Why Men Are So Shocked to Learn that Women Can Be Funny!!

22 Jun

Yep. Newsflash. Women are hilarious!

     …they just aren’t allowed to be if they ever want to bag a guy. Men pride themselves in their physical/athletic ability, problem solving capacity, and sense of humor over most all else when it comes to how they impress the fairer sex. So despite being equally comedically talented, women have learned not to outshine the boys in the humor department.

     This practice is reinforced every time a woman makes an awesome joke in mixed company, and is met wtih confused expressions as the men deliberate:

Surely she didn’t mean to be funny… so maybe she just doesn’t get it.  Ok, we’ll just pretend like she didn’t say anything so she doesn’t feel bad for being dumb.  Plus she’s cute, so we’ll let it slide.  

…Now, one of the dudes making that same joke, of course, would be deemed life of the party~

Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life.

18 Jun

We all know the classic maxim, “Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.”  Well think and act like the person you want to be.  Who is to tell you you’re wrong??

“Wait, you’re not an outgoing person.”

“I’m being outgoing now, aren’t I?”

   The phrase, “That’s not me,” is a logical fallacy.  What one is really saying is, “That is not the kind of choice I have made in the past.” Yes, there is a certain value placed on consistency.  However, that parochial value is vastly outweighed by the need for utility.  We’ve all heard the maxim, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  Well in that same vein, it follows, that, “If it IS broke, fix it ya jackass!”

   Your only true limitations while on this earth are what you can do physically.  You may not be able to slam dunk.  Okay, get over it.  Everything else is a mental game.  With just a few tweaks (doses of reality) regarding the way you perceive yourself and the world around you, it is possible to achieve all that you desire in life.

U.S. Prison Overcrowding: Problem Solved.

19 Mar

I was shocked to learn that the United States houses 25% of the world’s prisoners.  Many of the prisons operating at 200% capacity.  This is a serious problem. However, decriminalization of particular drugs, sentencing/parole reform, plus swift and certain punishment would turn that all around.  Continue reading

“Frenemies w/Benefits.”

Definition: A friend of the opposite sex that you generally despise and can’t stand to be around but somehow end up hooking up with from time to time.  (Usually after a long day/night of drinking).

U.S. Foreign Aid: How About We Secure OUR Oxygen Masks First??

12 Mar

   Call me crazy, but shouldn’t CA and the US put our money towards fixing our own economic crises: providing jobs, food and shelter to its tax-paying citizens before shelling out millions to aid every country hit by a natural disaster??  Trust me, we have PLENTY of starving people without homes, clothing, clean water, and… medical supplies right here in America.  Just throwin’ that out there-

PS: You don’t believe me??  Take a stroll down Skid Row. Continue reading

The Exclusionary Rule

13 Feb

In Re: Exclusionary Rule as a Check and Deterrent

113 U.S. 82 (2009)

CHIEF JUSTICE ST. MICHAELS delivered the opinion of the Court.

   Excluding evidence that is procured by violating the 4th Amendment is the strongest shield we have to protect against unlawful searches and seizures.  Those who argue that only the guilty benefit from this protection naively insult the very purpose of the 4th Amendment.  There can be no doubt that our founding fathers passed the 4th Amendment not to protect murderers and thieves from unreasonable searches and seizures, but to protect the innocent.  Continue reading

Funny illustration of the above point.  It should be noted that there’s much, MUCH more ridiculousness to the story however.

White Fish, Black Fish, Who the F Cares Fish When We all Share the  Same Shrinking  & Polluted Ocean???

8 Sep

   Ok, I’m sorry. I was watching Bill Maher last night and I simply can’t take it anymore.  It’s not just a Bill Maher thing, everyone does it, but the repeat episode I watched last night with guests Philippe Cousteau Jr. (hence my oceanic/ B.P. reference in the title), and Prof. Cornel West, was simply the last straw.  Perhaps it was the lack of sleep, perhaps it was the wine, but I found myself yelling at the panel like, “Wtf does it matter that whatever percent of white v. black families net income has been doing in response to changes in the U.S. economy??”  To me, race is just as significant in a discussion about our failing economy as is some one’s sex, religion, eye color or blood type.

The ARIZONA Debate: How politicians are knowingly misleading the public for their personal gain.

8 Sep

-Mayor Villaraigosa, I hate to say, but the only unconstitutional action within this whole debate is your boycott on the state of Arizona in violation of the Sherman Act-
 

     Yes, mid-term elections are coming up and both parties are looking to instigate controversy and rile citizens into the voting booths while also gaining favor from the Hispanic community.  Neither of which is a problem, unless of course the controversy is merely a tactical fabrication intended to manipulate the trusting public.

Is Space Exploration Really a  Priority Right Now??

25 Aug

Ok look. Lord knows I love The Universe series on The History Channel. But given that our debt is in the trillions…Why in the world is our president talking about putting billions of dollars into NASA to explore Mars and deep space? Is this really where our money should be going right now??
