As you may have heard, 15 former students at the embattled for-profit Corinthian Colleges have gone on strike, refusing to make their student loan payments. The debtors and their allies want to raise awareness of the crushing burden of student loans, and the misguided way we finance higher education in America.
If you’re looking for signs that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is serious about seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, you could do worse than his appearance this past weekend on Fox News Sunday, in which Walker slogged through what has become a rite of passage for GOP White House aspirants: the rightward lurch/mea culpa on immigration reform.
In early 2006, AOL and Yahoo announced plans to charge senders of email a small "postage fee" to have their email delivered to AOL and Yahoo customers. This fee would cost roughly one-fourth of a penny per email, so small as to be virtually insignificant. While not particularly onerous in the context of real space, where delivering mail has per item costs, this was a potential blow to the emerging politics of the internet world.
Around two and a half years ago, a well-publicized sexual-assault scandal rocked the Air Force's basic training program in San Antonio. Nearly 70 people came forward to accuse more than 30 training instructors of offenses including unwanted touching, inappropriate relationships, and rape. General Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, described sexual assault as a "cancer" infecting the culture of the base.
In the wake of the scandal, the Air Force set up 24-hour hotlines in dorms, launched leadership training for basic training instructors, increased the number of female training instructors, and implemented dozens of other changes.
Could Jeb Bush wind up supporting gay marriage?
If the former Florida governor does, he will be the first major Republican presidential candidate to do so (Jon Huntsman waited until after his 2012 campaign was over to declare, "Marriage equality is a conservative cause").
The speculation was started by BuzzFeed's McKay Coppins, who reported on Bush's gay-friendly campaign team:
When Bush officially launches his presidential bid later this year, he will likely do so with a campaign manager who has urged the Republican Party to adopt a pro-gay agenda; a chief strategist who signed a Supreme Court amicus brief arguing for marriage equality in California; a longtime adviser who once encouraged her minister to stick to his guns in preaching equality for same-sex couples; and a communications director who is openly gay.
Remember when George W. Bush sold himself as a "compassionate conservative"? Of course you do. Now, his brother Jeb is using a similar formulation, describing himself as an "inclusive conservative." The difference may seem trivial at first, but the Bushes are no fools when it comes to winning elections. And this difference tells us something about the changing perception of the parties, as well as the changing priorities of left and right.
In both cases, the descriptors seek to soften or modify "conservative." Back in 1999 and 2000, some felt that "compassionate conservative" was kind of backhanded, implying that plain old conservatives aren't compassionate.
