The opportunities for a high school graduate are pitiful. Today's young people have nothing to look forward to. College is an unaffordable luxury for most, with no guarantees that it will be worth the sacrifices and time spent. Nor are there programs for different learning abilities. The news is that jobless rates are extremely high and the economy is extremely down. Housing, food and entertainment are unaffordable. When a young person is at their healthiest, most exuberant time in life, ready to be in the world and show themselves to be vibrant and contribute their talents and abilities, we... Read More

We’re killing off our Pacific salmon population at an alarming rate and the situation is getting worse. This year there will probably be no salmon fishing season. If we keep going the way we’re going, I predict that the Pacific salmon will be completely extinct within our lifetimes, maybe sooner. We have to do everything we can to save this beautiful fish.

Salmon live most of their lives in the ocean but they are born and die in rivers and streams. Many West Coast rivers and streams have been seriously damaged by development. Dams block access to freshwater spawning habitat.... Read More

When Oklahoma ’s State Representative Sally Kern was recently recorded while making several statements like, "Gay's are worst than terrorists," to a private assembly of fifty conservative republicans speaking about her views of the Gay community, she created a public outcry.

If Sally Kern studied World History, then she would have known her actions are very similar to what Hitler did when he created the Nazi Party. According to the international 2007 Hate Crime Survey by the Human Rights First organization, "Bias crimes motivated by sexual orientation, like those motivated by... Read More

Introduction In the 1990's when I was contemplating learning Spanish, I was told repeatedly by well-meaning friends that if I really wanted to learn Spanish I would have to live in a country in which Spanish was the dominate spoken tongue. If you Google "Spanish Immersion," you will get 1,790,000 hits. After exhausting myself by reading about 250 websites, all of which tried very hard to get me to enroll in their costly Spanish Immersion Courses located in various Spanish-speaking countries, which would have required me to re-mortgage my home a billion times plus hope some rich philanthropist...

The 33-year-old marketing manager and mother-to-be recently turned her war writings into a book. “In the Company of Soldiers” is the story of her time in Iraq.

Meichelbock took the time for an exclusive email Q&A with BrooWaha to discuss being separated from her unit, a poignant moment while frisking an Iraqi woman and the important role females play in the military.

BrooWaha: When were you in Iraq and what was your position?

Melia: My position was a Civil Affairs Specialist (civil assistance, rebuilding efforts, elections, etc...). We meet with the local leaders to... Read More

Until Ronald Reagan’s second term in 1984, there was a saying in the political arena: As goes California, so goes America. In those days it meant that whatever position or candidate was supported by the majority of California the rest of the nation seemed to follow suit. Beginning in 1988 when George Herbert Walker Bush was elected president the tide began to turn because of the increasing amount of liberalism coming from California. Fortunately, the rest of America is a bit more conservative than California so many of the ultra left-wing wacko ideas that crawl out of the San... Read More

Before I go any further its worth noting, that I, and I would imagine countless others who are independent of party lines, view Senator Obama as a positive and inspirational force on the political landscape, and I truly believe that he doesn’t subscribe to Wright’s incinerating, divisive and hate filled views. However, it does bring into question Obama’s judgment, and perhaps even his truthfulness.

For almost two decades, Senator Obama, along with his wife and children attended the Trinity Unity Church of Christ, a Chicago based church, headed by his “spiritual... Read More
