Nicholas Johnson

February 22, 2018

I guess I should talk about guns, though, if I’m being honest, I don’t want to, and I know others will be covering guns in some capacity later in this issue. Regardless, I want to give my opinion, if I  have one, which I may find in the course of writing this essay that I do not.  My senior ye...

Nicholas Johnson

February 16, 2018

It has been an interesting first year for President #45, to say the least. By certain metrics, Donald Trump has certainly lived up to expectations. By number of tweets tweeted per year, he is far and away the most productive President in our nation’s history.  The same likely remains true if h...

As the awaited talk by Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro approaches, I am wondering what type of slanderous flyers leftist student groups will litter campus this time. Most people likely remember when Canadian author Lauren Southern paid a visit to campus this past fall and how flyers depicting So...

Political Violence

Charlie Gers

February 16, 2018

The 2016 presidential election was, without a doubt, the most divisive election we have seen in our lifetime as college students. Numerous romantic partnerships, Thanksgiving dinners, and friendships were shattered. Casual conversations about politics over a cup of coffee with friends ceased to exist an...

Deranged Dems need Help

Pissed Off Patriot

February 16, 2018

Democrats have no platform other than hating Trump. Their message solely consists of attacking everything the president and his allies support. The President has even trolled them into defending things that he himself hates. This derangement was on full display during the State of the Union, as Democrats sa...

Bureaucracies Suck at Everything

Michael Ziebarth

February 16, 2018

We let bloated incompetent bureaucratic institutions control huge parts of our lives and the tolerance for this ineptitude must stop. This includes this university, local and state governments and worst of all the federal government.  These bureaucracies grow rapidly to a point where they are un...

The 60th annual Grammy awards ceremony included what seems to be the same unwanted song and dance as every pop-culture awards show.

David Blondin

February 16, 2018

It has been a full year since President Donald Trump has taken office and he still is not tired of winning. Trump’s State of the Union address only showcased that not only is he still winning, but the Democrats are consciously making the choice to keep losing. The DNC, with their lack of emotion sh...

January 29, 2018

  The magic of the Olympics lies in their infrequency. In every games, the drama of every moment is intensified exponentially. When a skater falls on her triple axel, or a sprinter jumps a split-second before the gun, the emotional punch hits the viewer like a ten-pound bus. One can only imagine t...
