Review of the Sumo Sultan
For the last couple of months we've been discussing getting furniture that did not leave a person feeling like a human pretzel in need of a chiropractor. Spending hours trying to find a replacement left me feeling like Goldie Locks. The vast majority of furniture was either too small, too hard, too flimsy or too overpriced. We came to the conclusion a bean bag chair would fit our needs perfectly. [ Read Full ]

Xenophobia Alive and Well at the 87th Academy Awards
The recent salary leak of Sony Pictures Entertainment demonstrated the inequality between gender and race; as fifteen of the seventeen executives appear to be Caucasian males. Wall Street banking is more diversified than a major film studio. It should be of little surprise that Hollywood itself is grappling with the lack of diversity, and white privilege dominated the 87th annual Oscars. [ Read Full ]

Modern Day Pioneer Woman
In the last 50 years prepackaged cleaning products have become the norm in the majority of households. Most cleaning products are infused with the scents of mountain breeze, after the rain, crisp linen and fresh. "Fresh" what? I am not sure, but Lysol has a product line dedicated to it, including the disinfectant aerosol can for the baby's room! Do you need to express yourself and discover new joys? Perhaps some fragrance boosters to "Stimulate your life and infuse your laundry with these soothing aromas." For all these wonderful and grand products we get to have toxic substances purposely added to our cleaning supplies. [ Read Full ]

Militarization of America's Police Force
While the debate is ongoing about the militarization of the police, the U.S.President has ordered a program review enabling law enforcement to purchase military equipment.

The Revolution is Coming
The death of Mike Brown has set off a revolution for change. People are tired of the injustice of racial inequality, police brutality and inept leadership. Peaceful protestors have had their civil and constitutional rights violated while facing down tanks, amoured SWAT trucks, assault and sniper rifles, dogs, rubber bullets and have been tear gassed on a daily basis. If the President of the United States of America publicly admonishes the police brutality, things must in dire straits. "There is no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests, or to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. And here, in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground. Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority." When the police threaten to shoot the main stream media, you know shit has spiraled out of control. [ Read Full ]

In the judicial system it is not uncommon to have incompetent lawyers and judges who think they are above the law. However, when they are in a courtroom flagrantly breaking the very laws they are sworn to uphold perhaps it is time to rethink who we want to make decisions over people's future. [ Read Full ]
