Life and Death: Unreal Expectations

It is with some trepidation that I write this article because the death of a child is probably the worst thing that can ever happen to a parent. The case of Jahi McMath who was declared brain dead after a "routine" tonsillectomy" made headlines after her parents refused to allow doctors to shut down the ventilator keep her…

From Use Of Which Of The Following Can You Obtain Knowledge? Feelings, Intuition, Prayer, Reason, Hope, Emotions Or Faith.

Time For Revolution

With all the abuses that have happened in this country it is time for a full blown revolution. This long train of abuse has been carried out by not only the United States government but also with the help of corporate America as well.
