What to Do When You Hate Your President (Or Other Elected Official)

in Features by

I have a confession to make. I dressed as Donald Trump for Halloween and I am actually really quite ashamed about this now. This whole “Trump for President” thing just seemed like such a joke, or at least a calculated House Of Cards-esque plot by the Clintons in order to ensure a landslide Hillary victory. Every step The Donald took closer and closer to the White House we all kept saying “Surely, this will be when the madness stops” but it didn’t. I will also confess to being a very cynical and negative person, yet for some reason, I still have faith in people and faith that in the end, “the good guy” wins (I blame wrestling and comic books…).…

Where do I begin? First off, I am not a US citizen. I am a proud Canadian. But like all Canadians, we are gravely affected by what transpires with our neighbours to the south. And as such, I want to share my feelings and opinions on the recent Election and am writing this article from the viewpoint of a global citizen. To say that I am so wrought with tremendous emotion in response to the outcome of the November 8th presidential election would be an understatement. I am truly in shock over the results of Tuesday’s election. In a world where we are finally making so many strides in social and human rights issues it seemed unfathomable that the United…

When times are tough, you do without. I have faced many financial constraints in my lifetime. I have banked over 15 years in retail experience, half of that while holding two Degrees. I have wrangled my way out of my student debt. I have suffered through maternity leave with a biweekly $75 deposited into my bank. So I know what it’s like to be working hard and doing without. Heck even now, I am working three jobs, ignoring having more children and have been snipping portions of my cheque in preparation for Christmas. When I say I’m preparing for the holiday season, I am not talking massive xbox and Iphone purchases, I need money to travel to Ontario for my…

News Round Up: Muskrat Falls

In response to the Muskrat Falls protest and the methylmercury levels, St. John’s East MP Nick Whalen tweeted “That is ridiculous. Just measure MeHg levels, eat less fish while MeHg levels are too high, and compensate.” Wait a second, did a white rich guy just tell a community of people how to face a problem? Did he suggest something that is not a solution and would be considered ridiculous if this was his home? Did a white guy just stand up in a position of power and completely dismiss a very serious situation that is affecting a great portion of his province? No WAY. Man, I don’t remember the last time a white guy ignored the problems of others while…

Social media has become a huge part of our lives. What started with dialing into your 56K modem to launch online message boards and ICQ in our spare time has evolved into an intimate extension of our real world persona. People use their various social media accounts to share with the world their range of interests and activities, creating an online presence that can attract hundreds, thousands, and even millions of followers who tune into your daily exploits. While Facebook and Twitter have had their heyday, Instagram seems to be the platform at the forefront for people who either want to showcase their budding photography, myself included, or who want to upload daily selfies of themselves. And with features like…
