6 Problems with New New Twitter

Twitter Interactions

I may be one of the only people who doesn’t use a Twitter client to use Twitter. Aside from the Android app for when I’m “on the go”, I access Twitter via a web browser, as God intended. So, now that the second New Twitter has come around, it’s greatly affected my virtual life. Fortunately, I like to complain about….

Buying Our Freedom


Patriotism isn’t symbolic. It’s not the flag or a lapel pin. It’s not emotion either. It’s not love for your country or hope for our future. Patriotism is action. It’s participation. Asked what kind of government we formed in our early days, Benjamin Franklin responded, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” That is what patriotism is: the act of….

Rebecca Black’s Moment is a Message to Haters


And that message is a happy fuck you. “Weren’t you the one who said that I would be nothing? Well, I’m about to prove you wrong.” And she already did that. The amount of fame she got, whether it lasts or not, makes about 99% of the world’s population insignificant by comparison. How many people know your name? Exactly. But….

Republican Presidential Candidates: The Dealbreakers


Sometimes I wonder why I’m even a Republican. Fortunately, the Democrats continually remind me. However, it just seems like it’s getting more and more difficult to be an admitted member of the GOP. It feels more like the OP at times. A plethora of candidates already grace the national stage, and most are downright appalling. Whatever their merits, they have….

Top 7 Threats to Our Independence

Saying the Pledge in School

It’s finally Independence Day. It’s one of the most important holidays to me, and yet has long been one of the most depressing. I’m forced to remember our nation’s history, and the realization that we hold almost no ideals originally found in the Declaration of Independence is more saddening each year. Rather than talk about how there is a problem….

Mocking the Pledge of Allegiance?


I don’t usually do this, but it’s my blog, so I can make up the rules as I go. Here’s a video from the YouTube: This is apparently from a group called The Whitest Kids U’Know. The video is brilliant. After watching it, it made me upset that the Pledge is still a mandatory thing in most public schools. This….

A Day of Disappointment

The Rapture

Well, it’s 6 o’clock somewhere, and people are still all over this place. So, it’s safe to say that The Rapture didn’t happen. That’s the biggest problem with prophecies, I find. They never come true. It can be frustrating, especially when it’s such an awesome prophecy! It’s like an orphan asking Santa for a Dino-Riders T-Rex and Krulos set. I….

Raindrops Keep Falling on Piers Morgan’s Head


I’m following several of my favorite celebrities on Twitter. After all, that’s the one true point of Twitter, isn’t it? Unfortunately, this sometimes means I’m let down by their online behavior. Usually it’s nothing major. Seth MacFarlane cracks a stupid joke. Jason Alexander references something of his that isn’t Seinfeld. Stephen Fry says something too Britishy for me to understand…..
