Hillary's Health

Hillary’s Health (and Other Presidents…)

Let me explain Hillary’s Health in a historical sense. The concept of attacking a presidential candidate over their physical (or in Trump’s case, mental) health isn’t something new. However, if you take a look at American history, it hasn’t been quite uncommon for presidents and vice presidents to make their way to the White House with incredible ailments you wouldn’t believe of.

Single Life or Married Life?

Is Being Single Better Than Marriage?

For centuries, marriage has been considered a necessary factor in society. One that creates a family unit to work in society while “training” the next generation – the married couples’ kids. We’ve seen multiple changes in social roles – especially in the so-called typical family unit – in the last few decades; thus, we’re seeing the social value of family change before our very eyes.

Slavery in America

The History of America: Slavery Economics

The Chronicles of Climate Change: Humans Hurt the Earth

We live in a rather destruction period of humanity. We are currently witnessing massive changes in global and regional climate patterns, and we’ve been ignoring it since the mid-20th century despite accumulating amounts of evidence and statistics that should severely shock us. We have holes ripping into the O-Zone layer, which protects us from harmful UV sun rays, right above our Arctic and Antarctic regions – causing meltdowns which lead to higher water levels and crises revolving around entire animal groups. Yet we still have climate change deniers.

Here's the Advertisement That Made John Kasich Uncomfortable

When it comes to politics, candidates have to find methods to connect with voters. In the past sixty years, campaign advertisements have relatively stayed the same. When it comes to modern records, it’s incredibly easy to commit negative mudslinging against rival career politicians. John Kasich, the so-called moderate in this race, is no different.
