Making a point

I visited my brother and mentioned how many colleges were indoctrinating students.

Later, I asked my nephew if men and women are different. He wanted to know why I asked this question. I told him it was to show a point. He asked me what is the point. I told him first he would need to answer if men and women are different. My nephew demanded to know why I was asking this. I said to show a point. While my nephew was savagely screaming something, I turned to my brother and said, “You get the point I’m trying to make?”

    You probably should have pulled down his pants to make sure of the tool set he is carrying. One of my nephews is 17 now and not yet sure if he likes boys or girls. His mom says it's OK and he will figure it out and his dad is so beside himself he went out and bought a gun safe to be sure his troubled son could not get near them.

    It scares young people to engage in any discussion, conversations are a stretch for them. They have been so brainwashed in Gov. schools when it comes to gender, they are completely messed up.
    My first response to liberals is to require they drop talking points and rephrase in their own words, which they can't. They have no concept of logic or reason, so it is fun to talk them under the table, so easy.

    I no longer get involved in that kind of activity. Instead, I egg people on. The other day I got my (now liberal since he started collecting social security) dad to agree that N. Korea should have nukes, that borders should be open, and that I shouldn't own guns. I just have fun with it. Can even get him to agree that I should pay more taxes, etc. People are nuts. Just have fun with it. Never argue with a crazy person...

      I have been collecting Social Security because of the unemployment's running out, and it has not turned me into a "liberal". (Though I have always been a classical liberal, like Jefferson, but it's not the same thing; I am against the welfare state).
      I did not want to be on Social Security, and I am still trying to get a job. But then I think, that if the young people are paying for it, a lot of them have been voting for more and more welfare-statism, and it's their own d*** fault. But I still don't want to be on it. I want to get a job and work until I drop dead.

    I'm amazed how college indoctrination can form such strong opinions about subjects and opinions not even based on facts, in fact just the opposite. As far as being adamant beyond normal, such as "savagely screaming" I would have presumed that's a function of DNA, or is it too from possible indoctrination? But then again, I've got a Grandniece that lost her mother to alcohol, then earned a full scholarship to UW, plans on becoming an FBI Agent, and tells me about the intended liberal indoctrination at school which she ignores. She's plenty smart enough to see through it all.

    Me dino has just learned how to avoid being accused of not being politically correct.
    Not being PC these days must lump you in with all those "isms" libs accuse Trump of having.

    Well, who knows? How old is your nephew? (Maybe he had been acting like a peeping Tom and thought you had found out and wanted to know what he had found out).
    But really, maybe he had some idealogical position and was afraid of not being able to defend it.

      Let’s just say my nephew recently completed his second year in a state college in the state of California.

      Earlier I had offhandedly mentioned to someone else that this global warming was overblown. My nephew had overheard and I could see by his expression that he just couldn’t believe someone could think that.

        I remember in an Objectivist article (written by Ayn Rand or Branden--I think it was her) about the way the collectivism position was treated just as if it had already been proven, and that it was an "undiscussable axiom." (I hope I didn't misspell what she said).

    Your answer should have been, "Because I value your opinion, and you may have learned something beyond what I was taught in college"...

    I think the better option is to get them talking. Eventually they find themselves twisted in a loop. they either have an AHA moment or break down into despair, (okay, some crack and scream like crazy people)...

    At my age, my grandchildren are about the same age as your children. My son thinks pretty much as I do.He is an engineer and a muckymuck in a famous restaurant chain. So, between the both of us, Grandson got his head on straight..But granddaughter who went to college out of town, is as far left as her arms will stretch.Grandpa can no longer debate his darling girl 'cause it gets grandma upset.
    She might have an epiphany before I go up the golden steps to the white tunnel ending at the Pearly Gates.(Did I cover everything?) On the other side my Atman will become part of the great all, or stand before the throne of God, or be assigned to a reincarnation as a slug.
