Live-feed from ‘How To Stop the Empire’

This being the first day of the Trump presidency, it seemed as auspicious a time as any to premiere my latest iteration of my one-man play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB–THE PRESIDENT TRUMP EDITION. I was unable to book a gig today, January 20th, because, well, I have a sort […]

Off the 2016 employment cliff

  This has been a tremendously hard few months for me.  I don’t want to overshare, but unemployment has been at the center of many, many conversations, with family and friends having hit the bricks this year.

Trump on rigged elections–Crazy?

I definitely do not think he deserves to be president (though I don’t think Clinton does, either–read this). Both of these ‘human hairballs’ are facing indictment for crimes that could rise to the level of impeachable offenses. […]

How to Stop the Empire in your living room!
