Finding My Way: Compassionate Conservatives


Language. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. People spend their lives studying it, deconstructing it, tracing its roots. We use it daily, obviously. Constantly. I’ve heard some people say they think more in images than words. Not I. I’m a very word-orientated person. To me, a word is worth a thousand pictures. At the most basic … Continue reading

    Happy weekend, happy weekenders! I wrote a lengthy post earlier, not related to our favorite show, so this post will be brief, succinct and to the point: college students suck.

I’ve been feeling a little philosophical of late. OK, so I always feel a little philosophical. Recent events have caused me to be even more so.

When I logged on to Twitter today, several friends sent me messages asking if I’d gotten my free crack pipe yet. I thought to myself, well maybe you don’t like my Libertarian-leaning stance on gay marriage, but that’s no reason to get nasty! Of course, they weren’t referencing my stance on any issue, but rather … Continue reading

Yesterday, the New York Times posted an article about Google raising pay for gay employees whose insurance premiums are higher than married couples if they have registered domestic partners on their policies who aren’t dependents. Predictably, everyone has freaked out. It’s discriminatory against straight people! Or so I’ve heard. And, you can’t base benefits on … Continue reading

dhs-visits-blog-FEATURE

Internet networking sites have been abuzz with rumors that legislation is under consideration that would give the President of the United States an Internet “Kill Switch.” That is, the right to shut down the Internet at any time, or, if you are more reasonable, during times of war or impending/occurring cyberattack.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, there’s this bit of legislation. Anyone still want to claim Obama isn’t trying to take over America?
