In contemporary times, solidarity has never been more important; the time to come together as a unified front against fascism and the rise of the right is now. That is the most important message of this piece on Trump and the alt-right tragedy.
Today's the day: the first day of the last days of our time on this planet – Trump's inauguration. I am joking, of course, but I honestly dare not say if it will be a joke in the end. Not with a madman at the helm of the world's "greatest" country.

I stand in solidarity with Belgium following the terror attacks which claimed over thirty lives this morning. The terror attacks in Brussels follow the recent terror attacks in Turkey and the Paris attacks late last year. Obviously, opinions will fly like bullets.
Conservatives truly do care about the needy. Except they only care about the "truly" needy, so not all those lazy poor people who work more than forty hours a week and still cannot make ends meet. Okay, so they do not really care about the needy. The heartless, irrational hatred conservatives have for poor people is truly disgusting, and it especially disturbing when it comes from people who themselves could be considered poor. They have essentially created a "no true poor person" fallacy, which says anyone who is poor can blame only themselves or the evil government which is trying to take everyone's money by taxing the top one percent a little bit more.
