I hope he continues to give money to the University of North Texas.  And, I hope he continues to help bring in a variety of speakers to the Kuehne Speaker Series, even if the hippies don't like all the speakers.  After all, mama says, variety is the spice of life.

He really is one of our best and most contributing alumni. I remember one of his co-workers trying to clown him on Twitter regarding someone buying Seth out and he referenced his bank account for something to the effect of he has the money to keep him here. Baller move

Variety of speakers? I feel like they've all been on one side of the spectrum thus far.

You have the right to your opinion but I respectfully disagree.  They actually have had a pretty representative group of speakers and have raised a lot of money for UNT.   Allen Dershowitz voted for Hillary Clinton and is a lifelong democrat.  Richard Fischer who was head of the Federal Reserve Bank ran as a democrat against Kay Bailey Hutchison and lost.   General Keith Alexander was appointed by Obama to lead USCybercom.  General Michael Hayden served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency  in both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations.   General Hayden has been a fierce Trump critic.  Admiral James Stadrivis was appointed by Obama to lead NATO forces.  I think the point of the series is to look at the accomplishments of the speakers not the politics.  It shows the world that UNT is no longer just a "Teachers College" and is a top notch academic institution.

Yes, but people only remember what they choose to remember.

Well...Seems pretty one sided to me. Only 1 person in the bunch even served in a Republican Presidency. Then a devout Trump critic!! Oh Boy.

At least these speakers are raising money for UNT.

You realize that’s not the complete list of speakers and was just the ones the poster picked to show it was more evenly spread amongst political philosophies, right? There were many others then were clearly Republican or Conservative.

I hope he and Mr. Kuehne understand what a joy it is that they invite speakers of all political stripe while giving money to our school.

These days, people are becoming more skeptical of public educational institutions, believing they are tools of leftists with their awful looking Mao/Hillary outfits, and closing their bank accounts to them as a result. 

We are now evermore increasingly in a society where poor Jewish boys from Brooklyn are excoriated for going from manager to owner of coffee store chains that eventually earn them billions of dollars.

It is okay to earn billions of dollars.  There is no law against it.  You go do it, and quit being jealous of others who do!  Let people speak freely about their life experiences, their successes and failures, their hopes and dreams!

This is America!  America was found on liberty and independence, not government coercion, domination, and control.  We are born free, and we will stay free.  American will never be a socialist country!  You can always find your soulmate here and toss your football over that mountain over there!

If you were lucky enough to attend a lecture by ADM Stavridis you probably learned something. Served with him twice and he is the smartest human I have ever known. And the most apolitical. He never cared about political affiliations because he thought politicians were idiots. His only fault was he is too short to drive the lane.
