The USA was NEVER a Democracy

The USA was NEVER a Democracy

This is one of my biggest irritations with the general population. I know it’s clearly an educational issue, but it drives me so completely insane to hear people saying it -all the time- and everywhere. It doesn’t seem to matter who is saying it, people off the street, news anchors, politicians, businessmen, teachers, they all get it wrong.

If you don’t believe me just ask yourself when the last time you heard someone on television talking about how we are such a great Republic. The presidential election period is probably the most news heavy period that exists every four years, do you remember anyone talking about a Constitutional Republic?

Let’s Talk Election Fraud

Let’s Talk Election Fraud

It is, according to pretty much every Democrat that I know, something which is the hallmark tactic of the Republican party. They strongly believe that these horrible Republican corruptions must be ended before Republicans ruin what little is left of the democratic election process. Funny, since Republicans think the same thing about Democrats, but Democrats believe that their people don’t do these sorts of things, being so much more elevated and evolved (deluded?) you know.

I think they’ve got a pretty excellent message to get across, and that is that girls often don’t have the confidence they should have.

Thankfully Distant Relations

Thankfully Distant Relations

I’m not a big ‘William the Conqueror’ fan. Yes, probably some of you out there wouldn’t care in the least about some guy who died over 900 years ago, but I do. We’re related, and I happen to believe that people are a little bit of all their ancestors.

Now I’m a direct line to Charlemagne, my 38th great-grandfather, and I don’t see that as a negative. Well, the biggest downside is that everyone seems to be related to him and I’m just not that much of a people lover. But William… well, I just can’t get over that Doomsday Book thing.

Week of Humility

Week of Humility

I have been in the technology field a long time. As in, I wrote my first computer program when I was five years old on an old Commodore 64.

I’m not going to go into a list of the things I have done in technology, mostly because I hate bragging. Plus it would be the height of hypocritical to do that in a post about humility. Let’s just summarize it as ‘extensive and almost always cutting edge.’
