between 68 or 69 AD and 95 AD. That is a long time ago! HUMANKIND was very different back then. And whether this book was divinely inspired or not, is another topic. Historically, we are looking back at a time period that was very different. Easy copulation between a man and a woman was important to the survival of the species! It was essential to the fabric of the society, then, in order to assure the continuation of future man. Well this is the future, yet we are still just evolving. And it’s a constant process. But the point is, any argument based on the Bible, is completely irrelevant because when it was written, those Humans, could not of foreseen what would be appropriate for Our Time Period. Whether they were transcribing “the word of God” or Humans just discovering Psychedelics, Meditation, or whatever causes one to muse at their own existence and the existence of others and a higher power and interpret that as “God”, “Buddha” or Whoever there is no way they would have known what we need now, because the transcribers are only Human. Accepting that fact is part of the process of accepting our own humility.

We now live in a time period where we are faced with over-population, millions of homeless children, starving children – healthy families in general are a rarity in our country. In the same places in the Bible that define marriage between a man and a woman, it also condemns premarital sex, remarrying after the death of a spouse, and divorce! Yet, all of those things are legal. Therefore the argument holds no water. And lastly, not all marriages are Christian! Or even religious for that matter! Everybody is entitled to their own viewpoint as long as that viewpoint doesn’t condone violence against each other.

Now from a governmental standpoint, you can basically reference above, in America, because the Constitution is tied quite a bit to Christianity, and you can’t tell me the Constitution has never been amended. Please, we do it all the time, because, again that was written 1787, and you can’t tell me society hasn’t changed by leaps and bounds since then! Our forefathers came here to escape being persecuted for their own religions and view points, to create a free Society to do as they wished, atleast until the Puritanical fervor caught ahold. So to not change it, to fit our Society now, in itself, is Unconstitutional!

Let’s set religion aside. And take the viewpoint, Gay Marriage is only going to bring money to whatever community endorses it. Trust me, the Gays that want to get married are going to get married so fast, the courts will be pouring in the dough. Divorce attorneys should also take delight…! More money, more jobs. And while we are still based around a monetary system of trade, until something new is invented, (i’m sorry but all the systems are failing right now and need reform) – Money helps fuel a society when it is spread more evenly.

And now for the most basic of arguments which really should be rudimentary to all of us, is that if we love someone, and want to spend the rest of our lives with them, or try to, then one person’s love has the same right as another person’s love. Who is to say that one’s love for another Humanbeing is superior to another persons love for somebody else? Nobody can say that. Therefore it is only right, that we offer equal rights, to every man, woman, and any other gender identification you may poses. We are all entitled to same rights!

Earth Day, Everyday

We are living in a time period where we are seeing, on a daily basis, more and more of our natural resources becoming endangered or becoming extinct. Everyday should be Earth Day, but please, today especially, take the time to get some of the facts about our planet. We currently have a major nuclear disaster, a massive oil spill that is going relatively uncleaned up, an ocean that is filling with plastic, increasing temperatures due to loss of atmosphere, and rainforest that is over 50% deforested in less then 50 years.

Find a way to help. Recycle, buy rainforest friendly products, reduce the amount of plastic you use, volunteer at your local conservation organizations, and be proactive about staying informed. Mainstream media is not going to delivery you the facts, so its important to support organizations that are working to preserve our dwindling resources on your own. Our favorite conservation organization is the WWF. Maybe you remember ZooBooks from when you are young? Well they are alot bigger then that. Get info now: and chose your country.

We recently did a symbolic adoption of a tiger through the WWF. Currently the tiger is the most endangered species on the planet. — scroll down for various price ranges for you to donate. This is a fun way to donate to the WWF and help save a beautiful creature, that has less then 3500 members of its species left in the wild. We’ve all been to clubs or parties with more attendees then that. It’s scary.

For a full list of species available for “adoption”, click here:

Read about the World Wildlife Fund:

So whether you donate to the WWF, or your favorite organization, volunteer or go out of your way to buy products made from recycled or biodegradable material, help make today matter, and every day. It is up to us as stewards of this planet to help to restore and preserve it, after all, it’s where we live!
