|About Me:||I am a sophomore at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. I study biology and rhetoric. I intend to pursue a medical degree, so I'm trying to have a very well rounded science curriculum. In rhetoric, I'm particularly interested in how science and religion are framed by the media, politicians, and advertisers, though I also do a lot of work with issues of war and protest. I tend to have two very distinct personalities: when debating, presenting, or talking "business" I am very outspoken, bold, and often blunt. In more personal settings, though, I tend to be rather shy. I am on the university debate team, where I compete in Worlds Style, and I am the president and founder of the mock trial team.|
|Beliefs:||Politically, I am an unapologetic liberal. In most European countries, I'd be a Socialist or Green, but since we have a screwed up political system and third parties are effectively disenfranchised, I generally support Democrats. I am in favor of universal health care, higher income taxes, CO2 caps, universal college education, and increased welfare, among other liberal issues. I am fundamentally non-religious. I do not believe in God, souls or the afterlife, but I also do not disbelieve in God. I am simply unconvinced by the evidence, in a similar way to how I am unconvinced by the evidence of werewolves.|
|Quotes:||Sarcasm and compassion are two of the qualities that make life on earth tolerable.|
It is wrong for the majority to single out a minority and treat them differently than the rest of society. We have rightly put all sorts of anti-discrimination legislation in place to ensure that minorities are treated equally as well as the rest of us. Unfortunately the crusade to ensure fairness ends abruptly when it comes to those the government considers affluent. They are taxed at a higher percentage then their fellow Americans and are constantly exploited as a source to pay for the mismana...
Colonial Scrip was a monetary system invented by Benjamin Franklin, because the Colonies had, simply put, no money. So he created money backed by real estate (I don't know exactly how, but I wish I did.) that inflated at 3% per year to keep the price of goods almost the same as time goes on. This monetary system was so successful, that the average American farmer was wealthier than the average British aristocrat. The Bank of England got upset that they couldn't cash in on this success, so the Br...
Nuclear power is... 1. A very clean energy source No waste is released into the environment. While there is a small amount of waste, it is contained and not released into the air or water. A typical 1000-megawatt coal-burning plant emits 100,000 tons of sulphur dioxide, 75,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 5000 tons of fly ash into the environment per year while a typical 1000-megawatt oil-burning plant emits about 16,000 tons of sulphur dioxide and 20,000 tons of nitrogen oxides. Producin...
