Supreme Court Correcting The Abortion Error
There is no doubt that the U.S. Supreme Court has made some major blunders in their history. After all, the members of the court are human like the rest of us and capable of mistakes. Haven’t we all messed up from time to time? One of the more notorious instances of this was the Plessy v. Ferguson case establishing the “Separate but Equal” doctrine for segregated education. Some would argue that the ruling to allow a mandate to purchase health insurance in 2012 was pretty bad too. But perhaps the most egregious instance was the nationwide legalization of abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973.
Why Mirrorless Cameras Are My Go-To Option
It was quite a few years back when I became more serious about photography. I graduated from the basic point and shoot to what some call a bridge camera. That would be something of a hybrid between a point and shoot and a digital SLR. Basically, this is a camera with a longer zoom and lens that may or may not allow for attachments to extend or adjust the lens. But the key thing here would be that the lens is not removable. A few years later, I decided to make the big jump to a professional-grade unit with interchangeable lenses.
CRT and Racial Division
It was August 28, 1963 when we first heard the immortal words to the “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Perhaps the most captivating line was “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Tips For Driving In Winter Weather
Driving in and of itself is no joke. It should always be taken very seriously. In fact, I took it so seriously that I didn't get my license until I was 32 years old! I took driver's ed and all but just didn't feel ready when I was a teen. While most might find that odd, I like to think of it as a responsible and mature choice.
Review of my new Moto G Power
When I get a new cell phone, I am not one to even consider the thought of running out there any buying the latest iPhone, Google Pixel or Samsung Galaxy models that can cost more than some people's luxury car payments, rent or even mortgage. Personally, I think that's ridiculous. I try to find the best option I can at the lowest price point. Having Google Fi as my service, the Moto G Power (2021) was my choice when I make the decision in December. After about a month of use, here are my views on the device.
Natural Options to Boost The Immune System
For quite a while, the world has been very concerned with our immune systems in the era of a strange new virus. But, the truth is, we should always consider the importance of immune health and what we can do to help our internal warriors win their battles against illness.
Favorite (and Least Favorite) Christmas Songs
Right after Thanksgiving, or in some cases such as in stores and on overzealous radio stations, you begin to hear Christmas music fill the air. For each of us who celebrate the season, we have our favorite songs and we likely have some that we could do without as well. These are a few of the tunes I adore along with a couple I wouldn't mind tossing out of my musical lexicon.
Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict A Study In Criminal Law
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for a year, you’ve heard the name Kyle Rittenhouse and likely have an opinion of the young man that fits on either side of two extremes. Either he’s a monster or simply a kid defending himself. As a civilized nation should do, we let the legal system take care of it rather than let it be decided by politicians, talking heads or media drones.
Big Tech Alternatives and a Social Revolution
Big tech has come under a lot of scrutiny over the last few years and the opposition to it seems to be growing daily. People have become disgusted with everything from being bombarded with unsolicited ads to other privacy concerns to unfair and unneeded levels of censorship. Well, there are some options out there for you if you are tired of the power big tech holds over your life. Here are a few.
The Evolving Trump Legacy in Light of a Biden Administration
When you think of the time Donald Trump spent as President, you most likely fall into one of two camps. Roughly half the nation supported or even loved the guy while the other half either disliked or flat-out couldn’t stand him. So, it was no surprise that at the end of his term, he had a lot of people who claimed he did a fantastic job while having a similar number saying the exact opposite.
The Not So Evil Origins of Halloween
This time of year we are coming up on Halloween. With that is mind, you probably know people who have a number of different views regarding how they feel about this annual event. First, there are those who look at it as nothing more than candy and costumes and scary or silly decorations. Then there are others who think it is evil and anti-religious. Then there are historians on the subject and those who look at it via an academic approach. The fact is, most people really don’t know much about the history behind this second largest retail holiday (in America) and how or why we celebrate it.
