From our healthcare system to our workplace, the US government is increasingly and irresponsibly making efforts at taking over control for managing our day to day lives.

At the same time, Americans have never been more disaffected with our politicians, than the group which is now responsible tor government gridlock.

Traveling road warriors


There is an artistic act of neatness in which we pack bags, then there are those cool apps downloaded to speed check-in, and the privileges we take for granted that make long distance travel easy, efficient, smooth, comfortable. Every time we leave home, we continually gain expertise about where to go to find the best foods and the finest places to enjoy, where locals prefer to go.
