QUOTE: Calvin Coolidge

Today everyone wants to be recognized for simply existing.

The reality... Continue Reading →

QUOTE: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Beauty is often mistaken to simply be good. But that is not always the case. This quote reminded me of a song by the Main Squeeze called "The Devil Was An Angel Too."

Henry David Thoreau, a Transcendentalist and writer, retreated to the woods to live by a pond in the Northeast United States. Walden Pond, now famous thanks to Thoreau, inspired him to write this work that is a beautiful, cynical commentary on his time. His insights and observations on his time, however, are timeless.

State Of The Union: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

In a land where every person is supposed to be equal, the fact that one man stands in front of the country each year to be lauded for the accomplishments of each individual is stupid and imperialistic. It gives the office of the Presidency the appearance of Monarchy and diminishes the accomplishments of the individual Americans who made the real difference.
