    I know it to be true, that's about all that can be said on the subject.
    I never asked you to divulge personal information. I asked you to back up your claim that that had happened anywhere. you opted out and it's because you can't find any. Which is why you are now hidding behind the "it's personal" bit. You threw it out there like it's an everyday common thing everywhere. If so, surely you can find one instance that isn't personal to you.

    Perhaps you are unclear of what an anecdote is. For me to back up my claim would be to provide you with additional evidence to my story, this would mean I would hve to provide you with either contact numbers of former coworkers, or the name and # to the university where I was employed.

    I've been to several State Universities and what I've said has been true of all of them, what can I do to make you believe? Nothing, which is why I told you to take it or leave it, I don't care, I said plainly that it was an anecdote, that means you can take it as such, believe don't believe, but your insistence to try to prove me wrong by continuously saying that you need more proof you need more proof....

    Surely you can use google, yahoo, bing, or any other search engine and look for yourself, I ain't your errand boy... you are the one contesting me after all, therefore, if you want to take the task on to disprove my anecdote, by all means...have at it.

    So you don't like it when someone gives another credit for pointing out extremism? I do it to the gun nuts all the time, but the leftist around here seem to have a real problem with it.

    No matter the lean, anyone with more than one functioning brain cell can easily decipher--that if the OP story is correct--then indeed Mr. Jarvis went way too far.

    Let me explain this because you have failed to grasp the error of your thinking. This issue has zero to do with lean and I have no idea why anyone would even fathom the notion. There are plenty of liberals who are quite religious. One doesn't need to be a staunch conservative to worship the Lord, and if you look at the thread, pretty much all Liberals agree that it was wrong to take away the right of the student to wear her cross. This thread is about right and wrong -- a mistake made by an overly zealous and ill-informed school staff member.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Never understood the insistence of people to wear religious symbols, clothing, badges etc.
    This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years. (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    While it is true many fine liberal people are religous and have Christian beliefs and values there is an extreme anti Christian element that is also liberal. All too often leftists ignore that hatred and extremism - I was merely applauding the author of the post (an admitted liberal) for admonishing those who were too extreme. As an example I own, carry and support gun rights. I enjoy my firearms, I collect them, and use them routinely. Still I admonish the gun nuts that think we should have no laws, no restrictions and everyone should have a package nuke in their Pirus just because the constitution didn't set forth grounds for "controls." I rarely see an admitted liberal call out an extrmist liberal - I'm glad when it happens. I try to call out extremist conservatives (most are libertarains) when they earn it - which is often.

    Which is evidence of libbo's gone wild and the solution is to lower taxes on the rich and do everything we can to increase their profits.

    In other words we're used to seeing hundreds, thousands of stories of nutty rightwing jerks acting like complete asses so the one chance you get of liberal extremism you all go balls deep absolutely nuts over it because there won't be another for six months and you need to milk this for all its worth.
