At least this leftist is honest

It's rare for hard-lefties to be this honest. But what worries me is that there would be numerous universities who would love her position, embrace her with open arms and indenture her for a lecturing career with a fast track to the top. Ellsworth Toohey in a skirt!

    This offers another good reason for raising the voting age to 50.

        It is because the voting age is so low and eligibility is not confined to people with "skin in the game" (ie., people who pay the bill) that it seems to have become pointless. That's not to say that it actually is pointless because if all concerned citizens actually did vote, the government we'd have would more reflect the majority. As it is, the only "concerned" citizens who vote with any regularity are the left while they ACTIVELY demoralize the right's desire to vote. And many on the right fall for it EVERY time.

          Back in our history class, we were taught about our revolt against the Crown, with one of our tenets fighting 'taxation without representation'. It seems now we have representation without taxation; too many without skin in the game.

            Quite frankly, I'm not being represented at all. And, I pay my "fair share" of taxes. I did not ask for, nor do I approve of at least 85% of what they spend my money on. I'm sure that is true with a majority of people who do pay taxes.

            I live in California. I have NEVER voted for a democrat. Yet the only representation available to me is a democrat. So, I have never been represented.

    She has no idea what the difference between politics and economics is. She seems to equate political rights and economic "rights", believing political rights were achieved by leftist policy which naturally extends to the economic sphere. The inversion she represents is astonishing.

    I hope more and more of these people come across with this honesty so others can objectively review the real agenda of these totalitarians.

    Don't bury the lead: RUMOR OF CONSERVATIVE SPEECH AT HARVARD. (Full disclosure. $5Au took one course at Harvard and, incredibly, the prof covered economics without political commentary. He might be fired if this is discovered.)

      Reminds me of the time at work when I complained that Stanford MBA's were "taught that soon after graduation, they would shoot up the corporate ladder as God's Gift to All Businesses."

      A manager standing nearby turned and asked, "Did you know I've got a Stanford MBA?"

      I replied, "No, I didn't, but was there anything in my statement you'd disagree with?"

      He paused an instant in thought and then answered, "No, not really."

      We're still friends ....

    I am astounded that extreme coercion is invoked for the purpose of advancing "liberalism". That label has lost any reasonable meaning.
    Mussolini, the founder of fascism was a socialist before that. Hiller's movement was called "national socialism". A short definition of socialism is: expropriation of privately owned businesses.
    Any time the "liberals" pronounce the word liberalism, Thomas Jefferson takes a 360 in his grave.
    EDIT: missing article

    Eliminating freedom of speech in the name of "jus-
    tice"?! Does she think justice can be had apart
    from freedom? So "at least" she is honest? As I
    quoted the other day, "Hypocrisy is the homage
    vice pays to virtue." What she is is brazen.

    I believe that this is what comes of public
    education. Government control of education
    can, and will, and does, and must, lead to gov-
    ernment thought control.

    I guess you can't reason with a mindless, brain only, 180 degree opposed viewless point.
    When one tries, they make it illegal.
    It's like trying to wake up islams bicameral slumber, no matter what you say or do, it's just not in their experience nor vocabulary.
