PRAGER UNIVERSITY: The Least Diverse Place in America

"We teach what isn’t taught." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Charlie Kirk

"College is a place where they want everyone to look different, but think exactly the same.  It's like a freaking cult...People expressing different points of view on an issue.  At most colleges today, that's a dangerous, revolutionary idea, if that different point of view is not on the Left." – C.K.


"Diversity, as practiced on your typical college campus divides, not unites people.  And diversity of thought, the free exchange of ideas, you know what college is actually supposed to be about.  Not happening...And God forbid if a Conservative speaker should show up on campus." – C.K.

National Medal of Honor Day

The United States Congress has designated March 25th of each year as NATIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR DAY, a day dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients. (Public Law 101-564) Conceived in the State of Washington, this holiday should be one of our most revered. Unfortunately all too many Americans are not even aware of its existence.

WHY MARCH 25th?

The date of March 25th was chosen to highlight this special day because it was on March 25 (1863) that the first Medals of Honor were presented...to six members of Andrews' Raiders. If you haven't read the story you can follow...[this link] THE FIRST PRESENTATION to read about that historic day.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

National Medal of Honor day is celebrated in some communities, however for the most part the occasion comes and goes with little notice. As a patriotic American there are a few things YOU can do to commemorate this day:

- FLY YOUR FLAG with pride and patriotism on this day.

- REMEMBER OUR HEROES. As a gesture of your appreciation, why not take just a few moments in the week prior to National Medal of Honor Day to mail a "Thank You" card to one of our living Medal of Honor recipients. You can find a list of the living as well as information on writing to them among the pages of this site.

- INFORM YOUR LOCAL MEDIA. Most newspapers aren't even aware that this special day exists. Why not tip your local media to the occasion. Before you do, check out our database for Medal of Honor recipients from your city and state as well as any who might be buried in your city. This information can give your media a "local angle" that can increase the probability that they will consider doing a story to remind Americans of our heroes.

- Consider doing something in your local schools, or even on a civic level, if there is a Medal of Honor recipient living near your location. Visit our site on SCHOOL IDEAS for more information on school assemblies.

- If there is a Medal of Honor recipient buried in your home town, get a school class, scout troop, or other youth organization to "adopt a grave site". You can read in our SCHOOL IDEAS pages how one school in Pueblo has used just such a program as a part of their Social Studies program.

***You should also notice I post Medal of Honor Recipients a couple times per week on the right-hand margin of this blog.

PRAGER UNIVERSITY: There is No Gender Wage Gap

"Give us five-minutes and we’ll give you a semester." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Christina Hoff Sommers

"The small wage gape, that does exist, has nothing to do with paying women less, let alone with sexism.  It has to do with differences in individual career choices, that men and women make...Those who claim that for the same work women earn 77-cents on the dollar compared to men, on the other hand, are not merely bad at math, but at telling the truth." – C.H.S.



"If for the same work women only make 77-cents for every dollar a man makes, why don't businesses hire only women?" - C.H.S.
