Congratulations Noway!. We just become part of some “snowflake’s” art project this semester. Always willing to help out a fellow art student! MFA grads will one day save the country.

Darn, the libs now have safe spaces, cry closets, stuffed animals and free gummy bears. Not bad for $50,000 a year tuition and sky high state income taxes! And its a good thing they ban any conservative speakers on campus too! What are we raising here?! This sure sounds like the Marine Corps! Can you store your Pink hats in the closet too? It is disrespectful to be wearing those hats when you are taking a knew before a ball game! Speaking of coming out of the closets, are the closets equipped with transgender bathrooms too? It is hard to… Read more »

The student in question goes to the University of Utah in Salt Lake. It’s one of the most conservative state schools in the country. Karl Rove, Bob Bennet and Huntsman family are alumni. It’s in state tuition is under $9400. It’s a dry campus. It was the first state school that allowed concealed carry. How much in-liberal can a college be? Not to mention, ITS A CLASS ART PROJECT installed in the research library. You want to rail against art projects and art students, go ahead and aim your stereotypes at me. I have two degrees, and 3 minors from… Read more »

You are being played by some BFA or MA student’s piece of performance art. I wonder if this is a verbal final or written. If this was one of my submissions, I know how I would write the market implications and cultural iconography in the thesis. The point it was located in a research library already sets my methodology standard.

Some of y’all may be laughing, but some students/young adults have genuine stress, and emotions that you can’t actually comprehend because you haven’t lived their lives. So while you’re allowed to be judgmental, your condescending mockery also shows ignorance and a lack of even an attempt at empathy. Some folks have mental health issues. Period. Don’t mock them. Recognize them, and be part of the solution instead of pretty much bullying them, making the problem worse. It could be a generational thing, but there was a time in my lifetime when it wasn’t cool for a man (or a father)… Read more »

Georgia is preparing to execute another man. In researching the case, I found this quote. Those who decry “respectability politics” should take note. Stacey Abrams, this means you. “Civility is more than good manners.   It is an essential ingredient in an effective adversarial legal system such as ours.   The absence of civility would produce a system of justice that would be out of control and impossible to manage:  normal disputes would be unnecessarily laced with anger and discord;  citizens would become disrespectful of the rights of others;  corporations would become irresponsible in conducting their business;  governments would become… Read more »

“I’m frankly a little surprised at how emboldened he has felt. He apparently isn’t too worried about the election.” — Senator. John Cornyn, R-TX, the ­second-ranking Republican senator, speaking of Senator John Tester, D-MT for expressing concerns about Trump’s nominee to run the VA.

No mention of Johnny Isakson concerns, who co-signed a letter with Tester, about the nominee by Cornyn, natch, since Johnny has an R after his name. At some point, when GOP leadership is nearly exclusively hacks, the logical presumption is Republican politician = hack.
