This just baffles me. I wonder what they mean by “all the other things you have to do.”
If you know me, you understand I have spent a lot of time abroad and stuff like this really sticks out and I cannot help but read it as a reflection of the culture.
I have never really gotten over the culture shock and from trashy TV to continuous solicitations to buy something it seems I’m in a continuous state of bewilderment.
It would seem that everyday there is another issue on which opinion is evenly divided down partisan lines. Healthcare has pretty much gone away and now it is all about the Arizona Immigration bill which ranks about 100% on the outrage meter. However, this issue is going to linger for a while and perhaps it…… Continue reading News – Oil Spill and Awful Politics
Yet again another political issue is all over the media. And as usual the debate is superficial filled with shallow “talking points,” which paint the issue as black and white and the color you choose being your political affiliation.I find the debate swirling around the details of the law a bit too much. For example,…… Continue reading Arizona Immigration Law – A Unique Perspective
It has now been four years since I came back to the States and what a ride. I got a nice job and joined corporate-land where they use the English language in a strange way such as say they “have so much on my plate,” and other metaphors which take me a minute to “digest.” Things are going well but I have to say I’m really envious of you all at the moment because I’m really missing life over there!!

Yet, these “opinions” are really just emotional outbursts which center on certain talking points. The talking points revolve around central themes which just happen to orbit two centers of gravity known as political…… Continue reading 10 Minutes of Insanity – Post gets worse as it goes along.
I really could not think of a better title for this so I kept it very simple. I just watched a few videos on YouTube that have reached top rankings and center around the theme “Debtors Revolt Begins Now.” Basically it’s a bunch of people very upset with Bank of America charging an APR of…… Continue reading Bank of America = Awful
Healthcare. For me, just saying that word conjures up feelings of boredom, something that only old people with white/gray hair and wrinkles talk about and large confusing plans that make me feel dumb when I try to understand them. Now, when I read my news in the morning it is a word tied to something…… Continue reading Healthcare Debate and a small rant on selfishness (nonpartisan)
When I was about 20 years old, I was asked by a city leader if I “like politics.” At that time, I really didn’t know what it was and relied on the opinions of others to form my own. I didn’t really have them explain in depth about any of the issues but would passively…… Continue reading Hateful Politics
