Electoral College, Part III

By the end of this week Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. The discussion has, appropriately, moved away from the results of the election to how the country will be run under President Trump. As was to be expected, the discussion around the Electoral College has dissipated to the point of being nearly forgotten. I believe this is a terrible mistake. As the old saying goes, and I’m paraphrasing and putting my own spin on the sentiment, those who forget history are bound to repeat it.

Electoral College, Part II

Not long after the Presidential election on November 8, 2016, there was much discussion in the news and on social media about the Electoral College. I have been an advocate to abolish the Electoral College long before this election and continue to support that opinion. However, just like with most stories in this fast-paced world, something that is a hot topic one day is completely forgotten about the next. So, in this, Part 2 of this series on the Electoral College, I wanted to share some information and some interaction I had to keep this important issue on top of your mind.

Beer Snob: Affordable Care Act Edition

I'm not overly informed when it comes to the current political climate so don't take anything in this blog as support or opposition to any political ideology. I'm not a republican. I'm not a democrat. I don't even vote for the President of the United States (it is an issue I have with the Electoral College; I do vote in local and state-wide elections; and it is probably something I'll address in a later blog). The purpose of this blog is to share one of the lesser publicized sections of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), specifically Section 4205 - Nutrition Labeling of Standard Menu Items at Chain Restaurants.
