13th **1/2 Most of us can agree that it is bad for a society to have too many people behind bars. And it is a sad fact that the United States is the worst culprit. We have the largest prison population in world history. What we may not be able to agree on is how it came to be this way. I have a basic theory. I call it: “build it and they will come....

We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists **** A lot of you still don’t think that political correctness is a huge problem. That is understandable. You also don’t think that it is a problem that you don’t own a Thestleblower All-Cure device. You don’t miss owning a Thestleblower All-Cure device because it is a thing that doesn’t exist. You don’t...

Snowden ** “Edward Snowden is a traitor because he promised to protect government secrets but he released them instead.” This is undeniable logic. But it ignores the bigger question. Why does the United States government have so many secrets? I think I could run our entire foreign policy with one major change, one honest mission statement, and zero...

The Fantastical World of Hormones ***1/2 When we are feeling good, we tend to credit ourselves. We think we are healthy because we’ve unlocked the secret to eating well, sleeping well, staying active, and giving up bad habits. The truth, however, is that good health is often as lucky as it is fleeting. There are aspects of your body that are out of...

Saudi Arabia Uncovered **** You probably would stop being friends with someone if you discovered that he is a truly horrible person, especially if you discovered that he was secretly executing people for speaking their minds and systematically subjugating every woman in his life. You would probably stop being friends with someone if you discovered...

Prescription Thugs ***1/2 It won’t be long before marijuana is legal in almost every part of the United States. Politicians will bravely vote to legalize it because they care about freedom and public safety. Hahahahahahaha. Sorry. Sorry. Only joking. The real reason marijuana will be legal is money. The pot dispensaries in Colorado and Washington a...

The Trials of Muhammad Ali ***1/2 We in America don’t expect all that much from our professional athletes. But we do expect patriotism. Heaven help you if you don’t demonstrate patriotism. As a pro athlete, you’re allowed to beat people up on the field, off the field, and even in your home and all is forgiven pretty quickly. You can be a known drug...

[History Book Review] The Columbian Exchange (1972) By Alfred W. Crosby Jr. **** Thank you to our legislature and to the Vermont Retail Grocers Association for mandating that companies label all foods that contain GMOs. Thanks to this new practice, we will certainly be saved from the ill-health and certain doom of consuming food products that have...

China vs. USA: Empires at War **1/2 They have 1.4 billion people. Two hundred nuclear warheads. The largest industrial economy. And an unquenchable desire to be the world’s #1 superpower. A showdown is inevitable. World War III. The United States vs. China. I absolutely do not believe that. China is our economic rival, not our enemy. I am certain t...

Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party ** The most confusing letters in our language are (D) and (R). When there is a (D) or an (R) next to a person’s name, it makes it impossible for otherwise smart people to make an accurate judgement of them. Or to even be able to hear what they are saying. I mean, Red Sox fans hate the Ya...
