Income Inequality

Many of my readers will be surprised by my stance on this subject. Until now, all of my views have been extremely liberal but I'll go a more conservative route by saying that there is nothing wrong with income inequality. The inequality of income is one of the reasons people come to this country in the first place. The promise of the American Dream: that you can start with nothing and through hard work and dedication rise from the ranks of the poor to provide a better future for yourself and your family.

The Environment

View image on Yahoo News websiteIn my home state of New Jersey, we are coming to the end of one of the snowiest winters in recent memory. Most of the United States was covered in snow including places ill prepared for it (read: Atlanta, GA.). The large amounts of snow throughout the US have prompted many to say, "I don't see global warming, I see snow." Did you know, however, that this was one of the warmest winters ever throughout the world? Sure, much of the US may have been under snow but the winter Olympics in Russia were interrupted by a heat wave that saw snowboarders and skiers taking trips to the beach to relax. This January was the 4th warmest we have ever recorded.
