10 Slam Poems Explaining why #notmypresident

We have all seen the protests, the news, the disgust, going around after the “election” of Donald Trump as president, which have done nothing to deter him and his administration from going against the majority of people, including constitutional rights and the court system. Unluckily, there are those out there who do not seem to comprehend why this is a bad idea for the “minorities” in the US. Hopefully these poems will show the experiences that those less privileged than us suffer through, and will continue to suffer through this racist, homophobic, sexist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, transphobic, et al administration from hell.

5 Reasons to See “Interstellar”

I’ve heard a lot of complaints about Interstellar. Everything from It takes forever to get to the “action”” to the minuscule details of an engineer having to explain things to another engineer, as well as my own complaint of the use of “love” as the main drive for many characters rather than the survival of the whole species.
