OPINION: To Save the GOP, Trump Must Go

The midterms have come and gone, and the predicted “red wave” looked more like a ripple. Weak candidates appeared to be one primary issue. Senatorial candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania are great examples. Putting policy aside, these Republicans were deeply flawed candidates that ran poor campaigns. Both were endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

OPINION: We Deserve More Control Over Social Security

There is no guarantee that I will be alive tomorrow, or that Washington D.C. will not be wiped out in a nuclear blast, taking the U.S. Treasury and the Social Security Trust Fund with it. With that in mind, I like to think I can make better decisions for myself than some arbitrary force controlled by elitists on the Eastern seaboard. My previous article established how Social Security could be put on solid financial footing. Now, what could be done to give people more control over how Social Security is invested, and when they get paid?

OPINION: A Plan to Save Social Security for Our Generation

Social Security is going broke. By the time the Baby Boomers all retire, let alone when we get our chance to migrate to Florida and sip margaritas on the beach, there might be no money left, or the age of full benefits will be 150.  The continued existence of the system depends on young people not having the financial sense to realize that it is a scam. So how can we fix it, without screwing people over who have already paid into the system?

OPINION: Why Same Sex Marriage Could NOT Be Left to the States

The conservative judges on the court seem to have a bone to pick with precedent, right? 50 years' worth in the case of Roe v. Wade. While Obergefell v. Hodges has yet to survive a decade. However, overturning Obergefell v. Hodges would require such an infringement upon state's rights and a mangling of legal precedent that a conservative justice wouldn't dare take the risk.

OPINION: Moonies Approached Me on Campus

A few weeks ago I was doing homework in the library. I am a commuter, so for me this was a little out of the ordinary. I had been sitting there for about an hour, and I was making good progress until I was approached by two members of the The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.

After heavy pushback, Indiana Senate has voted down the watered-down revision of Indiana House Bill 1134.

OPINION: Clean Beauty-The New Normal or a Passing Fad?

The other day, I went into my local Walgreens for a new mascara. Browsing the beauty section, it’s hard not to notice the new trends. There were, of course, lines of bright colors for spring, new lines of concealer, the normal products that are reintroduced every few months, branded as something ‘new ...

OPINION: Teenage Vaping: A Fad or Lifestyle?

Vaping. For a while, it seemed as if there was new information, new legislation, or horror stories of young kids in the ER suffering the effects of it coming out every day. Although Covid has been sweeping news stations, and the focus of this health matter has died down, it is something that is still ...

OPINION: Indiana Ousts Miller but What Went Wrong?

It happened. Another basketball coach ousted by Indiana, exiled to lay in the shadowed graveyard that has been dug since the departure of Bobby Knight in 2000. It’s different this time, Archie Miller was viewed as a homerun hire for the Hoosiers by many college basketball writers, insiders, and even ...
