All mere coincidences.

And surely you'd have naught to say if a bunch of open Nazis were in the ranks of and otherwise supporting the GOP.

Nah, just throw yet another post of deflective ad hominem, spike the ball, and move on.

Go ahead.

I didn't say that's what she said or meant, I said that “Hitler realized how important it was to control the youth.

Obviously she also realizes how easy it is to control the young mush minds that she teaches at Tulane and would like take that job away from the parents and make good little liberals out of all our kids.

At least you never went to college and suffered the indignity of an intellectual challenge to your conservative beliefs.

At least you admit college professors are far more likely to be leftwing zealots who try to pound their views on people. I agree - one of the first professors I had was exactly that, and she was racially abusive to boot.

I said nothing of the sort.

Is not conservatism intellectually strong enough to withstand even the most ardent and vigorous testing?

Apparently not.

I find it hilarious that most of the people who talk about college professors pushing their views on people never ended up getting a degree in the first place.

Never had any POLS professors press any views on me ever.

Yep. Most of the right-wing whiners never set foot on a college campus.

You mean like how people armchair quarterback over a movie theater they've never set foot into?

You never saw bias in textbooks? Some kind of ideological lean?

You snapping photographs of the theater Holmes decided to go Papadopoulos in doesn't mean anything other than you have way too much time on your hands to try and change the minds of people online who obviously DGAF. Pretty sure I saw enough of what Fed, Houghtam and others had to say regarding your pictures, etc. to come to the conclusion that what you posted probably shouldn't be taken seriously.

Would have depended on the book. It wasn't as if the professors were somehow secretly conspiring to promote a liberal agenda in their classroom. Out of all the POLS professors I had, I can think of ONE liberal and that was based on conversations with him during advising hours or when I was shooting the **** inbetween private research and projects for the department. A mark of a good professor is not allowing personal bias to come in to the way they approach their discipline. Politics may certainly have bias, but learning about issues involved in the process doesn't have to be part of a grand orchestrated scheme.

FWIW, most of the people who were in the POLS/LAW program were ROTC/Military kids or pretty staunch conservatives. I can think of a few outspoken liberals, but most of them were pretty out of touch and kept quiet in the classroom after a lot of people pointed out how dumb they were. Happened to most kids. Some people just didn't get it.

My pictures were as true to life as possible as I explained and I was trashed for making that effort. Apparently I should have left the camera at default which meant very dark indoor pictures that bear zero resemblance to what the naked eye could see.

It doesn't take genius to understand that even a single ccw holder could have drastically changed things that night, and that's the bottom line.

This is true but it's not always the case. Certain disciplines such as sociology and anthropology are riddled with left-wing philosophies in their origins. Marx was a founder of the discipline of sociology and all too often the use of Marxist class conflict theory is seen in their work, especially in the field of critical theory which has its origins heavily in Marxist thought. Some universities give degrees in "activist anthropology" which itself should ring alarm bells. This stuff goes on all too often, and unfortunately those who engage in it get away with it in the name of "academic freedom." My former English professor from hell is still at her job doing the same old crap in spite of complaints from myself and others.

Reminds me of Soviet communal child rearing in which the women were "freed" to work. They viewed the traditional family unit as bourgeoisie and oppressive so they fought to break it up - just like Marx and Engels had wanted.

The two times you voted for Bush.

At least his wars gave you plenty of wounded vets to perform your medical expertise upon. You'll be busy for a loooong time.

Proud?

We aren't suggesting that you terminate your fetus, but you are empowered with independence in this sacred freedom. Should you choose poorly we will have no choice but to intervene on the behalf of the collective, citizen.

Remind me to avoid you as a medical professional. Based on your dogma, you should stick to veterinary services - preferably invertebrates.

For me it was true.

It would depend on what theorist you are going after. Didn't care for sociology, but ANTH was my secondary major and loved every bit of it. Mostly the biological/evolutionary stuff because I go to work with Egyptian remains and bog mummies. Fun stuff.

One of the founders, but differed greatly from his peers. A more objective look would come from Comte, Durkheim, Spencer, etc.

Which would be more of an area of emphasis within the degree, rather than one of its major sub-fields. It would fall under the cultural sub-field. Not that there is anything wrong with that. There aren't many places that offer a "degree" for Activist Anthropology. More in line studies associated in the cultural realm that deal with engagement in social issues and stress a lot of works regarding Franz Boas.

I'm for people going after whatever they enjoy. As long as people can make use of what they learned and connect the dots afterwards, it should be all good. I liked POLS and ANTH a lot and have found them to be great stepping stones for what I have done in and after school. Probably should have went COMP SCI if I wanted to make the gig $, but I have enough technical skills and expertise in that area where I didn't need a degree to demonstrate my abilities in that realm.

Good times, good times.
