The abounding sense of entitlement does not end with “meternity,” the idea of family leave for non-parents championed by author Meghann Foye. She’s now joined by Lindsay Putnam with New York Post, who writes that “Pet owners deserve family leave, too.” You would think that it was a parody; it’s not. “Having to go back to work days later was one of the […]

Think millennials are entitled? Read “Meternity”

38-year-old Meghann Foye was lucky enough to get Meternity published, and the biggest take away may be a selfish sense of entitlement while contributing nothing to the debate on paid family leave. Foye’s work of fiction is about a young woman who fakes a pregnancy to get maternity leave. But, it’s based on her decision to take her own kind of […]

It would take more than insults from ABC newswoman Barbara Walters to get President Reagan to abandon his “old friend,” a 1962 red Willys jeep. And now, that Jeep is headed to Washington, DC. The Historic Vehicle Association, in partnership with the Library of Congress, has deemed President Reagan’s Jeep an important artifact of American […]

In an effort to change Indiana law, Stoner has proposed legislation that […]

In the United States of America, the “libertarian moment” — if it ever existed — was squelched by the populism, nationalism, and socialism of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. However, in Latin America, it lives on. “Latin Americans have grown tired of years of populism and socialism and have begun to demand changes in their […]

The United States has an opportunity to open Cuba to freedom and a democratic political system, but President Obama’s recent trip has unfortunately obscured the brutality of the communist regime. That Obama realized the futility of the 56-year-old embargo on Cuba is laudable. For too long, American policy toward Cuba has kept it isolated from […]

The Phoenix Suns are not having the best season. And, while he did take some blame, Suns owner Robert Starver also put it on the “millennial culture.” So, can the same be said for the Golden Gate Warriors’ loss on Sunday? Owner Steve Kerr thinks so, sort of. As Fox Sports reported, Kerr “blames loss to Lakers on […]

A Singles in America survey from Match.com last month studied politics and dating. More recently, the teen polling app Wishbone did their own survey on dating, which also factors in politics.
