The People Are Working VERY Hard TY Very Much.

What’s going on right now is not about working hard. Or rather, what is going on in this country is not the result of people not working hard enough. It is not the result of people being lazy, nor is it the result of people getting handouts. Corporations are getting those. The people, not soContinue reading “The People Are Working VERY Hard TY Very Much.”

We Ask Way Too Much of our Teachers

I am the daughter of a teacher. I was scared for my mother’s safety long before the pandemic, and now… well fuck me right. We ask way too much of our teachers in this country. Teachers take bullets for their students. Teachers feed and clothe their students. Teachers adore and support their students. AND onContinue reading “We Ask Way Too Much of our Teachers”

The American Experiment is Over

Everything about the way we are living in America is wrong. And if you feel like we can run from this any longer, you’re wrong; we quite literally cannot. The American experiment is over.

I Lost the Battle, but We Won the War

Last year I had to write a paper regarding the arguments before the Supreme Court interpreting the meaning of the word sex within the Civl Rights Act of 1964. I scored terribly.

Taxes Ya’ll

The collection of money through the tax system is the single biggest demonstration of our humanity at work. Humans earn income, and then give up a portion of that money to fund social life. Beautiful right?!!? The issue however is that in this country the collection of taxes isn’t really where we keep missing theContinue reading “Taxes Ya’ll”

For ‘Deep

The person who knows exactly what its been like when everyone else asks me what the fuck I am going to do. What I am going to do is contact our Governor. Duh… When you look up New York City in the dictionary you see my face. Or at least that’s what my mom hasContinue reading “For ‘Deep”

On Privilege

I have been seeing a lot of videos on Tik Tok, talking about white allies. Which is wonderful because as a white person it can be really difficult to navigate the waters of race relations in modern times. And, we are literally one species on planet Earth, so until we all learn to work together,Continue reading “On Privilege”

Why Amy Cooper’s Name (and Face) Matters More Than Christian Cooper’s

Because America needs to know what criminal behavior looks like, and who is perpetrating the violence. And it does not matter who Mr. Cooper is (handsome), where he comes from, or how he came to be in the Rambles (bird watching). This story is about Amy Cooper, who didn’t like being told the area’s leashContinue reading “Why Amy Cooper’s Name (and Face) Matters More Than Christian Cooper’s”
