    Maybe you breeder boys should pull out...you wouldn’t have abortions if you don’t get women knocked up.

    Wide spread birth control usage = no abortions

    The Pro Fetus crowd just wants to control the sexy lives of everyone as they see fit.

      There were times Gays were fired ftom gubmint jobs because they were gay. How come breeders didn’t get fired for being a breeder?

      I ****ing hate when you right wing pussies say thus bull****.
      There were times when you could be executed for stealing a horse...I think we need a constitutional amendment protecting horse thiefs because there was a time when we executed them.
      Worth noting, a "breeder" can be fired for having too many children. It even has its own discrimination title - Family Responsibility Discrimination or FRD. Guess they need their own constitutional amendment protecting them also.

        Nope. Never said they were...unlike those that still describe the NYT and WAPO as fair.

            Hahahahaha! High up in my ivory tower...that's funny! Whatever floor of the ivory tower I occupy, I have gotten there by hard work and inspite of race and sex based discrimination I have had to endure. I can count four jobs that I know of that I did not get hired for because of my skin color or sex...those are the ones I've known about. In one case I actually went to EEO and tried to file race based discrimination charges...The EEO specialist said that I clearly was discriminated against based on my race BUUUUTTTT that since I was not one of the "protected classes," I was forbidden from filing any EEO complaints. In her words, it is OK to discriminate based on race and sex as long as the person is white and male. I've walked into bars in NY, Miami, Philadelphia, etc and been told that they don't serve "my kind" and that I should leave before things "got ugly." I remember applying for a particular scholarship at the Univ of MD and being told when they returned my application that the scholarship was not for me because I was the "wrong color." As I progressed in my career, I moved into a number of management and leadership positions that included "hiring authority." Over the years, I would say that I have interviewed and selected over 200 individuals for positions. In at least 75% of the jobs, I received two selection lists from HR...a "diversity list" and a "best qualified" list. If I hired off the diversity list, no questions were asked about my selection process and no justification needed to be provided. If I selected off the best qualified list, I had to spend about a week (on average) justifying my selection, having my selection process reviewed and questioned and endure a "diversity review" of my work unit. On at least four separate occasions, my boss at the time specifically instructed me to select ONLY from the diversity list.

              Because they saw what happens when a university pours every possible dime into athletics. It crashes. At least that parking garage is finally getting fixed.

                As I indicated to consider this editorial direction, if it is the case, does not come close to making either of these papers "left wing" unless you are so far right it appears so from your prospective. They would never come close to endorsing the policies of the far left. Center left at the most and that is really very weak.
                A term in the current lexicon - Institutional Bias. While the NYT and WAPO as institutions do not specifically say they are indorsing the policies of the far left, the culture and makeup of their newsrooms and the stories they chose to publish show their bias.

                    Can you explain how WCU's reserves are keeping everyone else afloat? I thought a school's reserves were a school's reserves.

                      Something a lot of people learned from this is that the money really sits with PASSHE. So reserves are held collectively with PASSHE. Right now those total roughly $700 million. Based on what I've seen before, at least $300 million of that is West Chester. None of it is Cheney's. I've been told Cal and/or Clarion are near zero as well.

                        Next question: How does an institution acquire reserves? Is this "profit?"

                        • Left over money at the end of the fiscal year. This is how Cal was funding athletic scholarships. The PASSHE term for this is "unrestricted net assets". At the end of the FY, the schools can spend the money on pet projects. Like football.

                            • I don't get the big shock over faculty being cut. It's a failing business right now. That's what happens. If things turn around they can hire the next batch. That's the breaks (and what happens in every other profession in the known world).

                              It sucks for those involved but they (system) have to dig out of this mess. Drastic change requires drastic measures.

                              When your enrollment is free falling out of the sky ... time to sink or swim.

                                Iup has claimed that in 5 yrs it would meet the students/ faculty ratio passhe wants through retirement, but passhe wants it done in 2. The question is will they have to rehire in 2 to 3 years- national faculty searches are expensive. The other issue is that faculty do more than teach, things like fund raising Grant writing, recruiting and so losing faculty reduces these value added things. It weakens the universities significantly. Of course there is always the resentment as culpable groups like admissions or the president is unscathed
