Notre Dame joined the impolite exodus of uninformed graduates by walking out of their own graduation because they didn’t ‘approve’ of the person asked to give the graduation address. This time, their ill manners were directed at Vice President Pence.
I think their actions reveal the shallow depths of their personalities, intelligence, and their preparation for the real world. They are walking out of the last safe space of like-minded brains who left early to face the world they really don’t understand nor feel a need to learn about. An intellectual person can not only proclaim but listen to various ideas with an open mind and not the usual open fist they employ to show their supremacy. Their attention deficit problem was revealed the moment they knew that the Vice President would be making the presentation. If questioned as exited, would they have been able to express exactly what offended them about his speech? No, because they have become so ‘learned’ and impressed with their own concocted views, listening to someone else might cause them to, perhaps, question some of their preconceived ideas and send them to their idea of the ‘dark side’ to find out some truths.
Book learning is admirable but the real world doesn’t always get them the jobs they think they are deserving upon graduation. Manners go further than snarling. Humbleness is realizing that there is more to the world outside the college campus than liberal professors and coddling. Yes, you can probably be a person of ‘note’ and make some headlines spouting half-baked agendas from your parents’ basement but listening to another’s viewpoint just might open your closed mind to another aspect of the world.
Congratulations to the graduates, whether they agreed with Vice President Pence or not, who showed upbringing and manners by staying to listen to what he had to say. For the ones that pompously stomped out, take the little test in the picture above. Can YOU see what’s wrong with this picture?
The devastating waste of college money by parents is coming to light as they discover that instead of learning how to earn a living and being a proper citizen, they seem to feel that life can be snuffed out without a qualm. So much determined ignorance being spewed forth from this baby-faced pro-abort liberal.
I remember how many of the supposedly pro-life Catholics voted in a president two terms in a row who made abortion basically the law of the land. Just shows you that many Catholics either don’t know their Faith or felt ‘issues’ were more important than a living, breathing child. Hope this student never reproduces until he understand the miracle of a child given by God.
Remember when young American men gave up college, home and family to insure the freedom of this country and help defend other countries. How strong, determined, or able are today’s 18-25 year olds when it comes to sacrifice and dedication? And, the world doesn’t help with making things easier and relaxing rules to the detriment of actually functioning as a strong soldier.
People will argue that soldiers need to be ‘nicer’ and that police shouldn’t be so ‘mean’ . . . until you are a victim of a crime or uninvited forces are coming over our border intent on war.
This laxness is getting to be prevalent in many avenues of life and education. We are told math is racist and shouldn’t be taught. Anyone for going to a doctor, pilot, contractor, etc., who can’t do math? Women get a break in military and police training so how’s that going to work out when they can’t pick up the slack when needed in a life or death situation?
Hard to believe that saying anything that doesn’t agree with someone can land you in hot water. That making a statement about your viewpoint can earn you a fine. The future doesn’t look too great when the ones that should be building it are weeping over mean words and patting puppies.
This woman looks like she could use some protein! She wasted her time researching the effect of meat on meat-eating males? The world is in turmoil, people are being murdered, countries are being attacked and she wants to limit meat to make ‘everything all right’ to her limited world view?
“Too much of what is called ‘education’ is little more than an expensive isolation from reality.”
