Mike Rowe on Wealth Envy   Leave a comment

Elise Amyx Daniel

Mike Rowe, the former host of Dirty Jobs, recently dismissed worries over income inequality on CNN. In an interview with Erin Burnett, he said,

The idea that everybody who’s poor, and everybody who’s in the middle, and everybody who’s wealthy stays there their whole life — that I don’t believe. I think there’s a lot of moving back and forth. And I think it’s dangerous to say, “This group is always going to be in this spot.”

He also spoke out against the idea of “wealth envy,” saying most of the people he worked with on Dirty Jobs didn’t even have time to think about who had more and who has less. He said,

I’ve spent ten years crawling through sewers, painting bridges, sexing chickens, milking camels. I work with people who don’t have time to talk about who has it worse and who has it better. The jobs on…

Gaming Musings   Leave a comment

Natacha Guyot

For the past weeks, I have been toying with the idea of delving into some gaming again. The two reasons why I haven’t done that are that I don’t know which game I would pick and that I am worried of how time consuming it would be.

End of 2011 – mid 2013, I spent a lot of time on Star Wars: The Old Republic. I loved the game to pieces and up to this day there is only one class (Sith Warrior) whose storyline I didn’t complete nor brought to level 50. The game remains one of my favorite but since I cancelled my subscription last summer, I feel that the game is behind me. It might sound silly as I still own the game and could play it again, but I don’t have a strong will to hop back into it.

I am extremely impatient for the…

Top 5 Unexplored Countries in Dragon Age   Leave a comment

GentlemanWhatever's Little Lists

5. Elvhenan

Arlathansunk

Translated as “place of our people,” Elvhenan is the ancient city of the elves in the Dragon Age universe. It is said that the city and it’s people ruled the world for thousands of years before humans arrived. The fall of Elvhenan left the elves destitute and no longer immortal, with only the memory of their former glory to keep them going. Thus, visiting the ancient ruins of Elvhenan would make for a fascinating experience, Elvin-Origin or not.

4. Par Vollen

The largest known home of the Qunari, this island nation made quite the name for itself in Dragon Age 2. Par Vollen is technically at war with the rest of Thedas, which would make any excursion there very interesting. You would get to see first hand how the Qun actually functions, and whether or not it’s as bad as it seems. Plus, it’s tropical setting and pyramids…

Klobuchar-Peterson-Walz

From Red Alert PoliticsMelissa Quinn reports:  Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz must have forgotten to share her talking points with a trio of Minnesota Democrats asked about the Obamacare train wreck, as their only response to constituents about the failing law was awkward silence.

Members of Minnesota’s delegation, including Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) and Reps. Tim Walz (D) and Collin Peterson (D), gathered for an agricultural symposium at South Central College in North Mankato, Minn. Though the trio addressed issues surrounding the recently passed farm bill, they also fielded questions about the Affordable Care Act. And one left the Democrats speechless. Watch:

“I thought the Affordable Healthcare Act would save $2,500 per family,” an attendee asked. “What happened?”

A silence quickly fell over the room as Klobuchar and Walz exchanged nervous glances. The audience then burst out laughing…
