    What The Frick is an INFJ?

    The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator is an introspective self-report questionnaire with the purpose of indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions. The MBTI was created by Isabelle Briggs and her mother and was influenced by Carl Jungs theory that humans experience the world using four principal psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking. Those dominate functions often relate to how we think, feel, understand things.  Some feel these determinations are vague and self applied like astrological signs and descriptions. Whether you believe in it or not, my Aries description is very much an accurate description of me and the INJF determination I…

    Super Controversy

    I don’t watch Super-bowls and I don’t have any interest in half time shows but I have a strong opinion on dress code hypocrisy. 2004 Super Bowl is infamous for the wardrobe malfunction heard around the world. The world went berzerk over a female nipple exposed on live TV. I’m a fairly modest person and I am not bothered by seeing a woman’s breast, especially not by accident. I support a woman’s right to breastfeed uncovered. I support equality in dress codes. Last night Adam Levine, who I had no idea existed, went topless during the half time show. I only know of this because of an article I read…

    Pro Choice and Pro Life

    I have always been opposed to abortion. I’ve also been mostly opposed to abortion laws. I don’t think someone else has the right to decide delicate reproductive choices for others. However, I do feel that we need more education and compassion when dealing with such matters. A few days ago NY state passed a law that granted a woman permission to end the life of her unborn child at any stage of pregnancy, if the life of the child or mother was in danger. I tried to avoid the newsfeeds, because it’s an upsetting topic and most conversations are useless, but it was still on my mind. I did make…

    Another Brick In the Wall

    I use to be a statist. I remember cheering for big government to push for more laws to make us safer after 9/11. Since then I have come to understand that the government is the biggest threat to our freedoms. I use to be a supporter for strong borders. I don’t anymore,  I’m the polar opposite. I support open borders. I see various arguments for a border wall. I disagree with most of them. Conservatives will say “well why don’t you just invite them into your home then” proving they have no understanding of private property rights vs public property. We have a lot of issues with conservatives not understanding property…

    Always the Weird Kid

    Wirh the elections this past week I’ve had a pit in my stomach. I hate it. I don’t like this pretend patriotism and false sense of freedom. All I can see is people clamoring to control me.  Control others. And it sucks. It’s one of the most agregios acts of bullying. I am always the weird kid. I’m always the odd one. I’m always going to be in the minority. And I don’t mind really. Except the fact that others have voted themselves the authority to tell me I can’t be me. Looking at some of the issues on the ballots locally and nationwide I’m seeing our rights being eroded.…

    Jesus and Me

    I was raised in a home with a Catholic mother who was active in the church and a Baptist father who was not. As far back as I can remember I disliked church. In my home it was used as an intimidation tool. I never listened to a sermon that resonated with me. I never felt the spirt. At least I don’t recall. I suppose the fact that I don’t reaffirms how I felt about religion in my youth. I just never gave it any thought. I was forced to attend church until I was big enough to stand my ground and refuse. I think I was 14-15. I didn’t…

    Story of Your Enslavement

    When people think of enslavment they have a limited view of slavery is. They think whips and chains. They think minorities and white slave masters. That was our nations history, so it’s not usual for that to be people’s first thoughts, but they seem to stop there. Slavery has stages. Robert Nozik writes about this in the  Tale of the Slave. Slavery was never abolished, it just evolved. I think this little presentation was well made. I think I first came across it in 2012, when I first started listening to Stefan Molyneux. I don’t agree with some of his philosophies but he was on of my early influences from…

    Consent

    There has been a lot of talk about consent in social media this week. I should be a conversation we have more often. I follow two rules in life. Do all you have agreed to do and don’t encroach upon another. Simple rules and really the only two rules we need. Everything that is morally unacceptable falls under these two simple statements. But in our current society, these rules aren’t followed. Not by citizens and certainly not by our government. When I see the numerous posts about consent, it’s almost always about women and almost only acceptable when it’s applied to sexual abuse where the woman is a victim. But…
