The Senate voted to “table” the House Continuing Resolutions passed Saturday night to fund the government with a delay in Obamacare. It was a party-line vote. Remember to tweet the hastag #BlameHarryReid, which continues to rise (a/o 2:35):

Elizabeth Warren is playing the base perfectly. Stoking them up with class warfare and anti-Supreme Court demagoguery, yet playing coy to a presidential bid. But her train is…

In his column yesterday, Hassan does Manhattan, Thomas Friedman wrote about Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani: 1) He’s not here by accident. That is, this Iranian charm offensive is not because Rouhani, unlike his predecessor, went to charm school. Powerful domestic pressures have driven him here. 2) We are finally going to…

For a government shutdown if it happens. The U.S. Senate is dysfunctional because of Harry Reid. No budget. No votes on most House legislation. No nothing except his way or the highway. We’re seeing it again in the Continuing Resolution and Debt Ceiling battles.  Because Reid has shut down and shut out Republican voices, the only way…

Political correctness is driving campus problems underground without solving anything.

College “confession” forums replace open dialogue in a world of speech codes

Posted by

On the surface, college dialogue seems to be all about  ’open-mindedness’ and ‘tolerance.’ To create this impression of a tolerant environment, many universities have “speech codes” that penalize politically incorrect speech, sometimes with severe consequences. For instance,  Florida Atlantic University insists in vague terms that “everyone in the FAU community behave and speak to and about…
