    You know, reading this article I can't help but see words like, "entrenched," "stranglehold," "socialist," "domination," and "bias" in reference to the so-called "problem" that is said to be afflicting our nation's higher educational institutions.

    Obviously this article was taken from a purely conservative blog or other publication and can't be taken seriously due to its narrow and unobjective point of view.

    And I have something for you to think about. If conservative ideas are so great, then why have the most educated people in our nation [see university professors] embraced liberal ideas? Why hasn't conservatism, in all its righteousness, overtaken the evils presented by these freethinking, progressivist professors? And why haven't conservative professors established a "beachhead" in these liberal institutions through which they could have launched a D-Day offensive backed by God and righteousness to thwart the vast liberal conspiracy that is being delivered upon America's precious youth?

    Dictionary.com defines:

    Conservative - Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.

    Liberal - Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

    I ask you, where's the evil in liberalism? In my opinion, it would be evil to educate under a strict, traditional dogma and oppose questioning or change. But you know me, I'm one of those crazy liberal fanatics--a soldier in the vast liberal conspiracy to take over the world.

    The vast liberal conspiracy is an uphill battle waged against all three branches of the US government, which are currently being protected and kept in trust for us all by our conservative majority. Yet somehow, the vast liberal conspiracy still seems to be always at the ready, ready to strike against our conservative protecters and spread their evil liberal poison into the vein of US society, thereby rotting away at our traditional belief system with the spread of their infectious ideology of environmentalism, scientific theory, peace, and tolerance. C'mon, Gimme a break of that KitKat bar.

    Funny how conservatives want to destroy the environment, turn the US Gov. into a theocracy, stop the long western tradition of science in its tracks, and other things that don't seem so conservative after all.

    Most academics are jealous of business people, so they denigrate the very concept of business.

    My roommate is an accounting major and is in our business school and I would rather gorge my eyeballs out than sit through one accounting class. When he graduates, he'll spend every waking hour of his work week sitting in a cubicle punching numbers. Now, jealousy is not one of the things I feel in regard to him or his classmates, so I don't know how you would come to this conclusion. Could you get back to me on this?

    Hey, whaddayaknow? I've got a partisan website to post too:

    The curriculum may be "boring" in your eyes. That''s typical of leftist short term thinking.

    Professors and academics are jealous as shit of people who go into the business world and make twice, three times, four times their salary. They're trying to change society so their leftist wacky ideas are worshipped and they are given power just for being so damn smart. Reality isn't like that. They are maladjusted to it.

    Or possibly academics dont care about the buisness folk, because the Academics are doing somthing in a field that they love.
    Which is not to say that the buisness people do not love there jobs just that a person can have a lower paying job and still prefer it to the higher paying one.

    Don't think so. They're bitter and jelous. They obviously care; that's why they're so foaming, partisan and envy-filled.

    Some prefer apples, some prefer oranges. And others have double majors.
