We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
If ever there were a case for gender equality, you could make it with tax dollars and public universities. In which case you'd have to let in 51% women, and 49% men or what ever the real societal makeup is.
No percentage for trannies and hermies. Pick a dongle or a recepticle and go with it.
Having witnessed "non-partisan" committees in action before, I can strongly recommend that you NOT take as a serious indicator the proclaimed political identity of these people--nor for that matter can you even take their proclaimed sexuality as an indicator of non-bias. I believe it would be a safe bet to say the decisions that will be forthcoming from this committee have already been made and are currently being "crafted" into some type of speech, or press release! You can also feel comfortable in knowing that this is really the same kind of committee that the black shirts and communists used in Italy and Russia. This is TERRIFYING and it is INTENDED to be just that! HOW dare any school's administration stand up and pursue their own agenda, their own students, their own curriculum--that is just not tolerated in this country anymore! AND YOU SHALL BE PUNISHED!
The colleges and universities have become a hostile work environment for males so males stay away. My favorite example of this is the Duke University lacrosse team. The faculty behaved like a lynch mob screaming "hang them, we don't need a trial."
Girls do better than boys in high school. This can be due to developmental/genetic/cultural differences and/or that high school is structured to be more friendly to girls than boys. Do colleges admit on basis of grades/academic achievement, or on diversity/affirmative action?
Whites do better than blacks in high school. This can be due to genetic/cultural differences between whites and blacks and/or that high school is structured to be more friendly to whites than blacks. Do colleges admit on basis of grades/academic achievement, or on diversity/affirmative action?
Ivy League colleges and most other colleges give preferential treatment to athletes.
Does this discriminate against people who dedicate themselves to getting good grades/academic achivement, or does this provide diversity on campus?
Between a rock and a hard place. As the criteria of quality and diversity/affirmative action can contradict each other in some way, depending on the criteria one uses,the Feds can put the screws on any institute of higher education that receives Federal funds, if they so choose.
