Why would a professor teach things that a obviously false? Are they holding on to the past? Are they wishing them true? Political views? Are they trying to play a role in developing their view one class room at a time collectively? I wonder if it is a personal choice or a model that is passed down from higher up. I know my text book is biased, but my professor has a even more so yet subtle agenda.

I've been in the work force a long time. I am old enough and wise enough to see these things. I also follow local trends and national and world news. I can't help but wonder why someone would want to give false information to young students who pay for a class.

That is very simple. The dirty hippy scumbags of the sixties now control our universities. The same vermon that were spitting on our troops returning from Vietnam are now teaching our young people. Not to mention that some college professors are some of the biggest dumbasses that I have ever met. That is not all of them of course, our universities are full of brilliant minds, but the kind you are describing typically lack any intellectual curosity or real teaching ability. Propaganda is all they know.
Once such POS from Washington State University still owes me $100.00 from a bet about the 2000 election and outrageous claims he was making, when I challendged him and of course he ould not back up what he was claiming.

The professor is probably wishing and hoping to wake the class up, so please don't just sit there like a knot on the log saying nothing. Just speak up and see what happens.

The one's I have seen or talked to are basically left wing nutcases..

They have never done anything else, except a few...

They started kindergarten, then grade school, then high, school, college, post graduate school, and ended up teaching in colleges, and that's where they STAYED.... They only have each other to talk to, thus many live in a dream world and don't have a clue..

They rewrite History, teach theroy and crap that isn't true, and flip out if they are called on it...Students HAVE to listen to their nonsense because they are a captive audience....BUT, the good news is most figure it out with a little maturity and exposure to the outside world:)

You do have a point ... But the Prof. Is in charge, not the student ... My way or the highway ...

Always count on you to play the race card in any conversation. Must be sad to be so racist.

That is not the way it is supposed to be bug. Universities are supposed to be the place where differing ideas are aired and accepted.
I had a college professor who looked, dressed and pretty much thought like Castro, but he never tried to suppress anyone's ideas or speech. As a matter of fact, he loved to engage conservatives.

I believe those of us posting here on this thread grew up in a time when liberal ideas seemed more appealing.. to me at least, so I wasn't OFFENDED by left wing professors, and in some cases agreed with them...After listening to the same old same old, especially about American policy here and there, from Vietnam, to Afghanistan and everything in between, I came to the conclusion they are basicall full of it..

I get tired of being told how wrong and how big a horse's "A" we are to the rest of the world.. NOBODY can be wrong all of the time, not even the United Sates:)

I went four years, got a degree and then Uncle Sam tried to educate me for two..His lessons weren't a lot of fun and our own citizens educated me more....They pretty much hated our guts.....For awhile I hated theirs, but like everyone else, we put it behind us and finally the country caught up.
....Uncle Sam also paid for a couple of more years after I got out...As I mentioned many times before, Jimmy Carter was the final straw for me, so I left the far left, and so far I haven't found much in their tired old rants to bring me back.

Sam gave me a good foundation, I do better by experience, school of hard knocks ... Was very successful ... Employed many degreed cats that didn't know azz from hole in ground.

Some professors are liberal, some conservative, and some are anti government. Most professors don't care what your views are, but tell you theirs in order to establish a dialogue in class. A good debate is a professors wet dream.
