Space for Rent: I Am Not Straight, I Am Heterosexual


  Tweet of the Day: A Handmaid’s Tale Is a Warning to Conservative Women     “I am a Christian.” Are not Lutherans, Roman Catholics, Mormons, Mennonites, Anglicans, Eastern Orthodox, and Quakers not Christians? Or are they not the “right” kind of Christian? Which means that those other denominations are “wrong” somehow. It is true […]

Space for Rent: Separating the Artist from their Art


Sometimes you can not separate one from the other so what are you suppose to do about it? I discuss my take on the situation below:  

Space for Rent: The Past is Prologue


  These words were not uttered by Steven Bannon, but the fact that the American media and public cowered in fear while they were uttered led to our current situation.

Space for Rent: The Antebellum Presidency


    Let’s be honest, Barack Obama will not be remembered as a great president of the United States. While some tout his accomplishments, outside of the expansion of health care he did little else but to moderate yet continue the policies of his predecessors.
