    Ignorance is bliss. America should work like this; when I am talking you listen and the same when you are talking I will listen. The key word is "listen". In this country we are permitted to speak our thoughts. The useless loudmouths in colleges (being paid for by their mommies and daddies) that have since the 60's screamed at people they disagree with prove out they have no concept of the principals of a democracy. Silent protest is acceptable when someone is speaking but the spineless left insist on believing volume is more important than substance.

I'm sure if you surveyed the Rutgers students, they would have no objection to Rice giving a lecture, just not during their graduation ceremony.
    The same Iraq war voted FOR democrats?!

    So where are your comments in the thread where a high school was protesting Michelle Obama? Must have missed you there, but please feel free to show your outrage at those students as well.

    Here's another factoid for you. Protesting IS free speech, even if it is protesting something YOU like.

    Honestly, would Rutgers be a good choice? Maybe Liberty Univ or BYU or some other conservative school.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Rice Withdraws from Rutgers Commencement [W:77:155]There is a topic here and it is not baiting, flaming or trolling. Any deviation from discussion of the thread topic will result in moderator action.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The school invited her. Honestly, I think people could stand a little more exposure to people and ideas they disagree with. Might learn something.

    True.

    But at the same time the school should not pick someone just to get controversy.
