Under Governors Kean and Whitman, New Jersey established a reputation as a business-friendly state with a record of job growth and balanced budgets, but not anymore. I’ve seen Gov. McGreevey’s budget proposal for 2004. Even considering current economic circumstances, it’s not pretty. […]
After President Bush has proceeded with war, ignoring all dissent (as not to be ruled by focus groups), the storm of protest has been immense. On the morning after the war began, people took to the streets to express their displeasure with the Bush administration’s actions. […]

It’s Wednesday night, and I have about an hour to kill before my 11-2 security shift. I knew I wasn’t going to get any work accomplished, so I turned on the television. I channel surf all the way up to channel 71 to find MTV not playing videos, as usual, but “Sorority Life 2. […]
Unfortunately, war looks likely for the near future. All anti-war sentiment aside, there is just one small problem with the push for war: it will violate international law.
It’s funny because the main reason given by the Bush administration for war is that Saddam Hussein has violated international law, specifically U. […]
In one of my courses a few weeks ago, (Eat, Drink, Man, Woman), we were talking about what we were giving up for Lent. One student said she was giving up chocolate, another said she was giving up candy altogether. The whole time, I was thinking, “Shit, Lent is this Wednesday? What food am I going to give up this year?” I automatically thought about giving up food, nothing else immediately came to mind as something worth sacrificing. […]
Leftist liberal thinkers dominate this campus in many departments and student organizations. Political correctness has become the College’s ideology in daily dialogue. Conservatives have generally been shunned, laughed at or ignored.
One example of a flawed political ideal is evident with Saddam Hussein and Iraq. […]
The next elections for federal offices are approaching quickly and our neighbors in Pennsylvania will once again experience competitive races for President and U.S. Senate, reinforcing the Keystone State’s reputation as a political battleground.
While new candidates are starting to emerge and incumbents are deciding whether or not to run again, U. […]
The current political, social, cultural and international environment is one of such complexity, such importance, that it is deserving of every individual’s undivided attention.
The events of Sept. 11 have had a profound effect on American diplomacy, specifically in two areas. […]
Never go into a relationship thinking it is going to be a fling or a short-term deal. If you think that, you’re wasting your time. And that’s the only important information in this article. You can stop reading now.
Lately, I’ve been finding out that people are becoming single or, conversely, going into a relationship. […]
I love getting hate mail. The best part of my (pathetic) week is flipping to the letters section of The Signal to see if I’ve pissed anybody off. If so, I know that I’ve been doing my job.
Of all the things I’ve encountered at college, the apathy of students is the most frustrating. […]
At the domestic level, one of the most significant training and recruitment centers for leftist activism against the war in Iraq can be found on the campuses of American universities.
Student organizations, as well as professors, in hotbeds of political activism, such as University of California at Berkeley, Smith College in Massachusetts and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have challenged the Bush administration over its uncompromising resolve requiring Saddam Hussein to comply with U. […]
It’s become cool to hate on the French, hasn’t it?
Humor Web sites have “The French Art of Surrendering” desktop wallpaper for download, sporting a classic shot of Hitler in front of the Eiffel Tower, among others. Certain restaurants are dropping the “French” from their fries, calling them “freedom fries” or other similarly saccharine displays of “patriotism. […]
Although the strife within Israel has been overshadowed in the last couple of months due to media focus on Iraq, I predict that certain factors will cause issues involving Israel to surface in the near future. Groups on both sides, Zionist and anti-Zionist, will relate the conflict with Iraq to their own views on Israel. […]
