Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt

So I play in a rockband called “FUD,” which is an acronym for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. It is common in the cryptocurrency world, because FUD is the bulk of media representation that crypto gets. I’m familiar with fear, uncertainty, and doubt. I just saw something online, however, that made me fearful that humanity is getting the message, uncertain that people will ever understand their place in the universe, and doubtful that there is hope. It was this series of tweets: First, this person intended this to be a positive message. It could have been positive, right up until the third part, where Waldman says, “I’m

Election Mistakes

I want to preface this by pointing out that I’m not contesting the results of my election. For one, I don’t care to. I have better things to do with my time.

Election Reflection

It would be easy to be sad about the election results. For those who don’t follow me on Twitter, the election results are in, and I did not do very well. In fact, I probably did the worst of any major-party candidate in a two-way race throughout the United States. I’m not really upset by that; getting zero votes (beyond my own and my friends) was a realistic possibility. I am, after all, a transsexual anarchist and High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church. That is a whole lot of stuff about which the average voter may pause. I’m sure there were

It’s Decide Time!

It’s Election Day, for those who wish to engage in the exercise of futility that is voting. Personally, I am not a fan of voting. If it mattered, the powers that be wouldn’t let us do it. That’s generally my position, but it isn’t necessarily true in local elections, where the Powers That Be don’t exercise nearly as much control. Let’s be real for a moment, though. The two party system in the United States meticulously selects your candidates for you, and it’s why amazing stories like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s get so much attention–when we have someone who bypasses the party apparatuses to
