Elizabeth Warren May Be Our New Vice President
Start writing a post

On Wednesday, April 15, Senator Elizabeth Warren publicly endorsed Former Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States. Biden pledged over a month ago to "pick a woman to be my vice president". With much speculation over who is being considered, Warren was asked directly by Rachel Maddow on MSNBC if she would accept the position if asked. Just a second had passed when Warren affirmed a confident "yes" to the notion.

Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden have had a complex history dating back much farther than the 2020 Democratic Presidential race. Since 1998, they have clashed -- particularly on a series of bankruptcy reform bills. See, Warren has spent her career fighting for American families and holding big banks accountable. From proposing and establishing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in 2010 to sponsoring the Veterans Care Financial Protection Act of 2017, the Senator from Massachusetts has accomplished substantial work in the financial sector well before entering Congress. That being said, the two politicians have crossed paths on several occasions. (Biden was even there when she was sworn into the United States Senate.)

Moreover, Warren proved her resilience time and time again throughout the 2020 Democratic Presidential race. Many people were -- and still are -- moved by her fighting words. Her campaign gained extensive support as she battled fellow candidates that had questionable motives... *cough* *cough* Michael Bloomberg. So for that, I commend Warren and the progressive ideas she has brought to the conversation, like her Two-Cent and Corruption plans!

All in all, Elizabeth Warren has created a platform on progressive ideals that appeal to various minded people. With her unifying rhetoric, she would make quite an exceptional running mate. Not only has she proven her abilities to take on this sort of position, but she also appeals to voters on-the-line with Joe Biden's candidacy. Furthermore, Biden has already endorsed Warren's bankruptcy plan that includes closing loopholes that allow the wealthy creditors to abuse the system at the expense of everyone else and helping address shameful racial and gender disparities that plague the bankruptcy system entirely. The possibility of the Senator being appointed as VP has brought relief to many as the progressive movement strives on. As Senator Warren said best, "We both want the same thing. We want this country to work, and we want it to work for everyone." At the end of the day, unification is what will truly benefit us all.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
