Tension and the Harms of Methods of Exchange

The genesis for this post is from my weekend Twitch stream where I stream politics on Fridays (for ~3 hours) and Saturdays (for ~ 1 hour).

Reclaim Armistice Day (Nov 11) - Veterans For Peace

A Veteran’s Reflection on Veterans Day

Today I went to my daughter’s school’s Veterans Day program. Once I returned home from that I started writing first by putting my thoughts into a few Facebook posts and then moved those thoughts to a draft blog post as I am want to do. I really needed to get it out of my head, and because of that I also live streamed my thoughts on this through my Twitch channel too. It was an emotional day and I am NOT that sort of guy.

Open Letter to Conservatives Who Think Progressives Should Just GTFO If They do Not Like It

Introduction If any of you know me in real life you may or may not know that my entire family (as far as I am aware) is conservative – some even blindly so. As agonizingly progressive as I am this makes family events a very delicate thing. My mother and I cannot even broach a […]

Arthur Fleck Laughing Despairingly on a Bus (Joker 2019)

Themes, Messages, and Symbolism from the Movie “Joker”

I just saw the movie (Wed, 9 Oct 2019) and then was able to watch the movie again a week later (Wed, 16 Oct 2009) with my mother, and was able to take some quick notes to help fill out my rather large post. I really, really wish I had a DVD of this or was able to stream this so I can do this movie and post some real justice! There is so much more I am missing, but alas!

Term Limits for Politicians Will Make Things Worse

Introduction I am writing this article pursuant to this link found on Facebook which talks about Ted Cruz submitting legislation to enact term limits for senators.

Carl Sagan and His Famous ‘Pale Blue Dot’ Speech

Introduction Background While watching a video or two from Neil deGrasse Tyson (one of which I recently posted: Video: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Keynote Speech for the 28th National Space Symposium (2012)) I saw a lecture from Carl Sagan in the sidebar, so I decided to give the original Cosmos narrator’s wisdom a spin.

Video: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Keynote Speech for the 28th National Space Symposium (2012)

Introduction I have just found this great video of an understandably irate Neil deGrasse Tyson (NdT) speaking the truth in this amazing video from 2012! The power of the innovation and inspiration gained from the NASA and our space program and its accomplishments is worth far more than the paltry 1 cent for each tax […]
