      Gotta love the unity.

      I think its one thing to attack media but it almost like she is singling out conservative people on twitter.

          Dont preach unity if you have no intentions on unifying. I am sure you are to witch and moan about the other side being on the attack, no better than the prior administration if you want to go down this path.

            Dude, it's all binary to them. There is no sense in calling it out something because there is always an equivalization of how they're are so aggrieved. Remember though, it's always liberals that are the snowflakes.

            The party of anti-intellectualism is on full display.

                  Why do you even comment? You are a perfect example of why America is so divided. Agree with me or you are an idiot/stupid. Your contributions seem to be I am smart and right and if you disagree with me or have a conservative opinion you are dumb and wrong. We totally get it already.

                    We literally have a Republican Congresswoman on social media supporting the execution of Obama and Hillary Clinton, and Blazers is upset about Psaki commenting about the "circle back" memes that were on Twitter.

                    Priorities, man.

                              I literally had a full out discussion with you a couple days ago, and many times before that. Not everything is about you, relax.

                              With Leppy, he at least uses graphs and charts regarding the economy, we disagree on interpretation of them and the cause/effect.

                              In regards to the platitude of "You are why America is so divided", nah, nope, wrong. There's division because on one side you have a party that doesn't deal with legit extremists being members of their party. These are somehow equated to people like AOC/Omar as being the Left's version of MTG/Boebert, again that is so insane to even think about. Until the party deals with Gaetz/MTG/Boebert and like then you can get back to disagreeing with policy.

                              • So we are playing the "well your side did this game"? I just simply said Biden preached unity now his mouth piece seems to taking jabs. Biden wanted to be different and here we are. You guys obviously are not buying into the unity garbage either, noted.

                                • I dont see whats divisive about the lady cracking a joke about "circling back." The last girl Donald had would get a few funny digs in too.

                                    Not sure how you expect Fascists/Insurrectionists to be welcomed back into society when the gatekeepers for them STILL refuse to condemn them properly?

                                      I appreciated the convo, even the bars and graphs. My argument then was simply in the context of presidents making decisions that affect the economy. His signature immediately negatively affected the economy in NM... right, wrong, or indifferent. You guys were just trying to prove he did a good thing... sure but that was not the contect of the discussion.

                                      Your comment... "The party of anti-intellectualism is on full display." You lost me there.

                                        I actually know absolutely nothing about NM, except what I've picked up from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, so I didn't comment on that.

                                        Conservatives have railed against universities as socialist breeding grounds. I can't wrap my head around why going to university is bad. I was actually part of my school's conservative party lmao.

                                            Conservative Twitter has pointed out her flaws and apparently, she paid some attention to it. The media is garbage and will support CommiePsaki until she is replaced. They'll toss her softballs and when challenged- people will pretend conservative Twitter or the conservative party is linked to obscure voices in Georgia and try to make it look crazy and want to cancel/suppress/deplatform like they always do.

                                                That universities are liberal breeding grounds?

                                                I wasn't "radicalized" till I was working at an accounting firm. Seeing how the policies I thought I was supporting because they would help me was a crock of shit as my marginal tax rate was higher than the client's I was working for.

                                                  Going to college can be very good. But it can be an absolute disaster when kids end up going for a degree that isn't going to help them with career prospects.

                                                    Totally, STEM all the way. Otherwise you need to balance college/trades with university degrees.

                                                    Studying econ I saw a ton of papers on why the sweet spot for ROI on university degrees is for STEM subjects, and if you're a woman even better. Otherwise meh the return isn't that great.

                                                        That's a great question. I'll circle back to you.

                                                            Universities, especially those that dictate our culture, i.e., Ivy, Stanford, etc, are completely dominated by the left. Sure, there are students that have right wing politics but the institutions themselves are completely dominated by the left.

                                                            I think you can even agree:

                                                            Perhaps the reason you were radicalized by marginal tax rates after college is that universities are more eager to radicalize their students with race and gender nonsense, and are moving away from class warfare. Perhaps they're fighting the good fight, or maybe they're just not eager to point out fiscal inequities with their billion dollar endowments and high paying tenured positions

                                                              Studying econ I saw a ton of papers on why the sweet spot for ROI on university degrees is for STEM subjects, and if you're a woman even better. Otherwise meh the return isn't that great.

