The world without religion - much like the world with?
On the plane en route from Milan to Dubai – cramped in coach beginning to read Richard Dawkins “The God Delusion” – unable to use the net to see any responses, I am writing strictly based on an early pass. In the preface, Mr. Dawkins reflects on his dicumentary presented in the UK entitled: “Root ...

Too Much ‘Reality’ News

By Daniel McKay
Too Much 'Reality' News
We need to demand reality in the news, not ‘reality news’.  Reality news, not what news is supposed to be reporting on, “reality”, but “Road Rules” reality has plagued the news the past years. Gone are the days where “Judge Joe Matthews” and “People’s Court” are confined to your local channel’s 2pm lineup, you can ...

Why Taxing the Wealthy and Giving to the Poor Makes Sense
I apologize for the irregular posting, I’ve had a lot come up lately. But amidst all the personal drama I figured I would share an insight, a reminder for many of you. We should be taxing the wealthy and giving money to the poor. It is simple economics, in fact I was just explaining it ...

Princeton Moses Gbah: The Republican Party's Path Forward
Decades from now, when Political Historians are analyzing their way through the archives of American Political History, they shall conclude with unanimous certitude, that the 2012 Presidential Election results were indeed an insidious apogee of the Republican Party’s descent into political abyss. A defeat brought upon by political malpractice, self-injurious behavior foiled amid a tidal-wave ...

Are We Subsidizing the Wal-Marts and McDonalds of America? 1

Are We Subsidizing the Wal-Marts and McDonalds of America?
I’m not a huge fan of Wal-Mart, although I can say I’ve strolled the aisles. For me it isn’t just their employment policies, their enormous size and leverage on domestic suppliers, or that they aimed to profit off the deaths of their employees. It’s my compassion for fair employment and the burden it places on ...

Cutting Taxes on Millionaires DOESN'T Increase Economic Growth
I’ll try to keep this post short. The question is whether or not cutting taxes on the super-rich actually does as much as those who advocate it think it should. A new study out by Laura Tyson and Owen Zidar of UC Berkeley suggests that Romney’s tax plan advocating a 20% across the board tax cut would ...

By Daniel McKay
The Disenfranchisement of the American Middle-Class
In a well-functioning representative government, people irrespective of status and resources can voice their opinions to their representatives. The United States is NOT a well-functioning representative government. Repeatedly, and almost relentlessly the government has ignored the sentiments of the masses in favor of the few. The reason for the continued disregard for public opinion comes ...

The American Caste Society - In Class Warfare Money Rules
The United States comes closest to the ideal of prosperity for all in a classless society. – Richard Nixon to Soviet premier Nikita Khruschev, 1959 I wish this could be said today, as it was said in 1959. The real prospect of the “American Dream” is more folklore than a reality for many Americans today. ...

Why Healthcare Should Be Provided To All 2

By Daniel McKay
Why Healthcare Should Be Provided To All
Health is a public good. Healthcare is a moral obligation. Whether or not you choose to believe either one of these statements probably determines whether or not you support universal healthcare. One cannot simply argue that it is a moral dilemma and expect to win over a crowd that could care less. You have to instead appeal ...
