Here we are at Vent Page 119

Vent pages are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc, which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name? Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it.  Sound off.

ASU Adopts Free Speech Policy

Appalachian Faculty Senate  as adopted a policy of protected free speech. ASU Faculty

"In brief, the University’s fundamental commitment is to the principle that debate or deliberation may not be suppressed because the ideas put forth are thought by some or even by most members of the University community to be offensive, unwise, immoral, or wrong-headed. It is for the individual members of the University community, not for the University as an institution, to make those

The Gospel, Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

 “Most of the messages that have claimed to be the Gospel of the kingdom have really been about how to control people and get them to behave the way we think they should. Jesus proclaimed the Gospel of the kingdom by demonstrating it and its power over all of the conditions on the earth.”

         “Jesus basically went about saying (to paraphrase), “You

College Students Rioting

I published an article based on my Master’s thesis.  I entitled it “Birds of a Feather Frolic Together.”

I discovered, using the MMPI, I could predict with 100% accuracy which dormitory sections could be expected to have the most disturbances.  I also found that 2% of the population in each troubled dorm section accounted for the majority of the turmoil.

Now I am beginning to wonder if on today’s college campus, something similar is going on.  We see the campus riots, but they all seem to be a small percentage on each campus

Support for President's Arpaio Pardon

An individual copy of your letter will be sent to each official:
August 29, 2017
Dear President Donald J. Trump:
Dear Sen. Richard M. Burr (R NC):
Dear Sen. Thom Tillis (R NC):
Dear Rep. Virginia Foxx (R NC-5):

WE, the Undersigned, support President Trump's pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Joe was convicted of contempt of court for "profiling" Mexican-looking people when searching for illegal immigrants in his Arizona territory. It is ridiculous to call that racial profiling. The New York Times today said that Arpaio was guilty of believing that Hispanics are more likely to commit crimes. When the crime is illegal immigration, of course, they are!

President Trump was right to pardon Arpaio. Please show your support.

WE, the Undersigned, believe that the hard work by Sheriff Joe of defending the United States must be rewarded and continue.

Who are the Crazies?

The deranged media, with a new ploy, is saying “Attacking us is proof that Trump is mentally unstable.”  I looked in our Diagnostic System Manual (DSM) as well as the International Statistical Classification (ICD).  Nowhere did I find a diagnosis for pointing out that the media has become corrupt.

New Rules for Trolls

 People from all over the world check into our blog–even Russia and China. Last month we had more readers in France than in the US. Social media, like blogs, have taken on a new importance.  What use to be called the main stream media has abdicated its role.

 We have some really thoughtful and meaningful discussions on our blog and to keep it that way, following are new rules:
