    so my assessment, obviously, was based on the comments of right wingers on this forum. Obviously it does not apply to all right wingers. I have known many who are quite erudite and capable of engaging in critical thinking.

    just not on this forum ... or at least not on this thread....



    your comments here further illustrate my point.



    thanks again for the evidence.
    What's a "whinger" ?

    Is it too much to ask such a intellectual as your self to proof read your insipid post first ?

    a "fact" is something thing that is indisputably the case.

    you don't seem to know that.

    I'm going to be replacing the carpet in my office soon. Anyone know where I can get something industrial in a Muhammad print?

    The origin of the present "failure to communicate" is the disagreement regarding the nature of the "facts we know"


    What has been posted on this thread often seems to be the result of a failure to read more than the OP and/or comments from those who agree on certain "facts" and dispute the validity of other "facts"

    At this time, all we have are stories from the student's side as the professor involved is not speaking to the media.

    So then, don't engage...As I said, you are free to think what ever you wish, but your snarky attitude, as noted in this case is unwelcome....good day.

    It is true that the teacher was gagged by the school from speaking about this matter. However, we do have the actions of the school to observe, and those actions speak louder than rhetoric as far as I am concerned.
