3 May 2014 11:27 pm
A freshman at Princeton University wrote an epic rebuttal to the numerous occasions that he’s been told to “check your privilege.”
Tal Fortgang has been at the Ivy League school for only eight months, but has already grown weary of the social justice campaign that assumes he’s there because he’s a white male.
Fortgang posted his story on “The Princeton Tory,” a blogsite touted as “a journal of conservative and moderate thought,” where he explained that some opinions are disregarded merely because of the person voicing them.
“’Check your privilege,’ the saying goes, and I have been reprimanded …

The Portland African American Leadership Forum sent a scathing letter in December to city leaders, saying the plan would price residents out of the area and the group“remains opposed to any development in North/Northeast Portland …

25 Nov 2013 12:25 am
Fox News analyst and author Charles Krauthammer called Hillary Clinton a “paper tiger” and said she cannot be considered a shoo-in for president.
When people actually look at the real Clinton and her record, they will vote for someone else, Krauthammer told Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson on Friday.
“She was unbeatable. She was the inevitable candidate in ’08,” Krauthammer said. “She turned out to be not that good as a candidate.”
Clinton will be nominated, he added, explaining that Democrats have almost religious feelings about her and see her as an icon.
“But if that translates into the general election, I’m …

16 Nov 2013 6:17 am

13 Nov 2013 5:52 am

“I’m sure that they would love it if you would happily give up your current policy, if you’d happily pay higher costs so that other people can be insured,” Limbaugh said. …
