    Thank You, Mr. Cleese

    Thank You, Mr. Cleese

    Just 30 words attributed to John Cleese was enough to encourage me to look further into how protectionist international trade is. Is the international market for goods and services encased in protectionist policies? Are there any countries that are totally free of such policies? Or, are all countries guilty of protectionism?

    Could Kanye or Kid Rock Save the 2020 Election or Is Celebrity Damaging Politics?

    Could Kanye or Kid Rock Save the 2020 Election or Is Celebrity Damaging Politics?

    As American citizens become increasingly disengaged with American politics, there has been a rise in the ‘celebrity politician.’ The ‘celebrity politician’ is a celebrity character that uses their status as a celebrity to secure credibility in the political sphere. With a rise in a celebrity culture in America, fueled by social media growth, people are losing faith in traditional politicians and instead looking to popular celebrities to run the country. But isn’t Trump evidence enough that celebrity doesn't work in the White House? With celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and Kanye West expressing their political views and wishes to run in the 2020 presidential election, could celebrity influence now make all of the difference in politics?

    Anna Duggar Update: Sadly, She’s Feeling Like Her Old Self Again

    We’re approaching the fourth anniversary of the Josh Duggar sex scandal, one of the biggest stories to rock the Christian patriarchy. In August 2015, Gawker discovered that former 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar was a victim of the hackers who targeted Ashley Madison, a website used to arrange extramarital affairs. Josh confessed to being unfaithful to his wife and suffering from an addiction to pornography.

    John Cusack Can Sit if He Wants To

    Pity poor John Cusack. The once successful actor, now relegated to what was once called "Straight to Video," when there was such a thing, caught some flak lately for his off-duty performance at a Cubs game. A local news outlet snapped a shot of the grumpy-looking celeb sitting in his seat during a pre-game tribute to the US military.

    Reason First: Does Nicki Minaj  Know More About Individual Rights Than President Trump?

    Reason First: Does Nicki Minaj Know More About Individual Rights Than President Trump?

    If only the Human Rights Foundation could change its name to the Individual Rights Foundation. While it is redundant to say “individual rights,” in today’s climate, it is necessary to reinforce the rights of the individual human being. And that’s what rapper Nicki Minaj has grasped. It’s too bad President Trump has failed to do this. As Minaj has canceled a show in a Saudi Arabia music festival after learning about how women, the LGBTQ community, and everyone else must endure oppression through the ill recognition of freedom of speech in that monarchy. The president should really be held accountable.

    Ye and "Free Thought"

    Ye and "Free Thought"

    Music is an integral part of the culture in America. Specifically hip-hop, which according to USA Today, has recently overtaken rock as the most listened to genre in the US. Because of this, influential artists have become household names, inspiring children across the country and connecting listeners from all walks of life. While rappers have always been the topic of conversation due to their sometimes braggadocious tendencies and contentious statements, there is one artist who has been the talk of the nation for all the wrong reasons, Kanye West, a rapper from Chicago. Over the last couple of months, Kanye has become a polarizing figure in the music industry, causing a stir of controversy from his unconventional and perverse statements, in actuality, he’s a complex individual who has made valid points, which have been construed against him by the media and his peers.

    The Pop Face of Politics

    The Pop Face of Politics

    Full disclosure, this may become a book at some point. The research involved was extensive and well worth it. Also, the feud between the people involved is not going to die away like a pop song after a few weeks at the top of the charts. Cardi B broke onto the national stage last year with her hit single "Bodak Yellow" and followed it up with a string of #1 rap songs that still hasn't ended. Lady Gaga has been around for a while longer and also has a string of hits, and is currently winning awards for her first movie performance in A Star is Born. Outside of being born in New York City (The Bronx for Cardi B, Manhattan for Gaga), these ladies are feuding with high profile Conservatives and the result is an interesting mix of politics and pop culture.
