said. At 6:30 p.m., police responded to the 3500 block of Park Heights
Ave. and found a male suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was
transported to a hospital, where he died from his injuries. No other
information was immediately.

16 Yes, this will spread. But the next Chancellor or President is likely to be ready for it and will say "F off, I'm not quitting. You will have to fire me" opening the door to the airing of lots of dirty laundry in litigation.

Of course, all they need to do is just order the campus police to investigate all allegations of racist behavior. That will either a) bring forth evidence that some of this stuff is made up or b) bring additional lawsuits as those investigated take exception to being persecuted contrary to the first amendment.

I would guess the endowments won't "dry up." A lot of the non-gubmint money that goes to education comes from wealthy SJWs and foundations run by libs and ultra-libs.

The board should reconsider simply because it would be the right thing to do, but it's clear that being "right" or "moral" or "ethical" doesn't mean shit these days.

Own a Vizio Smart TV? Its watching you

The tracking, which Vizio calls "Smart Interactivity", is turned on by default for the more than 10 million Smart TVs that the company has sold. Customers who want to escape it have to opt-out.

Vizios technology works by analyzing the shows youre watching, whether on traditional television or streaming Internet services such as Netflix. Vizio determines the date, time, channel of programs, as well as whether you watched them live or recorded. The viewing patterns are then connected your IP address.

Cable TV companies and video rental companies are prohibited by law from selling information about the viewing habits of their customers. However, Vizio says that those laws, the Video Privacy Protection Act and cable subscriber protections, dont apply to its business.

28 Some of the kids in both the Missouri and Princeton videos are exhibiting signs of mental illness. Oppositional defiance, mood disorders, probably bi-polar or early schizophrenia, really a whole litany of problems. If you have ever seen this type of behavior in young adults you know what I mean. Usually this type craps out and are sent home by schools for mistreating other students in dorms, etc. But these are enabled and are now terrorizing whole campuses.

______________

At least he won't be able to rationalize away his blatant lawlessness anymore by claiming that these actions are within his discretion as the executive. Two federal courts have now said, effectively, "no, they're not." If Obama continues to ignore the courts and flaunt his contempt for the law and the constitutional limits on his power, he risks provoking a backlash from the public.

David Wasserman, Cooks House editor, shifted the race from likely Republican to lean Republican on Friday, criticizing Loves performance beginning with her first race in 2012, which she narrowly lost.

92 A good associate of mine is involved in IT on a college campus. Most of his endeavors are in reducing cost. Getting rid of big iron and migrating toward cloud based solutions. If most of your computer resources are used for the couple weeks around registration and semester change then your hardware has to handle that load, and limp along hardly used the rest of the year. Both Microsoft and Amazon are fiercely competing for this business on hundreds of campuses across the country. Big, big dollars.

So that's just the backstory to the Missouri president resigning. His 30 year employment history was at IBM and Novell, two tech firms. Most likely he saw his mission as finding tech solutions to the ever increasing cost of college. Then he becomes embroiled in the childish whining of delusional adolescents.

Can't say I blame him for taking a walk.

NYT: ARAB ALLIES VANISH FROM ANTI-ISIS AIR WAR

Arab allies have largely abandoned the U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Iraq and Syria as America gets ready to escalate airstrikes against the jihadist group, reports The New York Times (NYT).

Western allies such as Australia and France have also limited their role in the offensive against ISIS, noted the Times:

...

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have reportedly shifted the focus of their military air assets on their battle against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. Jordan has followed suit, reacting to the brutal execution of one of its pilots by ISIS and in a show of solidarity with their Saudi ally.

For every dollar spent on food stamps, $2 in revenue is generated for the country (Nancy Pelosi swears to this, so it must be true).

HYPOCRISY ALERT: PALIN-TRASHER NICOLLE WALLACE BLASTS 'THE VIEW' HOSTS FOR INSULTING CARLY FIORINA

Talk about hypocrisy.

Nicolle Wallace, the habitual Sarah Palin-trasher, criticized the hosts of the The View on Monday for trashing GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, saying nobody wants to see women smear other women.

"I don't think anyone wants to see women do a takedown of other women," Wallace reportedly said on Monday's Morning Joe on MSNBC. "To me this isn't these women at their best."


She, she's in conflict. She's been told to Fight the War on Women (for Hillary). It HAS to be weaved into every word the liberal media say. So, what's a little hypocrisy and lies? Means nothing to them.

is connected to an activist organization
and the organization tracks back to Barack Obama

and is connected to other events of political unrest.

