Anticipation for fall is at an all time high this time of year. Maybe it’s the fact that fall weather has been replaced with 80 degree days in mid-September or that seniors have been completing college application essays since the day they were released.

It seems preposterous in this day and age,  the United States would be facing a lack of clean water in the United States.  This very situation, however, is exactly the case in Flint, Michigan.

“I’m a feminist.” This is a statement that strikes fear into the hearts of men everywhere. But why should it? After all, feminism isn’t about women’s superiority- not at all.

As winter approaches, the need for coats, mittens, hats, and scarves is rapidly growing. For many, the Salvation Army seems like a selfless company, determined to keep homeless people warm, well fed, and off the streets, but, before donating, take a look at this “helpful” charity’s history.   ...

Confirmed: ROC Polls is run by jellyfish. This is the only logical way this inexcusable, hurtful, ignorant display could have possibly come about. Obviously, spineless, barely dexterous, cowardly creatures, who lack the brain function for basic humanity or morals, have combined their efforts to ...
