another bullet…

Another bullet passed through shattered dreams that even stuffed lions couldn’t stop the football will never be kicked around again. The birthday party favors will never cover the floor again. Yet another dream of better futures broken, tossed, crippled, and charred, no respect for life or livelihood the mere breath on cold windows of winter…

Leaked : a warning

Earlier this week, an anonymous and concerned source leaked a certain document from the US Supreme Court to the newspaper media Politico. The document in question: a draft opinion from the majority concerning Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey. In short, it seems that the Supreme Court will vote 6-3 making abortions illegal. Let…

“We are no fascists!” oh yeah? Prove it.

We come back with our news bits series once more. This time, it comes as a critical specific theme with a twist. Fascists. Let us begin. 1.  It has come to our attention, franchement et scandaleusement d’une certaine manière, that a shallow attempt at democracy and freedom of speech was conducted yesterday en plein centre…

Thou Shall Not Kill

Thou shall not kill and yet here lays yet another kind, beautiful, wonderful, innocent, civil soul. Death on the tarmac, they call it except it’s death in a blanket in a home on a couch, where the monsters are not allowed. not even supposed to be.. Grievances, stupidity, wrongful, emptiness of consciousness aside Why? Why?…

Open letter to you: it wasn’t enough.

Justice has been served, they said. And yet, here we are again. Simply a sigh of relief as the jury signs off its declaration. Judgement has been passed. At last, one innocent soul has been granted recognition. That one innocent soul died before their time and now, they can finally be fully laid to rest….

Of Women and rights and minds….

(when a story gets too emotional and personal..) The opening scene is a reminder that our societies have not changed much. Toxic masculinity at its worst. And, of course, even today, we are expected to be nice. Not our advice to us all. We prefer screaming out and being direct. (I have always wanted to…

Who are we, if we know who we are? Still divided but turning a page.

Two weeks ago, a fascist terrorist like “mob” crashed into the US capital all the way to the federal government’s buildings.  The reaction? Journalists: This is a never-seen before scene… and other missteps comparing to war zones created by the US imperialism. Politicians: This is not the United States of America. However, that’s the problem….

Voting in the Major A to F chords

The following is a reaction to an article read. And a very important message. The shame. The United States is literally the only country in the world to have an election-voting rights system the way it does. Citizens are not computers. Paper ballots are not fraud. And writing is a necessary tool in life but…

The broken record cracked.

Someone told me a few days ago, “we need to talk about it. We need to react.” This isn’t analysis. It’s officially too personal. But it’s important. Black Lives Matter. It’s not a trend. It’s not a fashion statement. It’s not even a lifestyle. It is a fact. It is reality. I have seen too…

8 clippings of news

This week in the news. We wrote a piece like this a few years ago. We’re going to try it out. This past year is an extraordinary year, not necessarily in a positive way. We’ve already discussed certain events. These past few weeks though have been charged with tension, emotions, and craziness. 1. Turkey’s Erdogan…
