San Francisco Chronicle columnist Token Conservative blogger

Hey Hey Ho Ho Student Protests Got To Go — Student activists who were protesting UC tuition hikes didn't exactly do their cause proud Wednesday. They blocked press, regents and other individuals (some just wanted to get into the gym at the UCSF Mission Bay campus). A few times, as I tried to get into the building, students circled a

Tuition hikes at the University of Compensation — Brown voted against the tuition raises because they violated a budget deal crafted in Sacramento that promised, in exchange for a tuition freeze, two annual 5 percent increases followed by two annual 4 percent increases to UC and CSU funding. Don’t raise tuition while state funding is rising because you’ll have to raise tuition when state funds decline.

Uber held the charm, but not the offensive — When Uber hired one-time Obama whisperer David Plouffe, CEO Travis Kalanick wrote, We are in the middle of a political campaign and it turns out the candidate is Uber. [...]

Is there no limit to college tuition hikes? — If you are about to apply to college or send your children to an institution of higher learning, please make sure not to miss the CNN documentary, "Ivory Tower," by Andrew Rossi which looks at why college is so expensive. With the nation shouldering more than $1 trillion in student-loa

Think Obamacare’s affordable? You’re stupid — that’s why even though the bill that they made is 90 percent health insurance coverage and 10 percent about cost control, all you ever hear people talk about is cost control.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein goes to war against Airbnb — Last month, DiFi wrote an Open Forum piece for The Chronicle urging Mayor Ed Lee to veto compromise legislation written by Supervisor David Chiu. Lee failed to heed Feinstein’s advice, and now she apparently is withholding her endorsement for his re-election. Living in stately Pacific Heights, Feinstein no doubt wants to keep trade out of her neighborhood.

Nancy Pelosi forgot about fact-checking — Comrade Carolyn Lochhead has an interesting blog about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi railing that reporters ask her about whether she should retire because he's a woman.

Obama has to work immigration to win immigration — President Obama has been dangling a promise to issue an executive order to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation before the end of the summer â€" the order would be so big, an aide boasted, that Republicans may try to impeach Obama.

Trigger anything but a thoughtful response — UCSB Professor Mireille Miller-Young accosted pro-life activists in March, commandeered a poster they were showing, destroyed it and got physical with protesters. The subject of my Tuesday column, Miller-Young pleaded no contest to theft and battery charges. She is serving three years of probation, 108 hours of community service and 10 hours of anger management.

UC’s latest free-speech lapse — The professor had just grabbed an antiabortion poster from the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust at the campus free-speech area. In August, Miller-Young apologized and pleaded no contest to theft and battery charges. What has the university done about this professor’s illegal and outrageous attempt to silence dissent?
