  • Why a tweet sent an elementary school principal on administrative leave
    Should a principal lose his job for tweeting a photo of his family shooting guns? The Missouri principal sent the photos as a reply to a Parkland shooting survivor’s David Hogg’s call for research into why mass shootings happen.

  • Why accepting “oppo” is an emergency waiting to happen
    President Donald Trump caused ginormous uproar after telling ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos he would happily take info from foreign entities if the opportunity arose. Trump also said he wouldn’t let the FBI know about these situations. Opposition research, or what Trump called “oppo,” is information about another political party or candidate. The danger comes when we start accepting this research from foreign organizations. Has Trump just sent an open invitation to foreign governments saying America welcome to interference?
