Government Isn’t Necessary For Contraception Access

In an opinion published by National Geographic, Melinda Gates shared her view on the importance of providing women with contraceptives, and information about her her global partnership, Family Planning 2020, which has pledged to get 120 million women access to contraceptives by the year 2020. Gates’s plan is a truly selfless, philanthropic endeavor which serves no purpose other than to provide needy women with access to contraceptives to improve their lives. This is what plans about access to contraceptives should look like. Private individuals advocating for a cause they believe in, not taxation and government programs.

Where Were These Refugee Sympathizers When Obama Was Bombing Their Countries?

Protests at nearly every major airport have erupted in the last several days in response to President Trump’s immigration ban on seven Muslim majority countries. Protestors call the 90 day suspension of travel from individuals from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, and Libya a human rights violation that does not represent American values.

I only have one question for these protestors; Why weren’t you protesting when President Obama was bombing these nations, the reason why their residents are refugees in the first place?

Dear American Women: You are not Oppressed

This past weekend, in the wake of Trump’s inauguration, around half of a million people, mostly women, marched on the capital to protest Trump’s presidency as well as stand up for Women’s rights.

Unfortunately, none of the sources perpetuating this lie have any evidence whatsoever to substantiate this claim.

Why Socialism Couldn’t Work Even If Everyone Was On Board

We’ve all been there. It is by far the most common criticism levied against socialism: without incentive, who would do the hard jobs? Who would work at all? After all, if the reward is the same, why should someone choose to work sanitation instead of being a painter, or be a farmer instead of a florist?

However this argument does little against many people including, notably, actual socialists. So let’s go ahead and assume, for the fun of it, that everybody goes on board with socialism. Meaning: people work jobs prescribed to them regardless of thought of personal gain, and people continue to innovate without hope of compensation.
