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. For another, contesting the results wouldn’t really change anything, as I still lost pretty handily. The point of this is not that I was cheated, defrauded, or had the election stolen from me; none of that is the case. I lost to Rivera, and nothing is going to change that, and that’s fine. Instead, the point of this is to highlight a massive problem in the election system, and

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

5 Things I’ve Learned From This

The last six weeks or so have been extremely interesting, but I’m ready for the election so that, regardless of the results, I can at least move forward with a result. The biggest issue right now is having literally no idea what the voters of Cheshire County are going to do. I can’t help but notice that none of the Democrat houses that I drive past have Eli Rivera signs in the yard–they don’t have my signs, either, but even some Republicans who support me aren’t willing to put up my signs. It’s eerily similar to the 2016 presidential election, where Trump proved

Commit Heresy With Me

The state religion is powerful, isn’t it? Powerful enough that Our Moment PAC, which describes itself as being “committed to getting BIPOC and LGBTQ+ candidates into elected office” actually endorsed Democratic candidate Eli Rivera over me, the actual, literal LGBTQ+ candidate in the race. Although I have reached out to the PAC–as have at least two others–to find out why, there has been no response from them. However, we already know why, don’t we? They, like everyone else, don’t do their research. I hope the people who support Our Moment PAC understand that the PAC just declined to endorse a

Contagion, I Exhale You

I want to be angry. On Friday night, dozens to hundreds of my campaign signs vanished from around Cheshire County. The full scale of losses is still unknown, but I estimate that the theft cost me between $1000 and $1500 in signs. With Wells Fargo having closed my account (for reasons that have to do with Bitcoin, and not my campaign) and holding a substantial amount of money for another expected 30~ days, it’s difficult for me to reorder more. It’s not impossible, but difficult. So if you want to contribute to the campaign, the best place to do so is

A Challenger Appears

When I woke Monday morning, with a slate of interviews ahead of me, I found that I had a lot of messages. That has been going on for a few weeks, but these were actual personal messages, from friends and colleagues. They wanted to know, at 8:00 in the morning, if I’d seen the signs about writing in Earl Nelson. Although I have compelling reason to believe that the NHGOP and Cheshire County Republican Committee have conspired with Earl Nelson to do this (probably in violation of their bylaws, but I can’t be bothered to check), it’s only interesting to me for a

Republicans, Why Are You So Angry?

As rumors continue to reach me from various sources about a potential write-in campaign endorsed by the Cheshire County Republican Committee, I have to admit that my confusion only increases. I thought the GOP was the party of low taxes, small government, limited federal government, and the second amendment? You won’t find a candidate stronger in these positions than I am. You want low taxes? I want you to stop paying taxes. Use Monero or (at worst) Bitcoin. Don’t you want to be the one who chooses what you pay for? Don’t you want to stop funding Planned Parenthood? Then

Media & Hate Mail Roundup

First things first, huge shout out to Metal Injection, who not only put me in touch with the rock band Trivium, which ultimately led to some of their members endorsing me, but who also interviewed me last night: METAL INJECTION LIVECAST #586 – Joey Belladonna's Hair with special guest Aria DiMezzo It was an awesome discussion, and I’m humbled to see how much of the metal world is standing with me. I also did a show with Toward Anarchy, late one night last week. It was a recorded phone call, so the audio quality isn’t the best that you’re ever
