Liberals Are The Least Tolerant Students On Campus

I recently read an article published by The Federalist that discussed a survey by Dartmouth College that showed Liberals are the least tolerant on campuses.

Which isn't a surprise when you read about or watch on tv the protest going on at college campuses across the country. Even Ann Coulter had to cancel a speaking engagement at University of California at Berkeley after students threatened violence.

Liberals have coddled these kids into believing that their views are the only right views and that is not how freedom works. Colleges have become bastions of liberal thinking, that claims to be inclusive until you disagree with them. And unfortunately for these kids, when they get in the real world they will learn soon that no cares about how they feel.

We have to stop baby our kids and prepare them for the harsh realities of life. Allowing them to throw temper tantrums because someone disagrees with them is not only problematic but will not help them has they journey through the harsh realities of life.

What Day 101 of the Trump Administration Should Look Like

We’re several hours from the much vaunted Day 100 of the current administration, and I can’t help but think, “So what?”  Yes, there are many symbolic interpretations to be taken from this time-honored tradition.  But I challenge you: does it really matter? Is our republic so weak as to rely so heavily on what a man can do in an arbitrary set of days?  Our Founders never envisioned this in the role of the Executive Branch.  Their expectations for government more broadly were never so ambitious.  They were going for progression, not perfection.  And for that reason, I’m hopeful for our nation.  So the better question the President, his allies and the Congress should be asking is:  What does Day 101 look like?

There are many challenges. The President must continue to shift and show the country that he is a leader who came to Washington to govern, and be president for all.  That means taking care of the business of the nation – passing laws, paying bills, diplomacy abroad.  These are the pillars of the republic, and ones we should be focusing on. 

I think Day 101 and the weeks beyond should be spent on three critical areas.  If Trump can show progress there, he will send a strong message to the nation and the world that his is an administration that means business.

It's time for Republicans to combat Liberal ideology on college campuses

As Republicans, we have to combat liberal ideology on college campuses. Liberals are corrupting our young people with their values and belief system, which by in large does not lead to a more prosperous and capitalist society.

We haven't articulated why conservative ideas are better not only for America but also for our young people. Many of them are responsible young adults, going to college to get an education so that they can contribute to society. After college, many of them work hard and begin the process of paying off the large amount of student debt they accumulated over the 4-year process. However, it's hard because Democrats want to take their hard earned money and redistribute it, yet our young people are led to believe that this is the way government works. In fact, it is counterintuitive to how government and capitalism works.

Liberalism has a utopic view of the world, one that is not realistic and based on the premise that the government can make life better when in fact we know that when given the right tools and left to their own devices, people can better themselves.

Managing Time

Until individuals learn to manage their time, then and only then will they realize the sweetness of success and peace of getting the most from the journey of life.

At the end of each day, far too many of us wonder to ourselves, “Where did the time go?” There is the constant pressure to do more and keep more commitments; yet, we always find ourselves short on time. A great strategy to keep this from happening is to track your time throughout the day.

Take stock of the time you waste on tasks that provide little return on the time invested; do it religiously for a week, and you will start to get a clear picture of how you spend your time. Look for tasks you could delegate or hire someone to fulfill.

There is a multitude of books available to teach people the best ways to manage their time or to be more efficient in their work. But at the end of the day, buying time is often the best solution. After all, as the timeless adage correctly states—time is money and our loved, and cherished ones don't last forever.

Armstrong Williams Gives $250K to S.C. State

February 21, 2017 - Washington, DC and Orangeburg, SC--(HOWARD STIRK HOLDINGS JOURNALISM FOUNDATION, INC.)—Armstrong Williams, chairman of Howard Stirk Holdings (HSH) Journalism Foundation, Inc. and SC State University have entered into a definitive gift agreement under which Howard Stirk Holdings Journalism Foundation will create the Armstrong Williams Broadcast Scholarship Program via a commitment of $250,000 to SC State’s communications and journalism program.

Howard Stirk Holdings Journalism Foundation, Inc., Scholarship Program provides an optimal platform for introducing college students from underserved backgrounds to careers in journalism and broadcast media, which has traditionally failed to expose a broad cross-section of America’s young people to opportunities in the field. In its first year, the program will allow undergraduate students to receive scholarships in support of their education as they pursue a degree communications. 

“South Carolina State University is pleased to partner with Armstrong Williams and the Howard Stirk Holdings Journalism Foundation in support of the next generation of journalists,” said SC State President James E. Clark.

“Investments such as Williams’ contribution to SC State helps to further advance the academic stature of the university as builds a value proposition for other potential high net worth donors,” continued Clark.

As the largest black-owned television broadcaster in the United States, Williams is in a unique position to provide substantial opportunities for minorities in the media industry. The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) approval of Howard Stirk Holdings (the stations’ parent company) license applications in March 2015 paved the way for this historic partnership. Armstrong Williams HSH Scholarship program will help advance the FCC and its goals of increasing minority ownership and viewpoint diversity in broadcast media.

“This partnership with South Carolina State University represents a major commitment to strengthen and expand opportunities for young people that are so critical to our nation’s future,” said Armstrong Williams, CEO of Howard Stirk Holdings. “It will enable us to continue in the great tradition of South Carolina State Senator Clementa Pinkney, who used his position of influence to create countless opportunities for young people in our state. We want to pick up where he left off and do our part to cement a legacy of progress by creating opportunities for young people who have traditionally been excluded from the media industry.”

“We are honored by Williams’ commitment to the SC State University Foundation, and we appreciate this significant contribution to SC State,” said Kenneth G. Claxton, ’97, foundation board chair.

“We are always excited to receive donations such as this, but we are more than thrilled when alumni demonstrate their Bulldog pride through such significant financial contributions,” said A.L. Fleming, associate vice president for Institutional Advancement and executive director of the SC State University Foundation.

“This gift is particularly noteworthy as it is the largest individual alumni gift this year,” Fleming further noted.

HSH Journalism Foundation board of directors is compromised C. Boyden Gray, famed journalist Juan Williams, former NBA superstar and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, Benjamin Crump, Esquire and media lawyer Colby May. 

The scholarship will be awarded beginning fall 2017. For more information on the Armstrong Williams Broadcast Scholarship, contact the SC State University Foundation at (803) 536-7190.
