There were over 28,000 Prince deaths last year.

America is being medicated into a stupor. Television is a drug of sorts but that’s another topic. Kids of all ages are being medicated, painkillers and psychotropics (anti-depressants, anti-psychotics) are promoted with the same abandon as fast food, Pokemon Go and lingerie. We have a War on Drugs which is a running joke, an FDA in the pockets of Big Pharma, a 15-year war in Afghanistan which revived its poppy production and the country is now responsible for 90% of the world’s heroin. In the U.S., addiction is skyrocketing, deaths by overdose are skyrocketing, abuse of prescription drugs is skyrocketing, Big Pharma profits are skyrocketing. Isn’t there something wrong with this picture? Continue reading

A Swan Dive Into The Abyss

America is being hollowed out from the inside, becoming a lacquered shell of an empire filled with the abscess of its steady self-impoverishment. It is a swan gracefully diving into the abyss of its own disintegration. On its current course, either greed will drag its demise out over decades, or nuclear war will make the finality instantaneous. Continue reading

Justin Bieber is the new Hitler!

If someone in the State Department or the White House decides that Justin Bieber’s music truly sucks, or even if they just take a disliking to that froofy, pseudo-pompadour hair style he alternates with his Beetle boy look, you can be assured of the headline the next day, front page of the New York Times: Justin Bieber is the new Hitler!
