“After 33 plus years teaching at Georgia State University, I retired from active service effective on Dec. 31, 2015.” * Is 2015 a typo? * Why not retire right now in protest? Where is this man’s convictions and honor? * If he is truly in fear, why would he subject himself to 6 months of deadly dread? * Could it be that he was going to retire anyway and chose Dec 31 to do so to maximize his taxpayer guaranteed extravagant pension payouts? CS Thachenkary is just another leftist academic afraid of chalk and the Bill of Rights. Even worse,… Read more »

That Town Hall article on NC’s HB2 actively made me dumber. The “no men in girl’s bathrooms argument” always fails to recognize three basic premises: 1) Sexual predators are going to go into a women’s restroom regardless of what the law says; 2) The rates of sexual assault committed against transgender individuals is much higher than their cisgender counterparts. 1 in 2 transgender individuals are sexually abused or assaulted at some point in their lives. Some estimates believe that 66% of transgender individuals will experience sexual abuse or assault. Trying to paint transgender individuals as the perpetrators of sexual assault… Read more »

Everybody knows that laws only fail to protect the innocent when they concern imposing restrictions on guns and carrying them.

Andrew, point one well taken. Strangely, I’ve seen several reports stating the real NC bathroom criminal problem allegedly was ‘STRAIGHT’ men, wearing dresses, going into women’s bathrooms for nefarious purposes. A second stretch was transgender men were doing all their gender surgery, etc. etc. just so they could go in women’s bathrooms for same sexual predator purposes. I really could not make this up. Despite the fact that no such cases were previously reported, and the infinitesimally small odds for this criminal demographic even existing, an emergency legislative session was called for HB 2. But while they were in session,… Read more »

Trump is just plain stupid. Punish women who might get abortions if it were made illegal? No way in hell he’d win a general now. That statement will be on an endless loop beginning today! And I thought the nasty insults would do him in…

As much as I’d like to think that, they’ve been saying that about everything he says. So far nothing that comes out of his mouth seems to have slowed him down any.

True but until now it’s just been insults to others running against him. And building the wall, defending the border and stricter background screening of Muslims entering the USA are wildly popular. But THIS, this targets an entire gender’s freedom. I don’t think I’ll be seeing a potential Trump woman supporter advocating for punishment for one of her own sisterhood. His bleating walk back of jailing the doctors was pretty pathetic. He’s done as far as actually being elected Prez.

Well, I think there are a handful of women who would want to punish other women but the fact is Trump is already very unpopular among women voters, including those of his own party. He can’t win the general election if it stays this way. So I don’t think his comment hurts him, really, but it certainly isn’t going to help him.

Awwww c’mon now, Jessica, “Georgia State professor whines about campus carry prospect” – Really?

This law is plain dumber than paste. I can tell you all firsthand – those that work on campus are far more at risk than students. GSU personnel are there everyday, year in, year out.

While MikeSilver may question the man, his origins, his politics, or even the veracity of his resolve, but for the love of reason, C.S.’s logic is impeccable.

Dumber than paste.

God. Guns. Gayz. Get it?

He’s a good professor too. If he and others around the country are leaving universities (and they are) due to campus carry laws then the campus carry laws are making our universities worse just to feed our John Wayne complex.

The FBI director himself will question Slick Hilly. Gotta love it! The vice is beginning to squeeze.

I 100% agree with the logic if women’s soccer creates more revenue than the men, they should get paid more. If this is upheld, we should end all affirmative action programs, and base all of it on merit. As I have said numerous times over the years, I am 100% against affirmative action, but I am 100 percent for upholding civil rights for all regardless to race, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

……..U.S. Women’s Soccer Doesn’t Deserve Equal Pay — They Deserve More

The proof is in U.S. Soccer’s own budget numbers…….
