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

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

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.

The other one concerns Confederate ideals. The Republican Party is rife with Confederate ideals. It isn’t necessarily racist. Take a look at … Continue reading

EU Migrant Crisis

I posted this on peakoil.com today, 3/3/16. It pertains to a lot of things I have been thinking about lately. It’s not intended to take a strong stand one way or the other on immigration in Europe, but to elucidate a point about it that seems lost in the furor. There is a lot that … Continue reading

The Sham That is Donald Trump

I posted this on another site, PeakOil.com, today, under my moniker there, evilgenius. It pretty much expressed how I felt after listening to Donald Trump talk about building his wall. God, this whole Trump thing is interesting. I was listening to him talk on the radio the other day. He was going on about how … Continue reading
