  • Guns on campus and the second amendment as a mainstream value

    Whenever a college campus or workplace or general region considers affirming armed adults, there come objections from officials which rival those of the gun control organizations. Here is the core of the second amendment: independence from officials who would suggest they can do personal safety better. When they cannot, they then do more of it, and bureaucracy grows. The problem is that you can’t talk to them - not even conservatives - and ever expect them to understand that the kind of independence we have in this country is independence from them, especially. Yes, independence from conservatives as much as...

    The 17-year-old high school senior waded into a sea of communist red to deliver the truth of liberty in the form the US Constitution to the political pagans assembled. In the process, Patrick was verbally assaulted by an old man who graphically described sexual tea-bagging to the high school student. The incident took place during dueling protests in Jefferson City, Missouri, and was caught on two separate video cameras Patrick had grabbed a stack of Pocket Constitutions and Declarations offered for free by the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition The Tea Party held a rally on the south side of...
  • Lott: Arms and the Student(NH)

    A few hundred yards from where I’m writing this column, just across the river in Vermont, 16-year-olds are allowed to purchase and carry a loaded handgun without needing anyone’s permission. Here in New Hampshire, an 18-year-old can openly carry a pistol without a concealed carry permit. Dartmouth’s campus, with its strict ban on privately-owned handguns, stands out amidst these “wild” lands of gun-toting teenagers. Before you start worrying about your next trip into downtown Hanover, however, consider that in 2009 there was just one handgun murder in New Hampshire and zero in Vermont. New Hampshire, which last year was named...

    Maybe the best video you will watch coming out of the Wisconsin Teachers job action. But then again, there’s so much. The teachers have made up the bulk of the protestors pushing back against Tea Party Governor Scott Walker’s austerity plan. But it’s the students … ahhh … the students, who have provided able backup with people power and … ways to solve the crisis. Teach … your children well … their parents hell … and so yada, yada. As teachers disrupted class at the state capitol to protest Scott’s plan to change the mostly teachers compensation plans, students took...

    Members of an African American Student Union were left open-mouthed and outraged after a white, freshman was hired for a top job within the group. Torey McCleskey, a first year student at University of North Florida, was handed the coveted assistant director role, after a unanimous decision from the institution's Senate. However AASU members argue that Mr McCleskey, an athletic training and sports medicine student, has never actually set foot in the AASU's office.

    This just in: there are still good people in the world. A woman who found $2,000 in a thrift store item turned it in and was rewarded for her good deeds, said Value Village District Manager Lance Letson. Letson said the shopper, Yekaterina Shneyderova, 22, was looking at a cash box for sale at his Roswell store Friday when she opened it and found the dough, all in $100 bills. The box also contained financial records of a Marietta couple. Shneyderova, a Kennesaw State student, said as soon she saw the cash she knew she had to return it to...

In the middle of class Mary Botas told one of her students to “go shoot yourself.” **SNIP** “I had her as a teacher when I was in school,” said Pam. “I had no problem with her then.” However, no one, not even Botas feels that in any way excuses or justifies her comments in class. “She was very upset that she had reacted the way she had,” said Trimboli. “She was remorseful, she...

    A senior student leader in Britain faced criticism and calls to resign on Sunday after claiming that historic Jewish suffering is a modern fabrication aimed at allowing Jews to persecute Arabs. Clare Solomon, president of the University of London Student Union, who was raised Mormon, wrote on her Facebook page, “The view that Jews have been persecuted all throughout history is one that has been fabricated in the last 100 or so years to justify the persecution of the Palestinians. To paint the picture that all Jews have always had to flee persecution is just plainly inaccurate.” Her comments were...

    As a blind Muslim woman, Mona Ramouni has had to make do without a guide dog her whole life. The 28-year-old's strictly religious parents would not allow a dog in the house, considering the animal unclean. But then Miss Ramouni stumbled across a website article about miniature guide horses in April 2008. 'It was something that I never thought about for myself,' she said. The psychology student used three years of savings from her job at a Braille proofreading company to pay for a horse to be trained to act as her guide. Since welcoming three-year-old guide horse Cali into...

    HAMILTON (FOX 25 / - A teen's spirit week stunt has landed him in hot water. Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Senior Dan Depaolis, dressed in medieval garb, rode a horse into the school's parking lot as part of spirit week. What he, and his parents, thought was a good-natured stunt, the school deemed dangerous. Depaolis was suspended from school for two days. The vice principal allegedly suspended the 17-year-old even after the boy’s father explained that the horse was brought in on a trailer and that no one was in danger. The father tells FOX25 the school compared the...

    Once again, we have a one-sided lefty article out of the San Francisco Chronicle – this time, it’s an emotional appeal to highlight the unfortunate lack of funding for illegal immigrants’ college education. Alejandro Jimenez has got to be the luckiest “undocumented” immigrant in the state of California. Thanks to the soft, one-sided writing of Nanette Asimov, his law-breaking story is written to be, well, heart-breaking. Instead of rightly playing it down the middle, and discussing both sides of the heated and relevant California immigration issue, Asimov used Jimenez’s story to pull at the heartstrings of readers who think there...

    Broken record indeed. The only answer President Obama has in response to questions like the one asked yesterday in Iowa is that he knows times are tough, but at least kids have health care until they are 26 and the government took over the “terrible” student loan system. The president answered the "my son's losing hope" question with his standard BS answer ... which means NOTHING to the kid or the mom. They are running on the passed health care legislation and taking over the student loan market! That's REALLY what they are running on!

    All our young lives we’re taught to seek out the authorities when we’re in trouble. For young women who are victims of rape, this includes reporting the crime in the face of one’s own personal shame and agony to seek justice where it is due and prevent the perpetrator from raping again. In a suburb of Pittsburgh, a startling lawsuit turns this conventional wisdom upside down. And, according to high-profile criminal attorney, Rene Sandler, no matter how the suit plays out, it reveals a disturbing lack of judgment on the part of those authorities we’re taught to trust. The suit...
