Re: “Suppression is the goal of many 'free speech zones'

Typically these zones are designated by considering things like safety, impact on public thoroughfares and passage, business impacts, and security. This has been done by and affecting organizations of all political persuasions for decades.

CSIReader:

Apparently only "leftist violence" is a problem for you. Double standard, of course.

Re: “Suppression is the goal of many 'free speech zones'

From a safety perspective it makes sense to keep demonstrators and supporters from being too close to one another, especially since leftist violence has been rampant of late.

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

The author did not "equate" anarchists with communists and socialists. He merely pointed out that groups who self-identified as anarchists, communists, and socialists, were working together. Apparently, the theoretical differences between these groups does not matter as much to them as it does to you, Mr. Tannim.

Furthermore, the original Anarchists (with a capital 'A') constituted a movement whose main political tactic was to assassinate politicians, often using bombs to take out as many as possible. They were hooligans and proud of it, and I think the Communists are offended that you did not call them hooligans as well.

Finally, classic Anarchists, Communists, and Socialists all have this in common: they all agree that progressive change can only come from the Working Class defeating the Ruling Class and dismantling the capitalist system. Communists also believe that their political system will lead eventually to a "withering away of the state." In other words, their ultimate goal is identical with the Anarchists' goal. They just think it cannot be forced or done immediately, but will take time.

Re: “Sheriff's Office's "fight club" results, and two inmates deaths

Fight Club? Reynolds was found unresponsive by another inmate (not sure any other inmates had something to with it considering Reynolds child abuse charge) the other was being transported back to jail from the hospital when the officer noticed he was in distress. Not sure how these two incidents correlate to a couple deputy's vying for the most "use of force" incidents? In typical DNC-style news stories, its blame now ask questions (i.e. discover the facts) later.

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

A debate is a much better way to handle this than a lecture and a protest.

Re: “Sheriff's Office's "fight club" results, and two inmates deaths

Given the gravity and seriousness of this alleged "Fight Club," anyone in their right-mind would question why Elder kept this investigation in-house. I'm confident that most would agree, given the severity, the investigation should have been given to an outside agency for an impartial and objective investigation to reveal the real truth, not some Elder cover-up! Investigations of this nature, to include those involving a death of an inmate, MUST and SHOULD be investigated by an outside agency. Period!

Anarchist punks hijack every peaceful protest and help the fascist PR campaign against reason and truth.

The entire world is a free speech zone, but you have to MAKE it so and defend it every day because the fascist powers hate thought and reason and truth.

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

There is a simple, non-violent tactic that works well in such situations. Instead of dressing in black and trying to block the entrance, dress casually and show up early to get a seat in the auditorium. Wait patiently for the program to begin. When the fascist walks up to the podium and opens his mouth, we rise to our feet, hollering anti-fascist slogans at the top of our lungs, and walk out on him.

Re: “Air Force Academy loses men, women cadets at different rates

Thanks so much for the information provided! I must say that being a cadet in Air Force Academy is really hard and the educational process is very complicated. However, such an education is very interesting and it opens great career opportunities so I think that sending your child there is a smart decision. At the same time I would recommend Air Force Graduates to check http://topresumeswriters.com/military-resume-writers-review.html and to learn more about their career perspectives. Good luck!

Re: “State legislators clash over the rights of charter schools

If these charter schools don't have to follow the same laws or achieve the same standards as a public school, they don't deserve the same funding. They are putting up a smoke screen hiding the real problem: charter schools can teach what they want, even if it goes against accepted science and history.
