With the semester coming to an end, the main things on most students’ minds are their final grades.

Can someone please tell me why society has grown to be so greedy? Why in the hell are we rushing Christmas earlier and earlier every year and so concerned with buying presents?

On Friday, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down rulings that would have legalized same-sex marriage in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. This, especially given the fact that it is the first serious defeat the movement has seen in several years, understandably upsets proponents of same-sex marriage. The Supreme Court’s struck down DOMA, California’s ban on same-sex marriage in 2013 and a series of rulings from the 4th, 7th, 9th and 10th Circuit Courts that similarly legalized same-sex marriage in states under those circuits’ jurisdiction. However, the 6th Circuit’s striking down of same-sex marriage provisions may not, ultimately, be a bad thing. In fact, while it may feel like a major step back, it could very well be two or three steps forward.

Patriotism is a very important aspect of daily life for many people no matter what country they are from. An individual’s patriotism shows their pride and loyalty for his or her nation. It shows an undying love for the nation that they represent.
