Tax Reform and “Fake News”

February 14th, 2018|0 Comments

The GOP tax reform plan, effective this year, already has a very negative reputation among the American public. The culprit?

Tax reform has been long overdue. What does Trump’s tax plan bring to the table? It makes a vast number of changes to current tax law. Here are the broad strokes: It cuts the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent while lowering the individual tax rate to 37 percent. […]

Herlong to Hold Corrupt Politicians Accountable

January 15th, 2018|Comments Off on Herlong to Hold Corrupt Politicians Accountable

From William Herlong:

Yesterday morning I officially announced my candidacy for SC Attorney General. In my announcement, I outlined the core principles for reforming the office of Attorney General and cleaning up the widespread level of ethical corruption in the State House.

Current State Attorney General Alan Wilson recused himself from the ethics probe that has already led to three top state elected officials pleading guilty and many other indictments. If our state government is to function properly, honestly, and fairly, we must have an Attorney General who is honest and independent, someone with experience and good judgment, and most importantly someone who recognizes that the good ol’ boy network is not really any good at all. Unfortunately, our current Attorney General does not […]

Workers’ Rights: What Exactly Are Employees Entitled To?

February 8th, 2018|0 Comments

Can you imagine what it would have been like to be in full-time employment over a century ago? There were very few rights for workers and many employers had little or no regard for the condition in which their employees were forced to work. As a result, workplaces over a hundred years ago were dangerous places, and many workers would work seven day weeks for months on end with very little respite. So, you have a lot to be thankful for that you get to be a full-time employee in the 21st century.

Even though workers rights have come on a very long way over the past century, it has only really been over the past couple of decades that […]

A New Bill Introducing Chemical Castration in Oklahoma

Will Oklahoma soon join other U.S. states where a sex offender is allowed to opt for chemical castration as a means of treatment and rehabilitation? A Republican lawmaker from Oklahoma, Rick West, wants more than that. He is promoting a new bill according to which a person found guilty of a sexual assault will be demanded to take drugs meant to lower testosterone and, consequently, sexual desire in order to be released from prison. In case of a second offense, the drugs will be mandatory unless otherwise stated by the court.

West claims the law is meant to protect the public, children in particular, from sexual predators. West thinks that most of his constituents are in favor of this bill […]

Is Anime Just For Kids? No. And Here’s Why

February 1st, 2018|0 Comments

(Source)

It’s a commonly held belief that anime is just for kids, and if you have ever scrolled through the anime section on Netflix, you’d probably be forgiven for that assumption. Many of the more mainstream shows, like Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Digimon and many others, are cartoons for kids. However, just as some western cartoons are not designed for kids (think BoJack Horseman, Family Guy, Rick, and Morty), not every anime is either. Below are a few reasons why you should give anime some further consideration in your viewing schedule.

Culture

Anime is so much more than a simple cartoon show or film. Because it is a Japanese creation, its roots trace back to the ancient theatre forms of Noh and Kabuki. That’s […]

New Recruitment will Affect the NFL 2018 Draft

February 1st, 2018|0 Comments

As most fans know, the 2018 NFL draft is once again full of top candidate players. This year, there’s been a number of elite players who declared for the draft – like Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Lamar Jackson and of course, Baker Mayfield who is expected to make a big impact early on in his career.

Oh, and let’s not forget about some of the non-quarterback players, like Penn State’s Saquon Barkley and University of Texas Connor Williams who could also be selected in the top 10. Perhaps the most important question, however, is “which team will select these players to join their roster and help them get to the Super Bowl?”
