THE NUCLEARIZATION OF STUPIDITY

“Courage is often lack of insight, whereas cowardice in many cases is based on good information.” Peter Ustinov Stupidity is highly dangerous.  I can say with great assurance there have always been stupid people.  I also feel pretty confident saying there will always be stupid people.  The danger arises when idiocy becomes an epidemic. And …

REPARATIONS IS A TRAP

Imagine, your sitting in your car on a dark stormy night.  The rain is slamming against the windshield. You’ve pulled to the side of the road because you’ve had a blowout.  You’re ok. You reach for your cell phone to call for help, oh no. The cell phone is dead. Panic begins to set in. …

OK GOOGLE, TELL ME SOMETHING UPLIFTING ABOUT THE USA

People tell me that my writing is dark. Sometimes it is. I don’t live in a fairytale world. I take in information sometimes undesirable, I look at the data, and it informs and forms my reality.  Many of us, however, are trapped in a false reality. Part of the pain we are experiencing as a …

AOC, JEREMY RIFKIN, AND THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

If you follow politics, then you know Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but maybe you haven’t heard of Jeremy Rifkin.  Rifkin is an American author, theorist, advisor, and activist on subjects including economics, technology, and society.  Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is a page directly out of Rifkin’s book.

(WHITE) SUPREMACY WILL WIN.

Do I even have to talk about this?  Do you understand power at all? What about history?  Name a single point in history when evil white men have not been in charge?  I’ll wait? Anything?

WHO WILL BUILD YOUR MONUMENT?

Family is not the most important thing. It’s everything. Michael J. Fox When this life is all said and done, what’s left.  What will we leave behind when we go.

THIS IS DARK

THIS IS DARK -Did anybody read The Lorax? Who would have thought all the business education needed today was found in a fu*ki^g children’s book. How many MBA’s does it take to figure this out?

Buy a Cabin in the Woods

I like to call myself a minimalist, but I still have to buy things just like you. Saying your a minimalist is kind of like saying you are a Christian. People say it, as though it actually means something. Like it’s the key to the Holy City.  In practice, its something else entirely. So minimalism …

Oprah and “The Power of Now”

Iconic.  What else can you say?  You clicked into this post because of her name.  Power. You want power? Oh, you are a hippie? You are not concerned with power?  False. Even you want power over you. But that power over yourself is the same power that we all desire, even if you haven’t found your …

Qualified to Listen

I could give a damn about your qualifications!  Those are not my qualifications, because mainly I only have one.  Can you listen? If you can’t, then off with your head. Because what good is it?  If your ears don’t work, then neither does your brain, at least not optimally. Qualifications often represent barriers more so …
