Yeah, you do strike me as being on par with the bovine intellect.

As a civil liberties organization, they are likely aware of the situation and weighing the costs and potential benefits of litigation as well as sub-legal administrative remedies. So what? There’s a real world out there, a world which apparently you have only a vague, spiteful appreciation for. Keep that up and let me know how it works for you.

I’ve studied property law for a long time now, and you have not, Vaman. You shouldn’t tell people you’re about to educate them and then misinform them.

We allow non-black students to join the Black Law Students Association at my law school. There have been no problems because we are reasonable human beings who appreciate all forms of student involvement. Additionally, typecasting by skin color and appearance falls apart when you have biracial parents, which might give rise to students who don’t fit into your petty understanding of racial classes, but who nonetheless identify as asian or another race. Sure it might be strange to consider admitting a non-believer into a christian club, but doesn’t that represent an opportunity for them to learn more about Christianity? There are myriad reasons your comment is silly and I don’t feel like typing them down. Overall, you need to realize and embrace the fact that people are people. How anti-christian is that?

Usually when you push something to its logical end you then begin using logic. Here, however, we see merely a sad attempt to distort logic, and perhaps a total lack of understanding of what the original underlying logic was.

Oops, your ignorance is showing. There are a specific set of protected classes which have been identified by the Supreme Court to stem from our Constitution (something you probably tell people you believe in). Their protections have been codified into positive law through the following acts, which merely effectuate the protections demanded by the 14th. The Supreme Court is the highest authority on the interpretation of our Constitution. They are far, far more thoughtful in their interpretations that you, who merely interpret based on what you would prefer the answer to be. Here are the classes and their relevant statutes. Thanks Wiki.
Race – Federal: Civil Rights Act of 1964
Color – Federal: Civil Rights Act of 1964
Religion – Federal: Civil Rights Act of 1964
National origin – Federal: Civil Rights Act of 1964
Age (40 and over) – Federal: Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967
Sex – Federal: Equal Pay Act of 1963 & Civil Rights Act of 1964
Familial status – Federal: Civil Rights Act of 1968 Title VIII
Disability status – Federal: Vocational Rehabilitation and Other Rehabilitation Services of 1973 & Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
Veteran status – Federal Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974
Genetic information – Federal: Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act

There is a video called “what if I’m wrong” by a user called A5Hellcat on youtube, and he addresses your confusion with patience and tact, which I lack.

@Woody- Yeah, they’re spreading hate by disallowing exclusion from groups based on belief. That would require you to construe inclusion as a hateful motive, which I’m sure you do. Problem is people assume you take strong medication when you argue say like that.

Also, in re: Starman, there ARE Christian clubs at almost every single university, so does your rationale imply they must not be Marxist. Oops.

Your local mosque is not a public university.

All the comments saying the Democrats will politicize it are ironic because they are politicizing it on a political discussion board, but it’s OK, because they’re right, as is easily seen on burntheblaze.com
Hey lets troll them commies. How can you burn something already ablaze? Hmmm, Im a gonna go troll fish a bit. Time to burn BurntheBlaze. Oh and I won't be to nice. Gloves off. Yeehah!
Seeing as how Janet Napolitano said that the Dept of Homeland Security said it had to worry about soldiers coming home from Iraq becoming terrorists, etc, I would say the left is 6 months to 12 months ahead of us on politicizing it.
@ walkabout... If only Chris had a pair of scissors with him !!!
This incident is a good example of the need for mental health treatment. His mother knew he needed help so why didn't veteran groups there get in touch with him and help him. There is much political talk from the democrats about how the veterans are taken care of, but I think it might all talk and no action. They need to follow up with the vets and their families. Here, again, don't blame the guns, blame the lack of mental health care.

Your comment is ironic because it represents the very intolerance which is so common in Iran.

Yeah dude, there should be a whole rack of weapons on the bus. That way when some nutjob smiles and pulls and fires before the driver even realizes he’s dead he can stock up on extra guns and ammo. For people who purport to know so much about firearms you all seem to neglect the reality that you can’t prevent a surprise attack by a determined attacker. If you arm bus drivers, and someone wants to get at some kids on the bus, they just have to feign innocence until they have the chance to execute their attack. The only way a bus driver would be able to prevent such a surprise is if he drew and brandished at every person who approached the bus. But does that include kids? Your arguments spiral quickly into the impractical. That’s why the best approach is to be careful who we give guns to, and that necessitates not only better mental health services but a better background check network with access to such information among other information. I don’t check replies FYI.

Dude it’s part of a huge conspiracy.
January 30, 2013 at 10:57am
I’m sure the media’s exponential increase in coverage capacity had nothing to do with it.
January 30, 2013 at 10:51am
No, there should be less laws so that people who want to get on buses and shoot the drivers can do so. This is the land of the free.
January 30, 2013 at 10:49am
Unreasonable hyperextension of logic is not compelling because it constitutes a red herring (a logical fallacy). Real clever though that one isn’t played out by now.
January 30, 2013 at 10:48am
Who cares, bus drivers should have guns so when they get shot without warning the shooter gets another. In fact, the kid should have had a glock. I’m buying my kid a glock this afternoon and he’s only five!

Oops, yer dumb. This has been a major issue for a long time. The male-dominated administration is constantly sweeping it under the rug and trying to cover it up. Stop bickering about the sources and go read the DOD report yourself. In fact, here’s a copy.
