Relearning American Spirituality

My DVD collection would not be complete without my seasons of LOST. The story that portrays dozens of plane crash survivors tries to survive through famine, captivity, and terror attacks explores the contrast between good and evil. LOST portrays the definition of a spiritual journey. The show’s intricate plot line and thought-provoking twists make it one of the better-produced shows of the past decade. While the show’s top level question is “How far are you willing to go to survive?”, the underlying proposition given to the audience by J.J. Abrams and his team is unequivocally “Can there be multiple...

Student Loan Interest to Double, Democrats Plug Their Ears

This article was originally published on June 21, 2013. If you have not been paying attention to the current crisis surrounding student loans, you should be. In less than two weeks, the interest on student loans are about to double – yes, double – from 3.4% to 6.8%. This is greatly concerning for both the next generation’s collegians as well as current students;  the whole concept of post high school education appears even more bleak.

3 Takeaways from Michael Bay’s Disaster

The College Conservative has done many reviews of popular films over the past few months. Some of these include Noah, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and most recently, Dinesh D’Souza’s America. I’ve seen all of the films, and I’ve been impressed with all three.

Michael Bay’s Transformers 4: Age of Extinction has to be one of the worst films of the summer, if not the entire year. What makes it so bad is the producer’s arrogance and belittlement to the...

Control, Hypocrisy, and the Redskins

Anyone who follows football will tell you that the biggest problems the Washington Redskins face during this football season are (1) RG3’s knee stability, (2) their horrible excuse for a defensive line (ranked 32nd in the league), and (3) their Swiss cheese-like secondary that allowed more yards per game to opposing quarterbacks than any other in the league. As football a football team, these should be the issues they should be worried about. As football fans, you deserve to see a great team play a great game, and these should be the issues you should want to see them fix. But,...

#YesAllWomen Needs to be Re-Oriented

Just over a week ago, Elliot Rodger opened fire on students in Santa Barabra in a demonic plea for help. This mentally ill individual acted out of rage fueled by a false sense of entitlement and his own maniacal indignation. His rage took innocent lives, lives that likely had a very bright future before they were ripped from our twisted, internally ill world. Elliot Rodger was a man who, despite seeing a number of therapists, had gone off the rails and become a victim of his own hell on earth. He is the subject of a much larger debate...
