    Oh, college did teach me civics. The student government taught me that if you ever turn your back on them for a second, they'll hamstring you for their own, personal gain. They tried to hike our tuition to fund the debate team...THE DEBATE TEAM! Psst...over 90% of the student gov't is on the debate team.

    Yeah, I tend to agree. What's passed off as 'politics' is usually at least half a bunch of partisan bullcrap.

    Thanks for proving my point, rather the author's. Universities and now high schools are not teaching civics, but rather indoctrination into the left.
