If you wonder how California got “that way,” read this article. It details the experiences of a conservative student who attended the University of California-Irvine for four years and never had even one non-leftist professor. He says it wasn’t a school, it was a PC indoctrination center where the students voted to ban the American flag as “hate speech,” and professors spent their class time relentlessly attacking America, slamming gun owners, calling students racists and the President an “idiot,” promoting Marxism and in one Latino studies class, attacking the Border Patrol for arresting Mexican drug gangs. And this was his experience in getting a finance degree!
Maybe that explains why California has a projected budget deficit of $1.6 billion and unfunded liabilities and debt totaling nearly $400 billion. Just a word of caution for parents who are bracing to pay a lot of money to send their kids off to college: pick the college wisely. Too many colleges these days take the concept of teaching “liberal arts” much too literally.
