It’s that time of year again: Christmas time! Er, Kwanzaa time! No, Hanukkah time! No, no, all of those are offensive. So, Happy Holidays!

I am a student-athlete at Eastern Michigan University and in response to the Dec. 6 article “Athletic funds could be used for academics” in The Eastern Echo, more specifically the statement that “it’s time the board takes a timeout from the unfettered, lavish spending on the Athletic Department.”
Women in the military: I see nothing wrong with this.
Was it the political miscalculation made by Michigan’s labor movement to forward an amendment to the state’s Constitution that ultimately failed?
American Culture has been devastated. As of now, the ever-popular Hostess Twinkie is on its deathbed. A generation of Americans will grow up without having so much as a bite of a Twinkie. The Hostess business is closing, and taking an iconic piece of American culture with it.

While it may sound like something ripped straight from The Onion, Michigan Republican lawmakers really have proposed an amendment to the state tax code that would allow pregnant women to claim a fetus over 12 weeks old as a dependent and receive an estimated $160 tax break.
It’s time we re-examine Eastern Michigan University’s football program. Again. In a Dec. 3 front-page column, The Eastern Echo sports editor called for the firing of head coach Ron English.

There are many horrific events going on in the world right now. Israel and Hamas were recently firing at each other, an earthquake tore apart Guatemala and citizens in 23 European countries went on strike over a financial crisis; all important events that many people have not heard about. College students should be more mindful of the world around them.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit struck down Michigan’s ban on Affirmative Action Nov. 15. The ban, known as the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, was added to our State Constitution in 2006 after being approved by 58 percent of the electorate.
Now that the presidential election has finally ended, we can begin our next conversation: the 2016 presidential election. Our creativity of topics aside, the search for presidential candidates has already begun. Most interesting to me is the reemergence of an old name: Hillary Clinton.
A University of Tampa sociology professor recently published a report in which he estimated that the United States is losing $71 billion per year because of its automatic tax exemptions for religious institutions.
I have a confession to make. While many Americans look forward to Black Friday shopping deals, I experience a moment of schadenfreud reading about people getting trampled and violent frenzies that break out.
