Not sure what you mean here. Obama's children look nothing like each other. Not sure if either look like Obama, but there are rumors that the Secret Service is investigating Chicago milkmen.

Agree. Academic diversity of opinion is not welcome at Florida Atlantic. Only racial and gender identification diversity.

Propaganda 101 - Goebbels to Limbaugh.
The percentage of conservative professors pales in comparison to the percentage of liberal professors on college campuses.

One of the reasons for this is professors have to "publish or perish" and most educational journals lean left. The liberal professors are published. Conservative professors are virtually left out. Students then read these publications and the cycle continues.

All one has to do is look at the Colorado professor who was in the news a few years ago who lost his tenure after much controversy surrounding his radical teaching methods and his comments about 9/11.

He was not the exception but the norm.

If the police actually forcibly detained and interrogated the group, then they should hire an attorney and sue the piss out of the school.
Apparently, the university has "apologized" after much public scrutiny and public reaction.

I agree with you. Conservatives can no longer play the role of "Mr. Nice Guy" and it's time these universities were held accountable.

The economy is hanging by a thread propped up by the Feds printing money that keeps devaluing the dollar and Wall Street only surviving because, as one person put it, "we're the prettiest horse in the glue factory" in light of the global economy and the more serious problems in Europe.
This president doesn't like capitalism, so the more things go south, the closer he is to fundamentally changing the country.
You really don't get it, do you?
only Reason Wall Street is going strong is because of Government Spending & Bailouts.

Oh my bad, he also listens to rap! That ought to do it for you! I asked for a funny & you surely delivered. How can his kids not look like him in your eyes when you think all black people look alike? Lol! You should try stand up comedy, your on a roll, DUDE!

How does that equate in your eyes to somebody who is really white? What it is, is you people wanted him to come in & erase 500 years of injustices to the black community. I respect him for coming in, not being biased, & doing the job he was elected to do. He was elected as thee person to stop the recessive climate created by GB, he did that. He ran on universal healthcare, he did that when no president before him could & all tried. He got the stick market to break record numbers, totally changing the skepticism of investors. He reigned in wallstreet giving them the oversight needed to prevent another recession from happening. Made it easier for minorities to apply & receive financial aid/student loans. Ended Americas biggest mistake (Iraq war) when it was unpopular among his colleagues. True the date was set byGB, but the big topic of debate during his 08 campaign was whether our not to extend & send more troops & whether or not to leave a permanent presence in Iraq. That alone save the US over 30 billion a month. Seems to me,your mad cuz he didn't get reparations for past atrocities. That will never happen do get over it. This president has done a great job with what he was giving. Did I mention he achieved all this, the Lilly Ledbetter act &Aall under republican opposition vowing to do all they could to make him a1 year president. Base your opinion on facts not right wetting talking points/media propaganda!
Give it a rest, son. Those two beautiful girls drive right by my house every day surrounded by men in full tactical gear with more machine guns than even God could envision. No white folks will ever harm those girls and that's the way it should be. They're beautiful. What would be helpful is if they'd repave Quebec Street which is a MESS!

Sure they are. That's why white kid coming out of high school is more likely to continue schooling than black kids by a 5/1 margin.

An apology is insufficient if they were forcibly detained and interrogated. Sue for punitive damages. Demand the dismissal of the racially insensitive university official.

Don't play to the white folks, they're angry and scared. Just sit back and let them yell themselves out. It's not too long from now. They're almost gone. Trust me.

Public universities were meant to be the breeding ground of free thought, free speech and open ideas.

When an attempt is made to subvert, manipulate or bully students into silence or submission, we have a big problem.

It happens a lot more than you think in many liberal state universities.

"silly"
Freedom of speech and assembly mean nothing to you? Was the group breaking any laws or was it the fact they were offering a message you do not agree with? If was a left leaning group that had their meeting disrupted you would be screaming bloody murder.
You are a hypocrite.

Obama's children do not resemble each other in any way. Will leave it to your judgment which, if either, more resembles Obama. But Obama clearly favors one over the other.
