Wood paneling in student union oppresses students?   

 When the University of Michigan decided to renovate the century-old Michigan Union building, they thought it would be nice to get some input from students on the direction the renovations should take. In theory, not a bad idea.

 Unfortunately, the university forgot this is the outrage generation, and should have expected that a student would express concern that minorities are oppressed by FINISHED WOOD:

Anna Wibbelman, former president of Building a Better Michigan, an organization that voices student concerns about university development, stated at a student government meeting in late March that “ minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling” found throughout the 100-year-old building, the meeting’s minutes state.

“I believe it was an off-hand comment about how many students felt marginalized by the quiet nature of the building when they entered,” she told The College Fix via email.

It’s one thing to say you find certain architecture or design “oppressive,” as in stuffy or uncomfortable. It’s a whole different thing to call the walls racist.

This woman literally thought that students of a certain skin color would be freaked out by an old building. “Triggered” by architecture. And not even architecture that looks like a Klan hood or a penis. Just wood paneling.

Switching Just 50% of Our Meat to Insects Can Seriously Reduce Land Use

17 MAY 2017
 If we want to cut the environmental impact of livestock, switching to insects and imitation meat products is our best bet, according to a new report.

The inevitability of turning to insects to feed the world’s growing population has been looming for a while. And now we finally have some data on how much this shift would actually help the planet.

As more people move to live in cities and have higher incomes, meat consumption is steadily growing, which sucks up an enormous amount of resources. Livestock takes up 60 percent of all agricultural land, and on top of that a third of all crops we groware livestock feed.

What do Americans want? jobs & lower taxes. What do they get? another investigation about Russia …

 

Americans want jobs. Americans get another investigation.

Americans want jobs. Lower taxes.  Americans get another investigation about Russia.

What do Americans want?    more  jobs, lower taxes,  repeal  ObamaCare, and control of  illegal  immigration.  Those were issues which caused people to vote for Trump.

What does America get?  Another investigation about Russia ....  whether Russia colluded with Trump or Trump with Russia.

What do we know?  Three weeks after a diner with President Trump ( on Feb. 14), James Comey testified under oath  on May 3, 2017   that there were no attempts by the Trump administration to obstruct any ongoing investigation.  Comey said that loud and clear on May 3, 2017.

Now there’s a ‘memo’ leaked to the New York Times wherein Comey memorializes the conversation he and Trump had on Feb. 14, 2017.  Per the Comey  ‘memo’, (which no one has yet seen)    did Trump say something to FBI Comey on Feb. 14, 2017  that Comey construed  at the time as interfering in an on-going investigation and thus obstruction of justice?

The FBI Director — if he alleges obstruction of justice by Trump due to interference with an ongoing investigation  — is required by law to report that to his boss. Comey did not report. Comey committed a crime if he did not report obstruction of justice.

Another question:  If FBI Director Comey memorialized in writing his conversations with Donald Trump, did Comey also memorialize his conversations with former President Obama?  If Comey did so, what did Obama say to Comey about the ongoing investigation into Hilary Clinton, her personal email servier and her release of  classified confidential information?

So now it’s time for the Trump administration to deliver what Americans want:  move ahead on the domestic issues that Americans want — more jobs, lower taxes, repeal and replace ObamaCare and control of illegal immigration.

What to do if CA becomes a sanctuary state?

borders because it is our countryIf California becomes a sanctuary state —  what can  state citizens do?   sanctuary city of santa ana

How about changing the immunity laws?

Listen to ‘Boring Jeff’ on KSCO 1080 Saturday Special (May 13, 2017) concerning sanctuary cities.

State of California  now actively fights the U.S. federal government concerning on-the-books  federal  immigration laws. States do not set immigration policy and states do not defend a country’s borders.  Is this revolution by one state against the union of states?

Illegals welcome to stay:  CA Gov. Brown’s budget has $15 – 30 million to assist illegal persons (who enter illegally, overstay their visa)  to remain in California.

