Should be required watching for Liberals and would-be Progressives.

Where’s the lie, though? Probably in the same place as all the “hope and change.”

Perhaps. But I can’t not let my conscience be my guide. Hopefully, that’s true of most people.

That strike should’ve happened. I have never more firmly believed that (NEO-)LIBERALISM is the truest enemy of PROGRESSIVES. …


Truth to power, and engagingly written. I relate to every bit of it. What makes it so spot-on is that so many on social media use these tactics for ANY convo that is too challenging or hits too close to home or here they're trying to discredit or gaslight. It's…


I can't say I'm NOT glad that asshole is dead.

I can't condone murder, either, though.

What's right isn't always legal and what's legal isn't always right. I think laws against vigilantism exist and persist for VERY good reasons. Not every case is this cut-and-dried--with incontrovertible video proof. The next…


You're one HELLUVA lady. You took the high-road with class, and still managed to say what SO MANY in similar shoes are thinking.

It ISN'T your fault she's a bitch and likely a Karen, too. And as much fun as she sucked out of this First for you ... she…


The whole turn off for me and a lot of folks I know, regarding John Carter was the glorification of a Confederate soldier--his elevation from a traitor to his country to the hero of a whole world. That is absolutely mindblowing and NOT in a good way AT ALL.

I remember Judith Barsi so well. Her voice. I LOVED her in The Land Before Time (she played Ducky!). I've always remembered her name and her beautiful little VOICE--she was one of the reasons that I've always kept tract of VO actors and where they turn up. But I had…


A text your humble bug sent to friends in the immediate aftermath of the verdict for the Derek Chauvin Trial (approx. 5pm, EST).

Derek Chauvin had just been found guilty on all counts, with sentencing to come. I texted the above message to a group chat with some friends.

I had been waiting with held breath alongside (over some airwaves) these friends for an hour that’d felt like eternity in an eye-blink. And…


If only any Black person, child or adult, got to be this naïve so far into their double digits-numbers. Or naïve into their double digit-years at all. . . .

I tried to comment on the video but Youtube wouldn’t let me. Dunno what’s going on there, but …


I know, Mr. Paul Mooney . . . I know. And, yeah, it WILL be starring Tom Hanks. WE ALL KNOW how Hollywood do.

More shenanigans in my favorite and most frequent forum.

I stumbled across the response screen-capped below, whilst trawling the comments section of an article on Very Smart Brothas (part of Theroot.com), titled:

Yeah, It’s Time to Bury the Cutesy ‘Karen’ Nickname for Dangerous White Women.”

I’m just a bug with progressive values, strident opinions, and Interwebz. Black, ace/aro, a-gender, A-spec, ADHD. Âû. A-awesome. You’ve been warned.
