Excuse Me…

Can we stop believing in the Mexican Illegal Immigrant Bogeyman, please? It’s a load of nonsense. Just stop. Very few illegal immigrants come to this country. It is down 47% since 2007. Most of those who are coming don’t come through the Mexican border, it is a flat out lie. The people showing up at … More Excuse Me…

A Line Must Be Drawn

We are at a crossroads as a country. This isn’t politics, this is America’s very soul.   We are locking up children.

Rey is Still a Skywalker

Yep. You heard that right, Rey is a Skywalker and I won’t disbelieve that unless JJ’s upcoming Star Wars IX declares it in no uncertain terms, and I’m not talking about information from Kylo. In TLJ (and seriously, if you haven’t seen TLJ yet I don’t care) Kylo tells Rey that she comes from “nobodies,” … More Rey is Still a Skywalker
