• Welcome to My WordPress Site

    This site began as a place for me to talk about the projects I was working on for an art class I took a while ago at Metropolitan State College in Denver, CO. I've decided to keep the posts related to that content here, but they will fall down the list over time.

Canary in a Coal Mine

Here is a compilation of some posts on the topic of collective vs. individual thought, and how the struggle between them is tearing us apart, that I made on the site Peakoil.com.   I think that the meme of unionization is an important one working its way through American Society. Many people see labor unions … Continue reading

The High Cost of Selfishness in Society

I’ve just gotten home from work. Something happened tonight on the way home that upset me. I was driving along my city’s main north/south highway when I saw a car on the shoulder that was jacked up. It had a flat tire, I guess. Anyway, as I was driving by in one of the middle … Continue reading

Personal Space vs. Public Sphere

I just read about some person who was upset that their dog died after it was stuffed into an overhead bin on an airplane, in its cage, I guess. I have to ask, what did they expect would happen when they tried to take an animal on a plane? Was it going to get a … Continue reading

School Size

There is another thing to think about when it comes to school shootings. This wouldn’t apply to mass shootings per se. That is that schools could be kept deliberately small. High schools could be kept large enough to have the opportunities available to students, such as shops that contain the sorts of machinery necessary to … Continue reading

Re-visiting Guns

I posted previously about how I believe America needs a type of gun registry. I want to post a few comments from myself and others on a chat thread to further elaborate upon it. I said, as my screen name evilgenius, The biggest deal with mass shootings is their place in the public consciousness. I … Continue reading

Getting at the Root of Sexual Misconduct and Abuse By Addressing Parenting

I started a new thread on a subject board about this topic. Here’s what I said to start it off; I’ve been thinking about the #metoo thing lately. Originally it went after some obvious abusers. Then it began to go after some who may or may not have been guilty, like Garrison Keillor. It has … Continue reading

General Conversation Around the State of News and the Age We Are In

I posted several things on the website Peakoil.com that have to do with this subject. Instead of restating them, I decided to copy them, and the relevant posts from others that helped shape them. The thread title was Deep State Black Ops. I said, “So, if Putin launched a misinformation campaign against Hillary Clinton because … Continue reading

The Architecture of Frustration

I think we need to look upon the economy like a layered onion, or a tree. All of the attention is focused upon the outermost layer, the one that is growing. The trouble with the US economy is that since the 70’s the outermost layer has become detached from the domestic economy. The fact is … Continue reading

Why the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

Have you ever asked yourself why God put the tree with the fruit that caused man’s downfall within the garden in the first place? There are all kinds of answers. You could say that its presence made man authentic, so long as he didn’t partake of it. I suppose that’s true, but what was man … Continue reading

It’s Time to Talk About Guns

I’m not much of a gun nut, but I do like to shoot occasionally. I think it’s fun to go to the range and fire at a target. There is a certain amount of challenge to it. Sometimes, I’m even a good shot. I have lots of friends who hunt. I grew up in a … Continue reading
