Point of View

Boosting The Minimum Wage

UNITED STATES—Some good news was unleashed to the public on Tuesday, February 12 as President Barack Obama conducted his State of the Union Address. This was the commander in chief’s fourth address to the American people.  He acknowledged that he’d like to raise the current minimum wage of $7.25 to $9.00.   This is exceptionally good news, but as we...

PC Liberty

UNITED STATES—Many moons ago, there were some pretty hard and fast rules in journalism about what was and what was not fit to print (or talk about or show on radio and TV). By today’s standards, the idea that saying “bastard” or “booger” on the air would get you fired seems pretty ludicrous. And it was ludicrous and wrong....

Good Guy Vs. Bad Guy

UNITED STATES—How accurate is the saying, “Good guys always finish last?”  I know some people including myself are inclined to think that statement is quite accurate.  Women tend to be attracted to bad boys, for what reason some will never know.  I personally do not think it’s an issue of getting an adrenaline rush from being around someone who...

Cheater, Cheater

UNITED STATES—Relationships are complicated.  Men think like men and women think like women.  Will we ever understand the opposite sex?  Never, we’d have to live in their bodies for a few years to completely understand the struggles and emotional roller coaster that women and men encounter.  A bigger discussion here is to tackle the issue of infidelity when it...

Domestic Violence

UNITED STATES—Domestic violence is an issue that we have to talk about. There are so many women who are victims trapped in abusive relationships day in and day out.  It’s something we’ve seen tackled in countless movies, on television, in music, on radio and other media outlets, but why is it an issue that has yet to be tackled...

Opinions In The Media

UNITED STATES—Journalism should be unbiased.  Sides should not be picked when discussing news content under any circumstance, but it seems that opinionated people are more and more inflecting their voices in the stories that they report.  What bugs me is not the fact that an opinion is infused into the story; it’s the way that some reporters state their...

Facebook Vs. Twitter

UNITED STATES—The social media world is constantly being updated every day.  I remember the old days before Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, there was MySpace.  Well where is MySpace nowadays?  It’s still around, but not many people are using it, heck I barely remember my password for that account. Today the social media craze is ran by Facebook, some would...

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...
