    Thank you Artists

    Thank you Artists

    As I thought about the last for years as someone living in the United States, I asked myself, "how did we all make it?" But of course not all of us did. There has been so much tragedy and hardship for so many. With the rise of hatred and racism. It was always there bubbling under the surface but certain political enablers had emboldened it. With banning certain people from the country, and the terrible separations at the border. Nothing has really felt alright for empaths for the past four years. And then the pandemic hit and everyone was forced to make a choice. To stay home and take precautions or to do whatever they wanted. But for most of us, we were faced with true disaster for the first time. So for those of us still hanging on and getting by, what has got us through four years of repeated chaos and then several months of heightened trauma?

    Donald Trump Should Never Run for Office Again

    The Fairest Election Ever This year was one of the most highly contested presidential elections of all time. It was also one of the most difficult due to the COVID-19 epidemic which caused states to make drastic changes to their voting processes. Fortunately, this was realized early enough that most states had enough time to make the changes necessary to have a smooth and fair election. This should go down as Donald Trump's greatest achievement as president.

    The past four years as a black woman in America

    This is my personal story and you don't have to agree. If you have not walked in my shoes you will never understand. On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, I, along with other people of color, and the LBGTQ community felt a tightening in our chests. we braced ourselves for the worst and it came. My best friend said Trump would fire everyone as if he were still on The Apprentice and he did. I told her that racists would come out of the woodwork and they did. We both said The Donald would not be able to show himself presidential and he never did.

    The Running Faucet vs. The Leaky Faucet (The Slow Drip)

    The Running Faucet vs. The Leaky Faucet (The Slow Drip)

    Being Black, at any given time, in any given country, on any given day, is usually in and of itself a trying experience for most (but not all) Black people. Whether it’s the constant microaggressions we face on a daily and continuous basis, the sometimes blatant racist attacks and remarks that are levied at us with complete disregard for our humanity or feelings, or the total lack of regard for our lives when encountering law enforcement and medical professionals, we live our lives knowing that in most cases we will be treated differently. We see it in the ways we are treated in other non-black POC’s grocery stores, taxi cabs and restaurants. We see it in our education systems and the ways Black children and communities in particular are not or poorly invested in. These disparities are not new or unique to the Black experience, no matter what country you live in. But there IS a difference in how they are displayed and the corresponding effects they have on our community as a whole.

    Pacifistic Activism in a Non-Pacifist Country

    The past several decades in the U.S. have been characterized by great racial tensions that have come to a boiling point in 2020. Amidst a global pandemic, a defining presidential election, and a rise in social media influence among Gen Z, the transgressions of our nation are in full view for the world to see. And just like in the 1960s, activists today are faced with the issue of whether they will choose to be a pacifist in their fight against oppression or seek justice and equality by any means necessary. In this debate, people are often driven by their morals in their decision making, but is pacifism a viable means of fighting against systemic oppression in a nation where our greatest achievements have been solved through violent means?

So when quarantine happened, I was (admittedly) happy.. but only because I didn’t have to commute and especially because I didn’t have to drive a right-wing supporter.

Tuesday night sees the first debate between candidates Trump and Biden. Trump's tax returns appear to have been revealed, and many are in an uproar over the fact that he has paid fewer taxes than a restaurant server or grocery clerk. As colder weather is rolling for autumn, COVID-19 numbers have again begun to rise. The election is just over a month away. This next week could be a turning point in campaigns for the many Senate and House seats up for grabs. The hope is that the Democrats can keep control of the House, and turn control of the Senate.

    Election Year Lies About Healthcare

    Election Year Lies About Healthcare

    It's an election year and you will be probably hear it said, "If we elect/re-elect Xyz millions of Americans will lose their health insurance and die!!" This is being said because some politicians, notably Donald Trump want to do away with the "Affordable Care Act" (A.C.A). Why do they want to get rid of the A.C.A? The "Affordable Care Act", is a 2010 federal law signed into law by former President Barack Obama. This law requires insurance companies to cover every and all medical conditions and they cannot deny you based on pre-existing conditions. This law, as a result, is causing health insurance premiums to skyrocket. Even with the subsidies that A.C.A offers you based on income, this insurance is still too high for most. Do you want to pay $117 a month for $8,000 deductible? I didn't. That was the cheapest insurance I could get through A.C.A and it didn't pay a dime for my E.R visit back in 2016.

    Medicare For All: A Comprehensive Study

    Medicare For All: A Comprehensive Study

    Millions of Americans attend the doctors every year; however, hundreds of thousands go bankrupt each year due to medical bills, and the issue is only increasing causing concern. According to a recent AJPH study, the American Journal of Public Health which focuses on health policy and public health, states that there are around 530,000 bankruptcies due to medical bills annually. This leaves many Americans with great financial struggle which can often lead to decreased emotional well-being. In fact, according to a study from the University of Princeton, “High income improves evaluation of life but not emotional well-being” by Daniel Kahneman and Angus Deaton, states that money does not equal increased happiness, but less money is frequently associated with emotional pain. In recent years democratic politicians such as Bernie Sanders have proposed plans to expand healthcare to all, but faces a lot of opposition from both Democrats and Republicans and has been a recent subject of debate in the recent 2020 election cycle. So with many Americans facing issues with paying for medical bills, and thus an overall decrease in emotional wellbeing, how would Bernie Sanders’s policy of Medicare For All affect the United States? And what opposition does it face, and why?

Jenkins has removed 1400 people from Frederick County. But by his own admission and numbers, only 100 of the 1400 were suspected members of MS-13.

    There is a saying in some churches, that the spirit of the leader falls upon the people in the congregation. This premise seems to be holding true regarding the White House as well. Ever single day for four years, Donald Trump has unleashed anger, hatred, deception, and lies upon the American people. His rhetoric has been so effective that 71 million registered US voters cast a ballot for him to have a second term. Now some of them, along with the majority of the GOP members are agreeing with him that the election was stolen. This is ludicrous to a sound minded individual but those poisoned by Trump's vitriol believe it to be true.

    As of this writing, there still is no clear winner in the 2020 US Presidential election between Joe Biden and President Donald Trump. In the time since Wednesday, we've seen several scandals unfold, causing both sides to cry afoul. While one man will eventually become President, they will do so in a way which will be contested in the eyes of their detractors. The process itself has lost credibility in the eyes of both the right and the left, meaning that whatever happens in the White House, our democratic republic clearly is not the winner in this election. It is hopefully a low point in American history which will be fixed for future elections in the courts, but hey, after 2020, not to mention 4 years of vehemently disgusting mainstream media lies, most of us don't have a lot of hope left for happy endings.
