Designed for teachers, trivia buffs and the politically cynical, Why Every President Sucked: America's Undying Pursuit for a King aims to halt a voter's search for future presidential perfection by detailing how each former President has failed to live up to these expectations.

Has anyone thought through the copyright issues of posting/linking/attributing animated GIFs - whether on your official site or via social media channel? We'd love to utilize them more on our Tumblr site, but find embedding Giphy.com gifs to be problematic and are nervous about uploading them directly for copyright concerns?

Blanketing any writer/philosopher/scientist/artist/politician as “right” or wrong” is entirely unhelpful. Are they a 'Rebel' or of the 'Empire' is a false dichotomy. Like the rest of us, they are mere men and women, deeply shaded in gray. Let us judge only their ideas, and one at a time. Quick to embrace the cream that rises to the top. And equally quick to discard the folly, not as evidence of their intentional opposition to all things good, but merely of their humanity.

There is beauty in the act of reading a local newspaper cover-to-cover each morning. There is psychosis as well. For while this once may have been, this habitual act no longer offers an efficient way to become informed – no matter what your intellectual interest. We continue to do ‘noble’ things, not for their nobility, but for how they comfort us.

The "cynical optimist" is not a contradiction of terms, but a real understanding that while the human heart is undeniably corrupt, the breakthroughs and inventions of a few will make the entire world better, all without us needing to become better people at all – a “rising tide lifts all boats” scenario. We will get richer. We will become safer. We will technologically progress. All without any moral progression required at all. Thus, we must be on guard for the illusion that we are evolving when things around us get better, when we are most certainly not.

Finally ready to call it.
