Pizza Hut Fundraiser

Tuesday, November 28, the Right World View held its first off-campus fund- raiser. For it, we partnered with Pizza Hut in Greenwich, Connecticut. A deal was hashed out. For that particular day, from 11:00am- 8:00pm, Pizza Hut would give to the Right World View 20% of whatever revenue the newspaper bought to their restaurant.

To know what revenue was generated by the RWV, tickets were handed out by the staff that would be presented to the restaurant when the bill was being paid. They acknowledged that the patron wanted 20% of their bill to go to the Right World View.

Manhattanville students weren't the only ones who participated. Members from the community also did their part showing up and submitting tickets with their bills. These people were mostly family and friends of students that go to Manhattanville and some even seemed eager to participate.

Though the morning started out a bit on the slow side, things did pick up a little later in the day. The exact amount brought in to Pizza Hut by the Right World View won't be known for a little while. The amount that the newspaper will receive in funding will also not be known for a bit.

It can be said there was a strong turnout overall, with certain influxes at different points. We would like to thank all who participated and those that helped make this event possible. With your help, we can continue to put out more quality issues of the Right World View that we hope you enjoy reading.

Letter From the Editor (Right World View Vol. I, No. 4)

The country has spoken, and they have overwhelmingly said, "We want Democrats." Though in truth, it is not as simple as that. While the Democrats did sweep into power in both houses of Congress, it is not entirely clear whether it had more to do with what they were offering or more to do with the fact that they weren't Republicans.

Personally, I wanted the Republicans to lose the house to hopefully force them to return to their more Conservative base. I was also hoping they would keep the Senate in order to be able to put Conservative judges on the courts.

In many of the elections, if you didn't see the candidates’ political affiliation and just saw their platform, the Republicans and Democrats were almost indistinguishable. Conservative Democrats did exceptionally well.

Now we'll touch on some military matters. How many people have told you that the military dominance of the United States is quickly coming to a close? Let me alleviate some of your fears. First, lets talk conventionally.

The US Air Force has crafts in the sky (working models) that make just about anything any of the other countries have on the drawing board obsolete and not even worth building (or having). The US Navy is of such power that if you combined all other naval powers against it, it would still come out on top (decimated, but victorious nonetheless). Our army is strong enough to repel just about any force that it could come up against, if they could even get close enough to fight us.

In terms of non-conventional warfare, our silos are filled with enough missiles to destroy the world many times over. Finally, our stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons are sufficient to eradicate all life from the globe. But besides all that, I can see how are our dominance is being threatened.

Let me put this a different way: our military prowess and dominance is such that others have been forced to fundamentally change the concept of warfare and the way in which is its fought to even have a chance of competing with us. We may fall from our top position, just as all others that have achieved the pinnacle before us have, but it won't be anytime soon.

As always, if you would like to join the Right World View, our meetings are held every Monday in the second floor Founders classroom at 8:30pm.

Enjoy your upcoming break, and I hope to see you at one of our meetings either before you leave or after you return.

Thanksgiving Comes Early to Mville

Being a President that prides him self on interacting with the students, President Berman could be found in the Café on the Monday before Thanksgiving. There, he was carving and serving a Turkey to all who wanted to partake in the early festivities.

The Thanksgiving spirit reached Mville's Web administrators as a happy Thanksgiving message complete with a picture of a turkey.

The holiday itself is one of the few, uniquely American holidays. Harvest festivals abound all over the globe, but Thanksgiving is unique in its scope and in the way in which it is celebrated.

Though in recent times, it has been occasionally marred by controversy and protests over its true meaning (as was the case in some parts of the country), here at Mville it was more or less a quiet event, passing without major incident.

Let me also extend a belated happy Thanksgiving from all here at the Right World View.
