A Bright Spot in Louisiana: Privatizing Education

Amidst the doom and gloom of the most recent economic meltdown, combined with the abysmal unemployment numbers, and topped with Bloomberg’s idiotic plan to prohibit the sale of sugary sodas larger than 16 ounces (I hope and plan to write about all these in the near future), there remain a few bright spots on the …

Romney Hits the Nail on the Head at Solyndra

Yesterday, Mitt Romney visited Solyndra, a symbol of the failed Obama economics policies. You can watch the speech he gave here: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_T2bV3jcJk&feature=related] I must say, I think Romney hit the nail on the head. Solyndra is a perfect example of Obama’s complete lack of understanding of business and economics. As Romney said, Obama’s idea of …

Mitt Romney: What Does He Have to Offer?

If you’re a hard-core conservative, then chances are you’re less than thrilled about the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. Let me say, I share your sentiment. There are, quite frankly, a lot of things not to like about Romney. The two things that bother me most about Romney are his version of Obamacare …

The Perfect Drug: Our Modern-Day “Soma” and the Intellectual Decline of America

I recently read Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman. It inspired me so much that I decided to write an entire essay about it, which I thought I’d share with you, my loyal readers.

Deconstructing Deconstructionism: Exploring a philosophy that undermines itself

If authors write with biases, and the words they use don’t have any real, absolute meaning in the first place, how should one go about reading and interpreting literature? Deconstructionism says that each and every text has multiple meanings with multiple equally valid but also incompatible and contradictory interpretations.

A Legal Adult

So, I was posting the essay I wrote a month ago on my blog, and just sorta poking around, as I have not spent much time on my blog lately. As I was browsing, I realized that the lil’ green text under “The Right Perspective” is no longer accurate, since I am now eighteen years …
