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.
Where are the faculty? American college students are increasingly resorting to brute force, and sometimes criminal violence, to shut down ideas they don’t like. Yet when such travesties occur, the faculty are, with few exceptions, missing in action, though they have themselves been given the extraordinary privilege of tenure to protect their own liberty of thought and speech. It is time for them to take their heads out of the sand.
Where are the faculty and administrators? Why aren't they sending the offending students home to rethink. Good grief, they suspend little children from school for chewing their pop tarts into the shape of a gun or the state of Idaho, depending on your imagination. Does nothing bestir the administrators to action? Are they so afraid of their students?

"American college students are increasingly resorting to brute force, and sometimes criminal violence, to shut down ideas they don’t like."
Where are the faculty? Where are the police to arrest these criminals, and where is the Dean of students to expel these thugs??
Their standing beside the rioters. They are part of the problem!
