(Akiit.com) It is astonishing that in this day and age – after nearly 70 years of cable TV, 30 years of conservative talk radio, almost 30 years of the internet, two full decades of broadcast dominance by Fox News, a decade-plus of social media and multiple elections (2010, 2014 and 2016) in which the electorate sent a scathing rebuke to this country’s self-appointed elites – the professional... [Read more of this review]


National Emergencies Are Not Rare, How Would President Donald Trump’s Compare? National Emergencies Are Not Rare, How Would President Donald Trump’s Compare?

(Akiit.com) A legal debate is furiously raging over whether or not the president can declare a national emergency to fund a border wall. I’m no legal expert, but fortunately, I don’t need to be to understand how senseless the argument against President Trump’s power to do this is.

(Akiit.com) This week the marketing department of Gillette shaving products, an arm of Procter and Gamble, decided to step into the political correctness arena and lecture men about bullying, sexism, misogyny and sexual assault. In their self-righteous attack on men, Gillette left women out of the commercial.  The commercial that aired showed two young boys wrestling in the backyard at a barbecue,... [Read more of this review]


‘People’s State of the Union’ Must Happen Soon. ‘People’s State of the Union’ Must Happen Soon.

(Akiit.com) Two questions lead straight to an answer on the State of the Union standoff: First, does a House Speaker have the right to ban a president from the House gallery? It would seem so. Second, what has been the setting for some of President Trump’s most rousing and riveting connective moments? That would be at large rallies. Boom. Problem solved. State of the Union addresses have become... [Read more of this review]

LA Lakers Lebron James Slave Comment Is Dead Wrong. LA Lakers Lebron James Slave Comment Is Dead Wrong.

(Akiit.com) It is a familiar argument that falls short on every level. The case that I am alluding to is the tendency of Black athletes to equate their status to that of enslaved Africans. Rarely do I encounter an argument that is equal parts disingenuous and historically unsupportable.

(Akiit.com) Equity has been a huge buzzword in the field of education this year. Education advocates and politicians alike have called for an increase in educational equity, but what does the term really mean? Equity is not Equality. Equity creates equality by prioritizing resources to students who need them the most. For example, think of a typical track meet. There are five runners – each in their... [Read more of this review]
