  1. Did the NSBA realize their rhetoric was out of line? I am guessing the original DOJ request will cost some elections. The DOJ made a mistake taking this on. Are they backing off now? https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/23/nsba-apologizes-letter-linking-rowdy-school-board-/ “On behalf of NSBA, we regret and apologize for the letter,” said the NSBA memo. “There was no justification for some of the language included in the letter. We should have had a better process in place to allow for consultation on a communication of this significance. We apologize also for the strain and stress this situation has caused you and your organizations.”
  2. That’s because Manchin and Sinema won’t let him spend any money. Just kidding.
  3. A quick google search showed mostly conservative news outlets running with this story. At least the top ten hits. NIH admits gain of function research in Wuhan. maybe this should go in media bias. Maybe more outlets will show up later or it’s not considered relevant by some outlets and overly reported on by others. https://www.yahoo.com/now/nih-admits-funding-gain-function-125103852.html
  4. I couldn’t find the CNN video I watched. I think it was Setzer’s show. I did find this article. Sorry if it is paywalled. I was able to read it. All just theories at this point. 1) finding other ways to make money. 2) Not getting assistance as a privileged group. 3) Feeling that college is more expensive than it is worth. 4) Giving up/lost 5) a sharp increase during the pandemic due to #4 or needing to provide for family. https://www.wsj.com/articles/college-university-fall-higher-education-men-women-enrollment-admissions-back-to-school-11630948233
  5. Can I ask what school? I have heard only a couple complaints from kids, so far, but many of the kids I know in college are liberal or don’t care. The conservative kids went to private or small state colleges. The two complaints came from larger universities. CU and CSU.
  6. This topic really touched a nerve. Do you feel conservatives groups, students, and speakers have a voice at the larger coastal/urban flagship schools? People seem to be separating by ideology, religion, identity, even intentionally separated by race in dormitories at some universities. That seems like a bad direction to be headed. What do you think has caused the large decline in male (sorry if this is the wrong term) enrollment at universities in the last 1/2 decade? I just learned about this recently from a video on CNN. The guest was concerned about the long term consequences for our society. I was shocked.
  7. I Don’t remember liberal indoctrination when I went to college in the prior century. They were also both technical degrees. Although some of my more enjoyable classes were in the liberal arts.
  8. CNN, FOX, Times, The Posts, WSJ, other feeds I guess. Trump dominated CNN for 4 years, and the pandemic. It’s more likely I am just reading other articles. Can’t read everything.
  9. Yes. Two degrees, but it was a long time ago. This made me laugh. Thanks.
  10. First SW Airlines and now In n Out Burger. I know so many Californians that are nuts over In-n-Out I can only imagine how upset they will be if the government shuts them down. https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2021/10/19/covid-in-n-out-burger-fight-san-francisco-health-officials-vax-protocols/ “We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason,” the statement read. “We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.”
  11. There is a reporter from NPR...can’t remember her name...but I think she is or was a White House correspondent. I consider her left bias, and out of the mainstream. ...But that is just one reporter. Is NPR only radio? I never see much sourced from them. Is FOX #1? They claim to beat CNN and MSNBC, but I consider both of those liberal outlets. If you combined their ratings does FOX still win? Plus what about the audiences of ABC, CBS and NBC? Not sure about this Newsmax outlet, but I doubt they have much audience to contribute.
  12. Liberal. Haven’t heard much about climate change lately. Mask usage was all over the map and in some cases nonsensical, but still encouraged. It’s not that the media gets everything wrong, but they are still bias not only in how they report, but also what choose to report on. If a story is important enough I will read it from a liberal source and a conservative one. The difference is noticeable.
  13. My memory only goes back a few years. It is true that oil prices may not have had anything to do with Trump policies, but I think OPEC tried to produce a ton of oil to lower the prices and kill fracking. Not for environmental reasons either. Just wanted to burry the competition. my electric bill jumped a lot when the COOP got hit because of regulations on their new coal plant a couple administrations ago. However, it actually may have been more to do with losing their cooperative government subsidies put in by Reagan. I am ok with that. Make them compete.
  14. Conservatives college students exist? I suggest instead of protesting just don’t show up if you will be offended or better yet go politely listen to an alternative viewpoint.
