Even as the chorus of voices decrying that college campuses have not done enough to both address and prevent sexual violence continues to crescendo, there still somehow is this universal sense that college officials are going out of their way to turn a blind eye to these issues on our campuses.

Is it Good for America to Only do What's Good for Business?

Kathleen Reardon | Posted 05.14.2014 | Politics

Opponents to President Obama's efforts to put millions of dollars in the pockets of people who've been working overtime for no pay want you to worry about business again. Conservative business groups have responded with all-too-familiar claims of the harm Obama's plan will bring to their members. House Speaker John Boehner had this to say: "The president's policies are making it difficult for employers to expand employment. And until the president's policies get out of the way, employers are going to continue to sit on their hands." It's time to stop listening to endless repetition of the narrow-minded view that rules and laws should not be changed if they pose even a whiff of difficulty for business. More often than not, it's a bogus argument and a selfish one at that.
