Bedwetter alert

Sigh.  What is it going to take to wake up this generation? Another World War or Depression?  One group of bed-wetters got upset over the actual flying of the American flag at their university.  The Daily Caller reports:

Student government leaders at Loyola University Maryland faced a barrage of pressure from the university administration to change the theme of a senior class party described as “very alienating, divisive and harmful” and against the university’s “core values,” according to emails provided to The Daily Caller. The theme? America...

 The day after Trump’s victory, a handful of students messaged SGA representatives to argue that — because of Trump’s victory — an America-themed party was now inappropriate. One female student claimed she was “a victim of horrible hate words” and worried that similar mean things might be said at the party if the theme wasn’t changed.
When the possibility of unpleasant feelings wasn’t enough to cancel a class-wide event, the administration got involved....

 The university’s executive vice president, Susan Donovan sent an email to two SGA members claiming she “talked with a number of students and heard from faculty members” about the party. “None of it is positive and it sounds very alienating, divisive and harmful.”

“I encourage you to reconsider this plan in light of the legitimate concerns raised by so many,” Donovan went on to say. “We have made progress in providing a welcoming climate on campus and do we want to reverse that progress with a theme that divides us?” Donovan did not return TheDC’s request for comment by press time.

Sheilah Horton, the university’s dean of students also tried to pressure students to change the party theme, in a lengthy email that portrayed the students as insensitive for not canceling the America theme. Rest of article.

You just can't make this up.

Some people have just too much spare time on their hands. Their life is so boring they have to come up with some bs to attempt to make it more interesting. Tis is an example.

My name is “Old Glory.” I can’t remember when I got that name, seems it just came about. In one way, shape or form I have hung over this country in peacetime and in foreign countries in times of war. People have given their lives for me to be proudly displayed. It mattered not who the president was, nor what his name was, “I” flew where he sent me to represent this great nation. People pass me by, on a daily basis, and give no thought to what I represent; but today I ask that you observe me and those who have given their service and ultimate sacrifice to this country. My name again is, “Old Glory,” and it is, in all humility, a beautiful name.

Speaking of bed-wetters, what about a President-elect who goes on a Twitter rant every time someone disapproves of him (e.g. the cast of Hamilton, NYTimes, SNL, the list goes on). Don't act like the left is the only side with bed-wetters with an intense need for "safe spaces." That would be quite dishonest.

Someday you will have to admit the election is over. A life long criminal politician was not what the country decided they wanted. Accept it, quit crying like a baby and get on with your life. Next time let them know it isn't the best idea to pick a crook to lead your party.

I agree with the students and I'm sure that in order to be consistent with their core values they will now decline all government grants and loans, and the university will do the same, As a Catholic University, the school should decline all church and religious funding since a core belief of Christianity is its exclusive beliefs.

1:09 is right. I remember when Broadway, NY Times, SNL called out the Obama administration

Well, it is theoretically possible that Broadway, NY Times, SNL could call out the Obama administration. After all, the Obama administration, pure as it is, could theoretically make a mistake.

@1:09, I get those Tweets and am grateful that Trump has a way to bypass the MSM. I enjoy getting them and do not consider them whining. If you do, why read them? As far as the students, my kindergarten grandchildren seem more mature than these idiots. Schools of higher learning need to develop a zero tolerance policy for changing their guidelines. Thoughts like these students need to go to their local coffee houses or bars. School is to learn and get prepared for a job!

For those of you who continue to claim that this/that "wasn't what the country wanted" should have a look at the popular vote. It'll look like Hillary would have won by 2.5M votes by the time it's all over with.

Trump hardly has a 'mandate'. He'd be wise to lead from the center, although his cabinet choices indicate he has every intention to not do that.

Making Twitter Great Again.. said...

@ 1:09; There was no such thing as Twitter in the days between Obama's election victory and his assuming the throne. You may not remember him whining through his liberal media. And just weeks later, he received the Nobel Peace Price for his incessant whining. But, half the country knew he was America's first post-racial president and the rest of us were still too in-shock to pay attention to his whining.

You have a choice now....Either get aboard the Trump-Train or stay inside a safe-space.

8:07, I have read that the Republicans received 3 million more votes than Democrats in Congressional races. Sounds like a pretty strong mandate, especially since Democrats barely dented the Republican majority in the House and failed miserably in the effort to take control of the Senate. With control of both houses of Congress and the presidency for the first time since the late 1920s, it sounds like a mandate for a conservative administration to see what it can do. It is pretty clear that the overall message is that more of the same is not what voters wanted. We will see if the administration can deliver. The presidential election is not designed to produce a campaign to win a popular vote majority. Who actually knows what the results would have been if Trump had campaigned in heavily blue states like California, or of Hillary had campaigned in deep red states? But the overall election, looking at Republican sweep at state and federal levels, looks like a mandate to me.

