Drew is an idealist. Instead of exhaustively searching for obscure ways to make my person sound even the slightest bit interesting to a race apathetic and cadaverous, I've concluded one can gain a relatively accurate analysis of Drew and all that ensnares her, through the contents of this blog. It's all gravy here.
Live long and prosper.

For instance, on Wall Street right now, you have people who are literally sitting with their feet up on their desks, sipping a latte, while a computer runs a thousand trades a second, based on algorithms—and makes tons of money. Yet people say, “We can’t tax rich people because we’ll discourage them.” We could have a small tax on every one of those lightning trades, and The New York Times says we could pull billions of dollars off of Wall Street to fund massive infrastructure projects across America, and get skilled workers back rebuilding America’s roads, bridges, hospitals, and schools.
Humanity cannot survive in a paradigm that requires infinite growth, which again, is what it’s based on. If you’re not familiar with that, think about it. All we do is buy and consume, and consume, and consume. That’s what makes the economy go. If people stop buying, the GDP of all countries goes down. Well, the more we buy, consume and waste our resources, the faster we extinguish ourselves.
