Imagine a world where clicks equal dollars. Where likes and shares not only feed our egos, but also our children. A world where retweets and comments satisfy our inner desire to be accepted and liked, and pay our mortgages. Or do we live in that world already?

Mike Rylander With all the noise the recent CAA-signing of “Instagram star” Fat Jew made, or the continual noise other social media superstars make, or the spontaneous celebrity status that a good viral video can bestow on any schmuck with a cellphone and a YouTube account, there is a strong case to be made that

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent troops to the South Korean border and declared a ‘semi-state of war.’ This comes one day after the two countries reportedly exchanged artillery fire over South Korean propaganda.

Brigida Santos The conflict reportedly escalated Thursday when Kim Jong Un demanded that South Korea stop its activities of blasting anti-Pyongyang messages through loud speakers it had aimed at North Korea.  When the South didn’t comply, the Northern military reportedly fired at the speakers, violating a ceasefire agreement previously made between the two nations. The South fired back in response and then the dictator issued a strict warning:

Want to end gun violence? End guns. We treat guns like toys then can’t understand why they’re misused. It’s time to take the children’s toys away.

Alex Logan I learned more about politics from Jesse Ventura in the year I worked in the Off The Grid Command Center than I did in my preceding quarter century on Earth.  The Governor’s direct, no-bullshit approach to expressing himself and his opinions is a quality to be envied in any man, and I’ve agreed

The latest issue being addressed during the 2016 presidential race involves birthright citizenship. Children born in the US are currently given ‘citizen’ status even if their parents are illegal aliens.

Off The Grid GOP candidates like Donald Trump have introduced the idea of ending birthright citizenship and even revoking it for millions of people. What do you think? Should we stop giving children of illegal immigrants birthright citizenship? Answer the poll below and give us your thoughts in the comments.  Close

It’s time again to answer questions from you, my vigilant fans! Got a question for the Governor? Sound off at Ora.tv/OffTheGrid.

Off The Grid Patrick Bleaney asks: You have said for years that it doesn’t matter who the leader is because their allegiance is to the party (or gang). Why is Sanders different?

The country that put men on the moon failed to rescue people during a flood.

Jen Hobbs Millennials have little faith in the government, the media, and the American justice system. Anyone who remembers Hurricane Katrina and FEMA’s incompetence can understand why. This week marks ten years after Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. During the hurricane, a faulty levee system bucked and flooded 80 percent of New Orleans with water, leaving thousands of people without homes.  

U.S. tax revenues are at a record high. Over $2.67 trillion has come in so far this fiscal year, according to the latest Treasury Department report. The burden of who pays the bulk of U.S. taxes has shifted over time from companies to individuals.

Off The Grid Since corporations are individuals, why not have them pay an individual tax rate the same way people do? They want to be people? Let’s take it the whole route and make them people then. The point of the matter is that corporations are controlling the government and thus, are paying less. When

The Oath Keepers wanted to arm Ferguson locals to defend themselves against police brutality. Do you think the Oath Keepers are doing more harm than good when it comes to relations between protesters and police?

Jen Hobbs According to their website, the Oath Keepers are an organization comprised of “current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders,who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’” Their motto is “Not on our watch!” and they feel that as veterans, the

Three American friends on a European vacation and one local man overpowered a heavily-armed man in a crowded, high-speed train to Paris — all four were awarded France’s highest honor on Monday.

Off The Grid It’s phenomenal! I think they are exactly what people said they are: heroes. I believe they were smart enough and quick enough to do what needed to be done. I heard that one of them said something along the lines of, “I’m not going to just sit here and die.”That’s exactly correct.

Jeb Bush recently told Republicans in Iowa that he was “proud” of his brother’s tough stance on torture following the 9/11 attacks. To me, this is outrageous. This should disqualify Jeb Bush completely from being the commander in chief of our military as well as the President of the United States.

Off The Grid It is a crime to torture someone you have captured at war. That is a crime. There are no exceptions to a crime. On one hand Jeb Bush is saying: generally feeling, I don’t support torture… But I can see the point where there would be an occasional exception. No there isn’t.

Donald Trump’s immigration plan can be summed up like this: build a wall by “making” Mexico pay for it, militarize the border by tripling the number of border patrol officers, kick out all illegal immigrants and end birthright citizenship.

Off The Grid That policy turns us into East Berlin. I would simply ask this question: is it going to be like Area 51? Because when I went and visited Area 51, they had clear signs posted that if you cross this line lethal force can be use. I find that astounding. You could be
