  3. I would have them say no to "The" as that would not be true. There are other State Universities in Ohio; To provide an alternative, "A" or "An" would be much more in line with the truth.

  7. I can see trading marking "The Ohio State University", but how do you trademark a simple common word. Makes no sense.I'm going to apply also to protect The AroundWorldFrog.

  8. Any old timers remember when the orange plague all had orange window stickers that Just said THE UNIVERSITY.

    Used to love to irritate them by asking if they were from Tennessee or Syracuse.
  9. Liberals would complain.

    Ever notice how it’s okay for the Hawaiians to have sacred volcanoes that can’t have telescopes on them and court houses can’t have nativity scenes or Ten Commandments...

  10. correct me on this, but aren't the ten commandments linked to the old testament and really more of a jewish thing that a christian thing.

    i thought jesus streamlined all that with his answer about the greatest commandment.

  12. Jesus was Jewish too, the point being is the left kind of picks and chooses what is offensive to them.

  17. Going from "THE" to the Ten Commandments and Hawaiian volcanos inside the first page. Efficient.

    Those aren't really the same thing, are they? Some natives are upset, but there aren't really any issues with church and state there, are there?

    Its pretty obvious that the Ten Commandments endorse a Judeo-Christian / Abrahamic faith, Nativity scene a specifically Christian one, so it is inappropriate for the government to endorse that. Want to show them in public and nobody will bat an eye, just don't do it on the public's dime. Doesn't seem all that controversial.

  18. So if I tell someone what I did yesterday, I’d have to say “I went to the* lake”?

    *the is a trademark of a state university in Ohio - apparently the* only one

  20. This reminds me of my prosecutor days when Republic of Texas folks would claim they copyrighted their names and threaten to sue if we said them during trial.
