    Diversity

    One of the things that is great about this country is our ability to vote for the candidate of our choice. We are all entitled to our own beliefs. Most of us choose not to share those beliefs unless we are with like-minded individuals. Therefore, I find it intensely annoying when...

    Politics = Opinions

    Opinions are for everyone. I hate hypocrites who think what they like, yet dont want others to think what they like, due to their own views. Surely everything is acceptable if you are not hurting others? That would be involving them in your business. People are different. They...

    Like a Moth to a Clusterfuck Flame

    Yet again, Ralph Nader has thrown his loserish, if not idealistic hat into the proverbial presidential ring. How many forays into the race does this make? I'm pretty sure he's been running for the oval office since the Civil War, but who's counting? This begs my...

    But Its Power To Corrupt Demands Vigilance

    Who Pays For Your Freedom.

    The conservatives may be right on this one. Freedom is most definitely not free. It comes with a price tag in dollars and in lives of those who protect or fight to expand our freedoms.  My first idea of freedom, when I was young, was all about being able to do what I want every...
