Point of View

Great Leap Backward

UNITED STATES—Every time there is a major election, we are inundated with hype from each political party, which in the US means mainly Democrats and Republicans. We recognize that this hype is mostly lies that were specifically concocted to influence voters to vote for or against something. This just makes people more apathetic. Most people feel strongly about and...

The Death Of Television

UNITED STATES—Why are so many TV shows even created? More importantly what is the relevance of some shows? This was a question that I had to ask myself when I got a glimpse of the new reality series on E! “#Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.”  This series has to have the most self-absorbed, arrogant and annoying characters that I...

The Legalization Of Marijuana: Good Or Bad?

UNITED STATES—Its an ongoing debate that people have been discussing for years. Should marijuana be legalized in America? If you are asking my honest opinion, the answer is no.  There is a reason behind my decision. We have so many states that have legalized the use of marijuana with a  medical purpose to say the least; all the buzz...

Political Scandals

UNITED STATES—It seems to appear right around Super Tuesday or two years before the presidency becomes in reach the political pundits begin to predict who will run or what scandal may take someone out of the running. I will admit the 2016 presidential race is sure to be one that will have minds pondering.  While there is constant speculation...

Profanity, Drugs And Nudity In Cinema: Too Much?

UNITED STATES—It’s a question that has been asked time and time again? Is there too much profanity, drugs and nudity in movies nowadays?

It’s a decisive argument where some say, NO, while others say YES. Some would say with a student receiving a scholarship, that heavily compensates their services, while others would say the mere thousands paid out for the scholarship is...

Ideological Journalism

UNITED STATES—Why, in the 21st century, do we have so many ideologues and so few experts? At a time when our nation and our world have so many problems, why are so many people abandoning rationality? OK, so what is an expert? There are two main types of expert. One type is someone who has spent a long time learning...

Taking A Bit Of Time To ‘Escape’

UNITED STATES—Everyday life can be stressful. Between work, family and home life, it’s enough to put someone into a tailspin.  We sometimes forget or don’t know how to take steps to ‘escape’ from the constant pressures of daily life. I’m speaking from personal experience; juggling two jobs and other countless stressors leaves little to no time to relax.  So...

Playing The Money Game

UNITED STATES—It’s the one thing that every person wants: money! It’s a commodity that is traded daily to purchase goods and services.  While some have lots of it, others don’t have as much. So a big question many of us ask ourselves time and time again is how do we save more money to place ourselves in a comfortable...

Keep It To Yourself

UNITED STATES—So many people are failing to realize how dangerous social media can be.  Yes, we have the right to freedom of speech, but it surely can get you in trouble in mainstream America.  We’ve become a more tolerable nation in recent years; absolutely there is still plenty of work to be done, but we’ve made some great strides...
