No New Posts Being a woman is not easy

"I've struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, which it is something that God intended to happen." -Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock

No New Posts Correctional System in the United States of American

The 13th Amendment bans slavery "except as punishment for crime." The 14th Amendment bans debt servitude. But each inmate in a modern-day private prison, according to Chris Hedges, "can generate corporate revenues of $30,000 to $40,000 a year." Prisoners accused of minor drug crimes have replaced the vagrants. And private probation companies are keeping them in debt. The system seems little different from the corrupt local governments in the deep South a century ago.

No New Posts Education Issues

Our children are our future treasure. They will be the ones that take care of us in our old age. They will be the ones who will either build up our future or tear it down.

No New Posts Environmental Issues

Many organizations are opposed to a carbon tax in any form. Yet, global warming is occurring, our climate is changing and we as citizens of the world must try whatever measures to slow, if not stop this from happening.

No New Posts Gun Control-The Second Amendment

A collective rights theory of the Second Amendment asserts that citizens do not have an individual right to possess guns and that local, state, and federal legislative bodies therefore possess the authority to regulate firearms without implicating a constitutional right.

No New Posts Immigration Reform

Employers who hire undocumented workers, love the Congress is sidestepping immigration reform. The reason why is that they continue to have a slave labor force to work with: paying low wages (less than the Federal minimum wage), they know that they can work these folks until they drop because who are these undocumented workers going to complain to, the employers do not need any form of Workers' Compensation Insurance. It is GREAT for business. We need to change this

No New Posts Mental Illness

Mental disorders are common in the United States and internationally. An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. When applied to the 2004 U.S. Census residential population estimate for ages 18 and older, this figure translates to 57.7 million people.

No New Posts Money in Politics

Our elected officials are elected by us, one vote at a time. However, it is the big money from wealthy folks who fund these campaigns. When it comes down to seeking support for some cause, who is that politician going to answer to: the person with a single vote or a company/person who gave that same politician a million dollars?

No New Posts Social Safety Nets in America

In America we are encouraged to disregard logic and obvious reality for the sake of ideology. The ideology is present to maintain not only a status quo, but a country where only a select few will ever have the opportunity to be wealthy. It is a ‘me first’ and selfish ideology. It is an ideology where wealth is built on the backs of the middle class and the poor, Class Warfare.

No New Posts Voting in a Free Society

Voting rights are under attack in this country as state legislatures nationwide pass voter suppression laws under the pretext of preventing voter fraud and safeguarding election integrity. These voter suppression laws take many forms, and collectively lead to significant burdens for eligible voters trying to exercise their most fundamental constitutional right.
