You talk about imaginary apples.

It's a figure of speech...but I reckon you knew that and only want to be contentious.

Safe spaces as pointed above have largely gone exitinct.

Then why do we hear/read about them every day?

Trigger warnings are necessary because college is all about exposing people to ideas that they've been too sheltered to have learned about.

That depends; if you're talking about an exchange of ideas between students who are from diverse backgrounds, then yes. If you're talking about having to sit through some lecture by a professor who insists you have to think how he/she thinks, then not just no, but hell no.

Most leftists think churches should lose their tax-exempt status when they preach politics from the pulpit (well, "right" politics). I think something similar should happen when colleges allow their professors to use their lectern to advance their own political agenda. (Right OR Left...but we know it's mostly Left on our campuses today)

A college can't talk about rape or other traumatic events without giving survivors a chande to leave without having to go through it again. That is a trigger warning.

What does that even mean? If a rape victim needs to talk about it with someone, wouldn't it be better to talk to a professional therapist or even -gasp- their pastor? "Trigger warnings?" Another silly pet phrase you're using. "Trigger warnings" are in the same category as "safe spaces"...useless as teats on a boar hog. I'm glad there are more in your generation made of sterner stuff who don't need "safe spaces" or have to avoid "trigger words".

Lesbe the echo chamber and pick up a book.

"Lesbe"? A German lesbian? Is "echo chamber" your "phrase of the week"? Echo chambers don't exist solely on the right, you know. Go check out the comments under any article on ThinkProgress or Democratic Underground and come back and tell me differently.

I had to spend years and years getting indoctrinated everyday by having to sing that theocratic "Pledge of allegiance". Colleges are open for you to share your ideas and receive scrunity. You are proposing massive government intrusion into academia.

Indoctrinated? Hyperbole much? I also didn't realize there was a melody to the Pledge. Please, hum a few bars or link me to a YouTube video of someone singing it.

No one ever forced you to recite the Pledge; even if you happened to be patriotic and love your country but were an atheist, no one ever made you say "under God". When I played football, our coaches had us kneel and say a prayer, usually the 23rd Psalm. Being pretty much a heathen, I knelt, bowed my head to be respectful of my community and Christian team mates, but instead of praying, I thought about my blocking technique on 32 Trap X-Wing Motion Right. Sometimes I'd concentrate on that so much, I forgot where I was and my team and coaches looked at me funny when I realized the prayer was over and instead of saying "Amen", I jumped up, clapped my hands and yelled "Break!"

"... intrusion into academia" I already addressed that up above. I hate govt. intrusion into just about anything, but it's apparent we need some type of checks and balances on how our young people are being taught. (or "indoctrinated" to use your own term for it)

They were a bunch of well-educated wealthy elites who read Greek and Latin, philosophy, and thought the Bible was mostly bull. Yep, they certainly were.

To each point: some, but not all. Your stereotype is not only wrong, but egregiously so. Of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees.

Here are some quotes by some of the Founding Fathers and I will also include just who they are and what they did...because I'm pretty sure you probably don't know, considering your idiotic statement "of fact" about them. "Certainly were." -snicker-

"To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."

George Washington (1st U.S. President)

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."

John Adams (2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."

Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence)

"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."

John Hanc*ck (1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence)

"Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped."

Benjamin Franklin (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Unites States Constitution)

"And as it is our duty to extend our wishes to the happiness of the great family of man, I conceive that we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world that the rod of tyrants may be broken to pieces, and the oppressed made free again; that wars may cease in all the earth, and that the confusions that are and have been among nations may be overruled by promoting and speedily bringing on that holy and happy period when the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and all people everywhere willingly bow to the sceptre of Him who is Prince of Peace."

Samuel Adams (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Father of the American Revolution)

"A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest while we are building ideal monuments of Renown and Bliss here we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven."

James Madison (4th U.S. President)

"When we view the blessings with which our country has been favored, those which we now enjoy, and the means which we possess of handing them down unimpaired to our latest posterity, our attention is irresistibly drawn to the source from whence they flow. Let us then, unite in offering our most grateful acknowledgments for these blessings to the Divine Author of All Good."

James Monroe (5th U.S. President)

"The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made 'bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God' (Isaiah 52:10)."

John Quincy Adams (6th U.S. President)

"I do declare to the whole world that we believe the Scriptures to contain a declaration of the mind and will of God in and to those ages in which they were written; being given forth by the Holy Ghost moving in the hearts of holy men of God; that they ought also to be read, believed, and fulfilled in our day; being used for reproof and instruction, that the man of God may be perfect. They are a declaration and testimony of heavenly things themselves, and, as such, we carry a high respect for them. We accept them as the words of God Himself."

William Penn (Founder of Pennsylvania)

"I believe that there is one only living and true God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the same in substance equal in power and glory. That the scriptures of the old and new testaments are a revelation from God, and a complete rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy Him."

Roger Sherman (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution)

"The gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations!"

Benjamin Rush (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

"I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give my verdict in its favor. I can prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man."

Alexander Hamilton (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here. The Bible ... is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed."

