After the recent election, it is very clear to me, we now live in two very different countries within our shores.
I was born in 1962. JFK was President, Johnny Carson had just begun The Tonight Show, The Supreme Court voted to ban school prayer, the median fixed income was $6,000, a house costs $15,000, and a gallon of gas was a meager $.25 cents. But, things were much different back then because people were much different. There was greater unity throughout the land as I grew up, and the American dream was alive and well to all who were willing to work and succeed. America had its problems,... Read More
After hundreds of rallies, thousands of miles flown back and forth across the US by the presidential candidates, and billions of dollars in political advertising, the 2012 election campaign has entered its final 24 hours as voters prepare to deliver their verdict on Tuesday.At the end of one of the most polarising, relentless and expensive campaigns in recent US political history, the final batch of polls on Monday showed Barack Obama and Mitt Romney basically where they were at the start of the year: stuck in a dead heat.Both teams claim to be on course to win, as they completed what should...

The Economy. Money. Jobs. Your Future, and the future of our youth. It’s filling the minds of everyone these days especially during this super-heated political election. People are more concerned than ever about what their future holds, and rightly so. Millions are looking for work, or have stopped searching at all with little hope. It isn’t the America I grew up in, and one in desperate need of a new direction.
America was founded on self-reliant, entrepreneurial principles. A nation where people are free to dictate their own future, create their own jobs, and look out for themselves,... Read More
The ultimate in political game playing was on display Thursday night as VP Joe Biden, and Rep. Paul Ryan squared off in their first and only Vice Presidential Debate.
Right from the start, it was clear Biden came for, and was looking to start a boxing match, a chance to mug for the cameras and make up some much-needed ground his boss lost from days prior. Well, he probably guzzled down a couple of Red Bulls before clearly making an ass out of himself building on his momentum as being one of the most disrespected, and laughed at politicians of our era. I guarantee Obama was gripping his... Read More
It seems that the Government received a warning in 2011 that changes to student numbers would result to problems in university and college admission, Tim Moynihan reports for The Independent, citing documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Times Higher Education.
For the cycle years 2011 to 2012, around 620,000 aspiring students submitted their applications, along with other papers like personal statement, to the Universities and Colleges Admission Service or UCAS, hoping to be accepted by their chosen higher education schools. Choosing a university or college is easier... Read More
I was recently talking with one of our nation’s youth (19 years old) when the subject of politics came up, that dreaded word which has sparked many heated debates, especially lately. We were about ten seconds into the conversation when he quickly said, “I don’t like that Romney guy.”
I said, “Really, why not?”
“Because he’s rich.”
Taken back a little, I then asked, “What’s wrong with being rich? Wouldn’t you like to be rich someday?”
“Then, why don’t you like Mitt Romney?”
“Because he was given his money, his daddy started him... Read More
