Column by Steve Seachman. Exclusive to STR Debunking some popular college mythology, counting the full extent of college welfare and recognizing the fatal flaw of mass-market teaching. Clearing the path for something better. Over the last couple of months, I’ve tried to provide some long-overdue explanations for the college mandate for most professional jobs, the scholarship game of shady...

Column by Steve Seachman. Exclusive to STR Everyone knows about the skyrocketing cost of college. We should also look at the antiquated and ineffective teaching methods they rely on—and develop a better alternative. According to most historians, the European Middle Ages were a period beginning in the 5th Century AD with the Fall of Rome and extending for the next eight or nine hundred...
College Alternatives, Part 1: Watch Out for 'Debt-Dealers' and the 'Scholarship' Game

Column by Steve Seachman. Exclusive to STR If someone waves a scholarship in your face to get a GREAT DEAL!!! . . . but only if you sign a bunch of fine print with long-term ramifications . . . maintain a healthy level of skepticism. Also beware of the false sense of security that comes along with the college package. In an age of warning labels on coffee lids and defensive medicine to avoid...

Column by Steve Seachman. Exclusive to STR To understand “how we got here” on the de facto mandate of a college degree for most professional jobs, some history is helpful. As it turns out, the “college experience” is not  and never was “market-driven” or “grass-roots” or anything of the sort. ​ Like any unrivaled...

Exclusive to STR    If ever there was a clear example of the welfare state’s self-destructive tendency, this perhaps ranks top on the list: giving food stamps to people no matter how fat.    With two-thirds of Americans overweight, obesity-related health spending at almost $150 billion per year, federal debt growing out of control and no one in Washington able to find...
Time for a 'Right-to-Know' About Government Polluters

S.E. Seachman 2005-08-14 16:00
Since 1987, thousands of American companies have been legally required to submit annual reports of their chemical releases to the air, land and water. These reports are mandated under the popular and quite successful 'right-to-know' program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, authorized by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-know Act (EPCRA) of 1986. Environmental activist...
Candidate Comparison - Quest for Power, 2004: No Difference

S.E. Seachman 2004-10-27 03:00
 Politicians and their allies in the major media like to talk of the allegedly vast differences in the two main candidates for president. One of the more far-reaching examples of this claim is from AOL News and Time Magazine. Their “decision guide” to help people “decide which candidate to vote for” crafts a list where one candidate “strongly opposes...
