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?

LETTER: IU Must End its Ban on Pepper Spray

Recently, an article was published in The Campus Citizen about the work student organizations and the IUPD are doing to improve campus safety. However, like the many students whom I have spoken with, you may be surprised to know that Indiana University has a policy banning pepper spray and similar weapons. The biggest problem with an existing policy that is not enforced is that the University has the freedom to enforce the policy unfairly and discriminatorily. More importantly, the existing policy being in the books allows the university to change their mind at any time and start punishing students for wanting to protect themselves.

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: 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.

“Dare to Say His Name”: Candyman is no longer a myth

The sequel follows the 1992 film, where the main character in the 2021 film, is derived from the child who had a connection to the Candyman.
