“For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” This was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s bold prediction in July. Those moderates, sickened...

With the outcome of the 2016 election, life as we know it has changed. This election has made history, but not in the way we hoped it would. As soon as the new president-elect was announced, protests broke out on college campuses across the country. To a lot of people, these demonstrations seem confusin...

Thick skin key for Trump years

I understand that many of you are pissed-off, afraid and/or worried by the election of Donald Trump, and rightfully so. This is the first time the political shit has really hit the fan in your young lives. I remember freaking out when Reagan was elected as president (against my vote) in 1980, the sam...

Cognitive dissonance is the state of having inconsistent thoughts or beliefs relating to behavioral decisions and attitude changes — it’s challenging long-held learned beliefs and structures ingrained in oneself. Have you ever wondered how many times a person changes their mind in a day? Does...

Shock value is no longer edgy

One of my favorite things is when comedians make snide remarks about America’s political correctness “issue.” They think they’ve got millennials by the balls because they’ve been calling us out for being special snowflakes who can’t take a joke. By now, you’ve probably heard dozens of...

Solidarity is key for real freedom

It’s time for us to stand together against a still oppressive America. Not as individual groups, advocating for equity and equality for specific racial groups, but as a whole coalition. The only way we’re going to beat this tidal wave of systematic oppression, is by becoming allies of one another’s...

Last week, the Experience covered how some Los Medanos College instructors are integrating the election into their lectures. But we would like to suggest that more classes inject politics into classes every year, not just the fall semesters following the Summer Olympics. Some instructors might object...

Dear Kayleigh McEnany: If, one day, I am lucky enough to be blessed with a daughter of my own, I would want her to share many of your qualities. Your education pedigree speaks volumes for your work ethic — Georgetown, Harvard, and Cambridge are universities I have never even dreamed of attending. You...

It’s time for us to stand together against a still oppressive America. Not as individual groups, advocating for equity and equality for specific racial groups, but as a whole coalition. The only way we’re going to beat this systematic oppression, is by becoming allies of one another’s movements. In the ‘60s, ...
