In my childhood and youthful days, I know that I told racist and sexist jokes, used words and slurs about black and female classmates and strangers, judged people very harshly based entirely on their skin tone, gender, and faith. In my (very few) college years, I know for sure I drank (and smoked pot and […]
The Cheetoh In Chief released his administration’s budget proposal, and everyone and his mother is jumping on the highlight that one of the cuts would eliminate Federal contributions to the Meals On Wheels program. I had to do some digging to find out the rest of the story, but here it goes – stay with […]
This is, word for word with no commentary, President Donald Trump’s remarks on Black History Month.

“President Trump”. It makes my mouth taste funny to say that – like I just had a fork full of liver, boiled okra, and sea urchin all mixed together in a soup of bovine semen. I did not vote for Clinton. I was a Johnson voter in Georgia, and my vote for Johnson did not […]

Touted as the anti-LGBT bill, GA House Bill 757 – a bill allegedly designed to protect religious freedom in Georgia (religious freedom is under attack??) – is misunderstood by its supporters and detractors. Businesses are threatening to boycott or leave the state if it passes. The NFL has said “no Superbowl in Georgia” if it […]
I am a Free Speech absolutist. The only time speech should be regulated or restricted is when the expression infringes on someone else’s rights and liberties. The old, “You can’t yell ‘Fire’ in a crowded theater”, scenario. This extends largely to any form of personal expression – be it protest, music, art, blog posts, whatever.
