This site focuses on Republican politicians and conservatives that rip off their constituency. We have the Tea Party, fundamentalist churches, the corruption of ALEC and other special interests groups. But the site also supports progressive Democrats and the local Democratic Socialist of America. We must have ideas on how to replace regressive and corrupt politicians with something better.

Athletic Department’s decision could wipe out college tradition
Once again the Wichita State
University Administration is messing with the student body:
I’ve been told time
and time again college is the best years of your life.
College is the time
when you’re supposed to experience new things and have fun. On its own, college
isn’t inherently fun unless you get out and push yourself to experience the
once-in-a-lifetime moments you can only do in your 20s.

haven’t exactly experienced all of the fun moments in college. I attended
community college for two years where the “experience” of college was a distant
reality. Now, as a fifth-year college student, I’m at a point where I want to
be involved all of the fun, one-of-a-kind college experiences.

miss experiences I’ve been looking forward to is in jeopardy of losing its
Marshallville, a WSU
student organization, is currently putting together plans for their
fifth-annual campout. As per tradition, students in Marshallville arrange a
campout — welcome to all students — for the last game of the year.....
the athletic department is considering backing out on their promise to
Marshallville directors that ensured the Black Cards would be distributed
during the campout, and instead will distribute Black Cards for the game
against Cincinnati at Wednesday’s men’s game against Tulane, and then again at
the women’s game against Tulane on Saturday.
The Black Card system was
developed with the intent to increase student attendance at WSU sporting
events, like women’s basketball, that oftentimes don’t get the same student
attendance numbers. That’s largely the reason the athletic department is
considering rewarding students who show their support to the women on Saturday. For the rest click here.
