You know, like Paris. Reply They want legal immigration from underdeveloped countries, just like the Parisians did… Reply I got no problem with legal immigration. It’s the other kind that chaps my hide. Reply Is it parisinians or parisites? Never been too sure…. Reply They decided to “liberally” round up the numbers? Reply I figure half the attendees were getting “participation points” for showing up at the rally. Reply The numbers are probably correct. 1000 UT professors oppose guns in the classroom…just not enough to actually do anything about it. Reply So are math skills that bad at UT-Austin? I count way less than 50 in each of the pics. Reply It’s Common Core, they use about ten different methods to count to 50, then add them together, and multiply them by feelings. Reply Their math skills are fine. The count 1000 is in base 3. Reply They used to same counters as the Million Man March in DC. Reply Who cares what a few kids want? Reply They count “opposing” and “refusing” faculty like the “moms” count members: if someone checks a box on an internet page, they “count”. You really don’t have to do anything, like, say, walk across the campus and show up at a “rally”. Reply Your beating a dead horse. Reply *You’re Reply That’s their Indian name. Reply If you think about it, they are quite literally protesting for the right to their own facts. Who are we to say they’re wrong, they FEEL it and it’s on a SIGN! Like the sign on my zipper that says “beware of sasquatch.” Reply They are so afraid of guns and so blinded by confirmation bias that they would rather die than be saved by a concealed carrier. Reply They do’nt count so gud. Reply At least they got enough profs to hold the sign up! Reply Nah, probably “teaching assistants.” Reply I count 20-30 people in the pictures. Where are the rest ? Where is the survey that supports their claims? How many faculty work at UT ? And finally, why don’t their number match ? Did they arbitrarily decide to “adjust” the numbers? Many questions with few answers. Reply The numbers don’t match because they are referring to two different sets of faculty members. One is “faculty”, which includes more than professors, who “oppose” campus carry–but may not go so far as to “refuse” to have guns in their classrooms. The other is “professors” who presumably go further than just opposition in principle to campus carry, but will [somehow] refuse to allow guns in their classrooms [supposedly]. Not that any of it makes any difference, what we have here is , yes, “settled law”, like, ahhhh, Roe v Wade. Reply We need to raise the voting age to 26. Maybe then these children will have time to grow up before they try making decisions in the real world. Reply Horse shit. Old enough to carry, old enough to vote. Reply This is a good point. If there is a “reasonable person” premise for the use of deadly force, shouldn’t there be one for voting, too? If your head isn’t in the real world, you should be voting there either. Reply It’s Utah, The Momons will find a way to incorporate them into their food storage program. Reply The stars at night are big and bright. Deep in the heart of dumbass… UT alumni 92-95 Reply 1163 UT faculty refuse to oppose guns on our campus. Is this what they meant to say? Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
