Have a new year….

I wrote this post a few days ago and scheduled it. I’ll most likely be at a party with friends I’d rather not see and do things I would prefer not to do. Any literary motivation would be sufficiently killed if I had sat down and published this on the day it actually was scheduled to post. That being said, I’ve reflected quite a bit on 2016 and the year that seemed to drag slower

Election day perceptions

This long and drawn out clown show, aka the 2016 Election, is almost over. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but I’m sure it will be just as fubar as the run up this past year. If you’ve been reading these past few weeks here, you’ll know that I’m a third-party supporter. If you’ve really been reading, you’ll know which third party candidate I supported. The who doesn’t matter anymore and at this

I reject your reality and substitute my own

Tomorrow is election day. The road this year to our next President has been like a road in Pennsylvania strewn with potholes, cracks, and crevasses. Those that live here, you know what I’m talking about and the picture is no surprise to you. I’m left with a nearly impossible choice this year where no matter what I do, the outcome has almost certainly been decided already. Speaking this morning with two people native to India

Sitting there and watching the 30 minute show (actually 17 minutes if you take out the commercials), I was struck with an overwhelming feeling of disgust and anger. At the end of

Enough about "protest" votes already!

I’m getting so disgusted with the whole voting for a third-party is a protest or wasted vote. Sorry, but I don’t buy into the mainstream media’s view on a third-party vote being a protest or wasted vote. It is my choice, my right, to vote how I see fit. My voting for a third-party counts as a vote for that candidate, PERIOD. If the Democrats or Republicans want to spin the fallacy that voting in

Year of the third party candidate

Conversations with people over the last several months has consistently floated into politics. I like to consider myself having an open mind and as such, form my opinions based on fact rather than other people’s opinions. I refuse to pander to the mainstream media’s view of “Trump or Clinton” where this is no other choice. My strong opinions and views of both these candidates is barely classified as mediocre at best. The reasons are many, but

Heartburn over next President

Inspired by In which I reluctantly “choose” Hillary by The Monster in Your Closet There are some topics of discussion that will always get people fired up, one of them being politics. Reading the personal view from one such writer that I’ve been following for a while now, I felt it was about time for me to get out a subjective and honest post about my internal points of view and why I am or
