Irresponsible musings of a self-important, self-proclaimed “intellectual”:
Not funny… even if supposedly a joke. And especially since there is spreading evidence that a violent reaction is actually being advocated.
Some not-so-subtle intimidation tactics? How about sending out some union thugs?
My choice in this election will be based on the demonstrated performance of the current […]

They say there’s at least a sliver of truth in every bit of comedy.
Can disasters “create” jobs? No, of course not. Disasters, by definition, cost. Little ones cost little, big ones cost big. Simple.
Given the nature of a hurricane, the damage done to a large geographic area, […]

We need to do MORE of this:
Not only is a valuable principle imparted, it is delivered quickly and in a fun manner. Here’s another example of a “little lesson”:
It seems that many people today, both young and old, have lost the ability to reason. Maybe it’s too much TV, smartphone, email/chat, IM’ing, texting, […]

I am absolutely TIRED of a good action being contorted into a wrongful act or presented with an unhelpful bias.
It is OBVIOUS to all that it is the political season and virtually any activity might come with a political spin. We’re all adults (right?), and we know the game that is being played (including […]

I’ve previously discussed how our country is actually based on the idea that, in the eyes of Gods, all of us are created equal and the political fact that this concept has been construed to mean we should enjoy things equally.
The utopian idea that everyone should have the same things sounds great… which makes it […]

The current government “leadership” has moved our country further away from its founding principles and seems intent on implementing programs that are even counter to human nature. All this done under the guise of helping the “little guy” or maintaining “equality” or implementing “social justice”… with little consideration of who actually gets to […]

I agree with many of the WISHES of liberals… there should be no poor people, everyone should have great health care, every individual deserves a job, all citizens should receive an education, and more. The world would be a wonderful place if all such things were possible… but they’re not. This is mostly […]

It is immoral for the government to “take from the rich” and “give to the poor”.
While any individual might donate some of their money, possessions, time, or talent to the betterment of others who have less, charity is a unilateral thing… it is at the complete option of the giver. It is, […]

Most politicians think us regular citizens are fools. They will tell us lies with a straight face and expect us to accept what they say as fact.
Disturbingly, the media no longer challenges such assertions…
Not so many years ago, the “fourth estate” could be counted on to dig deep and bring the truth […]

A single line from an excellent book, The 5000 Year Leap, has really made me think:
“The physical sciences capitalize on the lessons of the past, but the social sciences seldom do.”
We would never have the great technology tools and toys, the miraculous medicines, or the comfortable lifestyles that we do if we had to start […]
