U.S. and Cuba must forge relationship

For the past 50 years our country has all but ignored Cuba's existence. We've placed a trade embargo on the island nation, only harming our own farmers and other exporters, and we've gone as far to place travel restrictions on the country, punishing Cuban-Americans and hindering our travel industry.

UF needs grade redistribution system

While I am happy to see that our country is moving in a more progressive direction, I am sad that I cannot say the same about the University of Florida. Our good president Barack "The Messiah" Obama is steering the nation toward a much fairer, redistributive taxation and social program system which will take from the greedy rich bastards to provide for those who have fallen on harder times. Every single rich person in America, after all, "earned" his or her fortune by denying opportunities to the poor.

SG should give Gators for a Sustainable Campus funding

Almost everyone recognizes the importance of sustainability. Americans are beginning to prioritize environmental protection, create a renewable power economy and conserve energy. President Barack Obama's stimulus package, bills in the state legislature, and UF's sustainability programs have all made sustainability a priority to prevent energy waste and avert climate change.
