Refutation is simple

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

All you have to do is just state something as a fact! Don't believe me? Watch how simple it is! When I saw his list of questions that he would supposedly refute, I was very interested in number 3: "Isn't having to work for a boss in capitalism the same as having ...

24: Torture is A-ok

Monday, January 12th, 2009

A number of my friends have Facebook statuses (stati?) about the new season of 24. Apparently, they're doing a two night double header, in which they showed one episode last night to be followed by an additional one tonight. I feel compelled to comment on my thoughts of 24. I saw ...

The Kel Weaver Political Bit

Monday, December 8th, 2008

My brother, whom I would describe as a Christian Fundamentalist Republican, once made a comment that I was "more right" than he was, simply because I wanted even less government than him. This seems odd to me, considering that I'm opposed to laws against gay marriage, drugs, or many other ...

Time To Bail On The Dollar

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

With the bailouts that have been going on over the past week, with Dictator Paulson pledging half of our national productivity to bail out failing financials, I think it's clear time to get out of the dollar. About two months ago, I had devised a plan. To buttress myself against ...

What If…

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

David Z over at No Third Solution has a series of posts in which he talks in great detail about taxes that show he is way more knowledgeable about economic issues than I am. They are quite long, and I will admit to not have read all of them completely yet ...

Bill O’reilly – Liar Extraordinaire

Friday, November 14th, 2008

It has recently been brought to my attention that during a recent Daily Show interview, Bill O'reilly - one of the worst big-government neocons - told Jon Stewart that he was an anarchist. Sure enough (check the 4:02 mark): That's right. Bill O'reilly, the same guy who could find no fault ...

Failblog captures the essence of government

Friday, November 14th, 2008

I don't blag enough on this shared blag between John and I. So when I do these drive-by postings, I feel guilt that I've gone so long without providing something of actual substance. But regardless, here I go again. I will frequent FAIL Blag for laughs. Today, they had this gem: At ...

On the Use of Language

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

As the economic collapse grows larger and larger, should it really surprise anyone that the parasitic government would begin to determine new ways to leech off of the citizenry? Behold. Obviously, private citizens cannot properly save for retirement themselves. No, instead we need a Social Security system Part II. But I don't ...

Educating for Anarchism, Blagnet.net edition

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Mike over at nostate.com has an occasional post entitled Educating for Anarchism, in which he posts real life exchanges of his political beliefs with others. Below, you will find an exchange with my brother in a Facebook message thread (which sadly, is the best means he has of keeping in ...

Hamburgers

Friday, October 24th, 2008

In a valient effort to not be very productive at work on a Friday, I stumbed across a group on Facebook that has a collection of amusing pictures. Like most of my college aged cohorts that populate Facebook, this group is unabashedly pro-Obama. He's the new Jesus, so sayeth the ...

A Question

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

For many of our readers here, it may be surprising to find that I am a veteran. It's not really something I bring up often, and typically when others do, I try to change the subject. I do have a post planned for the near future that addresses some of ...

Welcome Red and Black Readers!

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Welcome esteemed readers of the Red and Black. Undoubtedly, some of you may have stumbled here from an article that was published today in the school paper. If you're interested - though the school actually almost produced my article word for word, for which I thank them - you can ...
