    Descriptive info: UNC-Chapel Hill Student Government Passes Resolution Supporting In-State Tuition for Illegals.. 5/29/2013 4:38:10 PM.. Posted by Adam Tragone.. by Ben Smith.. Several weeks ago, the UNC Chapel Hill Student Congress passed a resolution supporting in-state tuition for undocumented students who have graduated from a high school from North Carolina.. The resolution, sponsored by Speaker Pro-Tempore John Guzek, calls on the school to support state House Bill 904, which would make the act law statewide.. During the debate on the measure, only one member of Student Congress spoke in opposition to the resolution.. Rep.. Peter McClelland said the resolution was supporting a "bill to nowhere that would not pass the conservative-dominated NC House.. " He went to admonish the other members claiming that resolutions passed by student legislatures "have considerable weight and we should not be diluting its importance by supporting a bill that will be dead on arrival.. ".. Supporters of the bill dismissed McClelland's claim and continued on with the legislative debate.. Supporters discussed the hardship of growing up as undocumented students in North Carolina.. They discussed their own personal achievements thanks to the many opportunities afforded to them by living in the United States.. Many speakers, undocumented themselves, broke down into tears by the end of their speeches.. After the testimony from the undocumented students, the student representatives debated the bill.. The debate mostly consisted of members praising the bravery of the speakers for coming forward.. Some members even tried to fight off their own emotions  ...   the United States shall not be eligible on the basis of residence within a State (or a political subdivision) for any postsecondary education benefit unless a citizen or national of the United States is eligible for such a benefit (in no less an amount, duration, and scope) without regard to whether the citizen or national is such a resident.. (b) Effective date:.. This section shall apply to benefits provided on or after July 1, 1998.. In addition, despite many of the others who have gone through the long, expensive process of becoming naturalized, all the student needs to do is apply to a university.. Knowing the liberal atmosphere on many campuses, their acceptance is all but guaranteed.. This will only encourage more illegal immigration.. The resolution should not have been passed and simply gives weight and the prestige of UNC Chapel Hill behind a failed and doomed bill.. Ben is a Sarah T.. Hermann Intern Scholar at Young America's Foundation this summer.. He is also a rising senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who is doubling majoring in Political Science and History with an American concentration.. He is the Executive-Vice President of his conservative club on campus.. Nice article, Ben!.. Posted by Brendan on 05/30/2013.. Great article.. You should be proud of your accomplishments and reporting.. Will love to hear about the internship in DC.. go get um.. Posted by Catherine on 05/30/2013.. Why not offer them food stamps too?..

    Descriptive info: Debunking the Living Wagers.. 5/29/2013 3:54:31 PM.. by Anthony Hadford.. On a sunny spring afternoon this past semester, I noticed a crowd gathering outside Thomas Jefferson's famous Rotunda.. Curious, I approached the group and saw "Living Wage" signs and t-shirts, calling for an increase in the salaries of University of Virginia employees.. While I had heard about this movement I did not fully understand their demands so I asked a bystander wearing the "living wage" t-shirt if he could tell me more about why they are protesting.. "We want to raise the wage of workers" he replied.. This.. seemed.. to be a good cause, why not pay all employees at least $13 an hour for their work? So I further questioned the young man, "Where would the University get the funds to increase wages? Do all of the employees earn $13 for the work the engage in? Is it possible that the University would lay off workers in order to adjust for higher wages? " The student chuckled and replied, "I really don't know man, I am just here for the protest.. " This is a common occurrence for a movement that lacks substance: create a cause centered on a sensitive issue to appeal to the emotions of supporters, but do not fully educate the supporters about the issue.. Another interesting, yet ironic view of movements such as the living wage is peacefulness.. It is ironic that they claim to engage in "peaceful protests" and dialogues because they often display behavior that entirely contradicts this.. After I spoke with the first protester, I wanted to learn more about the living wage movement so I asked another member of their group about the cause.. He replied similarly as the other young man, so I asked the same questions.. He thought for a moment and then asked me if I support capitalism.. I replied that capitalism may have some flaws but it is currently the best mechanism for a free economy.. He then swore at me.. It is not uncommon for some of these protesters to become upset and hostile towards those who question their cause.. The use of ad hominem attacks is commonly a symptom of the fear of not knowing how to respond to an argument of reason.. I learned an important lesson while observing the living wage movement that day.. While many of the groups associated with the liberal agenda claim to be tolerant and peaceful, they are anything but peaceful..  ...   ignorant do-gooders stuck their nose and ultimately their laws in the middle of the process and hurt many, many Americans.. you see, there used to be so many entry level jobs for poorly educated, un-skilled youngster that all those who wished to work could work: as grocery baggers, stocking boys, unloaders at lumber yards, grounds maintenance and landscapers, ditch diggers, newspaper deliverers, bus boys, dish washers, waiters, construction site workers, gas station attendants and on it goes.. That was a time when an employer, seeing a kid with the gumption ( and that was all they had) to come ask for a job deserved an opportuniy to get a foot in the door at a very low wage that was comminserate with their skills.. Once the kid started work, REGARDLESS OF THE WAGE, they learned invaluable life skills - how to show up on time, accountability to co-workers and customers and bosses, gratitude, a work ethic, self-esteem on pay day, how to dress appropriately for the task at hand, how those who worked hardest were often rewarded and those who didn t were let go.. Well now days, thanks to minnimum wage and living wage idiots, our youth no longer have that all important beginning because an employer cannot justify the expense of anywhere from $7.. 15 - $16.. 00 /hour wage mandates , depending upon the location ,for a complete neophyte ,so instead they hire somebody with experience and the kids no longer find entry level work.. now , perhaps you understand why so many more poor, black youths turn to drug dealing and crime as their alternative for pure survival since liberal, uninformed do-gooders have made it impossible for them to get their first legitimate job.. Posted by oneamongmanypatriot on 05/31/2013.. Good work.. These living wage folks don t understand that if one is able to artificially inflate one groups wages e.. g.. university employees, that this is actually harmful to other groups that do not get the their wages inflated.. Bottom line, if you do like your job, or your pay, you should be looking for something better, not protesting.. There are lots of people that would love to have your job.. Posted by DilloTank on 05/31/2013.. Good job Anthony.. Somebody has to pay for the artificially higher wage and that is nyou the taxpayer.. Posted by george on 06/01/2013..

    Descriptive info: Starting a YAF Chapter Can Change Your Life.. 5/28/2013 4:06:36 PM.. Here are testimonials from some of our Young Americans for Freedom student leaders writing about all the incredible opportunities they have been afforded since they started a YAF chapter at their school.. Spencer Brown, Regent University:.. Both Young America's Foundation and Young Americans for Freedom have given me incredible opportunities this past year.. I started my freshman year at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.. As someone who had been moderately involved in conservative politics and activism in high school, I was looking for new opportunities to continue working to advance conservative principles.. A friend and fellow activist recommended YAF to me, and I decided to get involved.. There wasn't a Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Regent University, so I filed the appropriate paperwork with the University, and got started with YAF-a move I do not regret.. After starting my chapter, the great people at YAF's headquarters were incredibly helpful with any questions I had, or activism initiatives I wanted to hold on campus.. They first helped with the.. 9/11 Never Forget.. Project by providing my group and me with American flags, "Never Forget" pins, and flyers to raise awareness of a number of other YAF opportunities.. In February, I attended my first YAF conference, the "Great Beginnings" seminar, at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California.. I, along with a few dozen other young conservative activists, heard from leaders in the Conservative Movement, and had the opportunity to visit President Reagan's Rancho del Cielo.. I learned new ways to recruit students, raise awareness of important issues, and gave me new tools to use in my role as chair of my own chapter.. Whether you're a high school or a college student, and regardless of your amount of experience in the Conservative Movement, Young America's Foundation and Young Americans for Freedom can help you make a difference in your community, give you incredible opportunities to meet heroes of the conservative movement, and become an important voice for conservatism on your campus and in your community.. Kathleen D'Urso, Texas Christian University:.. Since becoming involved with the Young America's Foundation last year, I never could have imagined the amount of opportunities and privileges that would come my way.. After coming across the YAF website and seeing the important role the Foundation has in the Conservative Movement, I was immediately drawn to the many student opportunities.. I read about several peers who were making a difference on their campuses and in their communities, inspiring me to bring a YAF chapter to my campus at Texas Christian University.. Starting a YAF chapter at my school has brought upon many career