Marc said Obama refused "to call Islamic Fundamentalism the root cause of the terror activities", I suggested that is not what Obama said, and you said Obama did not say that, and now you are saying Marc was correct. Sorry, you've lost any pretense you had at having a rational conversation.

Secretaries of state, Secretaries of the Treasury, and Executive Chairmen of large agricultural companies are idiots, and you are not. OK, again, you are entitled to your opinion.

I don't know how much plainer you could make it for us. Thanks for agreeing with my assessment of your position.

No, what you failed to notice was that the Democrats and Republicans were telling entirely different stories about why she was banned, and that the Republican story kept changing.

So you agree that Marc is wrong. OK, next time you should reply to Marc instead of me.

OK, so Schultz, Paulson, and Page are socialists. Really? You are aware that Paulson was Secretary of the Treasury under George Bush, and Cargill is the largest privately owned company in the U.S.? That's kind of the essence of capitalism.

"Our Republican leadership, both male and female, felt that they did not maintain the decorum of the House,"

So, in your mind, it is OK for the majority to silence the minority?

It also says she was banned for saying the word 'vagina', which apparently you decided not to notice.
....
Katie Carey, press secretary for the House Democratic caucus, said the first reason for the ban given by Republicans was Brown’s use of "vagina," as evidenced by Callton’s remark. Then they said Brown violated House decorum. Then came the "no means no" explanation.

"I think they’re just trying to use whatever excuse they can come up with and whatever fits," Carey said. "I think that they didn’t expect it to be as big a story as it was."

....
In your mind, it is OK to ban a member of congress from speaking because the speech was deemed offensive by those who oppose her viewpoints. How is her being banned from speaking to represent her constituents not an infringement of freedom of speech, but being expelled from a university is?

And they do retain their first amendment rights. They have simply lost the privilege to represent the university.

It is an insult to suggest that a man might be interested in a woman's vagina? A breach of decorum, maybe, but you are suggesting that speech can or should be restricted because some listeners might be offended.

Not everyone agrees with your perspective. This sums it up pretty well.
