Considering nearly half of American households tune into the Super Bowl every year, I will start by assuming many of you sat down to enjoy this year’s, where a typically hour-long game was the length of a Peter Jackson movie. The annual broadcast is saturated with some of the most expensive commercial breaks in the world and, not surprisingly, they are part of the attraction.
Far from the penurious tendencies of his conservative counterparts in other states, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder wants to raise taxes and spend more.
The United States of America: now sporting more drones than the Gallente Federation from “EVE Online.”
President Barack Obama has defended his actions in the Middle East and North Africa for a while now. He has taken credit for ending the war in Iraq, trying to end the war in Afghanistan and toppling Middle-Eastern dictators, all while keeping America’s interests in mind.
Gun control is a hot topic these days. Unfortunately, to make a play on Ben Parker’s wise words: “With great controversy comes great stupidity.” And nothing could characterize the debate over gun control more aptly.
We’ve all seen the plethora of bumper stickers advocating peace: “Another family for peace,” “Make love not war” and, my personal favorite, the word “Coexist” written using the symbols for different religions. But these logos and mottos don’t really mean anything by themselves.
While surfing the Internet recently, I stumbled upon an infuriating tidbit on Reddit about a St. Louis waitress who was fired over posting a photo of a rude note left on a receipt. The message, “I give God 10 percent. Why do you get 18?” was written by Pastor Alois Bell.
They say cheaters never win, but Republicans across the country are determined to try.
President Barack Obama held a news conference last month regarding the Newtown, Conn. shootings. His response included a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity clips. The people of Newtown aren’t taking his lead. The Newtown school board just approved armed guards in its schools, as the National Rifle Association proposed. Sadly, our president is a politician first, and a protector of lives second. Recent events and his policies prove this.
To say the way human beings interact has changed immensely in the past 10 years would be an understatement. That fact is clearly on display in the new application available on Facebook called Bang With Friends.
Let’s talk about immigration reform, because that horse hasn’t been beaten into delicious, tender “mutton” yet.
When it comes to the debt ceiling, Americans have the attention span of a duck. At least the media seems to think so. In January we have been subjected to many distractions.
Our history is full of activist presidents who pushed the limits of executive power. While pushing is sometimes necessary to make things happen, it’s possible to push too far, as former President Franklin Roosevelt found when he introduced a bill to add more justices to the Supreme Court to get more favorable rulings regarding his New Deal legislation.
If you’re one of the many Eastern Michigan University students who deal with the stress of juggling a job, attending classes and having a mountain of student loan debt growing with every semester, it may be hard to imagine a downside to having someone else pay for your college education.
On Jan. 21, a series of memos and letters filed in a civil case found Roman Catholic Cardinal Roger Mahony and a host of other church officials conspired to shield known pedophile priests from police.
You are who you were
Bookmarks, jewelry, piano keys, picture frames—you name it—all fuel elephant poaching and the rush for ivory.
This just in: President Barack Obama is a Democrat with nothing to lose.
Prince Harry of Wales recently compared his experience in active combat to playing video games during an interview with Britain’s Channel 4. The prince is brave to have left a comfortable life for warfare, but it was wrong to compare it to a video game. It reinforces an impression of a perilous situation, that while they may not admit it, many Americans already have of our campaigns in the Middle East.
As President Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term, his inaugural speech was thick with messages of social justice. Drawing on the day we remember him, Obama echoed and invoked the legacy of the great Martin Luther King Jr., as he declared, “We cannot walk alone … our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”