The number of students have been pretty level for the last decade, but they did large additions to the Nursing school, pharmacy school, and built a big ass STEM building. They built some new Ag science stuff too.

                                                              Really leaning in on taking care of the programs where the students graduating will be in a position to donate in the future.

                                                              We already had a very nice business school. Let the shitty psych and communications majors use the dumpy old buildings lmaoooo

                                                                I'm not 100% in support or against the idea that ivy league type schools dominate culture. A lot of my fellow neckbeards in the progressive neck of the woods are pretty indifferent to those schools. Sure they do some ridiculous faux progressive type things that get everyone riled up but I don't think anyone on the Left will towards a bunch of "nerds" as cultural leaders.

                                                                I agree that universities are highly problematic (hiding investigations from the public, huge endowments, astronomical tuition etc.), 100% agree with you on that. I think though, it's a necessary evil to participate in the go-around that is post-secondary for people STEM-inclined. The attitude of not going to university because they're "liberal breeding grounds" is pure insanity and so backwards - not saying you have that attitude but I've seen it here.

                                                                I'd say 75% of us in my accounting graduating class were pretty firm conservatives and the liberal side of things was mostly coming from the non-STEM majors. This was a top-3 accounting school in CAD, so the attitude was that non-STEM majors were to be seen not heard lol.

I had a lot of atheist professors and somehow most of my lectures turned into a long rant on some social justice topic. I dont know how many mock scenarios I had to listen to that involved the Christian father beating the gay out of thier son. It seems to be the goto example scenario in every example. Even in my training for my first job as a CPS case worker it was the go-to scenario.

She could have simply explained that this will be normal for her in case anyone has any questions. I like that she will do a follow up. How many times do you see media at any level fail to follow up or circle back on a story?

Once had a professor that was actually professional and introduced a book countering the “accepted” facts. The book was peer reviewed and everything. There was a mini protest about the book. Several students refused to read and participate in the discussions because it went against “everything we’ve been taught” since undergrad. 6 + years of being fed the same story with no exploration of other theories or possibilities will do that to you.

Ie religious dad beating up his gay son. There’s literally millions of scenarios of abuse, neglect, assault, sex assault, homicide...etc that happen within the left side of society. The go-to talking point is always on the right. That’s the problem.

I thought the obvious assumption was there would be social justice topics discussed in a social work lecture. I would think even those on the liberal side would agree the Christian dad beating the gay out of his son was probably overplayed. It was like a broken record... "lets go back to gay son scenario".

                                                                                            What is even more disturbing is I did my internship with a company that has a Christian foundation. When doing assignments related to my internship they learned it was a Christian organization, my professor and guidance office tried to discredit and fail me saying if they would have known the program had a Christian foundation they would have not approved this internship. We sort of had a "hearing" of sorts and I brought in the CEO of the company and another professor to have my back. They said they took issue with "the church" having guiding principles that go against the goals of social work. Luckily the CEO and professor laid out a good case and they "reluctantly" accepted the internship. I ended with a C for those 6 internship credits. That was in 2006/2007, its probably safe to assume ish has gotten worse since then.

Okayyy pal. I dropped it and picked up Russian film. Which was actually pretty interesting. I'm sorry you had an overbearing asshats as part of your college experience.

Must be liberal bias.

                                                                                                    Every day was a bashing session on the straight white nuclear family. I loved it. One of the few large lecture classes I took where I made an effort to attend. Goofy classes like that can be really fun, like Ron Swanson going to a Whole Foods.

                                                                                                    The only other "progressive" class experience I recall was an entire unit on women in late Western Civilization. I didn't understand why we had to learn about them as a unit instead of peppering them in with their appropriate time units in the class. I got wrecked on that exam. Whoops.

                                                                                                    Business school classes were not remotely political at all. Then again I'm not sure how you make a class about pricing fixed income securities political.
