Immigration Reform

One of the biggest issues in the United States for the past few years has been immigration reform. There are many people who think that we should send anyone here illegally back home immediately. Another sect of the population would like to see a ruling that allows a full sweeping legalization of those here illegally currently, while making it easier for others to get in legally. I’ve been back and forth on the topic myself for a few years and feel as if I have finally stumbled across an idea that may help with this issue. Continue reading

A Star is Born

star-lotuleleiI’m a diehard Carolina Panthers fan, I have been since the day they were announced as an expansion franchise so many years ago. Over all those years I’ve seen some moments in the draft that I absolutely loved (DeAngelo Williams), moments I absolutely hated (Mike Seidman, because we skipped over Jason Witten), and moments that had me a bit confused (Luke Kuechly), but I always pay attention.

That, to me, sounds like saying that you have a problem with pedophiles molesting kids in the area so you’re going to add more pedophiles to try to curb the molestations. Continue reading

Gay Marriage: What’s Right Is Right

marriage-equality-meme-450x448 I might be putting myself out there with this, but it’s my opinion and this is a free country so you have absolutely every right to feel it’s wrong. I will admit to be a pretty liberal guy, yet somehow I get a lot of friends from the opposite side of the aisle. I think this is mainly because I am willing to accept that both sides have their faults and their bright spots. One thing that I feel pretty strongly about is the topic of gay marriage. There are many people who say that it’s a horrible idea for whatever reason, I personally don’t see what their problem is and think this needs to be legalized sooner than later. Continue reading
