    @ King

    You didn’t offend me. :) I was in a hurry for personal reasons, and in my haste my last comment may have come off a bit sharper than I intended.

    As for the 60′s and 70′s… There is a quote from the Bible, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” I have found this to be true. Even if said child out of his mouth rejects God, he still will operate according to the basic principles he has been taught. To say the protests didn’t ruin the generation… I think are you both correct and incorrect. Immoralities that are opened to the public do not affect the current generation… they are not the ones who will follow it. It is the generations to follow. I disagree profusely that we have not been affected. The man in the white house is proof enough.

    I wish I had more time to discuss this, but I’m afraid I do not.

    Sincerely, Good day :)

    Those students acted as such because that is what they are picking up from the professors. That is indoctrination. Those stories are piled on more, while piled on more. This isn’t a local phenomenon. It is widespread, with reports coming in from campuses across the U.S. If you really are someone who looks at things fairly, then you would not be dismissive of the facts. Instead, you bury your head in the sand, making yourself no different than those students.

    After all, you concluded we hate education.

    Good day

    That’s what is coming out of the universities, KingofPrydain. What challenge of beliefs took place?

    Those are courtesy of Campus Reform btw.

    ““I’m going to be honest with you, Alex. I never advocated for you. I never would have,” Brown said. “I would never represent you because, I couldn’t because, you directly conflict with my life. Period.”

    “For anyone on this Commission to represent you would be to represent racism, sexism, homophobia,” Brown said. “And clearly you just spent two hours of your time listening that this body would like to be an anti-racist institution. So what you seek should not come from here. At least not this body with these people.”

    “There will be no resolution written for your racism,” she continued. “It won’t happen. No one will support you. If you want to do this, whatever you call yourself, disrespecting, burning bridges, having no reason to create open dialogue, you’re going to continue to be the lone ranger, who from my perspective is threatened by black and brown people. So no. I will not advocate for you to get a gun to shoot me because you feel scared in the middle of the night when you see me in my black hoodie. I will not. I would not.”
    Ross told Campus Reform that he had been deemed a racist by his peers in the past because of his support of allowing those with appropriate permits to conceal carry on campus, but never to this extent.

    “I don’t know why they’re calling me racist, or a sexist, or a homophobe because none of those things have anything to deal with what I’m asking them to do,” he told Campus Reform, adding that his peers’ behavior at the meeting was “ch

    Student advocating for campus carry to student government: “I’ve been here for five weeks and I’ve talked to two of you” Ross told the Commission, which according to its website, has over 23 commissioners.

    “Sorry, I’m gonna have to interrupt you because you as a white male talking to me,” protested an unidentified member of the Commission midway through Ross’s remarks.

    “Seek out people who think differently than you instead of shutting them down as wrong,” Ross responded. “It’s extremely childish to call me names,” he said, but the name calling had just begun.

    Another student commissioner at K-College, said Ross was “disrespecting” people on the Commission as he was “talking to [another student] like that as a person of color when you’re coming from a white male privilege stance in life.”

    “And what’s interesting right now is that you actually can’t respond to me because your time is up,” a student identified as Vice President of the Commission Rian Brown said at the meeting. “And I know that’s going to be hard for you because you come from a place of such privilege that you felt it was okay to disrespect people of color in this room.”

    Members accused Ross of “racism,” “homophobia,” and “sexism,” and some even went so far as to accuse Ross’s pro-Second Amendment position of desiring to kill students in black hoodies.”

    “Parker (pro-abortion speaker) was perfectly amiable in his outward demeanor, but his manner of answering questions demonstrated extreme intolerance of pro-life activists,” Princeton student Zach Horton told Campus Reform. “Among the many softball questions, only one side really had the floor, barring our four questions [of opposing viewpoints].”

    Prior to the lecture, Princeton College Democrats sent an email to its members, obtained by Campus Reform, that ‘members of the College Republicans and Anscombe Society are planning on attending en masse and monopolizing the Q+A portion of the event with disrespectful questions… It would be great for some progressive students to be there and show our support for women’s reproductive freedoms and for Dr. Parker’s advocacy.”

  • [5] March 5, 2015 at 10:48am

    I think you misconclude.

    People here aren’t against education. It’s what the universities are calling an education. In addition, 10-20 years ago when those parents graduated, most of what was coming out of universities was still useful.

    There used to be this joke… “I’m giving him an education.” and the answer would be, “Education in what?” It is no longer a joke.

    And yet your analogy demonstrates the fallacy in the homosexual argument. Homosexuality is a behavior and absolutely CAN be imitated and/or learned. People cannot choose to be white simply because there are only black people around them. They can, however, choose homosexual behavior.

    The homosexual argument in establishing themselves as a class must rely on that they cannot choose, and they cannot change. There is no proof of this, and plenty to the contrary. Homosexuality easily falls under immoral, socially destructive behavior. When a person is inclined to a destructive behavior, his or her genetic inclination to that behavior is irrelevant. All people are not permitted to hit someone under the law. That law is distributed evenly regardless of personal inclination to anger. This is the true meaning of being treated equally.

    Homosexuality might not be illegal, as sexual relations in general are not illegal, but that does not in the least require that the populace disregard the blight on the general health and stability of the public that sexual promiscuity and deviancy generate.

    You should hear the whole quote. Really just hear the whole thing. Whoever wrote this article butchered Mr. Robertson’s speech, intentional or not.

    I’ll at least finish his quote, more or less. It is not verbatim. He said that you lose your religion, you lose your morality. You lose your morality, you lose the country.

    He pulled this from a quote from John Adams, which pretty much said just that.

