The "Safe" Empire

This week, it kinda came out that some University of Michigan students are requesting a "safe-space".

I've kinda got used to the term but I will admit....I think it's awful foolish and just a hint of some kid who wasn't ready to leave home.

The odd part to this story?  Well....they want this "safe-space" at the University of Michigan because they voted for Trump.  You see....there are some other students on campus who voted for Clinton, and they've said some very hurtful comments (or so various pieces from the campus suggest).

After you've sat there for a while and reviewed this....you come to one conclusion.  There's probably already a "safe-space" created on the campus of the University of Michigan, but you can't send this group into that particular "safe-space".  You would have to create another "safe-space".

All of this, if you follow the trend....means that within a decade....the campus at the Univsersity of Michigan....loaded with 43,000 students (part-time and full-time)....would have to have at least three hundred "safe-spaces".

There would be "safe-spaces" for jazz freaks, far-leftists, Communists, pro-Trump folks, Bible-carriers, Catholics, pro-Hitler, anti-Hitler, and gays.

It would create a massive business-like structure where hundreds of support personnel would be hired to help run each "safe-space" and provide comfort to the poor kid.....who really ought to be back home in Soos Junction, Cooks, or Reed City.

Eventually, I think even members of the football team....would be asking for some "safe-space" to handle their stress and panic attacks.  Even professors might reach a point of asking for a "safe-space" for them....perhaps one that would allow an occasional joint, stein of beer, or brief moment with a couple of sips of Jacky D's.

Then as these people go off into the world....they will go to the boss or CEO, and ask for "safe-space" at the company.  This might be the moment of reality.....where the boss says you might want to look for such a place....elsewhere.

Then you might need some rehab at a "safe-space"-anonymous facility.  Four weeks of rehab....some confrontations....a flask of whiskey on occasion....a fist-fight....some reality put back into your life, and then some recovery phase.
