A Bizarre Thought: Taxes are Okay

Let’s get a few things out of the way before we get started:

  1. Government overreach is bad
  2. A government that grows too big, over taxes, or puts too much burden on the people rather than protecting their rights, is a problem

Now that we have those out of the way, let me get to the subject of this post. I think the title is absurd. It should be a given that taxes are okay. But more and more I see people who talk about how taxes are theft, or how the government shouldn’t be allowed to steal our money. I have a problem with that idea. And I feel I need to explain why.  Continue reading

State of the Union Address Aftermath, Minimum wage, and Why I Feel Depressed.

So… the other day that one Obama guy spoke about stuff. No big deal. Nobody really cared. Not based on my social media feeds. oh… except for everyone that wanted to remind the world that he’s a terrible, evil individual, that he’s harming the nation, that he wants to destroy America, Etc. well, at least nobody pulled out an Obama=Hitler reference. I guess I can look at that as a plus.

Is Materialism the Cure for Materialism?

I’m fond of shiny things. I like nice TV’s, fancy gadgets, fun toys, and anything that’s new. I suppose in a way I’m as materialistic as people come. I enjoy giving away shiny things as much as I enjoy receiving them, because I want other people to enjoy new stuff – It makes Christmas a blast on both sides of the coin!

The internal struggle: "I need new stuff now!!!! but do I really??? Yes!!!!"

U.S. Government antics, and How We Should React

So this post was supposed to occur during all that Government shutdown nonsense. I drafted it awhile ago, and I never finished writing it. I figured I would still edit and finish it, because even though our “Loyal” public servants are back at the office and the govt. is running (sort of) my thoughts still feel relevant: So here is my late response to Government stupidity

I said it over and over again: I’m not going to write about the shutdown. I’m just not going to do it! I just won’t! I just didn’t want to talk about it, because it seems everyone already has an opinion about this thing, and nobody (I’m serious: literally NOBODY) is interested in considering the other side’s version of the story. It’s so tiring watching people angrily butt heads together in a futile attempt to get everyone else to see their point of view. So I vowed to stay out. Until I couldn’t. Because some irritating, inexplicable force told me that my opinion would matter to someone… So here I am. Breaking another vow. I should be ashamed. Continue reading

Who took all my cash?

Well here goes my first post in the section of my blog meant for controversial subjects. this is where someone is bound to get hurt. But that is one of the main reasons I wanted to rant, so lets get started!

So Facebook is a great place to see some crazy stuff. People love posting Memes and fun stuff all the time. But some memes can also make some strange assertions. Like this one, that I saw on my news feed the other day: Continue reading
