Why anyone would WANT actor Danny Glover to give a commencement speech to graduating students is beyond comprehension to me.

I can think of fewer bellyachers who annoy me more today.

But someone thought it was a great idea, because Glover addressed the graduating seniors during Utah State University's 123rd Commencement Ceremony.

He went on and on about global warming and climate change. You know, the usual liberal, the sky is falling scenarios.

Some also booed and ridiculed him for not putting his hand on his heart for the National Anthem.

What kids today need as they graduate is a good, firm, focused dose of INSPIRATION. A sense of SELF DETERMINATION.

The LAST THING they need is to feel any more the victim than they have been conditioned to feel through years of the education system and the messages from society.


Winston Churchill inspired his old school back in 1941 with the following, now famous commencement speech. Many consider it one of the shortest ever given. Here is the often quoted inspiration:

'Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.'

Not bad, huh? Where are those messages TODAY??

We need Churchill, not Chicken Little.
