It doesn't take a political scientist to understand most every college campus out there today is staffed with radically liberal professors. And it's getting worse every year. Many students have admitted to writing papers that support these professors radical views, in order to receive passing grades. It's always been bad. Now it's off the charts. Socialism sells, pure and simple. The more of this type of crap that goes unchecked, the worse this will become. Just look at the attitudes of some here on public education, along with who should pay for it. Attitudes like that are taught. They don't develop out of thin air.

There are a lot of age-restricted or adult-oriented communities here which are very popular, no way of denying that. I've never seen a place with so many retirement or age-specific communities other than perhaps Florida.

I think you're just bitter because you happened to meet a few old farts who don't like to be around children for whatever reason. It's really none of your business anyway if some people don't like kids, or wish to not pay these ridiculous school taxes.

I'm not an old fart (just a middle age fart), but I admit to preferring a child free lifestyle and not wanting to live around a bunch of loud, annoying brats. Nothing wrong with that, and there's nothing wrong with communities like the Sun Cities where age restrictions are in place. The bleeding heart liberals basically forced kids and families on childless people & retirees with their fair housing laws (which are anything but fair)!

This is the exact reason why Bernie Sanders has seen such a meteoric rise in several states. All his babble about "free" everything, including education, has all of these people chomping at the bit. The sad part is they don't understand there is no such thing as "free". They don't care that someone else has to pay, just as long as it isn't them. They're all taught that wealth is "evil", and no one should have to be self reliant. Rich, old, white people are the cause of all of this. Instead, the government should always be the one's to "provide". Be it health care, education, housing, name it. Forget the fact the government produces nothing, and cannot give anything to anyone, without first having to take it from someone else. That doesn't resonate with any of them, because they simply don't care. Just as long as they take it from someone else, and give it to them.

Bernie's nonsense knows no bounds. He say's burger flippers should all be paid $15.00 an hour....... Out of one side of his mouth. Then out of the other side he say's the tax rate should by 90%. That makes that same burger flipper's take home pay $1.50 and hour. This he say's is a "living wage". No matter, these millennial's gobble it all up, and come back for more. The easiest thing to do, is take someone who has generated a pack of kids they mostly can't afford to raise, and convince them it's some poor, old, decrepit retired person, who has worked their entire life, that should be the one's to pay for it. And the hits just keep on comin'.
I completely agree! Thankfully, I highly doubt we'll have Bernie Sanders as President, but we stand a good chance of getting Hillary who isn't much better. About 15 or 20 years ago, Sanders would have been rejected by the Democrats for being too far to the left. If he ran for President back then, he would have been a member of the Green party ... however, many Democrats now embrace him, which is further proof how the party has become more socialist than ever!

I don't know what this possibly has to do with the topic on hand, except for you to find another thing to complain about and spout your antiquated beliefs. While we're at it, let's really take America back... to 1906. Let's bring back child labor, because those small hands can easily fit inside machines and they can work 12-hour days like they used to, and their tax money can pay for their own education, and it's about time those lazy brats pull their own weight. Never mind that America was pretty much a third world country at the time, and didn't become what it is today until the government boosted education funding, at least we'll get back to our roots. Quite in fact, European manufacturing could have been outsourced to America for cheaper labor through the early 20th century. I suppose if it bothers you that much, you could put your money where your mouth is and boycott advances education has brought us, including (and especially) medical advances and the internet.

That being said, to the OP, I don't know what you're talking about as the Valley not being child-friendly. I personally hate living around kids and very meticulously research parts of town to avoid living near them, and it isn't always easy to do when I have to balance other things (proximity to work, amenities, etc.), which make places like Sun City unappealing to me. For me, it's been very hard to find a place that meets most of my criteria, including fewer kids around, as most places around town cater to families. For me, I found a Central Phoenix apartment that I suspect discriminates based on sexual orientation (in that few heterosexuals and/or families live in it, and many get denied when applying), but that's perfectly legal in Arizona and works to my benefit. In sum: I think the opposite is true in that it's hard to find a wide variety of things to do that are for adults only.

It certainly has a lot more to do with it than all of the nonsense you just posted.

Here's the Proof That Professors Are Raving Liberals - Mic

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/verdi...eNoSplash=true
Here at the University of Arizona where I study there's plenty of conservative professors. My major focuses a lot on healthcare systems and many of the professors in my major have shown criticism towards the Affordable Care Act. While the professors who actually teach about healthcare systems actually show support for the ACA many also do not. And I will admit my major is definitely more favored towards socialism due to the fact a lot of it is run through government/non-profit programs. So it's rather shocking. However most of my professors so far, in my minor (Business, in fact none of my business professors have been liberal) and in my general education courses have been conservative. I have heard a lot of the law professors are conservative as well here but I can't quote on that exactly.

This isn't to say that my University has a liberal majority for faculty. It does. But that doesn't mean conservative professors don't exist. A lot of my K-12 here in Arizona were conservative too.

Ouch. I cut myself on that sharp wit of yours. I would think you'd be more supportive of education then, because you can't seem to fathom that this thread is about child-friendly areas of the Valley, and could stand to take some classes, as I'm sure there are plenty that cater to people of your presumably advanced age. Instead, you stepped up on a soapbox with your "The End is Nigh" sign to talk about the demise of America because yourefuse to adapt with the times. The OP wrote about child-friendly areas, you wrote about liberal professors in universities. No, those do not have much to do with each other. The thread is about children, you wrote about adults. The thread is about Valley-specific topics, you wrote about general universities. It really isn't that difficult to understand.

Sure but we're discussing AZ. I went to 2 of our 3 state colleges for 3 different studies. UA was more liberal than ASU but both had a good share of Conservative professors. Especially in the business and law schools. Moreover my K12 experience in the NW Valley was also very conservative.

There isn't indoctrination, college is about learning and part of that is hearing a variety of positions on issues. Only the uneducated find this diversity to be an issue and smart students recognize that view points differ

So what? You think Arizona schools are immune from liberalism? You talk like it doesn't exist here.
