Hey TSA! My Nipples Are NOT Weapons of Mass Destruction!

Hey TSA! My Nipples Are NOT Weapons of Mass Destruction!

In 2013 America, the airport should be the last place I would expect to be sexually assaulted. But I was, and it happens every day. What’s worse is the perpetrators almost always go unchecked and unpunished. How do these violations can take place in public? Easy, these heinous acts are being performed by TSA agents, […]

THE WAR ISN’T OVER: Uncounted Casualties- The Drug War’s Hidden Collateral Damage

PHOTO: Arohasilouettes, Etsy.com. Good news. A dear friend of mine, who prefers to remain anonymous, just got word from her doctor that she is cancer-free, which is a rather astonishing fact given that 18 months ago she was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer and told her survival odds were less than 10%. Even more […]

Crooked Judges Want Your Kids for Cash

Edward “Ed” Kenzakoski was a strong guy. He was an all-star wrestler going into his senior year at James M. Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre, PA and was actively scouted since 9th grade.

Mom’s Crazy Cake Recipe Just Got Crazier! (VEGAN)

When I was a kid, my Mom used to make this cake for weekend desserts between paydays.  It is easy to make and requires ingredients generally already available from the pantry.  We had no idea at the time that it was vegan, and we sure didn’t care one way or the other. My Mom passed […]

I’m So Angry!

I’m So Angry!

I’m angry. Not at you. Well, maybe it is at you. But it’s not just you. It’s everything. I believe that everyone has a default emotion. Some people are naturally happy.
