    Well in order to really get it, you must spend a lot of time reading some of the libs. Of course, understanding is different than recognizing...:laugh:

    I'm just having a hard time with whole premise here. Homeland Security supposedly came after this kid for requesting a book .... then it turns out he lied. And it appears only Teddy the Negligent Homicide guy believed it.

    Oh no, just yesterday, 3 days after it had been proven a lie, the Sacramento Bee published an editorial based on the big, bad, HSD and the draconian actions towards the poor student. :cry: All based on a lie.

    The part I don't get is WHO exactly did he request Mao's Communist Manifesto from? I'd figure a good college boy would've just looked on the net.

    I guess the point I'm trying to make is that just a cursory look at the accusation shows a lack of common sense.

    We have all sorts of subversive, anti-democracy groups in the US (the DNC comes to mind). Why would anyone give credence to a story that is nonsensical.

    But then I recall Abu Ghraib, Plame, Bush Lied a 1,000 times, Bush stole the election, etc.

    Guess it makes sense. ;)

    That's exactly what happened when the story first 'broke' on the MSM. The blogs started saying, "Whoa, doesn't sound right." Best of the Web and others quickly started to apply pressure. Then the professor went to the 'student', still NOT identified. Anyhow, with inconsistencies coming out, he told the truth.

    Yet the MSM didn't bother. Sad and speaks volumes. When the Sac Bee still keeps repeating it, again it speaks to the truthfulness of the whole.

    Draconian police and harassed college students, ey? Makes me want to drag out my tie-dyed shirt, bong, and Dead albums. Groovy times we live in.

    Come on, everyone. Let's hop on the USMB bus and make picket signs for our campus visits.
