But the cage is the one thing that’s guaranteed to be there.

When a routine political event is now treated by the common people as an incoming disaster, you know there’s something seriously wrong with the country: The DC area is not the only location reported to be preparing like this, either. This is actually pretty sad – it’s the first time in my life when I … More Disaster Preparedness
A pretty poignant parable on what’s happening on a societal level in the United States nowadays: A black man with a knife was shot by the police last night in Philadelphia.
