Well it’s been a long campaign season already, but we’re mere days away from the most anticipated day of the election cycle. I’m speaking, of course, about Jan. 19, 2012 — the day Herman Cain will announce whom he’s endorsing.
We have heard a lot from Republicans about liberty and upholding citizens’ rights. Voting is a right many of us hold dear. So, why are Republicans throughout the states passing laws making it more difficult for college students to vote?
Earlier this month the Democratic-controlled Senate voted 93 to 7 in favor of approving the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes the military to unilaterally detain indefinitely without trial any individual anywhere in the world – including U.S. citizens within the U.S.
As easy as it is for liberals — at least the liberals who haven’t swooned by his libertarian seduction — to write off Congressman Ron Paul’s (R-TX) as a crackpot, they should be cautious. Albeit the septuagenarians wrinkles and languor, he embodies curious ideas and wisdom for the country.
Although technology seems like an integral part of our lives, from banking to schoolwork and correspondence, it is hard to believe it has also affected the dating game.
Biology 105 here at EMU has two obvious effects: wrecking your GPA and, less bitterly, the reification of concerns about our world with regard to climate change.
Structuring electoral districts for political advantage has a long and proud tradition in American history.
Did I say proud? I meant disgraceful.
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.
