It’s time to shut down campus shouter-downers
By Guest Column Thursday, May 28, 2015
MADISON, Wisconsin—With increasing frequency, especially on college campuses, speakers presenting unpopular views—or views unpopular with a vocal minority of the audience—are being disrupted or “shouted down” until they leave the stage. This has happened at my own campus and many others.
Saved from a world of negativity
By Herman Cain Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Some days we get callers to the Herman Cain Radio Show that are not quite connecting all the dots, and are in denial of the failed policies of the Obama Administration. They usually spend their minute on Rapid Fire accusing me of being anti-Obama, denying the truth, and bringing up any and every past failure of Republicans and conservatives.

Please note this Boston U prof who detests white men (but do not fire her or demand an apology)
By Dan Calabrese Thursday, May 14, 2015
I present to you, Saida Grundy, an assistant professor of sociology and African American studies at Boston University - and apparently quite the piece of work insofar as she wants more open discussion about what a gigantic problem white males are on college campuses. But I also rise in defense of Assistant Prof. Grundy, because I believe she should suffer no consequence and pay no price for saying what she said.

As someone who had the great good fortune to have had a remarkable mother, a woman who embraced being my Mother by providing unconditional love and support for my various activities and decisions over the course of my life, I approach the subject of motherhood with the knowledge that this does not apply to everyone.

Fashion by Any Other Name Is Still Clothes
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Friday, April 24, 2015

Confederate Memorial Day in the South
By Calvin E. Johnson Jr. Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Tennessee Senator Edward Ward Carmack said it best in 1903:
“The Confederate Soldiers were our kinfolk and our heroes. We testify to the country our enduring fidelity to their memory. We commemorate their valor and devotion. There were some things that were not surrendered at Appomattox. We did not surrender our rights and history; nor was it one of the conditions of surrender that unfriendly lips should be suffered to tell the story of that war or that unfriendly hands should write the epitaphs of the Confederate dead. We have the right to teach our children the true history of the war, the causes that led up to it and the principles involved.”
