We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Smokers who litter give a bad name to all smokers and make non-smoking activists even more dedicatedRead More to increasing smoking bans and raising taxes. Several universities have recently banned smoking on campus not because of health issues but because of litter issues. In these cases, considerate smokers lost out because of the behavior of their littering counterparts.

More property tax money lost to the Kent schools. Maybe the members of the Kent State Board ofRead More Trustees will send their own money to the Board of Education to make up for the loss.

Please, ban them everywhere. I live in the city and I can smell the coffin nails the morons threeRead More houses down from me smoke as their sit on their porch. The disgusting smell will waft darn near an entire city block if the wind is right. It's been proven that cats who live in homes with owners who smoke inside are nearly 7 times more likes to develop and die from oral cancer. Not to mention mothers who smoke during pregnancy are proven to deliver underweight babies, not to mention the higher incidence of miscarriages and babies born with cleft palates. Or that incidence of SIDS is higher in those babies whose mothers smoked cigarettes. Plus babies who grow up around smokers are more likely to have ear infections and asthma. Plus 1 in 3 smokes will DIE from tobacco related illness. I know you only comment on patch in favor of cigarette skycat, but facts are facts my boy, no matter how paranoid about the government you are. No, be a good boy and put out that smoldering candle of death and take up walking or running and let your lungs feel what it's like to breathe again.

@Poop You show no evidence that the harm to others from outdoor SHS is comparable to indoor SHS, soRead More what justification is there for an identical ban, assuming that our government does not yet have the right to dictate approved behavior? The fact is, the smoking ban family is so dysfunctional that the former surgeon general who told the world that there was no safe level of secondhand smoke now sits on the board of an e-cigarette company.

"Usually not the fraternity members". That is the most amusing statement I've read in aRead More while. If it isn't the frat members, it's still their fault for holding alcohol parties where dudes get together to get trashed and forget about respecting a woman's right to be A WOMAN. Being born with a vagina shouldn't mean you have to be afraid of the little men with penises. But sadly, it does.
Chris (Kit) Myers August 25, 2013 at 10:10 pm
Matthias, I'm waiting for your evidence that it is usually not the fraternity members shoutingRead More harassing statements at women on the sidewalks. And have you called the police and reported it when you have seen and heard it happening in order to protect the women, not only from harassment, but also from possible bodily injury or even sexual assault?
Matthias P. September 6, 2013 at 11:01 am
Sorry for the late response. No, I haven't reported verbal harassment to the police I've witnessed.Read More Why? Because its extremely difficult to get someone charged with a crime because of yelling a few words at a pedestrian walking by. The individual on the end of verbal abuse would also need to make the complaint her/himself. I suppose I could sit and wait with the confrontation, wait for the police to arrive, have them tell their story, have the police make a decision whether it is worthy of a disorderly conduct/public intoxication charge or not. Then it is a game of hear-say. I feel that safety is a greater concern than charging someone with a crime, its best for the verbal abuse victim to continue to leave the scene with friends rather than wait around for the police. However, if someone was following someone down the street, I would indeed phone the police because I would believe someone's well-being may be in physical danger. Evidence that fraternity members don't harass people walking down the street? They do harass people, but a lot of them are also weary of certain actions like that create bad marks on the fraternity. They are constantly concerned about the fraternity getting kicked out of the University for poor behaviour. This is why official Kent fraternities do not have keg parties and avoid letting anyone have open cups due to the risk of individuals slipping drugs into drinks. However, if the fraternity members are not throwing a party at their official house or are just walking down the street, yes, they are known to harass people fairly often I agree.
