HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH!!  "...progressive???"   What a
crock! ;-)

Folks,

That's what I think after spending 4 long years at a major NY university
and being subjected [no pity, no tears, just sharing some facts w/
ya'll] to the left-wings' [hereafter referred to as "they"] disgusting
agenda along with 10,000 other unaware
[at least initially] undergrads who were maliciously bilked by the likes
of NYPIRG, harassed by socialist "student" [I use this term lightly
since some were as old as my parents....yah, 40 yr. olds reliving their
pinko youth] orgs. and other leftist groups who consistently aggravated
the delicate university campus balance....

And, oh yah, if I recall correctly it wasn't the "right-wing" gang that
took over -- in a rather violent fashion -- the administration's office
building.  Ya see, "they" used the pretext of protecting the students
against massive tuition hikes by big 'n bad 'ole Albany, while pushing
their backward 'n underhanded agenda....

In retrospect one can only laugh at this gunk "they" write -- included
above for your reading pleasure........just, please, remember to
recycle! :)

Regards,
