Typical. Say your mind based on your core beliefs. If the Left doesn't agree with it, you need to be shut up and shut down. Now I've never watched the show. Don't plan on it. BUT in any case, I would think the producers would have a little sense and say, "Hey, this guy says stuff that reflects the thoughts of a slice of the American people with whom we disagree. But every time he says something like this, we have the opportunity to bring the issue to the center of the discussion. Let's keep him on!" But nope. That would mean they respect your ability to think for yourself.

This is the perfect set to start your little ones learning how to shop… its cute, space saving, and great for the imagination.. :)Just like Walmart. But I think if it was to work like the real Walmart self-checkout then on every other item it would insist that you bag the item even though you've already done so. And on every third failure would stop and display a "Please wait for assistance," until some extremely unmotivated checkout monitor would slowly saunter over and clear the error.
Oh, and this should come with a play EBT card, too.

Apparently he's given our home phone number to the IU Notify system and they've been graciously calling us to keep us apprised of the lockdown of IU because of two individuals absconding after have a knife fight with an acquaintance on campus property . The all-clear call came a few minutes ago when the IU Administrators determined that a knife fight among friends posed no danger to the campus computer at large.
If they're this touchy, I wonder what the IU Administrators will do on Halloween? Be careful what costumes you choose, kiddies. I'd shy away from going to your parties dressed as say, the traditional pirate or musketeer waving around your cutlass or foil. Or any costume that is complemented with a firearm.

I have no idea what's going through President Obama's mind as his administration directs these actions. And I don't know what he expects to accomplish. Surely not to win us over to his side. Did you watch Yogi Bear cartoons as a child? Who did you root for, the Ranger or Yogi? Exactly.

Maybe I should wear a baseball cap in remembrance of Christopher Lane and as protest against his senseless death. Or do I have to stick with that hoodie?

Does anyone actually believe this? I'm trying to figure out if a lawyer or if Rachel Jeantel herself came up with this unique change of emphasis/interpretation of the phrase, "crazy-ass cracker" in an effort to make it less racist, only to land on homophobic.

According to the post, Bingham supplies about 17 percent of U.S. copper consumption and 1 percent of the world’s. Ouch.

I'm waiting for the usual accusations to be made by the Leftist Media. I'm also concerned about what freedoms the Government will take away from us in this round of "We have to do something!"

Gayle Cook and Herb Simon each saw their net worth shoot up in the past year, according to the latest calculations from Forbes magazine, which were released Monday. Cook, the widow of Cook Group Inc. founder Bill Cook, and Simon, the owner of the Indiana Pacers, were two of four Hoosiers to make Forbes’ annual list of the world’s billionaires.
Glad we taxpayers could help, Herb. We'll keep letting the Pacers play rent-free in the fieldhouse we built and let you keep all the revenue. You need it.
Oh, and leh lehizdayen, mamzer.

British diners shocked to find mystery horsebeef in their meals can take heart: South Africans have learned that their own burgers contain donkey. And then there's the giraffe meat in the antelope snacks.
Donkey burgers! Taste like ass.

Prince John decrees that the English longbow is an 'assault weapon' and is illegal to own. . .oh. This story isn't going where you'd like it to. Nevermind.

Colleagues,I feel so much safer. And I can't wait for the active shooter exercises. I can only imagine what it will involve. Likely duck and cover. Very nostalgic.
In the wake of the heartbreaking tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, all those who lead educational institutions feel an increased obligation to take all possible steps to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. I write to inform you of the planning and measures we’ve undertaken and to ask for your help in that effort. The IU Police Department maintains highly trained armed officers on all campuses, and each campus unit has mutual aid agreements with their local municipal and county law enforcement agencies. Response to any shooting incident would be nearly immediate. Given the nature of our campus communities, we continue to enforce a general ban on firearms on our campuses. We have updated emergency and response plans on every campus to better address prevention, response, and recovery from any kind of incident. As part of this effort, a comprehensive exercise and drill schedule is being developed. Exercises have already been conducted at IU-Northwest and IU-South Bend. An active-shooter exercise is planned for IUPUI in Summer 2013. But little of this preparation will be successful unless we all work together to maximize the safety and security of our campuses. IU maintains a robust emergency notification system that can reach students, faculty, and staff within minutes. It is extremely important that everyone register for this alert system. Only you can provide your cell and text number to the notification system. Please do so at http://onestart.iu.edu. This system will be the primary outlet for emergency messages in case of an incident. If you “See Something, Say Something.” Be aware of your surroundings. Report suspicious activities to IUPD. Know the contact information for your campus crisis management and behavioral consultation teams. Do not share your access cards or keys with others. Finally, some time ago we developed a single web site through which a wide variety of general safety and security information is presented: http://protect.iu.edu. Specific to shooting incidents, pay particular attention to the new information at http://protect.iu.edu/police/active-shooter.
There is no fool-proof way to prevent random acts of violence. But if we work together, we can significantly minimize the opportunity for such tragedies to occur at IU while also maximizing the effectiveness of our emergency response.

"[T]his seems to fly in the face of the spirit of the ACA, something odd from a traditionally liberal organization. Not only will this keep more folks from getting health insurance, the pay cut will make it harder to afford it on your own."Them unicorn farts don't smell as sweet as you thought they would, eh, Spanky? Maybe you're starting to realize that Obamacare was not about getting health insurance to more people but about growing government. But Big Government is Good Government, right? Right?

Heard a rumor that the University will be limiting part-time faculty to a max of six credit hours per term, so they will not have to offer healthcare benefits under the Affordable Care Act. Has anyone else heard whether this is true or not?While one of the directors of a program that hires a large number of adjunct faculty looks into the veracity of this, I note that such cuts have been reported in The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Huffington Post and other news sources. Considering the political persuasion of almost all my faculty colleagues and how most of them likely voted in the last two presidential elections, all I have to say is:
