Lariat letter: Ruling in Kinghorn case was reasonable, unbaised

0
I am a bit surprised by the outrage on social media after the Student Court's decision in McCahill, Hardy v. Kinghorn. In my opinion, the court's 22-page analysis showed a high level of judicial knowledge and careful weighing of the evidence. The court ruled on specific violations of the Constitution and Senate bylaws

0
Danny Huizinga’s Sept.10 guest column titled “Viewpoint: Freedom from religion groups not helping kids” belittles Orange County Public Schools’ (Fla.) decision to eliminate football chaplains at the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s request. I’m the foundation attorney who showed the school system that their chaplains were unconstitutional.

Tesla Motors, Texas both acted against free market

0
News broke last week that Tesla, a California-based electric car company, had been banned from selling cars in several states due to lobbying pressure from existing car dealers. Though both sides in the debate are quick to claim they are fighting for a “free market,” there’s hypocrisy on both sides.

Putin shouldn’t win Nobel

If the Nobel Peace Prize wants to save its reputation, considering Vladimir Putin for the usually prestigious award is another step in the wrong direction. While Putin is in the running to be named a “champion of peace,” he is trying to forcibly annex Crimea, an autonomous republic in Ukraine.

Viewpoint: Abbott best for Texas

Viewpoint: ‘Mitt’ should help GOP brand its candidates

0
As intensive as the campaigns of 2012 were, it never seemed as if we got to know the real Mitt Romney. A new documentary, however, fills in those holes and gives us a moving description of the man who almost became president. Some might say, why focus on Romney now? His time has come and gone. He’s old news, damaged goods.

Lariat Letter: Free market has helped poor

Viewpoint: Democrats ruining court system

On Election Night, 2008, newly elected President Barack Obama remarked, “Tonight, you voted for action, not politics as usual.” Now six years later, this statement only adds another broken promise to the list.
