No Vancies

Just received an invitation to my high school reunion in October.  I think I'll go this year as an astronaut.  Everyone will be too old and senile to know I'm not.  Should be fun.

You like humans name calling other humans in your politics? That's your level?  How about "Don the Con"?

If the law requires non conditioned public schools be closed for humane reasons, why have we not air conditioned our prisons?

Clinton foundation may be closing due to new revelations.  Stigma of Donald Trump being a former contributor has harmed its reputation world wide.

I intend to share  with you some of the great things that happen in my life.  Stay tuned. Waiting 71 years so far, surely something will come up eventually. 

Politicians making a big deal of who had access to Hillary .... kind of funny to me ?  YOU try accessing your Senator or Representative without money changing hands.  It rarely is going to happen unless you have television cameras with you.  It's how politics works in America.

Look he SAID that he knows more about ISIS than ANYONE. Even the generals.  Pretty remarkable person if he isn't being a lying Hillary.


Terrible golf played by me today.  When America WAS great these things were made of wood and one could set fire to them and they would actually burn.

University of Chicago Warns Students of Incoming Class That They Will Not Be Shielded From Opposing Views Or Given “Safe Spaces”

by jonathanturley
Unknown-2I have always been proud of my alma mater, The University of Chicago, and the education that I received in Hyde Park. However, that pride has been magnified this week with a letter sent to the class of 2020. As we have been discussing, various schools have eradicated free speech protections on campus in a national trend toward speech regulation. UChicago has decided to stand its ground and reaffirm its commitment to free speech on campus. The letter warns students that they will not shielded from views that upset them or given "safe spaces" on campus. In doing so, UChicago has recommitted itself to the very touchstone of education: the free and robust exchange of ideas.

The Brief: Travis County GOP Looks to Replace Chairman

Travis County Republican Party Chairman-elect Robert Morrow

The Big Conversation

Top GOP officials say the chairman of the Travis County Republican Party, Robert Morrow, ended his tenure on his own after choosing to enter the race for U.S. president as a write-in candidate.
Morrow won the county chairman election in March, earning 54 percent of the vote and unseating incumbent James Dickey. However, he's been at the center of controversy since taking office. He's accused many politicians of adultery, murder and pedophilia, and he attended Donald Trump's Tuesday campaign rally in Austin with a jester hat and large sign that read, "Trump is a Child Rapist."
As the Tribune's Patrick Svitek reports, party leaders have made previous attempts to limit Morrow's power due to his controversial remarks. In a statement, state GOP Chairman Tom Mechler said Morrow "became ineligible to hold the office of Travis County Republican Chair," despite claims from Morrow himself that "they don’t have the grounds to [oust him.]"
A news conference is being held Friday morning where the party is expected to decide on Morrow's fate. The chairman, however, doesn't seem willing to step down quietly. Morrow told the Tribune, “if other people attempt to pull a coup like this, there will be trouble. The bottom line is the Texas voters, the Republican Party, have spoken."

The Brief: UT Students Wage Sex Toy Protest on First Day of Class

by Alex Samuels and John Reynolds | Aug. 25, 2016
Cocks Not Glocks members pass out 4,000 dildos before their rally against newly-enacted campus carry laws at UT -Austin on August 23, 2016.

The Big Conversation

Students and activists at the University of Texas at Austin voiced their displeasure with the campus carry law that went into effect earlier this month across the state by strapping sex toys to their backpacks and grabbing suggestively themed T-shirts.
As the San Antonio Express-News’ Kelsey Bradshaw put it, “It was an interesting first day of class, to say the least.”
A protest organizer told the Austin American-Statesman that if the demonstration seemed over the top, that was the intent. Ana L√≥pez said the demonstration was created to flout obscenity laws while protesting legalizing handguns on campus.
The protests, though, seemed to be getting little serious pushback. University administrators were quick to describe the protest as protected political speech. And a student concealed carry group also supported the protesters’ free speech rights, touting a “gun/dildo alliance.”

“Stop White People”: Resident Advisers Create Controversial Course

by jonathanturley
UnknownThere is a controversy at State University of New York (SUNY) that is reminiscent of our recent discussion about the exclusion of white students in a housing advertisement at Claremont. The SUNY controversyconcerns a course put together by Resident Advisors Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, entitled “#StopWhitePeople2K16." Once again, the controversy raises the question of equal treatment at universities since SUNY would presumably react aggressively at RAs holding a course entitled "#StopBlackPeople2K16."