benefits, including internships and leadership scholarships.. However, while YAF has allowed me to immensely further my career goals in just one year, the greatest gain that has come from my time with YAF are the friendships and connections I have made, as well as the ability to engage with, and make a difference in my community.. This past April, I had the privilege of attending the Club 100 Retreat, where I met leaders within the Foundation, Conservative Movement and fellow YAF chairmen.. From listening to and hanging out with speakers like Alex Marlow of Breitbart.. com and Ann McElhinney, producer of the film.. , to horseback riding in the California mountains with fellow chairmen and getting a personal tour of the Reagan Ranch, the opportunity to attend YAF conferences like Club 100 is an experience that I will never forget.. YAF holds many conferences throughout the year that are not only a blast to attend, but also are a great way to make lifelong connections and friendships.. In addition to the many benefits that come along with attending conferences, getting involved with YAF has allowed me to interact with, and make a meaningful difference in my community.. My favorite YAF campus initiative is the.. Although our chapter was just starting out and had no funding, YAF went above and beyond to help us successfully execute the event.. Planting 2,977 flags on campus representing each person killed in the terrorist attacks brought awareness on campus and in the Dallas/Fort Worth area about the importance of remembering 9/11 in our history.. The local CBS affiliate and the Fort Worth Star Telegram covered the event.. Although attending conferences and being a campus activist are certainly highlights of my time with YAF, the benefits do not end there.. Students who become involved with YAF will find that all the opportunities go far beyond what they could ever expect, and in ways that are unique to each person.. I hope to remain involved with YAF even after graduation and am excited for future students thinking about having a role in the Conservative Movement through YAF.. Kristopher Del Campo, DePaul University:.. Being the founding chairman of a YAF chapter has been both an amazing experience and a blessing for me.. From attending conferences put on by Young America's Foundation and exploring the Reagan Ranch, my devotion to the conservative movement has increased day by day.. Without YAF's help to promote conservative values to college students around the nation, many students wouldn't be afforded both sides of the ideological argument.. Young America's Foundation and the Reagan Ranch Center have help educate our nation's youth to bring the fight of conservatism to their high school  ...   2695 on 08/04/2013..

    Descriptive info: Liberals' Lack of Civility Dooms Discourse Among Youth.. 5/24/2013 2:51:21 PM.. by Gabriella Morongiello.. I recently traveled to Washington with some immigration policy reformers.. For three days, she and I trekked all over Capitol Hill discussing the controversial immigration reform bill with legislative aides and members of Congress.. Responses were varied: some listened intently as we expressed concern, while others simply nodded their heads apathetically.. However, none of these responses compared to the reaction of a young woman in the hotel elevator who caught site of the "Stop Illegal Immigration" pin I wore proudly on my blouse.. During our short ride, I had become the recipient of a distasteful stare and murmur of disapproval.. Although the icing on the cake was her unwarranted smear.. "Racist," she muttered as she exited the elevator.. This type of cowardly attack on my political views is something I have grown accustomed to as my encounters with the left are frequent.. Liberals tend to make little secret of their distaste for my conservative ideology.. I've been labeled a close-minded bigot and sexist.. I have even been branded "naive" by a professor in the presence of a filled lecture hall.. But racist? That was a first.. Having spent hours debating government spending, immigration reform and Obamacare, I've noticed, with few exceptions, that my liberal friends offer opinions derived from emotion and hyperbole.. "You oppose Obamacare? You must not care about poor people.. " "You think global warming is a sham? You people who believe in creationism just reject science.. These are just a few of the ignorant and reactive arguments I have heard from my peers.. They use them because they are effective, because it is much easier to utilize emotion in an argument than evidence and reason.. They use them because they put me, a young conservative, on the defensive.. Rather than having an informed debate rooted in logic, I am put on the defensive, allowing them time to search their brains for more platitudes, bumper sticker phraseology and incendiary labels; anything, but actual facts to back up their argument.. It is difficult to be a young conservative, because it requires one to develop a sound and fully vindicated argument.. Supporting an argument with relevant facts and sources takes memorization, research and confidence.. It is much easier to argue for big government as the solution to all of society's inequities than to avail yourself to hours of YouTube lectures with economist Milton Friedman, the archived writings of