Punishment Is Not Justice

A few days ago, someone on Twitter posted a question. They asked if putting Donald Trump in prison would help begin the healing process for our country. I don’t know why, but I decided to answer the question and said, “No. It will just fire up his base.” (Don’t worry, I’ve learned my lesson. I […]

Quick Questions: The Afghanistan Withdrawal

Since American troops pulled out of Afghanistan and the Taliban began retaking the country, people have been talking about it a lot. However, no one seems to be talking about how to ameliorate the situation, or even explaining why the situation is bad. Instead, everyone is pointing fingers and assigning blame. The usual suspects are […]

Am I the Only One Bothered By This – Impeachment Edition

Trump’s second impeachment trial is currently happening in the Senate. I feel like I should be paying attention, but I can’t. I’m just so fatigued from the last four or five years. He’s not president anymore, I’d like to never think about him again. In some vague way, I hope he’s convicted. He’s obviously guilty, […]

Trump’s Presidency – A Different Kind of Take

As Trump left the White House, I felt a huge amount of relief. I’m not exactly optimistic about the future, but it’s a step in the right direction. While I was thinking about this, I had a strange thought that I want to explore a little bit. In actuality, Trump’s presidency wasn’t as bad as […]

We Need More Tepid Takes

Like almost everyone else, I spent a good chunk of yesterday watching in horror as Trump’s thugs looted the Capitol. I tried not to, but I wound up on social media and some news sites reading what people had to say about it, everyone from pundits and politicians to regular people, friends, strangers, people I […]

Buzz Kill

I haven’t posted anything about politics since election day. So many people have been so happy with the results. People were literally dancing in the streets. I don’t want to mess with that. I want people to be happy, I really do. I just don’t get where that happiness is coming from. I know Biden […]

I’m Confused

I didn’t think I could be surprised anymore. The past four years have been that bizarre. But when news broke that the FBI arrested a group of terrorists who were planning on kidnapping Governor Gretchen Whitmer and overthrowing the government of Michigan, I have to admit, I was surprised. Though I’m having some trouble figuring […]

Short-termism

I’m not, by nature, a person concerned with the short-term. If I lie awake worrying, there’s a better chance that I’m worrying about the eventual heat-death of the universe than what might happen at work tomorrow. An hour, a day, a year are nothing. I can stand on my head that long. Give me the […]

Trump and Truth

This sign recently appeared in one of my neighbor’s yards: I don’t know these neighbors. And, seeing as they’re Trump supporters, I have no interest in getting to know them. Normally, I wouldn’t notice a campaign sign at all. I don’t generally take political advice from cardboard signs. It’s not clever or humorous or insightful. […]

The Scariest Thing I’ve Ever Heard

During an interview that was broadcast on July 19th, Chris Wallace asked Donald Trump if he would accept the election results if he lost the election. Trump refused to answer, saying, “I’m not going to just say yes. I’m not going to say no, and I didn’t last time either.” It’s irrelevant what he did […]
