Roy,
You won't remember me at all(and this has nothing to do with this specific post but I couldn't figure out specifically how to contact you and I've wanted to tell you this for some time forgetting you had a blog) so my name is somewhat irrelevant. I took your class 2 years ago as a conservative and didn't like/wasn't receptive to your views... it was liberal propaganda to me at the time. Fast forward two years later and I'm a policy debater at Cal State Fullerton and hanging around with feminists, transgender rights activists, and those who oppose racist institutions. Despite me being not particularly receptive to your class or teachings at the time your class was my first introduction to semi radical politics which would eventually lead to me now identifying as a feminist and advocate for social justice. I haven't gone to IVC since 2012 and have no access to my old account but I would really enjoy contacting you or possibly being able to read some philosophers. I am currently majoring in communication studies so some of it may be a bit over my head, but if you would be willing to respond with your email I would enjoy contacting you. Most of all I would like to thank you though, who'd have thought a conservative white kid born with privilege and conservative parents would change his views so much in just 3 years, and you were the starting point. Thank you.

Hey there! This is Rebel Girl, Professor Bauer's office mate. His college email address remains the same - rbauer@ivc.edu

I am sure he'd love to hear from you.

1:59 is not believable. Most become conservative as they mature, not the other way around. Here is something for the libs to chew on:

You mean we made it all up?
You're a fucking idiot.

That "most" eventually become more conservative as they mature is consistent with some becoming less so. Right?
Most that continue in academia after getting their Bachelors get more liberal or progressive, not more conservative.
10:24, you are a remarkable jackass

Like spoiled children, anytime someone voices a view contrary to yours, you people freak out, call names and drop the F-bomb. I guess if we wish to participate we should just believe everything you say. Thanks for showing your true colors...

On the free college: Don't you think the plan sets to bar way too low?
