“Whether you think Christmas is shit or Christmas is the shit, when you are Catalan, your Christmas is going to be full of shit. And I mean literally. And no, it doesn’t get that dirty (usually).”

I’ve Become Radicalized

“America, and by that I mean the United States because America is much bigger and full of non-US residents, was never great, but these kids deserve to grow up in a place that’s less divisive, less stupid, less racist and sexist and homophobic. “

We Do Not Live in Nazi Germany

Two Sides of the Same Coin

“I would like for people to see that when you criticize a religion, you are talking about an idea, a concept. But if you extend your criticism to all religious people, then it’s discrimination.”

A Personal Retrospective on Voting

“I see this hope in the eyes of young Bernie supporters, and I am literally seeing the same things. They are saying the exact stuff I would say when I was all for Obama. They say this time it’s different. Sanders will make a change.”

1%

“Those who have the resources to change the world for the better don’t want to because they cannot profit from it. They don’t give a shit about your problems. They only invest in things that can produce benefits.”

The Case for Grandpa Bernie

“I am, indeed, a capitalist, but I consider myself a reasonable one. America is a capitalist nation, at it’s heart, but we have embraced socialistic tendencies and thought on numerous occasions before. Generally, it was all brought about by the great FDR and the even Greater Depression.”

“Did You Mean: Oppressive”

“I came across this news article talking about how Italian museums covered statues of nude women in order to avoid offending the president of Iran.

I’m sorry, but what is this shit?”

“Maybe the fact that we are reacting to the Paris attacks so viscerally, compared with Lebanon, Kenya and other parts of the world is not because these events are less significant, and in fact they are horrifyingly worse, but the reaction is because, as Americans we feel closer and more tied to Paris, just as one might react more emotionally to an accident involving a friend, family member or loved one, then a story only heard on the news involving strangers.”
