Find the square root of negative one. This math problem presents an interesting phenomenon: imaginary numbers. There are numbers that fit into our system of mathematics, yet they lack traditional numerical values. Particularly, these are i and -i.

Todd Phillips’s shift from comedy to such a dark film is not an unheard-of move to make. However, through his most recent movie Joker, he seems to replicate some of the radicality of the square root of negative one.

Sleepy Joe Biden is coming for your guns. And this time, it’s not the typical “I’ll buy back your rifles and steal what you don’t turn over.” He’s going a step further, moving the Democrats in the direction of a new woke form of gun control: he’s coming after 3D-printable ghost gun code. This, however, is merely a pipe dream that would trample on the first, fourth, and second amendments of the Constitution.

The Ritual Sacrifice of Donald Trump

Trump Impeachment Sacrifice

Donald Trump may be on his presidential death-bed. Talks of impeachment following the Ukraine scandal lead many to believe the New York businessman is in his final days. Acid-wash the state of corruption. Hunt down those that look to foreign leaders to meddle in the American political process. We need pure, straightforward, old-fashioned democracy in the US. Or at least that’s what those who still have a degree of faith in the policial system say. However, Trump is nothing but a ritual sacrifice. Cutting out his heart on the altar of the holy democratic process would only serve to mask the hollow morality of Washington D.C.

The Michigan flavored vape ban is in full effect. Anyone residing in the state, regardless of age, can no longer buy electronic vape flavors other than tobacco. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer looks to protect children from these nicotine products at the expense of everyone else, especially those attempting to quit smoking. Over the weekend, I ran into Steve Johnson, the Republican state representative from the 72nd district of Michigan. He made clear that he is working against the governor to restore sensibility and liberty to this vape ban.

The Hong Kong protests rage on, but the media is mostly quiet. The slow demise of the territory’s liberty evades headlines for weeks on end. However, the situation only continues to heat up. Freedom is dying in Hong Kong, slowly but surely. The Chinese government speeds up the process with its deployment of 6,000-8,000 new troops.
