Welcome to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

Russian police have been detaining, harassing, threatening to imprison journalists who have been reporting on Sochi.

Other Russian journalists haven't been so lucky. Twenty-eight journalist have been murdered in connection to their work since 2000.

As an exercise in self-reflection, I'm interested in how other people view me… describe me in three words.

"For this right wing minority hostage taking are all they have left. A last gasp of those who can not cope with the realities of our democracy. The time has come for those legislators who can not cope with the reality of our democracy to get out of the way, so that those of us in both parties who understand that the American people sent us here to work for them, can get back to work solving real problems faced by the American people. We have real work to do, and that is what we should be doing."

Tired of all these "I voted" posts. Well you know what? 

I DIDN'T VOTE. 

Seeing how I don't live in a place where my vote actually matters (thanks to an election process from the 1780s), nor would it matter anyway in our tightly controlled and unfair two party system... 

I don't bother voting for president. 

Luckily the federal government makes it pretty easy for me when house/senate voting is going on. I don't even get the option to vote in that case.

Where do I live? Washington, DC the capitol city, home of more US citizens than Wyoming. All who like me still live as if we were a colony.
