Viewpoint Diversity On Campus

Heterodox U has put together a guide. My alma mater in Ann Arbor doesn’t fare well, but at least it’s not Missouri or Oregon. Keep it in mind both in sending your kid there, or hiring.

The Childishness Sweeping America

Thoughts from Bob Zimmerman:

The worst aspect of all these stories is how this childish intolerant behavior is becoming increasingly violent and aggressive. Unfortunately, our society does not seem to know how to stop it, and thus I expect it to only grow worse in the coming years, no matter who wins this coming election.

Like related things, it won’t end well.

One-Party Government

More Americans want it. Because the Left has succeeded in dumbing down the populace about the founding principles of the Republic. I agree with this:

…since the GOP will almost certainly hold the House — and looks like it’s got a good chance with the Senate — if you want one-party government you need to elect Trump. On the other hand, Trump’s so different from the Republicans in Congress that it would still be divided government, really. Which I personally find more of a comfort than a disappointment.


Twitter Censorship

Yes, “keep driving” would have been a better formulation, but as he says, it’s Twitter. I’ve also noticed that these suspension seem to be entirely one sided:

They tell users and investors that they don’t censor, but they seem awfully quick to suspend people on one side of the debate and, as people over at Twitchy note, awfully tolerant of outright threats on the other.

Not that I’m trying to be, but I’m a little surprised that I’ve never had a problem. Yet.
