This Is Madness

***Just a quick little disclaimer – sometimes I use naughty words when I write. Proceed at your own risk, or leave.  I don’t care.***


Every once in a while, I wake up, not expecting to do any writing, then I start reading the news and that all goes to shit. Today was one of those days.

I began reading about the latest topics dividing our country when I ran across the hashtag #TexasTaliban. First, I thought “my god, the Taliban has come to Texas!”. Then I kept reading and thought “surely this must be a joke and can’t possibly be one of the top trending items in our world – especially on a platform like Facebook or Twitter that have been SO committed to eliminating hate speech”. But I was wrong…so wrong.
