Without supporters, Trump is just another crazed anarchist.

For the past few days, the news has been dominated by the seizing of the Capitol Building. We have been inundated with images and footage of what are essentially cultists desecrating one of the nations most sacred buildings. They are hard images to see. It’s hard to even comprehend that…


I’ve never been sicker in my life

It started three days ago. I woke up to blue skyed September Monday and went through my usual morning rituals. Shower, brush teeth, walk the dog, coffee and breakfast in front of my TV absorbing that day’s news. About an hour or so later I noticed I had a headache…


Yes, I know how crazy I sound

Let me start this off by saying I know how crazy I probably sound. I want to assure you that I’m not wearing a tinfoil hat and I don’t believe in grand conspiracy theories. But after the craziness of the past two years, it’s hard not to think outside the…


I needed a break from life. Between planning a wedding and gearing up to start work on a PhD, my fiancée and I have been stressed. So at the beginning of May, I thought it was finally time to use the Las Vegas tickets we purchased last June when the…

Officers nationwide are put on notice

We all remember the horrible images of George Floyd begging for his life while officer Derek Chauvin remained kneeling on his neck without remorse. What came after was nationwide rioting. Cities burned because people, both black and white were tired of blatant police misconduct aimed at minorities. …


Inequality is alive and well in our judicial system

After months of searching, charges were finally brought against two men in connection to the murder of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. Julian Khater and George Tanios were both taken into custody earlier in the month for the role they played in the January 6th Capitol riots.

All it took was a very expensive wedding.

Recently my fiancee and I set a date for our wedding. I proposed in October 2019. But if I’m being honest, I only did so to make her happy. I don’t see what the difference between being married and not being married is for a couple like us. But I…
