Any millennial who competed in youth sports will remember the awards ceremonies that followed every season. You may remember, if you were on a losing team, receiving a useless participation award that was not nearly as impressive as the two foot tall trophies given to the champions. If that is the case, you will remember wondering why you even got that little trophy at all. Receiving that insignificant award didn’t make you feel better. So, what was the point? Over the last thirty years, Americans have seen that we often create wider divisions in the name of perfect equality. Continue reading You Don’t Need a Participation Trophy: How a Nickelodeon Show Illustrated the Flaws of PC Authoritarianism
The second main stage Republican debate occurred last night, once more following the “kids’ round table” debate.

Continue reading What We Learned from Last Night’s Debate
I originally only meant to write about the first professional football game, but in the course of my research, I learned that the great Jim Thorpe was actually the first president of the NFL! (Eat your heart out Roger.) Seeing as this is the D(U.S.)tbin of History, I decided that it would be appropriate to start the series by telling an obscure story that the average NFL fan probably doesn’t know. Continue reading D(U.S.)tbin of History – FOOTBALL’S FOUNDING FATHER: JIM THORPE AND THE APFA

Why not right about a subject that I’ve always been interested in? The D(U.S.)tbin of History will be a subsection of … Continue reading Introducing “D(U.S.)tbin of History”
Very few women have accomplished more in our government system on their own merit than Sandra Day O’Connor. More than being the first female Supreme Court Justice O’Connor deserves to be on the ten dollar bill because she is an extremely accomplished person, who served with a firm allegiance to the United States Constitution, and whose judicial decisions still affect America today.
Donald Trump has as much potential as anyone else to be a good president. He has the ability to bring about change and “Make America Great Again”. Ronald Reagan was known as “the great communicator”. Trump could very well be remembered as “the great administrator”. Trump supporters have often pointed to ‘The Donald’s’ business experience as a main reason to elect him president. One of the top priorities of a business executive is to hire the right people to do the work for him. The president is the head of the executive branch and has a very similar job description. If Trump wants to be a successful president he will have to strengthen economic relations with foreign powers, make domestic reforms, and be the country’s CEO. Continue reading President Trump: America’s CEO
If elected he will be the first Indian-American president of the United States. However, it does not seem as though that matters at all to Governor Jindal. Although he is the son of Indian immigrants, the man who was born Piyush Jindal sports a southern accent deeper than George W. Bush’s and is tired of what he calls “hyphenated Americans”. He believes in one united people instead of self-segregating population that is constantly divided by race. Continue reading Why You Should Vote for Bobby Jindal

But, you know what? There are a few lessons, five to be exact, that one can learn from these kids who aren’t quite sure who they want to be yet. Read these five lessons carefully and please don’t complain about spoilers. You’ve been warned. Continue reading Five Lessons that You can Learn from Disney’s Descendants
Hamilton did nothing to warrant being removed from the ten dollar bill but will be anyway. Andrew Jackson, on the other hand, should be removed from his place of prominence on the twenty dollar bill because his policies of executive overreach blatantly disregarded the Constitution. Jackson forced others to bend to his will, participated in cronyism, and placed his own popularity above the common good. These are all reasons that the founder of the Democrat Party should not have the honor of appearing on the twenty dollar bill.
