MakeMeaSammitch

Are you serious? Every large civil rights movment in the past century has been by left wingers. They devote their entire lives to complaining about being persecuted.

to be fair, black people and women sort of were persecuted.

It's low even by your standards to put down the civil rights movement.

That quote is going in my blog

Laihendi has put down the Civil Rights movement plenty of times before.

Abusing their position within the school yes, bullying no. Being taken aside and losing his own time on the instruction of a teacher is just wrong but he could walk away, he had no obligation to stand and listen to the teacher ranting on and the principle appeared to have been decent. Just a whiny teen who thinks the world is against him.

Teachers / Professors are always going to be biased towards their own viewpoint....The best academic decision I made was to pretend to think like they do and translate it to my papers.

His geography teacher told him he was stupid, misguided, and wrong for being active in the local political scene? I dont believe that for a second. I may come from a small town in Western Maryland, but I have never had a teacher belittle anybody for there choice in after school activities. Nearly all of the teachers took an interest in our personal lives if we were open to discussing them. They just wanted us to succeed in whatever we wanted to do. Sure, there are the few idiot teachers but honestly? I dont believe the kid. I know its not like this everywhere, which is a shame, but I really have trouble believing the boy.

The right wing these days seems to thrive on being "persecuted." I think they do it to distract from the real persecution that comes from their side of the aisle, like trying to stop gays from getting married and what not. If they had good arguments/policies/values, they wouldn't have to rely so much on whining about the oh so mean liberals! :cry:

What makes a good argument? What makes a good value? Good is subjective and what one person considers good can very well be thought of as garbage by someone else and it happens on this forum more often than not. There are many threads on this forum attacking conservatives for being naive or just plain stupid, yet when someone tries to show the opposite side of the coin, they get lambasted as having stupid or dumb ideas. That just goes to show the hypocrisy of OT liberals here, just as you have shown your hypocrisy in this thread. Liberals, all inclusive my rear end.

Many degrees are worthless things like sociology that are designed to instill a worldview rather than actually provide a practical skill, so it is to be expected that extreme liberals would be well represented by those graduated college. Do you think a man like Hank Rearden needs to go to college? Of course not. The point is that libertarians are very well represented among college graduates (the 2nd best after extreme liberals) and that is despite the institutions being clearly biased in favour of liberals, and being designed to instill a liberal world-view.

Because you're trying to argue semantics and trying to enlarge definitions until you're close to right. In reality welfare refers to a means tested program which public education is not. " a : aid in the form of money or necessities for those in need b : an agency or program through which such aid is distributed " Public education does not fit into this. Are you angry though? Normally you wouldn't ":lol:" or insult people like that.

I admit that the stupidity and ignorance flaunted by liberals here is enough to make any rational person go insane if he took it seriously. I have spent the past several months showing respect to you people while you ridiculed me, despite the irrationality of your arguments. I am done with that. If you do not want to be called a troll, then do not troll me. If you do not want to be called an idiot, then do not present yourself as one. If you want a civil debate, then say something intelligent. On topic - Who is arguing semantics? I provided a definition for "welfare" that is consistent with 1. The dictionary 2. social security 3. Medicare 4. Medicaid 5. Food stamps and, 6. Public education By the meaning given to the word "welfare" by me and the dictionary, public education is a welfare program. Even by the definition you provided it is still a welfare program. If public education is not designed for those in need of it who could not afford education if it was privatized, then that brings the entire purpose of public education into question. What is the point of the government subsidizing education if people do not need education to be subsidized to be able to afford it?

So defining the terms that you use in order to clarify your statement is "arguing semantics". Interesting. I always thought that arguing semantics meant attacking the definitions someone provides for the terms he uses in his statement (what you are doing), rather than actually addressing his statement.
