Owning your image
By: Mary Hunton

Let’s consider a scenario. You are a photographer. You own your camera, all of your camera equipment, as well as the studio you take pictures in, the computer you utilize to edit and refine said pictures, and the printer and paper that play the role of producing those pictures for your portfolio, projects, and pleasure.

Campus Discussion – Capital Punishment
By: Travis Hagen

For our second Campus Discussion we will be discussing capital punishment. Is it ever okay to kill a human being? Should taxes be used to put people to death, even though many of those taxed are morally opposed to such actions? We’re going to make an effort to keep this one on topic, focused, and [...]

Campus Discussion – Jack Bauer
By: Travis Hagen

During our first ever Campus Discussion we will be discussing Jack Bauer.

The Road to…Serfdom?
By: Barry Belmont

A bill (H.R. 857) has been introduced that would make it basically illegal to grow your own food on your own land without the government’s permission. When I first heard about this I was taken aback and I thought all the blogs and the writer’s and the critics were merely engaging in a bit of [...]

And it Will Change…
By: Barry Belmont

Despite being able to own a gun as an individual, you (if you are a doctor) are not allowed to own/dispense your own opinion, in fact, a court has decided for you. Disingeniously, the South Dakota Attorney General Larry Long claimed, “The bottom line is if the state Legislature orders a professional to tell the [...]
