“I used to work in a newsroom with both genuinely talented reporters and hacks who love to take it out on interns or anyone who had less clout when they made mistakes on air. Every station has at least one or two of these blowhards who love attention at any cost... even if it means keeping their on camera make-up on after work lest someone should fail to recognize them at Starbucks.”
“Do you ever see the Chinese having drunk orgies on the coast? No.
They're too busy figuring how to implement American research to acquire alternative fuel cycles for nuclear reactors.
INTERPRETATION: Dominate Clean Energy = CHINA replaces USA as the next SUPERPOWER.
I LOVE this country but the majority of American college kids worship "partying" and stick their aptitude, initiative and ambition where the sun don't shine.”

“All of those Chinese people are going to die someday too. The only difference is that they will have lived a miserable life working towards an end goal that they'll never reach. I bet you're a really fun person to hang out with.”

“Are you serious about China leading in clean energy? If the pictures of Bejing with the incredible smog are any example of their clean energy effort, then I seriously doubt they will overtake anyone in the clean energy arena.”

“We desperately need more students devoting their energies and attention to the sciences. The U.S. currently ranks 17th in math and 24th in science among nations. We are even behind Estonia. Our top universities are filling up with foreign students who are hungry to learns such disciplines as physics, microbiology, cosmology, engineering, geology, computer science, astrophysics, chemistry, mathematics, etc.. The future of our country is already bleak. If this trend continues, it could be catastrophic. There is nothing wrong with blowing off some steam and having some fun. That is what spring break is for. However, when spring break is over, it's time to get serious. But, as you said, they lack aptitude, initiative and ambition. In the end, we will all suffer if this trend is not reversed.”

“College has been like throughout history. I was reading the biography of Giacomo Casanova, and he did the same kind of drunken partying the University of Padua. In Italy. In the year 1740.
It's all about balance. I partied a lot, but completed 2 Bachelor's in 4 years with a 3.5 GPA.
Everyone likes to think each subsequent generation is more morally decadent than the last.”

“Well, I agee with your last statement. But claiming that China will dominate in clean anything is unbelievable. Take a trip there, sometime. There's not a clean spot in the continent, let alone the country. The foostuffs they exported are filled with lead and other contaminats. They ARE trying to figure out how to get your money. And, yes, I've seen MANY drunken chinese. And it is tradition to at celebrations to take turns drinking with the guest of honor, in order to get him really drunk. they rarely succeed against Westeners, however.”

“If you touch a hot stove, you get burned, and you NEVER do it again!!!
There are no consequences when it comes to bullying! Even sociopaths understand consequences. If every bully and their parents actually paid for their crime, these atrocities wouldn't be happening every other day.
If every principal and every teacher was held accountable for the students in their classroom, if they were docked five dollars from their paycheck for every incident that occurred on their campus, you better believe it would never come to this.”

“How about we hold the parent accountable first, since thats where it starts!”

“But we live in a society that avoids, evades and flees from personal accountability at every turn.
Corporate CEOs, banksters, teacher's unions, and lazy/absentee parents stand united against accountability, despite all their other ideological differences. Everyone in America wants to be payed and praised regardless of what actual net impacts they have on society.”

“That is about as stupid a comment as I have ever read.
"If every principal and every teacher was held accountable for the students in their classroom, if they were docked five dollars from their paycheck for every incident that occurred on their campus, you better believe it would never come to this"
Teachers and school administration staff have been neutered of any ability to control/discipline the little monsters that attend the schools they work in. Either you have no children or don't get involved in their school if you do otherwise you would know that school officials are hand cuffed for the most part and the students know this. My wife is a teacher and I have been trying to get her to change professions even before her first job because this behavior or variation of this type of behavior is standard daily exercise in every public school in America. And its people like you that perpetuate the decline we call public education in this country with the ignorance you display in your "well thought out" comment to this article.”

“I watched with disbelief as a cop threw his squad car keys to a Denny's waitress so she could retrieve his wallet for him moments after hitting on me from across the room. Suffice it to say, he ordered 'Moon Over My Hammy'.”