I fully agree with 8:36 with one addition. Instead of staying in a safe-place, simply move to Kenya with your beleved EX-president.

The Daily Caller omitted parts of the story that The Washington Post did not.
There is no mention here of the incidents that occurred on campus after Trump's victory and prior to the senior Latino students had been shouted at and told to " go home" and Muslim student had been told the same and shoved as well.
Nor is it mentioned that this was to be a costume party.
Given that the divisive politics in this country has caused friendships and family relationships to end, caused protests and physical fights and even death, I don't know how all the blame gets attached to those who " whine" about being bullied and none is attached to the bullies.
What do you suggest students being bullied and insulted do? Rather than " whine" to their student leaders and administrators, should they take matters into their own hands and brawl? Shall they pull guns on those who are bullying them?
The millennials didn't create this hateful atmosphere that infects this Nation. It is an atmosphere that is nearly impossible to escape as some asshole will , at any gathering, bring up politics. We are constantly warned of the dire consequences of something so that enjoying our blessings has become difficult.
Thanks for adding to it by bringing up one incident in another place that was handled without bloodshed and is none of our damn business.

3:23 pm Apparently you don't watch SNL. They have made fun of Obama and Clinton many times and long before they had a Trump skit. Those two have taken it in stride and played along with it.

There is a difference in someone poke fun at you and someone threatening you. Reacting to the first is whining. Reacting to the second is human. Apparently you can't see the difference in parodying a individual's behavior and words versus telling an individual to t to leave the country and screaming insults at them to their face.

Let's see...
We need to be suspicious of all millennials because of the actions of a few.
And, add all Latinos except for Cubans ( they might be illegal) , all Muslims ( they might be terrorists), all African Americans ( they might be criminal or on welfare), all politicians ( except those in the Tea Party as they can't possibly be tempted by greed or power), all non-NRA members, all Democrats , all RINOs, anyone who lives in Jackson, all Christians who don't adhere to a fundamentalist point of view ( as they aren't " real" Christians)...geez I know I'm leaving out some other groups. College affiliation is a red flag as well. Oh yes, anyone who goes to Whole Foods ( but is Fresh Market in Madison ok?)
Y'all are really reducing the number of people it's ok for me to not despise. I can really feel superior to almost everyone now! This is great!

8:58, you are beginning to understand. Now all you have to do is try to understand why some people feel that way about the groups you posted. You haven't quite got that part down yet. If you need any help with learning why some people feel the way they do I may be of some help.

Millennials- sort of hard for me as I don't keep up with all the names groups call themselves to divide them from the rest of us.

Latinos- what makes you think Cubans are not considered to be latinos? Most of the illegals in this country are latinos. We, the people, have to pay higher taxes to provide food and a home for illegals when we have a hard time providing the same for our family.

Muslims- maybe you have forgotten all of the people killed by muslims. Some people have family members that are no longer alive because of the muslims.

African Americans- Have you noticed the crime % for them? How about the % on welfare? Do you know who pays for those benefits?

Politicians- Tea party members are politicians. Most people think of them in the same way as they do all politicians. Politicians do not necessarily have to be crooked, they have their own set of laws to prevent this. Still it isn't enough for most.

Non-NRA members- The majority of people are not NRA members. We do hope they continue to help us keep our guns.

Democrats- Did you happen to notice who they picked as their presidential nominee? Do you remember what happened when the Clintons left the white house the last time. Some people consider theft as wrong, some think it is a sign of presidential fitness. You get to choose.

RINOS- covered in politician above.

Jackson citizens- The crime level in Jackson is one of the highest in the country. Streets are some of the worst. Water when it is available is not safe. Elected officials are crooked. Law enforcement, the only way to tell them from the criminals is the uniform. Some people were forced to move to get away from it.

Christians- Just my own personal experience, I do not know any real ones. I do know many who use religion for other purposes.

Colleges- It is very hard to say anything good about colleges. They have failed at preparing our young people to make a living. They encourage students to break laws. Sort of funny, when the kids do break the law they always yell to the cops for help when anyone gives then a cross look.

Hope this has helped.

Isn't it funny that Madison has a Mosque but Byram, Richland, Flowood and Pearl do not? PC culture is on the losing end

Saturday Night Live never made fun of Obama or Clinton. Only Trump. And they will pay for it.

Saturday Night Live has been going downhill for a long time. This is a last gasp of a comedy show that isn't funny. Maybe they can get the democrats to watch it for a little longer.

2:49....Madison doesn't 'have a mosque'. It's not in the city limits, by design. You obviously know absolutely about zoning ordinances and how the proposer for a facility gains approval to build. 'PC Culture' does not enter the process.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
