    I have lived in or around the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia for most of my life. Both the city and the university are within sight of Mr. Jefferson’s Monticello. This hysteria is typical of this white hot bastion of liberal progressivism, and I feel certain Mr. Jefferson would be aghast at the behavior of his beloved UVa.

    So call me confused: if the idea is to acknowledge the problem, and the debate was the deliberate effort made to open a dialogue to acknowledge the problem and allow all the issues to be put on the table for all interested parties to “debate”, and the protesters shut down the debate because folks were “white” and had no business “debating” the problem, and since you cannot have a debate with only one side allowed to argue their position, well…then..ok…I’m confused?

    A few incidental facts: 2016-2017 costs for attending Occidental College
    1) Tuition $50,492.00
    2) Room and Board $14,460.00
    3) Required Fees $578.00
    Total $65,530 / $262,120.00 four years
    Since the little whiny babies are feeling so oppressed, perhaps they should leave the country, instead of wasting over a quarter of a million dollars on tuition for an education that will never prepare them for living in the real world.

    Like all bullies, he’s full of piss and vinegar when beating up someone who doesn’t fight back. The demeanor changes when the bully suffers a full metal beat down by someone who knows how to handle themselves.

    What would be an even happier ending to the story would be if the police officer who wiped the floor with his face is a female. That little tidbit would go over real well when he’s in general population.

    Just as dumb as an oak post!

    Let’s see…

    “Men in Black”, “Liberty and Tyranny”, “Ameritopia”, ” The Liberty Amendments”, “Plunder and Deceit”…you mean this kind of nonsense?

    Or, perhaps, this kind…John Locke, Edmund Burke, Charles Montesquieu, Alexis de Tocqueville? Hmm?

    Tim Tebow is a remarkable young man. He has his faith and his ministry, separate and distinct from the NFL, and should he survive and thrive with the Eagles and play the game he loves, then he has made the grade. And, if for some reason he doesn’t, he loses nothing, and continues to honor God and care for his fellow man.

    To lickspittle idiots like Mark Lamont Hill, all I can say is “if you don’t like the Eagles with Tim Tebow, go find another team.” And like “tankertoy” said the earlier comment: “Tebow draws people to the faith, and befuddles the godless into white-knuckled rage. Therefore, he’s good for football and America.”

    I am good with that!

    John 1776:

    You’re right. “The Return of the Archons.” During the day, everyone walked around like they were catatonic, and in the evening, they tear up the town during “the festival.”

    “We also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.” Hmmm…I wonder if the mayor would take the same position were it their business that was just smashed flat and looted?

    How do people like this get elected?

    Being forced by government, at any level, to “compensate” an employee with paid sick time, or a “living wage” based on an arbitrary determination of what a minimum wage should be, removes the employer from the decision-making process for their business.

    The business owner-as-employer assumes all of the risk of failure, but sees their reward (profit) forcibly reduced by law, whereas the employee, who shoulders none of the risk of failure, gains, with no attendant benefit to the employer. That is, there is a 50/50 chance that the employee will be sick and need to use the paid leave, but it is a 100% certainty that the employer is obligated the cover the costs of the new, higher wage or compensation.

    I believe that a well-conceived benefits package will attract and retain good employees, but the decision to compensate an employee should be left to the employer.

    You do the math!

    Mumia Abu-Jamal and Bill Ayers come to mind!

    Eventually, there will be penalties for so many infractions that the game will be unplayable!

    If it walks like an MSNBC host and it talks like an MSNBC host, then its probably Melissa Harris-Perry, or that little pustule Toure.

    You forgot your tampon earrings, dear!

    I watched the segment. Hoenig is right. Furthermore, there is nothing wrong with making historical references in context, and he never suggested we round up Muslims and put them in internment camps.

    Like Andrew Breitbart said “The truth isn’t mean. Its the truth!’

    I have a SIG Sauer P250 9mm with a full magazine of Hydra-Shok hollow points, plus one in the chamber, in my night stand. The pistol has low light Tritium sights on it, and without my glasses, I can still draw a sight picture within the fatal funnel of the hall and the bedroom door.

    The bug spray is on the back porch with the lawn and garden stuff!

    Sounds more like an attack than an incident!

    As an IT project manager and Windows systems and network administrator, I can say with reasonable certainty that the school’s firewall did NOT come out of the box configured to block sites by specific keywords or known URLs.

    Unlike home networking devices such as wireless routers and DSL or cable modems, enterprise-level networking is done with MANAGED devices…routers, switches, intrusion detection / prevention devices, etc. These devices are configured and deployed with some difficulty, insofar as an administrator would need to log into each device and set the parameters or upload a configuration file. All the settings on each device must work in unison with the settings on all the other devices on that local area network and wide area networks the school is tied into, or it will not work according to design.

    I don’t think the restricted access was a simple mistake. I suspect it was done deliberately!
