The country Obama described last night is not the country we are living in. He said we have to be careful not to return to the policies of the past, which caused the housing bubble and the financial crisis, which is right—we can’t ‘return’ to those policies, because we never left them to begin with.… Read More The National Debt, Our Elephant in the Room
Dear Mainstream Media, I don’t know how to say this without hurting you, so I will just be straightforward. I AM LEAVING YOU. I can no longer stay in this relationship if you constantly lie to me. I know that it’s occasionally better to tell loved ones little white lies to spare feelings instead of… Read More Dear Mainstream Media…
I am not on here to defend either the Republican or Democratic Parties, because truth be known, I feel both parties deserve equal blame for the state of the union. I simply allude to the current administration’s actions and policies, both proposed and those already implemented, because it is what is of most relevance at… Read More Two Sides, Same Coin
‘We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.’ -Woodrow Wilson (1909) I feel that those words go… Read More Security or Freedom?
Do we define ourselves, or do we surrender our individual freedom to choose and remain relevant to labels, group ties, and party affiliations?

As… Read More The Drive to Procreate
‘When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.’ -Sinclair Lewis A friend of mine posted this highly astute quote earlier today and it certainly rings undeniably true, especially so in our country. Rule by the corporation has been the marker of our times, and the religious organization… Read More Fanaticism, Government, and Power
I’ve had an intuitive internal voice that’s sensed the economic downturn we still find ourselves in was carefully engineered some time ago, and the recent findings showing that the members of Congress were not only unaffected by it, but actually benefited financially from the collapse, only help to dissolve any doubt. It is no longer… Read More Corrupt Pestilence Lingers in Washington

The extent to which the abstract intrusive father figure peers its head into our affairs with its judgmental and ultimately divisive intent disturbs me, but the relative willingness with… Read More Authors, Not Characters
The truth is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is strictly targeted at protecting the rights of Wall Street and providing a lethal tool for the government, which which should never be granted to any person or faction.
