The changing face of rape


Today, in my office, I over heard two men talking about how rape has changed. One of them made the comment that rape doesn’t happen the same way that it did fifty years ago, and now we have to be suspicious of rape allegations. I held my tongue, of course, and went back to what … Continue reading

Amelia Earhart

  Amelia Earhart has become an American mystery. She was born in 1897, and was an author and pilot. She was the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and she received the Distinguished Flying Cross for setting this record. She set many more records and wrote numerous books about her experiences as … Continue reading

The Sandy Hook Shooting – Fully Exposed


This video is half an hour long, but worth a watch. I am in no way saying that the massacre at Sandy Hook didn’t happen. However, there are something things in the video that, if they are true, make the situation seem suspicious. For example, there are conflicting reports about the number, type, and location … Continue reading

Happy New Year’s

Happy New Year’s


I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and I hope 2013 is fabulous for everyone. I was writing this post to let everyone know that AAA is providing a service called the “Tipsy Tow” between the hours of 10 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and 3 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Anyone who wishes to take advantage … Continue reading

Should we encourage guns in schools?


President Obama supports legislation banning assault weapons, along with other gun control measures. While I respect the President and our government, I don’t think banning weapons is necessarily the best option. Timothy McVeigh didn’t use a single firearm in his attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. However, he killed 168 innocent people, … Continue reading

Well, this puts a damper on things

The ‘homeless’ man, Jeffrey Hillman, has an apartment in the Bronx that is paid for via a combination of rent vouchers, … Continue reading

“Legitimate rape” comments don’t pay off. Shocking, right?

“Legitimate rape” comments don’t pay off. Shocking, right?


It’s no secret that many politicians say absurd things about women’s reproductive rights. Apparently, voters don’t approve. Representative Todd Akin and Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock lost their respective races last night. If you’re wondering, Akin was the guy who made the comments about a woman’s reproductive system shutting down and preventing pregnancy if … Continue reading

The patrol car has been painted pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It will patrol different areas and raise Breast Cancer Awareness The Sheriff, Mike Hale, said “We love … Continue reading

Obama & Persuasion: How to Become President


This is yet another recycled psychology discussion question, as I seldom have time to do “real” blog posts anymore. Please keep in mind that I don’t necessarily support Obama just because I wrote about him for an assignment. This paper does not reflect my political beliefs. Identify a figure from politics, religion, business, or television who is … Continue reading
