Who Really is ‘Presidential’? Thoughts Ahead of Tonight’s Debate – #Election2016

Bernie Sanders was not presidential [sadly to say – despite many of his ideals being great – if not the best compared to his counterparts]. That is something the American people are struggling to grasp – especially the youth. What is – ‘presidential’? Donald Trump – is not presidential. But for reasons different than Bernie.Continue reading “Who Really is ‘Presidential’? Thoughts Ahead of Tonight’s Debate – #Election2016”

Dani al-Armani

This image really captures my identity. I do think it visually symbolizes who I am – half Armenian half Arab – Syrian. My heritage includes Palestinian, Italian too. Perhaps there is more European blood from my father’s side – but nonetheless, that side of my family is vehemently Armenian. About as homogeneously Armenian as theContinue reading “Dani al-Armani”

PSA: Danny K!

Dear world: I’ve decided to rebrand as Danny K, my original title. I do this for my Creator, for my family, and for my home countries, Syria & Armenia [The Middle East at large – Falastin], for my grandfather’s legacy of ingenious, and finally, perhaps selfishly, for myself. From now on you can follow meContinue reading “PSA: Danny K!”

This Glass Design

Poetry is dead in a world with no head, A world with one body that plucks at its bread, A hunger or thirst, no intellect to quench, Terrorizing the world while we sit from the bench, Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, Or are we foolishly tracing the fence, All along aContinue reading “This Glass Design”

Public servicesContinue reading “Reading the Trump Card”

Blind Populism – 2016

The Democrat-Republican, left-right, Atheist-Cleric dichotomy is a farce. Political elites know human beings are more inclined to “defend” something than to attack it. So they create a delusion of competition between theories, such as atheism and religion, which appear to be opposite, and lets say, communism and libertarianism, or democracy and republicanism, so as toContinue reading “Blind Populism – 2016”

Nothing New – American hypocrisy at GOP Debates

Pretty sure more democrats have lived pay-check to pay-check than Republicans. On immigration, Rubio cannot backpedal. His family came here illegally. His father worked illegally. Speaking in vague nationalistic sensationalist terminology is a strategy, not a victory. Pointing out realities without solutions is worthless. What does Marco Rubio know about American complicity in propping up non-democraticContinue reading “Nothing New – American hypocrisy at GOP Debates”
