National Signing Day 2016 seemed to be a great one for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. Strong was able to transform a recruiting class ranked about 32nd nationally to about the 11th ranked class in a single day.

It can happen to anyone. You’re a good driver. You have a clean record. Yet the one time you creep up over the speed limit or roll through a stop sign, the blue and reds come on. You’ve gotten yourself a ticket.

One of the most common myths I regularly hear is the accusation that capitalism has been the downfall of the nation and economy. Most people are aware that Libertarians have a very capitalistic stance on economics and emphasize the need for a free market. The thing is, as Ron Paul has repeated for years, we haven’t had capitalism. It’s one of the most bitter ironies when a Sanders supporter raves about the evil capitalistic corporations being responsible for our economic problems, only to reason with conservatives that, “we already have socialism.” But they are correct. Social Security, income tax brackets, welfare and so many government institutions are inherently socialist in their nature.

Nine ladies from our Beta Sigma Phi chapter were having dinner at Garcia’s Tuesday evening. Our waitress came to our table and told us our meals were paid for by this kind gentleman who was also dining there. We were so surprised. So “many thanks” to you, if by chance you are reading this. What a generous man! All of us decided to go out and pay it forward to someone else.
