America

Trump’s Turnkey Tyranny and Obama’s Drones

We must not propagate Barack Obama’s eight year tenure as President until we understand the consequences behind everything in his term. Democrats – do not shout about how 44 was the “greatest president in recent memory” just yet. Republicans – do not refer to how 44 was the “worst president in American history” just yet…or

U.S. Constitution

Get Your Free Copy of the U.S. Constitution

If you, like Donald Trump, haven’t read the United States Constitution: now’s your chance to do so for free. Although you can get digital copies for free online thanks to the freedom of information, the ACLU is generously offering everyone a free copy of the pocket edition for the United States Constitution (usually five dollars) from now until Election Day.

American Revolution

The History of America: Howe’s Perspective

William Howe saw North America rather clearly: as a threat. Not just any threat, however; William Howe saw the colonies as a rage-induced organization of militias who were banding together against the misdeeds of the British government. William Howe had one personal question for the colonials: how long could they keep it going?

Lexington

The History of America: The American Revolution

In a tense social situation where colonialists were staring at government problems from across an ocean, one could only predict when the final match would burn down the thirteen colonies’ relationship with the motherland. Mercantilism was beginning to actually backfire, to the dismay of the British crown, but it is sad to realize that the people in power refused to actually change their ideals and laws towards the people that were obviously receiving the short end of the stick.

Church and State

The RNC Has A Religious Message For You

It’s embarrassing to see just how narrow the Republican establishment is making this convention. To narrowly “pray” for officer deaths and not bring up the mass shootings and diverse racial problems in America is already narrow-minded. To narrow down the nation through religious guidance, you’ve labeled your party as “The Party of The Religious”. That’s not how you make America “Great Again”. That’s how you further divide up the people of your nation. You’ve established yourself as nearing theocracy; from Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee to the inclusion of religion in a political party resorting in so-called secular nation.

Blue Lives Matter

Moment of Silence for Officers, NOT Victims of Mass Shootings

The GOP Convention is starting the way anyone could assume it would have, with chairman Reince Priebus asking for a “brief moment of silence” for specifically the “officers slain” in previous days – specifically citing Baton Rouge and Dallas. The convention basically starts with a leading Republican figure shouting out #BlueLivesMatter! How the hell are independents and Democrats supposed to hear this? It truly shows that the Republican Party is backing away from their previous stance of “All Lives Matter”, which is completely and utterly flawed in argument concepts to begin with, to enforce authoritative ideologies.

Disaster Protection Handbook

The Disaster Protection Handbook for School Administrators

It’s 1959, and the world is on the brink of destruction. But thanks to this handy dandy little guide, you – as the administrator of [INSERT EDUCATIONAL FACILITY] – can make sure the next generation can survive anything. No school in America can be certain that it is entirely safe from total and utter annihilation through threat of attack. From small nuclear bombs to bacteriological warfare, it’s important that you, as an administrator, have a detailed plan from start to finish memorized like the back of your hand. After all, where would these great United States be without the next generation of educated minds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics?

The History of America: The Initial Rejection of an Empire

The end of the war for empire showed the powerhouse of Britain that debt wasn’t just a fictional plague. It was indeed a reality, and the Royal Government of Britain was over 122 million pounds of sterling silver in debt. Quite a large amount; this was a good sixty percent of all British revenues. Similar to how the French Revolution started, Britain had a large population that was paying more taxes than people that could actually afford it. Eight million people in Britain were being overloaded with new taxes, and the Treaty of Paris hastily demobilized large parts of the Royal Military so that the government wouldn’t have had to pay for soldiers they no longer needed.
