UC Berkeley is not the socialist university it used to be my friend....besides being the top graduate school in the U.S. and #1 ranked public university in the world, the largest student organization there now is the College Republicans ..... only the poor citizens of the city itself are the hippies of old....and they are liberal morons..
Pardon me for being an old sceptic...but do you have sources for these claims?
Someone wanted them...otherwise why TEST the plane:
Here is an excerpt from Duncan Hunter’s testimony....
In terms of earmarks, let me say this. Members of Congress and particularly Members of the Armed Services Committee take their constitutional responsibility to, raise and support armies to provide and maintain a navy, and to make rules for the land and naval forces, very seriously. Every year the Armed Services Committee receives letters from nearly every Member of this body, which represent our Members efforts to share their ideas for the best ways to fulfill this responsibility. The Committee evaluates these requests and our Members are given three opportunities to amend and to vote on the requests included in our bill at the subcommittee level, full committee level, and on the House floor. As Chairman, and now Ranking Member, of the Armed Services Committee I cede my constitutional responsibility to nobody, least of all the Pentagon. While some may cast aspersions on earmarks, I guess you could call it earmarking when I added more money to the Presidents budget request for uparmored Humvees. I also added money to the budget for portable jammers that our soldiers and Marines could wear during dismounted operations. For that matter, weve added funds for body armor and have been relentless in our pursuit of alternative technologies and the development of testing standards. We have saved American lives with these earmarks, and I am proud of them.”
Judging by the 3 engineers I worked with over the last 15 years that came from Berkely, I’d say two things. THey still produce flaming leftists. And they produce engineers that can’t think their way out of a wet paper bag.
I’ve been to UC recently and have witnessed the card-table staffed by the College Republicans sitting lonely and forlorn and detested amid the teeming, pierced mob of pasty, pudgy, unwashed undergrads who yearn for nothing more than public funding for their next abortion. I’ve talked to professors and been astonished at their boiling venom that reflexively spews towards anyone to the right of Trotsky. I’ve seen the placards posted on your walls and bulletin boards and read the announcements of guest speakers and lecture series by the yowlingest avatars of the Left. I’ve parked in that parking structure where the elevator exits at a communist bookstore festooned by posters of Che and Mao.
Are we talking about the same University?
