Isn’t learning supposed to be a part of higher education?  Opening our minds to new ideas, learning about the world, thinking.  Well, Florida politicians didn’t get the memo.  According to them, we should be allowed to sue a professor who either presents an idea that we don’t agree with, or asks us to present a logical, well-thought out argument to defend our opinions.  I guess thinking should be against the law now. 

This has got to be the most asinine piece of legislation that I have ever seen.  It makes me so angry that people would even begin to support this bullshit.  I can not believe I used to consider myself a moderate…stupidity like this is making me hate the Neo-Cons.  Hate.  I was annoyed with the true conservatives, even though I didn’t agree with them, they had logical arguments that made sense, just came from a different point of view.  The Neo-cons have blinded the conservatives and conned them into thinking they are the same thing.  Unlike the conservatives, the Neo-Cons are fiscally irresponsible, and rely on laws to limit personal freedom instead of supporting personal responsibility (which true conservatives are really into), and are actively working to destroy our constitution.

On a really ironic, sad note, here are some of the quotes people keep throwing around to support these actions:  

“Large numbers of revolutionary young people . . . have become courageous and daring path breakers. Through the media of big-character posters and great debates, they argue things out, expose and criticize thoroughly, and launch resolute attacks on the open and hidden representatives of the bourgeoisie.”

“In this great Cultural Revolution, the phenomenon of our schools being dominated by bourgeois intellectuals must be completely changed.”

“The more books you read, the more stupid you become”

Quiz:  who was the originator of these quotes. 

 

 

 

Answer:  Mao Tse Tung, Communist leader of China

How is it that the Neo-Cons are quoting Communists, and then claiming the liberals are Communists?  Hmmm.
