Censorship In America

UNITED STATES—America its time for us to have a serious conversation about an issue that is plaguing our country involving Freedom of Speech.  The First Amendment is one of those laws that almost all Americans are well aware of.  There’s just one problem with the idea behind Freedom of Speech: you really don’t have it.  The law prevents the...

Celebrity Obsession

UNITED STATES—Something popped into my working brain recently and I couldn’t help, but facilitate a conversation around the issue.  Why are we as a culture so concerned with reporting and knowing what celebrities are doing? Is it because the media reports it or is it the possibility that we have a keen interest in it? I would argue that...

Student Loan Mania

Give Us The Truth ‘Reality’ TV

  UNITED STATES—How real are most of those reality series that we’ve become obsessed with?  Hmm, it’s a good question.  So many of us would like to believe what is being depicted on the small screen is as honest as it can come, but there’s just one problem.

Ignorance Is Bliss

  UNITED STATES—I know many of you may be tired of hearing my rants about issues with society, but it appears no matter how much we as a nation attempt to move forward, there are always a few bad apples spoiling things for everyone else. This is in essence to a reporter who revealed his battle with vitiligo. Vitiligo is...

Race Relations

UNITED STATES—It’s a discussion that so many Americans would like to avoid, the truth of the matter is racism still exists in America.  It’s not as overt as it has been in the past centuries, but it still exists.  There are people that dislike certain groups or people because of their skin color.  The reason this issue has been...

Dining Out

UNITED STATES—We all want to eat healthier, but its easier said than done.  Why is that? Its simple one word: LIFE.  The everyday tasks and obstacles that we encounter makes it so much easier to reach for something unhealthy than it does for something that is healthy.  Why is that? Well as humans we are predisposed to our taste buds...

Decisive Politics

UNITED STATES—Where are we nowadays when politicians continue to push egregious bills to further their own end goals versus protecting the concerns of the citizens they are to represent?  It appears politics has always been this way; it’s the notion that politicians are blunt in indicating their intentions. Recent buzz has been in the air in the recent weeks...
