    @psclentz – I will, thank you. It wasn’t his first choice. He studied engineering but with the economy tanking, he couldn’t find work on graduation without “five years’ experience” so he took this job with the state like his dad had done. He doesn’t like it, but is busting his tail to get into management (his college minor). He’s the sort of guy who makes a girl like me proud.

    Just like any obnoxious child, ignore its antics and it will stop after awhile.

    I disagree. While I find her personal views revolting at times, I loved the Harry Potter stories and find nothing in them to shun. There are none of us perfect, not one. I would have a very slim list of literature to enjoy if I judged every book by the philosophies of its author. Sadly, most staunch conservatives can’t write worth a darn. I’ll stick to loving my books and wanting not a heck of a lot to do with many of their creators.

    If I were that kid’s momma and I saw that paper, I’d be MRS Resource Officer when she came home from school!

    My husband deals with inmates all night long. You are given ONE direct order and expected to obey it. If you choose to disobey that direct order, the results aren’t pleasant. They can encompass anything from a disciplinary report (permanent record stuff and you lose rec time outside your cell) up to and including being extracted from your cell. Imagine a cat being bathed. Yup, it’s about like that, except it’s a full-grown man trying to avoid at least three irritated and suited-up officers in riot gear yanking him off his @ss.

    If I were an inmate, I wouldn’t bother even thinking about civil disobedience.

    Perhaps it’s time for a schoolwide showing of Chris Rock’s cinematic masterpiece “How Not To Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police.”

    Because everyone is responsible for their own actions. The excuse “But they were doing (this/that/the other thing) never got anywhere with my folks. Nor should it have.

    I NEVER understood the “fun size” label. It’s smaller! How can that be fun???

    I had a stroke while driving. When I came to in the middle of a construction zone (after driving over the top of a huge pile of gravel and crash-landing down the other side AND having my passenger break her foot), I wished I had died. It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my entire life.

    Yup. I had a stroke while driving and went into a construction zone (unmanned at the time, thank goodness), totaled my car, and hardly remembered a thing. It was terrible.

    Oh, grow up.

    From the UCC website: “Possession, use, or threatened use of firearms (including but not limited to BB guns, air guns, water pistols, and paint guns) ammunition, explosives, dangerous chemicals, or any other objects as weapons on college property, except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations, is prohibited.”

    This does NOT include CCLs but rather refers to weapons utilized by police officers and other government agents. As a security officer licensed by the State of Oregon, I am currently not permitted to carry a weapon on duty EVEN THOUGH I have a concealed carry permit. I don’t know whether the 4 full-time security officers at UCC are permitted to use deadly force or not. I’m guessing no.

    You are absolutely right, Mr. Root (or as I’d like to call you, Resident Bad@ss – I think you’re amazing!) I’m a born and bred Oregonian with 2 concealed carry permits who can legally carry on an Oregon public college campus – BUT no one within the Oregon educational system wants me to know that. UCC actively told its students – AND published materials backing itself up – that carrying weapons or anything that could cause harm on campus was a violation of the student code.

    And that about sums it up.

    Please don’t remind me, East. I was in Queens when the Curse was broken and had the sad, sad news broken to me by a jeering Giants fan. Ugh.

    Yup, it was. They also preserved Ancient Greek and Roman texts, while the Catholics wanted to burn them.

    I think awarding her the Presidential Medal of Freedom would not be an inappropriate gesture.

    I hate hate hate hate hate snakes.
