Fr. Greg Shaffer, the head chaplain of the Newman Center at The George Washington University, is currently being persecuted for teaching doctrine “consistent with that of the Catholic Church.” Two students are upset by his stance on homosexual acts and gay marriage, so they want him removed from the university and the GW Catholics’ Club funding reduced. I guess if you don’t support homosexuality 100%, you just don’t deserve access to the student association funds that part of your tuition goes toward. This is wrong, as Catholics shouldn’t be persecuted by gays for their beliefs. I preach against bullying...Read More

Ever since Steven Landsburg, an economics professor at my university, published a blog post dealing with the rape of unconscious individuals, my Facebook home page has been flooded with discussions of the topic. Some of the men, or rather boys, at my school have used this forum to describe how taking advantage of drunken girls at a party is different from raping them. I’m pretty sure the people in the Steubenville case thought the same thing, but look where they ended up.

In the first half of this two-part article, I explained how the United States got into this economic mess we are stuck in.

Ah, the good ole’ United States of Avarice, a country where responsibility has died and been replaced by unsustainable get-rich-quick schemes. A country that has been greedy for far too long. A country with a new generation that will be punished for the sins of its fathers. This is the country that we live in. The recent recession serves as a rude wake up call to Americans today, just as the Great Depression was a message to those who prospered in the Roaring Twenties. Instead of learning from our mistakes, though, we are still trying to avoid taking the...Read More
In President Obama’s recent State of the Union address, he exclaimed, “It is our generation’s task, then, to reignite the true engine of America’s economic growth – a rising, thriving middle class.” This reminded me of the creation of Vice President Joe Biden’s Middle Class Task Force back in 2009. It was originally hailed as a “major initiative targeted at raising the living standards of middle-class, working families in America,” but faded from memory after it failed to produce results that would help the middle class. There are so many things that are wrong with the Task Force that...Read More
