What am I Without the Bruises?

What am I Without the Bruises?

I think a lot of people look back on their lives and wish they could erase all the bad things.  Wish that life was just a series of happy memories and experiences.  I know there are a few things I wish I could go back and change.  Thing I wish I had never done or said.  Places I wish I had avoided at the right time.  We all have bruises from life, some of us even have scars, but that is what makes us who we are.

Heading to War Means Good Music

I try my best not to follow the news, but the news seems to follow me.  As hard as I try to stay out of everything I just can’t.  Maybe it’s the reddit posts that make it to the front page (and the fact that I can’t be bothered to make an account and unsubscribe from defaults), maybe it’s my Facebook feed full of articles, maybe it’s a morbid interest, but I can’t avoid it.  I used to follow the news a lot closer but I got sick of it, it only made me anxious and worried and didn’t inform me like the news media is supposed to do.

Fake News: I don’t know what’s Real Anymore

I was originally going to write a post about privacy in the digital age.  I was going to rant and rave about how “having nothing to hide” is not an excuse to ignore your privacy, but I think the topic of fake news is more important. Continue reading →

Arresting People for Speech

Arresting People for Speech

Should someone get arrested for something they say?  The short answer is: it depends.  If someone says they are going to commit an act of terrorism or a crime then yes, they probably should be arrested as a precaution.  Investigate them a little and make sure there is no actual credible threat.  That really is the only time that someone should be arrested for what they say.  The reason I bring this up is because recently another person in Canada was arrested for hate speech.
