Why did Rand Paul cross the road?

His hair piece blew off in the wind.

White Privilege is voting against your economic interests

You do because you believe that non-Whites are inferior and any assistance programs in education, health care, housing, mass transit, etc. only serve to degrade your status as a White person while elevating the status of the non-White person.

IOW, living under economic hardship and turmoil is preferable to seeing an African American get a decent education or be able to get healthcare. White, non-college educated, lower economic class, American males ARE THE group that gives Republicans their power. What draws them to the Republicans is their stance against the expansion of government to help the poor, the working, and the middle classes.

This demographic group understands that there are indeed benefits to being a White male, and government is a direct threat to that privilege.

Do you know? Do you know? Do you know?

Apple should be sued over the data leak

Data security is their responsibility. They made the app with a security fault.

When you hack into someone's personal data storage, you should be jailed as if you broke into...

someone's home and took their personal belongings.

Just because it's online, that doesn't mean that it's fair game for stealing.

CNNFN: Shrink Wealth Gap by Getting Poor People to Buy Homes

I shit you not:


A recent report from the Census Bureau found that the median wealth of the poorest 20% of American households was negative $6,029 in 2011, compared with negative $905 a decade ago. If we want to reverse this trend and narrow the wealth gap, we need a better path to homeownership for low-income families.

To shrink the wealth gap, pay people more money. Period. Stop playing finance games with housing.

Morals are based on empathy not religion

I'm sick and tired of hearing religious people say that religion is the reason for morality in our world, and without it, people can do whatever they to whoever they want. That's why after school shootings, people like Mike Huckabee blame taking God out of the classroom.

I find this argument ridiculous. We've seen devoutly religious people commit all manner of horrific acts from child rape to beheadings. Religion does not create morality, empathy does.

When you care about the physical, emotional, health, and well-being of other people, then you have the basis of being a moral person. If you empathize and feel sorry for someone who was robbed, then you're not likely to rob someone else.

Am I wrong here?
