Your Views: Liberals pander to poor as they sock it to the rest of us

Michael Parker strikes again! The sock-it-to-the-rich liberals are pandering to the poor because there are so many of us, and we vote. Although many are totally unaware of what's going on, we vote, usually for the candidates who promise to give us the most money from the Federal treasury.

Making choices that help society

One cannot have the best of both worlds. For example, Daniel Webster had to sacrifice his stubborn views on slavery for the betterment of the American Union when he chose to advocate Henry Clay's Compromise of 1850.

Don't despair about risks; live your life

Today's choices affect my future because I may not be here tomorrow. Before I move along, I assure everyone that I am not suicidal and am not medicated with anti-depressants or any other drugs regarding the end of a person's life. I'm simply stating a fact. A person's anatomy is incredibly fragile, and day-to-day life has various risks. I prefer to risk it all.

One of my greatest achievements in life has been my tennis. Not only does it help relieve the stress of a busy high school student by serving balls at several miles per ...

Choices today can ensure a bright future

A person makes thousands of decisions a day. These decisions are based on the benefits and consequences of the future. Our decisions will affect our futures, whether we like it or not.

Many people make decisions without considering the consequences; these decisions affect many lives. Decisions are most crucial in living a healthy and beneficial life. The choices I make today affect my future jobs, my voice in the environment around me, and my health.
