• About me

    My name is Rob Skidmore and my wife is Corryn.

    In December I graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in English and joined the ranks of the unemployed.

    I enjoy writing, you can find some of my stories and poems on this blog.

    I also ran track for BYU. I was in great shape until my appendectomy over the summer. Now I am just a skinny white guy with great form and decent muscle tone who gets winded jogging from my front door to the mailbox.

    I am going to be a first time daddy in May. It's a boy. We have a name. We aren't telling.

    I like reading; mostly short stories, they fit my attention span.

    If you like my perspective on stuff feel free to follow this blog, join me on Twitter, or add me on Facebook.

    I work for Infogenix as a SEO Content Writer. If you are interested add me on LinkedIn. I have mad writing skills.

America Save Yourself!

I went to a Tea-Party last week and not the kind with actual tea and crumpets. 😉
It was very interesting. I thought it was just going to be a bunch of radicals shouting about how the man was getting them down. There was a little bit of that but it was a lot more reasonable than I expected. Here are just a few of my thoughts and the main points of the meeting.
One of the men who spoke talked about how our rights are God given. The Declaration of Independence says that men are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…” The only way that the government can take our rights is if we choose to give them. We do this by accepting government money and government programs. His solution to the problem was getting Idaho to stop accepting money and balance its own budget. Which I think is incredibly unrealistic. The only way that is possible is if the state raised its own taxes or did away with a lot of government funded programs and projects. The citizenry would never go for something like that. No more money to fix our roads and parks and bail us out when we have screwed ourselves with poor decisions. It’s a shame or sham because we are just fooling ourselves. The system is broken and the only way it can be fixed is by individual citizens taking responsibility and making sacrifices. Too bad I don’t ever see how that will happen.

Silly Americans.
