I defended my first doctoral dissertation in October 2004. It’s been 17 years, yet political theory still remains my first passion, first love. Nothing else gives me more happiness. Let it be said in my eulogy.

28 mass shootings in the 11 days since Uvalde. And nothing has been done. 2 days after peaceful protests in front of predator Brett Kavanaugh’s house, the Senate passed a law to increase security for his family.

Ultimately, it's about who is allowed to tell what story, who gets to name and define a people or thing outside of their own experience, who gets to claim the future.

Kipling spent 3 days in Myanmar. Ever. His writings helped shape the country in the British colonial imagination.

Ban assault rifles, not books. Regulate firearms, not women’s bodies. Protect kids, not lobbyists.

My kid is in 4th grade. Texas is where we lived until a year ago. No family, no community, no nation should live through such horror. It’s the callousness and greed of people in power that has brought us here. Shame on the GOP. Shame on everyone who supports the GOP on this.

Medicare for All. $15 minimum wage. Pro union legislation. Bold climate legislation. Cancelling student debt. Tuition-free public college. We control the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. It’s time to deliver solutions as big as the problems we face for the American people.

Growing up, I loved reading, but I hated 90% of the miserable books we read for class I get that they were classics, & that not every story needs to be happy, but I think those unhappy books contribute to lots of ppl graduating, believing they don't like to read

The system is set up in favor of corporations and Abbott's wealthy donors. I’ll reduce property taxes for families and small businesses by ensuring corporations finally pay what they owe.

Nation-states have criminalized solidarity and are rapidly criminalizing survival. Beware of anti-smuggling and anti-trafficking laws.
