The Women’s March, 2017: What was it, actually, and will it remain a broad catch-all of issues going forward with more marches to come? Backed by George Soros, and with Madonna at the mic, it appeared vulgar and militant, with the idea of “women” at the center of it all. Soros spent millions to 50 different groups who rallied their women to put on pink winter caps symbolizing a vagina. What was your reaction to the Women’s March? Was it an effective instrument for change? Why? Why not?
Would you say that all cultures and religions are equal in America? We have come to accept multiculturalism and even extol and promote it, but are some heritages (i.e. English or Italian) and some religions (Jewish or Christian) more favored? Is there a background and a set of beliefs more favored than another, in spite of “pluribus unum” (out of many, one), does multiculturalism really lead to unity? Or will there always be divisions, rank, status, and favoritism in America? Discuss.
Interview: Prof. Brooks Simpson Topic: The ins and outs of whether Trump can employ his family members to run his business. Lawyers disagree on this and have advised him in different ways.
John Stossel, recently retired from his Libertarian News Show on Fox News, released a list of five agencies to dump in Trump’s first week. They are the Departments of Commerce, Labor, Small Business Administration, Education, and Energy. What would be one of the Departments you’d dump in the first five days of Trump’s Presidency and why would you get rid of it?
