It’s time Capitalism rewarded the one thing that truly matters: your afflictions
My grandfather died fighting the Nazis in World War II. My family and I escaped the Soviet Union because of religious persecution. So imagine how thrilled I was to see ‘alt-right’ white nationalists playing ‘Sieg-Heil-to-the-Chief’ in D.C. this week. I’m not sure what’s more disturbing – this re-packaged neo-Nazi insurgence or our incoming President’s tacit
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!! HURRY!!!!

Random Thoughts from 08-11-16 1. Why Trevor Noah Makes Me Sad Just watched a Trevor Noah clip from The Daily Show. He’s a talented, funny, likable guy, but in the wrong job. He’s been cornered into doing a Jon Stewart impression, talking about issues he’s neither expert in or passionate about – and it shows.
Hillary Clinton is like broccoli. You know it’s probably good for you, but you really crave Cheetos. She made her big pitch to America last night. I’d rate it at 1/3 Obamas. (Let’s face it, he’s a natural.) But compared to Donald Trump’s Hunger Games last week in Cleveland, Hillary made it clear there’s only one major-party candidate not
