Upon further review and hearing of a news story out of UNLV another
reason for being quiet and having no expressed opinions outside of
one's home. A student there was offended by a comment a professor
made while teaching ECONOMICS. While looking at case studies about
financial planning across a broad spectrum (Single/married,
with/without children, race, religion, age) the teacher suggested
sexuality and if one group they were looking at did not plan for
retirement because of their homosexuality? A student complained and
the teacher will not get tenure or a salary increase because of the
complaint. The teacher is suing the school and I hope he wins. But
that illustrates the point, say something that someone does not agree
with and you can face disciplinary charges if said in a public place.

This is not the America my parents and grandparents fought to preserve!!!
