‘School Board Puts Lid on Homework’ (2017)

See the source image

Following a national trend to avoid stressing out the students, my hometown school board put strict limits on the amount of homework that could be assigned.

School Board Puts Lid on Homework

“Ten minutes per grade level,” eh? Not that every teacher is going to assign homework every night, because then they’d have to grade it. But what if the same assignment takes Moe only five minutes to complete, Larry ten minutes, and Curly twenty? Shut up, he explained.

Public education is destroying us.

‘College Idiocy Du Jour’ (2017)

See the source image

They call it education.

If this travesty of an election is allowed to stand, we will see a great deal more of this wicked foolishness in our colleges and universities. They will not get better. They will get worse. Worse even than this.

College Idiocy du Jour

If there ever was an institution fanatically devoted to the destruction of the society that created it, fed it, and made it grow, that institution is “higher education.” But then leftids have turned all our institutions against us, haven’t they?

We want our country back.

Our Universities: Waste, Waste, Waste

Cynical Theories - Audiobook

This was an unusual book review for me to do because the content of Critical/Cynical Theories is about as close as you can come to pure gibberish while still using the alphabet. It’s not the authors’ fault, but that’s what you get when you quote the Far Left Crazy.

https://chalcedon.edu/blog/critical-cynical-theories-a-book-review

The authors, a couple of liberals, fear that the Far Left will go too far and drive everybody else into the arms of the Far Right. Can’t happen soon enough, sez I.

As you plod through the verbal swamps of Far Left babble, you can’t avoid being appalled by the colossal waste that is “higher education”–waste of money, time, effort, and anything else that they can think of wasting. The billions of dollars spent every year to generate this garbage and drill it into the empty heads of gullible students constitutes a sin: the sin of incontinence. The money would be better spent on amusement parks.

The American people need to wake up and realize that they’re being scammed, if not outright robbed. For all the money they spend on higher education, they’re only getting garbage for it. As for the alumni who support these idiot factories with lavish gifts of money, shame on them: they have to stop doing it.

This is the result of insisting that everyone, no matter how intellectually undistinguished, must go to college.

Read a few chapters of this book and see if your head doesn’t start pounding.

 

‘Another Real-World Fantasy’ (2011)

Image result for images of village of the damned

We fantasy writers can’t dream up things half as weird as the stuff we actually live with every day. For instance, Judaism without God. Like so:

Another Real-World Fantasy

Just what we needed! A “secular humanist Sunday school,” sponsored by a “Temple” (a temple of what?), dedicated to “social justice” and “diversity”–sort of like bringing cars to a California freeway.

I wonder if we could pinpoint exactly when “diversity” came to mean a hive mind.

UK: Teaching ‘Critical Race Theory’ in Schools is ‘Breaking the Law’

Kemi Badenoch: I'm black but I'm also a woman, a mum and an MP | London  Evening Standard

Kemi Badenoch–go ahead, call her a white supremacist

This from the United Kingdom’s Minister for Equities, Kemi Badenoch:

“I want to be absolutely clear this government stands unequivocally against critical race theory” (https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/21/uk-minister-teaching-white-privilege-and-critical-race-theory-in-schools-is-illegal/). And so is “teaching Black Lives Matter ideology,” she added.

Question: What are they going to do about it? How do they make it stop?

“Critical Race Theory” propounds that all white people are racists, inherently guilty of racism, etc., etc. Here in America, President Donald Trump recently banned CRT teaching within the various federal bureaucracies–largely funded by white Americans’ tax dollars.

To teach “inherited guilt” and “white privilege” as if they were facts, Ms. Badenoch said, is not education but “politics”–and is against the law. Or, to put it another way, it’s nothing but race-hustling and hate-mongering. If anyone “taught” inherited black guilt, it’d be prosecuted as a hate crime. But everything’s a one-way street with the Far Left Crazy.

Again, what are they going to do about it?

We’re waiting.

How the University Wastes Your Money

23 Best Alarm Clocks for Heavy Sleepers - WiseStep

Could we wake up now, please–while there’s still something left for us to wake up to?

If you missed Walter Williams’ column on townhall.com yesterday (https://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2020/10/21/disgusting-professorial-teachings-n2578378), “Disgusting Professorial Teachings,” read it today.

Yes, our colleges and universities are chock-full of race-baiting swabs posing as professors; but I wish to draw your particular attention to some information given toward the end of the column.

