So on one side we have a lot of people saying stuff that boils down to “those people are animals and that’s why they can’t have nice things.” This attitude ignores the realities on the ground: no jobs, no economic development (because after all who would open a factory there?); a minimum wage that won’t get […]
I have nothing coherent to add. Well, except maybe this. In Closing: gluten; poverty and family planning; and lying rat bastards extend NSA’s mandate to Gather Everything.
This is probably my favorite full symphony composition of all time. And that’s saying something from a lady who loves her some Wolfgang Amadeus (yeah yeah and props to Ludwig Van). In Closing: some more NSA and privacy follies; student loans; crude; illustration of double standard; embarrassing coincidence; lost Sherlock Holmes story; malls have always been […]
It is the year 2035, and one court case is receiving a whole lot of attention: Average vs Doe. The facts of the case seem simple. Back in 2020 Joe Average got married to Mary Doe-Average. Just last year, Mary tragically succumbed to cervical cancer. Doctors were able to trace her cancer to Human Papilloma Virus. […]
Believe it or not, there are people who think President Obama is liberal. Isn’t that a good laugh? In Closing: miscarriage; I already said this; measles; and beavers…. with parachutes.

Today’s question: Do you have any good habits that were hard to start but you’re happy you worked to build them? Well yes, I have a lot of habits that were hard to start. For example, it was very hard to get started working out regularly. Sadly, it’s much more fun to hit the snooze […]
Today I’m actually using the official prompt: Have you ever tried to break a habit and failed? What made it so difficult to break? Ok, this is a weird one. I’m still not quite over this habit: I have a hard time passing up things that are cheap or free. I’ve got dozens of books on […]
In Closing: Reading about the people justifying torture can seem like they are torturing the truth; a few police brutality and racism items; common sense may not be common; TPP; she can’t be trusted to make a decision regarding having a baby, but she can somehow be trusted with a baby. Oh, and one last […]
In Closing: a few words on the disconnect between the economy as you know it and the economy as some others know it; banned in Vegas; a few words on the elections and what it means going forward (thanks, Doctor); walk in, walk out; she’s not pink, but she’s still blonde; showing up is […]
