It is my hope that the people reading my work would not actually care "About Me". I have an education, a job, and a place to live. I am, for all intents and purposes, as "average" as any American can be, at least in background. It is by my ideas that I would want the reader to judge the worth of my articles. Hopefully I Inform, entertain, inspire, or even piss off the reader enough to comment and return. My thoughts are forever evolving and growing. Often I have found myself in 180 degrees opposition from a value, policy or virtue I once believed strongly in. "Flip Flopping", when done right, I believe is a sign of an open mind. It can also be a sign of a weak mind.

Credit In The Simplest Terms Possible. I Think
As long as the government keeps propping up the credit industry our problems will never be solved. To understand why bailing out the auto industry is more sensible than bailing out Fannie, Freddie, AIG, or Lehman. At least the auto industry produces a product.
Raising Taxes vs. Reducing Wealth
Often the argument is made by the conservative right that Democrats are noted for raising taxes and drive jobs out of the country. Take a shallow perspective of what that means and it is accurate. However, the whole story is that Republicans have a more backhanded approach to achieve the same means. This article will delve further into that reality.
Partisan Politics And Presidential Powers
Poking fun at average Joe Voter's lack of understanding how to vote and what effects the president has on the policies that affect their life. Voting 101 and alternative uses for the Oval Office are all covered.
Why Isn't It Our Business?
After Chelsea pointed out that she has never been asked about her mom's credibility in reference to the nation's most public sex scandal it left me to ask, "why not?" That lead me to consider other questions that have gone unasked of Ms. Clinton.
