Irony and Piloting America

By: Christopher Neely It has been a week since the end of the 2016 presidential campaign and Donald Trump’s victory. During that time social media has been ablaze with people celebrating the victory and others lashing out against the result.

OMG! GMO!

Writer -Mary L. Gordon The agricultural biotechnology giant Monsanto and The Food and Drug Administration have repeatedly claimed, since 1996, that the Genetically Modified Organisms they introduced into the American food supply are perfectly safe for human consumption.

Flicking the Skittle with El McCarthy: “My Super Exciting Explanatory Article #IAMFSCJ”

It occurred to me after writing last week’s very exciting article that a lot of the general public probably isn’t familiar with the Super Cool Trans Kids™ and their lingo.

“F” is For Finals

“When it comes to voting in August, you have options”

Writer –  BEN DOUTHETT We all know there’s a kinda-sorta-major election happening on November 8. But many people only follow politics casually, and they might not realize there’s a slightly-less-but-still-important election that is scheduled for August 30.
