Are We Getting Less Girl Scouts Cookies For Our Money?

One problem I have with all food distributors is, they tendency to shrink portions rather than raise prices. Your local vending machine is the best example of this where you get a bag of air with a few chips in it for $75.  It seems the Girl Scouts are not exempt from this either, but it's very hard to get solid answers.

Metallica Was Right About Illegal Downloading

Sometimes I have to write a blog just because responding to stuff on the Internet hurts my brain. At issue is someone still pissed that "Metallica killed Napster." First off, how long has that stick been up your ass? 14 years?

It’s Time For A New Group To Step Up And Exercise Their Right To Vote

Let's start by throwing away some labels here. Liberal, conservative, mean whatever. They are little compartments that politicians and the media like to throw people into.  I don't believe anyone truly belongs 100% to either group.  It is time we get back to voting for candidates based on the issues and not based on what party they belong to.  When you vote straight up party without looking into the issues, you're just feeding a machine that was built to work for somebody else.

You Will Never Be Rich As Long As The Rich Have Anything To Do With It

USA Today is reporting that we are near the tipping point where the top 1% of all of the rich people are richer than the rest of us combined.  This is not an economic system that's good for anyone, other than that 1%.  It also means it's even harder for the poorest of the poor.
