    95 percent of the elite liberal arts colleges have faculty who register as Democrats. The percentage is somewhat lower in business and engineering universities. These elite liberal arts colleges are the source of the Political Correctness which is suffocating common sense.

    Back Talk,

    So its the schools fault that this young man brought a gun to school and tried to kill people? I am speechless. So much for personal responsibility, so much for parental responsibility. I would think that most reasonable people would suggest their are better ways to solve problems than with guns.


    Quite a generalization that our schools are populated with left wing teachers. I would like to see your evidence of that. If you have concerns about what is being taught, you need to take that up with the Utah legislature, who is pretty far right and micromanages the curriculum being taught in our schools today.

    Neither one of these comments are appropriate responses to this incredible tragedy.

    Our schools are not short changing our children, and that is not the reason this tragedy happened. Utah schools are populated with teachers that match the belief system and world view of the population as well as any group of people does. Just because you want students to learn about and agree with your own personal political ideology does not make you right by definition.

    Our schools are short-changing our children. The schools, which are populated with left-wing teachers, do not tell our children that Socialists (Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Che, Castro, Mugabe, etc) were responsible last century for over 100 million deaths, primarily silencing political opponents. In a free society that just doesn't happen. Shouldn't our children understand the perils of progressivism, socialism, Marxism, and Communism?

    Karl Pierson obviously did not understand these perils.

    Wow, so as i suggested yesterday, the school tried to control what speech and opinions students can express at school. That led to a disatrous event brought on by the resentment caused by schools telling students that they cant express an idea unless it is politically correct.
