California Assemblyman Wants To Tax Internet

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 6, 2008

...nor has it ever been the responsibility of the government – either the state or the federal – to provide an income for you. The responsibility of the government in America is outlined perfectly in the Constitution. Government has no business trying to give you health care, education, money or even a living. This attempt by Assemblyman Calderon is nothing more than trying to steal more money from hard-working Californians and giving it to undeserving, lazy, good-for-nothings and illegal aliens. When are people going to wake up and realize that this has got to stop?... (more)

By TheTruth, published on Mar 30, 2008

...talented children and young adults, ranging in age from eight to 22 years old. Each individual hails from different parts of Uganda; each having lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. These children are highlighted for their dedication on and off the stage, with each one continuing their education from elementary school up to university levels.

As I made my way into the contemporary-styled theatre, I quickly noticed the large stage beautifully draped with a crimson red velvet curtain. I was ushered to my seat only to find out that I practically had the best seat in the... (more)

The Death Of The Video Store

By FreexRus, published on Mar 6, 2008

The year 2000. Fresh out of high school with only the marginal Texas education provided and my after school job at a 5&10 store left me woefully under qualified for most employment positions. A few years of job hopping here in Portland, OR led me to the greatest opportunity I had ever, and probably will ever have. American Family Video, a Mom and Pop rental store on the corner of SE 20th and Burnside welcomed me to the most misunderstood and marginalized members of our society.

We were the video store clerks.

The job was simple. Come to work; put movie returns... (more)

By Steven Lane, published on Feb 25, 2008

...the food and most of all, the people. I like it so much, it is my intention to move there, for at least awhile, in about a year and spend some real time there, as I explore this Latin world in depth. I think about it every day, my heart is totally pumped at the thought of adventure and education in a place I only know from what I have gleaned with a week here or three weeks there.

The problem is that immigrating to Mexico is not a simple thing. The Mexican government has set enough obstacles to ensure that only the wealthy or retired can legally experience life there beyond... (more)

Switching Sides Of The Aisle

By Glenn T, published on Feb 20, 2008

... this Republican administration, we’ve so far spent $495 billion dollars on a war that we can’t seem to stop fighting , $2 billion dollars on a fence between the U.S. and Mexico that we can’t seem to actually build, and hundreds of millions of dollars on a secondary public education system that proudly turned out Ms. Teen South Carolina, it looks like my GOP buddies are now bent on taking my money, too. Great. With my only reason for overlooking my party’s (and its nominee’s) insane social positions gone – it looks like I’m officially crossing ... (more)

Bus Stop 101

By Lynn Downey, published on Feb 12, 2008

Kids can get a great education waiting for a school bus. I know I did. And I’m not talking about comparing the answers to yesterday’s homework. Standing around with a group of people you normally wouldn’t hang out with gives you the opportunity to experience things like self-reliance, thoughtfulness, and group bonding. Unfortunately it also fosters things like fear, intimidation and group tyranny. Which means that a bus stop is a good place to learn how you’re going to react to the adult world while you’re still a kid.

I grew up in Marin County in the... (more)
