What makes some people IMMATURELY contend that a person is a PURE liberal or conservative
in his/her beliefs when an evolved, thinking, & intelligent person realizes that no person is a pure liberal or conservative in his/her beliefs & that his/her beliefs are a combination of both liberal & conservative?

Equal representation in the media, in Hollywood, in academia and in public unions...?By all polls, the American people is approx. 40% conservative, 40% liberal and 20% moderate. Yet 90% of academia professors are liberal. How come?

Is anyone else here feeling pretty much turned off by the elitist moderators on HubPages?Their explanations for allowing some questions to stand and banning others are beyond lame. Then there is that "thing" of banning decent people without explanation and choosing not to respond to...
