What to avoid saying to a hijabi woman

Below are a list of things you should avoid saying to/asking a hijabi woman: Don’t you get hot in that thing, especially in the summer? I bet your hair would look gorgeous if you just let it out!

Free speech for the not-so-free

Free speech for the not-so-free

There’s been heated debate as to whether the Constitution should protect what people call “hate speech”. The Supreme Court currently holds that the right to free speech is not to be limited in any way. The argument is that once the government begins banning certain forms of speech, it could find any justification to curtail this basic American freedom. The end of […]

To my fellow Muslims: 2018 is our wake up call

To my fellow Muslims: 2018 is our wake up call

The Michigan primaries are looming close and I have one request for my fellow Muslims: Please vote! With all that’s on the line and with all that is happening in our country today, the last thing we need is for our community to sit out another election because we feel that our vote doesn’t matter. Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election by […]

“Democrat” Shri Thanedar’s claim that it was the bank that abused all those beagles and monkeys turns out to be a lie

Turns out, that […]

Investing in education starts with investing in our OWN education

Investing in education starts with investing in our OWN education

This is my 5,199th post at Eclectablog. That’s an astonishing sentence to me but it’s true. I have written so many posts that every once in a while I will Google something and find some of my own writing, an essay I had totally forgotten about. In essence, this blog has become a journal of what happens when a Democratic […]

Trump’s dismantling of the EPA continues apace, Scott Pruitt ready to outlaw critical science in the name of “transparency”

Trump’s dismantling of the EPA continues apace, Scott Pruitt ready to outlaw critical science in the name of “transparency”

After eight years of an anti-science Bush administration, science got a bit of a boost with the election of Barack Obama. Political cartoonist Tom Toles from The Washington Post commemorated the event with this spot-on comic: However, Republicans continued to push their anti-science ways, working to thwart the Obama administration’s efforts to combat climate change at every turn. Again, Tom […]

Michigan high school punk flies the racist flag of American traitors because his fee-fees got hurt

Poor li’l Cameron Myers. He’s an 18-year old white “country boy” from rural Auburn, Michigan. Seems this pathetic little punk got his fee-fees hurt when somebody stole the racist Confederate flag off the back of his truck in the school parking lot. When he whined about it to school administrators, they didn’t do anything about it. He called it an […]

What do you do when it all seems like too much to process? Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr knows.

What do you do when it all seems like too much to process? Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr knows.

At the end of January and again at the beginning of February, I spent ten days in the hospital. I took a bit of a break from my normal hyper-consumption of political news and, when I dipped my toe back in, I found that the fire hose of cacophony that I had been drinking from before my illness had only […]

I don’t want to hear about how outraged you are by the latest mass school shooting

Before I get started today, I’d like to thank our loyal readers for their patience as I have worked through a rather extended saga of diverticulitis. It started in late January and involved two stays in the hospital as well as an outpatient surgical procedure. It also featured me having a nearly-lethal anaphylactic allergic reaction after the installation of a […]

MSU must answer for putting money & celebrity over the safety of ALL of its students, not only victims of serial rapist Larry Nassar

MSU must answer for putting money & celebrity over the safety of ALL of its students, not only victims of serial rapist Larry Nassar

It doesn’t take much digging to understand why top officials at Michigan State University seem to be so willfully ignorant of the sexual violence being perpetrated against its students. All you have to do is look at the rhetoric coming from its Board of Trustees and a major donor. Joel Ferguson, the Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees made […]
