Mike Adams

If you've never read anything by Mike Adams you've got to check out some of his commentary. Some of the stuff that is happening at the college classes in our country is unbelievable. One of his latest is about a college professor in California (Professor Clifton Snider at CSULB) who basically uses his English 100 class as a time to espose and push his political views.

Check out part of the CSULB website that Prof. Snider uses to describe possible paper topics. At the top Dr. Snider has even commented on Mike Adams' article - he unfortunately doesn't link to the article (available at or try to rebute the article.

In the section where he has topics that shouldn't be covered in the classes' argument paper he says, "Topics on which there is, in my opinion, no other side apart from chauvinistic, religious, or bigoted opinions and pseudo-science (for example, female circumcision, prayer in public schools, same-sex marriage, the so-called faith-based initiative, abortion, hate crime laws, the existence of the Holocaust, and so-called creationism). "

Arguments/paper topics that are suggested include "What evidence do we have that Mr. Bush and his cronies lied to the American people and the world in promoting the war with Iraq? Do you agree that America has lost its "moral authority" in the world because of this immoral war?"

or "George W. Bush's time in the National Guard presents important questions about the character of a man who has sent hundreds of Americans to their deaths in war and killed and maimed untold thousands of others. "

or "Although George W. Bush said he would support the national continuation of the ban on assault weapons, he did nothing to urge Congress to pass it. Without such congressional action, the ban expired on the 13th of September 2004."

How does this clown still have a job? How is a English Professor allowed to use tax dollars to pontificate his ignorant views of politics on students at CSULB?

No other side to the abortion debate? Really? What planet does he live on? Pseudo-science? Would that be all the embryology textbooks that say human life begins at conception? My guess is that it is just easier for Prof. Snider to stick his fingers in his ultra-liberal ears and scream his out of the mainstream lungs out instead of actually confronting an argument.
