“Well if that's so, then we have to reinstate tobacco advertising for the same reason now that the Supreme Court has granted citizen status to corporations. It's just as much a violation of free speech for cigarette companies as it is for politicians.”

Read about the distinction between commercial and political speech.
Commercial speech has less protections because it is commerce, not just expression of opinions.
Political speech has the HIGHEST level of protection, because the government may not judge which political speech is true or false, or good or bad. Obviously.”
“"Queer?" Kind of an odd term to be using in 2012”

“i cannot speak for everyone, but it has become a common, non-offensive term in the academic world. CSUF has a lecture series on 'Queer Studies' (http://calstate.fullerton.edu/news/2011fall/thinking-queer.asp). My colleagues and I do not find it offensive at all. we have embraced the term and have made it our own. LGBTQ pride!”

“As in "gender queer", not an insult as some have made it. Look it up on a LGBTQ website; they'll explain all about it. I think there's even a diagram or scale-type thing in some places to help people with gender identity issues place themselves and give them a label to feel comfortable with.”

“It does seem like an old-fashioned term, but the LGBTQ set embrace it as one of many terms that encompass their experience.”

“I thought so too...I have not heard that term in AGES so I'm with you on this one...that word stood out to me as soon as I read it.”

“What do you think the Q stands for? LGBTQ . Queer is common place amongst the LGBTQ it is not offensive nor should it be. You have just placed a stigma to it from being uninformed.”
“He's a thief. His father is a thief. Bobby Fergusoin is a thief. His mother may even be a thief for all we know. He's going to be in jail for a while when the Feds get done with him. Kim Worthy will look good in comparison.”
“I'm starting to feel sorry for Sarah Palin. She was used by the Republicans to add some life to tired old McCain and his boring campaign. Then the media got all excited over her and made her a star of sorts. She, not knowing any better and an opportunist by nature, took it all seriously. Now the Republicans are trying to distance themselves from her, but the media keep the spotlight on her and keep talking about her as a presidential candidate. She believes the hype and is driving all over the place in a bus making a fool of hjerself. It's all a very sad state of affiars.”

“i don't feel sorry for her a bit. i used to feel sorry for the kids but got over it.”
“Don...You hit the nail on the head. The old model of teacher as authority figure is transiting to teacher as facilitator. The University system...and in fact the entire educational hierarchy...is broken. This is not something for the Obama administration to support with more money. It's something that should be rethought and rebuilt.”

“Let's starve the system of funds and investment; delegate more teaching to overworked and overqualified permanently adjunct faculty and disenfranchise millions with high tuition.
Then declare it broken and let the private sector fix. hmmmm.... where have we heard it all before? Can't recall, really.”
