Filed under Opinion

Republicans are scrambling to “repeal and replace” Obamacare with little consensus so far on how to accomplish it. Citizens are worried about their coverage. The student health care that our $19 per semester pays for is fairly comprehensive, but it won’t last forever. If the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is repealed, then what? What will be available when we leave school?...

Journalist Dan Rather calls it "an emergency." And it is. Said Rather, "The time for normalizing, dissembling, and explaining away Donald Trump has long since passed. The barring of respected journalistic outlets from the White House briefing is so far beyond the norms and traditions that have governed this republic for generations, that they must be seen as a real and present th...

James Call

November 9

Filed under Opinion

The Electoral College is an anachronism that has never worked the way the Founders intended. And it caused unintended problems almost immediately. A tie in the Electoral College between Thomas Jefferson and his intended vice president, Aaron Burr, in the election of 1800, threw the contest into the House of Representatives. Jefferson narrowly made the presidency after 36 tie...
