Finance 101 - No Debt

Finance 101 – No Debt

I wish someone had taught me the basics of personal finance when I was younger.  But then, almost no one gets taught the basics of personal finance in America (probably not around the world either, but I can’t speak for other countries on this issue).  It is not taught in schools anywhere, and most parents […]

Rudeness in America

America in 2016 tolerates a level of rudeness way beyond what we used to.  Some of the reasons for this are: The biggest factor is low self esteem. Our current culture of victimization (where anything bad is someone else’s fault) creates low self esteem, and if you don’t respect yourself, you don’t respect others the […]

Climate Change Hypocrisy

I see the commentary already starting regarding Trump being the first “anti-science” president.  Most of the motivation behind this comment is in regards to man made global climate change, although there are additional areas such as regionalized environmental, vaccinations, food quality, and medical that are likely all lumped in there.  This post is specifically about […]

Billy Bob Thornton is one of those actors that rarely has […]

Sexism Hypocrisy #201

As much as I have been trying to avoid politics, its hard to miss all the uproar over comments Donald Trump made several years.  Trump is just the latest in a long line of prominent males getting eviscerated by the media over what the media considers to be “sexist comments”.  I haven’t listened to what […]

Alligator in the Back Yard

There has been a full size alligator hanging out in the big pond for about a week.  The sheriff first came out when there were reports of kids throwing rocks and sticks at the alligator (yes, I am serious, the sheriff said the kids were throwing rocks at a full size alligator). We don’t get […]
