passive

During lunch today, I spoke about how my experiences in life have given me “permission” to be passive.  I’ve written about this before (read my entry from a couple of years ago), however it’s always interesting to revisit these thoughts… Continue Reading →

value

It may be self-evident that all men are created equal.  Unfortunately, this belief leaves a lot to ambiguity. There are a few posts on this blog that have been written to try to encourage people to think about human-ness, human… Continue Reading →

ego

In one moment of unplanned (but most likely planned) impulse, Nimrod West has validated a point that I have been wanting to emphasize.  His idiocy is my exclamation point.  For those, who aren’t aware, while Taylor Swift was accepting her… Continue Reading →

heaven v. hell

rerun: This was first posted on my old blog on March 23, 2008. It’s been a while since I’ve waxed philosophically here. Mostly I haven’t been thinking philosophically much – not sure why. Let’s just say that I’m emerging from… Continue Reading →

human rights?

Before we can really discuss the higher-level health care issues, we have to determine what are human rights? Perhaps who determines them? Maybe even most essental . . . what does it mean to be human? Yes, I’m aware these… Continue Reading →
