If you’re a Democrat, a progressive, a moderate Republican, a centrist or even just somewhat liberal, chances are you’re not too fond of the job President Donald Trump has been doing since the beginning of 2017.
I have already written about UW-Madison student voting requirements, but as I learn more, it becomes even more clear that Wisconsin’s citizens are suffering at the hands of current Republican legislators’ efforts to decrease voter turnout. After all, high voter turnout often results in a win for Democrats.
A boy living on my floor freshman year laughed as his friend called him “retarded” for missing the point to his joke. Retarded is a word loosely used in American society, often suggestively linked with other derogatory words like “idiot” or “stupid.” Somehow, many people don't realize the extent of the harmful damage their ignorance creates.
Let’s play a game. Name all the late night TV comedians you can think of in a minute. How many were women? Just one: Samantha Bee (if she even came to mind at all). Late night comedy shows are one of the most-viewed comedy platforms in America and almost all the hosts are men. So men must be funnier than women, right? If all of America’s favorite satirists are men comedy must just be a “man’s thing.” Like sports, carpentry and being seen as first-class citizens.
How can our local leaders directly help those they govern? This is a question that I have heard time and time again from students in District 8. I have also heard that I am not the right person to answer these questions because I am an 18-year-old male freshman. I seek to dispel this notion. I will help students by working tirelessly to improve our community.
Anti-Semitism is not an issue that only bothers me. It shakes me to my core. Anti-Semitism is real and often lacks recognition of its severity in the United States, but it pervades throughout society into our daily lives.
So I have some bad news for you: in your life there will always be people that frustrate you. This rude awakening came to me a few weeks ago when I decided that I wanted to start a coat collection for the homeless on State Street and someone on my floor stole the collection bin and everything in it that had been donated.
Combine a willingness to accept her identities with social media savvy, and the Democratic Party has itself a new darling. Honestly, it’s hard to resist: Ocasio-Cortez combines the razor-sharp wit of a millennial with political smarts (enough to topple Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives) so well that it’s hard to tell whether you want to be her best friend or if you want her to be president.
6:36 PM. Some of the first polls on the east coast have closed. The anticipation of the Blue Wave is high tonight.
Voting should be easier. This is a commonly held belief, yet there isn’t a consensus as to how to amend the problem. The United States fares poorly in voter turnout compared with other countries to an embarrassing extent. According to U.S.
Last week, I watched in awe as Derrick Rose dropped a career high 50 points against the defensively-minded Utah Jazz.
Cecil Rosenthal, a victim in the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, was a member of the organization Best Buddies.
In a recent Badger Herald opinion piece, a UW student criticized The Associated Students of Madison’s advisory role in the University, arguing that it does not have legitimate power because of a lack of direct enforcement capabilities.
It is ironic that people on this campus are upset over a mock apartheid wall yet are not upset over the fact that it represents the actual apartheid wall in Israel that blatantly denies Palestinians the right to return to their homelands and restricts their movement through the oppressive body that Israel is and always has been. Students for Justice in Palestine held a demonstration on Library Mall on Oct. 18, 2018, in memorializing 70 years of occupation the Palestinian people are undergoing today at the hands of Israel.
This summer I read Yossi Klein Halevi’s book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor. Each chapter is a letter directly addressed to his Palestinian neighbors, who live in the town adjacent to his settlement in the West Bank.
Among list marks of millennial I the can’t laundry stand hallmarks I can’t stand lies the phrase “entitlement,” closely followed by Tinder and veganized pastries. Baby boomers and Gen Xers think we’re ignorant to their reductive perception: The millennial girl Snapchatting down the street, disengaged, drafting a mental coordinate plot of every Starbucks within a 5 mile radius, on her way to 8 a.m.
