Favorite Quote:
"All we do is either prasied or censured but never understood- F. Nietzsche
About Me:
I have many concerns and many ideas about the nature of modern man- I grew up in poverty but have many experiences that are not directly related to poverty- I have a graduate degree in the Social Sciences and I have a degree in Philosophy.

I am not fond of or shall I say I do not suffer fools gladly especially those who enjoy quoting a feeble minded corpulent Prime Minister of England during the WWII era. Such notions as when young and your conservative you have no heart when mature and liberal you have no mind, or words to that effect are trivial meaningless utterances compared to the writtings of Plato, Hegel, Lennin, Marx, Freud, Neitzsche, Kafka and so many other brilliant writers.
However if one is serious minded they will acknowledge the neccessity of not judging a person only on a few scarse words or utterances. I am at my best when I allow myself to be open minded to hear and consider a different point of view and perhaps incorporate other views into my world view.
Issues I Care About:
Economic and Social justice- Jobs- Housing- Health Care

I Can't Get No Satisfaction

There is too much information being presented through various forms of media i.e., TV, Computers- Social Media, I -Phones, Radios, News Papers, Magazines, Posters, Billboards, Mailings, etc. So much information being presented at rapid speed it is impossible for any individual to actually intergrate and take seriously the world as presented through media. Also there is an enormous amout of Marketing material designed to inspire the consumer to make purchases.

So much useless…

Regardless of this, many people will still vote. People will vote for window dressing- Obama appears to make better window dressing than Romney. Obama should win this election- because he is known and liked better than Romney.

 

The economy is connected to everything else all domestic and forgien policy issues are connected to economic interest. So…

A lost alienated state to find oneself

Only in Capitalism could natural phenomena - Nurishment and Shelter be turned into somthing one has to seek after in the form of a dream the american dream- a home and sustenance.

 

What a twisted reality man has created for himself.

Opposite of an intent

 

It appears that at some point in time people utilized some form of exchange in order to facilitate their lives. Some form of exchange to make life more simple and perhaps better. However, over time it appears that the means of exchange ceased being a way to facilitate life and became a distructive force. The original purpose turned on itself and became it's opposite;The means of exchange became superior to life itself. Life became subjugated to the means of exchange. One can…

Good for goose good for gander

 Because of Citizens United Supreme Court decision basically justifyng corporations having individual rights- That is, the individual right to free speech - Then if they are deemed to have this individual freedom, it only follows that they must pay a tax rate at the individual effective rate and not corporate rate with only 15% for dividens etc.

 

What is good for the gooses is good for the gander- Pay the Tax or shut up!
