Obama's Faulty Plan for Jobs

Whenever elections draw near, I find myself contemplating the legitimacy of all of the candidates; Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative. As sad as it may be, it feels as though no politicians can be fully trusted anymore.

The people who we solely rely on to protect our freedoms can barely be honest with us? Shameful, in my opinion. Continue reading

South Korean Men and Mail Order Brides

One of the benefits of being a consultant is the exposure to many different industries.  To be honest, I get lead feet if I’m forced to stay exclusive to an industry too long.  Nothing is more exciting the jumping down the rabbit hole of a new type of business.  This was eve true when we brought on a client in the mail order bride space.

Not-So-Super Star Overdose

It seems all the buzz today is about Amy Winehouse; a British singer who died today at around 4pm. Winehouse was at the ripe age of 27.

Overall the company hasn’t had the greatest public view, and would probably be better off liquidating their remaining stores anyways. Continue reading

Thoughts on New Jersey Banning the Death Penalty

I spent a lot of my years with fairly conservative views, at least when it came to financial and international affairs. But I have always had two core beliefs that kept me distanced from the title of right wing. First, I’m pro-choice. I, like I imagine most people, would not vote for someone I knew was going to attempt to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

Second, I’m anti-death penalty. This belief has gotten me into the most passionate of arguments. People often think that when one doesn’t believe in the death penalty, that they also don’t believe some people deserve to die. That is simply not true. In fact I think there are crimes that people should die for that are not even legally considered capitol offenses. Continue reading
