Okay, who’s surprised about this? A study shows that Far Left college professors outnumber conservatives, 12-1 (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/6/liberal-professors-outnumber-conservatives-12-1/). The researchers surveyed 40 “leading universities” and found the faculty voter registration figures to be about 3,600 Democrat to only 300 Republican. It sounds like Thermopylae.
Why the huge disparity?
The researchers reasoned–rather shrewdly, I thought–that the main cause of this has been academic disciplines “branching out” into Silly Studies–women’s studies, gender studies, Everything Is Racist studies, and all the rest of it–that no conservative professor could ever bring himself to “teach.”
Job One for our colleges is to crank out more Far Left crazies. Job Two is to expand perpetually, so as to find jobs for as many of these chowderheads as possible. That a vast swath of them are totally unemployable even by colleges is of no concern.
Public schools, teachers’ unions, our grotesquely overgrown “higher education” system–kill these, and Far Left Crazy dies. In America, at least, what we laughingly call “education” is leftism’s life support system.
That alone is ample reason to defund it.

This is the most obnoxious commercial I’ve seen in years. Something about financial planning seems to inspire ad men to their very worst efforts.
Here we have the teenage daughter playing the cello but ohnotoobad, she can’t go to the music academy because it’s too expensive and they ain’t got a pot or a window–that’s why Mommmm drives that crummy old car that stalls all the time. But unbeknownst to Little Miss Cello, Mommm has gone to Principal.com for her financial planning, and they’ve got it covered. We get to go to the dreadfully expensive music academy after all.
“I still have this car so you can afford to go,” Mommm explains. Heartstring time. They dive into each other’s arms.
Uh… where’s Daddy?
Shut up! Get out of here, Mr. Man, we don’t want you around! We don’t need you! Principal.com has got us covered. (Is Principal.com all women?)
Ah, well–is there any sacrifice too great to make for Higher Education?
Thousands of ’em, I’d say.

When you really think about the human potential, the money, and the time wasted in our colleges and looniversities, you could just sit down and cry.
Let’s tell it like it is–the idea that everyone has got to go to college is the single worst idea ever to stupefy and cripple Western civilization. Really, our own hope is to defund the colleges now and pray that the people who’ve already been there someday grow out of it. Alas, we already know that some will never grow out of it.
Seven years ago I wrote this–and the situation’s gotten worse every day since then.
As “The Vagina Monologues” are improved by never being seen again, I have opted for a more or less fanciful image of Podokesaurus.
Mt. Holyoke College, in Massachusetts, a prestige women’s college once famous for the discovery of the only known fossil of Podokesaurus–which they managed to lose in a fire–became sort of famous again in 2015 for canceling its annual showing of “The Vagina Monologues.”
They canceled this ridiculous exercise for an even more ridiculous reason: “Well, what about women who do not have vaginas? We have to be inclusive!”
Is it really necessary to mention that those “women” are… men? Or that anyone who argues that they aren’t is either delusional or evil?
Gee, I wonder if they’ve gotten any saner in the past five years.
Betcha they haven’t.

A Purdue University professor has pleaded guilty to defrauding the National Science Foundation out of $1.3 million (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13887). He used taxpayers’ money, earmarked for “research,” to hire his minor children to no-show jobs… and buy a house. He had his wife apply for the grants in her own name, then launder the money back to him.
Meanwhile, another prof at Drexel U. has paid back more than $50,000 in research grants that he spent on visits to strip clubs and sports bars. (“Well, it’s a kind of research, isn’t it?”) Drexel has agreed to pay back some $190,000 to avoid further investigation by the federal Dept. of Justice.
It was taxpayer money that was supposed to go for “research.” That means you and I had to work to earn it so the government could take it.
In 2017 Drexel received some $70 million in federal research funding.
“Higher education”–it’s slowly killing us.
