Intelligent Conservative students can attend Ivy League colleges without being indoctrinated.

However, they need to be careful about expressing their views if they want to survive.

Many do.

You can't cooperate and unite with those who want to kill and conquer with an evil intent of total power over the masses.
Otherwise, there would not have been WWII.
We'd also be one big happy family with Communist regimes and sitting around peace talk tables with Iran and al Qaeda.
The world just doesn't work like that.
When you're being mercilessly bullied, you only have two choices. Continue getting the snot beat out of you or find a way to fight back and get the upper hand.
Cooperating and uniting is not even an option.
Who do you want us to cooperate and unite with exactly?
Cooperating between the two American Political parties for the good of America is what I meant.

A huge mistake.
President George H W Bush and President Obama both seem to understand the use of the Air Force over ground forces. No fly zones have less casualties.

Walking while black with a hoodie on scared poor fatty Zimmerman.
If they're racist, just say it! Why lie & make themselves look stupid by saying a kid eating skittles & drinking a soda, while wearing a white hoodie is or was a thug probing the neighborhood casing houses? Everyone knows burglars in robbers wear all black in hopes of not being seen. The entire case is stupid. What does it matter if Zimmerman's back was dirty or, the back of his head split open? We know there was a fight that Zimmerman provoked. He started a fight with a teenager & couldn't hold his own so he shot him. All the rest of the trial is irrelevant!

Yes, and here's a super example of taking action to fix a problem:
Gary Wozniak is cultivating an urban farming initiative in Detroit that he says could create 18,000 new jobs in the city over the next two decades. Those kind of numbers are likely to perk up the ears of job-seekers in the Motor City, where the unemployment rate hovers around 23 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Wozniak, a former financial consultant, is the driving force behind a nonprofit called RecoveryPark, which is developing three separate but related agricultural projects: an urban farm spread out over a 2,475-acre zone on Detroit's east side, a food processing center and an indoor fish farm.(Click here for a slideshow of Detroit's up-and-coming development projects.)
Talk about large-scale urban agriculture in Detroit in recent years has largely focused on financial services magnate John Hantz, whose plan for the world's largest urban farm evolved into a deal last year to create a 140-acre commercial tree-farming operation in the city.
The nonprofit RecoveryPark, initiated in 2008, has a very different focus. The operation is looking to hire ex-prisoners and recovering drug addicts, people who usually face barriers to employment. That's a mission close to Wozniak's heart; a recovering addict who spent three and a half years in federal prison because of drug-related activity, the project is a chance for him to give back to others who are recovering.

An admission of complete and total failure, but probably the best use for an urban wasteland.

Question is, can the natives be taught farming?
Yeah

(This might post twice and sorry if it does.)
Since I'm not privy to all the evidence, I'm only going by what some are saying is known to be fact.
But my question has always been who is most responsible for the confronation having taken place to begin with? And did Zimmerman put himself in the position of being attacked unnecessarily?
Both answers in my opinion are Zimmerman and yes. Zimmerman is most responsible for leaving his house after being told not to and getting out of his car before the police arrived and, therefore, put himself in the position of being attacked.
Whatever good intentions he may have had, in my opinion Zimmerman took on the role of vigilante as soon as he left his house with a gun.
Neighborhood watches cannot pursue people with guns even based on suspicion and even with good intentions. No one would be safe in any neighborhood.
Again, that's my opinion. The evidence may prove otherwise. And I could be wrong.
Zimmerman supporters are of the opinion the engagement didn't occur until the first physical contact occurred. Their claim is since Zimmerman appears to have suffered the most damage, he must be the victim by assumption.

They also take the position that Zimmerman was always in the right to do anything he claims he did. What they don't do is give the same assumptive reasoning to Martin. If you listen to their arguments, it's almost as if they treat Zimmerman as some sort of law enforcement officer simply doing his duty. Or at the very least, someone who has something similar to police powers.

How this plays out in court is going to be interesting. Because as of right now, it would appear the law is designed to enforce the last man standing as the winner by default.

And I suspect this worries Florida officials.

Issa Stirs Echoes of McCarthy as Obama's 'Best Friend' in IRS Probe
Chief GOP investigator doesn't know when to let damning facts speak for themselves.
In one brief and repugnant interview, the GOP's chief congressional investigator into Internal Revenue Service abuses cherry-picked evidence, overstated his case, and violated the sacred American principle of presumed innocence.
If that was not enough, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., called White House press secretary Jay Carney a "paid liar," and couldn't explain why. "We're getting to proving it," he said.
Meet the best friend of a controversy-plagued Democratic White House: a demagogic Republican.
In a reminder of how the GOP overreached during the Clinton-era sex scandal, Issa doesn't seem capable of letting damning facts speak for themselves.
Interviewed by a smartly skeptical Candy Crowley on CNN's State of the Union, the California Republican found himself on the defensive from the start.
"Congressional investigators tell CNN the [congressional] report finds the IRS spent over $50 million on 225 employee conferences over a two-year period," Crowley said, adding that the Obama administration no longer allows spending on such training.
"So what's the hearing about?" she said. "Why are you having it?"
Issa shifted focus to the IRS's admission that its agents targeted conservative groups for review of their tax-exempt status. "Well, first of all, we're looking at the IRS for how big the problem is," he replied. "As you know as late as last week the administration is still trying to say there's a few rogue agents in Cincinnati when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington."
Note what Issa is doing. He does it all the time--start an unsubstantiated allegation with an absolute declaration ("when in fact") and follow it with weasel words ("the indication is"). This smear-and-caveat technique allows him to ruin reputations without being called a liar.
Issa is a demagogue with plausible deniability.

Mubarak had to go because like Quadhafi in Libya and Assad in Syria he had lost his legitimacy to rule the country.
All three were deposed as part of the Obama plan to install radical Islamist governments.

The Egyptian elections were a joke.

Obama's henchmen in Egypt are practicing genocide against Christians.

And murdering Americans in Libya.
