    Playing The Victim: Easter Edition

    It’s easy to fall back on old habits.  I’ve been eating paleo (a diet with too much kale imo) lately but yesterday I cheated with a piece of pizza.  It was hard to resist, just sitting there all easy and familiar, unlike the effort to put together a paleo lunch.  Whatever the issue, we’ve all dealt with, and sometimes failed, the challenge of changing what | Read More »

    Those Annoying Social Issues

    If you’re familiar with the presidential election of 2012, you’re aware that social conservatives are allegedly the reason we lost.  Yes, they just had to bring up abortion and gay marriage and spoil the whole thing.  Clearly if we had just stuck to policy, which the American people love to hear about, we’d be redesigning the Oval Office right now.

    Fracking: Drilling Past The Myths

    It’s probably safe to say that most Americans are unaware of what the term “fracking” means.  If you’ve heard of it, the details can be hard to pin down due to the controversy surrounding the method of gas extraction.  With mainstream movies like Gasland and The Promised Land on their side, those opposing fracking have easily buried the truth below layers of myths.  Fortunately, as | Read More »

    Banning Gays From The Prom

    While anti-discrimination laws prevent gay students from being excluded from school activities, a group of students, parents and a teacher are hoping to do just that.  According to Paige Preusse of NBC 2, At Sullivan High School, in Sullivan, Indiana, the group will be creating a separate prom that will ban gay students from attending. As if the idea of excluding certain students from the | Read More »
