I’m Coming Out… As a Flexitarian 0

I’m Coming Out… As a Flexitarian

So I’ve realized that when it comes to my daily chow down, I am actually a “flexitarian.” What the Hell is that? Like everyone else, I love complicated labels most people haven’t heard of that I get to explain the meaning of to people. Gives me a feeling of superiority. In my infallible understanding, Flexitarian is similar to semi-vegetarianism in that they consume meat very occasionally – usually 10-5% or less of their weekly food intake. In my case that applies to dairy products as well. Unfortunately it means that I can’t claim a moral high ground over other people...

The Role Government and Christianity In helping Others 0

The Role Government and Christianity In helping Others

This isn’t meant to be some sort of infallible essay. It is meant to be my personal reflection on the world I see around me.         Many people from every spectrum of politics constantly ponder and debate about the role of government in politics.  Now I suppose what each of us might believe that role entails depends on our worldviews. Most of us can agree their are many problems our society faces: Homelessness, corporations who get special tax breaks and subsidies that small businesses don’t,  a foreign policy that arguably encourages many people to hate America, income inequality in...

Detroit: ‘The Truth Hurts… Tough Shit’ 3

Detroit: ‘The Truth Hurts… Tough Shit’

In today’s society, people who tell it like it is are rare. Usually they don’t want to lose their jobs, have their reputation permanently tarnished, ect.   L Brooks Patterson, is apparently one of those rare people and he is taking some heat for it.  He made “controversial” comments – let the entertainment begin – about the city of Detroit.  In a recent interview with the New Yorker, he said the following: “Anytime I talk about Detroit, it will not be positive. Therefore, I’m called a Detroit basher,” he said. ”The truth hurts, you know? Tough s***.” He goes as far in...

Political Tweets gone nasty: Why? 0

Political Tweets gone nasty: Why?

In today’s political climate, opponents usually refer to other opponents as child-killing deviants, warmongers, radical extremists, terrorists, fascists, “likely would have supported Hitler”, bane of humanity,  ignorant fringe religious whackos, socialist communist scum, and tea bagging nazis. Unfortunately this political atmosphere proves to be as pervasive as ever.  Though I disagree with Ted Cruz on quite a bit, wishing for the death of his speechwriter’s children is just another example of the hatred that can consume people involved in politics. Later on Allan apologized and rightfully so. However in the internet age, something like this never expunges itself from your...

Offensive Humor Is Everyone’s Guilty Pleasure. 0

Offensive Humor Is Everyone’s Guilty Pleasure.

Have you ever heard a very offensive joke and then laughed maniacally and hysterically? Have you then said to yourself and/or those around you in a low voice, “Wow, that was really bad.” as if that would somehow cushion the reality of how bad the joke is?  Well, I certainly have, and I can guarantee that almost everyone has done the same. There is just something about those extremely offensive jokes that you can say online – reddit – and with your “friends” group that you can’t say in public places – like your job – because you may get...

Sworn In blows up. Damn. 0

Sworn In blows up. Damn.

Say what you want about Sworn In, but never have I seen a band in our scene blow up this quick and this fast. It was probably the tours and those fests that played a major part, but to give at least some credit where credit is due, there is not much out there that sounds like Sworn In.  They have nailed the “I’m really pissed and angry,” sound like no one else I’ve heard. I’ve been following Sworn In since the day they released their Cartharis EP.  Out of the musical ilk that was Buried By The Ocean, came...

MLK would have backed it? 0

MLK would have backed it?

“Obama: MLK would have backed “‘Obamacare’”, runs the headline on several news websites.  I get used to sifting through the usual anti-Obama headlines. I laugh at and enjoy the clever ones, shake my head at the name-calling ones, and attempt to find those rare somewhat impartial stories addressing the policy and thought of the POTUS.  This story, through a quick look at the Washington Times, hits my negative bone. Not specifically because Obama said it, but rather because of the statement implies; an appeal to a person to justify something, rather then the ideas.  I call this hero worship.  Our...

Libertarianism – An Ecological Consideration

This is an incredible examination of the environmental question through a libertarian lense. It’s a lot to take in so I will have to re-read this again in the near future.

I’m offended! The Rise of the Keyboard Warrior. 0

I’m offended! The Rise of the Keyboard Warrior.

These day’s it seems that no matter what you do, you are going to offend someone. Whether you eat a slice of pizza,  play GTA 5, listen to whatever music you prefer, say how much you like someone or a particular idea, someone is going to get offended. Well, I’m sure plenty of people, including myself, are sick and tired of it. We’ve walked on glass for so long -both out of the goodness of our hearts and because we care about our reputations and future employment – that we’ve fallen through the glass, cut our feet on it, and...
