The gap that grows
Between our lives
The gap our parents
Stop those thoughts
Control your mind
Replace the things
That you despise
Oh you're old
I hear you say
It doesn't mean
That I don't care
I DONT BELIEVE IN IT ANYMORE
PATHETIC ACTS FOR A WORTHLESS CAUSE
The world is full
They're just like you
And just like me
But as people
We have a choice
To end the void
With all its force
So don't forget
Or don't pretend
It's all the same now
In the end
IT WAS SET IN A DIFFERENT LIFE
DESTROYS MY DAYS AND HAUNTS MY NIGHTS
~ Manic Street Preachers
He puffs his chest
Like an exaggerated pigeon
Like he owns the place
But his words and actions
Show us all
That he's just playing
A wicked game
Of 'my dad is better than yours'
Where there will be no winners
Just more division
As the cracks between us widen
And malevolence engulfs us.
I'll trust a billionaire that becomes a politician before I'll trust a politician that becomes a billionaire.
I've never been in America.
I know only a few Americans personally.
Yet America has shaped me and I'm not just talking about clothes, music and hot dogs ... but also moral in a sense. America is or was the leader of the Western World, to which Europe counts as well. America was a special country for me as a child and even today America is a special country for me. But above all the country which sets the tone in and for the Western world. And that was OK too. Whether a Democrat or a Republican ... There was a basic basis and a moderate approach was taken. 10 years ago, we would have laughed at anyone who told us that the heads of state would declare war on other nations via social m...
Are not leading
They line their own pockets
And the pockets
Of multi national corporations
They are not making
We must fight to protect
The vulnerable amongst us
We must fight
To protect the environment
There is something wrong
With the leadership we have

I have been thinking for a way to explain the chaos that is going around my head, the thumping of my heart, my eyes wide with rage, my body stiff with disbelief, my breathing hard & heavy with anger, being startled awake in the middle of the night with fear, & exhausted with dread every day.
This is what my life has become since November because I knew what was ahead for this country with this man as the president (He doesn't even deserve that title).
With the GOP in control, women like myself have had to fight like hell more than ever before. I look in the mirror and I don't even recognize myself. Emotionally I am WAAAAYYYY beyond drained, I don't know why I even wake up in t...
“A Democracy or A Mobocracy”
“The heart of democracy lies in the Majoritarian rule or the people,
but it is not a mere game of dominant numbers.
The Majority can rule and rule effectively only if its judgement is an informed one. With an informed electorate, a healthy collision of ideas is assured that will generate sparks to fan the flames of democracy.”
“Rule by the ignorant is a sham democracy. A mobocracy, for a nation cannot be free yet ignorant.”
“If there is anything a democracy cannot survive, it is the virus of ignorance.”

Triggering day on social media. People being inconsiderate about the Autistic community asking to stop supporting “light it up blue” because it’s a shady charity for Autism & allistics are pushing back HARD instead of just listening to those in the Autistic community! Moms thinking they know better because their sons are autistic. Look, if a community of people are saying something is offensive & you aren’t part of that community, LISTEN.
Also, Joe Biden is a giant perv, and my aunt (the one I liked though I seem to be liking less & less) was upset at the “timing” of two women coming forward about inappropriate touching. She said report it right away if it matters so much which is incredibl...
It’s been a while, I don’t know why I’ve stopped writing here but I’m definitely going to start it back up. Things have been improving a bit financially: I was finally approved for disability! After fighting for 5 years through many denials. I am so shocked & happy. Though there is an issue with SSI & my backpay & Trumo is trying to cut benefits, still... it’ll be such a huge help.
I’m not going to lie, politics here in the US are scaring me: the clean water act has been reversed so corporations can have looser restrictions on dumping chemical waste in our waterways. With my gene mutation I already detox 10% the rate of a normal person which is why even fluoride & regular deodorant (aluminum...
I'm not sure if this is a recent trend, or something that's been going on for decades, but I've noticed something alarming. People are outright refusing to believe facts if they conflict with their position/world view. I'm not sure if this is some sort of macabre trend or maybe they're just getting more attention now... Either way, I believe its spreading like a plague and I'm concerned about the ramifications.
Politics is becoming ever more polarized, and has been for the last decade or more. Instead of working in tandem with people from different places or those with differing opinions, people have started to isolate to their own groups. A hundred ye...
"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
We the people of the United States of America...
Think Trump is an idiot. Our voting process is well overdue for an overhaul. The majority did NOT vote for him.
Hillary Clinton was not a better option. I did not vote for either of them...most Americans are stubborn and would rather complain about “the two party system” than promote and vote for a third party, of which there are a number of options. But I did use my vote! Which is more than many who are capable of voting can say themselves, who would also rather complain about things.
A regime has a criticle journalist murdered. After 2 weeks of alleged ignorance. Collecting and examining evidence. Come a story that could not be more dubious. And all states, whether in Europe or America. Would like to say more explination about the case but in the same sentence they make clear
"the business will continue."
And probably it's better that way ... the world is so fucked up.
What happened to this man is terrible. Only more Terrible is just how the world handles it .....
the show must go on.

My mother is half Palestinian, half Dutch. My father, French and absent without leave. Me, I'm British, born in London, and growing up I always felt as if I belonged everywhere and nowhere. As I have gotten a little older however, I appreciate the rich history that life had provided me.
Currently I am working on a script for a short film about my grandmother, who was smuggled out of Palestine when she was about my age. Her outspoken political views as a student meant that her freedom was in danger, and maybe worse.
So tonight is going to be a long sleepless night of editing, fueled by redbull and pizza, with much head scratching. 🌺
I have never known how to rant but there are a lot of corrupt people around that doesn't deserve where they are at, what they hold on to as a title, how they manipulate the variables and throw all the struggles to people who deserve to harvest the fruits of their labours rather than waking up each day carrying the heavy loads in their shoulders.
It is NOT easy. Maybe, it will never be. No matter how intelligent a professional is. No matter how strong an individual is. No matter how considerate a son or a daughter is.
Truth is, we live in a world of SURVIVAL. A world where there is no bigger truth than witnessing all the corrupt practices and lies, swallowing them, living with them. Thus,...
If I wake up in morning with magical skill of listening thoughts of people,
First I will declare to the media about my skill and prove it to them by reading their thoughts. Which will make it viral that I have that power to listen what people are thinking in reality.
Then I would listen thoughts of all politicians in the world and reveal their back stage truth to the world, because world has suffered a lot due to getting caught in dual face personality of politicians. Preaching something else which is lucrative to masses and executing something else which silently destroy the moral rights of masses.
The struggle is real
Coworker: Angie.. I'm depressed.
Me: Congratulations! Same here.
Coworker: Are these people mad or are we mad?
Me: Let's assume we are mad because that's what they must be thinking too.
Coworker: hahaha. You are a limit!
Me: Is there anything we can do about it? We have to work. No other alternative. It's the same shit everywhere you go.
Coworker: Most of them don't understand what I talk.
Me: hahaha. I know. "You telling telling.. they not understanding"
Coworker: hahaha was that English?
Me: No. It was gibberish.
Me: Working with these nuts requires abundance of patience.
Coworker: And that idiot.. he doesn't understand anything I t...
