Tuesday night, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be center stage in the national political discussion.
As classes start back up and the spring semester begins, so too does the semiannual tradition of syllabus week. We’ve all experienced it at least once: the first week of class where students acclimate to the material, classroom and teacher prior to actually beginning to learn the subject matter.
Depending on where they call home, students probably heard very different versions of President Obama's executive action on gun control that was announced over winter break. Liberal households heard about the President's teary-eyed plea for common sense solutions that the NRA-owned Republicans have been blocking in the legislature. Conservatives, on the other hand, learned of Obama's gun grab and how it's only step one of the liberal agenda's assault on the Second Amendment and law-abiding citizens. In some ways, both versions are correct while in others, they're both wrong.
Last semester, the Republican primary race took a turn for the strange and hateful. Then it took another turn. And another. And another. And another…
Recently, Donald Trump has found himself at the center of another debate about political correctness. But this time, surprisingly, he is the victim, rather than the perpetrator.
No one should have to abandon a baby.
Several weeks ago, Joshua Feuerstein, a self-proclaimed social media personality, derided Starbucks for their alleged “War on Christmas," a merciless yet covert assault he contends is evinced by their lack of holiday-themed cups. Anyone who has recently satisfied their mocha craving at a local Starbucks has stood on the front lines of the coffee chain’s purported holiday onslaught and has witnessed firsthand the Grinch that is the new plain red cup, stripped bare of all holiday cheer.
Every generation in America has had its own characteristics that differentiate it from all the others. Whether it is the G.I., the Silent Generation, the Baby Boomers or Generation X, the national attitude of Americans around the same age is largely consistent as a whole. But what is there for the newest generation, the Millennials? Are we to immediately enter the workplace and settle down to start a family; are we destined to travel the earth and bring about total globalization or are we responsible with the task of remaking our lifestyle and bringing about world change?
“I just need a vacation,” she droned. A week later she props her feet up on a leather footrest on a first class flight to Uganda. Champagne in hand, she smiles for her Instagram.
The beginning of December means a surge in sales for many seasonal goods. Children's toys, electronics, Santa hats and wrapping paper will all be flying off the shelves in the coming weeks (if they haven't all been snatched up already). Campus is no different, though the demand is driven more by finals than by holiday cheer. Coffee, energy drinks and Adderall are staples of exams weeks at campuses nationwide.
As most people know, the American prison system has some real problems. In many ways, our prisons are inhumane, inefficient and unjust, and in few cases is that as blindingly obvious as in the use of solitary confinement.
We cover national politics a lot in the Opinion section, or at least we have as my time here.
Picture, for me, a terrorist.
The marginalization of ethnic minorities is just one of the many social challenges our society faces, and one manner in which it manifests itself is the societal push towards conformity to the Standard English.
In many residence halls, visitors of the opposite sex must leave after a certain hour. Nowhere on campus are men and women allowed to share a room. These are simple and seldom-questioned facts of campus life. There is also no reason at all for these policies.
Let me get this out of the way: The attacks on Paris were barbaric, horrifying and absolutely tragic in all senses of the words. As a nation, we must support France as much as we can. But to those who call for an invasion of Syria by the United States military, please look to recent history before repeating the same mistakes of the early 2000s.
I’ve had the displeasure of reading Ken Ray’s letter in response to Linden Atelsek’s (admittedly partisan) column, “We don’t need another Reagan.” Rarely have I read something as patronizing or pedantic in under 300 words. Mr. Ray must be a parent; his article reads like a father bending a toddler across his knee. I half expected him to say, “Hush, Linden. The adults are talking.”
Regular readers of The Daily Gamecock may have noticed a difference in the opinion section last week.
