War – What is it Good For?

International peace day was celebrated this past week with a bang. Now the question is, does war bring peace? Should we send ground troops to fight the ever-growing ISIS force in the Middle East? Is Obama using the correct approach according to his foreign policy?  Of Obama’s approach to ISIS one Democrat, Jennifer Shelton-Armstrong from Mission Viejo California said, “He is ambivalent, and I think it shows. There is no clear plan.”

What is the solution to ISIS? Should we declare war to protect United States citizens? Come to pizza and politics this Wednesday September 24 to state your opinion.

Domestic Violence Blog Picture

There are generally six types of abuse that exist in a violent relationship, physical, emotional, verbal, economic, mental and sexual abuse. Currently domestic abuse is a hot topic that has again reached national attention due to the Ray Rice issue. A video was released that showed the Ravens football player hitting his girlfriend in the elevator of a casino and was later suspended indefinitely from the NFL.
This week for pizza and politics we are interested in the consequences that the media plays on focusing and/or glamorizing current issues and what are individual opinions to the issues of domestic violence. This matter is not only of national concern but is also affecting our State and Cedar City, this was shown by various facts: Rape is the only category of violent crime in Utah which has a rate that exceeds the nation’s average. (Rape in Utah. 2005) In fact, since 1991, Utah’s reported rape rate has consistently been higher than the national rate. In 2003, Utah’s rape rate was 18.1% higher than the national rate.
Please come to express your opinion, and learn about the issue of domestic violence in our State and City.
