That person who spoke out against Israel was a selective bigot who doesn't actually believe the charges she libels the Jewish state with. That person was male. You're evidently not familiar with the case. During the most recent Gaza war a scholar on race relations made some overly impassioned tweet...

Sounds like my search for the well informed gun controller, equally fruitless. Are you talking social conservatives here, or any old kind? I mean, SoCons really are the bottom of the barrel, but economic conservatives are pretty rational in general. According to Haidt, they're the most likely to pa...

How does law enforcement operate with an anti-black bias considering how much crime blacks engage in against fellow blacks, as well as other non-whites? Blacks and whites smoke pot at approximately the same rate, yet blacks are more likely to be arrested for it. Blacks also tend to receive harsher ...

Good to see you back Orwell, I took a short break from here because some of the posters were getting beyond ridiculous. BTW I have decided that whilst I admire and wish for Marxian economics and democracy, it can never happen, people are simply to self centred and no amount of culture change will s...

Where is this bastion of non-politicized schooling you're associated with A major public research university, at the moment. Previously a mid-sized private university. and how, as a Leftist, do you know when the things instructors say aren't left-leaning bias, Because of basic self-awareness? It is...

No I expect you Orwell to doubt anything that makes the Left, look, bad, or totalitarian, etc. Since when is the left "totalitarian?" Most professors go to great pains to avoid advancing political or moral stances in the classroom? lmao, okay, and at what colleges do these professors teac...

Oh goody, another right-wing persecution complex. :roll: Several things on your silly list are simple facts. Many are bizarre caricatures that few or no people even believe. Very few are standard components of the typical college curriculum. Most professors go to great pains to avoid advancing polit...

I'll happily take bets on the outcome of Democratic nomination. Even give you odds; 5:1 for either Bernie or Biden.

You said "More poor people have become rich here than anywhere else". That's obviously talking about social mobility. Orwell showed that wasn't true. All you did was show that people in the USA want to be rich, not that they succeed. To expand on that: the obvious way to measure whether R...

What the walrus said. Measurable, quantifiable facts. Income and class mobility is lower in the US than in other developed countries. Check the academic literature on the topic. Real life in America is not a Horatio Alger fable. Here we rank 3rd which is still far better than your gloomy “facts” on...

Oh, right. Autistic forum. Getting hung up on terminology is par for the course here. The term GMO only refers to organisms who's DNA was modified with the use of modern genetic engineering techniques. If you can't understand that, then you don't understand language. Think about it like this: If the...

One of my pet peeves is when someone claims that GMO and selective breeding are equivalent. Some particularly ignorant people even go so far as to claim that selective breeding results in GMOs. First of all, the term GMO was explicitly coined to refer to organisms who's genome has been altered by c...

More poor people have become rich here than anywhere else because capitalism does reward. Wrong, like most everything else you say, but this one is so baldly, measurably wrong that it's comical. Socio-economic mobility is lower in America than in almost any other developed nation (Britain does slig...
