Dear Twitter, for the safety of this union, please take Donald Trump’s favorite toy away

Twitter is most dangerous play thing for the most dangerous child ever to be elected to his nation’s highest office. By Andrew J. Pridgen Twitter was a clever little idea that may go down in history as the communications tool that destroyed a country, if not the world. The shorthand social networking service was founded in March 2006 by a quartet of...

America the Miserable

Believe it or not, you make the choice to be unhappy, every day. By Andrew J. Pridgen Are you an unhappy person? Are you? That’s not an accusation, that’s a question. Think about it for a minute. Think about your day yesterday. Did you wake up feeling OK about stuff? Did you clear the sleep out of your eyes, heave a big...

The Fault In Our Stats

The pollsters got it wrong. Math did not predict the 2016 election. Nate Silver fell from grace. So how do we explain all that? Look no further than the mighty burrito. By Andrew J. Pridgen It did not take long this election season for me to figure out there was a fatal flaw in boy wonder Nate Silver’s once impenetrable...

I have HAD IT with LOSERS who want to PROTEST AMERICAN election results! Get a life LOSER!!!!

LOSER!!! By Andrew J. Pridgen Good Americans. I don’t know about you but I cannot understand why all these LOSERS could come out and say in protest of a DEMOCRATIC election. IT IS AN ATTACK ON OUR FREEDOMS! Or, more HARMFULLY, saying the Electoral College is A DISASTER after LOSING the elections. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/266038556504494082?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw For them to say that America is in “unprecedented trouble” is not...

The mistakes we made

I volunteered for Hillary and here are my takeaways. By Andrew J. Pridgen I was texting with my sister yesterday and she hit on something when she said with any tragedy you basically don't see it coming and are shocked, then devastated and then you begin to pick up the pieces. The problem with this is election is it’s not a...

It is time to not be nice

The white guy date rapist elite are now in charge and the country is being told to be quiet and roll over and take it...it’ll all be over soon. Nope. By Andrew J. Pridgen A couple days after the election and it is finally sinking in. The hangover is starting to feel like a permanent condition, something that may require...

Thank You, Secret Trump Supporter

...We never saw you coming. Written by Bridget Clerkin Togetherness. Unity. A shared consensus in faith. These are the final words of advice Barack Obama has used his pulpit to promote, at once a reminder of the civility we should strive for and an example of its importance in preserving our fragile morals. In the face of an electorate unified only in...

How do we get back up?

Democracy is on the mat. But we need to stand up, if not together than for one another. By Andrew J. Pridgen Like the majority of Americans, today I woke up with the worst hangover of my life. And I did not drink a drop last night. I have not felt this bad since the morning of 9/12/01. And I do not...

Good is now the minority in this country

Now What? By Andrew J. Pridgen Disbelief, sadness and shame. The world no longer sees us as a beacon of hope but as a threat. Hatred has won and we will pay for this in ways we cannot fathom today. America, for the first time in your 240-year history, you have created the planet's biggest threat from within. New York Times...

I’m with her because she’s with Joe

And that’s all there is. By Andrew J. Pridgen The last time I hung out with Joe, like really hung out, not just at a wedding or in Vegas or on a quick phone call, was when he came and visited me while I was living in Lake Tahoe. It was nine, maybe ten years ago now. Fuck. It’s been a decade....