    In the last shutdown the Republicans refused to sign a funding bill with language added by Democrats, so it was the Republican’s fault.

    This time, the Democrats refuse to sign a funding bill with language added by Republicans, so it is…. the Republican’s fault.

    You Republican Reps better stop cowering and go on the offensive, because it doesn’t matter what you do, the democrats and liberals will blame you. You are not playing in a game with fair rules, you are playing in a game in which there is a lord and master with minions following his bidding to make you lose. This is Hunger Games, and you better step up.

    … And many, many more actions that also follow the spirit of these grievances.

    No White House follow up on the IRS.
    Cover up on Benghazi
    Fast and Furious
    Trying to make the government shutdown as painful as possible by kicking people out of their homes, and shutting down parks and businesses.

    I’m sure there is more I am forgetting.

    “He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.” He has interfered and crossed over his power, including the jurisdiction of the DOJ.

    “He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.” Yet to be proven, but I’d believe it.

    “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substances.”

    “He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:” Gun control and U.N.

    “For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:” Letting 5 murderers go for a deserter.

    “For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:” Obamacare!

    “For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:” George Zimmerman

    “For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments” Change anyone?

    “For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.” Declaring illegals legal (by memo no less).

    Grievances against King George listed in the Declaration of Independence:

    “He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.” Declaring he (Obama) will veto any law that does not fall in line with what he wants.

    “He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.” Vote for this and then we’ll get to what you want… but never does.

    “He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.” He refuses to enact any laws unless we give up our representation, not in name, but in fact. Those not in step with him do not exist or have a voice. Half of Congress helps him.

    “He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.” Forcing government shutdown.

    “He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.” Now it is the exact opposite. He refuses to acknowledge America’s sovereignty.

    “my posts are always polite and logical.” Are they?

    ” Perhaps you should look in the mirror and repeat your advice.” (Impolite)

    “baseball tickets made someone “turn away” from being gay? LOL. I wonder if basketball tickets can make someone turn away from being black, or if football tickets can make someone turn away from being tall. LOL” (both illogical and impolite)

    “And I stay because the insults and rudeness makes me laugh.” (Impolite)

    “It always makes me happy when someone can’t respond to what I have to say, and resorts to childish name-calling!” (Impolite and childish)

    “Don’t get me wrong, I’m flattered at your interest, but I already have a boyfriend.” (Impolite)

    Now… I’m not saying that rudeness doesn’t beget rudeness, but always polite posts, yours are not. Frankly though, while I might not wonder how it is you have so much spare time, I have in the past wondered what sorrow drives you to be here day after day. Usually obsession needs a drive behind it. Hate is a powerful drive, and I see hate from you frequently.

    Not overly concerned with an answer, mind you. I care enough to pray for you, but obsess over you, no, not really. That’s between you and God.

    Godspeed

    I also wouldn’t have an issue with this project, PROVIDED it was done in the parameters the school says it was.

  • [5] February 1, 2015 at 3:41pm

    Ah, well, that is why people are angry with you.

    You see, your view tramples on the rights of American citizens. Your view essentially grants all illegal immigrants, who not legal citizens of this country, the right to tell the legal citizens of this country, through voting, federal protections, or as this article points out, giving birth to children on American soil, what to do, and how to use their taxes.

    There is nothing less American than that. Therefore, although we share many of the same values, we don’t share the one that actually matters, the right of the people to decide their future for themselves. I regret, but they don’t belong here. You deny the sovereignty of this nation. Therefore the nation denies you. We aren’t a free-for-all to be trifled with.

    I have housework. Godspeed.

    Mr. Prydain,

    I think the issue between our different schools of thought is that you (it seems) look to government to solve problems, while I look to people. When the government is kept local, that is the people. When it extends far and wide, that is bureaucracy.

    I thoroughly disagree on education being a reasonable “expectation.” First off, if you are illegal, you don’t have expectations. Illegals are not citizens of this country, and as such have no rights to any of its protections. Protections can be offered out of the goodwill of local people should they so chose, but that is a far cry from walking into the country and “expecting…” anything from it.

    Next, what the federal government pays for, the federal government controls. The last thing I want is the federal government having any control over my children’s education. My children get the most affordable education God granted on humanity, from their parents at home, because I do not dare trust the federal government funded schools to educate my children academically, morally, or socially. If my local area, headed by the elected school board, was able to control the schools here, perhaps I would find them qualified enough to educate my children.

    Therefore, at its core, I disagree with you and those in this article. If we could get that fundamental difference in culture across the aisle, maybe we could find the common ground to understand each other. I’d actually like that.

  • [7] February 1, 2015 at 1:52pm

    “I’m no troll” I’ll take your word for it. :)

    I just quoted in black and white the demand for our money. “Asking” for “affordable education” is the same thing. Do you realize that before the government took it over, the townships of America paid for the teachers and schoolbooks directly out of their own pocket? Now, instead, the government requires it out of our pocket, wastes half of it, and then hands the other half to the education boards for them to waste half of it before the kids benefit. I’m not blaming that on illegal immigrants themselves, but they are making the problem a hundred times worse.

    That is the second problem with the illegal immigrants. They come here to put us in the chains of the places they left. They do not understand our ways, our values. Part of the point of legal immigration is so they can learn something about that before we set them out as a voter and citizen of this country. Sure, we have the resources, when the extra government that most of the illegal citizens and their barely legal families keep voting for steps out of the way.

    Believe it or not, I am not callous to the plight of people who flee to here. I never said they couldn’t work hard either. But I also know that a society can’t just absorb mass amounts of people without a dime to rub, who aren’t even of the same culture, without problems. In a place like America, where we vote our future, this is actually even greater a problem.