Patrick Henry (Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

I could keep going, but I think I've made my point.

More proposed constitutional amendments have been proposed to eliminate the EC than anything else.

Funny, but I see just one, most recently by Barbara Boxer: List of proposed amendments to the United States Constitution. I expect that's more BS from you. Cite your source...but I forget, you can't unless it's to some article with mere opinion sans facts.

Let's start with 1 million illegal European immigrants living here.

That figure is far too large. According to the DHS, we have 11.4 million "unauthorized immigrants" (or "illegals") in the U.S. in 2012. No matter the number, we should start with the bigger task, evicting the 5 million+ from Mexico, then the 15% from Central America, 12% from Asia, 6% from South America, 5% from the Caribbean, and another 5% from Europe and Canada. I'll let you do the math on the percentages.

source: Illegal immigration to the United States

I personally think the number is closer to 30 million because I think there's about a million illegals living on my block. (j/k, but there's a LOT). We also need to do away with the "anchor baby" interpretation of the 14th Amendment. Maybe this Congress will, here's hopin'.

You show your age using that term, it's Climate Change.

Tomato, to-mah-to. Funny how the term keeps changing...after all, it's not "Global Cooling"...although THAT was the "settled science" and "consensus" back when we dinosaurs were your age. Just because you useful idiots believe in it doesn't mean it's actually true...it just means there's one born every minute, that's all.

Conservatives aren't anti-science;  we're just anti-BS pseudo-science put forth to advance a political agenda and to redistribute wealth.  We're wise to you Marxist scum.


For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these;  'It might have been'.

    Yes, at first it was global-warming and now its climate change.  LOL!  When they found out the climate isn't warming they changed it.  News flash... The climate has been changing forever on this planet.  Question:  How did the North American glaciers melt before there were any CO2 emitting humans?

      Omg. You admitted you have no allegiance to the USA. What a surprise. There is a huge difference between sharing ideas and being anti-USA. I suppose you would support Tim Kaine's communist back liberation theology as well.

      Did you hear about big fire in the townhouse in DC? It was owned by a Democrat, Socialist, and a Republican. Only the Republican survived the fire! Why? Because she was AT WORK.

        Obama, not quite the response I expected. Instead of being a leader, he chooses to be a flamer.

        Don't stop protesting.

            Pence booed at Broadway show. These sniveling idiots should thank their lucky stars they can have a voice. This is the

            United States - freedom of speech is a given but freedom of disruption and leaving no 'safe haven' for those that disagree

            with you has no place here. I'm a bit exhausted over the constant riots, statements, protests, opinions, ideas and actions

            that make our country weaker in the eyes of the world. No wonder immigrants want to come here. Most times in their

            own countries they are oppressed and punished for speaking out or acting out. 

            Authority in the US is challenged, ignored and disrespected. Cop shootings, racial protests, riots and unlawfulness are on

            the upswing and it will not get better. At what point in history (king, here's your foot in) did the US lose its ability to run

            its own nation? Disregard for the law, religion and an upheaval and reversal of of morals are common place today. And it

            all falls under the category of a twisted sense of freedom. Everyone has to abide by standards. You cannot have one class

            of people crying foul and celebrating what's right...for them only.

            Obama and the like thinking liberals have done bad things to this country in 8 years. I only hope that Trump can find a common

            ground for everyone so that we all accept what is right for everyone and shun what is only right for a few. This will take compromise.

            This generation and the one before it needs to be used as an example of what to work away from - something will need to take

            place that changes peoples minds from a singular set to a collective set. Having the President of the US tell people to continue

            to protest swings the doors wide open to interpretation of what is a just protest.

              Agree! And he will go down fighting too..fighting Trump every step of the way. To set up a nation of cry babies by coddling them

              gives power to their cause. They aren't aware or do not really care just what their cause is or the damage it's creating. I've heard

              some protesters try and explain why they are doing what they are doing. Pathetic to say the least. Some just ramble, some look

              idiotic, some are brain dead. Yet they march. Where? I wish it was off a cliff...

                  Nobody is as intolerant as those who demand tolerance from others.

                  They claim to champion free speech, that is until someone says something they don't agree with.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      IMO it has ALWAYS been about Obama, NOT America.  Everything he ever did was I, I, I, I, me, me, me look what I did, never, we or us.  I am betting he must be pretty miserable about now since he is unimportant and nobody cares about him.  However, but we need to be watchful of his actions and motiveshe can still continue to do damage to the country.

                      Come on January 20, bring in the new and out with the old, FINALLY.

                        Here are some quotes by some of the Founding Fathers and I will also include just who they are and what they did...because I'm pretty sure you probably don't know, considering your idiotic statement "of fact" about them. "Certainly were." -snicker-

                        "To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."

                        George Washington (1st U.S. President)

                        "Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."

                        John Adams (2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

                        "God who gave us life gave us liberty. I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."

                        Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence)

                        "Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."

                        John Hanc*ck (1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence)

                        "Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped."

