University physical sciences professor came under fire this week from mental health campaigners and students after he suggested undergraduates will have to work hard and abstain from (drugs) drinking to pass the course.
Eugene Terentjev draw the fury of students and mental health activists after sending out an email last week to first-year natural sciences undergraduates at Cambridge, telling them the course will be difficult and thus they should refrain from drinking and other social activities if they wish to succeed.
Professor Terentjev said “Physical sciences is a VERY hard subject, which will require ALL of your attention and your FULL brain capacity (and for a large fraction of you, even that will not be quite enough).” (to pass the course.)
The professor’s comments caused an uproar among activists and students, who called his email “extremely damaging” and neither “appropriate nor acceptable”, with one other university vice-chancellor accusing Terentjev of “frightening impressionable undergraduates.”
Snowflakes, buttercups, mama’s baby’s have been lied to for their entire life’s. They have been told they are special and they can do no wrong, they need do nothing to be successful in life.
No one can tell students the truth. The truth may hurt their ego and over sensitive feeling of well being.
Don’t tell them the truth, that they really are not special.
Don’t tell them they must study and work hard to succeed.
Don’t tell them the truth that some of them will fail to pass the course.
If students can’t handle the truth about university classes, how the hell will they handle life out of university in the hard cold unforgiving work force?
Snowflakes and Buttercup’s are beyond simply ignorant. Ignorant people can be educated, these people are just uncommonly stupid and everyone knows you can’t fix stupid.
Helpless cries to primal screams, liberals protested the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s election by huddling together in public spaces and howling from sea to shining sea.
One year after Donald Trump’s historic win over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, hundreds of anti-Trump protesters gathered in locales such as New York City’s Washington Square Park for an event urging attendees to “scream helplessly at the sky.
Left wing Refuse Fascism group, which is associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party, showed up with signs, drums and a host of chants.
A group of Young Republicans showed up to hand out earplugs to anyone passing by.
Will it take a civil war to take our country out of the hands of socialist and communist political correct idiots?
Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends.
Millennials are turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.
Nearly 45 percent of millennials polled said that they would prefer to live in a socialist country compared to the 42 percent who said they preferred a capitalist one. Another 7 percent said that the preferred living in a communist country
Americans in their 20s consider former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin a hero, despite his genocide of Ukrainians and Orthodox priests. Over 25 percent of millennials polled also thought the same for Vladimir Lenin and Kim Jong Un.
Over 40 percent of Americans believe that there should be restrictions placed on the First Amendment and free speech to ensure that anything being said is not “offensive.
This highlights widespread historical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.
McCain condemns isolationist politics, calls it ‘unpatriotic’
McCain said “To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is unpatriotic.
Here is a personal message for John McCain.
I served two tours in Vietnam.
I am offended by you attack on my patriotism. Putting America first, enforcing America’s immigration laws, securing America’s borders, protecting American citizens from enemies foreign and domestic does not make my ideas and opinions ‘half-baked, spurious nationalism’ nor do they make me unpatriotic.
Mr. McCain engage your brain before operating your mouth, get a backbone, stop lining your pockets with ‘special’ interest money and do what is right, what is in America and American citizens best interest.
Ames High School has the unfortunate distinction of having one of the most un-American marching bands in the nation.
More than a dozen members of the band linked arms and walked off the football field Friday night during a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” An untold number of other band members refused to play their instruments.
Ames High School marching band must be disbanded for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year. Ames High School Marching Bands actions are offensive, un-patriotic and un-American.

Dozens of NFL players refused to stand for the national anthem.
Many players took a knee or sat during the anthem, while some entire teams remained in the locker room.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin attacks Alejandro Villanueva for standing for national anthem.
A former Army Ranger, Villanueva was the only player from the team to break from the coach’s orders and come out of the tunnel to stand for The Star Spangled Banner.
Former Army Ranger, Villanueva said “I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year,”
It seems that many NFL players have taken one to many hits to the head and are either ignorant or just stupid.
Those that are as disgusted with the NFL and many of it’s players as I am should boycott the NFL, it’s players and NFL advertisers.
The loss of 150 million fans and game viewers will send a message to the NFL, team owners, players and advertisers disrespecting America, our military men and women, our national anthem, our flag will not be supported or tolerated and is just cause to boycott the NFL, players and advertisers until they publicly apologize to America for their inappropriate and disrespectful actions.
Remember it’s just a game. Beyond their entrainment value the NFL and players serve no useful purpose in society.
Why is common sense so uncommon?
