The First Presidential Debate: Things That Haven't Changed

There were few surprises.

Trump's temperament still needs work.

America is still waiting for Trump to act "presidential." That will require him to stop shouting in monotone and to speak in full, complete sentences. And explain is policies in detail, release his tax returns and stop being racist.

Hillary was in total control, as usual.

It was great to see her steer the conversation back to answer the original question (and demand the clock is restarted after Trump interrupts her for a long period during her time to speak.) Despite having a bout of walking pneumonia not too long ago, it seems she recovered well and was extremely prepared for this spectacle, er, debate.

Hillary didn't have much to say about her emails.

I think, at this point, we all know she made mistake. She even said so during the debate. It's the one issue that she can't really defend and is now, basically just like, "Alright, fine, you've got me on this one. That's like, 1 point for Trump and a zillion for me. I'll live."

Trump said the words "China" and "Mexico" a lot.

He knows that his supporters love it when he takes a dump on China and Mexico, so he has to do that every time he gets on stage, no matter what situation he's in. He then proceeds to talk about jobs as if they're some mysterious, elusive and endangered species that is threatened by tax increases on the wealthy and vulnerable, undocumented immigrants who come time America to work hard (brutally so) and possibly have a better life. The jobs also don't like economic policy designed to explicitly to benefit the middle class.

Trump still thinks one million dollars is a small loan.

I guess he thought this debate was an appropriate time to stand by that sentiment.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
