The Two Percent Company

The Two Percent Company is an informal group of folks who are concerned about the current direction of our country and our world. In short, we believe that people have the right to do whatever they want to do, as long as it doesn't interfere with the rights of others. Unfortunately, religious figures, politicians, and stupid or narrow-minded people are determined to impose their silly or dangerous beliefs on us.
Our mission at the Two Percent Company is to expose the blatant stupidity and recklessness of many individuals and groups in our world — particularly those who have acquired a great amount of power, influence, and exposure.
We plan to forge the unknown into common knowledge, to eradicate bullshit and ignorance — willful or otherwise — and, in general, to fight for truth, justice, and the use of science, reason and logic to further the progress of humankind.
Think of our Rants, which you are reading now, as the heart of the Two Percent Company — oft emotional reactions to news stories about problems in the country and the world. In keeping with the parts of the body analogy, that would mean that the Score would be the brains of our company — a place where logic, reason, and research have been applied to the problems in the world in order to come up with rational answers. Our Resources — links to sites and groups from which we get information — would be our ears and our eyes, and our Stores would be, for lack of any relevant analogy, our spleen.
A little over a year ago, we were unaware of many of the problems that we discuss on our site. Since we have begun researching these issues, we have been shocked on numerous occasions about what some people believe, and the agendas those beliefs drive. Like us, we believe that most intelligent people would be angry, upset, and eager to join the fray once they learn what is going on.
Our simple goal is to get the word out to those people so that they may act. At the same time, we hope to learn from our readers; to have our facts and conclusions challenged in rational ways so that we, too, may continue to learn. To that end, please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you may have, or to comment on any of our rants.
Above all, we look forward to the journey, wherever it may take us.
The Two Percent Company.
