So, Adam Nimoy has successfully crowdfunded a documentary about the Star Trek series Deep Space 9, "What We Left Behind." Read more.

War is not good for business. Read more.

Republicans in the house and senate are catching fire from the people in their districts and some of them are so upset about being told to do their job by the people who put them in office that they're accusing the people at their town hall meetings of being paid protesters. Read more.

On the topic of politics, how about those Syrian refugees? Contrary to popular belief, they're not actually a nameless army of brown-skinned invaders here to spread Sharia law. Believe it or not, but they'd actually rather go back to Syria. And speaking as an ex-pat American in Canada, I understand completely. Read more.

Do you ever get irritated about the expectations people put on you regarding how you should live or what you should be doing to be successful? Yeah. Me too. Read more.

Looking for political positions within Satanism? Look no further than animal rights. Read more.

Again with the politics? This time, people are casting spells against Donald Trump. Read more.

Even more politics? Yep: if you're a Satanist who embraces the role of the accuser and opposer who challenges the powerful and tears down that which may be destroyed by truth, then you should care deeply about the raft of states who are crafting laws to criminalize protest. Read more.

If I write my name totally backwards, then apparently my demon name is, "Sllub Semaj." Kinda cool. Might even sneak it into my Satanic rituals and see if anybody notices. What other demonic names can we conjure here today? Let's run the following people through a Satanic demon filter:
  • Donald Trump = P'murt D'lanod
  • Mike Pence = Ecnep Ekim
  • Alex Jones = Senoj Xela
  • Lady Gaga = Agag Ydal
  • Beyonce = Ec'noyeb
  • George Soros = Soros Egroeg
  • Barack Obama = Amabo K'carab
  • Pope Francis = Sicnarf Epop

Of all the things that I'm really bad at predicting in a reading, it's what job a person should do. For whatever reason, these questions seem to come in a flurry with several people all asking this question at once, and then nothing for a while. Which is fine with me, because honestly - every time I get this question, "What job should I do?," I want to say, "Well, what job do you want to do?," and then tell them to just go get it. Because life is like that: if you pick a goal and persistently work toward achieving it, you'll often get what you want. I'm not saying that anybody anywhere can get anything - that's just not the way the world is - but I am saying that you'll get a whole lot more in life when you TAKE IT instead of anxiously hoping for it to appear.

Strictly speaking, the 1st amendment exists to protect private citizens from censorship by by the government. When private citizens protest private citizens, that's called free speech. And while I adamantly oppose the violence wrought by protesters, I think that making a big complaint about the protesters without actually considering the implications of the person or message they're protesting is a bit short-sighted. If you don't know why people are exercising their freedom of speech to protest against the message Milo wanted to bring to UC Berkeley, then you're not even seeing a third of what's happening here.
