Donald Trump and the Historic American Social Compact

Graffiti - Street Art

People Hamsters

Shiny Pretty Things


Orwell was dead on the button, you know?  Describing a mass surveillance, mass hysteria media state, stratified and deified by strict obedience to an artificial political dogma. A yellow ribbon stuck on the back of the ole gov’ment minivan right next to the smiling stick figure family, lobbing cruise missiles into third-world countries most...
