    The Criminal Justice System Sucks
    April 12, 2014
    The Criminal Justice System Sucks Today I was watching the show Jail and I saw a young lady come in there charged with prostitution. The girl said that she had a drug problem and had been selling her body to feed her addiction. She had a daughter that the state had taken away from her and she had been in and out of jail several times on drug related offenses. The girl said that she was caught in a cycle of using drugs, selling her body to get drugs, getting arrested, getting out and living on the streets, and then doing it all over again. Looking at this girls story just plain confused me, if the person keeps going to jail over and over again then at what point do we decide that jail doesn’t cure addiction? First you say the drugs are illegal and she goes to jail for that and then you say it’s illegal for her to sell her own body so she goes to jail for that. The way I see it this girl hasn’t committed one crime against another person or property but yet she is being carted off to jail over and over again. What the justice system is saying is that they are protecting this girl by not allowing her to sell her body or use drugs. The government is claiming that they are doing her some service by placing her in jail for months on end but in all of this service that the government is claiming to be giving people why is a home not included? I’m not saying that everyone should get a home or have their needs taken care of by the government as a matter of fact I think that most people can and should stand on their own two feet but the problem is that the government feels the need to get involved in a person’s life to a certain point then just leave them hanging. Do you think that this girl couldn’t sell her body for a place to stay if you didn’t make it illegal? If prostitution was like any other 9 to 5 just, would she have lost her child to the state? I have to question if the state is putting people in a better or worse predicament by arresting them for harming themselves. It just feels like they are saying “we care enough to put you in jail but not enough to really help you when you get out.” I say help them all the way or just leave people the hell alone.

    What Has Become of The Holidays
    April 12, 2014
    What Has Become of The Holidays Today, I was on Facebook reading other people’s pages and wondering how much of what I was reading was true and how much was a ploy for sympathy or attention. I looked at some pictures of friends and their kids and read countless posts complaining about everything from traffic to deadbeat dads. What actually caught my attention was something that wasn’t there, something that I had gotten used to seeing around this time of year and had grown to love to hate. Where was all of the blind, crippled, crazy holiday optimism? Where were all of the ridiculous Halloween pictures of three year old dressed as ladybugs and pumpkins? Normally, by this time most people would be talking about going to visit family for Thanksgiving and some people would already be working out their Christmas plans. I found myself torn between appreciation for that fact that I don’t have to see how nice Little Billy looked in his Power Ranger costume and the feeling that the world had changed. The holiday season has changed from a time to be with family members that you can’t really stand and give thanks for the fact that your many hardships didn’t kill you to a time to isolate yourself and gain even more distance from humanity. Why no pictures of Little Billy, because half of the most people have stopped bothering to go trick or treating with their kids. Why no Thanksgiving and Christmas plans with the family, because with the divorce rate being what it is most people don’t even have a family left to go home to.   I used to dread the holidays because it was the only time of the year that I felt nothing was good enough. The job I worked at was sub-par, someone’s relationship status was always better, and hell even the kids became a competition. Seeing family for the holidays can be like crossing the interstate on foot and just trying not to get hit. Even with all of that, the holidays always felt like a time to connect with family and even people that you didn’t know. Hearing stories about another person’s Christmas or Thanksgiving disaster made us all feel a little bit better about our own family. I enjoyed comparing how much candy I got from trick or treat with other people and making fun of how stupid everyone else’s costume was (because whatever I had on had to be cool). Now, look I’m not saying that I will ever be a holiday fanatic but what I am saying is for all of the anxiety, inconvenience and depression that the holidays bring, they also bring us together. Maybe your family does tap dance on your last, hanging nerve and maybe it is easier to just spend the holidays playing video games, watching YouTube and binge eating but what are high calorie foods and mindless entertainment without the people you love to share it with.

