Gun Violence in America: A Stance

I am not trying to be funny at all. I am more of a knife person.  Guns can be used to protect, but they also can be used to ensure a kill. The difference between a gun and a knife is- I could obliterate a mall, school, densely populated area, a house of worship in a matter of seconds, reload and do it all over again. You can’t do that with a knife. I do have to say, had I lived in a world where guns were used to ensure that game killed was so my family could eat or to prevent a threat from happening- I might have a different perspective. My lived experience with guns has been in one of fear. When I was 2 years old I remember having a gun placed to my head in a car. Jewelry rob, money stolen, and my life was the bargaining chip- let me tell you even at 2 years old y...

Trump Administration​ To Cut Billions From Education

The White House under the Trump administration wants a 12% cut in Educational funding, which translates to roughly $7.1 Billion gone. Poof. Vanish. Education no more.  While congress opposes this budget proposal, the Trump administration surely will find a way to get a measure of their wants fulfilled.  This news is quite troubling, as someone who has been greatly fortunate to attend a college the access to the knowledge I’ve acquired is laying an essential framework for my future. I imagine countless other students who would strongly oppose any cuts to education, as it is already it’s tough and to add undue stress to the building blocks of success is heartless. The details on Trumps Administration cut to education proposal includes  -The federal government ...

The Death Penalty Is Revived In The United States of America

Men are playing God...again. The death penalty in America under Attorney General William Barr is strongly being considered. A new execution protocol, replacing the three-drug cocktail previously used in federal executions with the single drug, pentobarbital. The last federal execution was carried out in 2003. While The Supreme Court outlawed state and federal death penalty laws in the 1972 decision Furman v. Georgia it was not an absolute ruling. The federal death penalty was reinstated in 1988, and expanded by Congress in 1994 and is only implemented under those criminals that are deem "the worse of the bunch". Executions have been scheduled for Daniel Lewis Lee, Lezmond Mitchell, Wesley Ira Purkey, Alfred Bourgeois and Dustin Lee Honken between December 2019 and January 2020. What...

Report: Matt Lauer had secret button under desk to trap women in office

A button that allegedly allowed him to lock the door behind those who would enter, and, he would never have to get out of his chair. In a report published by The Atlantic, the magazine,  goes on to claim that NBC knew of the locking mechanism -- but did nothing about it. They essentially were the sole enablers of Matt Lauer 's rumored reign of terror as the most powerful man in journalism. The originating report reportedly came from  Variety, followed by, The New York Times. In all three reports, former staff members and some of the women he assaulted have come forth about the button.  The button, perhaps, serves as the single most terrifying fact we've seen yet in the litany of assault allegations at the hands of powerful men. In the first article,   a former staff member claimed th...

Rumor Report: Hurricane Irma Aftermath, Florida, and “Food Stamps”

Facebook is the birth place of many things, including, uh, the aforementioned fake news. And in this case, Facebook, actually birthed partially true news.  Earlier this week,   a Facebook post emerged online that claimed people that were in the midst of Irma could get 'free food stamps". Not so fast. While there's an element of truth here,  this, isn't quite as it seems.  Florida officials tell The Daily News that "people sort of misunderstood" what that meant. So let's break it down.  People who already get snap in Florida (snap is what Food Stamps are called)   will get them as normal.   However, if a federal government request by Florida to activate something called '"Disaster Snap" goes through, people, will actually get assistance with food despite never having got food stamps b...
