  • “Snowden” Movie Recruitment

    The YAL chapter at Arizona State’s latest event was our “Snowden” movie night. I got inspired to do this this when I realized that the movie was to come out in the middle of September, and I immediately thought that this would be a wonderful way to recruit new members. By using money that I …

    I wrote earlier about how Obamacare works: In order to ensure “universal coverage,” the federal government is going to force individuals to buy insurance, whether or not it’s a financially sound decision for them.
