We finally got to watch the Democratic presidential candidates layeth the smack down in their first debate on Tuesday. It was definitely one for the books, and I wanted to put together a stream of consciousness/sophisticated breakdown of the debate as a whole. I’m going to try to break this up by candidate, since there … More Thoughts and ramblings (mostly ramblings) on the first Democratic Debate
See, I told you I’d (eventually) write posts that aren’t political in nature. I’ve had this on my mind for awhile, and I wanted to share it before I forget them all. If you don’t talk with me or see me regularly, it’s worth mentioning that I work at a pizza place on the weekends. … More Confessions (and Gripes) of a Pizza Delivery Driver
Photo credit: http://www.affairscloud.com/banking-awareness/letter-writing/ Dr. Carson, I write to you today as a 21-year-old college student living in Birmingham. I write not to argue or criticize, nor to donate money to your campaign or hold a “Carson 2016” sign. I write, simply, with a message. You are quite an interesting character. I have been watching your … More An open letter to Dr. Ben Carson
I can honestly say that I didn’t think I would be writing a post like this just two months ago when Donald Trump announced that he was running for president. I gave him a month before his poll numbers plummeted, and boy was I wrong. The Donald is surging, leading every other Republican candidate in every … More Trumptastrophe: Examining The Donald’s Impact Thus Far
Alright, let’s get this out of the way, because we’ve spent too much time on it already, and there are far more pressing things that I’d like to rant talk about. If you’ve paid any attention to the news (or my Facebook feed, which I have admittedly overrun with posts on the subject), the Confederate … More About that Confederate Flag….
Time for the Democratic presidential candidates list! Let’s be honest here: this list won’t be nearly as extensive as the Republican list, which I had to break into two separate blog posts. For that I am thankful, because finding that many embarrassing pictures of politicians takes a lot of time and mental scarring (seriously, Google “Chris Christie … More 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidates, COME ON DOWN!!
As I mentioned in my other list of Republican presidential candidates, I categorized them all into two groups. The candidates featured in this list are all long-shots for the nomination and the general election. And when I say “long-shots,” I’m talking about hundreds of miles of obstacles between them and the presidency. The short version here … More 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates, Come On Down! “Snowball’s Chance in Hell” Edition
Yes, I’m back to election stuff already. No, I’m not sorry. Okay, I’m a little sorry. But only a little. For this post, I’d like to take a minute to step back and look at the big picture. I’m sure I’ll be providing plenty of election input on individual candidates and issues for quite some … More 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates, Come on Down! “We Might Actually Have A Chance” Edition
Since I am going to be talking quite a bit about election stuff in the next year or so (provided I’m able to devote as much time to writing as I want to devote), I thought I’d put together some thoughts that came to me after seeing a link on Facebook. Also, I’d like to … More Racism and Stuff! (GASP! He said RACISM!!)
Yes, I know, I’ve been slacking. It’s been nearly a year since I last posted on the blog. With moving at the end of last summer and working more to pay for a new apartment, I just lost the motivation (and the time) to sit down and pour my thoughts into something remotely intelligible to … More A Wild Blog Post Appeared! Also, Election Stuff!
