Killing Liberal Colleges
« on: July 29, 2018, 04:13:26 PM »
Just for shits and grins, II though I'd toss out some red meat for the left.
Bare with me, I'm just kidding, but I have a solution for the left's cry for free college.

Let us offer them free college, but there's a hitch, it has to be in the hard sciences, not freakin anthropology or anything like that, but actual science like math based degrees.  :biggrin: (SJW run for safe spaces)
Give subsidies for trade schools in manufacturing as in engine repair, actual working trades.
How fast do you think liberal degrees would disappear?

OK, just a conversation starter, but using history as a guide, the left always gets its way, eventually, so let's kneecap them before they can institute free college for all.
Just half serious...

Fact based education will still be taught with a bias.
First Amendment isn't just Freedom Of Speech, it's Freedom Of Conscience.

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like one.

True, to a point, the sciences, aside from the climate scientist nonsense they recently created, math profs aren't generally politically motivated, math knows no bias.

This is why the government is in the student loan business. A bank is not going to give a student loan to someone who wants a degree in gender studies or lesbian basket weaving because they know the kid will never get a job and pay back the loan.

Even if they can't or don't fudge the actual information, you still have a Liberal effecting the grades.

Nothing even remotely close to what kids are getting with a liberal arts degree or equivalent. I also said trade schools, which are generally run by conservative businessmen.

Liberalism would instantly die off.  Nothing squashes liberalism like the real world, where results matter because lives are on the line, financially and literally.  If you make a mistake designing a bridge and it collapses, people die.  In academia, the professor knocks points off your grade, and possibly according to his politics.

I honestly think a case could be made for this, especially when you compare our nations math scores with other countries, we're literally in a crisis.
Not that I want it to happen, but every program leftists ever promoted, eventually took root and look where we are now.
So I can kind of see nipping this in the bud er rather, cutting off the diseased limbs to save the tree.

Medical school is a hard science. Are they teaching that a trans-woman is a woman instead of biologically a man? Will they screw my grade if I don't say a trans-woman is a woman? Will they push Universal Healthcare, the idea that healthcare is a right, or that making a lot of money is "greedy" or "wrong" or "not the right reason to want to be a doctor"?

Why are the discussing diversity on the application process? Are they only going to allow minorities with lower grades in and not allow white males in because I have some type of made up privilege? Do I need to start worrying about my new doctor doesn't know what they are doing?

Solar makes sense. If the government is going to subsidize college it should subsidize college as long as the kids are learning actual skills that will get them jobs so they can contribute to the economy.

It has to be like truck driving school: We will train you but you will have to work for us.

Gee, I don't know, why don't you dig up your, "What Ifs" and post them as evidence that every medical school in the country is run by leftist Profs.

So you agree, with my theory, that disallowing the schools to set diversity standards, is a good idea?
Yanking money out of their hands over discrimination would kill the left, they can't exist without taxpayer money.

Exactly!
They already steal an exorbitant amount of taxpayer dollars, probably more than enough to teach any student that wants to be a doctor.
Of course, this will have to be taken from the diversity budget of all liberal arts programs, and God only knows what else these Marxist indoctrination centers spend our money on.

The VA is already doing it. It's called Residency.

I discovered a medical student forum that addresses it. Since they are actually in medical school, I will take their word on it that it is a real thing. Plus, I read some other discussion postings addressing related issues.

Diversity is a code word for anti-white. That is also why I mentioned somebody getting accepted because of the color of their skin (and possibly low grades) instead of the person with the grades for medical school (or law school for that matter).
