Trump’s Ignorance Towards Hurricane Maria Only Made It Worse

On Sept. 20, 2017, the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record made landfall as a Category 5 storm to the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, destroying approximately 80% of the island and leaving 100% of citizens powerless and in the wake of an utter disaster. The death toll, in Hurricane Maria’s aftermath, was officiated at an estimated 2,975, with some still unaccounted for. Water and food shortages ran rampant, hospitals were closed due to damage

How Natural Disaster Relief Fails Minorities

Does loss of life have a color? A certain bank account? A value based upon intelligence or access? Has our world reached a place wherein disaster relief and aid is just as polarizing as every other evidence of racial and socioeconomic divide? For the past week, the United States has effortlessly focused their time and energy in preparing the east coast for the impact of Hurricane Florence. Mandatory evacuations, taking effect in the Carolinas and

Fiscal Conservative, Social Liberal: A Modern Myth

Fiscal Conservative, Social Liberal. This phrase, often coupled with a moderate political stance, demonstrates an individual’s support for LGBTQ+ rights and the pro-choice movement, but also support for conservative fiscal policies, such as lower taxes, small government, privatization, free trade, and deregulation of the economy. Support for this viewpoint can be found in Republican senator Marco Rubio saying he “would go attend a gay marriage,” and Republican senator Ted Cruz voicing support for states choosing their own marijuana

The Future of Transgender Military Members is Uncertain

President Donald Trump is continuing his attempt to prevent transgender military members from serving. After federal courts thwarted his attempt at a ‘ban’ in July 2016, he’s rescinded his last policy to enact a new one. It will limit future recruits based on criteria that are developed through “extensive study by senior uniformed and civilian leaders, including combat veterans.” The criteria were released in a memo from the Pentagon on Friday, March 22. It detailed specifics that disqualify transgender

Why The Argument Against Gun Control Is Irrelevant

It’s hard to believe the degree of violence innocent people are witnessing every day. The Parkland shooting is only the most recent in a string of school shootings that have occurred in 2018. With 17 deaths, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has quickly surpassed Columbine to become the most devastating high school shooting and falls second only to Sandy Hook in terms of all-time school shootings. Teenagers should be writing term papers, studying for AP tests

Key Points Of President Trump’s State Of The Union Address

Clocking in at one hour and 20 minutes, President Trump delivered the third longest State of the Union speech in history, according to the American Presidency Project. Since the average person would not have maintained focus for the entirety of the speech, let’s go over a few key points of Tuesdays’ SOTU. Calls For Bipartisanship and Unity In the beginning of his address, President Trumps said “Tonight, I call upon on all of us to

The 2018 Women’s March: Revolution Doesn’t Give Up

Another year, another milestone for women. The Trump Administration’s first year in office brought scandal, investigation, outrage, one legislative win and ended in a government shutdown. Today, over 300 rallies in every U.S. state show that the resistance has never forgotten what they stood for. Oddly enough, the President himself decided to tweet this support for the protests today, confusing some about the true intentions of the march. Beautiful weather all over our great country,

Trump’s Bigotry: The Bigger Problem of the Sh*thole Comment

President Trump was quick to deny the most recent accusation that he made a comment in which he denounced prominently black foreign nations as “sh*thole countries.” Yet with a sitting Democratic senator and various outlets of media confirming his quote as true and with Trump’s continuous conflict with credibility, the importance of the controversy is not whether or not he actually did say it, but what it says about the increasingly impacting matter of Trump’s

The Congressional Review Act: The Bill That Could Save Net Neutrality

As many people know, on Dec. 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal Obama-era internet regulations, otherwise known as Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality provided the basic guidelines to keeping the modern open internet unbiased and available. The board members who voted to repeal the act blatantly ignored the wishes of thousands of citizens in order to further their own belief system. Some other government officials have expressed their own disappointment in the repeal
