Why The Popular Vote Doesn’t Matter

Some that are not happy with the election results are trying to present the case that the Electoral College isn’t a fair system and that it disenfranchises voters. Usually this argument is presented when a candidate wins the Electoral College but doesn’t win the popular vote which happened in the 2016 Election between Trump and Clinton.

Thou Shalt Not Lie…Sometimes

Over my years I have been exposed to many extenuating circumstances where I honestly felt that being honest was not the right thing to do because the brutal implications of that honesty were more severe than if I had just been dishonest in the first place.

Hiking Can Be Therapeutic

The sudden changes in weather patterns, physical intensity, and elevation make hiking one of the toughest challenges both mentally and physically. It is an activity where you can always expect the unexpected and no matter how hard you try to prepare for it, sometimes you find something unexpected — which you should already be expecting….

Only God Can Judge You

If you find yourself saying to others that only “God can judge you” then you probably are well aware that your life is kind of fucked up or that the things you are doing are a little bit questionable. Whenever I hear someone say this phrase I kind of have a face-palm reaction.

WARNING: If you’ve ever received a loan or borrowed money it could be used against you in the court of law.

You’re Not That Special

The adversities you face in life were intricately designed for just you. You may think your revelations and transformations are relevant to others and feel so strongly about them that you must tell as many people as possible because it could change their life as it has changed yours.

We The People are Entitled to the Money You Make

There is not a single “wealth” generating activity on this planet that isn’t tied to the use of a natural resource. We do not use our brains to think money into reality and even if we did, that paper or money had to come from somewhere. Even if your brain could digitally create money it…

Stop Making Excuses, Start Making Progress

The word “excuse” has taken a bad rap and is oftentimes misunderstood. It is frowned upon or even considered offensive to some people.

The Meaning of Love Yourself by Justin Bieber

I really enjoy some of Justin Bieber’s new music. His lyrics seem to be gaining more depth and meaning as he advances further into adulthood. Even though some of the lyrics in this song are kind of immature and “high schoolish” we can still find meaning and relate to the scenarios described in the lyrics…
