Three years after the Wall Street collapse initiated deep recession, the world once again stands on the precipice of an economic abyss, demonstrating that the current crisis represents not merely a conjunctural downturn in the markets, but a systemic breakdown of the capitalist system.
Answer this question: If you had to pay for college out-of-pocket as you go, would you still be attending right now?
The Republican Party could easily describe the macroeconomic policies of the Democratic Party as ‘tax and spend,’ but then, not much can be said for their approach or stewardship over the U.S. economy. I’ve often imagined a political cartoon with a house on fire, and next to it is a caricature of Speaker of the House John
Boehner (R-OH), dressed as fireman, yelling, “Throw some tax cuts at it.”
This week, the Center for the Study of Equality and Human Rights ended its “Let’s Make It Better Now” video contest, aimed at reducing bullying for LGBT youth. I highly encourage you to check out the entries into the contest on Youtube. Many of them are heartfelt and inspiring; certainly, they are the best representations of EMU’s accepting spirit.
A Huffington Post article reported, “The Senate on Thursday blocked a second attempt to spare U.S. citizens from potential indefinite military detentions and was set to vote on a third effort to do the same later in the day.”
In May, I used these column inches to offer my take on the Republican presidential primary. I dismissed all but four GOP hopefuls as having no chance at the nomination. The four men I thought had a path to victory were Mitch Daniels, Jon Huntsman, Mitt Romney, and Tim Pawlenty.
Since it was announced student organization Black Leaders Aspiring to Critical Knowledge asked Kwame Kilpatrick, former mayor of Detroit, to speak in the Student Center ballroom, emotions have flared up. Several students protested his appearance, others defended the right to speak and this issue received heightened exposure.
I just finished an enjoyable Thanksgiving with my homeless and social work friends at the Vineyard Church Thanksgiving celebration. I really enjoyed touching base with my friends from Camp Take Notice, Groundcover News vendors, the church staff from Vineyard Church’s Homeless Ministry and various other like-minded social workers. It was very much like a family reunion.
I spent some time over the break reviewing my work as a columnist for The Eastern Echo, which has been decent, but my arguments have not always been as persuasive as desired. I also realized I’ve often used my space in the publication to fire attacks on the Republican Party from the opposite side of the political spectrum.
“Cause now I’m in the Ashton/ I went from havin’ my city locked up to gettin’ treated like Kwame Kilpatrick.”
Tomorrow at 7 p.m., former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will speak in the Eastern Michigan University Student Center Ballroom at an event hosted by the student organization Black Leaders Aspiring for Critical Knowledge. As I’m sure you can imagine, this impeding talk about “second chances” has caused quite a stir on campus.
It would not be a leap of the imagination to say Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is being snubbed, both by the GOP and news media.
Annarbor.com has an article that might invoke nerd rage if you’re studying the hard sciences. In my boss’ case the rage was more economic in nature. Either way, you have been warned.
ESPN has been a bit boring of late, as it has continued to broadcast heavily on the Penn State Scandal. NPR of November 17, 2011 reported Jerry Sandusky, former defensive coordinator for the Nittany Lions and head of The Second Mile – a children’s charity foundation for foster children – is accused of multiple accounts of sex crimes against young boys.
While the holiday season might fill some of us with memories of warm cocoa, fireplaces and family members yelling at each other, we can all agree the most important part of this time of year is Black Friday. On the day after Thanksgiving, just as the sun rises over Bermuda, Americans go shopping.
I still am amused with Republican presidential candidate Hermain Cain. But that amusement is now tinged with a sense of annoyance. I’m annoyed that while I had dismissed Cain as a serious contender for the presidency after he admitted he didn’t know who the leader of “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan,” the rest of the Republican Party had not.
Are sexual harassment accusations taken less seriously when made against someone running for political office? In particular, the presidency of the U.S.?
The High Court in London has dismissed the appeal of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, paving the way for his extradition to Sweden and eventually the United States.
“Two wrongs don’t make a right.” It’s a lesson taught from the time we start grade school … at least most us. But it seems as if maybe, just maybe, no one at Penn State University ever heard of it before.
You can’t put this back together. It’s on the ground in a million pieces. An icon, a legend and by all accounts a great man stood by and watched an assistant coach allegedly molest children. No explanation will satisfy the questions. Joe Paterno had to go. But how did it get this far?