our forefathers and the Constitution, or to study historical data that now delineate the failures of Johnson's Great Society and FDR's New Deal.. In her book.. Slander.. , Ann Coulter writes, "If it were true that conservatives were racist, sexist, homophobic, fascist, stupid, inflexible, angry, and self-righteous, shouldn't their arguments be easy to deconstruct?".. A recent example of liberals' emotionality versus conservative's reasoned approach became evident when the tragedy of Newtown gripped our television talk shows.. Liberals screamed for more gun control, universal background checks and a total ban on assault weapons.. Yet, when I posed the simplest question to a progressive friend he was flummoxed and unable to combat simple reason.. I asked him the following:.. "In front of my home there is a sign stating 'Nothing inside is worth dying for.. ' The words are written above a human silhouette with bullet holes through the cranium and chest cavity.. Next door, there is a liberal with a sign on his mailbox saying 'Gun free zone.. ' Wait a minute," I stopped.. I continued, "He doesn't really have that sign on his mailbox even though he lobbied our city council to put that sign at the entrance to our city.. Why do you think that is?".. Gabriella is an intern this summer at the National Journalism Center and attends Oregon State University.. Posted by on 05/24/2013.. How did you come to the conclusion that this young woman is a liberal? Correct me if I am wrong, but that fact that she called you a racist has does not prove or pinpoint the fact that she is a liberal.. It is clear that this woman was making a wrong assumption about you, but you too are doing the very same thing.. Just some food for thought.. Gabriella, I beleive that the liberal mind is very different than the one you posess.. I have worked within higher education since obtaining my Ph.. D in 1967 and have made a transition of my thinking, an evolution when I came to American campus to complete economics studies.. I was initially so shocked to hear of the other graduate students and professors defending Castro, stalin.. Marx etc.. I couldn t beleive my ears.. Well, it has only become worse over all of these years as a full professor at a prestigious university.. I see the liberal mind as still a child s mind.. One attached to instant gratification, emotionally charged and very self-centered.. Good job I hope you become a strong advocate for free market principals as the writer that you are aspiring to be.. Posted by Judith Zevileskin on 05/24/2013.. Bravo Prof.. Z.. Ms.. Gabiella: Keep up the good work.. You have already figured out the thought process of the Libtard mind.. Be prepared in your travels and don t be surprised when you find the most interesting rocks that the Looney Left can hide under.. As you will see, ironically, they are those who have seemingly benefited most from our economic system yet they demand that the rest of us pay for it all.. Posted by paul G.. on 05/25/2013.. How did you come to the conclusion that this young woman is a liberal? Because only a liberal would come to the conclusion that illegal has something to do with race.. Posted by DilloTank on 05/26/2013.. Keep on truckin !!! When a liberal call you a racist, you know you are doing the right thing.. Or, that you have one the argument.. In summary of Gabriella s article: I really hate it when EVERY liberal use generalizations, emotions, and arguments without facts because conservatives NEVER use those tactics on liberals.. This makes conservatives BETTER than liberals, because the ONLY facts that liberals posses are the ones that are generalized, emotion-based and void of facts.. Gabriella, your blatant hypocrisy is comical at least.. Every thing you said about liberals, including all the comments that followed your post, were utterly generalized, based on emotions (since you encountered a rude woman at an elevator), and completely void of facts.. Where is your evidence that liberals choose to use emotion-based attacks against conservatives because they are afraid to use reasoning and research? Many of your liberal peers have also devoted much of their life to studying, researching, and immersing themselves into different political issues.. They might not have come to same conclusions as you, and may end up with different opinions, but that does not mean that every liberal is scared of evidence and reason.. Yes, there are always those who will use emotionally-charged attacks as a shortcut, but that occurs on both sides of that issue.. Your failure to understand that, as well as your failure to accept the fact that conservatives are not the only ones who research their issues, only proves that maybe you re the one that needs to learn a lesson on crude generalizations and fact-less attacks against those who think differently than you.. Posted by on 05/29/2013.. IT IS SO, SO TELLING THAT THE ONE WHO IS SO ANGRY AT THIS AUTHOR WAS TOO MUCH OF A COWARD TO POST THEIR IDENTITY! Case closed.. Liberals are confused by the facts as they have a funny way of interfering with their childish emotions and ever present dream of Utopia.. Posted by charlamain on 05/30/2013.. LOL thank you so much charlamain! You re only further proving my  ...   