Except he likely has tenure and can't be fired. Though I think with the rise of social media tenure contracts will start changing.

I don't know why this is so difficult to understand.



Me either... Like I saw a story on the news from Tuesday that a student was passing out copies of the Constitution on campus and he was told that he had to be in "Free Speech Alley" to do this.

People were screaming, 1st Amendment, they are impeding on his rights. Now I think there is somewhat of a grey area being that it is a public university and the likes, but there is a designated place to do this.

From what I have seen of university politics, I think tenure is a good idea. However, I don't think it was originally intended to cover these types of comments.

Probably is tenured and can't be touched, which is just another reason tenure needs to go away!


Sooooo....Tenure, a benefit enjoyed by many academian's, should go away BUT there should be no releasing of CEO's benefit packages to share holders....is this what anyone thinks?

He had to be in a free speech location to pass out the rule book of the United States government?

I'm assuming he was being boisterous about it, but at it's core, that's kind of disturbing....

What if he was passing out Bibles? What is he was passing out Pizza Coupons?

Either way, he was soliciting and the University has a place designated to do it.

First thing I thought, but if they can't limit him from bothering students with handing out the constitution, then they can't limit the "God Hates Fags" church from going anywhere on campus and doing their thing.

I mean that makes sense, but I find it interesting that you have to be in a free speech zone to tell people that you have right to free speech.

Maybe it's just more sad that people are offended by someone distributing our nation's constitution. That's literally about the only thing I can think of that shouldn't offend anyone in the U.S.

"Get out of here with all your radical 'we have rights that can't be infringed upon' talk! Tea Bagger!"

Agree. If someone is being calm, not harassing anyone, not bothering anyone, and just asking people if they'd like a copy of the constitution, I don't see an issue.

But it opens Pandoras box... Then religious groups and the likes would be lined up all over campuses, bothering students, and handing out crap.

You can still be fired if you have tenure. But it's just highly unlikely.
