    Since liberals have owned and have run academia in this country for well over 50 years, it's hardly a surprise. Liberals tend to go to school more. Conservatives tend to start businesses and succeed more. I certainly got bored in school listening to liberals pontificate on how brilliant they were instead of actually teaching me what I was PAYING them to teach me (Architecture)

    Those who can't do teach that is why most educators are liberals. FYI. Maybe you've never heard that comment before because you're stuck in your little town and never left. Also if you look at any viable poll, the more educated you are the more chance you have of being a republican. Then again, the two party system is idiotic. It just lets the uninformed pick a single issue and call themselves that party which that fits into. THINK FOR YOURSELVES! LEARN! My god ( who doesn't exist you bible thumpers) is america this stupid? I weep

    That's something a con would say.

    If you can't do anything, don't teach. Tell that to Phil Jackson.

    If this country were your way, we wouldn't have teachers. Then, you'd really see what stupidity can't do.

    I posted a topic,asked the Republicans on how do they want to see our country? None of them responedid. I made a topic about whoopi goldbergs life and how she got into acting, and posted it up in the entertainment section, somehow in the back of their mind it had something to do with politics. And the funny thing is if they did't like Bush why did they voted for him twice, does'nt make sense. I talked about how all our rights should stay the way it is, and how everybody should be treated equally, and how we should have more Freedom. Their response, im a commie and that freedom is enslavement. Sometimes when i make a point to them, they just repeat themselves instead of trying to back up their explanation. And also they say im ignorant, for knowing that gays bis and lesbians poor people rich people are people. And a lot of the times when other people make a mistakes and don't even know what political party they in they blame it on others, especially when the mistakes are what most of the Republicans support, and we are bigots and ignorant people? They say Democrats are selfish and greedy people, when the majority of them believe they should donate the money that they dont need to charity. Their response why shoud we, donate money to the less infortunate when we work hard to ear...

Some poor people work harder then the rich. Typical they destroy America, and the Democrats to blame are the bigots.

    Sites like this are overrun by right-wing terrorists. The simply make 15 different accounts to make it look like America is unhappy. We, those with a brain, know differently. We can simply think on our own, which is a burden for the republican's brain washing. They simply cannot do it to those who aren't easily manipulated.

    There are stupid Democrats, and stupid Republicans. There are intelligent Democrats, and intelligent Republicans.

    Right wing, left wing, it doesn't matter. There are stupid people, and intelligent people everywhere. Where you stand on certain issues is completely irrelevant to your level of intellect.

    Sounds about right. Truthiness is more of a conservative creed, after all.

    Unfortunately, it can be overdone. If you're educated too quickly or beyond your capacity to comprehend, you become the dreaded college know-it-all hippie.

    When I was in college, which I paid for myself, the liberals were always perched on the outside of the library. The ones in the classroom were either in the back falling asleep or complaining loudly about republican politics. (some things never change).

    Years later, as I am speaking to my daughters friends, the liberal friends were talking about ways of getting paid for going to college. An American citizen pays for an education, however if you are from a foreign country, you get paid to go to our schools.

    With all this free education, you'd think they would be smarter than they are. They also love to throw that word out there as if it makes them more intelligent.

    Foreign citizens go to our schools for free, yes I know. It's a wonder the government doesn't send our children to school for free, or at least consider that may be the cause for your wondering about common sense in the U.S.A.

    I am a liberal, and outside of working to pay for my own school, I had to waste time educating the Republicans who always beyatched and moaned about the very same Dems who were trying to help make them smarter, more efficient, and without the cost of the middle men such as the Republican-crony banks who charged more interest while the US taxpayer took all the risks for the student loans.

    I have gone to school with thousands of foreign students, and have yet to meet a single one who gets paid to go to our schools. On the other hand, I have heard of a few Republican children who took the spot of a deserving and hardworking Liberal who actually earned the spot in that university because the Republican's Daddy was rich or had connections.

    You would think that the Republicans who whine and moan about paying taxes would actually try to work with the Dems in reducing those taxes by removing the middle men from industries such as student loans and healthcare, but they vote against their own self interests all too often.

    One name is Sally, from Egypt. She was paid to go to school here & is now teaching in the valley.
    Student #2~ Jen worked with me @ Macy's. She is from Japan, she informed me that her daughters are getting paid to go to school here.
    Her government pays for her to go to school, out government does not charge charge her for them to go to school.
    I don't mind paying fair taxes. I don't like my taxes going to illegals that are collecting our benefits, while those of us paying into them would be denied when we are in need.
    By "making us smarter," don't you mean forcing your ideas on us? Your opinions? I've had professors like that. Instead of teaching English 101 it should have been called, "Forcing liberal Politics".
    I don't have much respect for the arrogant butt heads that think that because they have liberal ideals that makes them a rocket scientist. They brag about how intelligent they are & have nothing to show for it.
    I think I will have to agree to disagree.

    If we got rid of the war profiteering welfare queens like Dick Cheney we could give them all Lexus's and still not pay an extra dime.

    Basic education is a right for all in America. Don't like it, take it up with a Constitutional Amendment drive. I have a Japanese wife who goes to school, and we have met hundreds of other Japanese, Asian, European, etc who have paid for their own way without a dime from our govt.

    However, if there is a program that helps escapees from communist countries like Vietnam or even China, well, better to educate them than to force them into crime. It should be at least partial loans though.

    Still, my point is that when it comes to graft and corruption, let's start with getting rid of the worst crooks first.

    i just wanna say that in effort to ensure the competence of teachers the government is now willing to pay for your college education if you sign a contract to teach in a public school for so many years after you earn your degree
    there are many stipulations that go with this too and i cannot remember all the rules
