“I love this state. It seems right here. Trees are the right height,” opined Mitt Romney about his home state. I never really thought about whether the trees were the right height until Mitt Romney came to Michigan and made that statement while campaigning.
If you’re worried about black helicopters, you might want to trade in your anti-aircraft gun for a good electromagnetic pulse device.
Sports, for many people, are life. They are also an interesting microcosm of a larger American society: from Jackie Robinson’s breaking down baseball’s racial barriers to Muhammed Ali’s divisive tirades against American militarism (as particularly exemplified in Vietnam). Fast-forward to 2012 and we have a new focal point for conversation: Linsanity.
You’re walking down the typical neighborhood street when you spot two people in the midst of an argument just a stone’s throw from where you are. What do you do? Your answer probably depends on the nature of the fight.
February is not only noted as Black History Month, but it has been a month full of victories for the civil rights movement of our time.
The Detroit Red Wings are the hottest team in hockey right now. This is an undeniable fact. The Wings are boasting the NHL’s best record, picking up significant accolades along the way.
Earlier this month, the Obama administration brokered a multi-billion-dollar settlement between 49 state attorneys general and five major US banks over widespread fraud in the rush to foreclose on millions of American homeowners after the housing bubble burst.
Education is important. If you’ve bothered to read my ramblings, you probably know I believe that. So buckle up, because MEAP scores are being released.
Nothing is more interesting than listening to two people discuss the multiplicity of conundrums facing international politics today. Whether it is Iran’s intransigence regarding its testing of nuclear power or the explosive turmoil continually ravaging much of Africa, we inevitably find ourselves reflecting on the role of the United States in relation to the rest of the world. Ultimately however, it seems America is ready, to some extent, to turn inward and let the world police itself. Nonetheless, that decision merits reflection.
It finally dawned on me, and now I can’t remember what everything looked like before. I know why the GOP is having such a hard time picking a candidate this year.
The Michigan primaries are only a few weeks away on the GOP nomination calendar. Nine states have already been decided, yet nothing has been resolved.
“On your turn, try to capture territories by defeating your opponents’ armies. But be careful: Winning battles will depend on careful planning, quick decisions and bold moves.
Does the Susan G. Komen Foundation truly care about preventing breast cancer, or is there a political agenda that influences its decisions? The former seems to be true after the foundation’s president resigned in response to public outcry against the decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood.
Keep A Breast Foundation is a national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing and eradicating cancer for the American public. Perhaps its most famous move is the backing of the humorous and some would say provocative, “I Love Boobies” bracelets. While the bands were certainly born from good intentions, we must question the implications of such a sentiment.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. A day of romance, love, cards, chocolate and murdered gangsters.
The amazing thing about the current campaign finance laws is exactly no one is happy with them. The Left thinks the current situation offers the wealthy too much power, and the Right thinks this climate awkwardly restricts free speech.
Detroit Tigers fans were given reprieve from an unlikely source after the news came that Victor Martinez will not play in 2012. The Tigers inked Prince Fielder to an outrageous contract for nine years, worth $214 million.
Gov. Steve Beshear, Democrat of Kentucky, has lent his support to a creationist theme park, Ark Adventure, commissioned by Answers in Genesis. He has not only lent his support vocally, but he has itemized in the state’s budget a tax break worth $43 million for the park. This story appeared on The Huffington Post, and I couldn’t have been more confounded.
When thinking of young children, most people assign adjectives such as hyper, curious, inquisitive or active.
“So what we get drunk, so what we smoke weed, we’re just havin’ fun and we don’t care who sees!” This is the opening line of the popular song “Young, Wild and Free,” from rappers Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg. The anthem predictably champions marijuana usage, and I can think of few people who are better to create such a song.
