All Politics is Local

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 11/18/2013 Last week, Richardson High School students overwhelmingly rejected a district approved guest speaker, the “bestselling author” of Christian inspired books on dating, Justin Lookadoo. Lookadoo caused an uproar among students which has now gained international attention. As a Richardson district AP Government and Macroeconomics teacher in Berkner High School’s STEM [...]

Debt, Denial, and Disgust

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 10/20/2013 Many of us living in the two political party paradigm smiled as they read last week’s debt ceiling headlines: A bipartisan deal had been reached and furloughed federal workers may return to work. Federal parks are open and White House tours will resume. Victory came in the 11th hour inspiring [...]

Madam Feinstein, I’m slightly concerned for your mental health.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/18/2013 Dear Dianne Feinstein, Recently, a former AP Economics teacher wrote a letter to the massive state surveillance system and since I know you introduced the last internet censorship bill, PIPA, voted to extend the Patriot Act, and introduced legislation to ban semi-automatic rifles or “assault weapons” as you masters of [...]

My Take on the Presidential Debate: Do you want some soma with your police state?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 10/7/2012 While I was beyond unenthusiastic about Wednesday night’s debate, I am very impressed with my government students. The overwhelming majority of them watched the first presidential debate, took notes on what they saw, and had lots to say in class Thursday. I am shocked that many students watched more than [...]

Are you Fast and Furious yet?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 9/9/2012 I drew this cartoon during the summer at an AP Summer Institute after learning that the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, might be held in contempt of Congress for his participation in the Fast and Furious debacle. During my AP Government professional development, I decided to write a little rap [...]

What to do if you want peace on earth

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/31/2012 Nothing would make me happier than to see humanity set free. However, liberty is unlikely to reign with our current 1984 style government trampling on our rights everyday. I recently read an article discussing five ways individuals can begin to divorce themselves of the  status quo. My favorite item on [...]

Vote for a face!

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/20/2012. Sadly, our choices for president this year are grim. Although many of us vote with the idea of choosing the lesser of two evils, the lack of differences between Obama and Romney will force the American people to cast mostly superficial votes this November. Both candidates support bailouts, adore the [...]

Creativity is the best solution- not gun control

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/13/2012 “Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality overcomes everything.”- George Lois   Perhaps it is an over-saturation of media coverage, but it does seem like we have witnessed an excessive amount of gun violence this year. The Trayvon mess, the crazy Batman [...]

Mainstream music fails again

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/7/2012 It’s official. I must be an old fart because I am increasingly mortified by the mainstream music ‘kids these days’ listen to. I don’t think I’m prudish, but I can’t help but be grossed out by that Rihanna/Chris Brown song “Cake.” We all remember the bruised Rihanna pictures that surfaced [...]

Seeing past the lies

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/5/2012 “America is a Nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.” -George W. Bush