rightfully so, that demonizing those with liberal ideological stances does nothing to promote civil discourse, which is what this blog writer was allegedly advocating for.. And of course she is not responsible for the comments underneath her article, but by pointing to those comments, I was able to show Gabriella how emotion-based, rude, immature and fact-less comments is not some phenomenon that only happens with liberals.. Read your comment that you posted on May 30, Charlamain.. It s a comment one would expect from a hyper-emotional, angry, ranting school child.. Finally, I can give you a thousand other experiences I had, both personally, and from watching public events, such as the convention you were referring to, where both liberals AND conservatives were victims to hyperbole and incendiary labels.. For example, there are still hundreds and thousands of organized groups, primary in the South, who identify as conservative that unapologeticaly promote hatred towards all African Americans and other non-white, non-Christian minority groups because they fear that these groups are damaging the traditional values of America.. So although I know that racism is still unfortunately occurring in this country, I ll be damned if you ever hear me make a generalized, fact-less statement that all conservatives are racist , because I know that of course this isn t true.. THOSE conservatives happen to be racist, but it will be utterly ignorant of me to make a generalized statement that all conservatives are racist.. And that s the difference between you and I - despite the fact that whatever personal experiences you encountered with liberals does not account for every liberal in this country, it just won t matter, you will ALWAYS believe it to be a God given truth that those that think differently than you are just plain cowardly , confused by facts childish and hate-mongering.. And even though I m probably half your age, I truly feel sorry for you.. It s hard to live a life consumed by hate for others.. Good luck and may peace be with you.. Dearest Meg, my little peaceful warrior.. The author didn t claim at any point in her piece that all liberals are devoid of fact based reasoning.. READ IT AGAIN.. She says that among her PEERS, with whom she has political discourse, she is shut down while attempting to debate using fact , logic and reason by their tendency towards ugly hyperbole.. She never says ALL LIBERALS , she is speaking of those with whom she has interacted as peers.. She does not deserve some self righteous rant , therefore, from you nor anybody else about generalizations or having your point proven or her hypocrisy.. I would love to suggest a book called The Republican brain written by a self described elitist Liberal, his words, not angry , mean old mine.. This is written by a man with an advanced degree who spends a couple of hundred pages making the exact opposite claim that this girl is.. The difference.. he did over generalize for 11 chapters and when he tried to establish a scientific basis for why conservatives arrive at different conclusions than liberals when presented with the same data.. the experiment failed and he essentially wrapped up the book by stating, I know what I know about the inability of the conservative to follow logic and reason regardless of the data so I m going to design a different experiment to prove it.. Go read that book and write to that author with the same observations you made here as then they will actually apply.. With age , comes wisdom sweet pea.. Posted by charlamain on 05/31/2013.. Sigh.. here you go again, Charlamain, with your random rants on random pieces of utterly pointless, irrelevant, piece of information and facts.. How can I say this politely and respectfully? I really don t care about this random book by this random author that you devoted 10 sentences of your life to.. because I ALREADY KNOW that books like this exist by liberals.. I m starting to believe that you re not really at the wise old age you claim to be, because even a 12-year-old would understand this by now.. OF COURSE there are books out there, like the one you ranted about, by liberals.. The point I have been making is that, even though I am (supposedly) half your age, I have the maturity, education, and enlightenment to understand that those types of books have been written by both liberals AND conservatives.. The problem here is people like you, and Gabriella, who try to address the problem of false information, distorted scientific data, uncivil discourse, etc, by creating it into a one-political-party-only phenomenon, when in reality, it is a HUMAN phenomenon.. I mean, look at what you just did again on your last comment.. You literally went on the most random rant/tangent about this irrelevant book to further prove your point that IT S JUST LIBERALS DOING IT/THEY ARE EVIIL! How much hate do you have buried inside your chest to feel the need to let all that loose? Here, let me try explaining it in a much more elementary way: Tommy is a red-headed kid at school and he steals an apple.. The teacher wants to teach kids that stealing is bad, so she starts preaching about how red-headed kids are the root of the problem.. This makes all the kids at school hate the red head, and instead of fixing the problem, all the teacher accomplished was fueling hatred and animosity at her school.. In reality, the problem is stealing, not red heads.. It