Lack of leadership is just lazy

Near the end of the Bush Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lost its former director and most likely figured the new president would take the responsibility to fill the position. However, we are nearly 16 months into Barack Obama’s presidency and he has yet to nominate a director to run the ATF, which has the responsibility to police weapons traffic. Instead of...

First steps may not leave big prints

First steps may not leave big prints
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief Is it time to breathe yet? Is the health care debate finally over after months of political posturing? Answers seem to point in the direction of yes after President Obama signed the law a few weeks ago, but after the entire process, it still seems like an initial step to improve the American health care system; a first step in the direction of universal health care, something... 

What health care reform means

Since President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009, most Americans have been patiently awaiting the first big step his administration would take in shaping America into the hopeful new country that was promised to us in his campaign speeches. Now, more than a year later, Obama has finally delivered his first major win: the health care bill. With the passing of the health care reform bill on Sunday,... 

Census is crucial for America

Last week every household in the United States recieved their large white Census envelope to complete and return to the government in order to calculate how many people are living within our borders. And while the task of indicating how many individuals live in your house, as well as their ages, is seemingly innocent, it has garnered some unwarranted criticism from big government foes.

Wanted: One good candidate

CPAC auditions as a comedy show

CPAC auditions as a comedy show
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief No “30 Rock”? No “Office”? The Winter Olympics might have prevented your usual NBC laughs last week (and this week) but there was something on C-SPAN that could have just as easily filled your comedic void. C-SPAN isn’t usually synonymous with laugh out loud comedy, despite what Jon Stewart is able to do with it, but the annual Conservative Political Action...
