  2. Equality Vs. Equity

    I love this image so much. It sparked quite a conversation on Facebook. One thing I quickly realized is that this image is open to interpretation. That wasn't what I got out of it at all! Seeing someone agree with him and make it about Milennials, I decided to share…

  3. How Did This Happen?

    How did this happen? People will ask. And I don't just mean liberals. Conservatives seem rather baffled, too. Let's start with something we can all agree on now: Polls are bullshit. Clearly you can't take them to the bank. You can't even reasonably expect they reflect reality. Maybe that's because…

  4. Sour Grapes and Bittersweet Revenge

    This is so freaking weird that I kind of agree with Glenn Beck, who says: I am firmly against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as potential presidents of the United States of America. I believe that neither candidate has the values, decency or principles to be the leader of…

  9. Blood in the Water

    Some people seem think: "Whatever you do, don't provoke the police officer. Otherwise it's your fault."

  10. Misinformation About the Confederacy Freeing Black Slaves

    Someone shared this on Facebook: Not only had I never heard this before, it seemed suspicious. Being something of a skeptic, I try to investigate all suspicious claims, because I don't want to be one of those people who shares misinformation as truth, nor do I want to rewrite history.…
