asb 1 year, 6 months ago on LU, Linn State treated fairly in ‘performance’ funding?

Rick I don't know why you removed my post pointing out that I was not disrespecting LU. Oh wait, there was that knot on the head thing. Sorry MO4, but you completely mis-read my post. I can only imagine followup comments from our usual suspects on their disrespect of LU, but I have no such position. Please click on my avatar and read a few of my posts. You'll find me quite supportive of LU.

You answered your own question. Fees on registration. Nothing in the constitution proscribes registration . . . in fact a well regulated militia might be considered one with a good inventory of arms. And, still nobody taking your arms.

I have a humanities and a science degree, I'm making fun of other posters in this thread. I guess my writing skills would suggest I say "other" useless humanities stuff. But, you could've still miss the sarcasm, again my fault. I apologize.

Yes to background checks, no to drug tests, unless that also includes alcohol.

asb 1 year, 6 months ago on LU, Linn State treated fairly in ‘performance’ funding?

I don't see where Lincoln is classified as a community college by anything in the on-line version of the story, in fact it appears that Linn and Lincoln are being contrasted with CCs. Linn has some STEM curriculae, but Rolla, MU, and other state schools have the bulk of it. Linn has a tech focus, not an advanced research or higher degree programs. They're all underfunded, except those schools that teach that women should be educated, employed, and paid rather just bred. Those schools should be shut down eh?

Even state standards don't always hold up to a reasonable smell test. Creationism, non-science, bigotry and mysongeny are pushed by religious fundamentalists and other backward thinking dolts all over the US. At least Missouri still requires science, math, language skills, tech skills, and history along with all that useless humanity stuff.

It's not even up to him at all, except as a leader expressing an opinion. It's the Scouts' decision alone, and their future will be determined by the public's response. As long as people realize that the Boy Scouts already have gay scouts and leaders, removing the pointless ban is not that big a deal.

And the fight continues, "revolutionaries" funded and trained by outsiders, and supported by majorities of the populations. Neither were democracies with elected administrations. No comparisons apply.

We'll never know, Americans will not elect a CIC who would make such a dufus mistake. 100 million protestors, against FOX's imaginary conspiracy? Right. Remind me again which side the Tories were on? Posse Comitatus seems to be arbitrarily applied . . . I recal National Guardsmen patroling Kansas City's Plaza in the spring of 1968, and yes I know they're not entirely the federal army, but they are the military by any reasonable definition.