Legal assistance to fight federal government paid for by CA taxpayers:   Gov. Brown extended the contract with former Attorney General Eric Holder.  This contract  costs CA taxpayers $25 K a month.

What Eric Holder does may well help keep San Salvador’s M13 bad dudes here in California. President Trump campaigned to make USA borders secure and to deport bad criminals.

sanctuary state bad criminals

What to do?   Let’s change the immunity  laws so that individuals harmed by CA state  and cities   — remember Kate Steinle  murdered in San Francisco by an illegal—  can get damages.

Yes,  it is possible to change laws related to the immunity of government against suits.  Louisiana passed laws changing immunity related to road hazards.  Then let’s start there:   Illegals who drive on CA roads are a safety hazard.

____________

Monterey Bay Forum:  Sue the state government?  Sue sanctuary city  of Santa Cruz  and Watsonville?    Yes – if the government does not protect the citizens from substantial harm due to illegals who either enter illegally or overstay their visa.    What say you?

Michelle Obama & new lunches: don’t eat crap

 

roll back of Michelle Obama's food choices

roll back of Michelle Obama’s food choices

Kids get more choice in school lunches.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama, speaking at the Partnership for a Healthier America summit in Washington, D.C., didn’t hide her feelings about a recent decision by Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to give local school districts more flexibility in complying with nutrition requirements for school meal programs.

Michelle Obama: “We gotta make sure we don’t let anybody take us back, because the question is, where are we going back to? This is where you really have to look at motives. You really have to stop and think. Why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?

“Think about why someone is okay with your kids eating crap? Why would you celebrate that? If somebody is doing that, they don’t care about your kid.”

students act like tyrants? deny other students their voting rights…

alice in wonderlandStudents act like tyrants? My, my.

How some students deny other student’s their voting rights:

At Tufts, a group called Students for Justice in Palestine decided to place an anti-Israel divestment resolution on the school senate’s agenda on the evening before the Jewish holiday of Passover, at a time when many Jewish students would be unable to attend the student government meeting. More than 50 students emailed their “senators” urging them to postpone the vote until after the Jewish holiday. The senate ignored their request.

Similarly at Pitzer College, the student senate unexpectedly held a vote on Easter Sunday on whether to prohibit Student Activities Funds to be used for payment on goods or services from any corporation or organization associated with Israel. Many student senators were not present, and therefore unable to vote, due to their observance of Easter and Passover.

The resolution passed 22-0, with four abstentions.The author of the resolution claimed, absurdly, that the vote occurred on Easter Sunday and during Passover by coincidence. As for why she didn’t announce that the BDS measure would be taken up, the author admitted it was “because my intention was to have it pass.” “I have had enough intellectual conversation about why people disagree with me,” she explained

guns permits: we don’t need no stinking permits….

We don't need no stinking permit ...

We don’t need no stinking permit …

We don’t need no stinking permits….

San Francisco has gun storage laws, a hollow point ammunition ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, and a surge in shooting victims that has now hit a six-year high.

In fact, while many types of crime have fallen in San Francisco, gun crimes have have surged.

 According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Property crimes fell 11 percent in San Francisco, from 53,291 reported cases in 2015 to 47,658 in 2016.”  Reported thefts, burglaries, arson, and stolen vehicles also decreased. But firearm-related murders for 2016 surged 15 percent over 2015 figures and the number of shooting victims in 2016 increased 27 percent over 2015.

This surge was predicted when the “high capacity” magazine ban was being pushed–and ultimately adopted–in 2013. On November 21, 2013, ABC News 7 quoted San Francisco Veterans Police Officers Association’s Larry Barsetti saying, “All you’re doing is impacting honest law-abiding citizens of San Francisco; the bad guys aren’t going to obey this law; they’re not supposed to be carrying in the first place.”

Baltimore, Maryland, has gun controls similar to those in San Francisco, including a ban on “high capacity” magazines. And on May 1, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) was asking the FBI to intervene and stem the surging murder rate.
