A Few Of My Favorite Things

Headphones-2

Music

Ever since my teenage years music has been one of my greatest passions. In high school I started a record label to help my friends record and promote their music. I am still a huge music fan and try to attend shows as frequently as possible.

Tattoos

Tattoos are a huge part of my identity as I've been going under the needle since I was 16 years old. love the idea of permanent art and the history and heritage of the tattoo culture. Most of my tattoos are designed like old school Americana tattoos.
Bicycle

Sports

Living in Boulder is great because I can ride my bike and hike in the summer as well as snowboard and snowshoe in the winter. Aside from the sports I like to play I also like to play fantasy football with my friends and host a podcast about it.
Computer

Marketing

Despite my degree in economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder I have always been interested in marketing. After learning from my failures in marketing as an accidental entrepreneur I have dedicated myself to excelling at marketing.

If I were offered to be hung or to be shot, I’d choose to live

False Dichotomy – a logical fallacy in which there are only two options considered when more options exist. Sound familiar? Who will you be voting for this year? I have resisted making this post for years (between my various blogs), and now it is more important then ever as important as always (don’t be fooled by appeals to importance to undermine your decision making) to understand the trap that is American politics. I could write an entire book on this so I will use formatting to keep it short.

  • Politicians only say what the voter wants to hear despite their personal beliefs as a means to get elected
  • This leads to the candidates moving towards the middle of the political spectrum where the majority of the voters are, this is called the median voter theorem
  • This also leads to candidates saying anything and everything that the majority wants to hear, they are mostly empty promises (all under the guise of being benevolent)
  • This leads to the social construction that there only two options
  • When there are two options presented to you, both of which are unsatisfactory you will choose “the lesser of two evils” instead of seeking out what will actually satisfy you
  • This allows the two parties in the majority to then converge into one party, while maintaining the image of separation
  • This leads to the parties (and politicians within them) getting what they want despite who is elected and all they have to do is pretend to be different with their empty promises leading up to the election

This is the circle that is padding the wallets of the gentlemen in congress wearing suits in their mansions (or in McCain’s case 7 homes), taking vacation in July while the housing market takes another hit. It is a similar system that keeps women out of politics, board rooms, and below the glass ceiling. I will only give one supporting piece of evidence although like I said, there’s a books worth. George Washington, our first president, is the only president in American history to be independent.
