    Watching the History Channel this morning a thought came to mind! Isn't it amazing that some of our greatest enemies in the end who have attacked America attended our American colleges and were educated right here in USA including Yamamoto, 911 Hijackers and others!

    It's very interesting but I don't find it very surprising. Apparently in some places it is considered unconstitutional to deny grants to illegal aliens. Alabama had an issue with this not long ago. An Illegal Mexican girl was apparently getting a decent bit of free funding and grants, and they discovered she was an illegal. It caused a big stink, and I don't remember how it turned out.

    It's bad enough our hospitals have to treat them and drive up insurance and medical costs beyond their already totally exorbitant costs.

    Nobody said they were illegal aliens.

    No, but the deal was about these people going to college here. I was pointing out how it is not surprising to me that they went to college here, even illegals who never paid a dime in taxes, and are breaking the law just by being on this side of the border are going to school for free.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific.

    pretty much anybody going to college these days are being taught to hate capitalism, democracy, and the constitution and being spoon fed how great countries are who are following communism. not surprising at all. you want to hate the country, go to college.

    Uhm... maybe not all of them, try going to a small town community college in MS. They still preach God, democracy, and free trade.

    dude come on. its common sense that community isnt like an actual college or university, its where smart people go to get the important classes out of the way. my ass should have went to Tri C first but instead i went to Cleveland State first like a retard and had to put up with liberal hippie douches during the bush era and threatening my physiology professor cause he was actually, and i **** you not my brothers, for attempting to praise Pol Pot.

    It sounds like you had a bad experience at your school, which is too bad. I went to a large public university, but I did not experience any of the things you did. But perhaps that was because the man who founded my school was a patriot himself:

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

    I think schools, a lot like states, may teach liberal, or even socialist ideals based solely on who is running the program.

    I can vouch for the liberal to almost socialist bias of Everest University. Wanna talk about pissing off instructors...:cool:

    It also has a lot to do with the inhabitants of the area. I would think a School in NY would tend to be more liberal than a school in podunkville MS.

    I feel the same way. Not because of the lack of "education" but because of the type of it. I'm having to take chemistry, algebra, and music appreciation. My major is Forestry, the job I'm going after is wildlife conservation law enforcement/ Game Warden.

    Do they want me to be jammin to Bach while looking for poachers and spotlighters, or giving a hunter's ed course?

    That's hardly a symptom of "today's" college education; it has pretty much always been so.

    It's unlikely that you have to take specifically chemistry, algebra and music appreciation. You're probably required to have some minimum number of credits in the sciences, mathematics and the humanities. I, for one, do not think it is inappropriate to expect that an educated person have some basic knowledge of science, math and the humanities.

    No, they think they are giving you the education required to bestow a degree in Forestry upon you. You're not in a vocational certificate program. I seriously doubt that you will ever regret knowing a little chemistry, or being able to solve a simple algebra problem, or recognizing a Chopin ballade.

    Robert Heinlein had it right when he said, "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

    Learn whatever they'll teach you. It won't be wasted.
