    Kinda like Roger and me and just as much real information being presented.

    I have already had one conversation with this professor regarding incorrect information being presented to the class and he seemed to accept it, even said he would take a close look at what I had to say, but he has not bothered to correct himself in class.

    Well today, going over the Bill of Rights, he stated that "most constitutional scholars agree that the second amendment clearly states that this is a collective right reserved to the states in the form of a national guard and not an individual right". He then went on to say that while there is some disagreement, that stance is the accepted one and that the Supreme Court has never ruled on the second specifically.

    Well, I couldn't help myself. I attempted to once again educate him. I told him I took exception with his statement that "most constitutional scholars ..." and pointed out that it was in fact the opposite, with even some scholars who were firmly anti agreeing that it was an individual liberty and, in their opinion, should be overturned via the amendment process. I also began quoting both Madison and Mason, specifically Mason's definition of the militia. I thought he would appreciate that as he frequently attempts to speak about founder's intent.

    All I earned for my efforts were a condescending smile and, I am quite sure, intense scrutiny on the essay portion of the upcoming test. And what were all the young students doing during this? Why rapidly taking notes of everything that came out of this man's mouth.

    To say I am angry would be a bit of an understatement.

    Those who can, do.

    Those who can't become whiney, socialist college professors.

    Why not bring him the list of "constitutional scholars" and the titles of their law review articles?

    After this last discussion I get the distinct impression that his mind is made up and he doesn't want to be confused with the facts. It just angers me that someone so intellectually dishonest is allowed to teach a mandatory course on the constitution and government.

    How do you think certain big lies are perpetuated. In liberal academia that's not a design flaw, it's a product feature.

    I put this together three or four years ago. Feel free to pass it on.

    Have fun with Prof. Libtard. BTW, is he tenured? If you can't educate him, get rid of him.

    The only way to get rid of him would be to drop the class.

    I would be shocked if someone could get a professor fired for upholding the liberal side of this issue. Even if it is wrong.
