I have a B.A. in creative writing from San Francisco State. Can people please donate? I'm very low-income. I need to start an escape the Ferengi plan.

How does it work?

    The Plastic Crisis

    The Plastic Crisis

    My solution that covers the plastic crisis is to clean it up. We need fleets of ships designed to do just that. California has plenty of coastlines to clean up. We have the whole of the West Coast, bedsides, to try this idea out on. 12.7 million tones of plastic winds up in our ocean every year, according to the BBC earth website. This is because plastic has trouble breaking down, being recycled and degrading. Aspergillus tubigensis is one such natural way to fix the problem as this fungus lives in warm habitats. This fungus could be let loose in a landfill, which would breakdown problematic plastics such as diapers.

    The True Origins of the Democrat and Republican Party

    The True Origins of the Democrat and Republican Party

    If you've survived Catholic School, you will have an awareness of what a history book looks like. Wikipedia states that the Democratic Party is the oldest party. Political parties got started originally so that commoners could figure out which way to vote according to their value system. The Democratic Party was founded in 1828. The Democratic Party was founded to support Andrew Jackson, but later on it evolved to be a party that was known for its liberalism. In order to get rid of political parties, we have to assume that there is a way to live without them.

    What Would I Do In Their Place?

    What Would I Do In Their Place?

    Many years from now I will face certain crises if I'm ever elected into office. Our current President endures many a kind of public criticism or backlash for his behavior. Former President Barack Obama has called President Donald Trumps' response to the coronavirus crisis a chaotic disaster, which makes him even more sure that 45 must be defeated in November. Strong government leadership is not happening during this crisis, because the election that is coming up determines battle lines being drawn against selfishness, tribal attitudes, being divisive and causing others to see each other as enemies. This is what we are fighting, negativity at large, causing the world to believe narcissistic lies.

    How to Get Rid of Bad Politicians in Congress

    How to Get Rid of Bad Politicians in Congress

    I'm not targeting anybody in particular, so I'm just going to speak in general terms. We need to vote out our fascist-leaning politicians, but Democrats and Republicans are empty distinctions. Our system of government is something the rest of the world never saw before. Bad politicians need to be peacefully voted out of office. History will be determined once the dust settles, but we need to take our democracy back as a collective. Democracy should be something we need to take back in general because it has been corrupted by the current administration.

    Sweeping Police Reforms, San Jose, CA

    Sweeping Police Reforms, San Jose, CA

    Right now, people all over the United States are fed up with police. They refuse to put up with things as they are, but Mayor Sam Liccardo took a different approach by not giving in to the people's demands to defund the police department, while also making sure they stop using tear gas or rubber bullets. Liccardo, according to the Mercury News, decided to provide a budget that will impact police reform more than focusing on defunding them entirely. The 2020-21 fiscal year starts July 1st, but the mayor feels that San Jose is not staffed as well as it could be. Communities of color ask for more police, but sometimes face being victimized by crime more often than other communities.

    Now Everybody Knows

    Now Everybody Knows

    And how is everybody faring with lockdown measures? I'm taking precautions daily about how not to wind up with the virus. COVID-19 is a tricky devil from what I've read. I'm determined to avoid getting it, so I have invested my time in learning about lemongrass tea which is a gentle immune system booster having no side effects. It even tastes like lemon without the citrus chemicals that could give me heartburn. But anyway, lockdown is a measure that has been taken to prevent the infection from spreading. I'm hiding out at home until it is absolutely safe to go out. I have a physical therapy in-person appointment coming up at the end of this month.
