    SCOTUS

    this is coming from someone who stated she didn't even have to read one of Kavanaugh's previous decisions before deciding she opposed his nomination. It's a joke. I wonder how many previous decisions of Merrick Garland Turtle "sorry excuse of a human being" McConnell read.
  2. I have several nieces and nephews in the CH-UH school system and all are doing well. If you have active, involved parents, there is no reason kids won't thrive in the school system. As far as crime - it happens everywhere. I lived in Hudson when I was in high school and kids would go into cars and garages and steal stuff.
  3. I hate Julie. I've never used the Amtrak 800 number. At least not in this century. What problems are you having with the website? You might consider https://www.wanderu.com/en-us/ I've been thinking about taking a train trip - maybe to Montana, although prob not this year at this point. Does that website have premium cabins on Amtrak? I can't find it. It looks like that website's fare is $35 cheaper than on Amtrak site for the coach seat and was wondering about premium. EDIT: check that, when clicking the fare, it ends up showing same price as Amtrak website.

    Political Correctness

    How about we stop comparing sacrifices? I think we'd all agree Pat Tillman made the ultimate sacrifice. Does that mean anyone else's sacrifices aren't real? People make sacrifices everyday. Maybe a parent sacrificed their career to raise a disabled kid. Would you say - "THAT'S NOT A SACRIFICE! PAT TILLMAN SACRIFICED - YOU MADE A CHOICE LOSER!" ??
  5. ^^ Who is Cedar Lee Development? Obviously just an LLC, but I'm curious who is behind it. I heard it might be Snavely. Also, I'm not a pessimist, but ZERO chance this breaks ground in January. ZERO ZERO ZERO.

    Racism

    Comrade Ram - in this entire thread, have you ever posted a story about a white person being racist towards a person of color?

    Racism

    I'm not fully aware of the situation, but didn't he apologize, or am I wrong? Politically correct keyboard warrior mobs don't accept apologies. People who matter have accepted the apology, though - his teammates (many rushed to his defense, in fact), fans (what the standing ovation was actually about), and the general public. You can accept someone's apology, but at the same time not applaud them for it.

    Political Correctness

    We are both speaking on something we don't know, but if he did and the administration failed to do anything about it, sure shine some sunshine then all you want. By failing to report injustices, however you see them - and I'd venture to guess you think it was an injustice the way the GA treated that student, the prof is part of the problem, not the solution. And that problem is everyone on social media and blogs making big deals about incidents instead of ACTUALLY trying to understand the other sides point of view, which seems to be what you anti-pc people want to do. Sure, the GA refused the discuss with him, but maybe he could have gone to the administration and requested a meeting with all partied involved to resolve the issue?

    From the limited I read on this, it sounds like he should not have been fired. All I'm saying is how about reporting the person to the administration? If I was aware of someone being discriminated at work, wouldn't the proper response be to go to HR as opposed to blogging about it? I agree with jonoh, anti-pc is about being able to be discriminatory without having consequences. As I've said before, this thread is dumb. I assume this just means you think I am saying we can't discuss the subject. I'd be happy to discuss why anyone on here wants to be able to openly discriminate though.

    Political Correctness

    (1) I have no idea if such an entity even exists. If it does, I wouldn't consider it at all guaranteed that such a committee would actually have told the philosophy grad instructor to start allowing opposing viewpoints in her classroom. (2) Sunshine is often a much better disinfectant than behind-closed-doors bureaucracy. Not that there's no place for the latter, of course, but this is a matter of public concern simply because of how big a pattern it's become. It's part of a larger picture, not an isolated event in one philosophy class. This rings hollow simply because of the limitless excuses the PC crowd will make to treat those who don't subscribe to the "correct" thinking like crap. Firing someone for defending freedom of speech, and for defending the rights of a student to express Catholic beliefs on sexuality at an ostensibly Catholic university, falls pretty squarely into the category of "treating people like crap" to me, but I understand that it doesn't to you because in your mind, the prof deserved to be fired and the student deserved to be silenced, regardless of the law. Freedom of thought as long as we all think what you permit us to think. "Sunshine is often a much better disinfectant than behind-closed-doors bureaucracy." Sure, why use established protocols when we can just put some light on something?

    Political Correctness

    If Dr. McAdams really cared, I would assume there is a faculty conduct committee of some sort that he could have brought this matter to instead of blogging about it. If he really cared, wouldn't the proper way to ensure that people can discuss gay rights be to bring it to the attention of the administration?

    SCOTUS

    EXAMPLE: You clearly when Obama won as that is all you can seem to talk about.

    SCOTUS

    Well you should have called him "Chicago" back then. That would have cleared everything up. Kinda makes Trump your fault, doesn't it? Did call him Chicago back...too bad everyone fell for his smooth and slick act as well as Oprah's ''guidance''... and Michelle Robinson, and her long-term Chicago crony family. True products of Chicago's machine...complete with Barry's Senate seat up for sale...lol. Of course the Obamas didn't return to the mess known as Chicago today, its usefulness to them is over...now it's on to Netflix! Anyway, Trump has 2 SCOTUS so far, and RBG is on deck...start making the popcorn for the show. FELL FOR HIS "DUMB SLICK ACT"?? Do you mean his dumb slick act of compassion for people and actually caring about the country and not himself?? Was Obama perfect? Absolutely not. But he was certainly light years ahead of narcissistic Trump. Your posts today are idiotic, trollish, and offensive. Go somewhere else.
  14. This is just a sexy quote. I doubt this is about a specific company. Also, no offense to Adams Lynch, but I believe they specialize in multi-family properties, typically in the suburbs. To my knowledge, not exactly a company working with large corporate players.