just so happens that in this particular case, it was done by a red-head; in another school it might have been done by a blonde.. In this scenario, you would be the school teacher: yelling a lot, pointing fingers, but at the end, accomplishing nothing.. Do you get it now, Miss Old Wise Charlamain? Or let me guess, are you going to respond by posting another comment about some random article you found on the internet from some crazy liberal.. Or maybe another convention, or another book? Whatever makes you sleep softly and soundly, sweetheart.. I understand that with some people, once you hit a certain age, you just refuse to learn, so I ll let you dwell blissfully in your sweet ignorance.. And one last thing before I stop coming to this website (I am an independent voter, interested in both liberal and conservative opinions, but I have come to learn that this website offers absolutely no intellectual stimulation): the title of this article is Liberals Lack of Civility Dooms Discourse Among Youth , and there is a rude, offensive, and completely immature picture accompanying this article.. So.. what were you saying about this article having no intents on generalizing? Exactly.. Posted by on 06/03/2013.. I ve been following, with great glee, the back and forth between you two angry broads, Charlamain and Meg ( btw.. the peaceful warrrior comment was funny charlamain) that s a great book , haven t met many people who ve read it.. Regardless, just wanted to let our young moderate, meg, know the old platitude that indpemdants and moderates seem to ignore but I ve found in my 72 years to be more and more valid.. one who stands for nothing , will fall for anything I was a starry eyed bleeding heart as a young man until I started a business in 1969 and began to deal with regulators, taxes, employees, leases, inventory, banks etc.. etc.. then I woke up and evolved into a hardcore Libertarian which puts me a little to the right of atilla the hun and just as free!..

    Descriptive info: 2nd Amendment Banquet: A Smashing Success.. 5/24/2013 10:05:16 AM.. by Nick James.. When the.. Clemson Young Americans for Freedom.. chapter decided to hold the Second Amendment Banquet, I never thought that the event would lead to national press coverage and hate mail delivered straight to my personal inbox on a Sunday night.. During the planning stages, I thought that our club would have the support of both our student body, our faculty and staff as well as the community.. What I learned, after taking the event public, was exactly how controversial the gun debate is, and how many people refuse to listen to what you have to say before deciding their stance on the issue.. The.. basic premise of the event.. was to host a dinner banquet for supporters of the Second Amendment which included a keynote speech from a member of the South Carolina General Assembly.. To cap off the evening we decided to give away a gift certificate for a Mossberg 715t "assault style, modern sporting rifle.. " Before we had even gone public with the event, the story had leaked and I was contacted by Clemson administrators and was asked to have a meeting immediately.. Coincidently, on the day I was contacted, a Clemson student had been arrested for driving through campus while his personal firearm was in the glove box of his car.. After working with the administration at Clemson I had come to the realization that I could not simply give the gun to a banquet attendee.. While giving away a gun was not the primary purpose of our program, it was an important goal for my club from a marketing and community engagement standpoint.. We felt that the best way to show and encourage support for the Second Amendment was to give one lucky citizen a great firearm they can use to protect their home, compete with, or even hunt with.. We refused to compromise and remove this aspect of our event.. After some careful planning and legal considerations, we decided we would move forward with  ...   I was able to focus on the execution of our event.. I am glad to say our event went off without a hitch.. We had an overflow of students and were forced to turn some prospective attendees away due to fire code requirements.. We ended up with not one but three great speakers, two of them being from the SC General Assembly (Rep.. Mike Pitts and Sen.. Lee Bright).. Our third speaker was Richard Belmore, a South Carolina law enforcement weapons instructor with decades of expert experience in firearm safety.. Putting on this banquet has been the best experience of my college career to date.. Being able to get 70 people together on a rainy Friday night in the name of freedom brings a satisfaction like no other.. I also realized how lucky I am to have the support of Young America's Foundation.. Their guidance is priceless.. Finally, this event made me proud to be a Clemson student.. I am forever grateful for the work done by the General Counsel's office.. While they did not represent me or my interest, they did spend lots of time answering my questions and responding to complaints from those on the left who neglected to do their own research as to the legality of my chapter's event.. Nick James is the chairman of Clemson Young Americans for Freedom.. Thanks a lot for the blog post.. Posted by 34038 on 06/06/2013.. 8PFbeC I really liked your article post..
