Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

You are a moron. You have no respect for musicians. STP had their own sound 100%. Have YOU ever composed an original record? Idiot.

Re: “A quick tutorial on making a proper ghost costume for Citadel cadets

What were they singing? Why waste a whole sheet that is way too big and long when they can just simply use an extra pillow case? Rumor has that it was a black student filming the scene. Why would you post KKK stuff on a snapchat app when it is easily traceable on who recorded it? Heck lets ask the lady who reported these photos on what she heard in this video? I would stake my life that it was christmas carols.

Re: “A quick tutorial on making a proper ghost costume for Citadel cadets

I'm trying to imagine being a knob and told to dress like a ghost (this would be Dec 1991). White sheets might be an option but A) you have to use a lot of those making banners and they cost money and B) "holy crap, we might look like we're in KKK robes".

So, right there in the full press and half press we have: white socks, white pants, white gloves, white T-shirts now we just need something to put over our heads with eyeholes and there's a pillowcase which is cheaper to replace. Fuck it, good enough, let's do it so we can get back to studying for exams and get to Christmas furlough.

On the scale of bad things that happen at US colleges (murders, rapes, assaults, deaths or near deaths from alcohol or drugs, cheating scandals, etc) this is pretty mild. I guess it shows what a high opinion, with correspondingly high expectations, people have of The Citadel. So, we're honored.

Liars. Ghosts don't have pointed heads. I might believe condoms.

Have you ever met someone who believes in ghosts (or has seen a ghost), David Kyle and also Ron Liberté?

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

"But his wife was not and as the investigation has progressed they have found evidence that she was radicalized before entering the country and that he was radicalized before he even met her. It sounds like she would have been a very good candidate to say, hold on, we're not so sure we can let you in here."

If they had been "radicalized" for years, why did our amazing security programs not prevent this tragedy? I thought we were going further into debt as a nation so we could fund bloated military and domestic surveillance programs to prevent these types of things from happening.

Seems like the FBI has been too busy trying to set up specious sting operations of mentally questionable people to get more funding (http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/0…) instead of working to prevent actual terrorist threats.

"Syed Farook was born in the United States."

Yes, he was. But his wife was not and as the investigation has progressed they have found evidence that she was radicalized before entering the country and that he was radicalized before he even met her. It sounds like she would have been a very good candidate to say, hold on, we're not so sure we can let you in here.

"In 1924 and 1926.."

Yes, we know you want to live in the past where white men got to do whatever they wanted with impunity and minorities and foreigners knew their place.

"it says temporarily ban entry to the country for people of that religion until we can figure out the best way to make sure they are not trying to get in to harm us."

Syed Farook was born in the United States. How could we have made sure he didn't get in to the country from his mother's womb? Conservatives oppose abortion.

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

"In 1924 and 1926, partly in response to pressure from labor unions, Congress put in place the first comprehensive quota systems to limit immigration into the U.S.
For the next 40 years, from 1925 to 1965, the United States had a relatively restrictive immigration policy, which allowed 200,000 people into the country annually, on average.
Demographers sometimes call this period “the Great Pause,” although at the time, most Americans thought of it as permanent."

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

Maybe he said it somewhere else that I haven't seen but this doesn't say to get rid of the Muslims that are in the country, I have done a couple of searches and can't find anything where he said that. And that doesn't say ban the religion, it says temporarily ban entry to the country for people of that religion until we can figure out the best way to make sure they are not trying to get in to harm us.

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

Once again, Trump is calling for a ban on all Muslims, regardless of citizenship. That would include his good buddy Muhammed Ali, Shaq, Kareem, and countless others. The man knows little about the Constitution and cares about it even less.

Be prudent on who you allow in. I'm not going to argue with that. But Trump has proposed a blanket ban on a religion.

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

We are a nation of laws but they apply to citizens of the country and to residents that we have allowed to come in, and for whatever cockamamie reason in most cases to residents who are here illegally. They do not apply to folks who are not here yet. That is not to say that we need to ignore our principles for non citizens or people who are not in the country but allowing just anyone in is not part of that. We have a screening process that already works towards that goal but we know that it has weaknesses. Strengthen the screening process and then everyone can feel more safe and secure.

Being prudent on who you do allow to enter the country is not a bad or racist thing. Looking at a population that has a subset that have expressed a desire to wreak some form of havoc and not letting that subset into the country has nothing to do with emotion. It has to do with saying let's be on the safe side.

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

We are a nation that is governed by laws, not emotions. And one of those laws protects religious belief and speech. I personally like that law. Same goes for the Second Amendment and all the others. They make us what we are, and I'm not willing to just toss those away because somebody is frightened.

Personally, I think the fear of a near constant threat of mutually assured destruction was a lot more frightening that a potential attack from an ISIS sympathizer. But I get it. Today's Americans are a perpetually paranoid and pants shitting lot these days.
