A Most Powerful Statement

I don’t know.

Sometimes this can be the most powerful, insightful and honest statement of all.

I don’t know.

I don’t know what happens when we die. I don’t know if these is something beyond what we can see and measure with science. I don’t know if I have a soul or if the concept of a soulmate is a true thing. Far too many people spread certainty when they simply don’t know. They tell us that when we die we’ll be whisked off to a magical place full of puffy clouds, pearly gates and old guys with long beards and iPads full of every mundane thing we’ve ever done.

Perspective on the Tea Party – 4/15/10 in Washington, D.C.

"Granny is not shovel ready"

"A village in Kenya is missing it's idiot"

Well, I’m back from Washington, D.C. and the Tea Party rally on April 15th was… tame. I never heard racial slurs, and I didn’t see homophobic, racist or bigoted signs. What I did see was a number of people out to protest “high taxes”, “socialist government” and Obama in general. Overall, it was a peaceful protest of people exercising their first amendment right of assembly. However, I would like to point out that while they have the right to protest, they are often protesting factually inaccurate information. For example, income taxes for the middle class are at one of the the lowest levels in the last 50 years. Protesters suggesting that 95% of Americans didn’t get a tax cut under Obama are dead wrong.

A New Way Forward

Every so often, there comes a time when it is necessary for new ideas to challenge the old. A time when the edifices of the past should be swept away to make room for new ways of thinking, new approaches to problems and new perspectives as has happened countless times in history.

They once said that the Earth was flat. Explorers and scientists proved that it was round. Continue reading

A Donkey at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

April 15th. Tax Day and Tea Party Rallies.

Since the Head Teabaggers will be migrating toward Washington, D.C. (see above for the video of this event), I guess I should do the same. I’ll be going not as a member of the Tea Party but as an observer. Political movements by their very nature are dynamic and filled with views and voices. I intend to hear some of these voices and gain a personal perspective on the movement. As they say, the best stories are often personalized stories and these experiences can be used towards another one of my projects. Continue reading

April Fool’s!

HAHAHAH! What a great day! Great laughs and great fun!

A short chronicle of the day’s hard-core conservative Republican attitude:

Obama bad. Rush good. Palin = Amazing! Drill baby drill! ♥ ♥ $$$. Stop mooching. No insurance? Don’t get sick. Rich only rich because we’re smart and work hard. Poor people just lazy. We’ll find the WMD’s. China evil except when they loan us money. “No” until 2012. Repeal the bill. That is all. http://www.facebook.com/brian.wells?v=feed&story_fbid=10100370050128391&ref=mf
Brian Wells is tired of all these unpatriotic liberals whining about freedom of speech, invasion of privacy, limits on health coverage, etc. Sick? Then get a job, buy insurance and stay healthy while you wait for things to be covered! Maybe you should have thought about those genes before you were conceived and you wouldn’t now have a genetic disorder. So stop being lazy and mooching off me. http://www.facebook.com/brian.wells?v=feed&story_fbid=10100369856276871&ref=mf
After 4 years of research and development, I’m pleased to announcement that my long-awaited army of ill-tempered super dolphins is ready. We couldn’t get the head-mounted lasers to work but the flipper-mounted plasma cannons do just fine. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=66260291&id=2004912&comments&ref=mf
I’ve agreed to take a consulting job with the conservative think tank AEI. Consultations will be done over the phone and email so I don’t even have to move. I’ll be working on the economic benefits of regulation-free banking, studying ways to run solar plants with coal and oil and lobbying to repeal health care reform and replace it with a reality show where contestants compete for insurance coverage. http://www.facebook.com/brian.wells?v=feed&story_fbid=107089942659163&ref=mf

While being a Republican was fun, it’s time to return to my liberal Democrat ways. 364 more days until I get to join the GOP ranks once again!

I Can Finally Say It

It feels good to finally come to terms with what I believe. I’ve tried to hide it for so long, acting like I believe in liberal ideas, pretending to care about the environment and global warming, believing in the unity of humanity. Now, I can finally admit it.

I’m a hard-core conservative Republican!

I have an autographed 5×7 of Ronald Reagan on my desk.

I dream of one day getting my book signed by Karl Rove and shaking the hand of Dick Cheney.

I think people should realize companies only have our best interests at heart. When we try to regulate them, we keep them from being best able to help us.

It feels good to finally come clean and stop pretending. Hopefully, the next time I have a revelation in my life, it won’t take me decades to realize it.