White House hopefuls now have seven days to claim the 12 minutes and 5 seconds of free NBC air time after Donald Trumps hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. NBC stations posted the FCC-required notice, triggering that week-long window.

Which of them don't?

Really, even groups on the absolutely far Maoist and Stalinist hard left like the RCP and "International ANSWER" have very, very short linkages between their top people and Prince Chooming.

I tend to figure that instead of the shadowy personage being a big cheese in a nongovernmental radical outfit, what you were seeing there was actually an Obama administration official visiting the protest on the Q.T., someone currently in the federal government whom they had to smuggle incognito in and out of their aggressively defended camp's "parameter".

Cozy: Canadian News Mag Puts Smiling Terrorist On the Cover

Our neighbors to the north decided to pay homage to a self-professed murdering Al-Qaeda terrorist by slapping his picture on the front of Maclean's magazine -- which is the Canadian equivalent to putting a smiling Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan on the cover of Newsweek.

Omar Khadr stands between two women; Rinelle Harper, an aboriginal woman who became the symbol for racist violence against aboriginal women; and Amanda Lindhout, a waitress turned journalist who was kidnapped by Muslim terrorists and tortured.

Talk about awkward -- the rape and torture victim of a Muslim terrorist sitting next to an admitted Al Qaeda terrorist and murderer. Yet, there Omar Khadr stands on the cover page, nicely dressed and sporting a flashy grin he almost seems normal, some would say even handsome..if it weren't for the "murdering terrorist" part, but you wouldn't know that because Maclean's just "happened" to downplay that little part of his story.

160 Interesting article in WaPo on the resignation speech at Mizzou. It turns out that free speech is really chock full of evil dog whistle words that White people use casually but purposely to keep the Black man down. Also Conservatives hijacked the Civil Rights movement and pretended it was about equal rights which was a lie because they hated Martin Luther King and by turning the issue inside out they can pretend to believe in equality and still keep the Black man down. Also society is collapsing and it is going to get worse because Justice.

Donald Trump Signs Online Petition Calling for CNN to Fire Ana Navarro

The petition, which was begun by Natalie Olivia on the change.org website, begins:

We demand CNN immediately fire so-called "Republican strategist" Ana Navarro based on the falsification of her credentials, her lack of any particular expertise on political matters and her obvious bias toward presidential flame-out Jeb Bush, as well as her general stupidity.

Should [ corporation president ] Jeff Zucker and CNN ignore this petition, the next step will be civil disobedience at various CNN bureaus and orchestrated verbal confrontation with CNN on-air talent.

167 "The lesbian is a child psychologist."

In the SF Bay Area, there was a nasty scandal and court case regarding one of the most eminent and highly reputed child psychiatrists in the region. A fellow with top notch credentials.

The guy was described by former patients as having been in reality a very aggressive and manipulative homosexual pedophile, indulging his tastes under color of medical authority. And of course when patients later tried to have this monster investigated, he could dismiss them to authorities as "unstable" and "disturbed".

Remember, one thing about people in the professional psych community is that they by definition spend a lot of time closeted privately with their patients. Opportunities by the bad ones to misconduct themselves are constant.

Finally a politician with the guts to protect Christmas from baristas!!! Go Donald!!

If y'all remember, when he first started his campaign he mentioned how he didn't like that shops and businesses were not putting out Christmas decorations anymore, so this isn't bandwagoning, he's been on this issue for a long time.

Having a "transgender" kid is now what all the cool people do -- Warren Beatty, Cher, Angelina Jolie, etc., all have "transgender" kids, so you should too! It's like having granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in your kitchen. It's a "must have" when you buy a house, and "transgender" is a must-have when you get a kid. Like somebody said above, kids are not people to a lot of these lefty loons; they're status accessories, like an expensive designer purse or the latest on-trend shoes.

Always has been. And it always strikes me as stupidity: the person they're trying to slam gets some additional traction and sympathy based solely on provably senseless attacks. It can easily result in a reaction 180-degrees from the intended result.

IMO, Carson can easily insert foot in mouth without false statements from the media. But when he's being slammed by the MFM, a lot of people overlook the wackdoodle stuff he actually says.

202 I think if you actually read a transcript, you'll find that Trump isn't piling on. He is questioning Carson's judgment etc. IF the stories are true. He couches his comments in that manner and skirts the gotcha trap by the journos.

However I'm sure if you read the Journos account of what he's saying they'll have him saying all kinds of negative things.

But then when did you suddenly start believing what liberal Journos tell you?

Trumps not defending him but he's not piling on only commenting and speculating on what it might mean if the stories are true and a few other gems like that.

