What are the students getting? Leftist social activism... indoctrination, instead of being taught to think for themselves and learn the things they will need to earn a living.

===============================================

Yes we, the tax payers are the ones that help pay the salaries of these so called Professors. As most Professors are left wingers (google it) it does not bode well for the future of our country.

It makes me and others that want the Professors to be independent and stop with their twisting the minds of our your people very sick.




I have always said the very best teachers are the ones that show students where to look without telling them what to see.  Teach them how to think, NOT WHAT TO THINK!

Robbing students of their education??  This couldn't be further from the truth.  Not all must agree with a learning exercise for it to have merit!!!

Congrats to Arizonia State University!!!!


Well I do suppose it depends on why you are going to college.

 

I am always amazed by the group of seniors that post here.  I assume most are around my age making us "Boomers", children of the greatest generation.  My Dad would not be happy to hear I could skip taking my final exam if I went to protest the new duly elected President.  He was one of those WW2 army soldiers that took God, family and country pretty serious.

 

But hey, what ever floats your boat...

I am trying to figure out your response.  As we have discussed, Marx and the Progressives have nothing in common but most Conservatives can't quite get their heads around that fact. 

If we could get the Conservatives to actually read Marx, they would find that he assumed the central government would eventually fade away as no longer necessary. That seems to be at odds with the Conservative idea that he wanted a strong central government. Now, Lenin was a different story but for some reason Marx is the touchstone for Conservatives. 

 

I am not sure how one goofy professor becomes a Progressive or how he now relates to all Progressives but whatever.

Does that mean you approve of or disapprove of such actions in the Universities? Or would you rather just type "RWNuts"?
