I did not hear anything on my prior message (the one which was on the main thread on this topic) so maybe this is the way to make the request?...
| Political Talk|| NYPD Commissioner given Heckler's Veto at speech - Quidam65 on 10/30/13 at 9:35 am|
Not shockingly the "college administration" is upset. (Of course, had the speaker been a conservative, the college would have had no problems with the hecklers. In fact they probably would have pre-emptively cancelled the event--for "safety reasons" of course.)
| Political Talk|| Afro-Beat Band banned from college for being "too white" - Quidam65 on 10/29/13 at 10:32 am|
The group has played in Harlem and is well accepted there.
But not in academia (which is overwhelmingly run by lily-white "tolerant liberals").
| Political Talk|| Reporters Beware of Opposing The State - Quidam65 on 10/29/13 at 10:28 am|

| Political Talk|| Government Slimdown cuts off road--tourists trapped in Montana town - Quidam65 on 10/11/13 at 12:18 pm|
There are only two roads out of Cooke City, Montana.
One connects to a mountain pass and is currently shut down due to snow.
The other goes through Yellowstone. Residents have "special passes" to travel the road. Tourists stuck in Cooke City, trying to get back home, can't get those passes. ...

The Dems run DC. But it's their colleagues in Congress who won't allow a funding bill for DC operations to be given a vote.

I apologize if this ends up tl;dr, but the issue is complicated and will probably leave you :banghead: at the end.
