How I’d Handle The Crazies At Nutball U.

Yesterday’s Tom Woods Letter, which all the influential people receive every weekday. Be one of them.

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump morphs into Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton before our eyes, the campuses are as loopy as ever.

CampusReform.org reports that students at Salem College have presented the administration with an “ultimatum” regarding the intolerable atmosphere of oppression that exists on campus.

This is how they characterize life under a typical left-leaning college administration.

Other statements were forthcoming from the college; all of them spoke in solemn tones about the grave importance of the issues raised by the students.

My response would have been:
