Point of View

Spending Money Wisely

UNITED STATES─Have you ever taken a close look at the amount of money you’ve spent in a given week. Most people do, but I mean have you actually taken a look at everything you spent for the entire week, including the minor things that you assume don’t matter? Well I did and I came to startling realization: I’m spending...

Life Trajectory Changes

UNITED STATES—In a short few weeks I am going to accomplish something that I never thought possible in my life: I’m about to graduate with a Master’s Degree. Yeah, the past 3 years have been some of the roughest, busiest and exhausting of my life. At times I didn’t think it was possible to juggle two jobs, be a...

Time Is Of The Essence!

UNITED STATES—There are 24 hours in a given day, well to be exact its only 23 hours and some minutes. For most Americans the notion of having enough time is something that seems incomprehensible. For most of us we spend 8-9 hours working, factor in another 1-2 hours of travel time to and from work, 6-8 hours sleeping, and...

Kentucky, Please Ditch Mitch

UNITED STATES—Many of us across the country are perplexed as to why Kentuckians keep re-electing Mitch McConnell. His near total abdication of honorably running the Senate has been ongoing for years, creating what is called a legislative graveyard with the piling up of bills passed by the House that he refuses to even bring up for a vote in...

Sleep Without Sleep

UNITED STATES—This past week has been a doozy for me to say the least. Not only was the stress of school and work mounting, but it seemed like no matter what I did, it was nearly impossible for me to get a good night’s sleep. I tried to go to sleep early, that did not work. I put myself...

Overworked

UNITED STATES—Can you recall the last time that you had eight hours of sleep? Do you recall the last time that you went to work and didn’t feel exhausted before you entered the door? How about feeling like no matter how hard you work, you still have a ton of work that you still haven’t gotten completed? Yeah, we’ve...

The Government Shut Down Will It End?

UNITED STATES—Well it has been close to two weeks since the federal government has gone into a partial shutdown. I note partial because the government has not completely shut down, but there are plenty of Americans who are impacted by the closure. It looks like state and national parks are feeling the brunt of the closure first, but my...

Reasons To Love Free Money

UNITED STATES—Who out there doesn’t like free money? I know I do, how about you? I think most Americans are alike; it seems the quicker that you get money the faster it disappears. When you factor in your monthly expenses between rent/mortgage, lights, gas, water, car payments, cell phone, cable, internet, groceries and anything else, there is very little...

Blatant Racism

UNITED STATES—I could not believe the video that a family member sent me last week of a woman running for a city council seat in the town of Marysville, Michigan. It left me appalled, shocked and just speechless. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, I have no idea where you have been hiding, but Jean Cramer, has...

Are Video Games Dangerous?

UNITED STATES—This is something that has been discussed for years, and I mean years dating back to my early childhood. After the recent shooting that transpired in Jacksonville, Florida at a gaming event, it raises the question if video games are indeed dangerous. A crazed man, after being eliminated from the competition grabs a gun and shoots and kills...
