    A Storm in a Yorkshire Teacup

    A Storm in a Yorkshire Teacup

    This week, on of my all-time favourite brands, Yorkshire Tea, were the innnocent victims of the twitter mob. This arose when the newly-appointed Conservative party chancellor, Rishi Sunak, tweeted a photo of himself making a cup of Yorkshire Tea in celebration of his promotion.

    Reason First: Legalize All Drugs Now

    Reason First: Legalize All Drugs Now

    America’s prisons swell with tens of thousands of drug related cases. Why is this? What role ought the government play in what substances are produced, distributed, sold, and consumed on the streets of the United States? Anthony “Geezy” Gonzalez recently broke free of the constraints of the legal system. As manager to the rap duo Clipse, he spent his time focusing on furthering their careers. That was until he was busted for running a multi-million-dollar drug ring for which he served eight and a half years behind the wall. His story is not unique. There are many nonviolent offenders or people who currently sit in prison who never started force against another human being. Now, what they were selling happens to be poison but what, besides setting an age limit on who can make and take these drugs, does the government have to do with regulating or prosecuting some adults who serve other adults? Geezy doesn’t appear bitter. With a salt and pepper beard and an extremely calm demeanor, he could be a college professor or a deacon to a church.

    To The Few

    To The Few

    The whole world is crumbling, wildlife is being wiped out in a matter of weeks. Animals all over the world are losing their homes because people like you need to make more money. Even though you have enough. You have more money than you could ever spend in 10 lifetimes. But you want more, so you tear down their homes, wipe out their numbers and make sure nothing good can ever grow there again.

    About Reparations

    About Reparations

    There’s only one thing we have in common and that one thing is reparations. There is so much to talk about when it comes to reparations and it’s very necessary. We can talk about reparations after I have received all of them. In my account. I’m am very glad I have my reparations. I could say that I am glad to have my reparations. That would only prove that I am glad to have my reparations. You are achieving a new phase of happiness now that you have your reparations. I mean we are all leveling up. So is Ciara. She been had her reparations. You see her over there dancing in the end zone with her husband Russel Crowe? They have a great future. Yes sir they dew. It rained yesterday, very suprising. A pleasant surprise. Like getting reparations. The future of reparations looks wonderful. Almost as wonderful as Mr. wonderful himself. You know who I’m talking about. Me. That’s right. Having your reparations means taking your power back. Take all of it back. Do not leave an ounce to be spent. Grab your reparations and you can do whatever you want with them. They are yours to keep. They are yours to spend and do whatever you please with them. You can lay them on the ground and roll over them with a dough roller if you want. After you are finished with that you can make pizza out of your reparations. Add some toppings too. I like a nice supreme pizza. I like my pizza like I like my reparations. Nice and supreme. What is your favorite type of pizza? I just had pizza last night. It was good too. The cashier didn’t even have to warm it up. It was already hot. Reparations should be high quality hot and ready. Little Caesars loves reparations and so do I. What are you going to do when you get your reparations? Most of us will most likely be eating pizza. Everyone loves pizza. Even vegans and vegetarians. They try to pretend like they do and they actually do. Well some of them. Not all of them. I can only speak for those in need of reparations. After all I am speaking for a lot of people. All of my personalities in fact. If you have friends that are the opposite color of you. Talk to them about reparations. Do it. Me and Shia Lebouf had this conversation where he was inviting me to attend this movie screening. They were asking about 90 plus dollars to attend. You think I went to that? The answer is no. He never mentioned that I would in fact be receiving more of my reparations by not attending. No thanks Even Stevens. I mean Shia labeouf. I love him he’s such a great actor. So am I. I will act like reparations are one of the most important topics in the world because they are. I want you to know that. Go get yours while they are on sale. Take what you get and invest in yourself. That’s what I am talking about. What are you talking about? I know. Reparations. I have a story for every time I am discriminated against. I’m going to write a story for every person out there giving me the side eye. You never look at me with the right eye. This is not about what you never do. It’s about what I need. I need reparations. I’m only posting this because I know you’ll read it. Do more than read it. Please share. Sharing is caring. Some people care and some people give reparations. Its your job to give me my reparations. You get paid on the amount of reparations I receive. You better work. I know I am. I work hard for mines. Don’t look at me like I don’t either. Don’t teach me how to speak. English is not even my native language. So I’d rather be speaking in Spanish. Comprende? I think you get the point.

    Election 2020 & The Not-So-Scary Socialists

    I am filled with a kind-of unrecognizable hope because Bernie Sanders is on a path to win the nomination of the Democratic Party.

    Reason First: Is There any Good in Supremacist Groups?

    Reason First: Is There any Good in Supremacist Groups?

    Does it matter if one’s skin color is a few shades lighter than someone else’s? What’s in their brain? What’s in their spirit, or consciousness? White supremacist groups in the state of New Jersey have been designated a higher threat level based on increased propaganda and the possibility for another incident like the shooting at the El Paso, Texas Walmart.
