I awoke this morning with a tremendous pressure on my brain. It was as though something needed to escape… an embolism of good intent swelling against my better judgement. It was insight that had to be shared. It was a Chronic Advice Fart.
The Republican National Convention is about to start and there’s a storm a’brewin’. Yes friends, God is pissed and she ain’t gonna take it anymore.
Our current healthcare system is not a system and it’s not about caring for anyone’s health. It’s about CEO bonuses, stockholder dividends, and return on investment. Our healthcare system is a cluster-fuck. It’s a cluster-fuck system that bankrupts many of the middle class.

More than half of the population of the USA believe in the existence of life outside of our little blue marble.

Our country was founded by people who were fleeing England because they chose not to follow a state religion. Santorum’s views and politics will make Christianity our new state religion. Not just any Christianity but Santorumanity, Rick’s view of Christianity. There are too many versions of Christianity to count in this country and each thinks it’s “THE ONE”. Rick Santorum is sure that his is the right one. When he has the ability to sway secular laws to enforce religious views, your flavor of Christianity might not win. Sound familiar? That’s how theocracies work.
