About Amber Noel

Learning to survive the rabid streets of Los Angeles, Amber Noel looks to spread veganism across the world. A mountain lover by heart, Amber is trying to understand how she ended up living in LA. She is an avid photographer, jam maker, and beer lover, partaking in the creation of all three. When not writing behind a computer or typewriter, she enjoys debating politics, talking to her cats, and traveling. She has a bachelors degree in European History from San Francisco State University and uses that background as an eyepiece to filter through the noise of today's political and societal shortcomings.

How the GOP Created Obamacare

How the GOP Created Obamacare

With the next stages of the Affordable Healthcare Act being implemented and the GOP government shutdown in place, once again Republicans are fighting to repeal their much despised Obamacare.

What took a doctor and turned him into a revolutionary, a famous icon, and a so-called murderer? Who was this legend and why is he everywhere? Ernesto Guevara […]
