Clinton Kaine

My (Negative) Thoughts on Tim Kaine

I dislike Tim Kaine. In fact, I despise Tim Kaine. If I had to put all of the contenders of Clinton’s VP shortlist in a list of my own, I would have put Tim Kaine in last place by a mile. He, despite what the media is trying to beat into the news, is NOT a progressive. He’s far from it. He just recently changed his course on the TPP, has been campaigning for bank deregulation, and is yet another thing wrong with Clinton’s campaign.

Hillary Clinton: STOP GOING RIGHT

If Trump stays “to the left” of Clinton on foreign policy and trade – even if he’s lying through his fucking teeth about his platform (which he is) – he will win the election. Many Democrats have a God Complex going on right now. They think Clinton against Trump will be a cakewalk. As multiple polls have shown, it’s going to be a back and forth. Hillary Clinton, don’t be link your logo: don’t go to the right.

HMS Pinafore

H.M.S. Pinafore: Plot Summary and Analysis

The H.M.S. Pinafore, also known as The Lass That Loved a Sailor, is a comic opera which was first presented at London’s Opera Comique on May 25th, 1878. It should be relevant to discuss how successful this play was during its original running, having exactly 571 performances before fading off the stage – making it the second-longest running of a musical theatre piece at the time. The fourth collaboration between Gilbert and Sullivan, H.M.S. Pinafore was their first international sensation and eventually becoming one of the most intriguing plays of the era.

Book Review: A History of the Wife

A History of the Wife is one of the best sociological works containing immense historical attributes and impactful perspectives that stuck with me from beginning to end. From the biblical tales of Adam and Eve to the late 1990’s representation of Hillary Clinton, author Marilyn Yalom drew records of historical significance and combined them with written analysis. A senior scholar at the Institute for Women and Gender at Stanford University (as of 2002), Marilyn Yalom obviously is an expert in the sociological constructs of gender and the passion for understanding the “roles” of husband and wife are blatantly obvious through every page.

The Likert Scale

I know this is a little late in terms of technology and updates, but if you’re on Facebook you’ve noticed that the traditional “like” system has replaced itself with an optional range of emoticons. From “like” to “love” to “haha”, “wow”, “sad”, and “angry”; this new system allows interaction between social media aficionados to be more complex than ever before. It’s more than obvious why Facebook turned to this new system: a major flaw that’s plagued simple conversation since the beginning of instant messaging. Users have been forced to “like” messages coming from grieving widows and cancer patients. A bit of an, erm, awkward experience from both sides if you really think about it.

Love in Our Society

Romantic love is not an ancient relic or social construct from long ago. Most historical societies, as recognized through works of traditional recollection, didn’t experience love as modern western society experiences it today. The formation of families were never witnessed in a loving relationship turning to fruition with engagement and cohabitation. It was something based on the formality of marriage, often arranged. People were not allowed to choose who they were going to marry, with romantic adventures being nonexistent up until in the very least the early 1800s.
