A friend of mine shared this video on FaceBook and I was hesitant to even watch. In this video, Steven Crowder, attempts to explain the tax system to children with their Halloween candy. This video is meant to show children that if you work hard for your candy, you can still have it taken away and given to someone with less candy, even though you may have worked harder for yours. While this may have been a clever idea, you must also take into consideration where the children are trick or treating…
What if some kids had gone to hundreds of houses that no longer gave out candy; Did they not still work hard? No, they did work hard, but didn’t reap any of the benefits. Yet, there are some kids who have parents that take them to the rich neighborhoods or LIVE in the rich neighborhoods. The kids that work hard in these higher end neighborhoods will most likely get a lot of candy. Also, the kids in these neighborhoods that don’t work as hard will probably still get candy. I feel this is a better representation of our tax system. Some people are more fortunate than others and have a better opportunity of ensuring their wealth and/or candy. Just because the skit makes it seem black and white doesn’t necessarily mean it is.
I can’t say I’m too shocked that Crowder was the creator of this video, especially considering his ABOUT ME section on YouTube:

This was eloquently titled “How To Traumatize Your Friend For Life”
As many of you may already know, I am an Atheist. This doesn’t mean I dislike people who are religious, the same as I don’t dislike Conservatives (Republicans), just disagree with some of their opinions. I have many friends and family members who believe in religion and although I think it’s harmful to society, I would never disrespect them for coming to a different conclusion than I have come to on my own. But, seeing as I am a passionate person, I like to share what I believe with others, urge them to think differently and open their minds. I encourage myself to do the same, which just so happens to be the reason I have come to this conclusion.
A friend of mine, Anastasia, wrote something the other day that I found to be pretty great. I asked her if I could share it here and would like to know what some of you think, as well as express my support for everything that was said. I have shared it exactly as it was written below:
“I’ll tell you what else is on my mind. I recently watched the episode of “Louie” where, as a child, he attends a Catholic school and the teacher brings in a doctor to explain, from a medical stand point, the process of Jesus’ crucifixion. It’s brutal and horrific, and the best piece of mind-fuckery out there. How in the world does the idea that one man being physically tortured cancels out the “sins” of the world? (more on “sins” later. okay right now- not raping people is not one of the ten commandments. not using the lord’s name in vain is. uhm. what.?) Really think about that. More importantly, think about how many people have been physically/mentally/
I know that many people are getting tired of the political and religious posts that are on Twitter, FaceBook, etc; But personally, I think it’s great that our generation is becoming so involved and choosing to think for ourselves as opposed to just take what was told to us, as truth. Granted, there are definitely many people who still do this, it’s great to know that thanks to the advancement in social media, our generation is able to meet people who share the same views, values, morals, etc. and are open to discussing how they could be right and/or wrong.
Thank you Anastasia for allowing me to share your message and I hope others can see the humanity in your words as opposed to the “religious attack” you made “against” them.

UPDATE: MONDAY, September 24th at 12:05 PM – This photo is getting A LOT of attention on FaceBook. If you’d like to read comments or join in on the debate, please visit here!
The remarks that were made by Mitt Romney the other day have made quite an impact, especially in regards to his campaign. Unfortunately, he managed to infuriate the 47% that he was speaking about, considering that most everything that came out of his mouth was a fabrication. As stated above in the photo, many people who work and pay their taxes are still voting for Obama due to his stance on strengthening the middle class and giving every hard-working American an opportunity to succeed in this country and make a name for themselves. Mr. Romney is too far detached from the middle class to even know anything about what kind of work we do or how little we use the government, despite our need to do so.
The American Dream is slowly growing from beyond our grasp, because it’s financially impossible for us to make the necessary moves to get ourselves ahead. Luckily, we don’t take for granted what we do have and continue fighting for our dream no matter what bigoted politician gets in our way and tries to inhibit us. Obama has my vote and hopefully the majority of this country’s as well!
FCKH8.com has released a video that is encouraging people to take a stand against the homophobic Chick-Fil-A, yet, are worried it may get removed.
Yesterday FCKH8.com received a legal notice from Facebook saying that the Chick-Fil-A legal team has forced them to pull this protest video from Facebook because it used their logo. Use of a copyrighted logo in criticism, commentary, review or news is legally protected free speech. Chick-Fil-A is trying silence protests of their homophobic positions. They may try to get this video pulled from YouTube and Vimeo as well. Share it on Facebook or copy it (from our Vimeo page) & reupload the video to your YouTube or Vimeo account.
This chain has openly encouraged homophobia and refused to acknowledge that their beliefs are outdated and reminiscent of the 1960′s. Boston, Massachusetts Mayor, Tom Menino, has even banned the restaurant from their city to show how they will not support this message of hate. Another big proponent to come out and publicly shame Chick-Fil-A has been the Jim Henson Company, by no longer partnering The Muppets with the gay hating, religious loving, fast food chain.
“The bullies at Big Gay have targeted the ‘Eat Mor Chikin‘ chain because its president, Dan Cathy, has taken an unapologetic public stand on behalf of natural marriage, and rebuked this generation for its “arrogance” in thinking that it knows better than God when it comes to the definition of marriage,” Fischer wrote. “And so the heterophobic bigots at Big Gay have come unhinged and unleashed the dogs of war.”
War? I’m not the one going into OTHER countries and forcing democracy and taking what’s not mine. I am simply asked to be treated as a decent human being who will not be judged based on their sexuality. I don’t want someone with money, influence and power to take advantage and sway others into fucking logic and being ignorant. In the bible there are many ways which show what “natural marriage” is and I can guarantee that we do not live our lives like that today. Jon Stewart read out some bible versus the other night on ‘The Daily Show‘ that I thought were perfect examples:
