That was extremely painful to watch.
I agree with that. Outside it was utter craziness. We had bands of hippies, Occupy 99% protestors marching, and a bunch of absolutely ridiculous Ron Paul supporters. Just judging by the crowd, you're probably right.
I just had a summer job at Sears (which is owned by Kmart), and they do do a lot of layaway work. For layaway the customer puts down an initial $5 fee, along with however much money they need to put down depending on the cost of the item. In the case of a cancellation (of which, sadly, there were many), the $5 is non-refundable, and there's a $5-10 cancellation fee. The rest of the money the customer puts towards the item is given back to the customer in the form of a check.
Just shared this picture on my Facebook. At least one store has common sense! I've actually seen some Christmas decorations in stores since September!
Hmm... I have a "whole" new respect for Whole Foods now, especially since they seem to cater mainly to the crunchy, granola type people. Don't get me wrong, I love Whole Foods and always will since I'm allergic to gluten, but I always laugh at the perfectly manicured women with their louis vuittons pushing their carts that have a single bottle of wheat grass juice.
Hmm, my college campus starts "Occupy USF" in an hour... Can't wait to see all of the unwashed greasy haired masses congregating outside of my classroom building!
Honestly I'm not really sure, as far as I understand the members of the Young Americans are mainly comprised of Ron Paul followers, where as the College Republicans right now our club is split down the middle with half of us being in the Romney camp and the other half in Cain camp. No Perry supporters among us. But the Young Americans have had a "Constitution Graveyard" out and were busy recruiting, so at this point the College Republicans need to step it up in that block. The Young Americans are also a new group this year on campus, but it is dividing the few like-minded people out there when we really should consolidate together.
Oh and I forgot to add, next year my university will be offering transgender housing to students, so people of the opposite sex may move in with each other, or those who are "transitioning".
Honestly, I have always lived in co-ed dorms. With the experience of two different colleges and knowing the types of housing in both, co-ed dorms are numerous. There are some strictly girls-only and boys-only, but generally these are the very old dorms with hall bathrooms. I lived in a suite with 8 girls, and honestly there was probably always a guy "sleeping" over in our suite. And our suite had the R.A. living there too. While it isn't encouraged, and technically members of the opposite sex are not allowed to "sleep" over, the R.A.s generally turn a blind eye, and of course being on a big public university, free condoms are everywhere for those who are so inclined.
Well let's see, this will be my first post on Ricochet! As a college student who is very interested in politics, I "joined" two College Republican groups. My first year I was at a very liberal, private university. I joined the College Republicans and I went to three meetings before the club seemingly disappeared. I never heard about it again, never got any emails. Now that I am at a large public university (albeit still very liberal) I joined the College Republicans again. Sadly, we are a rather small group. It is disappointing to have such small numbers when we are on a) a huge campus b) in a very important state for the presidential election c) hosting our own debate with the Republican primary candidates and d) the GOP National Convention will be held here in Tampa in 2012. I think the problem is our recruiting methods. We need to better get our names out there, be more open and welcoming to all people. Right now there is a divide between the College Republicans and the Young Americans for Liberty, both have meetings at the same time.
