Lord Trumpismo, Pace ‘Ozymandias’

How the mighty do fall, and how the fake mighty fall, often amidst high comedy -- with a whimper, not a bang. A little fun skewering the Donald. The good news is he won't appreciate the joke.

Americans Do Not Care About Environmental Problems

“We currently see both the EPA and the Obama administration trying to pursue policies that are aimed at the average Americans. The radical environmentalists do not manage to reach people and cannot convince US citizens about the severity of environmental problems.”

More Steps Toward WW III

“On April 25th, Obama personally asked the leaders of Germany, France, UK, and Italy, to contribute to the increased NATO troops and weapons near Russia’s Baltic borders.”

Pablum for the Masses

“This year, 2016, we have more of the same absurd rhetoric and propaganda aimed at the masses. Make America Great Again for Benito Trump, Courageous Conservatives for Ted Cruz, Fighting For Us for Hillary Clinton, A Future to Believe In for Bernie Sanders and Kasich for America for low key John Kasich.”

U.S. Now Overtly at War Against Russia

“Russia is not expanding to NATO’s borders; NATO is expanding to Russia’s borders. The baldness of the Western lie to the contrary is an insult to Westerners’ intelligence.”

The Struggle for Merdeka in West Papua

“The Indonesian elite ensures that West Papua is relatively isolated from media scrutiny, access to international agencies and diplomats (even though many western states are well known to oppose any indigenous struggle for self-determination, given it would only raise questions about their own subjugated indigenous populations).”

A Critique of Human Society since the Neolithic Revolution

“You can do what others want. Or you can live your own life. For most of us, our fear will decide.”

Libertarians’ False Assumptions about Economics

“There exists overwhelming empirical evidence that the increase inequality of wealth produces, in itself, a happier and more peaceful society.”

Clinton NEVER!

“Bill Maher, in claiming that only minor differences exist between the two, is either inexcusably ignorant, or more probably, simply bloviating the views of the Hollywood elites of which he is a card-carrying member.”

Guerilla Housing: Homeless Activists Challenge Gentrification With “Tiny Homes”

“As the country slowly claws out of the economic downturn, we face crucial questions about what this recovery should mean, what recovering cities should look like, and who should get recovered along the way.”
