and the Constitution you should have no trouble graduating. Thus, you have the lefts definition of "world class education." You may not be able to find a job but do you really need one in an entitlement society?

Don't forget the blinders, wt. I witnessed the beginning and steady - very crafty - liberal points and indoctrination infused into the school systems. You, unfortunately were infected. Bummer.

Ah yes, I forgot about that incredibly liberal education I received in the middle of MISSOURI. Regardless of what the curriculum says, you really think predominately white, middle class teachers in Missouri turned their students into a bunch of hippies? Hardly.

Most of my family is staunchly Catholic, and even more staunchly conservative. That's the indoctrination I received since birth. However, I was lucky to grow up in a community with 3 colleges and a land-grant research university, and I saw first-hand that my grandfather's description of the black community didn't add up to my own experiences, and that some of the other lessons I had been taught had equal difficulty when confronted with real life.

Open your eyes.

Onward...

Simply by your spelling, and the way you describe education, it is painfully apparent that higher education escaped your grasp.

It is interesting to me that, when faced with the fact that those with an education were becoming increasingly progressive, the right suddenly announced to the world that it was due to the fact that schools were nothing more than liberal indoctrination centers.

It couldn't be that when one starts to think for themselves, the Republican mantras begin to unravel...

In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: "In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man."

Obama appears to have held on to most of his percentage of the black vote from 2008 -- even though the black unemployment rate in October reached 14.3 percent. Emmanuel Cleaver, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus, admitted: "If (former President)...
