Dear Gov. Snyder: Syrian Refugees Are Welcome In My Home

Michael Moore | November 20, 2015 | Politics
I'm disappointed in you, Governor Snyder, for your heartless and un-Christian actions, and for joining in with at least 25 other governors who've decided to block legal Syrian refugees from coming into their states. What you've done is anti-American. This is not who we are supposed to be.

I Underwent Cosmetic Surgery for My Body Dysmorphia... And I Wish I Hadn't

Reid Ewing | November 20, 2015 | Healthy Living

'No Really... What Are You?'

The Establishment | November 12, 2015 | Women
I can almost feel my mother's heart break when I'm asked about my family history. I'm proud of my Filipino heritage, and proud to be an American, but when I think of the cost and loss my mother suffered, my pride is twinged with betrayal.

Dale Hansen | November 9, 2015 | Politics
Christian persecution has become a new religion for many. These people take it on faith that a war on Christianity is being waged in America. The reality is, the only war being waged right now is one to define the religious freedoms afforded to Americans by the Constitution.
