What Freedom Means

You wrap yourselves in our flag and call yourselves patriots…but that flag belongs to all of us…not just to you and your radicalized terrorist brethren.

And it was never meant to represent what you’ve appropriated it to symbolize.

Our flag symbolizes a free and democratic republic.

I cringe now whenever I see our flag because I know that most likely those that fly it align themselves with the republican treasonous cult that attempted to over throw our democracy.

Patriots of our democracy would not support murderous violence against their fellow citizens, elected officials and their own government because they lost an election.

We didn’t!  That’s democracy!

You don’t commit insurrection just because you didn’t get your way. That’s what fascist bullies do!

You are not patriots; conversely you are the very definition of treasonous and terrorist and should be dealt with accordingly.

RIP Unprecedented

Here lies Unprecedented.

He lived well a long life filled with love, laughter, and a shocking number of impressive firsts. Yes there was a smattering of inaugural blunders as well, but the good always outweighed the bad for Unprecedented until the year 2016; That’s when things took a turn for the worse. It began like most years, but as time wore on the reality he was witnessing began to take a toll on his health. His love affair with the news was shattered one soul crushing story at a time until finally he had to turn away in horror. He considered changing his name. Unprecedented used to be associated primarily with fundamentally good things. The onslaught of cardinal abhorrence left him ashamed and dismayed of the moniker he once donned with pride. By 2020 Unprecedented had experienced an alarming number of cardiac events leading up to the big one on January 6th 2021 that would finally take his life. Today we lay Unprecedented down for a much needed rest on a hill overlooking a sea of tranquil waters. In his honor we vow to vindicate his name by restoring the good that was once Unprecedented!

RIP Unprecedented.
