So the article isn't exactly a beaming light of optimism for the pro-Sanders crowd, but the break from political fluff pieces and trumped up drama that you can get from other political news sources is refreshing. As the author states Senator Sanders still has a long way to go, especially when it comes to minority support, but even there we are seeing some progress.
I found this response to the article. I always like to see (or at least try to understand) things from multiple view points and I think the Mary Sue article makes some good points. The author not only seems to take the article a little personally, but as a condemnation against a whole generation, which I didn't sense in the Atlantic article. Overall I think that we have gone overboard in the search to ensure that everyone feels comfortable, but that doesn't mean we can't be considerate. As with most things a balance needs to be found between the two.
I hadn't seen this one, thanks for bringing it to my attention, it looks like a good read.
I think the idea that everyone must get behind a candidate before the primaries even begin is extremely detrimental to our democracy. The us versus them mentality that causes this seems to be just another symptom of our "choose the lesser evil" two party system.
Yeah, I had a real problem even understanding what the "Secret" was. When posting the article I had to go back through to make sense of the title.
Mammoth Cave is one of the most unique national parks I've been to. Most place you get hills and trees and wildlife, and that is all awesome. But with Mammoth cave you get one the largest cave systems in the world. There are a bunch of different tours that you can go on to get a sense of the enormity of the cave, but my personal favorite is the Wild Cave Tour. Two guides take you through the "back alleys" of the cave. You end up crawling and sliding and climbing for around 6 hours in some very dark, very tight areas. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is in anyway claustrophobic and not in at least decent shape, but it is definitely a lot of fun.
I normally abhor these kind of practices as little more than corporate welfare, especially in the light its painted here as a near "shakedown". However, my membership in the cult of Musk is becoming readily apparent to myself, as I find I am quick to coming to his defense throughout the article. Perhaps though there is some room for a grey area when it comes to corporate tax breaks and handouts, as I truly feel that some businesses more than others contribute more "societal good" than solely through employment. Hopefully though, as the economy improves we will see fewer governments willing to go so far to please corporations, whether I personally like them or not.
