The Beginning of the End

As an aspiring journalist, I take issues regarding the First Amendment very seriously.

I understand the importance of the preservation of our right to free speech, and the power it can give to an individual and a nation.

The ability to protest and petition our government is not only vital in maintaining a democracy that is honest and accountable, it is physically promised to us in our Constitution’s First Amendment.

No Free Speech

Being Muslim on Campus

Muslims on campus; what do you do when you see one? Do you avoid eye conact? Sneer at them? Make an off-handed comment to a friend? Think about how they feel perhaps? With the recent passing of the anniversary of 9/11, the racial profiling of Muslims on campus, and in general, has increased.

9/11 The Day America Stood Still

Is the Middle College Program fair?

Middle College at the Moreno Valley College was started in 1999 as a partnership between Riverside Community College's Moreno Valley Campus in participation with Moreno Valley Unified School District, and Val Verde Unified School District. The program was designed to allow high school aged students to get collegiate classes that were to be credited to their high school diploma and consecutively their associate’s degree. Basically it gave them a head start on a college education while still in high school.

Snitches Get Stitches

If you saw someone get killed right in front of you and you knew exactly who did it, would you share that information with the police or keep it a secret for the rest of your life?

Any sensible human being would obviously want to tell investigators who the murderer is, but you will be surprised by the lack of cooperation police officers receive from eye witnesses. The reason?

“Stop snitchin’, stop lyin’.”

A Costly Dream

      About a month ago, California governor Jerry Brown passed a bill that grants illegal immigrants access to privately funded scholarships to attend the state's public colleges and universities. There are a lot of people who support the passing of this bill because it is believed to introduce fair opportunities for all people in America. However, is it fair to American citizens that they will now have to compete with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants for financial resources that are already growing scarce at a time like this in our nation? I say no.

Parking Changes the Sequel

    In the aftermath of the closing of parking lot C at Moreno Valley College to make way for a Dental Education Center, students are left having to park in the vacant dirt field behind the Parkside complex. Now ask yourselves! Is that fair?

A Hardcore Culture all their own

Some Parents Deserve a Spanking

Here's an image for you: grown men and women tearing down caution tape, pushing small children out of the way, and rushing for plastic eggs filled with candy.

The Spring Egg Hunt at Moreno Valley College was meant to be a fun event for children in the community. The games, parking, and egg hunt were free of charge, but some parents expected more.

Do Celebrities Get Away with Anything?

In the United States of America, most of us are under the impression that all people are created equal. Apparently, "created equal" means we all have rights granted to us through birth. After further inspection, one could come to acknowledge that this is not the case.

Refusing to Settle

All of a sudden, I look around and there isn't a single facebook status that doesn't include an engagement, wedding, or a new baby.
