Dear Congress,

Pizza cannot be considered a serving of vegetables just because it contains tomato sauce. Tomatoes are fruits.

Sincerely,

Educated People

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.  ~Thomas Henry Huxley, An Address to the Students of the Faculty of Medicine in University College, London, May 18, 1870, On the Occasion of the Distribution of Prizes for the Session

Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men

Peace on earth, good will to men
Shall be the call to bring my end
For I wear a sheath without a sword
But the Man shan’t look before
Weilding the blow that ends my life
Peace on earth, good will to men

Black Friday: Proud of Yourself, America?

Proud of yourselves, America? This is what the world sees. For the past year, if not more, all I’ve heard is people bitching about greed, the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer and then what do you do? Wait for all those “bargains”, go out in the middle of the night, spend your poor pay check to make another man richer. Good job. You’ve learned nothing.

I’d ask when you will learn but if history tells me anything, the answer is, You never will. Year in and year out, the bitching will continue that “commercialism is taking over”, “Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year”, and “Blah blah blah corporations, blah blah blah greed.”

Things won’t change until you stop feeding the beast. Things won’t change until you stop supporting corporations and start supporting small businesses.

WAKE UP!
