Religions Teach Bad Morals

  I just want to say that in my personal opinion, morality should be determined by what is not harmful to others. The bible is full of rape stories and depictions of slavery, and none of it is condemned. In fact, it often seems to be encouraged. I just don’t think that is a good […]

Support Writers!

I know I have mentioned this before, but I just want to remind you that I did write a book, and that I would really love it if you could check it out. Buying a copy and reading it is an amazing way to say that you care. Reviewing it on Amazon.com is even better! […]

It’s Getting Hot on Earth

  Bernie Sanders made Climate Change one of the staples of his campaign, and I hope it isn’t one of those issues that will fall out of favor now that he is no longer a Presidential candidate. I know that in the USA, we see a lot of crazy people denying Climate Change. However, I […]

Culture of Fighting

  I have been thinking a lot about the #Blacklivesmatter movement, and about how everyone is so keen to fight lately. Look; I am not trying to fight with anyone or compete with anyone. I hope we all make it. That’s what the Bernie Sanders movement was all about; rising the tone of all of […]

Angry Rants for Average Americans

  So I wrote a book called Angry Rants for Average Americans. It’s a great book, and you should all buy it! It’s really just about how the country looks to someone who moved away (for work) and is standing outside it all. It looks into what the country is like form the outside, and […]

Morality

  Morality is one of those things that everyone has a different opinion about. Now mind you, I am still upset about the Orlando Massacre because even though it’s been ages and everyone in the USA has already forgotten, it’s still a topic of conversation among my expat friends from other countries who are still […]

Climate Change

  I talk a lot about being from Arizona because it’s one of those places that is really distinctive. One of the things that makes it so distinct is that it is a desert, and it gets very hot in the summer. However, it’s hotter than it used to be. When I was a kid, […]

Deathversary

  It is the anniversary of the day one of my childhood friends was shot. I kind of mark the day every year by feeling morose about it. It’s one thing to lose a friend to old age, or a disease, or something slow where you had a chance to talk to them before they […]

Motivation

I spend entirely too much time on reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. I know this. And when I go other places and my Korea cell phone doesn’t work, I stop and look around at life and it is nice. And yet… this is still my struggle. It doesn’t help that we have come of the […]

Happy 240th Birthday!

  I talk a lot about the problems facing the USA as a country, because I want us to strive to be better. There are a lot of problems, from a political system that doesn’t represent the people to corporate welfare, discrimination, and the militarization of the police force. There is the matter of private […]
