Ignorance is Bliss

Timothy Birdnow

If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Lao Tzu

But if you live in the present you had best buy a lock for your underdrawers; you are about to get the big one.

In life it is necessary to live in past, present, and future.

1 Yes, it is -- in order to have any sense of perspective, which is what my old college professor said was the reason to study history.

2 SMM Panel India appreciates you sharing knowledge with us, and smmheart appreciates it very much. You made my job as simple as ABC, and we will always be in awe of what you've accomplished.

3 Well you old college prof was right. Rare; a sensible college professor!

4 That was back in 1964, before colleges had started to go to hell. This guy was wonderful -- and never let on which side of the aisle he was on.

5 Yeah; that was before the Left seized control in the late '60's. You could still find a few such professors.

6 Yes... at Hillsdale College, for example.

7 Hillsdale is about the last college the Left doesn't own.

As my brother points out the universities will eventually hire just one leftist who will keep quiet and remain in place until he or she becomes a depeartment chair then they will open the floodgates. Once they are in a position of authority they will run all the conservatives out and put in all the leftists. Tenure keeps them there too.

So in the end even a good Christian school becomes a snakepit of leftist ideology.
