    New Developments In The Slave Trade

    Whether its dueling with an arch nemesis for the heart of a woman or highschool freshman hazing. No matter if its Chinese foot binding or the ritual slaughtering of any child born on a friday by the Anglo-Saxons; or even the Salem witch hunts. I'm sure most of us can agree that...

    Very Little Gray

    Not Only Standing Up For What Is Right.....

    but for who is right as well.  Sometimes it is just as hard to stand up for a person that is right, or for the rights of that person.

    We need more people to say "why the **** not"

    and get off their *** and get **** done. Who cares if people don't agree? Who cares it you stumble? Who cares if it's hard and long and difficult? Isn't it worth it? If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything.
