Graduates are suffering not just financially, but physically as well.

Incredibles 2: Making superheroes great again

Jordan J. Ballor – I saw Incredibles 2 over the Father’s Day weekend, and just like its predecessor, there’s a lot to ponder beneath the surface of this animated film. In the real world we’ve had to wait 14 years, but the sequel picks up basically where the original left off. As the Rev. Jerry Zandstra wrote of the original, “litigiousness and mediocrity are some of the biggest obstacles in our culture. The propensity to settle every dispute by legal action undermines values, such as trust and forgiveness, that are essential to the...

Bush, Obama ‘All Separated Families’ at Border

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen corrected the establishment media’s false narrative that President Donald Trump is the first administration that has separated border-crossing adults from the children they brought to the southern border.

Flint school rises above challenges

You can find similar scenes in a handful of tony Metro Detroit enclaves, but it’s an unexpected sight in Flint....

An issue of discomfort for South Korea

The comfort women issue took the world by storm when in 1992 a Japanese historian by the name of Yoshimi Yoshiaki announced that he had secured documents alleging a Japanese led wartime brothel chain. In the wake of this knowledge, the nation of Japan was accused of capturing women en mass and using them for the purposes of sex. When the Japanese were done with them, they discarded the women like trash by massacring them with no regard. Although man women suffered the ones who suffered more were the women of Korea. Officials of Japan’s...
