A Micor Soft Lottery?

Written by Rage on . Posted in The Other Slices

I hear the faint beeping sound from my Blackberry while I'm in the shower, notifying me I received new e-mail. Fifteen minutes later, I pick up my little window to the world and notice an e-mail from "micor soft". I ask myself "When did Microsoft start misspelling and adding spaces to their corporate name?" Furthermore, what kind of idiot at Microsoft would simply add only "Kindly Open The Attached File" in the body of the message?

Independent Women

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

You are an Independent Woman. You are strong, intelligent, and self-preserving. You do not need anyone to take care of you, be it family, friends, boyfriend or girlfriend. Along the path of the woman's transformation or growth from traditional "Housewife" to modern Miss Independent USA, something got lost during the process.

Socialism is Bad, Sharing also Bad?

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

As some of you may know, I am a Republican. I am not the far-right conservative who spew crap like the Ten Commandments placards have a place in schools along with prayer or that if you can't speak English you must be deported out this country (although I think you SHOULD learn it). Conservatives have lately thrown the word Socialism around like there is no tomorrow (in their belief, there won't be unless President Obama is kicked out). This mud throwing has finally landed close to home. Not in the form of discussion with another adult but at the time an unapparent attempt of an eight-year linking parental rules with Socialism.

Does money equal happiness?

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

An age old question that has probably been asked since the dawn of currency, can money buy happiness? Most people will say no, but let's dive into the concepts behind the question. Money does make the world go around and without it, we'll be back to bartering (I'll give you two chickens for a box of cigars). I will even argue that money is so entrenched into modern society that like the subtraction of computing technology, the world would come to a standstill. Money has its advantages and disadvantages, more so than any other modern convenience.

Cops Hate Being Videotaped.

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

If it is one thing cops hate the most, it is being videotaped. Ever since the Rodney King tape highlighted the corrupted cops’ love of excessive force, the camera has been their enemy. During my travels around Connecticut, I shoot a lot of video. Most of the time the video ends up on the cutting board, trashed never to be seen. I shoot everything; you never know when something amazing and/or crazy will happen.

Free Enterprise

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

What group of people distinguish Free Enterprise (capitalism) and the "American way of life" from Totalitarianism, Socialism or Communism?

Businessmen!...All the other social groups -- farmers, professional men, factory workers, scientists, teachers, government workers, soldiers etc. -- exist under dictatorships; even though they exist in terror, in chains, in misery, and in progressive self-destruction. But, there is NO SUCH group as businessmen under a dictatorship. Their place is taken by armed thugs: by politicians, bureaucrats and commissars.

The B.M. Differences (Part One: Women)

Written by Frank R on . Posted in The Other Slices

What sets the black man of America a part from any other culture, race or ethnic group? If you go by the stereotypes that dominate the perception of others of the black man, you would think we are nothing more than an ugly blemish on America. For years, the black man had to fight not only the stereotypes and lack of equality but its own inability to break out of the entrapment of the mind.
