Trump For Dummies

General statements from the Republican Party's very own Donald Trump.

Trump For Dummies

Millionaire Donald Trump surprised everyone when he decided to run for president back in June 2015. Unfortunately, he's known for filing for corporate bankruptcy a whopping four times and his inappropriate comments over the course of his professional life. Donald will tell you it has not been easy for him, he started out in Brooklyn and only received a rather small loan of $1 million from his father. Poor guy. He must have it hard. However, being a young person who is not wrapped up into politics, Mr. Trump has made his views known to the general public as a whole. Even if you don't know a lot about politics, we all know of his desire to build his wall (Mexico will pay).

1. When it comes to immigration, Mr. Trump is certainly the most radical in the field.

He famously accused Mexico of "engaging in a deliberate campaign" to send rapists and other criminals across the border.

2. As with his “make Mexico pay for the wall” plan, he’s argued that America should confront alleged currency manipulation by China by somehow charging them a tax.

3. He wants to eliminate corporate taxes entirely, end the estate tax, reduce capital gains taxes, and slash individual tax rates across the board.

So, basically, that's a 15 percent tax cut for those making over $1 million and a one percent tax cut for those making $30,000, or less. Hmm, now that doesn't seem fair does it.

4. He wants to create a universal health care eliminating the Affordable Healthcare Act.

Well, that seems pretty reasonable. A+ for Mr. Donald Trump because it separates him from the rest of the GOP candidates.

5.Trump supports recent Congressional efforts to ban abortion and recently called on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood in a recent interview.

Who needs women's healthcare, right?

6. According to him, women are essentially aesthetically pleasing objects.

Yes! Let's make this guy President if he doesn't even believe in my self-worth!

7. He tweeted back in 2013 that sexual assault in the military is totally expected if you put men and women together.

So, should we get on board with "making America great, again" with Mr. Trump as our leader? That is ultimately up to you to decide.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