At the University of Pennsylvania, the looniversity’s Chief Diversity Officer earns a salary of $580,000 a year. That’s right–over half a million dollars. And for what?

At the University of Michigan, the Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion (what the hell–?) and the Chief Diversity Officer are paid $385,000 a year.

Elsewhere, throughout the land, chief diversity scammers are paid $200,000 a year and up.

This is your money, people! You worked for it. You pay it out in tuition and your taxes. And look what you’re getting for it! C’mon–how many of you even know what a “vice provost for equity and inclusion” is? But you’re paying for it.

Stop, stop, stop, stop the waste! Williams suggests the alumni zip their checkbooks shut. Even better if the rest of us simply stop sending our kids there.

Oh–and you’re paying for those disgusting professorial teachings, too.

College: Shut It Down

When it’s too late to get your tuition money back…

Does anything good get done at any university? Not that I’ve heard of.

Meanwhile, the University of Minnesota offers a two-hour lecture, with academic credit, on “Recovery from Whitness” (https://www.thecollegefix.com/university-of-minnesota-lecture-features-12-step-recovery-program-for-whiteness/). ‘Cause, see, bein’ white is bad-bad-bad!

This crock features “a 12-step program,” a la Alcoholics Anonymous, “that helps people recover from their whiteness.”

Why are people sending their children to this place–and paying through the nose to do it? Why is there government funding for it? Why are we paying these moral imbeciles to addle young people’s minds and wack out our country? How is it that none of this–not a word of it–is not considered hate speech? Can you imagine the reaction, if they had something called “recovery from blackness”? The solar system couldn’t contain the outrage.

As a nation we must have a damned big screw loose, to allow this.

Yo, college! You want to recover from Whiteness? Let’s see how you do without white people’s money!

And non-whites, be patient: when they’ve finished with white people, they’ll turn on you. And when they’ve finally eaten everybody, they’ll eat themselves.

That’s Satan’s plan, at least.

Cal U. Wastes $800G Trying to Shut Down Satire

Eight hundred thousand smackers. That’s what California University spent trying to silence The Koala, a satirical student newspaper that mocked the university for “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/california-university-spends-800000-trying-shut-down-satirical-student-newspaper-fails).

The university’s student soviet–sorry! should be “student government”–complained about the paper–which had $450 funding from the university–and university officials moved to quash the satire. Now they’ll have to pay The Koala $12,000 in damages and another $150,000 in attorneys’ fees, plus over $600,000 for their own attorneys’ fees. Your tuition (and tax) dollars at work!

The ruling was handed down by the 9th Circuit Court. The original lawsuit was filed by The Koala’s editors five years ago.

So we still have the freedom to make fun of fat-heads and the tyrannical restrictions they try to impose on our First Amendment rights.

Why do we continue to fund these so-called universities? They’re nothing but Far Left indoctrination farms. They do nothing but try to make us less free. Why do we have to pay them to screw up our country?

It’s time to stop the funding. Let them sink or swim in the free market.

‘Ooh! That’s Religion!’ (2012)

See the source image

I can’t forget this incident, which happened in the same school in which I spent grades K-5.

Ooh! That’s religion!

A friend sent her daughter to this school, and the girl came home babbling about “the power of the earth,” magical spells, and whatnot. So it’s not like the Educators forbid all religion. Just Christianity.

And, my fellow Christians and conservatives–have you thought about all the trouble we’ll get into if Democrats win this year’s elections? They won’t settle for teaching kids to make shocked noises at us.

Prof Defies ‘Diversity’ Bullies–and Wins

jeffrey poelvoorde - News Break

He wins, the bad guys lose.

How about a little good news, for a change?

A professor of politics at Converse College, South Carolina, has kept his job after refusing to take “mandatory diversity training.”

Associate Professor Jeff Poelvoorde called the mandatory indoctrination “an assault to the dignity and intelligence of the professoriate, in fact, an insult to anyone’s intelligence and dignity” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15739).

Three cheers.

The college had threatened him with termination if he didn’t take the so-called course; but when he stood up to them, they backed down. They must’ve known they couldn’t possibly win an inevitable lawsuit, and didn’t want to shell out for damages.

Could we have a lot more of this, please! Here’s a brave man who’s shown the way–follow him through the breach. “Diversity training” is garbage that has to be scooped up and thrown away forever.
