Around 100 students walked out of West Linn High School in Oregon last week in protest of the school’s decision to allow a Chick-fil-A food truck to sell chicken sandwiches during one of the school’s football games, among other microaggressions they said were making LGBT students feel “unsafe.” “West Linn High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance organized […]

You could always protest censorship by the Chinese government, stand with the Hong Kong protestors, call for better infrastructure and more ADA-compliant buildings and sidewalks, call for better measures for street safety, or even better yet, talk about how broken the public education system is.

The ambitious attempt to standardize learning across the country known as Common Core can now be measured and the news isn't good. ACT scores are down, as is college readiness among those who spent all of high school with Common Core.

In this tech-savvy city, it’s not easy for authorities to spin the political crisis.

"In these and the like cases, when the government is dissolved, the people are at liberty to provide for themselves by erecting a new legislative, differing from the other by the change of persons or form, or both, as they shall find it most for their safety and good....

There is therefore secondly another way whereby governments are dissolved, and that is when the legislative or the prince either of them act contrary to their trust.... when they endeavor to invade the property of the subject and to make themselves, or any part of the community, masters or arbitrary disposers of the lives, liberties, or fortunes of the people...."

-- John Locke, Chapter 19, Second Treatise of Government (1681)

Gab has experienced a huge growth spurt in the first half of 2019, a worrying sign of the spread of hateful ideologies and radicalization online.

So, your attempts to smear and censor Gab only made Gab bigger and stronger, eh? Who could've guessed except every other sane person in this world? Now, go scream in the wind some more.

When a man has sex with a woman without consent, that's rape. Should it be rape when a woman coerces a man into sex?

Dunkin' is going after some of their almost 10,000 franchisees who employ undocumented workers and have reportedly gone after at least 30 stores since late 2018.

I'm sure there's probably gonna be a few folks pissed off about this, but I just wanna remind folks right now: verifying that workers are legally allowed to work in the United States is a normal part of the employment process. Everyone who wants to get employed has to do an I-9 form, regardless of national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. β€” Production site going up in former warehouse near Downtown

Hooray! We're giving more government money to large, out-of-state corporations. Hooray....

To clarify, I'm not mad that NBCUniversal is coming here nor am I mad about Netflix coming here. I'm simply suggesting that there's significantly better ways to raise money for this kind of stuff than through government subsidies.

Petition seeks to end liquor sales at International District 7-Eleven

I'd suggest declaring that gas station a nuisance and forcing the owners to make specific changes within X amount of days or else, they'll face a specific consequence like losing their liquor license or demolition.
