I don't believe in isms, ists or ologies. Labels, however, can sometimes be useful. A lot of the problems in society would be solved if people were properly labeled. Stereotypes are partially based in truth. Don't kid yourself, you know I'm right. Where do you think they came from? Thin air? Think again. Jokes are simply societally accepted ways to ridicule people. If someone makes fun of you and then says, "I was only kidding," no, they weren't. They meant it. The joke is simply the tasty cream filling used to mask the harsh taste of reality. Sarcasm is king. If you can't mock it, then why is it there in the first place?

The word stupid just doesn't cut it anymore. It's not strong enough. Certain actions are so beyond stupid that they need a different word to describe them. Idiotic? Nope. Moronic? Nah. Retar - not gonna go there.We need to come up with a new word altogether. A word that we can use when someone does something so dumb that it breaks all laws of logic, reason and rational thought. So what action has sparked this need for a new word? Is it Tiger Woods cheating on his model wife with chicks that look like Spearmint Rhino rejects? No. Is it Charlie Sheen being Charlie Sheen? Nope. Those guys look…

There are two things that teenagers make the news for doing - something good or something bad. Leon Orr and Lynden Trail did neither. They didn't make national headlines. They didn't get interviewed by Oprah. They barely made the second page of a college sports column. But the fact they are news at all, is news itself. What did these two do? They took a picture. Of course, it's never that simple. These days a picture doesn't go away. With the Internet, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and the fact that every cell phone has a camera, a picture is truly worth a 1,000 words. Or…

America may be about second chances, but lately it seems that we're
more about making excuses. Excuses for our politicians, excuses for our
celebrities, and excuses for our own actions. While the 80's may be
remembered for excess and the 90's for apathy, the 2000's will go down
in history as the decade of the excuse.
"Well, we thought there were weapons of mass destruction." Good one.
"I used bad judgment." This has become nearly as common as LOL.
"I was depressed." Who isn't?
"I'm not perfect." Well, why not?
This last one is my particular favorite. It's like the
one-size-fits-all excuse. It…
