I'm troubled by the concerns regarding censorship expressed here. Especially the post by MPHaus which is disturbingly simplistic. Sure, K has a right to speak wherever he chooses and can find an audience. That said, Westmont is not obligated to give him a soapbox to help him express his views. To confuse a simple refusal to give K a megaphone and censorship is to make a very fundamental and grievous mistake.
If at_large is correct that tickets are $1,500 then any assertion that this is an educational opportunity is completely wrong. How many students have that kind of pocket change? Moreover, both acknowledged Westmont grads posting here apparently have such a woeful history of recent USA foreign policy that listening to K will be indoctrination, not education.

I'm with John_Adams. We need a ballot initiative to get reporting from department heads to the CEO to the Board? Really? Can't this be done with employee performance evaluation?
Regarding the money, it is ALWAYS bad to do budgeting by ballot initiative. D.U.M.B.

Of course, health insurance costs have gone up at a high rate. BEFORE ACA kicks in. Thus, your citation is meaningless in this context.
The amount premiums adjust is so complicated that using a single number such as "average" is also meaningless. The change in premiums will depend on state of residence, selected plan, insurance company, employer, age, etc., etc., etc.
The $! trillion you cite is NOT taken from Medicare - it is being taken from those overpriced, gouging Advantage+ plans.
So the CBO is a valid resource when you agree with their findings but is cooking the books when you disagree. How convenient for you.

My take, Backto Sanity? Read loonpt, above. Eliminate asinine drug laws and a) this guy won't be selling heroin because that's the only job he can find, and b) reduce the prison budget by half and use the money for job training, job support, etc. By doing so, you substantially reduce the drug dealing problem, the homeless problem and substantially increase the general happiness safety of individuals and society as a whole.

JohnLocke knows more than the CBO. Impressive. He also ignores data showing the "cost curve" has already be bent downward by the ACA. Not so impressive.

Native1, in your post you assumed she was drunk. We don't know that. We don't even know her blood level. It would be best to not make unwarranted assumptions as the case plays out.

You meant "decrease" not "increase". Georgy, can the Indy have a tad of that bullet money to hire a competent copy editor?
