"Such teachers cannot give their students intellectual abilities that they themselves don't have." Which is why they parrot the liberal mantra. They know nothing else.

Anyone who has been associated with teachers knows that the majority don't "parrot the liberal mantra". They have to deal with the fruits of liberal culture on a face to face basis each and every work day....unlike most of the critics.

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

Many people may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because of his charisma. But anyone familiar with the disastrous track record of charismatic political leaders around the world in the 20th century should have run for the hills when they encountered a politician with charisma.

What is scarier than any particular political policy or issue is the widespread tendency to treat political issues as personal contests in talking points -- competitive skill in fencing with words -- rather than as serious attempts to find out what the facts are and what the options are.
