It seems there is a whole video series dedicated to highlighting the “party scene” at various colleges throughout the country, called ”I’m Schmacked.” I warn you the language and music lyrics are foul and disgusting. The behavior of the students is also vile.
It’s amazing that college campuses are quick to censor and punish any conservative leaning student for their ideas and viewpoints, yet allow these videos to be posted. It appears that some of them are at least partially filmed on campus, so the colleges should have some control over their use. Also, while some of the students in the video may be of legal age for alcohol consumption, I am sure that many are under 21. Do these schools not have a student ethics code?
Alcohol use by college students is frequently a catalyst in many student sexual assaults, violence and injuries, and alcohol related deaths. So how is it that this kind of thing is celebrated so openly? The students in the video don’t seem to mind one bit that they are being recorded and easily identified. I wonder if their parents know.
I’ve long felt that many colleges and universities allow this behavior to go unchecked as a sort of reward for students who submit to the liberal indoctrination. I think that’s why so many college kids are liberal Democrats. Wanna bet at least 95 % of them are Obama voters?
If you know of a shoulder who’s looking to hire, this OWSer would make a great chip:
I’m a 26 year old college educated woman whose luxuries are my second-hand 1999 Ford Taurus, my 1 year old cat, and my 40 year old boyfriend who also lives paycheck to paycheck.
Growing up with not a lot of money since childhood, I looked forward to the finer things in life like money and college. I spent 4 years earning an associate degree in broadcasting (paid by the state) which did not get me a job in radio or TV. All the commercial TV stations in my city of Peoria have consolidated and seem to prefer Big Ten and Missouri Valley Athletic Conference grads. So I went 2 years earning by bachelor in business administration (paid by loans at a small private college) which I do not regret despite I can’t get a job as an administrative assistant due to “lack of experience”. I live paycheck to paycheck as a temp at a Catholic hospital, donate plasma, and go can collecting to make ends meet.
I’ve worked jobs through federal work-study, seasonal, and temporary since college and once in my life was laid off after the economy took a crap. The hospital won’t hire me on saying “come back when you have a more stable work history”. The IRS ripped me off on my 2011 taxes because my past employer (a call center for Verizon Telecom) must have fucked up my W-4. I only have $1,000 in savings and am planning to get out of Peoria in search of better opportunities. I only have over-the-air television, eat beans & rice every weekend, and do not need an expensive cell phone plan. I haven’t been able to take an actual vacation because of bills and $22,000 student loan debt and even though I have a job and donate plasma, it’s not enough.
This comes to my conclusion: Why do the rich and the well-off get to have all the fun and benefits while people like me and my boyfriend have to suffer? Employers should NOT hire people based on what college they attended and how are people supposed to get experience when companies won’t give them a chance? In addition I still haven’t gotten over missing our California trip in 2010 despite US Airways refunded our return ticket money. My boyfriend’s well-off parents live there and we were supposed to see them. Nowadays it seems his father doesn’t want our presence because we’re not married with children or have a ton of money or something (BTW he wasgoing to help pay for our visit too). With the way America is going, I’m not sure if I should become a momma someday; maybe instead raise unwanted dogs and cats. Yes I am jealous, insecure, bitchy, and pissed off because America thinks the poor are freeloaders wanting a handout or are a bunch of marijuana smoking hippies who live in their parent’s basement. That’s bullshit! I have a job, I have two college degrees, I am a jack of all trades, and I don’t want to be typecast in Peoria anymore as “That woman who bothered her local CBS affiliate in attempt to get a job there.”
My boyfriend and I are the 99% and I demand change.
Is is just me or is she on the wrong website? To me, this OWSer sounds confused and seems like the Tea Party would be a better fit:
I am an 18 year old working political science/art student. I live with my parents in a modest home and my brother is in the army. My dad was fired over a year ago and has submitted hundreds of applications, but still can’t find work. My mom works 7am-7pm Monday-Friday and makes around $90,000 a year. We can’t afford medical/dental insurance. We have almost been kicked out of our home. We can’t pay our bills. I don’t qualify for any financial aid because of my moms income. To keep our home my parents have to keep taking out loans against my moms retirement fund. We are being taxed to death because people think we are the 1%, but we aren’t.TAX THE RICH, NOT THE WORKING CLASSI am the 99%, occupywallst.org
First of all, let me say this: This OWSer creature below frightens me. Not sure what those things with the eyes are supposed to be. Secondly, this OWSer comic wreaks of the same BS that Sandra Fluke’s $3,000.00 birth control pill story did. Some of the most effective treatments for bi-polar disorder are cheap and have been in use for years. Generics abound and if money is an issue, your doctor or clinic will help you get the medication you need. So I call BS on this story. My heart goes out to anyone who suffers from mental illness. It is a difficult condition and can be hard to treat, but to use a political/social agenda to attempt to frighten people into agreeing with your agenda is disgusting.
According to the article’s author, Matthew Kadey, ”SuperGreens” are gaining a greater acceptance by more and more people. Supergreens are being enthusiastically hailed as a wonderful way to help supplement one’s intake of green vegetables. Medical Doctors, Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists all believe that super greens help the body detox and heal itself from certain conditions. Read the Experience L!fe article here and let me know what you think.

Most health experts will tell you that the more greens you eat, the less likely you are to develop chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. The problem? Most Americans don’t eat nearly enough nutrient-packed dark-green vegetables, so they can’t take advantage of their myriad health benefits, which include reducing inflammation, enhancing detoxification and helping maintain a proper acid-base balance in the body.

What a bunch of hypocrites. I bet there are thousands of non-Limbaugh induced references to sluts and prostitutes all over that campus that not one of these campus liberals protests. Which just makes my point, that this is not about the use of derogatory names for women, it’s really about shutting down diversity of opinion (read: conservative), just like they did with Tom Tancredo and others who did not prescribe to their liberal ideas.
Oh, yeah, and wasn’t there some sort of cheating scandal in athletics or something? That’s what I thought. Hypocrites.
From the Raleigh News & Observer
UNC-Chapel Hill has asked WRDU 106.1, a Triangle radio station also known as “Rush Radio,” to stop referencing the school or the Tar Heel Sports Network during the broadcast of Rush Limbaugh’s daily talk show on the station.
The new practice, announced in a statement from the university, also prohibits mentioning Limbaugh’s show during the broadcast of UNC football and basketball games on Rush Radio.
WRDU agreed to the changes.