Go find the transcript and read what he actually says and not what some liberal reporter tells you he said.

Republican Debate #4: Do We Have a 'Final Four'?
by Roger L Simon

And then there were twelve. Arrivederci, George Pataki, Lindsey Graham and Jim Gilmore (at least for now).

Only eight front-running candidates are going to be on the main stage according to the rules of the Fox Business presidential debate Tuesday night, and four will participate in the undercard. Nevertheless, no matter how many are on that stage in Milwaukee, I'm almost certain we are already down to a "Final Four." And it's pretty obvious who they are: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. (Sentimentally, I wish there were still hope for Carly, because I like her. But there isn't. If this were the Oscars, we could give her a special humanitarian award or something.)

It was over. But it wasn't, was it? They soon turned on each other, accusing one another of reactionary tendencies, resulting in the Reign Of Terror. It is never over for the Left - they just keep on lopping heads until there's too few to resist when the grown-ups return. Let the campus progs eat their own. Let them burn it all down.

319 "So radical progressives have taken over:



the academy (from kindergarten to university)

all major media

all government bureaucracy (local, state, national)

most non-profits (NGOs, charitable foundations, etc.)

most major corporations

many churches (the so-called "mainline" churches)
"

Take over of the military in-progress. They still have a way to go but with the sexual assault "crisis", end of DATD, new diversity panels being formed, etc... there is no doubt where it is headed.

But someone did me a solid and got her convinced that I'm right, and that person is Ted Koppel. He wrote a book about how crappy our energy infrastructure is, and hearing it from him was all it took for her to understand how tenuous our hold on 21st century civilization really is.

The answer is relatively easy.

First, ask around the prepper community to find out who has the ultimate water system installed in their home.

When the shit hits the fan, go over and blow them away with a shotgun, take over the house, sell the guy's wife and daughter into sexual slavery and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

374 Survivialism.

When Milady and I moved our family from uptown Chicago back to the old family ranch two decades ago, we had in mind the advantages for surviving some societal breakdown. Which breakdown has come a little faster than we figured, but not a lot faster.

Great-grampaw bought this place (a piece of it, anyway) from the Cherokee to whom it had been alloted in order to drill for oil. He "only" found natural gas, and capped that off. I have a clue where that pipe might be, but haven't been able to search for it.

Grampaw built a ginormous concrete water tower on ground level, which filled the swimming pool where I spent a lot of my youth. After Dad died, the executors destroyed the pool, but even before that Dad had the big water tower destroyed and built a smaller metal one on stilts. That one was retired when County water reached us, and it's sat empty and unused for nearly half a century. It's still standing, and might be able to be cleaned up and revived, but it stands there like a big target. Anyway, the line from the artesian well out in the pasture decayed decades ago and now the well is only used to water the cattle in dry times. Supposed to be plentiful and good water; there's photos of cars lined up to it back in the dry days of the '30s.

We'd figured there's always either sun or wind here, so for a little supplemental energy, some solar and a windmill might keep the pumps going when the grid fails, but never got any of that done.

I could go on and on with the litany of planned-to-but-didn't ideas we had. We're not even 30/30 - 30 miles from the nearest city of 30K - more like 7/40.

But the kids all grew up and moved to the urbs, anyway, so what future is there to protect?

At least we have good line-of-sight for approaching zombies. And well-armed neighbors. And it's pretty here. :/

And the art thread is up.

On the one hand, private biz should be able to do what they want.
OTOH the only reason they ditched the Christmas tree, and businesses don't use the word Christmas anymore, is because if SJW's and their "I'm offended " campaigns.
So if we go by Alinsky rules we should be maling them live up to their own rules. Christians are right to go on counter "I'm offended" campaigns. If they don't then they are basically okay with being marginalized.

Also, for those who do not know how to make coffee. There is that, too.

You don't have it, so you borrow 50$ from 2 people.
You buy it, then give 1$ to each of the others and keep 1$ for yourself, so now you owe 49$ to each.
Now: 49+49=98 plus your 1 = 99, so where's the last dollar?
-----

The dollar isn't supposed to be added to make 100 in the first place.

If you gave 1$ each back, you'd owe 49$ each, and you are left with one dollar change can go towards the 98$ you need to pay back.

If you subtract that last dollar and give each of them 0.50$, you now owe 97$ total, the cost of the whatever.

What good is diversity? Did our society become better? Or worse when it became more "tolerant". I am really questioning the whole movement.

Tolerance it appears is a one-way proposition. That hardly seems fair. If people tend to self segregate, this is why.
