What Orlando Proves About Misconceptions of Terrorism

We live in a society that has beat the dead horse in a sense when it comes to the word “terrorism”. Ever since 9/11, our American senses have been short-shocked to imagine religion in the form of Islam to be the only form of “terrorism”. This is a horrendous misconception, with Americans going as far as completely ignoring domestic terrorism right before their very eyes because “the suspect doesn’t look like what we’ve been told a terrorist is.”

The Clam Fossil Story

For the next six months, I was an archeologist. I went out nearly every day in search of treasure in the form of these strange rocks. I hung a medium-sized bucket from my precious bike’s handlebars and filled it up several times each day. Some of these rocks were big, even larger than my hand. Some of them were small, barely fitting within the palm of my hand. But they all interested me more than I could express to anyone.

America’s Worst Governors

Consider this post a denouncement, if you will, for the following Governors of American states that have proven time and time again that they don’t belong in office. From corruption to stupidity, these are the American Governors that should be impeached — or, in the very least, not be re-elected or allowed into political office in the future — in no specific order…

Democrats, We Need to Unite.

I will spoil this for you: your third party candidate cannot and will not win in a political bipartisan society dominated by DEMOCRAT and REPUBLICAN. Your write-in of Bernie Sanders will not win against an official DEMOCRATIC nominee with an electoral vote dependent on getting near the White House. A vote for anyone against the Democratic nominee — or an absence of a vote for said Democratic nominee — will lead to four years of Donald J. Trump.

Debbie Gets Primaried: Progressivism on The Rise

Party stalwarts, including many die-hard Clinton fans, criticize the decision to hide primary debates on weekend nights, setting them up for Clinton successes while lying about giving each candidate “equal air time.” And in a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine, Wasserman Schultz insulted millennial women for being “complacent” about abortion rights. Her third wave feminism seems to insult many female Bernie voters, as well. The Sanders campaign also claimed in December of 2015 that the DNC — chaired by Schultz — was “actively attempting to undermine” his campaign after the DNC denied Sanders access to the party’s 50-state voter files.

Marco Rubio & The Case for Jeb Bush

I’ve been saying this since day one, and I’ll keep saying it until he fades into political oblivion: Marco Rubio is a terrible, horrendously bad politician. He’s an empty suit, a shell of a man who does whatever the establishment hand up his rear tells him to do. He’s a terrible Senator, and he’s done absolutely nothing for my home state of Florida in the six years we’ve seen him in the Senate. I, personally, put several Republicans above him: including but not limited to Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Rand Paul…you’re starting to get the picture here. I don’t really like those guys, I just put them higher than Rubio. I think the only Republicans I’d put lower than Marco Rubio on my list are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and people like Mike Huckabee.
