Census is crucial for America

Last week every household in the United States recieved their large white Census envelope to complete and return to the government in order to calculate how many people are living within our borders. And while the task of indicating how many individuals live in your house, as well as their ages, is seemingly innocent, it has garnered some unwarranted criticism from big government foes. However, this...

Wanted: One good candidate

Wanted: One good candidate
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief California must be in really bad shape. Every day I read something that highlights that point, but the Golden State’s deep problems might be indicative of the group of politicians running for governor this year. And if you don’t know the cast of characters then you haven’t been watching much TV, because Meg Whitman’s ads are on almost more than “Friends” reruns....

Jason Neidleman on health care, Coldplay
When Associate Professor of Political Science Jason Neidleman isn’t teaching he’s taking his daughter to preschool five minutes away from his house. At La Verne Neidleman teachs courses on political and legal theory, public law, state and local politics, and Middle Eastern politics and history. He is also the pre-law adviser at the University and the faculty adviser for the Pre-Law Society. /... 

CPAC auditions as a comedy show

CPAC auditions as a comedy show
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief No “30 Rock”? No “Office”? The Winter Olympics might have prevented your usual NBC laughs last week (and this week) but there was something on C-SPAN that could have just as easily filled your comedic void. C-SPAN isn’t usually synonymous with laugh out loud comedy, despite what Jon Stewart is able to do with it, but the annual Conservative Political Action... 

Newt Gingrich talks leadership at Claremont lecture

Newt Gingrich talks leadership at Claremont lecture
Politics take a back seat at the former speaker’s Scripps appearance. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich addressed a welcoming crowd of about 600 at the Garrison Theater at Scripps College on Wednesday. Gingrich delivered a humor-filled speech on the basic steps to effective leadership. Politics were only addressed during the question-and-answer portion and he then participated in a... 

Let 'em filibuster

Let 'em filibuster
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief In President Obama’s first State of the Union address he resembled the candidate who was swept into office last November. Unfortunately we have only seen glimpses of this president however through no fault of his own he has acquired one messy situation after another that understandably juxtaposes what was necessary and what his loyal base wanted. But in an effort to... 

Franken amendment is a no-brainer

There are few things in life that are complete no-brainers. The amendment to the FY2010 Defense Appropriations Bill proposed by newly elected Minnesota Sen. Al Franken essentially ensures people employed by defense contractors with the Department of Defense can sue corporations without being forced into private, internal arbitration. Franken was inspired to write this amendment following the Jamie... 

Keep the Internet free from oppression

Keep the Internet free from oppression
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist The topic of Internet is boring, but it is interesting to see just how many people have practically zero knowledge about it. It seems that most people only know how open a browser and enter in a Web site. In my family, if I asked my father to do something as small as, say, check my online bank account while I’m away, I’m pretty sure his head will explode.... 

The case for moderation

The case for moderation
Dan Sayles, Sports Editor I like to think of myself as a reasonable man. I have my beliefs, convictions, oddities, the like, but I don’t feel threatened when they are questioned or in conflict. I take it on a case-by-case basis. Is this principle irrelevant now? Do I rethink some of my beliefs when necessary when the situation calls for it? Yes, yes I do. However, it’s not always that simple, and... 

What happened to civility?

Lately civilized debate does not get air time. Unfortunately, uttering facts – long, complicated facts – does not get air time. Respectfulness to people, tradition and customs does not get air time either. While this editorial is not about the media’s role in who gets reported on and who does not, it has become the norm to give the loudest, most disrespectful person the main coverage, even if...
