As we march towards the Secret Muslim Totalitarian Socialist Society™, it seems that the earmarks of Socialism are everywhere. Taxes, an institution of civilization that have always been begrudgingly accepted as part of living in a community that serves public needs, are now "Taking from us to give to them." Social Welfare programs, created to … Continue reading Socialism and the Prisoner’s Dilemma
It looks like I have a job here in NOLA. After less than a month of looking (the first two weeks were a wash as I was exploring the city and anticipating a visit to Kansas), I'll be getting back into the food service industry that I prefer.

If you rightly don't care about this whole clusterfuck of inanity because you, again rightly, understand that this whole mess is about the political parties … Continue reading Class Warfare
Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike. ~ Oscar Wilde Oh my, the Weiner is out of the bag. To be honest, this story doesn't interest me all that much (though I anticipate Jon Stewart's nightly take on it). No laws were broken, no apparent abuse of congressional power … Continue reading A Moral Question
