I’ve always had doubt about our educational system in the Good Ol’ United States. The fact that they call it the “Good Ol'” anything should be a hint. But the two kids I have that are still in school (one graduated from college already, thank you) have brought home some homework that is a bit outdated. It doesn’t worry me so much because they realize it. It just worries me that so many people won’t realize that.
I’m tired of the politics. Running a country shouldn’t really have anything to do with politics. For every problem, there is a solution. Probably multiple solutions. Pick the one that works best for the most people and use it. How hard can it be? That’s neither here nor there though.
There’s one word that people seem to get wrong all the damn time. Do an image search for it and you got lots of pretty text, a fish, Shrek, actor Tom Ellis on fire, three women in sports bras and one guy who looks like he might get it but there’s a mushroom cloud in the background so… no. Do you know what this magic and allegedly happy word is?
A little while ago, someone on Facebook posted a very dangerous video. It was from a priest of some indeterminable denomination and it contained a very errant message.
Here’s a conundrum that has eluded the concept of logic for centuries. Our government wants us to pay taxes. Fair enough. Otherwise they wouldn’t have any money. The government also wants us to figure out how much to pay them. We figure this out by having the government send us a W-2 form. Anyone else catch what’s wrong with this particular scenario?
A free press is a magnificent thing, but sometimes, I worry that the we (I can say being a member of said community – yes, I am.) might get in our own way sometimes. Picture this scenario. I can see it starting like this:
If god is all knowing and all watching, why do we have to dedicate so much time to letting him know that we know he’s watching and we… what? Appreciate it? But if he knows all, then doesn’t he know we’re appreciative of his works?
I’ve heard it called the “Original Sin,” but is it? Why exactly is “sex” a sin? It is, biologically speaking, the act of creating more humans. Having a deity that says procreation is a bad idea makes very little sense. If we didn’t do it, us lowly humans would die out and then there wouldn’t be anyone left to worship anyone, would there?
Apparently, it’s news that the Houston Astros are capable of watching television and telling their players about it. What a crime!
I’m going to let you know up front, this post is born out of my own ignorance. It concerns a subject that is sensitive to many people and, so you know, I’m on the side of the women on this one. I have no problem with the movement I am about to talk about, I would have been in favor of it if I were around when all this happened. I do not want it reversed. I would, however, like it to have a different name for the movement and it’s followers as the one it has makes remarkably little sense to me. The words in question, in my mind, are “Sufferage” and “Sufferagette.”
