Skip to comments.A Freeper's Observation. A Non-Recommendation for education.
Posted on 07/24/2003 4:38:41 AM PDT by E.G.C.
As those who know me are well aware, I'm a life long resident of Southwest Oklahoma. I know the people of this area very well as I was born and raised here.
One of the things I always try to do is promote some of the good things about this region that I know and love so much. Things like Ft. Sill, the Chisolm Trail, the Wichita Mountains, etc.
However, there are a few things that I sometimes have to recommend against. For the simple reason that my principles come first in terms of loyality ahead of other stuff like the place I've lived in all my life.
That place is Cameron University.
When my dad graduated in the 1940's the main focus was on education. At the time it was an aggie university.
I've started to notice however that the place had deveoped a prejudice against conservatives and chrsitians.
The professor of politics tried to get the Lawton Constitution to drop Walter Williams colum simply beacuase he was "too conservative for the mainstream. I've also seen where some Bill Clinton butt kissing perverts who write regularly to this newspaper have given this professor and the university a ringing endorsment, I guess because they think their viewpoints are neutral and they're in the majority which is a lie and they know it.
But yesterday on KSWO'TV's Good Morning Texoma, I saw in their community calander where Cameron's theater department is going to present a play badmouthing my favorite radio format, conservative talk radio.
Now, I ask you. Is this the kind of school you want to take your kids to? A place which mistreats conservatives and bad-mouths everything they stand for.
Folks, Southwest Oklahoma is a conservative majority region of the country. The vast majority of us in this region voted for George W. Bush in 2000 and for Right to Work last year. I can assure you that Cameron University with it's liberal mindset DOES NOT reflect the ideas or values that Southwest Oklahoma represents.
There are far better places to attend college after you get out of high school like Oklaoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma of the Nazerine in Bethany, or you could try a home college course from places like Liberty University in Virginia. The list goes on and on.
The moral of this story is you don't need a college degree from a Democrat butt-kissing university to get a job or launch a career. Anybody that says otherwise is an idiot.
The bottom line, if you're looking for a college to university and you're a conservative or christian, Cameron University is not the place for you. There are far better places to attend college.
The name of the play is "Tlakradio". If I remember my recollection they said that it was about "a caustic talk host who gets more than he bargained for."
The impression I got was that all conservative talk radio is caustic. That's sterotyping in my opinion.
Number 3, of my great laments in life, is that I am not from Oklahoma, but California. No.1, is that I was born too late to fly with the "Eagle Squadrons" in WWII and No. 2 is that I am too big to be a jockey.
Regards, Oklahoma, Buck.
Thanks everybody for your participation in this thread. I'm going to walk out the door in about an hour from now and get this morning's edition of the Lawton Constitution.
Based on the recommendations of a freeper on this thread I will recommend OBU and St. Gregory's in Shawnee.
Incidintally isn't that where our current govenor Brad Henry is from.
Audtions are Monday in the communication building at Cameron. They're going to perform this play at the Great Plains auditorium.
The play tells the story of Barry Champlain, a fictional talk radio host in Cleveland whose local call-in showis about to be syndicated nationally, if he can impress the new producers.
And according to the article this production contains mature language and content.
Pretty interesting stuff.
