Quick Questions: Retribution

There was a bombing in Kabul as America is trying to evacuate people from Afghanistan. At least 30 people were killed. President Biden said, “To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and […]

Quick Questions: The Afghanistan Withdrawal

Since American troops pulled out of Afghanistan and the Taliban began retaking the country, people have been talking about it a lot. However, no one seems to be talking about how to ameliorate the situation, or even explaining why the situation is bad. Instead, everyone is pointing fingers and assigning blame. The usual suspects are […]

At Least Blame the Right People

As the Coronavirus Pandemic drags on and on, people, on all sides, are getting more and more frustrated. I know I am. When we get frustrated, it is only natural to look for people to blame. If we can just take care of the cause of the problem, things will finally start to get better, […]

Something To Think About Concerning the Minimum Wage

People have been talking about the $15 federal minimum wage for a while now. With Biden’s election, it’s a real possibility. Democrats have a way of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, so I’m not making any predictions, but it has a better chance than it did a year ago. So, this seems like […]

What Should I Do if I Can’t Trust my Leaders?

Whenever I seriously discuss anarchy with others, I usually get one of two responses. The first is some form of, “People need to be led.” The second is, “Without authority, there’ll be chaos.” I can’t discredit either one of those concerns because they might be true. But our leaders aren’t trustworthy, and that’s a huge […]

Buzz Kill

I haven’t posted anything about politics since election day. So many people have been so happy with the results. People were literally dancing in the streets. I don’t want to mess with that. I want people to be happy, I really do. I just don’t get where that happiness is coming from. I know Biden […]

I Voted, Whoop-di-doo

I voted today. That’s no shock. I’ve voted in every election, primary, referendum, and ballot question since I turned 18. Voting is very, very important to me. Every time before today, I’ve been an enthusiastic voter. Today, I don’t think I could have been less enthusiastic. I’m lucky I made it to the polls myself. […]

Short-termism

I’m not, by nature, a person concerned with the short-term. If I lie awake worrying, there’s a better chance that I’m worrying about the eventual heat-death of the universe than what might happen at work tomorrow. An hour, a day, a year are nothing. I can stand on my head that long. Give me the […]

What Were You Expecting?

Trump and Biden faced off in the first presidential debate of the 2020 election on Tuesday night. I didn’t watch. The last time I watched a presidential debate was probably 1992, and that was only because a teacher told me to. It’s not like these are two fresh faces. I wasn’t going to learn anything […]

On History: The 1994 Crime Bill

History is an odd subject in the way it combines objective and subjective views. It is full of objective facts. There can be no reasonable argument about whether certain events happened. On September 11, 2001, the United States was attacked by al Qaeda. Thousands of people died. America responded with things like the PATRIOT ACT […]
