The America we deserve

We’re free.  That’s all I could think when I read the news.  Joe Biden won the election. He actually did it. I was fearful on election night that it wouldn’t happen.

A message for those protesting

This is a message for those who are protesting their state’s lockdown: the whole “my body, my choice” mantra doesn’t apply to you. Disgruntled Americans nationwide are gathering to call for their governors to ease restrictions, because they’re tired of doing the one thing they’re good at: nothing. Angrily picketing […]
