Why Physical Discipline is Physical Abuse

Let’s talk about physical discipline. There are two lines of thought about it. One says that it has existed forever, that their parents did it, and that it “worked for them”. The other side of the argument is that it is physical abuse, is a crime both legally and morally, and that it is ineffective. …

Adoption Again

I had a short, though frustrating, conversation yesterday with someone. We were talking about how Steve Jobs was adopted. I said that the biological parents should be rewarded for giving their child a chance through adoption. He said that it was the parents obligation to raise the child and if they couldn’t raise the child, …

Birth Control Legislation

Effective August 2012, all health plans must cover birth control and preventative screenings for women. The conservatives are against this because, well, because liberals support the idea. Now I may have voiced my opinions on reproduction in the past. I know. I never speak my mind. Anyway, my argument has been that people are having …

Adoption Vs. Abortion

I heard someone say “I don’t believe in adoption” recently. First off, you don’t “believe” in it? Like you don’t think it’s real? Secondly, saying “I don’t believe in adoption” is basically saying “I don’t believe in putting my child first” or “I don’t believe in giving my child a chance at a happy life”. …

2010 Review

I meant to post this last month,  but forgot. So here we go. 2010 started on a low note. I was unemployed, had no money, and was stressed out beyond belief. It ended on a high note. I got to see one of my favorite bands from my teenage years, Everclear. At the same time, …

Skills include, but are not limited to: She is trained to hunt all manner of imaginary creatures. The trolls that live in my couch are, judging by the constant clawing, …

Minirant: Are You Fucking Kidding Me?

A 170 page manual detailing HOW TO MOLEST CHILDREN has surfaced in Florida. Re read that last sentence. First of all, the police have known about this for 6 months, yet have no leads and have not told people about it. Next, the “Deputies believe whoever is responsible may have committed crimes against children.” Really? …

My Solutions

Some of my last few posts have been angry tirades upon the stupidity permeating society. To be fair, I have decided to write this post which will contain my solutions for the problems I see, phrased in a positive light. This is a work in progress. Many of these ideas might not work. Most will. …

The Entertainment Industry is Doomed

(note: for the sake of comedy, click on the links) The Centers for Disease Control released a report today on the prevalence of cigarette smoking in movies, which they naturally say is too often. According to the CDC’s report, nearly half of all the popular movies released in 2009 contained some sort of “tobacco imagery,” …

Minirant: Silly Poll

So the USA Today had a poll this morning. “Percentage of adults saying it’s “very likely” they’d give CPR to the following: Family Member – 84% Friend – 74% Co-worker – 61% Boss – 58% Stranger – 45% Cat/Dog – 28%” Now, while I think it’s funny that 28% would give CPR to a cat …
