Q: WHAT DO CIVILIAN PROFESSORS HAVE AT THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY THAT FLAGLER COLLEGE PROFESSORS DON'T HAVE IN ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA?
A: Tenure. Source: New York Times Magazine.
Why on Earth would anyone want to teach in a place without tenure?
Why would anyone want to go to a "college" without tenure?
I mean, the WILLIAM L. PROCTOR LIBRARY rules actually forbid bathing suits. Think of the mentality that writes such rules -- cognitive misers who are control freaks.
Students are forbidden to raise their hands and ask questions at the Flagler College Forum -- questions from students and residents are written on cards, and hand-picked by political conservatives.
The student newspaper (The Gargoyle) has been censored by administrators.
Students are forbidden to visit the rooms of students of the opposite sex.
Faculty members fear the meanness of the meanest man in St. Augustine, Florida -- WILLIAM L. PROCTOR, who has long been called "Massa Proctor" by terrorized staff.
The students are treated like sheep-people (sheeple) by Chancellor WILLIAM L. PROCTOR, the very, very Republican Lord of all he Surveys, who refuses to pay reasonable payments in lieu of taxes to the City of St. Augustine.
Flagler College has more in common with the Professional Golf Association than with any "college" that shows students dignity, respect and consideration.
Fortunately, there's a strong Democrat running against PROCTOR -- Doug Courtney, who has respect for working people and a strong business and computer background. He's an author and patentee. He thinks for himself. And he's humble.
