Point of View

Road Rage

UNITED STATES—What is it about driving that drives so many of us nuts?  Is it the fact that many people refuse to obey the rules of the road, is it inexperience or the fact that the road is a dangerous place?  The road is a dangerous place for those who are not equipped to control their vehicle.  Having the...

Taking A Look At Mental Illness

UNITED STATES—Why is it when it comes to mental illness it’s a discussion people prefer not to have.  Mental illness is a serious issue inAmericaand a discussion that we need to have.  It should not be a taboo subject matter, there are thousands, perhaps millions of people suffering from mental illness everyday, yet we turn a blind eye to...

Dog Owners Spread Love

SAN FRANCISCO – Everyone has the innate desire for companionship.   We have our friends and families. Some of us are lucky enough to meet a person that we will share the rest of our natural lives with. For some of us these relationships are enough to satiate the longing for companionship and our innate need for friendship.  But human relationships...

Good Vs. Evil

UNITED STATES—People have told me time and time again that some people are inherently bad, while others are good.  But could it be true that some people are born evil?  My gut tells me there is good in everyone, but at the same time with so much violent crime in our country and in the world I’m more inclined...

Regressive Catholic Church

UNITED STATES—Remember Vatican II?  There was just a celebration of its 50th anniversary. In keeping with current Roman Catholic Church teachings and doctrine, this celebration included quite a bit of “clarification” which sounded an awful lot like recanting and rescinding many of the changes that epitomized Vatican II. Just this week, the Roman Catholic Church in England is halting the...

Protesting Without Violence

UNITED STATES—For those of you who are not already aware, Michigan has joined the ranks of countless other states to become a ‘Right to Work’ state.  It was something that was splattered over many news stations in the recent weeks.  There were tons of outcries from unionized workers fighting for the rights that so many others have fought so...

Disabled

UNITED STATES—It would seem to be a no-brainer: should the United States recommend the same regulations regarding people with disabilities, which have been law in the US since 1990, to the rest of the world?  Surely, if these regulations are fair and beneficial here at home, we should encourage other nations to follow our fine example and adopt similar...

To Spank Or To Not Spank

UNITED STATES—It’s a debate that has been ongoing for generations.  When it comes to disciplining your child what is the best approach: to spank or to not spank?  I will be the first to admit it, when I was a kid we got spankings.  If you did something wrong a quick tap on the bottom or a pop on...

Homelessness In America

UNITED STATES—There is a huge epidemic inAmericaright now, the number of homeless people on the streets continues to grow.  It hurts my soul to see a person, particularly children who have no place to sleep at night.  In a country where we have some of the wealthiest people in the world, we should take more of an initiative to...
