Evangelical Christians and why we need them.
So I had a thought. Evangelical Christians, it’s not that they aren’t smart, or analytical or don’t read. It’s that they only read and analyze obsessively ONE THING, the bible. They have very keen, strict interpretations of the bible as well. Furthermore they are extremely disciplined in their studies of it. Can you imagine what would happen if that focus was...
The Occupy Wall Street Movement
I have to speak briefly in the defense of some of the uncertain press that has come out with relation to Occupy Wall Street. This isn’t a defense saying they are accurate in their portrayals.

The term “grammar-nazi” is grammatically incorrect because it refers to people who correct more than just grammar.
CEO's in heaven.
I can just imagine everyone on the planet dying and going to hell for not being more responsible with the Earth. The wealthy CEO’s though die and go to heaven, because God has an incurable need for blue jeans, beer, and a bank account.

What might need to happen to our economy.
So I had a depressing realization today based on two things: The first, Noam Chomsky’s assertion that since the early 20’s the winning candidate in most elections has been the one who spent the most. The second: people have to feel personal pain before they take action to save an economy. For the sake of elaboration on this I will use the example of FDR’s candidacy for the...
The Stock Market, and what we don't understand.
Let’s examine Wall Street. I’m not referring to the recent protests there, I’m referring to the effect which the Stock Market has on the overall economy. I want to say now that it is a little scary that it does in fact have the effect it can. The stock market does not actually contribute any money to the economy at all. It is just money which is ALREADY IN THE ECONOMY, being...
They used to say that the worst thing to happen to the ruling classes was that the commoners learned to read. Now that worst thing is worldwide internet access.
