Of all the things that get your attention...

So Colin Kaepernick is in the news. Yeah, this happened a few days ago, and I am just now getting around to it. So, is he in the news for some kind of spectacular sporting achievement, nope. He is in the news because he refused to stand during the national anthem at a preseason football game. Oh lord the world is ending, and people are completely loosing their marbles over it.

Jill Stein and Student Debt Forgiveness.

So one thing I keep getting told about Jill Stein is that she wants to forgive all college debt. Hey, sign me up for that, man oh man, not having $90,000 worth of debt hanging over my head, killing my credit score, and at least a monthly phone call asking about paying more on my repayment plan would be sweet. It would mean that I could spend money elsewhere, like that awesome little Italian place that has the best pizza and food in the community, I'm sure they would love it if I went in there more than once a month.

First World Problems in Third World America...

You want to do your civic duty.  You go to the primary (or general election) and you vote.  Then you find out your vote didn't really matter, the election was decided before the first primary.

Angry Yet?

I am going to say some things that are going to make some of you very upset. Some of you will be happy about this, but most of you, most of you are going to be very unhappy. This is something you are going to need to hear, and you are going to need it learn this lesson now, or you are going to become very angry later. You are going to get your feelings hurt, you aren't going to understand why things aren't improving, and honestly, you are going to wonder why the next Bernie Sanders will lose in their bid for the nomination of the DNC. Sorry, while the DNC is in bad shape, nearly as bad of shape as the GOP, its not going to go down for the count, right now anyway.
