More frequently than I should, I like to pretend that I know something about something. This happens frequently when I log into Facebook or watch the news and see posts, memes, or political arguments that I strike me as flawed or incompletely hashed out. I like problem solving, and often have thoughts that I want to share, but Facebook doesn’t quite provide the space or venue for longer, more in-depth strings of thought (and I don’t have a chance at getting on the news anytime soon).
As an outlet for my urge to do and share my insights, I started this blog. Since its obnoxious origins I have since add things to the blog besides boring analysis, but I continue to use the blog as an opportunity for me to hash out topics that I think are important or relevant and put my thoughts on display. I particularly try to use the fact that anything I put here will be public and searchable for a long time as motivation to think things through thoroughly.
So here are my more analysis driven posts in reverse chronological order. You will see from a few of the posts that I welcome, enjoy, and try to respond to feedback (though I still have a Social Security post on the backburner more than a year after that whole discussion started. I have thoughts about what I want to do, just not the time to do it…)
