Ultimate Wishes for Changing America Pt. 1

Yesterday I wrote about Religious Bystanders in Politics and racked my brain thinking of the different fields that need immediate change. Last week, a close friend asked me if I had the power to make anything I say come true without consequence, what would I do? The catch is, I do not know how long my powers… Continue reading Ultimate Wishes for Changing America Pt. 1

Similar to the image that the "Hipsters" have worked so hard to create,… Continue reading Urge For The Supreme (Origin)

Y.O.L.O. & Ratchets versus Class & Carpe Diem

Y.O.L.O. is by FAR one of the most annoying phrases of the 21st century next to swag being used in a Toyota Commercial. That little girl is so cute.    Anyway, I love a bit of reckless abandonment of inhibition as the next person. But, Y.O.L.O. has gotten too large and gone too far. Y.O.L.O. now… Continue reading Y.O.L.O. & Ratchets versus Class & Carpe Diem
