Point of View

Family Reunion Planning

UNITED STATES—When I was a kid my dad’s family made it a tradition for us to have a family reunion every 2 years. When I reached my teen years, the reunions just stopped. Fast-forward to 2015, and the notion of the family reunion is exploding in full-force. For the first time ever, I attended a family reunion on my...

President Trump’s Attack On The Transgender Community

UNITED STATES—I was going to write on this issue last week, but time got the best of me and I’m glad I didn’t. It allowed me to clearly go through my thoughts to have a concrete analysis of the events that transpired. I know there are plenty of people out there who despise President Donald Trump and I know...

Teaching Kids To Value Money

UNITED STATES—How do you teach children the value of money? It seems simple, but to me it always seems like a never-ending battle where I feel like I always come out on the losing end. I’ve been told that if you give a child money and force them to spend it to get the things they want, it will...

Money Management Matters

UNITED STATES—You have it one minute, it’s gone the next second. I’m talking about money. Americans want it, some of us have it, some of us have a lot of it and some of us don’t have much of it at all. It is indeed a conundrum to say the least. I used to toss around the word budget...

Donald Vs. Hillary: Presidential Debate Round 2

UNITED STATES—Nasty. Personal. Argumentative. Lack of respect. Those are just some of the words that I would use to describe the second presidential debate between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. I mean the first debate was quite decisive; there were proponents that argued Hillary performed better, others quipped that Donald had the edge. What is important...

Should We Be Armed?

UNITED STATES—We have to have a serious discussion about gun control in America. We’ve talked about mass shootings the nation has encountered in the past 2-3 years, but 2014 has seen more mass shootings than I can count. Just in the past month we’ve had at least three shootings that I can recall that have shocked the nation. It’s almost...

The Dangers Of Football

UNITED STATES—Football is the quintessential American sport. I mean, I don’t know an American who isn’t a fan of the sport. After watching my nephews little league football game this weekend, I was baffled at something that had crossed my mind before, but didn’t really strike me until this past weekend. Football is a dangerous sport! The physical combat element...

Money Matters In All Aspects Of Life

UNITED STATES—For many Americans we work damn hard for every single penny we earn. So imagine if you had someone controlling every single penny that you made to benefit their own personal wellbeing. I already know what many of you are expecting: this is a column about marriage. No, this is a column about money management, spending without a...

Women In San Francisco Send A Strong Message To Trump

SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco has once again shown that it is the libertarian capital of the world. In the third annual Women’s March that took place in San Francisco this January, women from all over the country sent a strong message to all people in government who remain a treat to libertarian values. The women who were part of the march...

Should The Age To Vote Be Lowered?

UNITED STATES—It is the age old debate that seems to have no end in sight: should the voting age be lowered in the United States? Before you answer that question think about it for a second. Really think about it America. There is a proposal by a U.S. Congressman Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts. I didn’t realize that the voting...
