Thoughts That Hurt to Think #064 – America is Not a Democracy!

Quoting other people is not really my thing, for a number of reasons. Certain collections of words get attributed to specific people, and a lot of those quotes go back so far they could not have been recorded anywhere but on paper. Just because someone happened to write some catchy phrase down or utter it in front of others doesn’t mean they actually came up with it; that simply means it got attributed to them. Politicians, in particular, are notorious for speaking other people’s words as if they were their own, and very few speechwriters stand up in the middle of these addresses to claim the applause that actually belongs to them.

Thoughts That Hurt to Think #061 – Life Doesn’t Work If We’re All The Same!

Some of us may think political parties have never been so much at odds as they are today, while others realize people have a tendency to remember the past with less color than they view the present. The truth is that although political parties may have literally switched sides a time or two throughout our country’s relatively short history, they have always been at odds with each other.

Thoughts That Hurt to Think #059 – Tragedy Brings Out The Best In Some Of Us!

Of all the popular archetypes in storytelling, one stands out as being the most popular with the most people. Almost everyone loves a good ‘rags-to-riches’ tale for some reason, even when they know the first few chapters might be a little hard to stomach. In fact, that makes it a better story; the worse the tragedy, the more vindicating the success. Whether it’s a spiritual tale or a love story or an actual poverty to providence example, the heights reached by the hero in the end are made more sweet when we remember the depths they plumbed in the beginning.

Thoughts That Hurt to Think #056 – Minimum Wage Trails Inflation By A Mile!

Unless you count my artistic and business efforts, I’ve only worked for minimum wage one time in my life. I also only belonged to a union once, at the same job. After union dues came out of my check each week, you can technically say I was making less than minimum wage thanks to the union I was required to join if I wanted the job. Once they took taxes out of it, that was a miserable paycheck indeed. What I didn’t realize back then was that I wasn’t accounting for inflation, or how it was affecting my ability to earn and save. I was just happy to see minimum wage jump from $3.35 to $3.80 not long after I got the job, which resulted in a nice little bump in my weekly allowance.

Yeah, I’ve been around awhile. So what? Continue reading “Thoughts That Hurt to Think #056 – Minimum Wage Trails Inflation By A Mile!”
