The Strength and Endurance to Overcome

11 November, 2015 (15:17) | Politics, Social Commentary | No comments

Image by Justablink Friends and brothers in arms, Every morning, I wake up to a plethora of news about the wrongs in the world. The weight often seems overwhelming. What can we individuals do to contribute to fixings the ills of the world? The editorial page is rife with the words of concerned citizens calling […]

Egalite

17 June, 2015 (08:56) | Philosophy, Politics, Social Commentary | No comments

It seems so easy for me to recognize inequality. I glare at it, letting it foment in my self-righteousness, until such a point that it’s out of sight or I explode. I’m not alone in this. There isn’t that pause of, “Hmm, ok, now what?” The formula is simply See it, Get angry, Act; a […]

The Impurity of Sport

13 October, 2014 (07:52) | Media, Politics, Social Commentary, Sports | 3 comments

Last Spring, I quit football. To be honest, I quit caring about professional sports altogether. I decided I had better and more productive ways to use my time than researching, watching, and discussing institutions that provide me no benefit besides easy conversation fodder. It wasn’t until the third week of the NFL season that someone […]

A Flood of Insecurity

23 August, 2013 (11:30) | Politics, Social Commentary, Technology | 2 comments

They’re listening. Snowden says so. Public records say so. Government bills say so. Respected journalistic sources say so. They are government agencies, places of employ, private firms collecting marketing data. The Internet is a virtual Cookie Monster, and there’s little to nothing we can do about it. I express my anger and outrage with a […]

Statistics, Fact Checking, and the Failure of the Media

4 October, 2012 (11:41) | Media, New Media, Politics | 2 comments

Cartoon drawn by Patrick Chappatte published by the New York Times. The web is atwitter with the sound of politics this morning, and while I’m loathe to add my voice to flood of information, let me assure you that I will not be spending any time┬ádiscussing┬áthe candidates or their campaigns. Instead, I want to draw […]

Classify This

Snagged from CBS. In the midst of the Wikileaks controversy, founder Julian Assange is under assault by international governments everywhere. Yesterday, Interpol issued a warrant for his arrest for sex crimes in Sweden. With the flurry of news regarding Wikileaks, it’s not hard to believe Assange’s claims of being unfairly targeted. Wired reports that the […]

Who Foots The Bill

“Financial Jihad” from RedPlanetCartoons.com. Ars Technica reports that copyright advocates in the UK received a boon earlier this year: Internet Service Providers will be required to pay 25% of the costs when one of their customers is accused of copyright infringement. Admittedly, this isn’t exactly like paying 25% of the fine, but it still puts […]

A More Perfect Union

Vehicular Genocide

Late last week, the House of Representatives announced they were seeking additional funding for the Cash for Clunkers program. The program, which allocated 1 billion dollars in subsidies and government assistance to those trading older, less fuel efficient cars for newer models with better gas mileage, will shut down Tuesday without new funding despite being […]

Fostering Economic Growth

12 March, 2009 (09:33) | Politics | 3 comments

The economy will fix itself eventually. It’s a foregone conclusion. How long it will take, however, isn’t clear. In my eyes, there’s one way that President Barack Obama and the current government can create jobs, cut costs, earn money and give the economy a major boost in one easy move: Legalize marijuana. Those of you […]
