An Example of Bad Journalism

This is the worst case of journalism I’ve ever seen. The purpose of the article is obvious: paint Wal-Mart as big, greedy, evil and naughty-naughty. Let’s analyze what actually is going on. The contract with Wal-Mart and the lady was that Wal-Mart doesn’t have to pay for your medical expenses if you get someone else [...]

Why I’m a Capitalist

A couple of months ago, I was with a group of radical anti-capitalists. They thought that government was the answer to life, the universe and everything. They thought that businessmen secretly cheat on their wives and beat their children, whereas the poor starving individual was heroically beaten down by the brutal financial leaders. Maybe I’m [...]

My Last Words

So the other day I was thinking about what I would say if I knew that I could write one letter, or a note, to the whole world, and know that they’d read it. Well, there’s so much that I want to say about all of the important things that make life what it is. [...]

Be a Savior

I have really strange taste in music. I like Irish Punk, classic rock, classical music period, heavy, and pretty much everything in between. The following song by My Chemical Romance is one of my favorites. It’s about a man who’s on his deathbed, and is thinking back on his favorite memory, when his father took [...]

Dying Professor’s Last Lecture

This is long, but it’s incredibly amazing. You need to watch it. A professor discovered that he only had a few months to live, and is prepared to deliver his last lecture. He doesn’t pout, or whine — he says he wants to have fun with the rest of his time on earth. Incredibly encouraging. [...]

The Church is Lame

Warning: Random Rant Following. I’m currently reading the book “Starving Jesus”, written by the guys at XXXChurch.com. These guys aren’t afraid of doing the right thing, even if it offends someone, or makes them go “omgosh! they talked about porn/sex/booze”. The book has been incredible so far, and the honesty that they write with is [...]

Salvation

I woke up, startled, felt feverish. It was only three in the morning. The darkness was more potent than usual and I couldn’t see a thing. He was talking to me again. But I didn’t believe in the voices in my soul, because I knew they weren’t real. Good God!, I screamed at those who [...]
