Election 2012 Predictions

Election 2012 Predictions

I hate it when there’s something going on and I can’t remember what it is! I’m not even sure where I heard about this; it was either on the news or some flyer I got in the mail, but it seems like it’s there’s something important happening tomorrow and for the life of me I just can’t remember what it is! Of course I highly doubt anyone has forgotten that tomorrow is Election 2012 here in the US. Tomorrow we finally start to find closure to all those months of hateful, negative comments thrown back and forth about Obama and Romney; from all the lies told...

LeBrun’s Rules for Political Debate

LeBrun’s Rules for Political Debate

Over the last few years I have remained mostly quiet about my political views, despite a love discussing policies and strategies. I’ve talked about politics some on my weekly Internet radio show, The Sideliners Show, but not on my blog or other social media sites. This has been due, in part, to the emerging political environment that has devolved to attacking opponents rather than addressing the issues.  This is evidenced by biased bloggers who care more about getting the story first rather than actually getting the story right and the popularity of social networks where anybody can parrot biased talking points...

Thoughts on the Affordable Care Act

Thoughts on the Affordable Care Act

Back in school I had a love-hate relationship with history. I loved learning about historical events (I was somewhat of a local expert on the Kennedy assassination in high school, which may have been why I didn’t date a lot!) but didn’t so much care for the importance put on memorizing dates. Strangely enough, I can still tell you that the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 but I can’t tell you exactly what it was all about. But yesterday, June 28, 2012, will be one of those dates future generations of students are forced to remember – the day...

Facebook: A Love/Hate Relationship 1

Facebook: A Love/Hate Relationship

I think it was Shakespeare who penned the poignant and hauntingly beautiful phrase, “Women! You can’t live with them and you can’t live without them!”  What The Bard didn’t realize about his completely mysognistic and inappropriate statement is that nearly 400 years after his death, his words would still be true about women but also about Facebook. Can I get a witness?

Bad Will Toward Goodwill 1

Bad Will Toward Goodwill

Let me start off by saying I think Goodwill is a great organization, from what I can tell.  From a political perspective, it’s quite possible that Goodwill is one of the truly bipartisan companies: conservatives love the positive economic impacts the company makes on local communities while liberals love how the company protects our environment by keeping lots of junk out of the landfills! That said, I absolutely hate taking things to Goodwill.  I know it’s an irrational feeling but I can’t seem to shake the idea that the person receiving my stuff is looking at me, judging me based...
