Ever since the horse-drawn omnibus was introduced in the 1820s, public transportation has been integral in American history. Whether it be by rail, street, or water, the transit of large amounts of individuals over the past two centuries has largely been handled by government. To find an example in yo...

Trying to take on the enormity of the Las Vegas shooting emotionally is a daunting task. Much that has been revealed to the public that should discourage even the brightest optimist. An apparently average guy, sixty-four-year-old Stephen Paddock spent eleven months building up a stockpile of thirty-three fi...

I am not a Republican. I’m not really much of anything. I have a few opinions. I’m a free speech nut. I think Ryan Gosling is a national treasure. I think more drugs should be legal, and that mashed potatoes are the worst part of Thanksgiving dinner. I think President Trump is a really bad dude. I ...

The leftist cartel that runs the mainstream media is so disgusting with its corruption and selective outrage. This is a crucial time in history where America needs a free and independent press to hold the gargantuan government accountable, along with making sure the American people have the straight st...

However, these inadequate living spaces are right on our campus. University of Minnesota on-campus housing is ...

The first thing about politics that everyone should know: Most people don’t care. It is physically impossible for people to care about the mayor’s race in Minneapolis: They probably could not tell you who Cam Gordon is if their lives depended on it.

Do leftists care about anyone? I am talking about the hardline leftists who run much of the media, the Democratic Party, Hollywood and academia. The fake conservatives that are running the show in Congress should probably also be included but that is for another day. Hardline leftists virtue signal al...

The Minneapolis city government has embraced a progressive agenda to help, or at least to look like they are helping their constituents.
