In no particular order, and certainly not a conclusive list, but there are some things that really bother me that I'll call Big Picture Problems:

  • Federal Defecit Spending and the growth of the national debt
  • The continued plundering of limited resources and other environmental issues
  • Politicians
  • Overpopulation
  • Nuclear proliferation
  • The continued abatement of freedoms in the name of "security"
  • The ever-increasing power of corporations over people
  • Lack of universal healthcare

Accordingly, I'd like to say thanks to the hard-working individuals and organizations who work to improve things, including:

  • The ACLU
  • The EFF
  • Greenpeace
  • Citizens Against Government Waste
