Congress Considers Minimum Wage Hike
July 19, 2019 by Staff
The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour but that will change if Congress gets it way. They're considering a proposal that will more than double the minimum wage to $15 an hour. It may sound good to minimum wage earners but what about the employees who've worked their way up the ladder ...

July 18, 2019 by Staff

U.S. Census Question Workaround
July 17, 2019 by Staff
The U.S. Supreme Court said that the question of citizenship could not be included on the 2020 census. The Census counts the number of U.S. citizens and is used for determining Congressional districts, but the Court says that the Trump administration's justification "seems to have been contrived." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Trump only wants the citizenship information...
Ohio Judge Blocks Fetal Heartbeat Law
July 16, 2019 by Staff
A federal judge blocked Ohio's fetal heartbeat law from going into effect. The law said that a human life is present once a fetal heartbeat is detected and it banned abortions at that moment.

NEA Supports Abortion
July 15, 2019 by Staff
The National Education Association Representative Assembly recently voted to support a “fundamental right to abortion.” It's ironic that the NEA is taking a pro-abortion position because as more moms choose abortion there will be less children in the classroom, and this means there won't be a need for as many teachers. The NEA has avoided the abortion controversy in order...

Freedom and Morality
July 11, 2019 by Staff
Os Guiness said that true freedom is only possible within moral boundaries. He wrote in A Free People’s Suicide: "[freedom] rests on strong convictions about what is true and equally strong constraints against what is false.  A culture with no claims on its members or – curbs on their desires--would be a culture with no future. Freedom requires a firm refusal of what is...
Imposing Your Morality?
July 10, 2019 by Staff
One of the most difficult issues to talk about in public yet most necessary for our survival is that of moral boundaries. We live in a highly individualized society where we're averse to other people telling us how to live. Yet at a certain point, other people's choices begin to affect all of us, including our own freedom. It has been said that you can't legislate morality. Howev...
