sooo....you agree with me about educational indoctrination?
what we have here...is a failure to communicate
A dishonest way to make a living. Hopefully you've had some productive conversations with her about it.
"Some people here" (one, actually) think that insulting adversaries is a good way of winning friends and influencing people. I doubt most do, though.
You'd be surprised. Actually, you can surprise yourself if you only think of all the various schools on a typical university campus. Only a couple would fall into the typical "Liberal" category. If a college graduate is a Liberal it isn't because of something he learned in Engineering, Business, Chemistry or Medical school.Also something about college guys really going for the left at the polls....boy what a shocker.

I didn't cherry-pick. I'm saying if someone has no integrity in the first place then I shouldn't be expected to take anything they say seriously. I don't care what Alex Jones thinks about immigration, I don't care what Micahel Avenatti has to say about climate change, and I don't care what Candace Ownes has to say about anything. I've heard all I need to know I can't trust what I hear. Can you give me a good reason why I should listen to any of those people?
You only know her name because she appeared on Fox News and made an outrageous claim that she knew was a 100% lie. That's what made her famous. She also sued a school district over an incident that happened outside of school. And lived in a $3,500 a month apartment without paying rent for six months, then sued over a "mold problem" more than a year late. And said Hitler was fine if he was "just trying to make Germany great." And lied about being a victim of leftist bullying around her social media bullying project. And she was CEO of an anti-Trump website just a few months before she went offline and reemerged as a conservative on YouTube. I'm going to stop there. There are enough examples of Owens chasing money and telling lies for me to make my decision.
It's also a dishonest exchange when positions are predicated upon dishonesty.
English is notoriously Liberal. My first attempt at college, I wanted to take Architecture. I dropped my major when I saw what redneck jerks most of the Engineering students were. I couldn't stomach spending 3+ years with those people.The only kid I had that went to a mainstream college (Colorado State) definitely felt like an outlier with her culturally conservative viewpoints. She was an English major.

But he did register with the Selective Service.
https://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/se ... bi-6642312"This Agency has no evidence that President Obama's 1980 registration is not authentic," writes Richard Flahavan, the associate director of public affairs at the Selective Service. "However, if you have any credible evidence to the contrary and believe that a Federal crime has been committed, we suggest that it be turned over immediately to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to pursue."
It does not hurt when your followers are dumb as stumps. Which gets me back to my point about education level and support for Trump being inversely related.
I can only respond to what you write. I didn't mischaracterize anything...you called voting a "privilege" and it's not, it's the most fundamental right we have and like I said it defines our democracy.ventura wrote: ↑Sun Nov 01, 2020 9:16 am Meant to comment on this a week ago. Either Vilepagan thinks I'm REALLY stupid (teed that one up for you, right?), or he again mischaracterizes a comment to "win a debate". I suspect the latter from what I've read, generally, on responses to my comments on this board, with the exception of some, like JQP and Joe.
To quote Reagan, there you go again. You were wrong the first time and you're still wrong.Our voting rights ABSOLUTELY should be seen as a cherished privilege in this free country of ours.
And I don't agree that it's a privilege. I also don't agree that we need more "guidelines' to do something we've been doing for years without major problems. Suddenly you think we need more "guidelines"...why?I strongly disagree with Joe and others who think having voters value that privilege at least to the extent that they must have a minimal degree of organization to do it within agreed guidelines once every four years is "voter suppression".
Now you're trying to convince me that you want voter ID laws because they show respect for black people. Too funny.I'd like to think I'd join many conservatives of color, or of a lower economic scale, in saying it is patronizing and demeaning for someone to assume they don't have the wherewithal to vote responsibly by going to the polling place with an ID.
I hate all the ads and signs telling everyone to vote. If you need a reminder, don't bother. Again, to think this a racist or an elitist sentiment is patronizing and demeaning to minorities and those on the lower economic scale. I think you are calling them out as lazy, or stupid.
I'll take door # 3, Monty...what you said was simply 100% wrong. Verbosity won't change that.ventura wrote:Either Vilepagan thinks I'm REALLY stupid (teed that one up for you, right?), or he again mischaracterizes a comment to "win a debate"
Who else could be persuaded to vote for such a person to run our country?ventura wrote:Yeah, Trump guys - knuckle draggers. Keep thinking that.
Again, I don't understand. My point is that college teaches left wing stuff at a time when young adults are most mesmerized by liberal propaganda. Since college is dominated by the left outside of most of the sciences, what's going to be the outcome in the voting booths for those in or just out of college?
Joe - I hope to look into all of this. If you are correct and Owens is no more than a money making charlatan race baiter, al la Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton, I will indeed be very disappointed but will agree with you that she is the worst kind of person.joefutbol wrote: ↑Sun Nov 01, 2020 12:35 pm You only know her name because she appeared on Fox News and made an outrageous claim that she knew was a 100% lie.

thank you for your candor - when Pelosi said something to the effect that we need to get it passed without fully knowing what was in it, the cards were on the tableOmar Bongo wrote: ↑Sun Nov 01, 2020 3:37 pm Obamacare was never meant to be the be-all-end-all, it was only a first step towards universal healthcare. Fought tooth-and-nail every step of the way by the GOP, it's no surprise that in the last 4 years NOTHING has been accomplished towards the goal of guaranteeing every American access to affordable healthcare. ZERO. Congratulations, GOP, mission accomplished. Hopefully we can get that train back on the rails in January...
you guys are much better at searches than I am - it would be great if you could post stats on where tenured professors fall on the political spectrum at the more notable higher education institutions
I think you just made Ventura's point. She said IF that's all Hitler was about, fine...but it wasn't (as she pointed out).
