Dear Future Senator AOC
Dear Representative Ocasio-Cortez: I fully believe that you will be a New York Senator in the near future. I cannot wait to march as many souls to the polls to vote for you and your progressive agenda. You are going to be an amazing representative of all New Yorkers.
Slender fingers of amber light poke through the window display, politely illuminating the shop interior. He looks up from his paperwork. Moving shadows from the street randomly interrupt the sun’s rays. On days like this, as his focus shifts from desktop to window, he easily imagines himself a lone figure at the centre of a zoetrope; the world beyond the plate glass flashing past: slowly coagulating into one coherent image.
How I Teach My Son (His)tory
My eldest is just old enough to understand the difference between him and the child sitting next to him. He's becoming vocal about what he sees and perceives as unfair and unjust while also voicing the need for, in his words, for everyone to just love each other everyday. Sadly, my goofy, beautiful, spirited child is also standing on the line, in what society normalizes, between cute innocent child and possible threat.
Bernie Sanders: Loses the Nomination, Wins the Internet
God bless America, land that I love. Land of the free, home of the brave, unhinged social media users that take a traditionally monumental occasion and add a little... spice.
Why Trump's Twitter Ban Is A Bad Idea
For some reason, unknown to probably everyone, Trump decided that his go-to way of communicating with the American people over the last 4 years would be Twitter. He fully embraced the medium and definitely became the first full on social media president.
Martin Luther King Jr and his impact within Europe
With Martin Luther King Day approaching (18/01/2021,) it is essential to remember all the good he created and inspired in others during his life. He was a man of significant influence, having the profound ability to entice his listeners and make them aware of all the injustices their own country was serving them. Before King came along and took hold of the civil rights movement, the topic was not often thought of, let alone spoken. King opened black Americans' eyes to the fact that they should not endure inequality, but stand up to it and demand equal rights. He also opened the eyes of white Americans who needed to know that segregation was unnecessary and cruel, that being white does not mean they can stand back and watch.
Trump’s “Go Home” Message to his MAGA Supporters was a War Cry
After president-elect Joe Biden called for the US President Donald Trump to go on national TV and denounce the attacks on the Capitol and Senate grounds, Trump responded by a one-minute video on Twitter. Twitter immediately disabled the reply, retweet, and sharing options for the video.
Alex Padillo and Deb Haland are helping change the face of American politics
When I was growing up, the president, Vice President and others in the White House were always white males. I never really gave it a thought until I saw Colin Powell and Condolrrxa Rice serving in the Bush administration as Head of the Joint Chiefs of Dtaff and Secretary of State. During the Civil Rights era of the 1960s, the focus was on equal rights for African Americans and these two certainly proved that progress had been made. When Barack Obama won the US presidency in 2008 and 2012, he made history as the first president of color as a biracial man.

Changing Faces of A City: How London Sold Its Soul to The Private Equity Devil.
On the 17th of May 1984, nearly 37 years ago, Prince Charles gave the most extraordinary speech, about the changing face of his beloved city, which interestingly, has aged spectacularly well.
Space travel as an economy lesson
Astronauts returning to Earth after having spent time in space often describe the emotional and cognitive impact of seeing our planet from „above”. This is the overview effect. A unique experience that produces a shift in their perception about life on earth.
In The Crossfire: Lauren Southern’s Strategy
INTRODUCTION: Right before the beginning of the 2021 New Year, I read about right-wing agitator and Canadian documentary filmmaker Lauren Southern’s return.
A New Suggestion For The Biden Administration About Fannie Mae
Questions remain about what the Biden administration will do with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. However, a new report from the Brookings Institution’s Economic Studies Group offers insight into what could happen to the government-sponsored enterprises. It suggests that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac be used to drive more racial equality in the housing industry, something the Biden administration could get behind.
Check Your Pockets for Scandal
Calvin Chase shook his head as he crept away from the crowd listening to the presentations. U.S. Senator Gerald “Jerry” Stevens’ speech had been his motivation to bolt. He knew that he would, by nature and by occupation, disagree with every word the senator said, but today’s comments at the chamber of commerce’s annual political soiree were beyond bearable.
The right to bear one less arm.
Sam Gregor was loved by everyone and known by no one. The year started on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. It was 1989. Two years before the fall of the Berlin wall and two years after The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed for the first time above 2,000, gaining 8.30 to close at 2,002.25. It had been a long year in a busier decade. It was the year U.S. President George H. W. Bush banned the importation of certain guns in the United States. The guns banned were classified as assault weapons. Semi-automatic rifles. George H W Bush had given the people the right to bear one less arm.
Why Trump is still a force to be reckoned with
BRYCE ON POLITICS - The fight is not over. When Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush lost their re-election bids, they quietly faded away and became nothing but footnotes in history. They primarily occupied their time by building their presidential libraries. None considered a second run for the presidency. They had had enough. However, the same cannot be said about former President Trump. Building a library is the last thing on his mind. Retaking the White House and cleaning up the Washington Swamp is of paramount importance to him.
An Open Letter to All Americans
Dear Americans: I write this letter because I love the beauty and magic that exists within every human spirit. I write for the human spirit’s mesmerizing ability to perform and bring to life thought provoking reality bending machinations of the mind. I write in earnest desire to protect the humanity that exists within our individual spirits, and threads us together as one society. I write in hopes that we may meet, deliberate and debate the truths we uncover as we explore society’s sacrosanct principles and ugly truths. I write because America the bold, America the beautiful, and America the idea …is dying!