                        Benjamin Franklin (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Unites States Constitution)

                        "And as it is our duty to extend our wishes to the happiness of the great family of man, I conceive that we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world that the rod of tyrants may be broken to pieces, and the oppressed made free again; that wars may cease in all the earth, and that the confusions that are and have been among nations may be overruled by promoting and speedily bringing on that holy and happy period when the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and all people everywhere willingly bow to the sceptre of Him who is Prince of Peace."

                        Samuel Adams (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Father of the American Revolution)

                        "A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest while we are building ideal monuments of Renown and Bliss here we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven."

                        James Madison (4th U.S. President)

                        "When we view the blessings with which our country has been favored, those which we now enjoy, and the means which we possess of handing them down unimpaired to our latest posterity, our attention is irresistibly drawn to the source from whence they flow. Let us then, unite in offering our most grateful acknowledgments for these blessings to the Divine Author of All Good."

                        James Monroe (5th U.S. President)

                        "The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made 'bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God' (Isaiah 52:10)."

                        John Quincy Adams (6th U.S. President)

                        "I do declare to the whole world that we believe the Scriptures to contain a declaration of the mind and will of God in and to those ages in which they were written; being given forth by the Holy Ghost moving in the hearts of holy men of God; that they ought also to be read, believed, and fulfilled in our day; being used for reproof and instruction, that the man of God may be perfect. They are a declaration and testimony of heavenly things themselves, and, as such, we carry a high respect for them. We accept them as the words of God Himself."

                        William Penn (Founder of Pennsylvania)

                        "I believe that there is one only living and true God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the same in substance equal in power and glory. That the scriptures of the old and new testaments are a revelation from God, and a complete rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy Him."

                        Roger Sherman (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution)

                        "The gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations!"

                        Benjamin Rush (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

                        "I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give my verdict in its favor. I can prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man."

                        Alexander Hamilton (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

                        "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here. The Bible ... is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed."

                        Patrick Henry (Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution)

                        I could keep going, but I think I've made my point.

                        More proposed constitutional amendments have been proposed to eliminate the EC than anything else.

                        Funny, but I see just one, most recently by Barbara Boxer: List of proposed amendments to the United States Constitution. I expect that's more BS from you. Cite your source...but I forget, you can't unless it's to some article with mere opinion sans facts.

                        Let's start with 1 million illegal European immigrants living here.

                        That figure is far too large. According to the DHS, we have 11.4 million "unauthorized immigrants" (or "illegals") in the U.S. in 2012. No matter the number, we should start with the bigger task, evicting the 5 million+ from Mexico, then the 15% from Central America, 12% from Asia, 6% from South America, 5% from the Caribbean, and another 5% from Europe and Canada. I'll let you do the math on the percentages.

                        source: Illegal immigration to the United States

                        I personally think the number is closer to 30 million because I think there's about a million illegals living on my block. (j/k, but there's a LOT). We also need to do away with the "anchor baby" interpretation of the 14th Amendment. Maybe this Congress will, here's hopin'.

                        You show your age using that term, it's Climate Change.

                        Tomato, to-mah-to. Funny how the term keeps changing...after all, it's not "Global Cooling"...although THAT was the "settled science" and "consensus" back when we dinosaurs were your age. Just because you useful idiots believe in it doesn't mean it's actually true...it just means there's one born every minute, that's all.

                        Conservatives aren't anti-science;  we're just anti-BS pseudo-science put forth to advance a political agenda and to redistribute wealth.  We're wise to you Marxist scum.

                        I was pointing out that his idea of a safe space is fake, it never existed

                        You don't, real ones anyway. What you think are safe spaces are as real as vampires

                        "If you're talking about having to sit through some lecture by a professor who insists you have to think how he/she thinks, then not just no, but hell no."

                        Also something that doesn't largely exist. Rare cases are newsworthy for a reason

                        ""Lesbe"? A German lesbian?"

                        Never said they weren't Christian or athiests, just that they understood the bible was largely bull. If they lived today, who knows.

                          Yes, at first it was global-warming and now its climate change.  LOL!  When they found out the climate isn't warming they changed it.  News flash... The climate has been changing forever on this planet.  Question:  How did the North American glaciers melt before there were any CO2 emitting humans?

                          You answered your own question.

                          There are natural ways such as volcanic activity that change the earth's temperature.

                          There are also unnatural ways such carbon emissions caused by humans that change the earth's temperature. 

                          I'll leave the science to the scientists, and you should to

                          "Here, we use an extensive dataset of 1,372 climate researchers and their publication and citation data to show that (i) 97–98% of the climate researchers most actively publishing in the field surveyed here support the tenets of ACC outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,"

                            Nobody is as intolerant as those who demand tolerance from others.

                            They claim to champion free speech, that is until someone says something they don't agree with.

                            Man,

                            Truer words never spoken (written). Libbies demand tolerance, but are intolerant of others they disagree with.

                              "The irony here is the Electoral College is a liberal idea to equal the playing field"

                              I dont quite understand how it can be considered a liberal idea?
                              but then again, the world has flipped flopped so much that what was
                              considered liberal and taboo a few years back, is par for the course these days.

                              It's called the Connecticut Compromise when the smaller populated states argued the larger states would elect and possibly control the Presidency.