    Top 10 Ways to Fail at Anything
    April 12, 2014
    Top 10 ways to Fail at Anything 10. Be the kind of person that focuses on the fact that I started with number ten. Focusing on small things while ignoring the big picture will ensure that you never really see anything. 9. Be sure to alienate your friends and family. You will need these allies in the future and you want to make sure that they are too bitter with past deeds to help you. 8. Start several projects at once never allowing yourself the time to be successful at one before you start another. This will ensure that you never have a chance to build any confidence or learn from mistakes. 7. Make sure that you’re greedy and dishonest in your dealings with everyone. This will ensure that your reputation precedes you and you will only attract other greedy opportunists to any of your endeavors. 6. Inundate yourself with drugs and alcohol keeping you from looking at the world and your personal predicament clearly so that you will never be in danger of solving your core problems and getting on the road to a healthy life. 5. Always being late and unprepared because showing up on times shows commitment and will gain allies that would most likely help you even if you are less than qualified. Being prepared gives you an advantage over others with more talent and is really failure’s kryptonite. 4. Refuse to make new friends, making new friends changes your circle thereby changing the results that you have been getting thus far. You just can’t avoid success if you risk meeting new allies. People know people so by meeting new people you are bound to find someone that can and will help you and that is just not a good way to ensure failure. 3. Don’t you dare enjoy the journey, looking at your journey to your goal as being fulfilling in and of itself gives you energy to go on and makes it far less likely that you will become disenchanted with what you are doing and give up. You must stay in utter misery until you accomplish your goal, pushing everyone away that cares about you and wearing yourself out emotionally so that you will have no energy to attack your opportunities when they come. 2. Surround yourself with negativity at all times, you must be sure to only associate with people that have no dreams and no ability to believe in or encourage yours. Be sure to only tell the people about your dreams that won’t understand them. Make sure that the people you talk to shoot holes in everything that you want to do until you don’t even believe in your dreams any more. You must spend all of your time with complete losers that make you feel that it is normal to be a complete loser also. You must understand that being around positive people and positive situations will give you an infinite amount of energy to draw from and make it almost impossible for you to fail at the things that you are passionate about. 1. This one is most important, if you don’t listen to anything else that I have told you about failing, you must be sure to do this. Never ever forgive yourself for past mistakes. You must allow your past failures to eat away at you and destroy your confidence. You must let your past mistakes cause you to feel that your thoughts and opinions are completely invalid. To ensure absolute failure you must believe that people that have more than you are smarter, funnier and more talented than you are and that the mistakes that you have made in the past are a reflection of how inadequate you are as a human being. You have to really believe that failure is your destiny and those who have achieved before you are actually favored by a higher power and you will never have the ability to overcome your past to have a bright future. If you forgive yourself for your mistakes and realize that they qualify you as an expert in what not to do, then you will realize that through your failure you have become an expert in success, this is completely unacceptable because the loss of confidence is the only thing that makes failures failure. I’m telling you that if you start taking a sober look at the past and begin to believe in yourself again then your mistakes actually give you an advantage over those who never made them and we just can’t have that.   [small]Image courtesy of Sattva / FreeDigitalPhotos.net[/small]

    Should the NBA increase the age limit to 20 years old?
    April 28, 2014
    Should the NBA increase the age limit to 20 years old? Since 2005, the NBA has banned players coming directly from high school to the league. The NBA requires that players complete one year of college before turning pro and now the NBA is trying to increase the requirement so that a player must be at least 20 years old. This decision has placed most fans in two camps, those who think that the NBA requirement is too much and those who feel that it’s not enough. The argument against the college requirement is that players are risking injury in college when they could be playing under a guaranteed NBA contract. Many state that players are not likely to graduate from college and a few years of college experience really isn’t worth the risk of possible injury that comes with it. Most players feel that the choice should be up to the individual player as it is their future at stake. Most people who feel that the college requirement is not enough argue that players are being exploited and countless ballers leave college early only to have their hopes and dreams dashed on the rocks when they go undrafted. Many people argue that most of these players will eventually go broke even if they do make it to the league due to lack of education and money management skills. Even former players admit that having a college education would have benefited them greatly after their departure from the league. Both camps make some really good points and the truth is probably somewhere in the middle but my question is why is it the NBA’s job to care about what’s best for the players? What employer puts the good of their employee’s above that of the company? They made the one year college rule because it benefits the NBA and they are trying to implement the rule that makes the minimum age 20 years old, for the same reason. The bottom line is that the NBA has everything to gain by increasing the age limit and almost nothing to lose. The truth is that NBA teams have been burned by early entries many times in the past. Even many of the players that had success after forgoing college did so after a few years of development and a new team. What NBA teams are looking for is players that can help them now and in the future. Teams don’t want to be forced to gamble on an unproven prospect when they could gather so much more information from watching them perform in a college setting. As it is, teams are forced to use early draft picks on players based on potential gleaned from their performances against overmatched high school opponents and college players who haven’t had much time to figure them out. People like to do their research before they make an investment and the NBA is making a big one in each of these players. The funny thing about the implementation of the higher age requirement is that it won’t only help NBA owners but existing players as well. Now they won’t have to worry about college freshman coming in and taking their spots on the team. As a matter of fact even the college players themselves would benefit from a higher age requirement, if most freshman and sophomores are made ineligible for the draft, juniors and seniors will have far less competition and get a chance to have a year or two in the league that would not have been possible for many. Some college players are good enough to give a team immediate help but don’t possess the “upside” to make teams choose them over their younger, less developed classmates. Sure, players risk injury by playing in college instead of going to the league as quickly as possible. That’s why they have insurance policies for physical health but there are no insurance policies against going to into a man’s game before you are ready and becoming another tragic case for both teams and players to constantly talk about, can we say Kwame Brown or Jonathan Bender?
