Why can't we all just get along? Well, we can, and we have in the past but currently a few patriarchal authoritarians won't sleep until they control everyone.

The world today isn't divided into right and left; it's divided into winners and losers.

Despite the consternation, I'll bet most of us can agree on some key issues pegging our stress meter.

The following seem headed for the stratosphere along with our anger and frustration: the cost of housing, education, medical care, money in politics, the wages of multinational CEOs and carbon monoxide.

If you haven't noticed, the one percenters have the rest of us on a slippery slope that's greased with stagnant income. Think “tax reform” and “trickle down.”

I don't look for things to change until America has a Bastille Day, or another Kent State, or Sterling Hall, or a few more Fergusons. I'm not advocating nastiness, just acquainting a few folks with human nature.

In place of an apocalypse, I'll hope Harvey Weinstein is the catalyst for a matriarchal world.

Call me a dreamer, but testosterone is going to get us all killed.
