New Leaves

As with bits of packing tape that get stuck to the roll when you're trying to peel a new piece, or like sheets of resin-coated photo paper glued together by humidity, my attempts at turning over a new leaf are always weighed down and made messy by remnants of pages I've failed to flip completely in the past. It's nearly impossible to remove what's left of the old layers without tearing what's underneath.

Fuck MSNBC

To Those Considering Staying Home in November out of "Principle"...

Okay, Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Radicals, Socialists, Independents, Leftists, Centrists, Libertarians, Anarchists, Pragmatists, Pacifists, Punks, Faeries, Queers, Humanists, etc...

David Duke and Jean-Marie Le Pen have both endorsed Trump. If you stay home in November, or if you don't vote on the national line, you're supporting Duke and Le Pen, the KKK and the National Front. Your principled stance will empower nativism and fascism.

Sometimes, choosing the "lesser of two evils" is crucial. Sometimes, voting "no!" is the most important thing you can do.
