    On Friday, April 18, 2014, I had the opportunity to attend two political meet-and-greets held around my area.

The second one, which I will now document, was hosted by former Republican Mayor of Dalton, GA, and Gubernatorial candidate David Pennington, who is primarying incumbent Republican Governor Nathan Deal.

    2013 and 2014 Predictions

    As we approach the end of the 2013 elections and close in on the official start of the 2014 cycle, we are beginning to get a clearer picture with regards to how things will play out when voters go to the polls November 5. For as much as most of those races have yet to fully take shape, we are also starting to get some | Read More »

    What Is and What Should Never Be: Why the Hypersexualization of Women Does Us as a Society No Favours Whatsoever

    This one’s been on my mind for a good long while, now. Why is it that a lot of people wish we could live by the morals and standards of the 1950′s? Why do we long for a bygone era when people treated each other with basic decency? Well, just look all around you. It’s a complete mess. I’m positively certain that, at one time | Read More »

    2012 Electoral Predictions

With that said, many things have caught my eye | Read More »

    Agents of Deception: Why Barney & Friends’ Theme Music is Torture to the Intellectual Mind and Deceives the Masses

    New torture techniques used against Guantanamo Bay detainees have been in the news lately. One such method of ‘torture’ is the playing of the “Barney & Friends” song which goes “I love you. You love me. We’re a happy family.” ad nauseum. From the jump, this appeared to be a mixed bag of marbles. On the one hand, those terrorists who’ve not grasped themselves a | Read More »

    The Lonesome Road: Why Lying is a Recipe For Disaster

    In today’s society more than ever before, people are putting getting ahead of the pack above all else, including honesty. People will even go so far as to lie in order to get ahead. I believe there is much more to be gained through honesty instead of through deceit. Cheating on tests has become commonplace in our schools these days. Some kids believe that it | Read More »

    Rider on the Storm: Why I Admire Erin Burnett

    In life, everybody has somebody that they admire. Usually, people admire somebody for bravery in combat, a willingness to speak out/report on divisive issues, or giving their life for a cause. For me, this person showed a willingness to report on divisive issues fairly and impartially. That person is CNN anchor Erin Burnett, and I will explain why I think so in the following paragraphs. | Read More »

    Turn to Stone: Why the State of Modern American Politics has Depressed both Turnout and Interest in the Electoral Process

    With every election cycle, it appears voter turnout is on a downward trajectory. Many factors have led to decreased turnout and depressed interest in elections. I will do my best to explain these factors in the next paragraphs. A major factor in depressed turnout is the perception of an out-of-touch government. And who could blame them? Congress acts on its own accord, passing laws without | Read More »
