Come on, cal. You libbies think a selfie of a Weiner in nothing but a bow tie is "formal."

One can only give thanks that Twitter didn't exist during the Clinton administration. Can you imagine? [shudder]

Maricopa County, Arizona, district attorney indicted 10 illegal aliens who had registered to vote. (All had sworn on their registration forms that they were U.S. citizens.)

I could go on and on to prove your claim is a lie, Clueless, but why bother? You’re a hopeless, clueless ideologue. Just keep believing and parroting the lies your masters tell you. LOL

Seems we are educating more people, and they are less mature and self centered at this age than in the past, when they had worked for a paycheck for 4 years instead of partying and provided all this technology. Even middle aged people have digressed with this.

Its a shame that youth are so self focused that the administration needs to tell them not to do this. Do it on your own time. I have sat through graduations and they are very long. Be proud you have graduated from college, but dont think it makes you so special that you have the right to hold things up. Where is the respect. Congrats to grads, but this social media has become nonsense, sharing where you are eating dinner, stuck in traffic, having a drink, what you are thinking, glad your work day is over, etc. It has become over the top, both with reporting and with selfies. Once in real world, boss doesnt care.
