We finally find information that Chaz has been talking about for a while. The nation is separated and not only by our political views but our cultures that makes people see things differently.  We discover some things from Business insider about the 11 different nations within the United States that has certain views about how they live.  We debate the validity as well as some revelations about areas we haven't been to.

The team breaks off and debates about perception with cultural differences when it comes to voters.  The team breaks up about the NATO leaders roasting the president when he wasn’t there. Can we really rely on any of the democrats to show up strong enough to challenge Trump but in turn normalize the country to get back to normalcy. really?? Big up to E for giving us the blueprint for changing Georgia to Blue. Virginia!!!

The team drifts off into a sensitive subject about voters, people and citizens that wants to get their voices heard but unfortunately the democrats are following the old script of hitting the major cities (high population) and ignoring rural areas that helped to get Trump in office. lively discussion on where we should spend our time and effort. Or should we?

The team finishes up our discussion with immigration and how institutions have been hiding undertake guise of religion to take advantage of women as well as keep women in subordinate positions based on religious doctrine.  We go back historically with immigration to bring in perspective of what our country has done in the past as well as what our needs are for today.

The guys come back together to rant about the media not having the guts to ask the hard questions and why are they still fearful of their jobs at the Whitehouse?  We jump into the amazing pursuit by women to gain political office to make the changes instead of waiting for Change.

A long time lover of video games, comic art, and all things animated, I’ve dedicated my young artistic years to fine tuning my illustration muscles by way of freelancing. Over fifteen years later, I’m catching my stride and still ever growing in hopes of being a well rounded illustrator.
Stationed in Atlanta Ga, I spend most of my time toiling away late nights on everything from illustrating children’s books, comic art, to random character commissions and more. A proud father of two, I somehow manage to steal enough time to create loads of artwork and check homework. I’m excited about the direction my comic properties are heading in, and I look forward to creating more forms of visual entertainment and stories to enjoy
