    I think they're liberal because they've never had to live in the real world. They make phenomenal salaries; have tenure; fabulous retirement programs; excellent healthcare plans. "What's the problem?" they're most likely to believe.

    That, combined with the neigh-unto worshiping adoration they get from young people, gives them a completely warped outlook on real world problems of the working man.
    Phenomenal salaries? Maybe some of the superstars, but trust me, a starting ass't prof. salary in a CA private institution of $50,000, especially after all those years of study and tuition, is not phenomenal ... And adoration by students? LOL ... Maggie, you need to do some more research on this ...

    I can't afford to smarten up. I live in Illinois. Democrats have driven this state to the edge of bankruptcy and have failed to even address the problems. My real estate taxes are $4,800 for a 3-bedroom 2-bath 1200 s.f. home in suburban Chicago; working class neighborhood; 1-car garage; no family room.

    Nope. Can't afford it.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Some alternatives to graduate school at Ivy League universities:

    1. Get a library card
    2. Google information not opinion nor parsed information (opinion)
    3. View historical data objectively and question what might be causal, even at the expense of what you might wish the answer to be; find the answers, do not coerce answer that fit prior misconceptions.
    4. Feed your curiosity; less will seem curious for you.
    5. Hold your city and county officials' feet to the fire, and know that your property taxes are being spent in ways that might actually better your community and better-educate young minds.

    Years ago when I got my undergraduate degree I had no idea the faculty were all liberals, with a sprinkling of socialists, Marxists, liberals and communists. I was too busy trying to find some girl to sleep with to notice.
    When I got my Masters degree I knew that more of the professors were liberals, socialists and so forth. I was taking courses more technical and less subject to nonsense. Even my honors military history courses were bereft of the America-haters.

    I survived. I thrived.

    Not everyone is so fortunate.

    Or, if you were brought up; with the right value system you will reject Marxism. You will reject the Democratic party and the Establishment Republicans. You will reject the socialists in both parties.

    No. But it could be that the ones who select other teachers are liberals themselves.
    I spend my days with a great many people with engineering, physics and math degrees. Most of them are younger than me. A few are liberals. Okay. One is. All of the rest recognize that merit is a much better method to distribute the rewards of life than socialism is.

    when you write posts like this you simply help me make my point ... You're juxtaposing "merit" and "socialism?" Really?
    I think I've had it for the day ... you cons are simply too much work, and half the time one doesn't know where to begin because there are so many things wrong with your posts ... perhaps another time when I have more energy ... take care ...

    Seems reasonable to me.

    Socialists do not rely upon merit. If they did they would be conservatives.
