Income Tax or Flat Tax, Sin Tax, Luxury Tax

January 6, 2015 in Economics, Government, Home

Taxes are more than just a way for a government to raise revenue; they are also a deterrent, like fines. We tax labor, heavily. Labor should never be discouraged, especially as jobs continue to be lost to more efficient mechanical or computer processes. We need to make human labor more […]

Creative Creatures

February 5, 2014 in Blog, Home, Tech vs. Labor

I was raised Christian. In College as an engineering major and lover of science, I became Atheist but quickly realized I was really Agnostic. I could not claim to be wise enough to say that we were not created. We could be someone’s science experiment, because we would do the […]

Vegans, Vegetarians, Ancient Christians, and Greatest Minds

November 27, 2013 in Blog, Health, Home

Some of the greatest minds that ever existed were vegan. It’s a smart thing to do for yourself and for our planet/culture. Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. ~ Albert Einstein Our task […]

How do your purchases affect employment?

November 1, 2013 in Home, Tech vs. Labor

In many of my other posts I explain the effects of automation and technological unemployment. Everyday people imagine ways to lay off massive amounts of people in the pursuit of profits.

Free Democratic Republic Political Party

October 16, 2013 in Government, Home

Elect an FDR candidate and you’ll be able to vote on every bill in Congress. Instead of debating over the two parties, debate of the real issues and vote. Politicians rarely listen to us anyways. An FDR candidate has the easiest job  in the world, they’re just ceremonial. Kinda like […]

In 30 years 70% of our jobs will be replaced by machines. Everyday companies are finding ways to replace workers with machines and software. It’s a competitive business world and low skilled American workers are having a hard time keeping up with algorithms and efficient mechanical processes.  So, when one company in […]

Greenhouses for Welfare

August 31, 2012 in Economics, Health, Home

Everyone in America can agree that welfare, while well intention,  can be abused. Without welfare there would be vast starvation and homelessness in America, so we can’t just pull out the rug, but welfare doesn’t offer the right incentives and teaches the individual nothing practical. Even the source of the money, other […]
