Media bias is becoming a major issue in the United States today. Most media outlets have become corrupt by politics. The media should be completely unbiased and factual, allowing the citizens of our great country to form their own opinions. I understand and completely respect the First Amendment, but when the media is pushing their opinions so hard, it is impossible not to see things from their point of view.
Being a young adult, I know how impressionable America’s youth is. When we have this much fake news, it makes it really hard to determine what is real and what isn’t. As America’s future voters, we need to be presented with the truth by reporters who will keep their own opinions out of their reports and articles. I think this change is possible, but we as a nation need to demand it.
More Gun Control Is Not The Answer
As an American college student I am a member of the most diverse and technologically advanced generation in the history of the world, and that is pretty cool. As a conservative millennial I feel my voice is often not heard.
I believe screaming for more “gun control” is not the answer. I want politicians on both sides of the aisle to stand up and admit the government failed on all levels during the Parkland shooting.
I am thankful U.S. Rep. Rod Blum had the strength to admit the federal and local governments failed. There was no oversight, and that needs to be addressed. I understand the need and want to feel safe at my school, but the cyclical narrative of disarming innocent civilians is not the answer. It is not only unconstitutional, but it won’t solve the problem. Bad guys who want to do harm will find a way to make it happen. It is intellectually dishonest to attack the weapon and not the criminal.
I have made the conscious decision to not walk out of school to make my voice heard, but to walk up to students who are having a hard time and be a positive impact.
It is time we enforce laws already on the books and increase public safety by updating state compliance when it comes to background checks.
Place Term Limits On Legislative Branch
The founding fathers did not intend for our elected officials to make careers out of public office. We have term limits for our President and for good reason; we should apply those same principles to the Legislative Branch. There are politicians that have been in office longer than Ive been alive.
Congressman Rod Blum established the first ever Term Limits Caucus in Congress and the support from other members to bring a vote to the floor to term limit themselves is disgracefully unpopular. If members aren’t willing to stand up next to Congressman Blum and put an end to Congressional jobs for life, we ought to vote them out.
ICE Sweeps 32 For Immigration Violations At Concrete Company Near Iowa City
In a not so total surprise ICE raided a concrete business in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, Southeast of Iowa City, Iowa. This was for an investigation in which they swiped 32 illegal immigrants for immigration violations.
KTVO Reports – Law enforcement, including agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, swarmed a Heartland business Wednesday morning.
The site of the activity was the Midwest Precast Concrete facility on Washington Street in Mt. Pleasant.
Law enforcement on scene said that ICE agents were serving a federal warrant at the location. They declined to make any further comment, but referred KTVO to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. That office has declined to comment on this case.
A representative with Midwest Precast Concrete also declined to comment on Wednesday’s incident.
