What is Morality? Fact or Opinion?

What does it mean to be moral?  The topic of morality can easily be dissected from multiple view points among compassionate people of similar societal backgrounds.  Once the variables of divergent culture, religion, and personal circumstance get tossed into the equation the analysis of moral rights and wrongs will produce an infinite list of possible […]

Dear Old Media (CNBC)… Sincerely, The Ron Paul Faithful

Following the Republican debate last week CNBC placed a poll on their website asking visitors to cast their vote on which candidate they thought won the debate.  After a few hours Ron Paul had accumulated 75% of the votes.  CNBC promptly took down the poll and left an “Open Letter to the Ron Paul Faithful”  in its place.
We all […]

Abortion: There are Two Sides to Every Story

Abortion is one of the touchiest subjects of our time primarily due to widely varying beliefs concerning the exact moment at which “life” actually begins.   The pro-choice community agrees with the point of view that abortion helps prevent young children from being born into unhappy homes.  The pro-life supporters, however, would strongly disagree with this […]

Want a flashback of crappy 1990’s web design? Visit MySpace!

I think I’m one of the proud few who can honestly say: “I have never opened a MySpace account and I am darn proud of it!”  The web design and interface of an average MySpace user profile page is atrocious!  Everything that sucked about gaudy 1990’s web design is incorporated whole hardily into every facet of […]

What if Google DID Buy Yahoo?

Would Google buy Yahoo?  Could Google buy Yahoo?  Who really cares?  A better question is:  What would happen if Google did buy Yahoo, and how would it affect the end user?  I’ve seen so many bloggers and journalists dance around with the “Should Google”, “Could Google”, and “Would Google” questions.  I find this sort of pragmatic speculation to be […]

Blog Commenting Hack: Evaluate What IS Written

I have noticed a trend present in the comments section of blog postings across the blogosphere.  Blog commenters spend a great deal of time discussing what is NOT said, instead of constructively evaluating what IS said.  Based on the paradigm shift that Web 2.0 blogs have on the typical reader/writer roles, the reader gets the […]

Thank God it’s Friday… Oh God it’s Monday

I heard someone mutter the latter yesterday morning and it got me to thinking…  Does the general popularity of these phrases have anything to do with a society-wide deficiency of aspirations and lack of motivation?  Each phrase by itself seems innocent enough, but when placed next to one another it draws a bigger, darker picture […]

Popular Infidelity: We Are All To Blame

Sexual infidelity is widely regarded as one of the most dishonorable assaults against the sanctity of an intimate relationship.  Yet, we all seem to be mesmerized by it.  Infidelity makes a love story more intense, a song or poem more passionately tragic, and forms the foundation for which the immensely popular celebrity gossip industry firmly […]

Corporate America Asks Questions Without Wanting True Answers

Have you ever felt momentarily suspended in a complete void of productivity because someone just asked you a question that you knew they did not want an honest answer to? I am not referring to a situation where you are intentionally deceiving a loved one’s trust by hiding information that could emotionally hurt them. The […]

Our Justice System is An Illusion

Without descending into the depths of a lengthy narrative covering the vast insufficiencies of our social and legal justice systems, allow me to vent out some excess bitterness.
You are alone out there.  That’s the bottom line.  Nobody will be there to save you from your own stupidity.  Likewise, nobody will be there to save you […]
