"Probably not. Well, definitely not. The more I think about it, the more I'm absolutely sure that we aren't friends. Acquaintances? Sure. Lovers? Sometimes. Political allies? Always. But, friends? We've never been friends. I honestly don't know if you still know how to make new friends. I'd never let my... Continue reading

Healthcare. It's going to cost money, we can't change that. That means, either the government pays, insurance pays, or you pay for it personally. If it's the government that pays for it, that's what your tax dollars are being used for. Insurance paying for it means premiums are tied to... Continue reading

You and me both, Randle. But, we've got to find a way to breach the gap. Pushing with consistency is vital.
Liberals have a marketing and communication problem. Conservatives do too, but, theirs is in the moral consistency of their message and the actual viability of their ideas. With Liberals, specifically, there is a huge gap in the message intended and the message delivered. This is partially because of the consistent... Continue reading

Instead of a normal blog post, I've taken some time to aggregate and summarize the overlapped feelings of some citizens that support or despise Trump below: Give Trump a chance! Like we have a choice? For some reason, Trump supporters seem to think "Give him a chance"= "Ignore the corrupt,... Continue reading

There is nothing mind blowing about most self help advice. It may be new information. It may come from a different point of view. But it's nothing you don't understand; make list, cross them out. Eat better, invest in yourself, don't let people treat you terribly. Rinse and repeat. You'll... Continue reading

I'm a great guy. I'm smart, I mean well, I work hard, I put effort into my life, and my relationships(Reference: ex gfs). I'm also hilarious. I'm an idiot(Reference: ex gfs). I've gone months/years without checking in on my health when I should, for everything from chronic migraines, to dislocated... Continue reading

All of it. Love is a phrase that is used way too often, and not often enough. Love is ever-evolving and flexible. Love is patient(Soooo much patience).Love is infuriating. Love is just as fierce as it is kind. Love is everything, but love is not the only thing. Love is... Continue reading

Every blue moon I have a bad day that I can't shake from bringing down my mood. Yesterday was one of those days. Spilled food, 4 hours in traffic, lost a ton of money, no time to relax, can't seem to breathe type of bad day. I normally go into... Continue reading

A dear friend of mine having severe self confidence issues asked me how I stay so confident. She spirals emotionally, and assumed that it was something that confident people don't have to deal with. So, I told her i'd write out the next time I had a similar experience, and... Continue reading

I got a phone call in the morning from a crying mother, who had found my name on her daughters suicide note. I was listed with 4 others, all of us regulars at the same coffee shop; we would chat in line before heading to work before the day. Her... Continue reading

My grandmother once told me that the devil is anything you hate, can't get away from, and you're convinced that you have to try and take on alone. "Bam Bam- it doesn't matter what you believe in, we all have our own demons to deal with." For the longest time... Continue reading

Than you, and everyone else that isn't running. You PROBABLY would be a better candidate, as would almost anyone else. However, by rule of participation, he is automatically a better candidate than anyone who doesn't run(the argument can be made that no President is better than a Trump President, but...

Don't be mad cuz i'm doing me better than you doing you. If they hate then let'em hate and watch the money pile up. Don't let people's compliments go to your head, nor their criticism to your heart. Look at criticism as a sort of envious tribute. There is only... Continue reading

Deep in American culture, we have severe problems with rape, racism, and guns. We spend so much time focusing on the individual cases, pretending they are fluke events(that somehow keep consistently happening) instead of working on the root causes that make these issues almost institutions. Rape culture isn't just about... Continue reading

Because that's exactly what's needed. The internet has allowed us to connect and find tribes of our own. People who act, think, and agree with us already. This gift/curse, has allowed us to not allow new inputs, we don't have to consider opinions that may undermine our own. We all... Continue reading

My mother bought a Ford Flex a little while back, and until she did, I swear I had only seen the car twice, ever. Now, I see them everywhere. There is the chance that I’m the progeny of vehicle trendsetters. However, the more likely scenario is that until I made... Continue reading

In 1720 Sir Isaac Newton owned shares in the South Sea Company, the hottest stock in England, and sold them at a %100 profit. A couple of months later, getting caught up in the emotions and huge enthusiasm of the market, Newton bought back in at a much, much, higher... Continue reading

Probably to someone. You're opinionated, irritable, needy,borderline bipolar, hypocritical and hypercritical. In fact, you probably like to kick babies. You're a wall-street banker. You leave only one egg in the carton. You're Rush Limbaugh; you are THE WORST. There is no completely true, or completely false version of you. You... Continue reading
