Opinion: Billionaires should not exist

Ashley Ness

One billion dollars is a ridiculous amount of money to have. Being in possession of close to $160 billion, as Jeff Bezos does as of June 2020, is absurd and morally wrong. The CEO of Amazon has come under fire several times for the way he uses money within his company. From pathetic worker wages ...

The long-awaited impeachment trial of the 45th president of the United States has arrived. Yet, facing removal from office, President Donald Trump feels invincible. I believe that if the House didn’t have enough evidence we wouldn’t be here. Trump has constantly abused his power as president. Tr...

We aren’t in the Framer’s America anymore, Toto. In one of her most recent tweets, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “Once again, [Donald Trump] has called on a foreign country to interfere in our elections – just the latest example of him putting his personal political gain ahe...

When news broke in early February that Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D-VA) med school yearbook featured a photo of two men in racist garb — one in blackface, the other in full Klan robes — this reporter shook his head, but certainly wasn’t surprised. For those of us who haven’t turned on cable news ...

“In God we trust” doesn’t represent all Americans

Harper Wayne

February 6, 2019

As Americans, are we supposed to believe that the religious clause of the first amendment holds weight, when our dollars pay for the phrase “In God we trust” to be placed on government buildings? Separation of church and state is a part of the First Amendment in the Constitution, stating that, "Co...

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created with a simple and singular goal: to protect human health and the environment. The EPA’s reach extends to the public and private sector, as they are intended to remain unbiased in that pursuit of health. This pursuit has been poisoned by the inclus...

The Feminism Letters: Men should be proud to be fighters for equality.

Haley Clegg

November 1, 2017

Where along the line did feminism become synonymous with “hating men?” Feminism isn’t an attack on men, and it doesn’t claim that men are inferior to women, yet many continue to view it as such. Feminism was created to make all genders have equal opportunity. Over the past century, women have had ...
