Targeted killings miss the mark

In the past four years, 326 reported U.S. drone strikes have occurred within Pakistan with an estimated 1,707 to 3,025 deaths – more than 400 of them reported to be civilian bystanders. All of this within a country that the United States is not at war with. Under President Barack Obama’s administration, the use of unmanned, combat air vehicles, or drones, armed with missiles and surveillance... 

Let’s keep race out of election politics

Let's keep race out of election politics
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Former governor of New Hampshire and top Romney surrogate John Sununu paid a visit to CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” last week. During the interview with Morgan, Sununu suggested that former secretary of state Colin Powell is supporting President Barack Obama because they are of the same race. Looking at the two candidates in the 2012 election, Barack Obama... 

Put issues above appearance

As the presidential election is almost upon us, the people of the United States have been subjected to the petty slap attacks between our two major candidates over the course of the debates. Audiences have watched as the candidates have bounced insults and ideas off each other and reacted on-the-spot to criticism. But the question has to be asked: What about the reactions of the undecided voters who... 

Students still support Obama for president

Katie Madden Staff Writer Several students at University of La Verne plan to lend their voice and give their vote this year at the upcoming presidential election. Although students categorize themselves within several different political parties, a majority of students polled plan on voting for Barrack Obama this November.

Commentary: Debate proves to be a school yard brawl

<i>Commentary</i>: Debate proves to be a school yard brawl
Alex Forbess, Editorial Director So here is the storyline of the presidential debates the United States have seen so far. First, it was anarchy with Republican nominee Mitt Romney throwing more misinterpreted facts, yet President Barack Obama was too zoned out to counter-attack, which led some political junkies to his work. Then there was the Vice-Presidential Debate on Oct. 11, where it was a “release... 

Commentary: Democracy in the 21st century: What a joke

<i>Commentary</i>: Democracy in the 21st century: What a joke
Alex Forbess, Editorial Director It was chaos; disgusting glorious chaos. That is pretty much what I can say about Wednesday’s general debate. Overall, I fooled myself. Despite all the negative, sometimes irrelevant, garbage that both parties have been throwing at each other, I believed that President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would take those 90 minutes to present... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kudos to President Obama for voicing his approval of gay marriage. It was a courageous act, considering the incredible bigotry and hatred that some people are directing at our LGBT brethren. I hear people use Biblical quotations to justify their positions against gays/lesbians, and it reminds me of the 1960s, when I was a Civil Rights Worker trying to change our treatment of Black people... 

Commentary: Hey, America, change takes time

<i>Commentary</i>: Hey, America, change takes time
Alex Forbess, Staff Writer It is all right, America; these four years have been frustrating, but you will rejoice once you witness President Barack Obama being kicked out of office during the inauguration. Republicans can pat themselves on the back as they revealed that Obama’s mission for change was a lie, stating it would lead to numerous failures and excessive government control. So relax, because... 

Military power goes too far

As United States citizens, we are often told about the horrors of the police state. Soldiers patrolling throughout cities, rifles at the ready to arrest and detain anyone engaging in suspicious behavior, with no one to answer to except for themselves. Most of us would like to believe that this type of atrocious action could never occur on home soil. However, thanks to the recent passing of the National...
