Save the Sheridan Expressway!

miannielli

New York City Mayor Andrew Coumo wants to remove one of New York City's most iconic expressways, The Sheridan Expressway (Interstate 895) in the Bronx, NY. If the governor moves forward with his plan, then this will only cause more and more traffic in the Bronx and even New York City, NY! I am from Long Island State, NY and I am highly against this plan because I am tired of having to go through the congested New York City streets to get to either The Bronx, Westchester, Connecticut, Upstate NY,...

Work Unions are good

I personally believe work unions are good, as they protect employees from being taken advantage of, by companies, managers and bosses. Unions do conflict with capitalistic views but I believe without unions we would not be in the position we are now in the work force. Without unions, we would end up with rich owners and slave workers who would have no rights and would be forced to work for meager wages just to survive while being exploited by their employers. I am all for unions, although I r...

Should the words "under god" be in the pledge of allegiance?

Strebicux

I don't think it should stay because that puts down every religion that is not monotheistic, and America is a free country. Some people say that if it is removed, that will offend all monotheistic people, and even though 80% of our country is Christian, that is no reason to offend everyone else. If you sent your kids to school saying something besides that, that wasnt part of your religion, would you be okay with it? Like one nation under Allah? Under Jesus? Under zeus? It honestly should never...

Capitalism as an economic system functions better than Socialism.

Do your best to maintain focus on the logical reasoning for how each system functions. I know it will be tempting to talk about unfairness and unjust societies oppressing the working class and such but we are not here to debate your feelings about how people are treated. If you want to take a logical position of the negative externalities created by a working or oppressed class that is acceptable, I have no interest in hearing about evil corporations or the ruthless people of the national social...
