Complete Idiots

I have long been suspicious of employers who use the presence or lack of a college degree as a knock out factor in hiring practices. The reasons for this are many. I would understand the reason if one were hiring a nuclear physicist, a biologist, or just about any medical practitioner. To use the assumption that one is assured a well educated, well versed, and historically astute job candidate in many other fields is ridiculous. I am grateful to Steven Crowder for shedding some light on the absolute ignorance which he encountered on a college campus.

This is the video he assembled at the University of California (Berkeley) that ask students some questions about aspects of current and historical American life which my readers learned in elementary and high school. You must see this even though it is embarrassing to watch these morons fumble, mumble and parrot the false teaching which they have received. If this represents the future of our country, we are in serious trouble. I would truly like to believe these folks will learn the folly of some of their responses to his questions as they further their education. I would also sometimes like to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

I fully realize that UC Berkely is one of the most far left campus environments in the nation. I would be much more comfortable if I thought that they were singular in their politicizing of every aspect of life from a warped socialist perspective. They are not. They are joined by most of the roster of America's so-called "fine" universities to one extreme or another. Why any responsible parent would allow his children to be subjected to this political mumbo-jumbo is a mystery to me. Further, why any kid would go on the hook for the price of a house and a car for the privilege of being socially indoctrinated is also a puzzle. This is a scam of epic proportions.

If they can produce one research scientist who comes up with a lifesaving cure for some dread disease, does that allow them to over-indoctrinate hundreds of others to a governmental system which will result in the deaths of millions? In the long run, it would be better to teach them to properly articulate, "Do you want fries with that?" When I attended the University of Colorado back in the early sixties, the Principles of Retailing 304 prof asked for a ten letter word with no repeated letters which could be readily used as a letter-numeric code for price tags. I quickly responded, "REPUBLICAN." Better, I had responded with an expletive. The general response was groans and moans and shock that I would use the word in a public place. In fairness, I was also managing one of Boulder's premier furniture stores at the time and we coded cost prices using that very system.That anecdote is now about 47 years old and the situation has gotten worse and not better.

While watching Crowder's video, I hope you become imbued with alarm and a desire to intrude into the lives of anyone who is subject to the brainwashing on today's college campuses.

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
